Makings

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, the girls and I got to work last night on some cards for the ladies.Β  Back in December, Santa gave us a great all-natural card making kit by Glob and we had not yet used it. ( I believe the big man in red informed me he purchased this great gift from Nova Natural πŸ™‚

What we loved best about this card kit is that the card stock is seed paper.Β  So, after all of the mommas are done admiring their creations, they can plant the paper beneath a thin layer of soil and some lovely flowers will sprout…genius…a card and present all in one!

It never ceases to amaze me how beautiful the paintings of children turn out.Β  They have no set idea in mind, they just create, and the result is breathtaking.Β  I even tried to just “paint” my own creation last night, but found myself with a flower, leaf, etc. every time.Β  The mind of a child is one I think we all wish we could emulate.Β  That wild abandon that turns out to be true beauty so much of the time.Β  Love.
