craft monday :: painting

This week I am a little light on the inspiration for craft monday. It was an easy saturday of craft with Keely, as it has been a very hard few days. I honestly fell asleep on my bed on saturday while Keely watched a dvd and played in the lounge room. I was incredibly tired from Taj getting up every 2 hours to cuddle me. He does lay next to me, but he kept waking in pain and snuggling right on top of me. It was very sweet, but made for a very tired mum. I actually didn't realise how tired I was until Keely came in the room to wake me up.

It was sweet to hear her voice telling me that I had fallen asleep. She was giggling at me as I never sleep during the day. Sad thing is I only slept for 20 minutes! Before I was a bad mother falling asleep on my child I did get her paints organised and she painted me a whole story of pictures to cheer me up. I am not sure how she knew I was not completely me, but she just did. I do try to wear this mask of happiness somedays, but she could see straight through it. She painted 5 pictures and every single one was for me.Lucky me.

Have fun with the easy craft. Painting, drawing, playing with playdoh are all fun for little people.


  1. Ahhh you are only human. I hope Taj gets better quickly so you can get some great long sleeps in again! I have to say though, I am impressed that you can leave paints out and fall asleep and not have red/pink walls! :-) I have an aspiring Pro Hart in my family...and yes, he did actually DO it once! Eeek!
    Have a great day! xoxo

  2. Such happy and bright colours...beautiful paintings and hope little Taj is on the mend.

  3. Nothing wrong with a Nanna Nap, we all need them sometimes. I had one yesterday with my little guy while the girls watched a movie.

  4. Aww, love how she's filled the whole of the white space with her colours! Never mind the falling asleep - definitely doesn't make you a bad mum :)

  5. 20 minutes?! C'mon! You deserve 20 minutes! I have been napping for 2 hours at a time. Yikes!

    Big squeezies to the little dude from all of us. And as always, love Miss Keely's artworks. xx

  6. Such gorgeous photos - so bright and the colours just POP! Loving her painting series too.

    It's ok to have an occasional quick nap. Trust me, I'm a professinal (catnapper).
