It is the first Monday of the Month and the Designer Crafts Connection is a hopping! The theme for this month is Mother's Day. One of our members is in the hospital and this month's project is dedicated to two designers Lisa Rojas and Veronica (Ronnie) Goff. They are always smiling, talented women with a big hearts, mothers, friends and two of the most wonderful warm people you will ever meet! Here's to you lovely ladies and to your speedy recovery!

My project for Mother's Day was inspired by a giftbox I received for Easter. I created a "Love Bug" gift jar for Mom which could be filled with any of "Mom's" special treats from candies to love notes.

I used one of my very favorite techniques needle felting with Wool Wisps from National Nonwovens and STYROFOAM brand foam to create the bug head.

Recycling a jar and left over pieces of scrapbook papers to decorate it with.

Ribbons, buttons, ricrac and flowers complete the "Love Bug!" Sending lots of love your way Lisa and Ronnie! Don't forget to check out the forty plus talented designers in the connection, just click on the button in the right sidebar! Happy Hopping!  Debra, CEO!
