It’s spring!

Small Bites of Fun From Emily~

Leaf Printing:

Gather some eye-catching leaves on your next trip outdoors, whether it’s to walk the dog or hike a mountain.  Leaf printing is a craft technique that transfers leaves’ natural color to fabric or paper.

Arrange the leaves over the fabric or paper in the desired pattern. Place a sheet of tracing paper over the leaves, then hammer the entire surface to release the natural dyes in the leaves.

Enjoy this technique on your greeting cards and fabric.  Also, don’t forget to press those pretty flowers that will start coming out soon!

Small Bites of Fun From Emily~

“Spring  is coming, spring is coming. Birdies built your nests!
Weave together straw and feather, doing each your best.
Spring is coming, spring is coming.
Flowers are coming too.
Snowdrops, lillies, daffodils,  now are coming through!” Edith Segal

christmas is 50 days away!

EMILY’S BITES OF FUN:

Just one word: The reality of living a creative life is that some days the well runs dry.  The good news is that sometimes it only takes a single word or phrase to jump-start the process again.

You can also play with words, change the spelling to something fun like girlfriends to gyrlfriends and other play on words. 

During this season there are a lot of great words to play with and use for inspiration: Joy, Reflect, Create, Just Breathe, Believe, Let Your Light Shine, Beauty, Peace, Thanks, Grateful,  and many more.  Take time to write what you see, what you are thinking about, look through a dictionary and use those words that come to mind that may bring a spark of magic into someone else’s life today.  Then, make a card, a wall hanging, a magnet, or something else to reflect that/those words.

Motherhood is hard so we need help

EMILY’S BITES OF FUN:

 An interview with Quina Aragon from the blog/podcast from Risen Motherhood:

Whether you’re the crafty mom who can beautify anything, the mom who is always coming up with fun new adventures, or the mom who feels caught in the doldrums of daily life  God’s word teaches that we’re all creative. We’re all image bearers of the Creator. In this episode, Emily and Laura interview Quina Aragon—a wife, mom, and artist—on creativity and the gospel. As God’s ambassadors, we’re called to cultivate the earth in order to proclaim his name. Whether we make a delicious meal, comb a child’s hair, or help paint watercolor masterpieces, our creativity fills our homes and communities with the knowledge of the glory of God.

EMILY’S BITES OF FUN:

The Language of flowers: Blue flowers, for example, have many different meanings.                         In its dark, regal tones, blue can express trustworthiness, confidence, intelligence and unity, which is why it’s frequently the color of police uniforms, the blue “power suit” is an icon of the business world and why winners of competitions receive blue ribbons.  And yet, in its softer hues, blue can uplift the spirit of a sunny sky or soothing  ocean – perhaps explaining why people find themselves choosing blue flowers when they want to send a message of calming beauty, tranquility, and peace. Like the “forget-me-not!

Think about studying flowers, examining the intricate they have, take photographs of blossoms, and stop to smell the roses (literally), and add a beautiful arrangement or framed picture to your creative work space.
