Just Be Happy

Sunday, May 2, 2010

Mother's Day is approaching I can't help but wonder how my life would be if my mom was still around. I try to imagine the things that my mom would have made for Lucas, little knitted sweaters, crochet blankets, all the PJ's she would sew and then paint little things to make it even more beautiful. I also wonder if we would exchange handmade gifts on Mother's day... I really miss my mom, she was an awesome crafter, cook, mom and wife and I think that's why I craft so much, I think that's our little special connection, I feel closer to her. :o)

I love being a mom, my little man is a gift, my days are filled with happiness, his smile brightens up everything and since I had him, I no longer want to sleep through mother's day so it passes fast, I enjoy it now!

I just can't let Mother's Day go by and not craft, right? Well, I don't think I can. So, I am putting together a little bath kit for my mother-in-law, I crocheted 2 washcloths with a beautiful cotton yarn that I bought from CT awhile back (Yarn Alegria - color Primavera) and will put bath salts in a little bag and buy a nice bar of soap and wrap it all pretty.

Before I go, I'd like to let you guys know that I have donated one of my crochet necklaces for KraftyKash's blog anniversary giveaway. Pop over there and enter for a chance to win!

Happy Sunday!


  1. Today (1st Sunday of May) it's Mother's Day in Spain so HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to you!

  2. Here in Mexico, Mother's day is May 10th.

    I'm sure you and your mom would be exchanging delightful packages of mother's day gifts. And your crafting is a continuum of hers, a homage to her, IMHO.

    Thanks for the shout out! hehehe!

  6. i love what you said about your mom.

    my mom and i arent close. we used to be, but her personality has changed a lot in the last year or so and it's hard for me to be around her. i definitely miss the person she used to be.
