Celebrating Mothering Sunday in the UK

On Sunday, mums across the United Kingdom will be celebrated for Mothering Sunday. Originally a Christian holiday falling on the fourth Sunday in Lent, the day allowed those in service to visit their “mother” church and see their families. Mothers received wild spring flowers and handmade cards, and they traditionally baked home-baked simnel cake. The day has become a general tribute to motherhood similar to the American Mother’s Day, and still involves giving flowers, cards and gifts to mothers.

"I have three beautiful daughters and they appear frequently in my gallery mainly because I predominately use Instagram as a photographic memory log of our life," says UK Instagrammer, midwife and mum Sharon Cudworth (@poppyseedhouse) from Suffolk. “Instagram has allowed me to venture into the lives of other mothers across the world. I share daily captures of my children that other women have related to: moments of joy, laughter, fun and even despair, and this has been reciprocated too.

"Mothering Sunday is such an important day for me. It is a day where I think of my own mother a lot as she sadly died when I was a child. I missed out on that mother- daughter relationship growing up and therefore dreamed of having a daughter one day. How amazing that I now have three? My husband is usually up early, preparing us all breakfast. My girls usually make their cards. They know I much prefer handmade things, especially by them. They also spoil me with beautiful fresh flowers too."

Heather Hansen is a fine artist based in New Orleans, and Paris. Her kinetic drawings are part dance, part performance art using her body as a drawing tool and ending up as large scale pieces in charcoal or pastels.

Heather describes her work by saying, “Emptied Gestures is an experiment in kinetic drawing. In this series I am exploring ways to download my movement directly onto paper, emptying gestures from one form to another. I will usually decide on a general shape and then improvise within a set of self imposed restrictions. I always have some kind of dogma to play with. First of all I’m limited to one plane (so far) but in a way it’s very useful because I am able to find more freedom by having some constraints.”

Soooo coollll!!!!!!
