Ready for the Clue?


Hey Everyone!

Thanks again for your eager participation on the last “Mommy & Me” contest! I hope you all had as much fun as I did. I am happy to announce that this is the second contest (woo!!) and everyone is invited to leave a comment with their guess! As I mentioned last time your vote is only valid if it’s on this page.

It’s been a while since I’ve had some inspiration about what I would do next, but it finally came and I’m so excited for the big reveal!!

First things first:

⇒Art Tip for Today⇐

Get all your supplies. What I mean is if you’re working with paint get good quality paint, good brushes, a color palette and even a color wheel  if you’re like me and don’t have that much experience with color-mixing. And the right paper for what you’re doing. (like getting a heavier paper for watercolor.)

The other important item to have ready is a varnish spray that you can put on your finished pieces to prevent yellowing or fading. I recently bought some that I’m hoping to use soon. There are gobs of paraphernalia you can buy for whatever medium you’re working with, but these are some basics that I would recommend.


Now for the fun part! Are you ready??

I am by no means a Poet, but here is the next clue:

When the weather is hot I go out for a swim

In ocean, river or lake

Sometimes traveling near or far

My offspring with me, I take

basking in glorious sunshine of noon

To take in the warmth it provides

Always to stay there, I wish it were so

It’s at end of day that it hides

Now, traveling back to my home where I dwell

My little ones snooze on the way

We all eat a snack and then curl up to sleep

Welcoming dreams of our day

– Sandra G. Anderson


The winner will be announced Wednesday, so stay tuned! 😉
