Mothers Day Surprise 2014
My mother has eight children and this year for Mothers Day I made each of us a single rose with letter beads and a single pink heart representing each of her children. After the pink heart I added pink and blue beads representing our children and grand children. So each rose had a string of beads representing how many children love her bunches. My rose was the only one with a charm that was butterfly wings representing my sweet baby girl in heaven
In the morning as a surprise we all gathered at the church unknown to her and each of us handed her our rose. She was in tears and so was half the congregation lol. Even my father had a time keeping from allowing the tears to flow. After wards we gathered for a dinner to continue the showering of love for her. What a lovely day it was.
So I was reading a blog by Then she made and found this really cool way to make a soup storage can holder so I thought that I would try it myself so I start with a box like this then I cut the end off of my box because my pantry doors would not close because the box was too long then I taped the end I just cut off back to the place i just cut it off of but I tucked in the ends then I cut half way down the place I just taped to make a hole that I can pull the cans from when I need one Here is the finished end of one side next on the opposite side I cut a hole in the top so that I can add new cans to the back as I buy them that way I always use the oldest first next I took scrapbook paper and covered the box
I used this spray adhesive only because I love it! rubber cement will work just fine or what ever glue you wish
and here is my finished product! Woo Hoo I did this in only one hour! not bad I am quite happy with it. see how it works.....cans in back and pull out the front
I am so happy each year that my "Disney Land Rose Bush" blooms.
My sister and brother in law gave us this Rose bush about eight years ago and it still flowers every year
I know... I have blogged about my bush before but I really LOVE IT
I love the large blooms
I love the way it changes color
OH! Look what I found...
In years past I have had a problem with aphids
But not this year thanks to this sweet little man
