The Beginnings of the Little City

Full of beans, thoughts and creative energy (and as little time as ever!) from our recent trip to Norway. For starters, Liam and I finally started something that's been brewing in my mind for some time - to draw buildings that are meaningful to our lives onto wooden blocks. With the idea that these wooden blocks may become toys for imaginative play for Feets but also a memory and story of times and places for all of us. IMAG0298 I'd like to remind myself to be very flexible about this project, to give it the chance to grow. Perhaps with time Feets will draw on the blocks too. Perhaps friends and family will send us blocks with their own homes drawn on. Some will be big, others will be small. And though we start in black and white, perhaps we'll finish in colour. Anyway, it was fun to get started!
