New Children’s Collection

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing with you some of my newest additions to my mixed media art Children’s Collection.  I have a couple of pieces that have been very popular for children’s gifts, birthday and especially confirmation gifts.  But, recently I decided to create some more pieces with some sayings that were requested and also close to my heart.
Braver, Stronger, Smarter mixed media print by Carmen Whitehead Designs.

This Braver, Stronger, Smarter piece is definitely my most popular for children.  I love this quote that is said by Christopher Robin to Winnie the Pooh.
I love you a bushel and a peck, is an old saying and not many people know what it means. But, it was a Doris Day song from the 50’s and many parents and grandparents sang this song to their kids.  I just think it’s a cute phrase.

For this child I prayed, is from 1 Samuel 1:27.  Hannah was giving thanks to God for the child she had prayed for and answered her prayer.  The child was Samuel, who would become a great prophet.  This is a wonderful phrase especially for a mother that has waited a long time for a child or is adopting a child.

Oh the place you will go!  I read this Dr. Seuss book to my children when they were small and as they grew up I would say this to them.  It’s an encouraging word to a child of how much their future holds for them.
I really enjoyed creating these pieces.  It made me reminisce about my children when they were little and how I hope they pass these words on to their children.
If you would like to see the entire collection, you can go to my shop here.
Thanks for visiting friends!

    Carmen, all are wonderful sayings for children. Kids need to hear these things to help build their self esteem. I love, love the first one! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
