Mother's Day and Some Craftiness!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all of you mama's out there! Hope you had an amazing day and we're blessed by your family or friends today! If you are in Waco...I know you were blessed today because you got to hear precious Margie Atwood share this morning and it was AMAZING...for everyone else...get the podcast in a couple of days...definitely worth it!

I'm so blessed to be the mom of these three boys!! What an honor to have been chosen for these future leaders and world changers. 

It's a weighty thing and it's the greatest adventure I've ever been called to. I recently read something at this amazing blog (Lark and Bloom) about what we do as moms and it said...
"Wanna go to the mission field? There's one right at your feet!" 

I LOVE THIS!! Somewhat because I have days where I wish I was serving Jesus in some far away land or in full-time ministry, but really my work as a mother in the mission field of my children's hearts is just as important, challenging, fruitful and kingdom purposed! Thank you, Jesus! onto a little crafty project.

So, I rarely get to make anything girly since I'm the mom of three boys. Since a friend of mine's little girl was turning 2 I thought it was the perfect opportunity to make something homemade and pretty!!

Here's what I came up with...homemade costume jewelry!

A little bracelet and matching headband!

I found a tutorial for the bracelet at this blog. 2 Little Hooligans.

It was really easy to make and is something a small toddler could wear without you worrying about small beads, etc.

Here's a close up of the bracelet.

The headband was inspired by this blog. Every Nothing Wonderful

I LOVE that the band part is made from tights! So great and it makes for a really comfortable headband. I even made a couple for myself!

It really helps to be able to see it on so...

Look at my sweet Bear! Don't mind the messy shirt...he IS a BOY after all!

Sorry, babe...I just had to! HA!

So, there you go! So easy to make for the little girls in your life! 

Hope you had a wonderful Sunday and Mother's Day!!
