I have been accepted into Poppytalk Handmade and I am really excited about it! I have loved this site for ages and finally took the plunge and applied (thanks to Michele for convincing me to do it!) so now you can find my books and a few of my paintings there.

Mother's Day was great, but busy! I went back home to my parents (although didn't get to spend a lot of time with them, sorry mom and dad!) and went to a friend's college graduation party. We have been friends since preschool (we met on the bus on the first day) and she is very dear to me. Her mother and my mother are also best friends :)

I made her this for graduation:

And here is a picture of us in ballet together when we were 6 (I'm the one with the ringlets):

I also gave my mom this exquisite necklace from The Peach Tree for Mother's Day (she loved it, Amy!)
When I came home on Sunday, my husband had a beautiful bouquet of handpicked flowers for me, and had bought me a vacuum (a symbol of domesticity, I know, but I really wanted one!) The best part of Mother's Day, though was the road trip with my daughter, and singing goofy songs together. Yes, I love being a mom.
