Pictures of Maya's kite!
Remember when I talked about Maya's kite? Well, I finally got it back from the art school.


Maya and her kite Maya and her kite

Maya made this kite in her art class. It took her 3 classes to finish it. She put a lot of work into it.

Maya loves unicorns. Reminds me of when I was a little girl. :-) Notice the glitter paper she cut out for the mane? It's the little details...

I am so impressed with her perspecitve in this picture. The world below the unicorn is perfectly relative to the flying unicorn.



It is so pretty, I don't want her to fly it. I want to laminate it and hang it up somewhere instead. Maybe she'll let me do that if I tell her that it will get ruined by flying it. *evil grin* Maybe I can bribe her with a store-bought kite.

I know, I know...she is looking forward to a warm Spring day so she can fly it with us. *sigh*

Can laminated kites fly?

It is beautiful! What a work of art! And is that a fairy princess, too? How precious! I hope you get to save it forever. ;)

On another totally different note...you made me rent the wrong DVD from Netflix LOL. Somewhere, you mentioned how much you loved that movie Serenity. I had seen a couple of episodes of Firefly, but since you gave this movie the thumbs up, I added it and all 4 discs of the Firefly series to my Netflix queue. Then I moved them to the top of my list. And forgot about them.

So, when I returned a DVD recently, Netflix sent out the next DVD before I had a chance to go in and make sure it was the one I wanted. But you guessed it, they had already sent the first Firefly disc. I sure hope I like it! LOL (I've seen a few episodes and enjoyed them even though I couldn't put the story lines in any realy context, so I'm sure I'll like catching up on all of them.) ;)

I love Maya's art. I love Alexis's art, too. I'm thinking of letting her take this art workshop-type thingy on Fridays after school. OK I'm rambling, I need to go to bed. LOL TTYL!

So, you're watching Firefly first? That's the way you should do it actually. The series (Firefly) came first and then the movie (Serenity). You'll get more of the movie if you watch the series first. :-)

ooooooooooh! It's beautiful!

And no, laminated kites don't fly. But just think of all the great pictures you can take of her flying it -- I feel a scrapbooking moment coming on...

With a strong enough breeze anything will fly.

She looks really cute holding her kite and her hair looks a lot longer.

My God! Yes that is a very detailed kite for a kid.

She's decided that she wants long hair "down to the floor". So, whenever I take her to the salon, she only gets a bang trim. She missed having her hair up in pony tails. The last week, she's been asking me to do that again and getting out all her ponytail holders and clips. :-)

She's extremely meticulous. Everything has to be JUST right.

Definately a keeper...the kite and the princess.

That's really pretty!

It does seem a shame to fly it because it probably will get beat up...even if you laminate it, it might not survive too well...

I think bribery might be your best option!

I smell a perfectionist!

We once made kites out of garbage bags in an art class. I drew a big orange tiger on mine with sharpies, then we took them out to fly and the whole class had their kites tear to shreds in the wind...

It was really sad... all that work...

If it would fly as-is, it would probably fly laminated. But have a backup kite just incase it doesnt. =P

Yup! I'm trying to instill the notion that mistakes are ok.

wow! that's so lovely! The glittered mane is a great touch! And I love that little fairy in the corner!

That kite is beautiful! Be sure to give my compliments to the artist ^.^ Have you ever read The Paper Princess? It's a picture book I read the other day and mentioned in one of my LJ posts. Reading this post and seeing Maya's kite totally reminded me of this book. I think that you and the girls would really enjoy it!

Yes, we don't have that book, but Maya's heard it before at preschool. Darn, it would be great to have that book. I might ask Chris to pick it up while he's in the US. That's a great story.

I'll probably be reading all these comments to Maya later today. She'll love the compliments, after she gets over being embarrassed by them. :-)
