Light Shines Bright

New Valentines!

Let your littles shine their light bright and share it with others with these fun, school-friendly valentines!

I used the square cards on Zazzle to design these valentines. They come in packs of 100, so it’s perfect if you have multiple kiddos to supply valentines for… or you could always go halfsies with a friend!

Valentine, Your Light Shines Bright!

What kid doesn’t love punching holes in paper?! Yours will be excited to help put their own valentines together – they get to write their name on the cards, punch the holes, and slide in the glow sticks!

I found a large tube of LumiStick glowing bracelets (many colors to choose from!) from Amazon – you can find them here.

The back side of the cards are solid black. You can use this space to write on with a gel pen or decorate with some fun washi tape.

Hope you can your kiddos enjoy sharing your light with others!

Let your Light Shine Bright

“This little light of mine…” – and now you’re singing!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. This year we tried to really focus on the reason for the season and celebrate the birth of Jesus, our Savior. Truly the best gift ever, right?

For our friends we made these solar light jars to help remind everyone to always let their light shine bright, even in the darkest times.

They were super easy to make since the solar lids already have the lights attached to them. Logan (5) really enjoyed putting the lights in the jars and screwing the tops on, and of course testing out the lights!

I used a paper punch and a hole punch to make the tags, some cute twine to tie them on and voila! Instant night light or light for the backyard.

Found the perfect sized jars at the grocery (best deal!), and the lids come in sets of 6 on Amazon* here: http://amzn.to/2DtnoOA

Go forth and make your own – such a great gift idea… and don’t forget to let YOUR light shine bright in 2018.

Blessings and Happy New Year!

By the Numbers

I happened across this amazing DIY Advent Calendar on Live Laugh Rowe and decided about a month ago that I would try to make one.

It’s brilliant — a hanging shoe rack has exactly 24 spots to fill with some decent sized goodies!

So of course I procrastinated and waited until today, November 30th, to make it.

While it’s not quite as beautiful as Kelly’s, the kids will go nuts over it, and that’s all that really matters, right?

Maybe next year I can start a little earlier… 😀

Blessings,
