We are working on variation of our night sky print -- a framed 8 x 10 version with an 'easel' back so it can be placed on a table or desk.
The moon and stars are such a beautiful context for saying things that need to be said, important things, for example... to a new child ('Welcome to the spinning world!) or a new love (Unforgettable, that's what you are...) or to your dear Mom on Mother's Day (You are the best.)
What would you say? One friend of ours had us do a night sky print for her mom with the message 'I love you to the moon and back!' It's something they still say to one another, mother and daughter, a favorite line from a favorite read-aloud book from childhood. She decided to show the sky on the night her Mom was born. Very cool.
Another has recently placed an order for a new Mom, showing the birth sky of her new daughter. It simply had the child's name. She had us enclose a very thoughtful gift card, too, a quote, "The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new." ~Rajneesh
Let us know what you would say to your mom in a follow-up comment below, or on our Facebook page, (or by email if you're shy or your Mom follows you on Facebook, ha!) and we just might send along one of our new 8 x 10 desktop prints.
We have five (5) to give away over the next two weeks. This could easily be you (and your Mom), please share you thoughts!
By the way, the headline is a quote from George Eliot, the victorian playwright — I believe it's the opening line to her biography.
