This one is a great project for the homeschoolers and also great fun for all kids and young-at-heart adults who love drawing cartoons or anything for that matter! Sketching is one of the things I love to do in my free time and now with one of the wonderful Apps Apple brought us, called “Paper by 53”, it has become so much easier and quicker to create a work of art on the fly.

The kids had already made Dad special match boxes at a play group we attend so I thought I’d make it big enough to fit different kinds of objects. This project was so much fun and the kids loved it too! Read the rest of this entry

Adult Coloring has taken the world by storm and of course as all good things there has to be a day for it… and there is! Today is National Coloring Book Day so I thought I’d show you some beautiful books that I got to review from faithful-to-nature.co.za. (Click here to like them on Facebook)
There are many benefits to adult coloring. Mostly we just do it because we love it, but it has proven to be very effective in combating anxiety and has even been used in hospitals as Read the rest of this entry
