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…

Where to find Cute Modest dresses

Hello! Welcome!

If you are reading this post you are like so many other ladies that ask me the same question. Where do you get all these cute dresses??

Since I get that question a lot around here I thought I would write a blog post with all of the online places I frequent to find modest dresses.  Modest meaning long or appropriate length and sleeves.  I will occasionally purchase a dress with spaghetti straps and wear a cardi or white t-shirt underneath also. But who wants to do that all the time??

So pin it, share it, bookmark it and check them out....if you can't find anything message me and I'll see what I can do.

Seriously, I'm not joking about this.  I love to shop and if I get to shop for people it's even more fun...of course you will have to pay me.

These are all places for 0-plus size. So, there is something for everyone.
