MOTHER’S DAY’S GIVE–HOUSE OF HELLO
this weeken is mother’s day. I buy a house of hello bag for my mother. and I will take the family out for a picnic at the park.
Get in the kitchen and make some sandwiches, pasta salad, or some other portable meal.Then whisk everybody away to a local park for a picnic and some play time outdoors. Take a walk, sit around, talk to people, play volleyball, or go at night and watch the stars. how about you?
I took a small circuit board out of the trash that my hubby pitched. I wire wrapped it in fine silver, it started blinking numbers. I made a wire wrapped pendant out of it and sold it at a local farmers’ market.
My daughter, who now is in her 40’s while on Drill Team in high school, wanted to be a tube of toothpastes for Halloween. So we bought a tube of toothpaste and got a white sheet, sewed it up like a tube and hand painted the graphics on the sheet. We made a hat out of cardboard. It was so fun making it created such fun memories.
Years ago, I had a girlfriend who looked like me…same hairstyle, hair length, body type, everything. When we went out, we would wear similar outfits. This one evening, we went to a club to celebrate her birthday. She was of legal drinking age; however, I was not. I was just shy a year. She was able to get into the club with some of our other friends. I waited outside by the car. She handed off her driver’s license to one of our girlfriends who left the club with another friend. The friend gave me her license, and I was able to get into the club because we looked so much alike! Pretty crafty! :womanlol:
The Craftiest (and proudest) thing my MiL and I’ve done was a Special Olympic Album as a Thank You gift for the Special Olympic coach and his wife when my son was in Special Olympics. There was 56 athletes including my son and each one was featured twice thru out the album for the sports they competed in. When we finished the album, there was 65 scrapbook layouts and was given to the coaches at our end of year party.
We were short on cash and needed a cute table center decor. I used the cheapest paper plate, ribbon, and glue to create bowls, decorated with glittered designs, and filled with pretty fresh flowers
My sister and I used to make mud pies in the back yard. We decorated them with grass and flowers. We would then use the sun to "bake" them. They would actually get dry on the outside and stay wet on the inside. Sort of a new version of a dirt/mud cake.
I made a 11 by 14 anniversary card with their pic for my mom and dad’s 50th anniversary this year with my cricut. It was a huge hit. I sat it on a easel as a centerpiece.
Anna Griffin, you are a creative rock star and a personal hero – stay on HSN forever, and ever and ever! I use my new Cricut almost every day.
Pictures of the tree costume I made for my son. People kept thinking his costume was a turkey even though I put a bird in a nest on the hood.
MANY years ago, I embroidered flowers and bumblebees all over a pair of jeans. I wasn’t even that experienced at embroidery at that time, but I LOVED those jeans. To this day, I wish I had saved them.
On Mothers Day, my mother has a big family dinner, and we all go there.
NOW … before you think … well that’s terrible that she has to cook on MOTHERS DAY ..
It’s OK … 1) she never has to cook , my father does all the cooking in the house ( and I mean everything, down to making the morning coffee ) my dad spoilers her everyday!
2) she wants the family together on the same time so what better way than to have a set dinner time
3) she wants to make sure none of her daughters get stuck cooking on that day! :womanvery-happy:
