Little Hands & Big Helpers: An Origin Story

Ahoy there, artsy adventurers and Kraken-up Krafters! 🎨 Gather ’round, ’cause I’ve got a tale to share that’s brimming with creative whirlwinds and a treasure trove of colors. All hands on deck – we’ve set sail on an art-adventure with my pint-sized Picassos, Robin and Andy!

So, here’s the skinny: Robin, my six-year-old mastermind, started the year with a “New Year’s Art-solution” – she wanted her very own art gallery showing. Yeah, no biggie! But after some procrastination and a gentle nudge (or two) from Robin’s side-eye, we hoisted the sails and charted our course into the vast sea of creativity.

Now, I’ve got to confess, I’m no stranger to the artsy world. Crochet hooks, paintbrushes, charcoal, mosaic, clay – you name it, I’ve romanced it! But ever since my crew expanded, the lil’ art-loving pirate Robin became my partner in creative crime. From food coloring and Play-Doh to gel pens and acrylics, our art explorations know no bounds!

Oh, and there’s my other matey, Andy. He’s still dipping his toes in the artistic waters, but give him a brush and an open sea of colors, and he’s splashing away like a true free spirit. Messy? Sure! But hey, what’s creativity without a little chaos, am I right?

Now, hold on to your pirate hats ’cause things just got even more exciting! My husband, bless his art-loving soul, has been nudging me to unleash my Kraken of creativity. And guess what? Robin’s infectious passion made me take the leap!

So, Robin and I swaggered into an “official meeting” (yeah, we felt like big-shot pirates!) with the head honchos of Darling Art School and our local library. The mission? A winter-themed art extravaganza with acrylic paintings. Robin was stoked, and we celebrated with ice cream and mandatory selfies – ’cause that’s how we roll!

But wait, there’s more! This isn’t just a mom-daughter art party – oh no, this ship’s big enough for a whole fleet! We’ve teamed up with the local art school, and now our art adventure will host around 45 families, with our masterpieces sailing through the library from December 23 to January 24.

The summer was a wild ride of brainstorming, ordering, and family craft nights – even Dad got artsy with us! We’ve already had our first event, and I must say, it was a blast! Stay tuned, mates, for there’s more creativity on the horizon, and we can’t wait to share this colorful voyage with all of you!

So grab your brushes, dust off those palettes, and join us on this Kraken-up Kraft adventure – the high seas of art await! 🎨🏴‍☠️🦑
