Hi everyone! It’s Judith from JOELIX.com. While Elodie is enjoying her first weeks as a LOVEly maman for bébé LOVE, I’m honored to guestblog here today.
When Elodie asked me to write a little something childhood related for her blog, I knew I wanted to show some flowers. Because ever since I met Elodie, flowers somehow reappeared into my life. It may sound a little strong, but with 3 flower (and plant-) eating cats around and a greenhouse where I enjoy growing succulents and palm trees, flowers were not on top of my list. Elodie and Inga’s #2flowergirls series and The Lonely Bouquet inspired me to introduce flowers in my life again and I haven’t looked back since.
At the age of 5, flowers were clearly part of my life: I found one of my drawings from the 80s which included all these colorful flowers. Drawing and painting were my favorite activities back then. When flipping through my photo albums I realize that I had a very low-tech childhood. No iPad or phone to play games, but lots of crafting & drawing, Lego and playing with my sister. And I still like doing all of that!
If I were a little girl today, I’m sure I would have loved Marion Deuchart’s Let’s make some Great Art or any of the Appracadabra apps, which come in up to 16(!) languages (also in French & German, Elodie 😉 ). But color pencils and a piece of paper, and maybe even flowers, would never be far either.
I hope you enjoyed my little trip down memorylane. Thanks Elodie for having me and gros bisous for bébé LOVE! I hope that in a few years from now, she’ll surprise you with some nice flower drawings!
