May Meeting Recap: End of the Year Celebration & Photobooth Fun



The 2015 - 2016 MOPS year has come to an end!  We have loved "Flourishing Fiercely" with y'all and wanted to celebrate a great year of great mamas!!!  Read on for a recap as well as some absolutely awesome pics from our "MOPS Photobooth" at the meeting!  Such fun!


Devotion

Katie, maker of these beautiful cookies, shared a devotion with us about having an eternal perspective.  Her words were timely and wise and you can check back soon for a post with the full devotion.  Thanks for sharing your heart and cookies with us Katie!!!

Video

Sarah put together a great video montage of pictures from throughout our 2015 - 2016 year.  We'll post the video soon on the blog so keep an eye out for that!

 

Craft

We put together beautiful flower canvases this month - perfect for our Fierce Flourishing theme!


Instructions:
  • Choose canvas and petals. You will also need 1 circle for the center of your flower.  
  • Layout your flower petals on your canvas in the design/order that you like. For the edges, you can wrap around the canvas, or trim flush with scissors. 
  • Removing 2-3 petals at a time, use your sponge brush to apply a VERY THIN layer of glue to the canvas. Replace your petals and press to seal. 
  • Continue this process until all of your petals have been glued in place. 
  • Use a Sharpie marker to add writing to your canvas if you wish.
  • Using a VERY THIN layer of glue, cover the entire front of your canvas to seal the petals, starting with the first area that should be dry by now. 
  • Note:  If you see any petals not sticking or bubbling up, smooth these and add more glue if necessary as you go



 And here are a few examples of finished canvases that our talented moms created...



Photobooth Fun

Y'all.  Our moms are THE BEST.  Look and see for yourself...








Thanks to all our fabulous MOPS mamas for a great year!  We love you fiercely flourishing women!!!

Hope to see y'all over the summer and can't wait to see you in the fall for another year of MOPS!!!  xo!
