mother's day ideas

With Mother's Day on Sunday, you may still be scouring Pinterest and other sources for ideas and inspiration. I thought I would share a little roundup of projects featured on the blog showing what I've gifted for Mother's Day in the past.

  2. Thanks for the cute ideas and links!

  3. Beautiful, Monika!! Your children (and you and your husband!) are so blessed to still have your moms/grandmas in your lives. I wish I had someone to make one of these for this year! Gorgeous inspiration, as always. I really like that iron on quote -- seems like good advice to me ;) -- and love your blond hair! Whoo, mama! LOL! I hope your weekend is blessed with your kids and your moms. ((HUGS!))

    1. Keep an eye out, perhaps I should do a free download of the quote in print format. I wish that I could hug you, too, as you think of your Mom. Thanks for all your good wishes, Kate!

  4. Such great ideas, Monika! Love the iron on quote!! Just perfect. :)
    I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day! & that you get a call from a certain someone. ;)

    1. Oh, I so hope to get a phone call as well, Amee, but will try very hard to not be disappointed when I don't. I mustn't lose hope, day, one day.

  5. Fabulous gifts for Mom! Love the altered tin! :)
