  • “Oh, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pour them all out, as they are, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then, with the breath of kindness, blow the rest away.” Dinah Mulock Craik


Practicing the Presence of God

  • He is always near you and with you. Do not leave Him by Himself. You would think it uncivil to leave a friend by himself who was visiting you. Why abandon God and leave Him by Himself? ~Brother Lawrence

Mother Teresa Quote

  • Thoughtfulness is the beginning of great sanctity. If you learn this art of being thoughtful, you will become more and more Christlike, for His heart was meek and always thought of others.

Beautiful. They look like Eric Carle made them himself.

That's amazing, Donna! I'd love to try this.

This is GREAT, Donna! I think we'll try to do this this summer. My dd-5 just saw it and was very excited!

There pictures are amazing - and truly "Carle-esque." Thank you for sharing and inspiring us here.

Donna - that was me apparently logged in as my daughter...oops

This is incredibly awesome. :)

Late to the party, as usual, but I wanted to tell you how much I love this! Your color and design choices are perfect for imitating his style.

I actually saw EC in person at an Early Childhood conference back in my working days. He demonstrated his technique, and encouraged us to try it with the children we taught back home. Since my little "students" at the time had significant special needs, it would've been too complicated for them -- though it would've made a great cooperative activity with kids from a daycare classroom or older grade, now that I think of it.

In fact, it'd be a great cooperative activity for my three little ones right now! I am inspired!!!


Those are awesome!

Incredible, I can't wait to try this with the kiddos!

Hey Donna,

Where did you find commercial grade tissue paper?

  • Then, without realizing it, you try to improve yourself at the start of each new day; of course, you achieve quite a lot in the course of time. Anyone can do this, it costs nothing and is certainly very helpful. Whoever doesn't know it must learn and find by experience that a quiet conscience makes one strong. ~Anne Frank
