I literally cannot draw. Like I can scribble but when my DNA was being formed they forgot to add the little splash of creativity or art ability. That is the COMPLETE opposite of the gorgeous Tracey Mackie Artist. She is clever and smart and talented. She takes inspiration from the everyday and transforms it into masterpieces.

There is no secret I love local, but I especially love local when it is better than anyone else. Tracey Mackie Artist is beyond better, she is simply the best. westir

So many of my friends want a ‘gossip girls’ or ‘sugar lips’ to take pride of place in their home and for bloody good reason. Tracey Mackie Artist  offers fresh, contemporary creations that scream love and entertainment.

{Raising Little People} 10 Questions to ask your kids about their art

Maybe one day, Confucius say: Hell hath no fury like a toddler who catches you disposing of their artwork.

The little people with their mighty egos often believe that each and everyone of their artworks is capable of competing with the Mona Lisa or The Birth Of Venus however when you find yourself submerged with the 76th-hundred drawing of a stick for the day it is hard to remember that each artwork often has it’s own story and that there is often a reason behind their ‘creative genius’.

We found this fabulous article that suggests 10 Questions To Ask Your Child About Their Art. It is definitely worth a read.

10 questions

One day the little birdies will no longer create simply for the fun of it, nor will they honestly believe that each one is the finest one ever created, so take the time, ask the questions and explore the magic of your little one’s mind.

{The Nest Loves} True love isn’t just poems and roses

True love isn’t just voluptuous bunches of red roses and love poem serenades. More often it is dishes and comfort and kindness.

Korean artist “Puuung” has captured the love that people actually relate to. She is remarkably clever with her illustrations and we LOVE the honesty of them.
