My mother, Jean Krause of Auburn, CA celebrated her 81st birthday on August 15th and she was so happy that her husband, children and grand-children were all there to celebrate with her, as well as several of their spouses and significant others.
My sister Karla brought these beautiful flowers,
and when I saw this amazing Beehive cake at the bakery, I couldn’t resist bringing it along as the celebratory dessert!
And if you’re like me, what would a birthday be without a handstamped card? Here is the one I made for my mother; inside the stamped sentiment states: A little bird told me that it was your birthday.
These lovely pen and ink drawing cards were made for our mother by Karla.
Our mom had a wonderful day; nothing elaborate or expensive; just some handcrafted gifts, flowers, candy and a cake. But the best present of all was the gift of being surrounded by family on her special day!
