Mason & Margot’s Trip to the Moon…

M&M locket, box and care instructions

This locket was inspired by Becky’s nephew Mason and his love of the moon, as well as the 1902 George Méliès’s film Le Voyage dans la lune. Mason & Margot’s Trip to the Moon invites you to create the story behind this moon-struck couple as they explore the surface of this celestial body.

A mysterious light is on in the window leaving us to wonder what awaits Marceline.

We took advantage of the beautiful weather this weekend and spent sometime outside breaking geodes. Even Eva & Charlie got into the action…
We had a variety of different geodes to work with, the ones pictured below are from Mexico and resemble under the sea coral formations…
All in all we had a productive afternoon, completed crystal dioramas to follow.
