“She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.” Proverbs 31:13

As I have mentioned before, at some point all the writers of this blog has been involved in the same MOPS group. Throughout the past 18 months, we have mentioned MOPS in various articles and how the group has shaped us in to the mothers and leaders that we are today. If you are not familiar with MOPS, read Why MOPS: Because You Are Not Alone!
Currently, Gretchen and I serve on the steering team, Sarah and Melissa are mentor moms, and Dana is a new member to MOPS this year.
Part of MOPS is taking the time to learn a new skill be it leadership, a new craft, new recipes, etc.
A couple weeks ago, we had a craft night with our MOPS group. We had 15X30 pieces of wood that we used as a blank canvases to create a piece of decor for our home. Here is what the writers of Mosaic of Moms came up with:
Jennifer: I completed my board early so that I could help the other mommas at the craft night. I have seen this quote a lot lately and found it very fitting for our family. My sweet cousin cut the letters out for me and we Mod Podged them on. I painted a wooden letter “M” for Mullen and glued it on. I will hang this on my family picture wall.
Gretchen used various fonts of stencils and traced the letters for this board. Then she used a paint pen to fill in the letters. It is a family rules board that she found on Pinterest.
Dana free handed her quote in pencil first and then painted over it. All that Zaner-Bloser handwriting training in her education classes came in handy. She custom blended the paint to match her bedroom. Here is her Pinspiration.
And here is her final product:
Sarah started with this Pinterest idea. She used graph paper to help with the layout. My cousin cut the words out for her. She Mod Podged them on.
See below for Sarah’s project summary.
We had a great time fellowshipping with the MOPS mommas and learning a new skill. It was much easier than I thought. So easy I might try it again.
