Last one, I promise

Last screenprint for a little while. I need to deep clean the screen and actually make something out of the stuff I’ve made so far. I keep finding new surfaces to experiment with and curiosity gets the best of me.

I finished a project!

We're Not Just Women, We are Moms

Really, this is a rather amazing accomplishment for me these days. I’ve been working on this for months and I am very happy to see it done. So anyway, this piece is called ‘We’re Not Just Women, We are Moms‘ and it is for Breaking Traditions 2008. This year’s theme is With One Voice and it has teamed up with Fiberart for a Cause. I went with my MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group as a topic.

Here’s my blurb about it:

Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) exists to encourage, equip and develop every mother of preschoolers to realize her potential as a woman, mother and leader. I have been a part of my MOPS group since 2004. They have touched my life, given me everlasting friendships, unconditional love and support and made me a better person.

While whimsically splashing the woes of motherhood onto a classic idea of the perfect mom, the heart of a mom is nourished with the aid of MOPS. She thrives in motherhood with support and encouragement from those around her whilst caring for and loving her children.

You can see this in person in September at the Sewing Expo in Novi.
