Love Light Buttons + NON Share a Smile Challenge

Happy May!  As usual life has had me very busy allowing little time for crafting, but I'm so glad to be able to share the project I made  that's perfect for the Naughty or Nice May Challenge: Share a Smile.

I presented a very important lesson about the Love Light in the Montessori class I recently taught.  The lesson is about an invisible light we all have inside of us that shines so bright when we feel happy, loved, proud, and accomplished.  This is our love light and we can feel when it's shining so bright.  The kids loved the lesson and afterward I put my button making machine to work so everyone could make a button depicting what their own love light looks like. (Side note: my button machine was an awesome Christmas gift from my thoughtful husband! Thanks again, babe!)  I showed them the example I made (the first one shown) and they came up with their own perfect love lights. Aren't they great?! I love how colorful they are :) The kids were only three years old !

I hope this post has your love light shining and that you're able to join us in our NON Challenge this month! Head on over to the blog to post something sharing a smile and leave some comments along the way :)

Thanks for spending part of your day with me!

NON #37 - Feature a Creature.+ Bugaboo Giveaway

Hello and Happy March!  Where I live, the weather is getting warmer and flowers are starting to bloom!  We had a few unseasonably warm days then it got pretty cold again; hopefully that didn't stunt their growth.  The animals are more active and birds are singing. Spring is around the corner!
We have a sponsor this month!  Our friends at Bugaboo will be giving the winners of this challenge a $12 gift certificate for free digital images! There are so many great images in the store. Unfortunately our printer was giving us problems so I didn't get to use one for this particular challenge. My teammates did though, so head to the blog and check them out!

The theme at Naughty or Nice Challenges this month is "Mad as a March Hare", so in order to join in the fun, you must use a critter on your card somewhere, regardless of how tiny (see below) or big you want to go. 

I made this card for some friends who just bought a new house.  Super cute way to welcome them to 
this new chapter :)  Got a sweet little lady bug in there because they symbolize good luck.

Love is in the Air as Demonstrated by a Unicorn Farting Rainbows

Hello, hello!  I just realized I haven't posted in months.  Holy cow! It's hard to balance things as an adult sometimes.  

It's the month of February and Naughty or Nice Challenges has a wonderful challenge for you: Love is in the Air (with an optional color challenge).    I couldn't resist sharing this card. Technically I didn't make it, so I may be cheating, but it's too sweet and perfect for the challenge to not share. My son made it for his uncle who lives across the country because his uncle thinks unicorns are so great. It's so darn cute, creative and flat out hilarious that I just HAD to use it.  I know my kiddo is going to be thrilled when he sees that I put this on my blog for the world to see :)

A unicorn farting rainbows! Now that's flat out funny!  I hope you all got a chuckle out of this one. He'll be happy to hear any kind comments you have to make about it :)
