Novalie loves to create. She loves to draw. She loves to write stories. There are about 20, if not more, chapter books lying around that she is writing. Each time we go to the store she is absolutely sure she needs a new notebook because she has a new idea for a story. So much creativity and imagination running through her mind at all times. She can look at any image and draw it. And yet she has the worst hand writing. It fascinates me. Her creative mind has me in awe everyday. I wish I had pictures of each drawing she makes because they are all so good. Our walls are covered in them. Our drawers are full of them. She is a girl who has to create and I love that about her. So much.
Novalie told me she wanted to make an archery target to practice her bow and arrow with. I said, “easy, just get some cardboard, fill the middle with foam and draw circles and dots for the targets.” Umm…no. That would not do. She had her own vision of a target and she went to work creating it. Isn’t it so lovely? The butterflies have different point values. It is too pretty to shoot arrows through. So creative.
Remember that awful game the Seahawks played in the Super Bowl? Still such a painful ending. Novalie insisted that Olive get in the Seahawk spirit with an outfit. She found an old shirt that didn’t fit her anymore. Altered it to fit Olive and made her a lovely bow to complete the outfit. She looked adorable even if her team turned out to be an embarrassment. So creative.
Novalie’s current favorite movie is Big Hero 6. Honey Lemon is her favorite character. She loves to go to the dollar store and buy these $1 foam boards and make big drawings. She drew this of Honey Lemon. So creative.
Another big foam board drawing. Such a good dolphin. I am super expressed by her.
Just a bunch of random drawings. She just thinks things up in her head and draws them. Sometimes she uses a picture as her guide or a 3-D object. She can look at any picture or object and just draw it. Have I said yet that she has an amazing talent? Because she does.
She drew a page of different hairy monsters, but this work-out girl monster just killed me. It is so GOOD!
She also writes inspiring things. Like this booklet she started on motivation for girls. She is the sweetest.
It is our dream now to have a big empty room for her to create in. Walls where she can paint/draw/color/write on. Desks and shelves with every art material possible. Wouldn’t that just be something?!
My creative girl. So talented. I love her.
