Thinking 0f Our Mothers

It’s time for our MAY CHALLENGE: Favourite Moments with Mom (or a Mother figure in your life) Think of special moments with your Mom, from your childhood or adult life.  Maybe you remember baking cookies, family dinners, travelling, or walks in the park, soccer practice, or bedtime stories. Whatever it is that brings back happy memories for you should be what you work into your project for this month. HOW you work it in is up to you! Just let it be the inspiration for your project.  If you’d like to share your thoughts  about Mom with us  in describing what inspired your creation, that would be wonderful! Our team has created some personal projects for you here to help get you started! Peggy made this sweet bookmark.
