|Mom and "Pop"|
My Mom is the focus of the Week 4 Focus on Life subject: Create Art. This is one of my very favorite photos of her as a young girl with my grandfather. I focus on my Mom because she and my grandmother were my creative role models. My mother was a very young bride – 17 years old – and her wedding was soon followed by my arrival on the scene! In a way, we grew up together. She was a stay-at-home Mom and out-Martha’ed “Martha” with her love of cooking and sewing. She made almost all my clothes and ventured into other art forms like dolls and ceramics.
But the most memorable was my wedding gown. The year I was married, two of my brothers also had weddings and I capped off the year by asking Mom to make my wedding gown. No wonder she looks a little too happy in this picture. She’s probably ready to run down the road screaming for joy that it’s all over! Thanks, Mom, for all the creative skills you modeled for me and the many wonderful hours we spent together.
