A little Mother’s Day fun!

Happy Mother’s Day! (a little-belated ūüėČ )

I’m a little late getting this posted, well, because I was getting ready for and enjoying Mother’s Day!

This is Me, my grandson Jase, and my beautiful Mommy! ¬†She is the sweetest person I know, and I inherited her whimsical spirit! ¬†That’s why I knew she would love these cute little flowery pins. ¬†I let her take first pick, then let the others choose the ones they liked. ¬†We all had a very nice day at my sister’s new house, and enjoyed our time and dinner together!

pinsI made these pins for my own Mom, sister,¬†sister-in-law, and daughters. ¬†At least, the ones that have children! ¬†I did, however, forget to make one for myself. ¬†But, oh well! ¬†You’ll have that!

They are made of polymer clay, plus a little bit of Pearlex mica powder and varnish!  I used a technique called polymer clay embroidery.  It was rather fun, actually!

Springtime Fun for Kids Roundup

 

I just love when Spring arrives!  Everything starts to turn green, the temperature gets warmer, and there is a freshness in the air!  And, like many of you, my fingers itch to get crafting for Easter and Spring decor.

Today, though, I’m going to put together some fun crafts and ideas for the kids! ¬†They will help get their little spirits in the Springtime mood, and make a fun afternoon for you to spend together! ¬†I look forward to doing some of these with my own grandkids!
