Do you ever have one of those days where you sit down, shake your head and can’t believe all of the blessings that have come your way? This past month has been one of those months for me. Ever since I returned from SNAP Conference last month I’ve been marvelling at all of the wonderful opportunities that have come my way! I’ve been busy, busy, busy trying to make the most of all of them while still keeping a healthy work/life balance. Do you all find that May and June are busy months for your kids at school? Last week I was invited to three Mother’s Day teas! I love every second of each of them, but between those, Pro-D days, helping in the classroom, working and teaching I’m definitely being kept on my toes!
One of the wonderful opportunities that has come my way is contributing to and being a brand ambassador for MomResource.Ca! Today my first contributor post came out on their site and I wanted to take this opportunity to share it with you all!
Do you remember doing crayon etchings when you were a kid? I haven’t thought about crayon etchings in years, but a project that my daughter brought home with her from third grade recently brought the idea back to me. In my post on MomResource.Ca I share some nostalgic thoughts from my own childhood, what project my daughter made that brought these feelings back to me and a tutorial for making crayon etchings with your kids.
It’s a great beginner project and I hope that you will all hope over to MomResource.Ca and check it out.
When I made my crayon etchings I kind of just let my mind wander and I doodled. This past weekend though I gave my mom the fish card for Mother’s Day! I hadn’t thought of it when I was making it, but I think it was subconsciously inspired by a special moment that my mom and I shared during our first Mother Daughter trip together. Looking at the photos of my project now, I love that it is a project that was impacted by 3 generation– My daughter, my mom and myself. I love that creativity can be inspired in so many different ways.
Another thing I’m excited to share is that MomResource.ca is throwing a twitter party to celebrate the month of mom, and I will be co-hosting it! We think that moms should be celebrated all month long (one day really isn’t enough), so next Thursday, May 25th, we’ll be celebrating moms on twitter using the hashtag #WeLoveMoms. The twitter party starts at 9:00pm EST/6:00pm PST and there are over $500 worth of prizes being given away! We would love for you to join us!
