My mom made this ring basket for a friend of hers as a retirement gift. She and I are very different; she is more free-spirited and random, while I prefer patterns and to map out the pattern I'm making. I like how her flowers in this basket are just sort of here and there, wherever she felt like putting them. I think the color combination is very nice as well.
And now, please indulge me while I have a short mommy moment. I have been scanning and uploading N.'s artwork on Artsonia and just scanned this lovely card from him. I think it says, "I love Mom" because he got tired and didn't feel like writing "Mommy." On the inside it says he loves me because I take him to McDonald's for breakfast every Saturday morning. Hmm. That's some wishful thinking right there.
Have you heard of Artsonia? It's a really wonderful site where you can upload children's artwork and share it with your friends and family. You can also purchase items with the artwork on it, such as mugs, magnets, and the like. It's a great way for schools to share their art exhibits as well. Uploading my scans was very easy; the downside is that it takes 1-2 business days for them to appear on the site. You can also visit the Museum to view different art galleries. There is some really great artwork on the site. Take a tour!
