Last week was my mom's birthday. She is the best mom ever.
|My mom on the day she was inducted into the Oklahoma Educators Hall of Fame|
When I was a kid, she proudly displayed the stuff that I made all around the house. Like my quilling. And my needlework. And even my paint by number of a red rose on a yellow background.
And you know what? Even if though I am a crotchety old middle-aged lady, even today if you go to my mom's house, you will see my quilling. And my needlework. And even my paint by number of a red rose on a yellow background.
And lots of pictures of my kids on the refrigerator, because they are the best thing I ever made.
Anyway, I wanted to make her something special for her birthday because this was a special birthday for her.
So I made her this.
It may look familiar because I've made these butterflies before, but this time I used lots and lots of RED!
Red is my mom's favorite color. Her house is red. Her car is red.
Her lips are always covered in bright red lipstick and if you're lucky she will cover your cheeks with bright red Katy kisses.
Lucky for her, there are always a lot of red pictures in RDCBs that can be transformed into all kinds of flowers. See that little butterfly taking a big whiff? (Or maybe he's just enjoying that cork!)
And this big butterfly flitting among the flower?
You'll have to take my word for it. Or you could just go see it at my mom's house. It's on the shelf in her living room. Right next to the quilling. And the needlework. And the paint by number red rose on the yellow background.
