I googled "May Day", just to see the background of it. If your interested, check this out, I thought it was fun to read May Day Customs
I have to share this May Day story with you... When the boys were little , one year... (I think Jarad was about 3 or 4), we did our May baskets around the neighborhood and then headed over to Grandma to take hers. I stayed in the car and the boys went to the door. Both of them get up to the door and Wes rings the door bell, and takes off running for the car...but Jarad just stands there with his. ??? I say... " Put it down and RUN Jarad... Grandma will run after you and kiss you!!!" , he turned and looked at me , with his sweet face ,and said, "I know, I want her too!"
Ok.. so here's my May basket for today. It's an altered metal container. I used Crafty Secrets Papers, stamps and Cotton images. I wish you could see the products better, they are so pretty. You can click on the top one to see it larger I think.
Some stitching , some inking,and lots of gluing. lol I wanted you to see some of the other pretty papers from the Paper Pad, so I just rolled them and stuck them inside.
I was kind of nostalgic today, thinking about when the boys were little , all the fun things we used to do, like May day. I looked through the good ole family photo box and found this pic of my baby boys. The time just goes by so fast, it's hard for me to believe they are 24 and 21.
