As I sat trying to contemplate what to give my sweet Mom (and Mother-in-love), who put up with me and love me always and forever… no matter what, I created a masterpiece. I didn’t fully intend for it to be a masterpiece, but evidently God had other plans! I simply wanted something beautiful that would reflect how I felt about my moms and the beauty I see in them.
So, what did I create? You’ll have to hold on for a few more paragraphs… tee hee…
First I want to tell you about my Mom! My mom is the kind of woman who managed to always have a clean house (still not sure how she did/does it and am trying to figure that one out) while caring for the entire world around her. Our friends were always welcome to partake in the abundance of goodies she readily had on hand and she was always on hand to lend a listening hear to those who needed one.
How do you get something for a mom like that? Well, since I don’t have the funds for things that she truly deserves… I had to be very creative. Naturally, I turned to my two strongest skills: photography and graphic design to attempt to find a solution. And find a solution I did! In fact, when I showed a few people to get their reactions and check to see if I was on the right track, they were so excited about the gift that they wanted to purchase some themselves. Well, why not?!
So my seasonal portraiture artwork card sets were born. Currently, I’ve only created a Spring set full of blossoms and sweet sayings. Additional sets are in the works for the near future and will be available for purchase. If you’re interested in purchasing a set for yourself or to give as a gift to someone you love, contact me. They are now in my storefront. Simply click on the image below to take you there…
It was so much fun to give these to my Mom (and Mother-in-love) especially when they loved receiving them as much as I enjoyed creating them!!
Happy Mother’s Day to you all!! Stacee
P.S. I realize that for many it’s a wonderful day filled with celebrating a special person who was and is vital to their life. But for so many others… it’s a hard day, even painful, a day remembering someone who’s gone on ahead or those wishing they had a mom or could be a mom.
My heart aches for those of you who are feeling loss on what should be a special day.
Wherever this day finds you… I want you to know you are loved exactly where you are.
If you don’t have a mom or child (even if you do)… perhaps you could consider finding a mom or child that you can bless in some way. Reaching out to bless others (even if it’s in secret) always has a way of healing and encouraging our own hearts.
Hugs to you all!
