If you have been reading my blog for a while, you already know how much I love maps.
Yesterday I found an old map of Botswana in a second hand store and brought it home.
The plan was to glue some wooden sticks at the top and the bottom (that worked fine), and to write something on the map
with acrylic paint (this didn't work quite so well...).
I wanted to write 'la famiglia semper', which is Italian for 'family always'. Not sure why I thought that this fits with Botswana,
but I did.
Just when I started writing, the phone rang, Eva called for help with her homework, and I got side-tracked, and miss-spelled
my little Italian saying...
This didn't really please me.
So I took some red paint and crossed the family out (no, I do not have anger issues, this was a considered artistic decision :-) )
And then I left the thing lying where it was and did the photo canvas instead.
When I looked at it again, after some time (and the irritation) had passed, I actually quite liked it.
But I do like my family too, semper!
Lots of love to you,
