It's the Mother of all Ornament Thursdays!

Because our theme is... Motherhood!!!

Our featured artist this month is Michelle McGee who has created an adorable little booklet on Mommy-isms!

Have you ever said any of the following?

Go ask your dad.
Don't make me come in there!
Go play outside. It's a beautiful day.
Why on Earth did you do that?
Don't run in the house.
Life isn't fair.
I don't know is not an answer.
Say your sorry and act like you mean it.
You should know better.

Check out Michelle's entire booklet of Mommy-isms, plus a materials list for making the booklet with step by step instructions including photos of each page.

And it's time to share what all of the lovely OT ladies have created this month...

Just like a mother...

Just like a mother to be overwhelmed, overworked, underpaid, and under the gun!

Today is not Thursday, so I am a little late in posting this month's teaser for Ornament Thursday's theme: Motherhood.

I will be featuring my project this month on the fine art of Motherhood, and here's a little sneak peek at what you'll be getting:

Just a little teaser until Ornament Thursday on Thursday, April 24th!
