better late than never.

I'm usually about one month behind when it comes to celebratory holidays. This isn't completely true when it comes to Christmas -- I usually find myself tangled up in a frenzied Christmas haze until the world comes screeching to a halt on Christmas Eve, everything finished just in time.

Ugh. I so wish that wasn't the case.

The other holidays aren't so lucky -- and by other holidays, I mean Mother's Day. I was fiercely determined to make a Mom's Day card for both my mom and my mom-in-law this year... I started in April. That's right, one month before the big day.

I finished them at the end of June.

But... better late than never! I don't know who coined that phrase, but whoever it is -- your phrase has helped generations of unorganized peoples apologize for their procrastination. Thank you, kind stranger.

Without further ado, the cards.

    1. Jan -- the more mom figures in my life, the better! ...or were you offering just to get a card?! :)

  2. I cried when I got mine...tires of joy. I do have the best children,and daughter-in-law, anyone could ever hope for. I am truly blessed.

    1. TIRES of joy... yikes! You'll need some heavy-duty tissues for those babies. heehee!! Glad you liked it. :)

  3. The second card makes me think of that story mom tells of you or Elena baking with her when you were little. You put something in the bowl and mom said "Way to go Elena/Suzanne!" And you/she looked down at her shirt, looking to see if you'd spilled something and said, "What?"
