Hey guys! Where are my manners? I’m just now realizing that I’ve never properly introduced myself. I’m Jackie, the (formerly face-less) artist behind these posts. πŸ€— I’m also a wife and a stay at home mom to (newly) two-year-old boy/girl twins and a 9-month-old son.  Fun fact: We may be the tallest family you’ll ever know - I’m 6’2”, my husband is 7’, and our kids are taller than the average 4-year-old πŸ˜‚  Things are quite... um... exciting(?) during the day with three VERY OPINIONATED, clumsy-but-fearless little ones, but I try to get some creative time in every day - even if it’s 5 minutes of sketchbook time or making a crayon drawing with the kids. (
Day 16  Helper  I have the absolute most supportive loved ones. I have friends and a husband who remind me not to overthink and take baby steps, who help when I can’t figure out how to use technology, who volunteer to package or mail prints when my hands are full, and who always encourage me to keep making my art.  The other two major helpers are small, but mighty. They help me remember the importance of play and to constantly be in awe of the little wonders of every day life. They’re also my biggest mess makers πŸ˜‰
I’m so excited to see how my world map canvas looks like in this room. So stylish and cute. Thank you @the_snazzy_mom for sharing image of your son’s room! #worldmap #nurserydecor #playroomdecor
Any surprises lurking in your ancestry? Last year, I discovered I had some “hidden” Irish ancestry (19%). This was after decades of declaring: “No way!” whenever someone asked me why I didn’t sport a green t-shirt. Today I’m still not wearing green but trying figure out what it means to me and how I am connected.

Who else is excited for spring time and sunshine? 🌞
Finished Birthday invites for a knight themed party (making Sir Charlie Stinky Socks costume for Harry’s present). I used the brother scan n cut and they worked great but not without frustration but he loved them and I now know new tips for next time.
Nurture the innocence and wide eyed wonder of youth. Do not let them grow up too quickly...πŸ’• (Small Charcoal study on paper)
Helper is the theme of the day for #marchmeetthemaker and clearly I’m using the term loosely but Bow is the little character who keeps me company in the studio. She can’t resist brown paper, boxes and bags 🐾

“Moooommm. I’ve got work to do. I am working here.” πŸ™‰Some days I am in the middle of what they are doing (aka they follow me room to room) and others, they forget I am here - it is these times that I am hiding in the kitchen trying to eat something before someone asks for a bite. 🌯#momlife πŸ‘‰πŸΌBut these. little. moments. These HUGE moments remind me how important it is for preschoolers to be set free and “do their work”. 🌟I believe that preschoolers need tools in order to work. They need access to get the tools themselves and independently get started on the “work” they have created. 🌟Here, I linked to our Alphabet Activity Cards to show a couple ways you can get your preschooler started. πŸ€“Think of them like putting ideas into their head. You will slowly see these activities present themselves into their everyday “work” (play) and all of the tools are items you may already own.✌🏻
Who wants one of these super cool bunny necklaces? πŸ™‹‍♀️ We are big fans of painting and pastels on cardboard at this house, and with 2 kids in diapers there’s no shortage of boxes around here to cut up.  We changed up our routine and made bunnies for this week’s cardboard theme over at @get.creative.with 🐰🐰. I know some lucky aunts and cousins who will be getting bunny necklaces in their Easter baskets this year πŸ˜‰. If you need me I’ll be cleaning up confetti and sequins for the rest of the day 🀦🏼‍♀️. . . . #bunny #bunnyart #easterbunny #getcreativewith  #kidscreate #kidscrafts #kidscrafts101 #creativekids #craftsforkids #craftymama #creativemamas #sahm #toddleractivity #toddlerpainting #toddlerartinvitations #crafts #crafty #craftymom #easteractivity #easter #myminimadeit #smockson #somessy
Trying to remind myself of this as we have a few days left of Spring Break... πŸ€ͺπŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ What are your go-to activities to keep your kids busy? I try to do an outing every day and then get them doing some exploring, art and play that doesn’t involve me every second (which often involves plenty of mess πŸ˜‰). .  Ps- I’m soooo excited about how many of you have signed up for our FREE Lettering Mini-class- you can find the link in my profile πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» .  Quote from @brenebrown ❀️

A color sorting, sensory activity! We are making rainbow fruit popsicles today! My son is 1.5 years old and he knows his numbers and colors so I thought this would be a fun listening to directions exercise. I numbered the popsicle molds and I will tell him what color to put in what number. After the molds are filled with the layered fruit I will fill them with the lemonade (which I cut with a little coconut pineapple water so they aren’t too sweet.) Then pop them in the freezer! We made popsicles together once before and he was so proud of himself! I have been eager to do it again with him! πŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸŒˆβ„οΈπŸ“πŸŠπŸπŸ’šπŸ’™ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - #mamalife #creativemamas #boymom #boymomlife #boymama #boymamaπŸ’™ #toddlerlife #thattoddlerlife #toddleractivity #toddleractivities #sensoryplay #sensoryactivity #colorsorting #rainbow #rainbowactivity #sensoryfun #toddlercooking #thisisoneandahalf #mamarazzi #letthembelittle #toddlergame #icepop #popsicle #homemadepopsicles #rainbowfruitpopsicles #toddlerfun #funlearning #learningisfun #stpatricksdayactivities #toddlerstpatricksdayfun
