My awesome big sister
I'm very fortunate to be part of a wonderful talented family, my big sisters can turn their hand to pretty much anything and make their passions their life, there is no better way to live if you ask me.
This is my sister Sharon -
She looks amazing! I think that out of my family, I am the most creative one, but the rest of my brothers and sisters are all academic so I'm classed as the black sheep of the family aha
I have always felt a step behind my family talent wise, my mother is an amazing artist and sewing wizard, my 3 older sisters are all gifted at their own things including drawing/painting, knitting, joinery, jewellery making, using found items and beach drift to make amazing things as we all grew up on an island.
I always found the stuff I made to be rather silly in comparison but it's through cut out and keep that I've found more confidence in my work and it inspires me to push myself further. Might always be the littlest sister but I'm definitely catching up to them
Wow! She's one cool sister!
Must be amazing to share your creativity with your family! I think you can all inspire the others, to try other stuff and to learn from each other.
I really think the stuff you make is amazing too! Not silly at all! Seeing your projects made me realise that I've clicked a lot of times on things you've made. So I think your family is as proud of you as you are of them.
Keep creating ;)
Thank you so much! I really love this site and the community spirit it inspires, CO&K is a special place
As I'm bragging about my family, this is a painting I commissioned from my mum after the death of my first pair of winged boots. It's similar to a pic she did when I was a child of her battered old DMs and I just adore it...
That picture is really good. I don't think you should feel a step behind in your family, you're so creative and you're always happy in the messages and comments that you write
oh my gosh! she can work with wood! (i know i'm being stupid, but...) thats freak'n awesome!
i want to work with wood but:
1.) my parents won't let me.
2.) we don't have the space to do so
3.) my sister has asthma
4.) i'm really messy and would make a big mess
I think that its amazing that she can do that
