Happy Mother’s Day!

I want to send out a Happy Mother’s Day wish to all of you who are Moms.  Whether you are a mom of the human kind through birth, adoption or fostering, or a mom of the animal kind be it dogs, cats or a whole farm … Happy Mother’s Day!  🙂  On this Mother’s Day, I had a glorious start by visiting the head Mom in our family, my Grandma!  For those of you who have been with me through the years, you know that I visit her every 7-10 days, taking that bumpy ride that makes my middle son throw up from the motion sickness.  I still visit her 3-4 times a month, but I only bring the kids once a month due to the bumpy ride.  Although still bed ridden, she is currently in good health and as keen as can be.  She absolutely adores the great-grandkids and their visits really bolsters her spirits.

Here are some pics of Mother’s Day.

The ride has gotten much shorter with this new bridge!

Mother's Day

The new sections ends soon …  I didn’t even notice the guy carrying the window(?) on the scooter until after I saw this picture!  They transport a lot of things on scooters!

And this is where that nice bridge ends, cue bumpy one-lane road. See the two trucks heading toward us?

Mother's Day

It’s not even rainy season yet. It’s going to get ugly!

Mother's Day

But we don’t mind all that in order for her (and us) to get this: love!

My mom passed when I was six, so she couldn’t be in this picture. This is still pretty awesome, nonetheless.

My two favorite girls: Hayley and Gram. This is a girl pile full of cuddles!

Hayley took a picture of us for our Glamour Shot! 🙂  She’s working on her picture-taking skills, but this is alright.

So thank you to all who have sent kind thoughts and notes about my Gram.  She says she’s got another month on this Earth, but she has said that before.  We never really know, do we?  Until then, I will savor my time with her and try to give her back all the love that she’s given me.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Who will be the winner of the 10,000th item on Etsy?

We are getting close!  A couple weeks ago, I wrote about our huge milestone coming up, and now we are on the cusp of having a winner.  Currently, at 9942 items sold, we should have a winner within the next week, unless my crystal ball is not working.  🙂

Can I start the countdown?

Can I start the countdown?

Whoever’s (whomever’s?)cart contains the 10,000th item sold, will get that item and the entire cart free, up to $100.00!  I’m curious to see if it will be a brand new customer, a woman who is trying out a new skill for the first time who will make a clutch for her friends, or if it will be a woman who runs her own business and needs to get some more frames to make clutches getting ready for Mother’s Day sales.  Not to slight my few but wonderful male customers, it could be one of them needing some more Gutermann glue to their clutches, too.  We will have to wait and see!

Mother’s Day clutches

Check out my latest album.  This one honors the mom on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 13th.  Other than this one special day to celebrate mom, we often hear “Hi, MOM!” when TV cameras hone in on someone who’s on TV for the first time.  Why is it that our first instinct when caught in the big lights of TV cameras is to wave and scream “Hi, Mom?”  I’d like to think that the excitement of the deer-in-the-headlights feeling takes us to our core, to what’s important, and in many cases it’s the mom.  🙂  Why don’t we say “Hi dad?”  We do, but just in the minority.  The majority amongst us have the most contact with their mothers and feel closest to despite dad’s increased involvement in child rearing.

So you all know I support and honor women.  Whether you are a mom yourself, or yet to be, or are perfectly content with being aunty, this album’s for you!  I’m sure you’ll find several clutches in here for your shopping list.

As for me, I’ve got a busy week ahead with my husband on yet another business trip.  My oldest is turning 10 (egad!) on Friday and another birthday party to attend… then Mother’s Day.  My wish is to wiggle my nose so that all my bills are paid, my piles of papers magically fly into the right folders in the filing cabinet, and I have time to get a leg wax and pedicure.  I’m looking kinda like a … sasquatch.  TMI?  😉  Well, one of those wishes will come true!

Have a great week and Happy Mother’s Day this weekend to all the moms out there!
