In honor of Mother’s Day I share with you a few traits about myself that came from my mother. I love hand written letters and nice stationary. I appreciate that as a child my mother had me send out timely thank you notes with as the best handwriting I could muster. In this day of email, twitter and texting I say long live the handwritten letter. Whether you like a more traditional note or a younger looking card, everyone appreciates a letter or thank you note in the mail.
Whitney English’s fun notecards.
I wish my handwriting had been this beautiful!
I grew up outside of New York City. She gave me an appreciation of the arts and music, and I fondly remember our “New York Days”. She also taught me how to work in the garden. Our azaleas were recently in bloom.
On Mother’s Day I am grateful for my two little boys. Normal Rockwell got it right.
Sometimes I have the feeling that they are thinking this…
but they are really as sweet as can be….
My mother influenced my creative side, without that I wouldn’t be a designer or blogger!
What did your mom impart onto you?
Happy Mother’s Day!
