I seem to enjoy creating what I consider ‘disposable’ art. Art made on things or with things that have a short life.
braiding the girls’ hair –> braids are taken out within a day or two
hand-drawing gift tags –> thrown away with the wrapping
drawing seasonal displays on our windows and mirrors –> washed off the next season or to clean
doodling on zip-top bags for the girls’ lunches –> get thrown away after use
Although it’s not HausMillerAdventure completely in nature, I think I’m going to try to take photos of what I create and post them on here. There’s something freeing in creating art that doesn’t have to last forever. And it is a good exercise to find the art in the daily tasks of life, in the few minutes I have to let my mind go.

the other giant wall mirror in our dining room decorated for Christmas
FUN FACT: as of February 4, 2017 it is still on the mirror. :)
Also, photographing mirrors is SUPER hard.
gift tags for Christmas presents
FUN FACT: no one else in the whole house cared that all the presents had matching gift tags.
