Now that I am a grandmother, I can look back and see what I did right, wrong and strange with my children. We have all had good and bad to deal with. I see my children parenting my grandchildren and am impressed that they do as well as they do. I am very impressed as to how they deal with everything given the things that happens these days!
The one thing that I know for sure, if I had the chance again, I would make it Mother's Day All Year for my Mother. I want the world to know that she was perfect as she was, warts and all (well, she did not have warts, but you get the idea). She single handedly endured, persevered and created a stable life for my brother and me.
You may also know that I am a big fan of the AlphabetXpress that AnnTheGran offers. I wanted to do something new and different and I think I found it!
Those colors are OK, but seeing something done correctly in coordinating colors is a eye-opener for me!
** As I have noted before, I wish I were a good colorist, but until I am, I RELY on packages like these . AND, also The Incredible Threadable Boxes have FREE SHIPPING right now (have you seen what shipping costs these days???) from Madeira - a highly trusted thread and color expert.
I can only think of a zillion ideas for this type of work. Totes, wall hangings, new born babies, children, Bible verses, and so much more. BTW, without Alphabet Xpress, you will need a MUCH MORE EXPRENSIVE software!
Alphabet Xpress, Madeira and me, an unbeatable combination - IMHO,
