Happy Mother’s Day!
The Twisted Sketches blog is celebrating the achievement of its 100th sketch today, and so the whole design team has done layouts about the concept of “celebration.” I could think of nothing more deserving of celebration today than my mother.
This layout is dedicated to all those little idiosyncrasies that make a loved one even more dear to us. Just a few (I don’t want to make her too uncomfortable when she reads this!) of my mom’s quirks include:
- very animated story telling (see the photos below)
- acting as if she didn’t hear what you said so she can repeat your words back to you, twisted into something funny
- believing it’s wasteful of time to be early to anything
- loving when family members poke fun at her and urging them to do it more
I love you Mom! And I wish we could be together today.
Here is sketch #100, on which my layout was based. But I urge you to go to the Twisted Sketches site to play along this week because there’s a $25 prize up for grabs!
And now are you game for a tiny bit of education about the word “mama?” I found a short article that explains why sounds close to “mama” appear in so many languages (link removed due to site having been hacked) and thought you might enjoy it.
I hope you have a wonderful day!
