I've been away from the cyber world of late - living in the real world - with gardening, plants, and family!
Our family dug our vegetable garden out by hand and...
also dug out some new landscaping in front of our house.
Blooming daisies
Loaded Rose Bushes

New Mint Plant
Fun pot of annuals.
Hope you're enjoying the beautiful weather where you live -- 
Happy Memorial Day week-end to all my USA friends!

Free Printables - Mother's Day

Today I'm sharing the little gifts I did up for my Sunday School kids to give their moms on Mother's Day.
The gift tag reads:

God loves you and I do too
I like to spend my time with you
So take a look insdie this sack,
and you will find a special snack
As we share this snack today
Have a Happy Mother's Day!
Inside each gift bag was:
Two candy bars

Here's the tag I created to clip on the outside with my handmade (magnetic) decorative clothespin.

Mother's Day Gifts

Sharing the ruffle tea towels I made as gifts for all the ladies at church this Mother's Day.
I made several different color schemes/styles so there would be "something for everyone."

I got quite a bit of positive feedback - the ladies loved their handmade gifts!
Each lady also received a little bag of homemade chocolate chip cookies!

Patriotic Table Runner

Here's a patriotic table runner I made for the Etsy shop.
The runner features a big burlap star and gingham stripes and ruffles on muslin.
