Happy Mother’s Day!

This will be my 23rd Mother’s Day…because I absolutely celebrated that 1st one when he was growing inside of me.

the fam!

God has blessed me so much with a wonderful Mother, Mother-In-Law and amazing Grandmothers…not to mention the three wonderful children that I gave birth to…and the dear one that we have added this year (officially in August).

Happy 21st Birthday to my dear Lauren…

dear LaurenShe liked the burlap bag I made this week so I made her one.  We were all together yesterday (my best Mom’s Day gift) celebrating our son’s college graduation so I was able to give it to her.

It only made sense that I make one of these for her, because…

#3 – These coffee bean bags were hers.  She worked for a coffee shop that also roasted it’s own coffee.  These bags would arrive @ the shop full of the green ‘Fair Trade’ coffee beans.

  3. Hey – one of the intern girls likes my bag a lot… she wants to know how much you might charge for one. Of course, I wouldn’t want it to look too much like mine 😉
