When Inspiration Hits: Arting With Ellie #1

Today, in the madness of trying to keep four young children occupied (I was watching my nephew), I found Ellie with my iPhone making videos. She would introduce herself and then have a chat. After awhile, she decided to replicate a little of what she sees when she and I watch videos by Effy Wild for Book of Days, which is a special time we share when Jasper and Kahlei are napping about once a week.

I offered to be her ‘cameraman’ or camerawoman, as she likes to be gender correct, and off she went. Creating, talking and being completely cute.

As Ellie understands more about blogging than I can even fathom myself, we discussed what we would do with the video and she indicated being interested in sharing here. So, for as long as she’s willing and interested, I am more than happy to start a new feature on Fridays called Arting With Ellie. Whether it will be a video or some photos of her work in her Book of Days or whatever she chooses to share is completely up to her.

I look forward to sharing with you and am excited that she is interested in, not only sharing the journey we are on together, but doing it here.

And, so, without further ado – Arting With Ellie #1;

What do you think? Is she a natural?
