One of My Birthday Gifts

Wayyyyy back in January, I posted about how my children were diligently creating birthday gifts for me.  At the time, I didn't have camera batteries to take any pictures of what they made.  But now I have some and wanted to show you their lovely creations. I think I shall only be able to post about one tonight.

This is a box made of paper from my 9 year old.  She read the instructions in a craft book we have, then measured, decorated, cut out, and put it together all by herself.

Precious little drawings...

A sunflower, a rose, a butterfly...

A busy bee...

A daughter's love...

This paper is attached on the inside of the paper box and folds out so I can read her message:

The other day her flower broke that goes on one of her dresses...She asked to keep it for her and I in the box she made me.  And here it is...

Thank you, my sweet Cherished of God.  God has truly blessed me with you.

I hope to share with you more of the treasures I received from our precious children soon.

  4. Thank you, ladies. They are such blessings.

  5. So precious... what a blessing. :)

  6. What a sweet story Mrs. Q! It reminded me of something my own mother did. When I was a little girl I had a stuffed kitty that I carried everywhere with me for years. If fact I still have her tucked in my treasure box. The kitty's much loved, pink nose was always falling off and Mom was always sewing it back on. Years past and I grew and kitty was lovingly tucked away. After my mom passed away, I was going through her jewelry box, I opened a little black velvet ring box...and there was kitty's nose, safe and sound! It touched my heart so much and I will always be thankful my dear little mother saved it all those years. Delisa :)

  7. That is so very sweet!! I just loved reading about that. Your daughter is quite a budding little artist, I must say! :)

  8. How precious and what a good job!! Such a sweet, thoughtful gift that was obviously worked very hard on!! Now that you have it in pictures and blogged - no matter what - you'll always be able to look back at it, see it and smile because of the love it was created with.
    Blessings, Cass

  9. Mrs. Q,

    What a special treasure your daughter has made for you!

    She did a very good job of designing that box for her Mommy. :) I like the fact that she wanted you to save the little flower from her dress. I think that's too sweet.

    Thank you for sharing these pictures with us, Mrs. Q!
