Mother's Day Gifts......check!

Now that the flu appears to be out of our house and life is coming back in to focus, a wave of panic has taken its place with all the upcoming projects and events that have snuck up on me while I was in a two week flu haze.

Cooper is turning two in just over two weeks...invites, theme, bouncer oh my! And then it hit me.....Mother's Day. I fretted all night over mini album ideas and then I realized I had actually planned out gifts months earlier and already had all my supplies. Glass pendants....check! Chain and findings......check! Bails and E600......check! Diamond Glaze.......check! Picture of the boys....check! Jewelry maker........OOPS, she moved! My friend Kelli and I picked out and purchased chain and findings right before she moved but I forgot to make the pendants and mail them to her in time. I realized I was going to have to attempt a new craft and quick.

Luckily, I have several of her pieces to work from and I had studied her style enough to put these necklaces together for gifts and speaking of that.....Mom, stop trying to figure out which of these is yours because neither are, some things can stay a suprise!
I tried to get a close up of the pendant but it didn't focus quite right on the picture, it looks much better in person!

And they were all packaged and tied with ribbon and topped with a handmade paper posie and off in the mail they go!

"The Nana" is so excited! My beautiful and delicate silver necklace arrived today!!! What a wonderful Mother's Day present! I can't wait to show it off to my friends and "The Poppa"! I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful, thoughtful and loving daughter... and to her - and all the wonderful women I've come to know through her blog - I wish the same happiness I have on this upcoming Mother's Day and every day! Thank you, "Woogie"! Love and hugs from your Mummy!
