Has it really been ten years?

Yesterday, was my grams' birthday. And I remembered, all those years I spent at the table hand drawing the perfect flower to put on my grandma's birthday card. Or, me and little Corey raiding the closet for gadgets, scraps of fabric, anything we could use to make the newest birthday creation. Our imagination was limitless...and I think that was because our love was limitless. We LOVED grandma, mom, and our whole family sooooo much, that the best way we could exemplify that would be to create something cool for that person. 

I can't believe it has been 10 years since I've created something for you grandma! 

Memory #1: I remember cleaning out the bottom of the cabinet and finding a little wardrobe made out of brown paint, cardboard, and beads. The doors were hot glued on and , it opened to reveal a red interior with little golden swirls and dots to look Asian (my grams' loved Asian stuff and would scour the thrift stores to fill our apt with Asian crap) and it had school pictures of  little Corey, Cody and myself. With the inscription "we love you grandma" 

I can't believe it's been ten years. Thank you for always making my birthdays great grandma! I think today, I shall make this painting in your memory, cus afterall, it was your birthday yesterday. So, this is for you grandma :) love your Gallywag
