Mom's B-Day Present

So, my mom's birthday is this week! Happy Birthday Mom!

Since she is super-busy next weekend, her birthday was celebrated early. On Easter I gave her the present I made for her:

I have had these paintings made for MONTHS. I saw this quote in a Pottery Barn catalog and wanted to make something for my mom with it - what I didn't know. After some thought, this idea came to me.

Making these paintings was SUPER FUN! I used plastic wrapped printer paper (the kind you would buy to make invitations or something) and dipped the edge of it into paint to make the long "stems". I then dotted each stem with a pencil eraser dipped in paint! I really enjoyed making this, and I think it's perfect for my momma!

Until next time . . .
