Hello, my amazing Tribelet of Mini-Women. Today’s a pretty huge day for us: the day we showcase your creative work from BOTH April AND May. You rock, Mini-Makers.
And what better way to start than with ASHER’S awesome drawing? We’ve seen a lot of Asher’s work here on Tween You and Me — some of it over and over because it works so well. In this latest drawing I think you’ll see Asher experimenting more and growing as an artist.
What do you see different in the above drawing than in her past work?
KAELYN wrote a poem for us this time …
I have a rock who is mighty and strong
My rock will stay with me my whole life long
My rock will serve and protect as a mighty shield
My rock will protect me on the chaotic battle field
My rock I will cherish with all my heart
My rock will not let me fall apart
My rock will protect me from the mighty waves
My rock will hide me from the enemy’s gaze
My rock is there when I can’t find my way
My rock will always be my stay
I love Kaelyn’s metaphor of the rock, which of course stands for _____
SAVANNAH’S photograph gives us another metaphor:
Why is the way Savannah placed the steeple so perfect?
We have a lot of tributes to God this time. Here’s one from GRACE:
I Love God
I love God because his love shines through.
When I worship him in song and in prayer too!
His love is redeeming, graceful and kind.
And it’s always reassuring to have him by my side!
One thing I love about EVE are her delightful wildlife photos. Look at that BABY!
What do you want to do when you look at Eve’s photograph?
I don’t know about you but I’ve been waiting for the next installment of THIRZAH’S story. And here it is!
I searched box after box with no luck. then in a dusty corner (I knew it was dusty because I couldn’t stop sneezing), I came across an old trunk, it was made out of sturdy oak and had two bands of brass supporting the hinges. I tried to open it but it was locked, I searched the attic from top to bottom trying to find the key but couldn’t find it anywhere! I realized I had a bobby-pin in my hair, so I thought I’d pick the lock. I took out my bobby-pin to pick the lock, and there was the key, in the lock.
Needless to say, I spent about 30 seconds silently yelling at myself for not noticing the big golden key right-smack-in-the-middle of the keyhole. Once I finished scolding myself, I turned the key in the lock and opened the trunk.
Mystery and humor make a great combination. Were you expecting that solution to the problem?
I HAD to showcase OLIVIA’S kitty photos as a series.
What do you think Gray Kitty is saying in each of the pictures?
KAELYN gave us this acrostic, which shows you can say a lot in a few words:
Son of God
And the first letter of each line spells ___________________
JENNA is doing some really imaginative things with her photos.
And some daring things too. Which of the two is your favorite?
VERONICA’S drawing is so good I plan to use it in one of our Friendship posts.
What title would you give Veronica’s sketch?
HALLE has given us the perfect way to close out our Mini-Makers Showcase. Why do you think I say that?
I’m so proud of all of you. Your work is so REAL, and I love putting it out here for you all to see. Now, help us out, will you?
* I’ve tried to include everything you sent in for April and May, but with the surgery I may have missed something. Please email me by clicking here if I’ve left out something you submitted. I’ll fix that!
* Be sure to comment on the items in red — and anything else you want to say about this great stuff. All positive — we’re not here to critique, right? This is a celebration of art.
* If you want to share your drawings, photos, paintings, stories (200 words max), or poems for the June Mini-Makers Showcase, please get them to me (Nancy) by Friday, June 9. For more information, just click here: Calling All Mini-Writers!
Be sure to come back on Wednesday, May 24 for the first post in our next friendship series: When Friendship Goes Wrong. Hannah and I are here for you!
