one of the things i looked forward to most when it came to having kiddies was creating things with said kiddies AND them creating vibrant, sweet & quirky things for me that i could display with joy & pride.
when it came to a handmade mother's day pressie, i just couldn't wait for little L to do such at preschool when he's 3 or 4. i wanted it NOW. so, a crafty mommy friend and i dreamed up a "MAKE YOUR OWN MOTHER'S DAY PRESENT" event for our meetup.com group like four months ago and today it actually came to pass. about 20 mommies and kiddies came together to craft colorful canvases, totes, hand/feet impressions, clay pots and such. what a fabulous success. everyone shared ideas, supplies, babies... and we got it done. i'll cherish the two creations i made with L forever and ever. and i couldn't have done it so joyfully and stress-free-ly without our meet up group. LOVE LOVE LOVE.Our finished pieces... foot print butterflies and a button-embellished clay hand print
mommies & babies galore, crafting away
