a little family time...means so much.

Hi there friends...

Feeling kinda nostalgic and missing my mom..Not much scrappy to share from me, but I just wanted to show you all something my mom made for me. My mom has always been crafty and very artistic...she even scrapbooks now... =) She has painted with some medium or another as long as I can remember.. She use to do fabulous oil paintings and worked with pastels. About 10 years ago she started working with watercolors. I currently have two of her creations in my home.. an oil in my living room and a watercolor in my dining room... they are both fab. well, last night, i had a chance to hang out with my mom at my sister in laws open house and she brought with her a fabulous watercolor for my office at work. I had a very hard time photographing it due to the glare.. i did not do it justice. It's a beautiful winter scene. The mat is a lovely shade of purple that matches the colors in the painting. I just love it!!!!!

My mom is the best, most awesome person I know. she is always so upbeat and has that special something that makes people gravitate to her. she's like a magnet, you want to be with her. she makes everyone around her feel good. i cherish the time i get to spend with her and wish we lived closer to each other. it's only 2 hours away, but it still seems so far....

Here is a layout I did of me and my mom a couple years ago. love you mom!!!!!!

I'm really looking forward to our family Christmas in 2 weeks so I get to see her again.
Thanks for reading....=)

Happy Sunday!!!!!
