Mom, Diamond Painting..

Mom has been busy with
diamond painting..
a few times i walk by and see the light shining
and know shes working on them.
i try not to scare her when i walk in
the porch and sneak a picture 
through the window!

she finished this for sister Jana
i think shes going to get it professionally framed 

she made this for me
thought the background was to dark
and hard to see the pitcher.
when i got it home and placed it, its perfect! 


i snuck this picture in
we went out for pizza for my birthday.
mom, dad and my Dennis.. 

mom made sister Jana and I each one of these
for our birthdays..
Janas father in law made the frames. 


here shes working on some kittys! 

this is her latest project
i took the picture today..

Enjoy Mom!
they are all beautiful! 

we have snow and high winds today..
Happy first day of spring
my blog friends and be careful out there!    jody
