Mother's day is quickly approaching, so this craft got priority over the others. And costing less then $10 for all my supplies, I have enough to make for all the women in my family and even my 3 bestfriends. Now that is thrifty!
First I sent my husband out to Harbor Freight. He is probably the only guy I know that hates home improvement /tool stores. He bought the Stamping set for $4.99 (on sale) and I picked up a dozen different sized washers from Home Depot for $2. I got home, got my hammer and went straight to pounding. I made necklaces for my mom ("Bubbe"), mother-in-law ("Grandma"), and Sister. For my sister I used 4 different sized washers. The biggest washer says "Yishai & Shalom" (her two oldset boys). The next size down says "Nissim & Mendy" (the two younger boys) and the next smallest says "Shira" (Her youngest baby and ONLY girl). Then the smallest one on top says "Mom". I then laced all of my sisters together and it took me less then 20 minutes to do it all.
I have a few more I'd like to make. I'm still deciding on what I want them to say though.
My name is Kim. Not Kimberly, Kimber, Kimbo or Kimbob. Just Kim.
I'm a mom to 2 young girls. I struggle with ADD. I have itchy feet (meaning I really want to travel more). I crave community/family/friendship and I dream of one day living in a cohousing community. I love to craft. I'm not talented or creative. But I appreciate the arts.
Each day I learn more about myself and others and I use it as an opportunity to grow.
