Once upon a time...

When I was young, I was amazed by many different crafting my mother did. She is really talented in this field of handmade work. Knitting, crocheting, fruit /veggie and soap sculpturing, ribbon workings etc. Just name it! She taught me these stuff, but I'm never good at anything until we discovered bare-hand clay modeling. We made flowers and veggies brooch and earrings. Some sold to my school teachers and some we displayed at home. Many years later, my mother is getting older, her eyesight is no longer as good as it used to be and she can't do all these crafting any longer...

I've been making and selling my miniatures for quite a while already and we were discussed about techniques on the mini-making. She never had any chance to see my works before and always wonder how do they look like. I finally managed to get a small wood-glass cabinet display and put some of my works in, cakes, tarts, pies, and gave to her as a New Year present. Saw happiness and all past time remembrances in her eyes worth a million...

Love you mom...

What a beautiful tribute to your mother.I know how much I would appreciate it if my daughters did such a thoughtful thing.
You are also remarkably talented.

Somehow I feel like I'm consuming my mom's time as I'm growing up stronger while she's getting older and weaker. I'm blessed to be her daughter and I love everything we went thought together, laughs and tears. I wish I can bring back her youth...

Daughters always love her mommy only that they express their love in different way.

Thank you UniqueNurseGranny. You are loved. *hug* :)
