Umbrella painting


Hello bloggers, hope you are all well out there... it has been a bit stressful for me as my younger one (two and a half) has been down with high fever. Got her tested for dengue - thank God it was negative but she has does have a viral infection. It is the third day today (it seems like 3 years!) and luckily she seems to be on the mend. That's enough of my sob story! Indonesia has shortage of good medical facilities so falling ill here is not much fun.

In the midst of all this, my mum and I went to attend an umbrella painting class. As you can see the yellow umbrella is hers (she seems to be a paisley specialist LOL!) I was strapped for ideas so I just picked up some leaves and stamped with them in different hues on that reddish umbrella...

Hope you like them.

It was theraputic to attend the class because it took my mind off my little one for a while and I needed that break.

I have not been upto making cards but will do that soon.

Love,

Monica

I cannot begin to imagine how difficult it would be for a mum to have a sick child and not have easy access to medical facilities as we have here in Australia . So with that in mind I am sending my love and wishes for continuing improvement in your little one's health .
Love it that you have your Mother so near .
Love the umbrella art too.

Hello Monica. What beautiful umbrellas and then to top it off you and your Mum did such a fantastic job painting them. I am amazed at how gorgeous they are. I sure wish I could do that. I can't paint at all. I took a class and could see that me and a brush are not friends! This is absolutely gorgeous! I'm glad your daughter is on the mend. It does worry us mothers when our little ones fall ill, doesn't it. Glad she's perking up! ;-)
