A few weeks ago I wrote about an idea I’d had when I was looking back at some of the fantastic drawings and cards our children have created over the years. We have a tradition that we make cards for each other on Birthdays, Christmas and Mother/Father’s Day and their creativity literally astounds me. I’ve kept them all along with some very special drawings and paintings and love spending time looking back at them.
So, the story behind my idea was this; 18 years ago our son, Corey, came home from Reception class with a drawing. He was about 4 years old at the time and we had been reading Roald Dahl stories to him every night before he went to sleep and The BFG was one of his favourites. Anyway, in he came with the most amazing picture which I have treasured ever since. The details are all there; the big ears, the cloak, the trumpet and the sack!
I keep the pictures in an old suitcase but it crossed my mind that if anything happened to them I would be heartbroken, so I decided to create a mosaic copy. The BFG was lovely to copy but the writing was a bit fiddly …
Now, I’m going to pull the suitcase out again and find a special picture by our daughter. Watch this space …..!
