Ayana's Art

Was such a wonderful weekend as I went to my hometown San Antonio. Got to see my brother and his Girlfriend as she (Amanda) just graduated from college!! WOOHOO!! Then I stopped by to see my old neighbors and wonderful friends, the Pictums. Amazing as I can remember Sterling when he was 3 years old. This trip, he showed me his senior ring that he just got. He's graduating high school next year. How time flies!

Finally I had the most wonderful dinner with family! John and I picked up my cousin Sylvia and her boyfriend Will, then we met my cousin Cherry, Chamichael and their daughter Ayana and my cousin Desi at a great restaraunt for an early celebration for Cherry's Bday. Such a delight. When I got there little Ayana presented me and John with these wonderful cards that she made:

Ayana,

Your cards are very pretty. I think you are going to be an artist like your Aunt Holley! Your cards make people smile and that is a very special gift. Keep on making them and tell Aunt Holley to show us a few every now and then, ok?

Hugs,

Hi Ayana,

Your cards are beautiful, you should be very proud. My favourite would have to be the Key of Love card. If you don't mind I will have to use that idea. Hope to see more of your work soon. Sharyn from Brisbane, Australia

Hi Holley, i'm back. I just remember something. Check my other blog "Nataliya's Crafts", i give this blog to my 6 Years old Son for his craft. I have there two challenge blogs for kids. Not many people know, but kids can play and win too. That will be awesome if Ayana can enter her creations for the chance to win some prises.
Hugs Nataliya.
