The skills she taught me have served me well in my chosen career, as a wife, homemaker and mother of 4 on an extremely limited budget. I know I'll never be able to do or do as well all of the things my mom made look so easy but I enjoy the challenge and I get a lot of personal satisfaction out of finding creative ways to make all that I can out of what I have.
Just before Mom died I started formulating an idea that I was very excited about and looked forward to sharing with her along the way. She would have been an incredible resource and better than anyone else, would have understood the thrill of bringing it all together. I never got the chance to tell her about it. Her death took me away from home for a month and put the project on hold. While it has moved forward some...it has a long way to go. It will be a bittersweet journey and one that I will want to share with her at every turn. Instead, I will share it here with all of you and hope that you will appreciate all that my incredible mom brought to my world.
I'll intersperse other projects and other ideas for making the most out of what you have, as well. Hopefully you will find some useful ideas and inspiration mixed in with the failures, mistakes and comedic moments that are sure to come.
