a filling of paper flowers.

for my mom's 61st i promised her a flower for every year she was born. after punching paper with the boys for a few hours and gluing a few more and wrapping 61 wire stems in floral wire and adding a few brads to boot we had them ready to ship off to washington. each of these flowers represent a year she has lived and looking at how different each of these flowers are, i can see how each year of her life has been different and beautiful. looking at them all together makes quite a beautiful sight to see, just as each year has made my mom as such. love you, mom.
