Happy Mother’s Day! (and a Puzzle!)
Sunday, May 10th, 2020

The winner is…Christine!

First, Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there!

I spent last evening working with the 6-year-old to make a special mom’s day gift for my dd. It was “super-secret” and mom was warned away from the craft room. The little one chose the beads—a very pretty, dainty, black hematite accented with silver and rhinestone spacers. Then I cut the elastic and supervised her as she strung all those little beads (took forever, and she dropped a few), until I could tie the knot for her. She was very proud of herself. Then I let her work with my Derwent watercolor pencils to draw a special card for mommy. I loved every minute. She was soooo excited about making something she knew her mommy would wear often. I was excited to share something I know how to do with her.

I imagine she’ll be begging to “bead” often now. 🙂

My own mother passed this last January. So, this is the first Mother’s Day of my life that I’m not celebrating with her. I, too, remember making her paintings that she hung on the fridge. I miss her every day, but more so today. Happy Mother’s Day, mom.

A Puzzle

And just for fun, and to play to win a $5 Amazon gift card, solve the puzzle and tell me what it’s about!

    I left and thought I was far enough that no one would find me but someone is coming.

    Nothing was going to stop him from his mission. Not the mountains. Not the weather.

    Looks like he is on a covert rescue mission up in the mountains.

    He’d been heading home after a long day when he got the call that a child had been reported missing. With the storm worsening, he and his canine partner gear up to head out to join the search team. They’ve rarely failed to find what or who they seek, and he’s determined they won’t start now.
