I Owe It All to Mom {Heart Of Haiti}

My dear, sweet Mother.
I really owe all of Oopsey Daisy to my Mom.
She taught me what it means to be a mother.  A wife.  A teacher.  A creator.  A homemaker.  A friend. 

Growing up, creativity was not my strong suit.

My Mother's old Bernina sewing machine has always been her truest ally.  Believe it or not, I had to be forced to sit down and sew when I was a kid.  I had no patience for it!  Imagine my Mama's surprise when I asked her to help me make a quilt for my husband's Christmas gift just a few years ago?!
That sewing project was the beginning of all my creative endeavors, and truly the beginning of this lil' blog.  Many of the crafts I share can somehow be traced back to memories of crafty endeavors from my childhood. 


My Mom is still there to help me dream up new projects.  To fix my mistakes.  I can't tell you how many times she rips out my stitches for me because I wouldn't have the patience to finish otherwise.
