Mother’s Day Class for Kids

IMG_2469

I taught a Kid’s Mother’s Day class this past weekend and had a full house. There were 15 mini albums to make & then fill with pictures and this group of kids did so amazing. I am always amazed at how easy going & creative a groups of kids are compared to teaching a group of adults. PicMonkey Collage

Each child left with a card and a completed mini book that was full of photos of their mom and families. I then wrapped each gift so that come Mother’s Day all these kids have to do is hand it over and watch their Momma’s hearts fill with gratitude. It was a treat to witness in person each child writing all sorts of  wonderful things about their Moms. “I love you because you make me macaroni.” “I love you because you make me laugh.” “It makes me happy when you hold my hand.”

Each child had stories to share with me and I could tell with each story just how much they loved their Mom’s. I left that class with a full heart.

Anna is always so excited to come to my kid’s classes and I am so grateful that I married a man that is happy to come help me, no questions asked. Cory was my assistant and he was amazing. I didn’t even sneak a peek at Anna’s work…. I am SO excited for Mother’s Day.

These kid’s classes are a ton of work for me but as I walk around in the hustle & bustle of their work I am reminded how much I love this and I forget how much work it took and start planning the next one.

Hello. It’s been awhile.

I am not consistent here, in this online space. I always think about how I can be better but then I find myself sharing over on Instagram instead. It seems to be the way to go but I also see all the value of keeping up with this platform. Truthfully I’ve been all out of sorts for the last few months. Maybe more. Probably more. I was given the heartfelt advice that perhaps I needed to “change things up” but I’m not too sure what that looks like.

What I do know is that I have so many things to share, work to show and tid bits to pass on but the million dollar question is “Where does the time go?”. If you discover the answer to that- please let me know. ♥

I wanted to start by sharing these cards that I  created for Treasured Memories as my April kit. I love them! I love the Kaiser papers– they’re gorgeous & that Tim Holtz butterfly die cut is just so pretty! And what’s even more awesome is that the kits are now available online at Treasured Memories’ new online store! I am just so proud of them and all the work they poured into getting that online store up and running.

You can also view my March Kit in the online store. These cards were created using the Kaiser papers from their Island Escape Collection.
