DIY Gifts for Mother’s Day

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

I miss my mom a lot, she lives on the outskirts of Las Vegas and I don’t get to see my parents as often as I’d like. I like to create something special for Mother’s Day, even if it’s just a semi DIY craft or project. (Last year I made these photo filled memory jars). I went looking for inspiration and rounded up a bunch of great ideas. Enjoy!

Make homemade linen spray, with printable lavender, garden rose, and jasmine labels.

Things Learned from Motherhood

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

Hi everyone, it’s almost Mother’s Day!  I’ll be spending it with my family and I have a sneaking suspicion it will involve a surprise afternoon picnic in Sonoma… okay, maybe not a surprise, I dropped too many hints that’s how I wanted to spend it.  As long as it’s relaxing and involves some wine and cheese, I’m a happy gal. 

Melissa from 320*Sycamore asked me to share some thoughts on motherhood, so hop on over to visit and read five things I’ve learned from being a mom.   things learned from motherhood

Wishing you all a Happy Mother’s Day!

20 Creative Ideas for Mother’s Day Gifts

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

You all know I love a great DIY project, and for Mother’s Day it’s so nice to take the time to make a Mom feel special with something handmade (or semi handmade).  Here are some ideas I’ve found around the web that I absolutely love and they all make wonderful creative gifts for Mother’s Day.

One of the nicest things you can bring to a Mom is something green and living, right?  Flowers are always lovely, but strawberries are tasty and last longer than a week!  This is a wonderful gift for the mom who loves to garden (or just eat strawberries, hey they’re a low maintenance perennial!).  Be sure to wrap them up in a charming tea towel like these from one of my personal favorite shops, StudioPatro

Is Mom an avid reader? Make her a beautiful bookmark pairing vintage baubles and velvet ribbon so she’ll remember the page (and you!)
