This picture is made of: garlic peel, poinsettia, Japanese maple, poppy seed, bark, corn silk, bean strings, cotton and I'm not sure what her dress and bonnet are made of.

My Mom Allows Me To...
Use her baking soda to boil magnolia leaves to skeletonize them
Fill the house with explosions of cattail fuzzies when a picture needs a little snow
Use her cutting board when I need to slice open daffodil flowers
Fill her refrigerator with flowers that I haven't gotten around to pressing yet
Take two rooms to use as pressing studios
Use her toaster oven to activate my desiccant board
My mom has listened to me practice the same talks over and over again for various programs and been a constant encouragement and motivation with my art work. The list goes on and on. Lately Mom has pressed dozens of butter cups for me. Thank you Mom!
