Diana, I think your tags are great fun. How exciting it must be to get something with a tag like one of those. I also love that you are mentoring your niece in arts and crafts. I am doing the same with neighborhood preteens and we are having a load of fun creating. Cole's painting doesn't look rushed at all. In fact, I think with a tiny bit of cropping it would be such a bright painting for his wall. I love the colors in it. Reminds me of pool water!

I'm sure your tags are a hit!! They're pretty special!!
Kids are the greatest artists. They enjoy it so much and they don't get all hung up on things like we do. They are so free!!
