My Father is the craftsman behind the wooden products that are stoked at Little & Loved and my Mother is in the midst of writing a children's book.
Although I haven't yet converted Mort into using Pinterest, I often email her with ideas that I've pinned for the boys. While I like to think I'm a creative type right now I have more ideas than I actually have time for.
This year for Max's fourth birthday she made a dozen painted stones that she gathered on a recent trip to Christchurch.
The images each have special meaning to Max and our family. We'll use them for imaginative play and story telling.
Hours of fun…
Mort applied a patch of white undercoat to each stone before drawing the image in pencil, painted with an acrylic paint and finished with a single layer of matt polyurethane. Very simple.
