To minimize Ate's use of her tablet and at the same time, to awaken Ate's innate creativity (and I hope she has some, unlike me, haha!), I've bought a few Art materials for her like watercolor, fingerpaint and my most recent purchase, clay! Among all the things I've mentioned, my favorite is clay! It kinda serves as a stress reliever for me too, haha!
My first attempt. . . .
Then she asked me to make her baby brother . . . and I wanted to tell her that making one requires more than molding and shaping a clay! Heehee. . . .Anyway, for her request, I tried my best but I came up with a gingerbreadman (in a jumper!) instead of a baby.
I love flowers so I made one too . . .
Next in line. . .Apple which I thought was another easy subject . . .
Then I challenged myself . . .why not make a fruit basket?!
I posted this fruit basket in my FB wall and one of my good friends liked it especially the "Cashew". The problem is, there was no "cashew" in the basket! Haha! I told her that the yellow one was a Mango. Guess what, she was actually referring to the RED fruit, the Apple! OMG, we weren't even talking about the same thing! Haha! I know, I know I need more practice. And then another friend of mine thought it was a cashew too!
To prove a point, I thought of looking for some pictures of a cashew (as a fruit and not the ones you eat from the can, heehee).

Okay girls (D and C), YOU have a point, haha! As what my friend D said, my apple looks very, VERY good, that it can pass off as a really good-looking cashew!
Now you know who is enjoying playing with the clay a lot more than Ate. =)
Wishing everyone a happy and colorful day ahead!
