Happy Mother's Day!

Wishing all you mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day!

 The boys made me my handmade cards and picked out these flowers and I see a box of chocolate too, so I am a happy mom. I think we will be going out for brunch soon and a nature hike somewhere and then back home to work on our house projects.

I finished up the mosaic bird bath that I was working on....a bit funky, but it will be tucked away in the garden somewhere to add a bit of color to all our greenery.

Started this hooked bird last night...

and more cats that need some personalities....

fabric owls are starting to come to life....

Doggies for the shop,

some owl pins that got re-worked,

and a painting that I am working on for my online class with Mati Rose McDonough.

I changed this kitties eyes a little bit...

and my real kitties are being nice to one another as they nap on my bed and favorite work space.
Have a great week and make lots of stuff!

I adore what you are creating and I love your cats!
I was so glad to hear you gals who went to France (to have some creative time with Julie Arkel) were published in 'Mingle'...I went out and bought my own copy right away when I heard the good news! Oh! I would have given just about anything to have been there with the select lucky ones who were able to make the paper mache` puppets. I was 'over the moon' when I saw all of the photos Denise posted on her blog Grrl+dog...I was literally giggling my head off! Such whimsical fun!!!
Happy Mother's Day too!

Thank you for visiting my blog too, Mary.
I had a relaxing Mother's Day, after going to Napa for two days during the middle of the week.
The month of May is already flying by!
I haven't been to Solvang in a long, long time. I must tell hubby we need to take a trip there.
Have a lovely week!
