So, inspired by some glittered frame ornaments at Pottery Barn, I came up with this little diddy-
a wall hanging, ornament, door hanging, or embellished frame.-whatever you want to call it.
The theme was ” a joyful noise” and when I introduced the craft I talked very briefly about how easy it is to lose sight of the joy to be found in our children’s noise making when we are tired, overworked and stressed.
While Lilly had helped in the kitchen, Brady was all about the crafting. She helped prep all the glitter and glue cups and then I handed over the camera to her so that I could help the girls hot glue their ribbon and jingle bells to the frames.
(This is a little tip I have learned the hard way in the past …)
During events like this it is hard to know if what we did helped in any way, if it left even the smallest tiny impression of love, encouragement or hope in the hearts of the girls. I hope so. Not so much for my sake but for theirs. After all motherhood is hard, no matter who you are.
When my oldest boys were little I attended MOPS and loved it!! It was a wonderful time just to breath and relax with other wonderful moms! What a wonderful way to give back 🙂

I think that's really sweet that you've helped with such a ministry. I'm the product of a teen pregnancy (My mama is only 49!)She was blessed to have a supportive family(and my dad,happy to say they are still together after all this time!) but a lot of these girls aren't so lucky.
I love the printable.Hoping I have some ink.
