Celebrating the Special Women in My Life
Yesterday was Mother's Day, and although my own mother has been gone for over 9 years now, there are still plenty of women in my life that I like to celebrate.
I'm posting today on the Timeless Twine blog. This project is the perfect example of how just a little bit of twine can have a big impact. But, back to those special women... There are several women who live in the nursing home where I work that are very special to me. I tell them they are "like a mother to me." I needed something I could make a few of, in a relatively short period of time, that would look special, but whip up quick. Enter my Silhouette, favorite papers, ribbon, and Timeless Twine.
I found this Floral Envelope Bag by Jamie Cripps in the Silhouette Online Store. I thought it would work well for what I wanted -- I could tuck a tag inside, telling the ladies how much they meant to me, and I could make several of them fairly quickly.
I used Fancy Pants Park Bench 12x12 papers, 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon, and of course, a bit of Timeless Twine in Aqua Delight.
I have a close up of the rose. I have some shimmer paper I purchased at a Scrapbook store that's going out of business. You can see the shimmer better in the close up, and the Timeless Twine, too ;)
I hope all you mom's had a beautiful Mother's Day yesterday, and to all you women out there, know that you are one-of-a-kind individuals, and that's certainly worth a celebration!
