A Heart made from Markers

My lovely daughter has been obsessed with coloring with markers all summer. We have spent countless hours coloring together and I have spent many more secretly watching her color. She is so meticulous that it fascinates me.

We also shared a monumental moment when we boughht a 96-count box of crayola crayons a week and a half ago when her markers went dry. I did not expect the joy and fascination that resulted, when to me this was a simple mommy-daughter jaunt to CVS.

Today I was going to put away laundry and she yelled 'Do not come in here mommy, I am using my scissors'. uh-oh. 'What?' I said. 'No, I am making something for you so do not come in'. When she emerged, this was the result. I LOVE it. What really cracks me up is that she left any white space on the paper.

So cute! Hannah is doing the same kinds of self-assigned projects but all she ever does is buildings or lighthouses or cuts out furniture out of magazines and arranges room collages. She wants to be an architect when she grows up and she is very serious about it :)
