Mom's

(SOLD)



This is the time of year I start thinking about my Mom. Even though she has passed - I still like to make something in her Memory. This is in her Memory...a 4X6 altered notebook. She loved sitting on on our porch and enjoying the birds singing and watching the flowers coming in bloom. I miss seeing her on the porch when I came home from work. Here's to my MOM! If you can give your Mom a hug, or phone call today, please do it.

Wow that is awesome! You must have tiny fingers to be able to thread all that ribbon throught the spiral. That looks great. I might have to CASE you on this one :)
