Many years ago, I purchased a little kit for my mom which included everything you needed to make this cute Poinsettia wreath out of ribbon.

Well, my mom loves flowers and ribbon so I thought she’d have fun making it.  She loved it, but had no time to make it. It stayed on her craft shelf for years and I’m sure she had forgotten about it.

Just after Thanksgiving, I picked it up while she wasn’t home because I thought it would be fun to surprise her and make it for her so she could finally enjoy it.

Connor was fascinated by how I took ribbon, cut it just so, and made it into flowers and then into a wreath. He thought it was very beautiful!!

When I told him it was for Grandma, he started crying asking couldn’t we please keep it. I explained to him that it was already really Grandma’s, so no, that wouldn’t be right. We compromised by letting it hang in the house for a couple of days before we’d deliver it to Grandma.

Well, my mom loved it, but when she heard about how much Connor wanted it, she immediately gave it to him. It made him so happy and of course that made her happy too which made me happy too!! . . . It’s funny how happiness comes in unexpected ways.
