Remembering Mom

With all that has gone on over the past couple of weeks I have really been thinking about my Mom.  She passed away 20 years ago of Alzheimer's and as most of you are aware you lose the person mentally long before they pass. Mentally I lost my Mom 10 years earlier.  I was blessed with a very tallented and special Mom.  She taught be at a very early age (2 years old) how to sew and although her tallents far surpass mine, her creativity has rubbed off on me.

This week at Cardabilities the sketch caught my eye and my creation was inspired by my Mom.  There was also another Challenge over at Crazy 4 Challenges that was tag related as well.
My Mom had taken an old watch, she never threw anything away and always repurposed items, and make a pin that I still wear today.  I get so many wonderful comments on the pin and I used this pin as my inspiration.
I hope you like what I have come up with and Mom Thanks for watching over me!


Your comments mean a lot to me so please don't forget to leave one.
