Okay, well not really 100 Moms, but I do want to wish everyone a very happy, yet belated Mother's Day! Thank you all for your comments and well wishes...I'm grateful that you come by once and a while to see me! :) My Mother's Day was great...awesome guy did a great job putting everything together. I got to spend the day with them, got flowers, lovely handmade and musical cards, a chalkboard pig, paint pallette, and a victorian phone (how fitting!). Awesome guy also grilled some salmon for me...my fave. I truly don't order it out anymore because nothing compares to his!
I made this painting of my Mom to give to her...my parents came over for dinner too. She is known for that tealish aqua color and her slider necklace!
My paper mache adventure is coming along. Thank you Pea for your advice...it made a big difference! :) It feels good to make something out of nothing and I'm realizing just how much paper is coming through my house! Kneading it after the blender is my favorite part...so squishy and relaxing. I am covering everything with my tons and tons of paper mache, but the closest to being done are a few Santas and an angel that decided she would much rather be a mermaid!
I'm also including a sneak peek at the card I'm making for Caroline's 100th Birthday for Karla at Karla's Cottage. The background is fabric and at first I thought it didn't scan well, but it did turn out okay. :) It is of Caroline as a child, based off of a photo Karla has. I love the way little girls dressed back then. :)
Oh and we are making another fairy house...Lil wanted one for our garden too! I have this tree...first it was an orange tree, then the lemons took over...we called it the lemorange tree. I'm kind of bitter (lol) that I have a lemon tree now, but I'm trying to make the best of it. It is now the fairy tree. I use the branches I trim from it to make the houses. The branches that are left are covered in windchimes and a hummingbird feeder...even ribbon! I'm going to decorate it like crazy and Lil's fairy house will be underneath with a fairy bath, mini fountain, and teacup bird feeder. We are also going to get a mister so we can be out more during the summer.
I have some really fun things to share with you all in the next couple weeks...I can't wait! But I hope in the meantime you will settle for a giveaway! I went to Micheals on Sunday and they had the Donna Dewberry how to kit on sale for a buck! It shows how to do nests, hummingbirds, butterfllies, etc. Lil and I sat down to paint and I tried it out....I am on SUCH a bluebird kick these days...funny cause I never ever see one!
Love to all! Mere
