Fun with a Boring Gift


We had dinner with my Mom last night and gave her some Mother's Day money to put towards flowers for her garden.  She shops at a garden store in her town (that is not in mine) & I hadn't had time to run down and get a gift certificate, so we had just planned to give her cash...boring.  It's times like this that I am thankful for the Internet!  One quick search & an added pipe cleaner and we had a cute "origami" flower to give my mom instead of a boring envelope.  Livie was so excited to give it to her that she insisted I let her pose for pics with the flower before we left (I also played with the A Beautiful Mess photo app on the pic above).


The other quick change that happened yesterday was with my current work in progress.  The project on the left became the project on the right.  I like both (and both are just starts), but I think the end product of the right pattern is going to work better for the gift I am giving (more on that later)...
