My Royal Mom

For the last little while all I have been seeing and hearing was news on the Royal Wedding. It has been interesting to watch and see the fairy tale unfold. It was fascinating to watch the customs of the British common wealth. I was trying to figure out what I should do for my Mom for Mother's day and all of this royalness kind of got my mind to thinking. The most Royalty in my family would have to be my Mom!  I decided to make her some towels for my "Queen Mom."
I got to work with my embroidery machine and made these for her.
I used different crowns and made her three so she would always have one clean to remind her of who she is to me.

I added some more pampering items in a box.

of course chocolate was included.

And also one of my felt cupcakes. If you missed out on how to make these go here.

I wrapped it up in a Royal box.

With of course a Royal bow and gave it to my Royal Mom.
I want to tell you about my Mom. We have always been best friends and all through my life she had always been someone that I looked up to and could also share my life's problems and successes. She has supported me in everything and then when I had children she supported them in every game or activity that they had. It was great that she supported my children when we lived so close but when we moved an hour and a half away she didn't miss a football, basketball, or track meet then either. She is an amazing Mom and she has friends wherever she goes, I think I can go almost anywhere, even out of the country and she will find someone that she has a connection with. (I guess if you are royalty that is the way it is.)  The last few months she has a new battle to conquer, she was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin's lymphoma and will have her 3rd chemo treatment next week. Her hair is starting to fall out and she now sports this very short doo. I told her she sports it quite well and she is still so beautiful. I love her and know that this battle with cancer is one that she will beat.  She is a survivor and has always shown me that when things in life get hard you just need to try a little harder. I love you Mom and hope you liked your Royal gift.
Happy Mother's Day!

So, if she's the royal queen, I guess that makes you the princess? What a beautiful tribute to your beautiful mom.
