I am feeling sentimental lately, maybe it’s because I am getting older. I had a conversation the other day with my mom and we realized she and my dad have been married for 50 years. It got me thinking of all of the lessons I have learned from her and decided to create something dedicated to those lessons. Today for Monday Craft Madness I used Tim Holtz Burlap Panels to make a wall decor highlighting all of the lessons my mom has taught me….. So today’s theme is:

Tribute

Create something about or for someone you love; a layout about your grandmother, a card to send to your best friend, or like i did, some home decor that you can look at every day. Here’s what I created:

I try to use all of these sentiments in my everyday life. My mother has exemplified each of these sentiments each and every day of my life and I can only hope to be a little like her.

I love that these burlap panels have a little bit of design and texture already there, it was a great base to get started.

I am going to hang these in my craft space so hopefully each and every time I sit down to create, I can get a little inspiration from my mom.
