I didn't make this, Mom did for me about two Christmases ago. I was excited though, when I moved out of my old apartment at the beginning of last summer we misplaced it...until a few days ago! It makes me smile, the kitchen is finally complete.

"I'll Take You For a Ride on my Big Green Tractor..."

What's the quickest and most sure fire way to get me to do something? Pretty easy, tell me I can't. Someone told me I couldn't make a tractor cake and I had to prove them wrong. (And this has nothing to do with being a Shaw and slightly competitive...)

The tractor was pretty easy, I ended up making it out of rice krispies

Cowboy Boots and Tractors

Chocolate, mmmh. White chocolate, wonderful. White chocolate with mint, even better. Then turn it into tractors and boots, oh it's marvelous.

Sisters really are the best friends.

I absolutely loved this project, there couldn't have been anything easier; staining a wooden block, vinyl lettering, a few flowers and jewels, tie on a ribbon...

Happy Mother's Day

I'm really bad at being patient and waiting for things, I think just about anyone will agree, and after finally finishing Mom's Mother's Day present I couldn't wait again to give it to her. (Four days is a long time.)

There was a poem that used to hang in Mom and Dad's room that I absolutely loved that this reminded me of.

If my friends would all desert me
I wouldn't worry, fret or pout,
For as long as I have my mother
I've nothing to worry about
Though I lose all and still have her
I shall not grieve a minute
To me she's worth the entire world
And everything that's in it

Happy Mother's day, just a few days early
