Today is the last day of the month and I am here to welcome you to my Crafters of Faith card! The Crafters of Faith blogging group is a joyous blending of Christian friends ~ joined together to fellowship, share our faith, build friendships and craft together!
I am the hostess for August and this is the challenge I posted:
Memories of Mom and Dad! Exodus 20:12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
Even though my parents have been gone for close to 20 years, I still have wonderful memories of both of them. Some of you may have one or both of your parents still an active part of your lives and for others, the memories are what we hold close. So--what can you create on your card that reminds you of you mom or dad or both of them? A site from a family vacation? A hobby--music, gardening, literature, art, etc.? A favorite food? Your mom cooking? Your dad spending time with cars? Or vice versa . Create a card that shines of the memories that honor your father and mother.
Enjoy this trip back in time--or maybe it is just a few steps back of a recent memory. Tell us in your blog post about your card, the memory it unlocks and a bit about your parents if you want to share. I cannot wait to see all of the wonderful memories you create and post on August 31st. Have Fun getting inky!
I grew up on a farm in Central Wisconsin, as many of you who read by blog know. We were a dairy farm and as a typical farm, we had a windmill. It was not an active one--but it did turn all of the time. We also had flowers that grew along the bottom of the frame.
That is one of my favorite memories of the farm where I was raised and it still is there as far as I know. A few years ago, a cousin from Germany came to visit, and we drove to show them the farm--there stood the windmill!
