ACW Episode 113 – Happy Mother’s Day!

Yep, I am definitely liking the look of the cartoons drawn with InkPad. They’re clean (art-wise, not content-wise) and colorful (art and content-wise).

This actually happened this past week. A couple months ago, my sister told me she was putting together a family history for my mom for Mother’s Day. The finished product was more like 200 pages long, with a couple hundred photos and scanned documents inside it, but still, damned impressive. I contributed a bit by sending her pictures of my kids to include in the book, but that was about it. Then right before Mother’s Day, she showed me the book and I was overwhelmed by what she’d made. And I felt kind of stupid because I still hadn’t gotten Mom a present yet.

I did get her a present though, and I did get it ON TIME. No belated Mother’s Day gifts from me this year! I took pictures of the kids dressed up as superheroes and had one blown up and framed. And yes, I did point out that I did make my mom grandchildren. But I did not wrap them in gift-wrap and hand them to her.

My sister is a very hard-working, talented person who constantly amazes me, by the way. She’s currently pursuing an advanced degree in physical therapy and she works as a physical therapist at a preschool for children with special needs. I have no idea how she does all that she does. I can only say that for those of you who accuse me of being over-achieving, you ain’t seen nothing until you’ve met my younger sis!

I hope everyone had a happy Mother’s Day!

  1. Ha!

    Happy Belated Mother’s day, Helen.

  2. Oh, Helen….I know all about being the “other” creative sister. I love my sister to death, even if she’s the crafty sister that makes amazing homemade gifts and I’m the writing sister that offers up witty passages inside cards…

    The great thing about my mom? She gets it…

    Happy Belated Mother’s Day!
