My Crafty Mommy!

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Monday, May 04, 2009
Hi everyone! I just had to share this picture that my Dad emailed me! My Mom recently went to California to visit a couple of her Sisters. Now, my Mom always has to bring home a souvenir for her coworkers, but on this trip, she couldn't find anything that she liked enough to bring them. So, while she and her Sisters were at a friends house, they picked some lemons off of a tree in the yard. I don't know exactly how many lemons she picked, but she packed them and brought them home. Of course, she had to do more to these lemons! So, she went to a local quilting store and bought some supplies. She wrapped the lemons in yellow tulle and tied it off with yellow pipe cleaners, adding a small tag stamped with a sun! On the inside she wrote "A little sunshine from California!" Now, isn't she just clever! I love my Mom! I guess some of her creativity wore off on me!She also baked some cookies (Peanut Blossoms), and those she put in the decorated tubs (that once held popcorn)!
