My Grandma celebrated her 99th birthday this weekend. It is amazing to think of all the changes she has experienced in that time. I made a few small things for her.
I wrote down 99 memories I have of things I recall about her and put them in a little scrapbook. Because we lived only a few miles apart, many of my childhood activities included things we did together. Things like gathering huckleberries and hickory nuts in the woods. Family dinners with special foods- frosted gingerbread cookies for Christmas, turkey and dressing for Thanksgiving, and custard eggs for Easter. Sewing and cooking together. Her singing and playing the piano. And always flowers-- she grew all kinds of flowers: gladiolas, roses, cannas, calla lilies, and even gardenias. She made corsages to wear to church, and made my wedding bouquet.
This little box has 99 M&Ms in it (chocolate is her favorite).
The card has flowers of course.
Spending time recalling all the things we have done was very special.
Welcome to my stamping and crafting blog. A few years ago I began stamping and have finally found the perfect hobby. I especially enjoy designing unique projects and creating one-of-a-kind gifts for others. I am a Stampin' Up! Demo for personal use only which means I do this for fun not a business. All products are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted. Please contact your local Stampin' Up! demonstrator if you would like to order some of the wonderful products.
I am a homeschooling mom of three super kids (two now in college) and have a wonderful husband who operates a busy consulting business. We have a delightfully busy (sometimes crazy) household with lots of extra kids who hang out, multiple cats and an energetic golden retriever. Stamping is my creative therapy; my little piece of alone time. I hope you enjoy visiting.
