I made my special object with my mum at a mother and daughter fundraising afternoon at school in 2007. It is made from wood, textured art paper and lots of love. On this unique Christmas canvas it has a beautiful heart shape made of all different sizes of rich red buttons and it has the letter ‘C’ that stands for Cynthia. It also has a soft, silky ribbon with a tied bow, a wavy red textured string, a flower representing that every day is a new fresh day and a picture of my mum and I that we update every year representing the love that we share every day.
