We Heart Moms: Chicki

Bye Bye Birdie Glass and Brass Necklace

Today Tina from Chicki in Saskatchewan shares a special memory of her mother with us:

I have always been very close with my mom. She has always been the one I go to for advice first. Mom always made a point of telling me ever since I was young that I could come to talk to her and I know I can do that. I am very grateful of that and I try to tell my young daughters that as well.

I have many fond memories of mom from when I was young but one thing that I fondly remember is all of the barbie doll clothes she sewed for me by hand when I was a little girl. I loved to play barbies and thanks to mom I had a very cool collection of barbie clothes. Many of the patterns she used were patterns that she had made herself. I had very stylish barbies.

Crafting has always been something that I enjoy very much and I thank my mother for that interest. From a young age, mom taught me how to sew and knit and crochet. I remember crocheting scarves and blankets for my dolls. Mom made all of us scarves almost every winter out of bright yarns. I loved my scarves!

We would also make handmade gifts for loved ones at Christmastime. Mom taught me from a young age the value of handmade and I credit her with my appreciation for all things handmade!

Mom also taught me how to bake and cook. Once I was a little older, I was in charge of baking cookies, or muffins or cakes that we packed in our school lunches. I also had the chance to make supper on occasion, which was a real treat for me. My meal of choice was usually chili. I still enjoy making a good batch of chili!

I love my mom very much and am grateful that she is in my life every single day. She had taught me many skills that I hope will help me to be a successful mother myself. Thanks mom!!
