What A Wonderful Year

Posted on Updated on

Happy New Year 2015As this year comes to an end I look back at 2014 and I don’t focus on the time I have spent creating the crafts on my site.

Instead I fondly remember every word of encouragement, every comment as a blessing, every exhortation from my fellow bloggers and every email from my wonderful readers.

I couldn’t and wouldn’t have wanted to carry on this blog without you.

My hope as the new year approaches is that my blog can continue to serve you and be a blessing to your church and childrens ministry.

I can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store for my little blog.

With extreme gratitude,

Jesus Rolon

I would like to leave you with my top 5 favorite crafts from 2014.

A Year Of Blogging

Posted on Updated on

46673Today marks my blog’s first birthday; one full year of blogging.

When I started my blog I really had no idea what to expect. I didn’t know if anyone would actually visit my blog or if I would even be blogging a year later.

It has been a crazy ride; full of fun, but a lot of hard work.

Through my blog I have been blessed to connect with other children’s ministry leaders from around the world and learn from their experience.

I have been greatly encouraged throughout this year with many kind messages from my readers of how they have been blessed through the crafts on my site. I started this blog with the intention and hope of it serving as a tool to help and inspire you and your children’s ministries. I am glad that it is accomplishing its purpose.

As I begin this new year I will work harder to come up with crafts and coloring pages that you will love to share with all of your kids.

I would like to thank all of my readers for allowing me and my little blog the privilege of serving you and your ministries this past year.

In ending this quick thank you, I would like to leave you with a few of my favorite crafts from this past year.

As the year has come to an end I have been astonished by what God has been doing with my little blog.

I have been truly blessed to get to know some of the other children’s ministry leaders in this online world, whether it be on Facebook, by email or through their websites and have received great advice from all of you. There are too many of you to thank to list you individually.

Secondly, I would like to thank my readers for this great year. Your words of encouragement and appreciation have helped me keep this little blog chugging along.

I started this blog with the intention and hope of it serving as a tool to help and inspire you and your children’s ministries. I just hope that this blog is living up to that expectation.

As the year has come to a close, I thought it would be fun to share the crafts visited most often this year.

Thank You Hide Away Cards

Posted on Updated on

We should be thanking our mothers every day for all the hard work they do. And this craft is just that, a little extra dose of thank you.

The name of this craft includes the name Hide Away because once the kiddos finish making them and writing a little note of appreciation on the back, they can hide them around their house.

They can put one in the medicine cabinet, pin it to the fridge, they can place it in their moms briefcase or even in the vanity mirror in the car. This way every time mom finds one she can read a sweet reminder of how much they love her or a fond memory of time spent together and she will realize how special she is to those around her on her special day.

Hide Away

Instructions

  1. Print out the border template and the thank you rectangles template onto colored card stock. (Template)
  2. Cut them out.
  3. Print the three designs pages. Let your kids pick and choose which ones they want to use.
  4. Color the design rectangles and then cut them out.
  5. Glue the design rectangles to the back of the thank you rectangles.
  6. Then glue the borders 0nto the design rectangles.

Your kids can then take them home and hide their thank you cards around the house.
