Yeah...I totally knew it seemed too quiet...

*Update below*

Can you tell by her expression how pleased Lia was with herself and her "make-up"?? She rocked this look most of the afternoon...but thankfully, since it was washable (and non-toxic!) paint, it came off without too much trouble at bath time!!

Update: Laura wanted to know what Lia used to "fancy herself up"...so Laura...this is for you! (But Bingo sounds fun...let's go sometime!)

For the past two years, Lia has brought home work like this from school. I have dot art in every color and for every season (and I guess, the odd fish thrown in for good luck...it was the only one I could find this morning! :-)).

So when I saw these...I knew Lia would love them!

I use them on finger painting paper, so she can dot...AND use her fingers to "finger paint" with them. They really DO clean up easily and Lia loves painting with them. Before she painted herself, she did produce some great works of art...like this one!

Such a little beauty, whether she is green or any other color. It's always fun to see their creative colors shine through : )

I love the make up job! Isn't colored makeup (or at least eyeshadow) in?

very cute!

Jboo said...

She's one of those girls who sets the style, doesn't follow it, right! She looks adorable no matter what! You might want to put your lipstick out of reach though!

Laura said...

Are those bingo blotter marks??? I'm trying to figure out what she used. That would be a great contest.

Kellyann said...

Aren't girls and there antics fun??? Not bad for a first try!

Jboo said...

Wow -- those are very cool -- I've never seen those before. Will have to look for them for my little artist! Have a fun weekend!

Oh Miss Lia.....she is so creative!!

This is hysterical!!

Erin said...

She does look very happy with the results, and I must say, she is truly artistic! COuld have been worse... good thing those are washable. I think I will pick some up, as Libby has been wanting to paint.

Quiet is not good. They are always up to something. Lia is so funny. They use them at Katie's school too. We would get artwork everyday too with dotted colors. I never thought about getting her a set for home.

P.S. I am totally up for going to BINGO with you gals. Believe or not I have a bingo bag and all. Even a lucky toll thrown in.

That is so funny. I love her paintings. I think you need to invest in some frames.
