I'm a little teary as i write this. I have a wonderful mum. she is my idol, i think the world of her. she has so so much love in her, she has creative hands, she's warm, gentle, funny, ambitious, strong and everything good in between! she's amazing and i feel incredibly lucky and blessed to have her as my mum.
She inspires me with her creativity. we work well together. i admire and look up to her. we all do....
Our Mother's day was just as sweet as those white peonies i bought for her. we enjoyed our outing last sunday very very much. Hardy and i took her to den Bosch, to a fair for all jewellery makers! oh my god!!! we almost went crazy when we entered the hall! we were there for more than 5 hours and had an excellent time looking at each and every single bead and findings! brilliant! we enjoyed ourselves!
Aidan made a card for Oma as well! does he take after his mum, you reckon? oh well, maybe just the pasting skills!
Coming back from the fair, mum said to us in the car "i am the happiest mother in the world!" and on behalf of my sister and i, i'm sure we think the same, we're the most luckiest and happiest daughters in the world mum! enjoy all your beads and treassures! you're our true gem! we love you!
"No painter's brush, nor poet's pen
In justice to her fame
Has ever reached half high enough
To write a mother's name."
To all mothers, i certainly hope you've had a good Mother's Day!

Good times! we certainly had some good times in Switzerland and Italy! it was quite a trip but we have had a lovely spring break. snapped more than a thousand good shots and now scratching our heads as to which to chose for printing! sorry I didnt get the chance to write about these few stuff before i left. i did manage to get them posted though! we hosted a dinner and with the packing and all, i just didnt have the chance to blog about them. and now that i'm back, checked my email, boy! i've got so so many emails to reply!
Here's a board and a notebook i made for Zura. she liked the album i did for dad and asked for a similar one but smaller. so this one's a notebook for her to scribble her notes. I love adding metal embellishments to everything these days! they're absolutely charming!
Zura wanted to give an anniversary present to her other half and i told her that i'd make her a board with their initials and she could hang it. the brown center bit is a space where she can add a photo of them together.
Off to another order.. another board. Ema wanted to hang something in her new kitchen. she loves cupcakes (arent they cute?!). i covered the board with fabric and used one of my white doilies (something every kitchen and craftroom should have!) to decorate.
I wasnt sure of the length of the board that would suit the spot in her kitchen. and so i figured the best way is to provide her with a long ribbon and pegged them with a painted peg. that way, she can adjust whatever length she choses.
Apart from buttons, i love pegs! i collect every size from the tinest to the old ones... Added chipboard for her name, cardstock saying, buttons, lace and trimmings i bought at czech republic and voila! i really enjoyed myself working with these two projects!
I should be off now. we currently have a guest staying over and i'm taking her shopping today before i go fetch Aidan at his playschool. thanks for hopping by! i hope the weather there is much much better than what we currently have here in Sittard! the clouds are out today.. i miss the birds and the sun and hope they'll come out pretty soon! regardless the weather, i will surely have a good day! i hope you do too!
