Art Therapy

I started my collection of art & craft supplies for Ashley today. She loves any art activity and I’m going to have to have things on hand to keep her amused during her 12 months of rehab.

One of my friends has told me that they have an art therapist at the Royal Melbourne Children’s Hospital where she will be having her surgery. I hope she is well enough to use this service as I think she will love it.

I found a great product today which is special paper with an adhesive backing. You can print your own photos on to it and make your own stickers. I’m going to do some as a surprise for her of all her family and friends so she can put them into her artworks.

This is a photo of Ashley and her twin Carys with a picture they painted recently.

About embracingtheimperfections

I am a mother of six children. My children's ages range from 20 down to 1, so we are dealing with a lot of different ages and stages, not to mention a lot of different personalities. One of my twins has cerebral palsy so that adds yet another dimension to our lives. Along my journey so far I have learnt that life is far from perfect and that sometimes it's the imperfections that round out the harsh edges and give it a quality that is precious and unique. My love of the imperfect extends into my home life too. I love all things vintage, hand crafted, home grown and home cooked. I love to be creative and I love learning. I am definitely not a minimalist! I aspire to be tidy and organized but I am realizing that with six children, three cats and a crazy black Labrador that is probably beyond my capabilities, so I embrace the beautiful chaos that ensues!
