However, next Sunday, go ahead and lavish your Mother with more than a hug and kiss--give her several! And if you still feel like you want to give her a gift, make a handmade one that she will treasure always.
Here is an art canvas I made for my Mom several years ago. It's still one of my most favorite projects ever. Even though I've posted this before, I'd like to share it again in case you missed it the first time.
8" x 8" and 8" x 4" canvasses tied together with ribbon;
each canvas painted and then decoupaged with designer papers;
Yes, that's really me, just minutes after I was born.
Note the year: 1956
(Ohhhhh! Am I THAT old?)
Scrabble tiles spell out "DAUGHTERS"
Chipboard used to spell "LOVE"
Additional embellishments: chipboard scroll, button and
silver heart charm tied to "E"
Then added ribbon, brads and flower
Finally, current year of bottom photo: 2010
I had so much fun creating this wall hanging canvas for my Mom. It still hangs in her kitchen so she sees ii everyday.
Every few years, I update the bottom photo of my daughters and me and change the date. So this year, when my daughters are home, we'll snap a few new photos, and decoupage it to the canvas when we visit my Mom.
Sharing at these parties. and
