Balancing work and family can be a challenge. Amidst the chaos, there are moments when I feel truly grateful to provide my four kids with a creative environment. Every year my son Aidan makes valentines for his classmates. This year he incorporated some Frankie & Coco techniques into his creations.We hand paint designs onto ceramics and I have been carving my own stamps to add detail to some of our sewn products. Aidan grabbed the X-Acto knife and we went to town on an eraser, creating triangles on one end and chevrons on the other. He used a glass to trace circles, stamped his designs, stamped HAPPY (which I love) across the top and cut them out. The finishing touch was a Twix, of course.
