It came as no surprise that, for Mother’s Day, I was gifted with some creepy crawlies. Insects are prized possessions in the world of my kids so, of course, they would be great gifts to others. They caught three caterpillars at their friend’s house and were quite excited to present these creepy crawlies to me. As far as bugs go, I was happy to receive caterpillars instead of mole crickets or preying mantis or giant snails!
Nathan also made these candle holders with electric candles. I saw similar candle holders, made from wood, in the States just before we left for PNG. While I really liked them, luggage space was an issue, so we left the craft fair without them. I was quite surprised when Nathan presented me the bamboo versions. I enjoy their beauty as they flicker in the evenings. A matching bamboo vase came with them. I will fill it with the felt flowers I love to craft.
