MIL Ornaments

I am making ornaments for my mother-in-law this year. She gets one for everyone every year and never gets one for herself! Sooo I decided to make up for the past 9 years that I have known her and make one for every year. Here they are:
In 2000 I met my future mother -in-law. I remember the day very well. The first words out of her mouth were, "Want a margarita?" I kid you not! She was smashed!! It was great! So I found a lime and added a beaded hook.
She taught me a game called Casino that her mother-in-law taught her. Apparently it is a rule that the mother always wins. So attach a beaded hook to a card and viola!
The woman takes pictures like there is no tomorrow! She has moved into the digital world now but I remember one of the first Christmas photo sessions that was with a 35mm and guess what ... there was no film in the camera! So a permanent reminder attached to another beaded hook.
The woman is queen and she is not afraid to tell you that she IS the Queen of Quite A Lot. So find a sparkly crown and ornament done!
Oh, did I mention that she is a sore looser? She still likes to poke people with a wooden spoon when she does not win - especially at cards! A wooden spoon it is!
She is the "glue" that keeps so many people's lives together.
She became a Grani in 2006 when my first daughter was born. Peyton picked this ornament out today because "it is Grani's favorite color!"
She became a Rani in 2007 when my second daughter was born. Molly still does not really pronounce the G in Grani. She picked out this ornament today.
This year she is going to spend Christmas with us in our new house. I purchased a plain white ornament today and added some beading to make it sparkle. It is suppose to me a snowball... I plan to get her good this year as she lives in Florida where it does not snow! HA!
I only have one left to make and it is the one that is giving me the hardest time! I will update later when I come up with something.

How about a Claddagh ornie hun.....the heart with the hands either side and a crown on top....and as far as I know the irish use it as a wedding ring (some, not all) but the meaning behind it is why I say to use it...."Let love and friendship reign" so whilst she's your MIL she's also a great friend....incorporates both relationships I reckon.

Those are really great personal ornaments! I have a fabulous MIL too! The color for friendship is yellow. Maybe you could have a yellow heart with MOM on it!
