a little Mother's Day art

Happy Mother's Day weekend!!

I told my kids Mother's Day is the one day a year we are appreciated. But, seriously sometimes it can feel like that.

I wanted to create something graphically for mothers this weekend.


When I think of motherhood I think of babies naturally. That moment when you meet your tiny baby and the only thing there is to do is love and kiss on them (and feed them and change them ect) This stage goes by all too quickly. 



 
 
This next piece I asked my husband to sketch me a mom and her daughter, I wanted just their backs and originally I had thought of like a beach scene, with long flowing dresses, but once I saw his sketch I thought it just looked like a mom and her daughter at the Kentucky derby.  It turned out kind of perfect because my mother loves horses and the derby.  My parents always love going and so I knew I wanted to incorporate a photograph. I even like it in b&w. 

To all you mothers out there, happy Mother's Day!

Last Day Of School! Keep In Touch Card Free Printable

Just because it's the last day of school doesn't mean your kids and their friends can't play together!

*Personal information is blacked out.
I wanted to make cards, something my son could hand out to his new friends at school. We just moved here last year and he was really sad about saying goodbye for the summer. This way if they want to play they can give him a call.  Luckily, I found this cute saying online fromShe's kinda crafty who had the same idea. I made the card and thought I'd share it with you!   
The card is a rectangle on the printout and I used an edge cut out to get the round edges.  I love those little things, they make cards so cute.  The font I used is Janda Silly Monkey

Honoring Mother's for Primary Singing time

Happy Mother's Day Week!

I am so excited for our primary children to sing their mother's day medley found here. It is really beautiful!

Hopefully the older kids will sing so loud and the younger kids will remember some of the words. (Fingers crossed)

So, for mother's day sharing time in primary I decided we will get to know our children's mothers a little better. I have asked the mom's to provide me with a fun fact, a unique talent, or anything interesting about them (preferably one their child doesn't know so we can all be stumped) and their favorite primary song. I will put the mom's names on the board.

I made these Nesting dolls with my cricut. You can find the cricut simply charmed cartridge here. It has lots of great holiday cuts.



I will print out the fun fact and their favorite primary song and tape it to the back of these dolls and I will hide them around the room. I will have the children find them one by one and we will try and figure out which mom…

Primary Singing Time : Quick Song Ideas

I made a few stuffed toys for my primary kids to pull out songs for days when we need a wiggle song, days where we need a reverent song, and later on in the year for our primary program.


When I was thinking of what to do, I mostly had in my mind, "What items do I have on hand?" So, that's why these are random.  A Wiggle Worm Minecraft looking cube, A reverent Robot, and a Frog.
 I made this with felt brown squares and a green anti fleece fabric, I also had this fabric I cut out the flowers and sewed it to the top. Each of these stuffies has stuffing inside as well as a pocket to hold the wiggle worm songs.
A velcro opening that easily opens and closes so the kids can pick a song.
This would also be fun for a hot potato game while singing.
I found these worms on my circuit cartridge. It's called the Lovely Floral Cartridge  It saved me a lot of time from having to create my own on the computer. I just cut them out with my scrapbook paper and put the song on the back. …
