Motherhood in 55 words.

Thank you to everyone for all your wonderful comments on motherhood. I took your comments and added some more and made this Illuminating Motherhood Tree. I hope you gain strength from your comments and the comments made by the other mothers about being a mom. It's great to see so many like women. I wish I could give a hat to everyone, but am going to have to settle for just one lucky mom and daughter! I hope to open a little Etsy shop soon - but maybe after the holidays! I am driving to NY with the girls this morning (they have really bad coughs and Craig isn't back from his trip yet) to see the water damage from pipes freezing. The huge storm here caught us off guard and we didn't prepare as we should for the winter! Yikes!

I will be announcing the winner of the matching hats on Friday morning along with next week's giveaway announcement. Thanks again for entering!

What do you think of the tree?
Do you agree on the words?
Any spelling errors?!Did I count right?Any repeats?
Any words you would like to add?

I love the tree! I'm going to print it for myself :) You are so creative, Michelle.

By the way, I thought of you today as I ate two fries at a time. Heehee!

That would look so great on the front of an encouraging card to a friend. Hope you don't mind if I steal it too.

Michelle, this tree is wonderful!!! I would love to print it, but want to ask you if that is ok first? I totally think you should open a Etsy shop. I will be your first customer! :) Be safe drivng to check out the cabin today. :)

LOVE it!! What a great way to showcase the words. I enjoyed reading all the comments, but I could never pick just one--mommyhood incompases so many--so I could never decide.

When I left my long 'Mary Poppins' word, I used caps to spell out PRECIOUS...(I should have explained that...)

Motherhood is precious!

Your tree is beautiful!

Mandy said...

what a great idea! Seriously you are so clever!

jenny said...

Wonderful idea. I think other comments are so helpful especially when I am needing advice or have a terrible day.

You totally should open up an Esty shop! Have a safe trip--frozen pipes are never fun.

I really love what you did with the tree. That is so creative. You will do really well with your shop because you can come up with so many great things and you are so darn good at it!
