A Cardinal



Cubby brought this pretty cardinal home last week. I love cardinals and have them tucked all over my house, in my christmas tree and my holiday wreath for the winter. I've been trying to get a picture of a cardinal sitting on a snowy evergreen branch for several years now...to no avail. So when Cub came home with this guy from kindergarten I just had to frame him. Complete with red glitter!! Glitter,
Glitter, Glitter....I love to help in his class and I've dubbed myself as the "glitter girl"...his teacher looooooooves to embellish all of their art work with glitter and I loooooove to help with it. I think we all need a little more glitter in our lives :) He has THE.BEST teacher for kindergarten......a dear friend who is amazing. She puts her heart and soul into preparing her children for what is to come in live. Cindylou and T. had her as well so we all prayed for years that when the time came he would be blessed by having her as well. She doesn't know it...but as she teaches my child, she is also teaching me. It is sooooo true.....the most important things in live are learned in kindergarten!!!



I always like to frame the best of my kids art....it always looks even better...and they feel so proud and important. It goes by so fast....before you know it they don't bring art home anymore....and this way it will be preserved and I can set it out on my mantle every winter. This cardinals wings are actually the shape of his own little hands...I will always treasure this.

That is such a great picture. I have framed several of my kids' "masterpieces." They are great decorating and do make them feel special.

I always think that I'd like to have 4 "rotating" frames in the kitchen to showcase each of my kid's art. It would also cut down on the clutter!
