What day is it?

Wow.  May is pretty much a blur -- actually, I think the blurring began way back at Easter -- everything's been thrown off since Easter, which came early -- and now Memorial Day seems like it's a week ahead of usual, and it's been so cold -- did I mention the frost warnings earlier this week?

Mother's Day was in there somewhere, and this was my gift from the girls:

Tulips by Katie, Bleeding Hearts by Ali, Fantasy Flower by Maddy.  Ali bought the (gigantic) mug at Starbucks; it came with a special marker to use for decorating.  They sat in a row on the couch at my sister's and I watched them decorate.  After drying for 24 hours, it was further cured in a low-temp oven for about a half-hour.  Voila!  The most absolutely perfect gift possible.

What a lovely present! I love the fact that it's all black and white...very stylish.

lovely and what an artistic family!

Love the mugs. You have very talented grrls to do that kid of drawing free hand! Relax and enjoy your weekend.

So beautiful, the perfect gift for mom!

Absolutely gorgeous, exactly the perfect mothers' day gift -- that and of course the girls themselves!

Unbelievably perfect. So nice to have a houseful of artists.

Great mug -- I love it!

That mug is fantastic!

Awww. Sweet.

The mugs are great...just the thing from your "budding" artists!

What a great gift! The mug is nice, too :-) (The gift I was referring to was the sight of the three of them sitting together on the couch and decorating it.)

Your daughters are blessed with your artistic gene! That mug will be treasured more and more as the years pass by. Its a beauty!
