My sister, Lauren, and I are blessed with an awesome mom! AND....we all get to work together! So, with Mother's Day coming up, we thought we would start off the week with a little tribute to our mom, and fellow blogger.
Lauren and I literally grew up in the craft & hobby industry. Our family owned a craft publishing and distribution company and mom ran the creative department. The creativity followed mom everywhere she went. From the time we were babies, our rooms were adorned with mom's creativity. My room had painted apple crates & a decopaged toy chest (groovy 70's!). Lauren's room had hand-sewn bedding, handmade dolls and baskets (totally rad 80's).
We grew up where creativity was not just allowed but encouraged. And even though we may not have known it at the time, mom was giving us a gift...an education. She was nurturing our creativity with gentle, loving hands. Today, we all make a living doing what we love...and we do it together. We don't always agree on everything but we compromise and work things out. The laughs are plenty and the adventures are great. Thank you mom. Thank you for giving us the gift of creativity and self-expression. We love you!
