Happy Mother's Day!

I hope everyone had a really great Mother's Day. I had a wonderful weekend celebrating. Saturday we took a drive to see my Mom and Dad. We had lunch, played family games and visited. It was a beautiful day with a lot of love and laughter. 

Today, I woke up to 3 wonderful handmade cards from my kids. My husband made breakfast and gave me some flowers to plant in the yard and a hammer! LOL! A hammer you say? Well just ask any tool junkie and they will agree, that tools are wonderful gifts! I have been struggling with getting good impressions when making my metal stamped necklaces and this is one hefty hammer! I should have no problems now. We finished up the day with dinner and more games with my Mom-in-law. It was great.

The picture above is me modeling the apron I made for my Mom-in-law for Mother's Day. It's the first major project I have made with my new sewing machine and it came out great. I got the kit on Etsy from Mary Kay of Geneva Designs. Let me tell you, she makes the cutest aprons and also sells kits to make your own. Everything is pre-cut so you can get right to the fun stuff. I really enjoyed making it and Mary Kay is wonderful to work with.

For my Mom's gift, I got her a book on the Alice in Wonderland movie. It's the visual companion on the making of the movie. She once mentioned that she hoped there would be a book that showed all the artwork from the movie. This book is really awesome, it shows all the characters, their costumes, the sets and more.  My mom makes pictures and caricatures with polymer clay and this book will definitely inspire her creativity. I'm excited to see what she makes!
