Happy Mother's Day to the bestest mother in the entire world. Trust me, she is. She's the strongest woman I know and made me the person I am today. She's never doubted my abilities and has always been the biggest fan of the work that I do. If it wasn't for her, I probably wouldn't be as crafty (or stubborn) as I am today. We didn't have a lot of money growing up but I never realised it but she taught me to make do with what I had. I never felt like I was missing out on anything. When other little girls were getting dolls for Christmas, I got craft supplies. She may not be as crafty as I am but really, that's to be expected - I'm a freak of nature. I'm a craft freak. I live and breathe crafts - but it can all be attributed to her. She once knit a scarf when my brother was a baby. She said it took forever. Yet you put her in a kitchen and she can make some of the most amazing things in the world. My mum is a better cook than your mum. No lies. She's made me appreciate the ability to take raw materials and turn them into something amazing with nothing more than your own hands and a few tools. It's a skill that I cherise and cannot thank her enough for.
This year I made something small for her but I think it turned out pretty cute. A small amigurmi bear! I plan on making a matching (with reverse colours) for my father. And it has a magnet in it's hand so when the second one is complete, their hands will stick together. I'm such a sucker for cute things.
I love you mum!
