Happy Father's Day weekend, everyone! Hope that you're going to spend some time with loved ones this weekend! My parents returned from a 6 week trip to Europe yesterday, so today we all got together for a Father's Day lunch. Obviously we were pretty focused on catching up, but we did have some hamburgers and cinnamon buns for dessert!
So today is a 3 posts in 1 day... For two reasons - 1: my mom was away for Mother's Day this year so I still had a gift to give her; and 2: last year my sister asked for something specific for her birthday and I procrastinated for over a year to get it done (nothing like an impending birth of a new child to make you get all your projects completed!).
Here we go! I actually don't have a picture of the card that I gave to my dad in this post, as I've already posted it - it was one of the cards I made with my freebie Paper Pumpkin kit I received when I joined Stampin' Up as a demonstrator. For a gift, we gave him a gift certificate to his favorite cafe in town. He was pretty happy!
Here is my mom's gift. A few months back we had gone out to an awesome little quilt shop near Sylvan Lake called Nuts for Bolts (which I highly recommend checking out), and found the cutest pattern for owl pincushions. I desperately needed a new one as the one I had made in grade 8 sewing class was pretty much flat - resulting in some deadly injuries if you picked it up the wrong way! My mom asked if I would make her one for Mother's Day, and I happily obliged. She picked out the fabric herself! Isn't it adorable?!
Anyway, she loves it, so I'm happy! Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!! <3 JEM
