May? What? It is May already!!! Mother’s Day is just around the corner, I was in panic mode again because I have no idea what project to come out with. Fortunately, I was inspired by Micheals’ Mother’s Day Gift Idea [click the link and see the pipe cleaner flower on the decorating mug (top right photo)], my heart-beat rate and blood pressure went back to normal, no more crinkle on my forehead, no more finger biting, and no more head-scratching…. I am safe!!! 🙂
I always wanted to come out with something quick and easy to make for Mother’s day craft so that kids can make it for their moms too. My little pom-pom chick immediately came to my mind (remember I made a basket out of them?). This time I am converting the chicks into turkeys (I make another 2 smaller white turkey chicks) by adding pipe cleaners tail and make them into a mommy-baby pom-pom turkey brooch, especially for this coming Mother’s Day celebration!!! You can get the pom-pom and chenille pipe cleaner from Michaels.
Now, I am done with the Mother’s Day craft, I better start thinking of Father’s Day. Getting into panic mode is not fun and I don’t want to trigger a heart attack and can’t even say bye-bye to you all… lol… just kidding! Whoops… looks like my annual body check-up has been overdue for years, let me ring up the medical center to schedule one soon. Hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day, remember, a better life needs good health!
Are you thinking what I am thinking after seeing the brooch? How about turning this pom-pom turkey brooch into Thanksgiving Card Placeholder in November?
