Celebrations

Happy Mother's Day!

To all you mom's out there, the unsung heros! If you have a mom in your life celebrate her and enjoy the time you have and give her a big hug! I miss being able to hug my mom.

flowers My son and hubby gifted me with a beautiful bouquet of flowers they picked while out on a bike ride today. I thought my son did a great job arranging them in the vase.

Celebrate Friends...

is the theme of this wooden shadow box shrine I created. I first painted it with acrylic paints and then added paper in the backs of the cubbies.

I've been wanting to play with the wooden shadow boxes I sell on OTM and friendsshrine1finally gave myself permission to play....do you ever do this to yourself? I'm forever telling myself that I have to do such and such first before I can play....I suppose if I didn't do this I would just play all the time and never get anything else accomplished.

friendsshrine3I knew I wanted to use the color combination that I did, I just wasn't sure what I was going to put into the cubbies, but it eventually came together as I used up things I've had.
