Hi everyone, Sandee here to share a Mother's Day remembrance project with you. My mom passed away in 1999 and I am still dealing with little treasures that I cannot bear to part with. This table top mirror that use to sit on her vanity is one of those, so I took it out and decided to alter it in her memory. First, I layered 3 different mediums on to the tarnished frame. It was indeed in need of some tender loving care and I let all those layers thoroughly dry first.
Then I used my Helmars 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to add some lace trim to the base. I love how the 450 does not seep through the delicate lace and yet holds it firmly.
I used the Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to adhere the sentiment and the pink flower to the frame. Then, I used my Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to prop up the blue flower at an angle. This adhesive just amazes me everytime I use it!
My Treasure - For Mom
by Kit McCallum
I look back on these years
To see how far I've come and grown,
I take a trip down memory lane,
And what I see has shown ...
That every step I've taken,
You have been there by my side ...
From infancy to adulthood,
We've stood the test of time.
You cradled me and nurtured me,
Through all these many years;
You held me and did comfort me,
Through happiness and tears.
You'd pick me up when I would fall,
You'd dust me off and then,
Encourage me to get back on
That horse and ride again.
Your constant care and loving,
And your warm inviting heart,
Has always been a treasure that
I knew would n'er depart.
If I could be "just half" the person
You have been to me ...
Then you have taught me well dear mom,
For in my heart I see ...
A woman whose most gentle soul,
Embraces me each day ...
A woman whom I dearly love,
Much more than words can say
