mom was into crafts. And she was really, really good at it. She could sew too. She made a lot of my clothes. Even though I hated homemade clothes. What a brat! But I remember the things she would make out of things we might just throw away. In this picture of her with a couple of her things: on the left, the snowflake, is made from the old-fashioned type pull tabs from a beer can. Do you remember those?? She put them together(what with, I don't know. It was before we had hot glue guns) and covered them with glitter. Very cool ornaments to hang on the tree. The other thing she is holding is a 'kissing ball' that is made from medicine cups, dipped in green glitter and glued to a Styrofoam ball. That hung at her house every Christmas after she made it. I wish I still had them. But those were things that didn't get saved when she moved into the nursing home. My mom loved Christmas and she loved crafting. Sadly, I didn't much inherit either from her.
