I hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day. I had a wonderful day with my sweet family. They pampered me and showered me with lots of hugs and kisses. I didn't get a chance to post about my Mother's Tea at Sean's school on Friday, so here it is...better late than never.
This was my first Mother's Tea and it was so very special.
Upon arriving in the front froyer with some other moms, Sean and his classmates came down and greeted us with these gorgeous paper flowers made from coffee filters.
Our place setting was just gorgeous...a placemat, a paper tea pot, another gorgeous flower and some yummy cookies.
The children then performed lots of songs for us and went into the hallway to put on these darling t-shirts.
We then had a chance to open our presents...a beautiful hand-decorated apron and a gorgeous plate showcasing Sean's drawing. I was quite emotional as you can see from my shiny eyes in this photo.
It was such a special day and I loved every moment of it. I am richly blessed and so very grateful.
I just realized yesterday that if I want to have my Mother's Day cards arrive in time for the special day, I need to get working. I made three so far; four more to go. I think I will do variations of these.
The idea for this card came from a lampshade advertised in either Pottery Barn Kids or Pottery Barn Teen.
I used fabric to make the flowers on both of the following cards, but I think I will make some with paper too.
I will be finishing mine tonight so I can get them in the mail tomorrow. It is hard to believe that Mother's Day is on Sunday. Time is flying by!
It is a great little bag for little hands to store things in and/or use to clean up books and toys. It then fits perfectly on a doorknob or hook in his or her bedroom.
Luke loves his and has been using it to carry books and his stuffed dog love, Rusty.
Of course, I have to be a fair momma and make one for Sean. I have the fabric picked out and I am hoping to work on it today. I am going to try making his with denim rather than linen. Let me know if you try your hand at making one of these.
Is this perfect or what? About a month ago, the darling and fabulous Kristina Proffitt raised money for the MDA. From all the donations she picked a name to win a $100.00 gift certificate from A Million Little Things online scrapbooking store. To my shock and dismay, I was the lucky winner!!!!! And how fun that my box of goodies was delivered to me today-- National Scrapbooking Day. I cannot wait to work with all this fun stuff! Thanks to Kristina and Jill (the store owner) for their kindness and generosity! I hope you are all enjoying your NSD!
