I know, it has been too long since we have done… It Started with $1. Here we are April 1st and I know I have at least three lined up!! WoooHOOO!! So for this one, it all stared with a trip to Dollar Tree. I found this cute chalk board. I knew I could use it. But the wood was super light. and the back was plain… hummm

I got Mom to help!!

We have a family friend that was the victim of a shooting. So knowing that Mom might like to help be create this gift. I went out to Illinois to see what she thought. We worked on the design together. I am thankful that Mom helped. Fun memory for me. Our Family friend has stayed Strong, fought through several struggles. Now she is working hard to gain back her new life in a wheelchair. I know even with all these struggles she is all these things:

Resilient, Strong and Beautiful.

Wanting to be encouraging and add a touch of pretty to her space. This I hope was and will be a reminder when needed. I pulled out my favorite (retiring) stamp set, Strong and Beautiful. Adding in the Hydrangea Hill DSP and the Pastel Pearls for the flower centers.
