What a wonderful morning it is! It's going to be a FANTASTIC day!!!
Obviously, the video finally uploaded and it only took about 5 hours! Cool! :) Some of you already have navigated over to YouTube and have seen Mom and I in action! Well, here it is just in case...
The results of the tag are below in the blog post from yesterday....
Thank you all for letting us be movie starts for 15 minutes! You all rock! Thank you Mom for coming and spending time with me and especially for agreeing to play in the studio! I love you!
Y'all keep on having the best day ever!
The Gentleman Crafter
Ha ha I love your Moms expression on the still of this video... She is like "What the frikk is he gonna do with that ??" lol xxReplyDelete
Loved "meeting" MOM!!! I agree with Dyan...Mom's expression on the still of the video is PRECIOUS!!! I was laughing the instant I saw it!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Mom for playing with Jimmy!!!
Aww, you're so cute with your Mom! I lost my Mom two weeks ago, so be sure to visit with her more. Hope we get to see more of her.ReplyDelete
What a hoot! Enjoyed meeting Mom so much. Wish I still had my Mom to craft with. She loved sewing and the arts so much. Thanks for sharing her with us Jim.ReplyDelete
This just made my day! Your mom is precious!!ReplyDelete
Your Mom is adorable. Thank you for inviting us to join your family get together. I still craft with my Mom and love every minute of it.ReplyDelete
Thanks for introducing Mom to us! She's precious! She's also leery of Jimmy and that blow torch! Your a maniac with that thing! LOL love how the tag eventually turned out. :DReplyDelete
I love the video Jim, your Mom is so sweet! She reminds me of my favorite Aunt. Your tag is beautiful, I love how you did the background with the torch. Thanks so much for sharing part of your weekend with us.ReplyDelete
You guys are too cute! And mom was so brave wearing that gorgeous turquoise blouce around you with your gesso and torch...love it!ReplyDelete
Your Mom is so precious! I loved when you asked her "how does it look" and she says Gorgeous!! God Bless her, what a sweetie.
Hi Jim, Love this video of you & your Mom crafting. Good on her for having a go, your blow torch would have had me running ;-) My Mum is due to retire soon & I am hoping this will mean that we will have chance to do some crafting together, just like this. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Thanks for having Mom stop by to say hi to us all.....she looks like a sweetie! And how. Cute when she said she was crafting while you were searching!!!!! Looks like y'all had fun...love the tag....but ummmmmm....isn't there a burn ban??!!!!!!!!!! Oh loved all the glasses hanging on the lampshade......you always have a pair handy!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for letting us share the fun!
Jim, your Mom is a lovely lady. Just adorable. She handled the flame thrower better then I expected. Looks like you had some quality time crafting together and the end results were fabulous. I know you missing her already. My Mom (who is 85), and lives with us now, is still pretty independant. She has her own granny flat and still drives. Don't know for how much longer though. She is experiencing dementia and can be very forgetful these days. She is very physically fit and hard to keep her down. Hard to see them get old, so enjoy your Mom as much as possible while you still can.ReplyDelete
Your mom is adorable! I bet it was great having someone in there to share your craftspace! Love the tags! Do you like to burn all your projects? heehee! In all seriousness..they turned out really well! I'm too scared to play with fire, tho..I'd probably burn down the house!ReplyDelete
What a sweet woman your Mom is! Thanks for sharing. On a different note, I love, love, love the altered box you did for CHA that's highlighted on the Graphic45 blog today. Beautiful!ReplyDelete
Jim so what is the official name of the "flame thrower" and where does one buy such a tool? Just curious....ReplyDelete
Hi Jim, it's been a while since I visited the blogs I follow and I decided to start with yours. What a lovely video! I really enjoyed watching you and your mom crafting in your studio. She seems a lovely, sweet lady! Thank you for sharing this part of your life with us. Greetz DeeReplyDelete
Your Mom is so precious and I love how kind you are to her. The two of you work well together. Love how the tag turned out. Your Mom deserves a big hand for her part in making it. We all know you do a fantastic job crafting but I'll give you a big hand also. lol I look forward to the next video with your mom assisting you in the studio. Have a great week.ReplyDelete
The look of joy on your face at having Mom "crafting" with you filled my heart. What a sweetheart she is! Thanks for sharing her with us. Ok, now about the blow torch . . . Your expressions when the tag was catching fire was priceless! You made my day.ReplyDelete
I just loved your mom - wanted to give her a great big hug!ReplyDelete
BTW, you need to try the duct tape and blow torch method from Craft Wars. It is sooooo you, and I thlought of you instantly when I saw the guy do it. Replays are online if you haven't seen it. (show sux but this was a great technique, lol)
Ok I'm waiting for my debut...Mom you did great! Love the tag Jbo and you too!!ReplyDelete
So sweet to see you and your mom in your studio together! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
your mom is so darn cute enjoy all you can with her. My mom dies three years ago next month wasn't sick and it took me for a hard ride i tell you. She only lived 3 doors down from me so i saw her everyday. Make all the memories you can with her. I bet on her next visit she will bring you a fire extinguisher lol and didn't hear a smoke alarm go off either you might just get one of them also lol. Thanks for sharing your mom tell her dirty hands comes with the deal lolReplyDelete
Jim you and your mom are adorable, and you have the best evil giggle...almost as bad as mine....thanks for sharing your time with your mom with us crafting it looks like you guys had a most fabulous time.ReplyDelete
PS: i am so in love with your craft space and where did you get your ink carousel again...i know you told us on a blog a while back but i cant remember...probably wont be able to buy it up here in the cold frozen north anyways...
well, cheers and i hope you have a wonderful evening.
That was a lot of fun! When she said "Look I'm crafting", I had to chuckle out loud. Love to see you working along side your mom. Your mom is brave, I would be very nervous that close to a torch! Can't wait to see the finished tag!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing, your Mom is awesome. Makes me miss mine even more. My mom and sisters are huge crafters too, only they all live up in NY, 750 miles from me. I get pangs of jealousy when I call and they are all sitting around working on a project together. When I do get to visit and we all get together to craft, we laugh and have a great time too. BTW...great idea with the torch. I need to invest in one of those.ReplyDelete
So cute! Loved your Mom's expressions! Bet you get a fire extinguisher For Christmas!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing your Mom with us!
Loved the video with your Mom! Nothing like the unique relationship between a Mom and her son. (Except maybe a Dad and his daughter:)ReplyDelete
Aww Jim, how adorable the two of you are, that was precious. I like how your mom calls you Jimmy...too cute! TFSReplyDelete
How fun it was to watch you and your mom. Thanks for the vid. Can't wait to see mine in a few weeks for my parents 60th wedding anniversary. Great tag and Love the G45 project that was featured today on their blog. Thanks againReplyDelete
I just have to say how cute you and mom were working together. She kind of reminds me of my mom just sitting and watching what you did with the Big Shot. She looked kind of fascinated with these new fangled thingamabobs! (huge Big Shot by the way... haven't seen one that big). But what I really loved was the evil scientist laugh while burning your tag! Then she joined in with her laugh. So wonderful to see you enjoying each other. Love that you are a mama's boy. :)ReplyDelete
Jimmie! I just love your Mama! You are so blessed to have her join you in your craft room. Ho what I would give to have my Mom here on earth to share my Scrap Loft. I got a little chuckle when she called you Jimmie, My brothers name is also Jim and I am the only one who ever calls him Jimmy! He's my older brother and he's always been Jimmy to me in all my 50 years! Thanks for sharing your video and I hope your mom will join you again. Have a wonderful day and thanks for putting a smile on my face.ReplyDelete
P.S. Glad the smoke alarm didn't go off! hehehe ;)
That's so awesome to have your mom there with you!ReplyDelete
The tags were awesome too!
Fun to see that your mom will still play with you. She's very cute. thanks as always for sharing.ReplyDelete
Looks like you and your Mom were having a great time together, "Jimmie"! I know you meant this as a fun, casual video but I always learn something whenever I watch you craft. I would have never thought of torching something. Now I'm intrigued and will definitely give it a try someday. Give your Mother our best and tell her we (your followers) can't wait to see what she makes next! Laura in BelgiumReplyDelete
PS - How many pairs of glasses do you have??
Jimmy - what a wonderful memory! Your mom is a doll! Does the tag smell burned? Just curious. My Mom just sits and watches while I craft. My Dad thinks that I missed something in Kindergarten since I love to "color" cut and paste as he puts it. Thanks for sharing you Mom with all of us.ReplyDelete
Your Mom is so lovely! I'm glad you had such a good time.ReplyDelete
