Words of Wisdom: From my Mother

Pin It As an adult (and a mother) I catch myself repeating the little "mantras" my mother used to say to us. I remember rolling my eyes as a teen when she would chime in with her little rhymes or words of wisdom. I laugh now, only because most of them have become my inner voice... forever reminding me that I can do & think better. One of my favorites is: "Can't never did anything... but... I'll try sure did!"... I hear this in my head daily. LOL.  So, to pay tribute to this little tid-bit of positive thinking... I decided to design a 4x6 card that I'll print and frame, to hang in my art space (and possibly my office too. lol) I decided to use flowers from Tangie Baxter's collection to beautify this card... they always make me think of my mom.


  1. Oh, I love this... I think making cards in honor of your Mom's wisdom is BRILLIANT! Recently I purchased a card from the 1950's my Granny had hanging on her kitchen wall: "The Hurrier I Go the Behinder I Get." I love it. Preparing to make copies for my children to have in their homes, too. :~)

    Glad to find you from the Blog Dare today!

  2. Hi Leslie! Stopping by from last night's "bacon class"!

    I love the card you designed! Such a great reminder plus I love the idea of stuff you learned from your mom!

  3. I love this card you created! And I love the saying Miss Julie shared above!

    I feel as though I am turning into my own mother on days I hear myself telling my kids things my mother told me!

    "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."
