Today I’m excited to share our segment from yesterday. Thanks to our friends over at Arizona Midday for streaming it online. We talk about two Supermom secret weapons for preserving your family’s memories — a smart phone and Project Life!
We created this darling Smile Blossom craft as our monthly contribution for Raising Arizona Kids magazine. We were thinking of Mother’s Day, but when the girls brought home a note last week from the PTA saying that Friday would be “bring your teacher a flower day,” I decided these blossoms would be perfect for that too!
Growing up in Phoenix I have often heard people talk about how we lack the seasonal changes. It’s true that things are a bit backwards here — barbecues and picnics are Fall and Winter activities for us. Our Fall doesn’t usually arrive until December or January. Of course no one would argue that Arizona is missing Summer, but we also have a very lovely Spring. The array of colors might not be what you’d expect, but the desert in bloom with greens, purples and yellows is a glorious sight!
I think the reason people say Phoenix lacks Spring is because for those living in the Arizona Desert this season does not bring feelings of excitement but rather a sense of foreboding… any day now, those hot summer temperatures could be setting in for good.
So for our craft contribution to Raising Arizona Kids magazine this month we shared a fun DIY project that encourages everyone to celebrate Spring while it lasts. We turned an empty salad dressing bottle into a colorful and fun vase.
