A ‘First Art’ Keepsake

Little Man has created his very first masterpiece! Yes, it was time to set him free with paints (when I say free, I mean strapped into his highchair, which I’d covered with a bin bag, and wrapped up in a huge coverall that fits his sister!), and he was excited!

It was lovely to see him experimenting and concentrating so much on what he was doing…


And here it is, his first painting..


Instead of letting it get lost in amongst all of Boo’s arty pieces that we have on the wall, or putting it in his memory box, I remembered that when he was born, he’d had a lovely gift of picture frames that until now, has lain in his drawer. So, I cut his painting up and created this rather sweet little keepsake…

Which is now on his bedroom wall, preserved forever!


I’m so happy that I remembered this frame set as I think it’s such a cute way to keep his picture, and it looks bright and pretty! A thrifty little piece of decor! What do you think?

    The Mother say – we HAD to comment on this. What fab painting and what an amazing idea to frame them like you have. Definitely one of our best #minicreations EVER. Thanks for linking 🙂

  2. What a great idea to frame his first ever piece of artwork! Definitely something I will keep in mind for Jumpy’s first masterpiece (she has done some finger painting, but as I had put sugar in the recipe, I thought it would not be wise to keep it!). Mel

    1. Thank you. I’m not that organised, when you consider that that frame’s been languishing in a drawer since he was born, and he’s now 18 months old!
