The Dress

The moment my mom offered to make Penelope's Easter dress, I jumped all over the idea.  I cannot emphasize to her enough, how much I love and cherish every item she has ever sewed, crocheted, or quilted for me.  I save each item and hold it dear to my heart.  I am so grateful my daughter has some very special pieces from my mom.  I know how much work, time and love she puts into everything she makes and I think that's why it means so much to me.  I hope that one day P will cherish her Easter dress as much as I do.

Each item my mom has made has not only been beautiful, but especially thoughtful.  This is something  my mom has always been good at doing.  As far back as I can remember, my mom has always given us kids a thoughtful card for each holiday and birthday.  You better believe I have saved every single one of them.  I have a stack of them in my night stand and look at them often.

It only made sense that after having my own daughter, I would follow down that same path.  However, I didn't get the sewing gene, nor do I think I have the patience.   I do however, have a passion for words and photography.  These two things combined are how I show the people I love, just how deep that love extends.  

I was so excited when I found Treat greeting cards, a place where I could create personalized cards, from home.  They have the most darling selection of cards, where I am able to add my own personal touch, through words and photos.  They are rather brilliant, if you ask me.

I order this one for my mom and can't wait for her to receive it in the mail.

This is by far my favorite dress Penelope has ever worn and am currently counting down the days until she gets to wear it again!  Thanks mom for turning me into a sentimental fool!
