this week the heidi swapp media team and petaloo are teaming up and sharing some projects and gift ideas for mother's day.
follow heidi on instagram (@hkswapp) to win the petaloo giveaway.
she will be picking a winner on saturday!
the Petaloo petals took to the Color Shine in a beautiful, deep and stunning way.
i had never played with petaloo before...
so this was a great chance to see how the Color Shine...well...shined!
this is one of those projects that really needs to be seen in real life.
the contrast of the primrose, georgia peach and gold lame against the black velvet on the frame is stunning!
(can you tell i am running out of gold lame?)
i started with several sprays of the gold lame...
then went with some sprays of the peach...
then the primrose...
and just went back and forth until i was happy with the result.
but it really caught my attention when i was working on this project.
i just kept ruminating over the sentiment and it really found a new place in my heart.
being the mom of five children at diverse ages, i am really experiencing the emotions of the parallel thought expressed here.
it is almost gripping me.
and causing me to respond with a change in some priorities.
we truly do not have their hands, their beings in our lives forever.
but i strive daily to make sure that our relationships are such that i will indeed have their hearts forever.
lots more details can be found today on heidi's blog.
if you are a mother, i wish you the most beautiful mother's day ever.
and if you are not...i hope to share an open letter from a non-mom that she recently posted to her pastor...
it really touched me deeply,
and caused me to respond in kind by reaching out to a very special woman in my life that is not mother...
she is not mother in the physical sense,
but despite the realities in her life...
she strives to be mother in an emotional sense...
and how i have been able to observe that through the years causes me to really love and respect her.
maybe there is someone in your life that you could reach out to this mother's day and love on them too.
