Paper Ruffles & Memories


I've been working on baskets for Mother's Day gifts... pretty paper baskets with crepe paper ruffles and ribbon handles just waiting for a special trinket to be tucked inside the nest of shredded paper. I enjoy making things that bring a smile to others, but I also enjoy making things that bring back memories ~ like the ones I have of my Mama making bouquets of crepe paper flowers when I was a little girl. I loved watching her making something beautiful out of something so simple as paper.
