New Member of MOPS!

It's a busy month of New memberships for me:) So far I've joined Picnik, Lollishops & MOPS.
This program is for Mothers of Preschoolers. Although I'm pretty sure they are not strict on that. I saw some woman who think they qualified b/c their teenagers Act like preschoolers. Hehe The above picture is the Front of my Mops binder. It's the most wonderful digital artwork printed on old ledger paper. I got this print from a friend but it wouldn't fit in my binder so I had to shrink it down a size. I'm going to put the real copy in a frame and put it in my Master Bath. anyways get these prints from her Etsy shop here
This is the art collage I threw together for the back of my Mops Binder. The kids first meeting in their Moppets class they painted on coffee filters so I thought that would be a cute background that fits into the Mops theme. I used my Crepe paper frills and some velour ribbon on top of that for the bottom of the page. The Wings on Valoria are the beautiful Pink Dresden foil wings that jenny sent me in that beautiful Silver Bella package. I've seen some beautiful wings sold here in Marilyn Healey's shop here. The Wings on Valencia are wings she's actually wearing:)
Oh I must tell you about the most beautiful hearts I've ever seen! The little red & black heart drawings and "MOM" is a beautiful little piece that my 4 year old Jaedin makes me. He writes his hearts and writes "Mom" and then cuts it out. (He just learned to use his "safety scissors" as he calls them) Then he brings it to me and says "I made hearts for you" Ohhh and then my actual heart melts Awwww
My second meeting with Mops was lots of Fun. I packed a bag with craft goodies of the Valentine variety and my glue gun(of course) and our craft this time was what we called a "Love Dare" box. The idea I believe is based off of the movie "Fireproof" which I rented last night and now I just have to find a straight jacket of some sort to make my husband watch it :)

I think this is going to be a wonderful gift to all of the special couples in my life for Valentines Day.
All they have to do is rent Fireproof for $1 and make some dinner and what do you know. An easy Valentine Day Date! Try it!
You can get the 40 Love Dare challenges Here...

Out in Blog World there are more sweet people than I probably be able to ever meet but I will sure try. Here are 2 blog friends who passed on Blog awards to me. Thank you!
This Fabulous Blog Award is from Maygreen Faires. Her collage comedy fairies are too funny not to see.
My year long buddy Sherry awarded me this cute award. Thanks so much guys for supporting my writing and living!
