Mother’s Day Gift Ideas #BloggerFavThings

Monday, April 28th, 2014

Hello everyone, welcome to another week! I spent the weekend sprucing up an outdoor space at our house and I’ll have more pictures of it later this week. Today I wanted to share a really fun experience among blog friends that originated with Jennifer of Rambling Renovators and Stefanie of Brooklyn Limestone

The two came up with this idea to get a group together to exchange a few favorite things and mail them to each other in anticipation of Mother’s Day and as a feel good way to embrace our community of fellow bloggers. The gift giver was kept a secret until the package arrived, which they all did a few weeks ago, it was a lot of fun!

A group of companies was involved and sent a few more things our way, and it was such a delight to receive treats from them too. A big thank you to the following brands and companies for all the gifts:  Wrist Soiree, The New York Times Store; The Company Store; Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.; Home Decorators; Minted; and Delta Faucets.

Nicole of Making it Lovely was my giftee, so I sent her some of my favorite things including a Kate Spade pencil case, personalized pencils, some Chocolove (the sea salt + dark chocolate + almonds is TDF) and my favorite skin primer (takes five years off!)

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.

Upload Instagram images and make a book for a special Mom to treasure.
