Ever feel so overwhelmed when coming back from vacation and the career track reminds you of how much you were missed while gone? Well....spent hours catching up and then rewarded me and Noah...he is so patient since being out of school and friends away....
Do you have someone on your list that you have been stumped of what would be the perfect gift and then.. VOILA! it comes to you like a snowball on the nogin? That was the case with me this morning and I had so much fun making this mug rug/ placemat for my mother-in-law. Lynda has an infecitous laughter that I love to recant in my mind when I need a lift to my spirits. Sean wanted to give a gift with a laundry basket idea and hence........the gift.....
The story is detailed below in cartoon form that I sewed on the back of the coaster which is stiff interfacing. I hope it will inspire a belly laugh!
When Sean was younger, he would put his little brother in the laundry basket and slide him down the stairway and into the wall, the wall with his mother's teacup collection....The teacups did not do as well as little brother Kevin....Needless to say, it is the famous family story that is recanted often and so a coaster/ placemat to CELEBRATE the family giggle.
And you put it all together with some cheeky female sayings on a magnet, post-its and lip balm case, coffee, which is Lynda's favorite item in life next to her family, and of course a mug that CELEBRATES....STORIES! Voila, Gift basket that will arrive a little after Christmas but will hopefully pack a punch of fun!
What is your last minute project you are enjoying whipping up or what is your "TOO"sdayTOO full of?
