Preschool Art + {Lucy Darling}

*This is a sponsored post by Lucy Darling. All opinions are my own.

There we were. The week of Spring Break in the midwest and what did we have to show for it? Giant mounds of snow and children off their daily schedules. Every kid friendly place was completely overcrowded, as parents were trying to find things to do!

Luckily, I had a plan. I stopped by Hobby Lobby the week before, picking up a series of art supplies for the occasion. In the midst of all my glorious planning, I had one of those awesome mommy moments! Come on ladies, you the ones?! In this case, I forgotten to pick up washable paints. Oh well, (said no mother ever), acrylic it is!

Materials

  • Painters tape (I used electrical tape because it’s what we had on hand.)
  • Foam brushes
  • Washable paints (If you remember)
  • Canvases
  • Stickers (To add a design. They didn’t attach to the canvases well.)

We forged ahead! Creating both a beautiful mess and timeless masterpieces that will forever hold the beauty and vibrance of the day. But, these pieces weren’t created simply to past the time. They were created with a purpose in mind. In fact, I have been saving all her preschool masterpieces for this occasion!

Decorating

I have always felt the best home decor are pieces that both inspired and brightened our day. What could be more inspiring than our children’s art work!? With that in mind, I set out to find the perfect pieces to do just that.

Last Fall, as I was picking my daughter up from preschool, she handed me two beautiful pieces of her art work. It was these brightly painted pieces that I knew just had to be displayed. So, I was beyond thrilled when I found a print by Lucy Darling! Lucy Darling’s vibrant girly print was perfect to compliment my preschoolers creations.

When I learned I would have the opportunity to work with Lucy Darling to review one of their beautiful prints, I practically jumped at the chance. It was their that I found the inspiration needed to begin decorating the girls playroom.

When it came to selecting a print, I wanted something that was both vibrant and relevant to our family. After combing through dozens of options, I finally settled on their 11×14 Honeycomb Love (Girl) Art Print. Why, you ask? Well, this particular girly print is donned with the phrase, “You Are Loved.” This sweet and simple phrase is written in every children’s book by Nancy Tillman. Who is a favorite of mine! In addition, I tell my babies daily, “You are loved and I love you!”

Haily Meyers is a graphic design artist and the mastermind behind Lucy Darling. Her inspiration began when she was expecting her first child. She created baby sticker sets to express her happiness during this new chapter of her life! After sharing her designs with those closest to her and receiving an outstanding response, she decided to open an Etsy Shop. Haily build her business from the ground up and it has grown from there! She designs quality products in the USA, with both mothers and baby’s in mind! Her prints are made from recycled materials with eco-friendly, soy based inks.

I would love to hear how you store your preschoolers art work? How did you decide to decorate your home? Is it pure style? Or family driven?

**I purchased the frame for my print from Target. I purchased the frames for the art work from Hobby Lobby.
