here really is nothing I like better than a homemade Mother’s Day card, but as my boys are getting older they are less likely to get out the glue and just make me a card, so I have teamed up with the talented LeslieAnn to bring you two delightful free printable Mother’s Day cards to colour.
I never really appreciated my Mum or understood the significance of Mother’s Day until I was a mother myself. It isn’t about spending lots of money, in fact, I would rather nothing be spent. It is about being appreciated. Which is why I adore these free Mother’s Day printables.
These DIY daffodil clay pots were so fun to make and even better they double up as candle holders. Mini suggested making these as he loved making our heart shaped ring dishes. We love using clay, it is such a tactile material and perfect for all ages.
This simple cotton pad and q-tip Calla lily craft is a great kids craft is brought to you by Flowers for Everyone. I am a big fan of flowers and love to have them in my house and this week the boys bought me a bunch of Calla lilies for the office, which inspired these stunning everlasting flower craft. Most people will have everything they need to make these in their home already.
These photo jar luminaries are remarkably simple to make and perfect for upcycling empty jars and even for jazzing up candles. I am passionate about ensuring that we eat together as a family and I love making our dinner table a wonderful place for my family to connect and these photo jar luminaries are a real talking point.
Ten years ago I became a mother. ten days after Mother’s Day that year. I remember getting a card from the bump (thanks to MadDad). Ten year’s ago my life changed in ways I could never imagine and each year I love Mother’s Day. This year I have teamed up with Paperchase to bring you some ideas to share with your husband and the kids. I am delighted to be working with them as most people know I am fueled by pretty stationery and tea!
Have you ever tried to make paper beads? This was our first attempt at them and I am already sure it will not be our last. We have had some great fun making paper beads from leftover wrapping paper this week. It is a super fun activity that is perfect for working on fine motor skills with kids.
Today I want to share with you how to make a mother and child heart necklace with polymer clay. This is inspired by one of my favorite preschool books, No Matter What by Debi Gliori (UK Link/US Link).
