Sofie Sunday

Sofie Sunday: Paint – it – yourself ~ Sunny Sunflower

Wow! It’s going to be the end of summer already! Before it ends, here is an easy painting to do! Time to take a look!


*Green, Black, Brown, and Yellow paint

*Oslo/Watercolor paper


*Yellow marker or crayon

Paint a big brown circle in the middle of the paper.

Paint yellow petals around the brown circle. You can use a yellow marker or crayon to draw petals then paint it yellow inside.

Draw a green stem with leaves. Add some grass to decorate the painting.

When the painting is dry, paint some black lines on the leaves.

Voila! Looks nice, right? Special thanks to my brother, #Dinoshawn, for painting with me. See you next week!

Ramblings and Musings

Out With Mom

Just want to share with you, one of the gifts I received from my daughter last Valentine’s Day. Aside from the fact that I was really impressed on how her art skills have improved, I was deeply moved on its message. It made me feel how much she gives value on those times that we go out together alone, our sort of ‘date’ even if we were actually out to do errands such as to buy groceries.

So let’s savor each moment we spend with our kids. It may sometimes be mundane things we do each day but in the eyes and hearts of our children it means so much for them – something that they will always treasure.

  • The title, “Out with Mom” is the actual title of the painting my daughter gave me.
