happy mother's day!

I'd like to wish all moms, moms-to-be and nurturers of children a happy mother's day!

Here's a little peek at what the kids and I made this week for their moms.

We had completed these earlier in the week... that is until I watered the plant! That's when the hand prints started to wash off!! I had white washed just old plain terracotta pots with acrylic paint but the hand prints were put on with washable (water-based) paint. So as soon as I watered the flowers, the paint came off. <sigh>

We redid the hand prints in acrylic paint and then I sprayed them with a clear gloss to protect them even further.

I included this cute little poem that I've used for a few different hand print crafts over the years. It's one of my favourites. My apologies that I don't know who wrote it or where it comes from exactly.

What did you give your mother today?

  1. Dang about the hand prints. Hopefully the new paint works better. But they are absolutely adorable. And I love that poem.
