Valentines day was during half term, so made small gifts for the boys and included Jacob's in his packing for his skiing trip to Switzerland. The mouse shape was created from a heart folded in two and tail is a lolly pop.

During half term we had our film and craft morning at church and had over 100 people attend. We made note holders with pompoms stuck on a peg and trees from hand prints and hand plants growing out of a plant pot (not shown).

I also kept up with my Christmas card making and added some more to my stash, ready for writing later in the year. I loved the vintage images I picked up in a sale pack form The Range.

First Saturday in March fell as the day before Mothering Sunday, so the them for Craft at drop in was Mother's. The crafts included the handprint tree for those who hadn't made one in half term, a teapot gift bag containing two teabags (so Mum could have tea for two!) and two gorgeous animal pictures showing mummies and babies, put together using paper piecing from templates.

I'll update you on choose a university for Josh and how the Spring Cleaning challenge is going in upcoming posts.
The Bible verse for this week is reminder that through Christ, who died for us, that healing comes. For us as Church this is quite timely as we are finding out about the Healing on the Streets movement. It also reminds me of the healing I received at last year's Spring Harvest event for my painful shoulder, which although very occasionally still hurts, it not nearly as painful or frequent as it was. Actually when the pain returns it often reminds me that I am trying to rely on my own strength and not God's, who has provided my healing.
