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!)
