Creatively Made Mother's Day

Now I'm not naming names, or pointing fingers, but there was a Mother's Day not too long ago where a certain husband worked all day and did not get a gift for the mother of his children. Did I mention those 3 children were all born in 4 years time and that she had been changing diapers for 7 years straight? All I have to say is that it is a good thing he is such a nice guy and a good dad, not that I know him or anything like that.

But I've decided that there is nothing wrong with celebrating yourself as a mother. If that means buying yourself a gift in appreciation of all you do for your family, then go for it! Is there anyone more deserving of a gift then a mother? I think mother's should be able to buy themselves a gift on a daily basis.

So in that spirit I thought I would post a few gift ideas that you can either make for yourself or for another mother in your life.

I just made this necklace for a new mom to be who is having a baby girl. She is due in a week and I can't wait to give this to her! Hopefully she isn't reading this, but if she is, SURPRISE! Hope you like your gift! LOL. I'm really bad at keeping secrets.

This necklace is from our Stamped Jewelry Class. You can create necklaces, bracelets, key chains, etc. The options are endless. You can either add the names of your children or words of inspiration. Use your imagination to create something special. Add on a charm or birthstone dangle and you have the perfect gift!

If you want to make yourself or another mom feel fabulous, then you can always give her a little bling. These crystal flip flops are the hit of the season. This party is so much fun. And who doesn't love to wear a little bling?! Add a little or a lot. It is up to you.

The best part of both of these classes is how good you feel when you are finished. You can let your creativity flow while burning off some stress. In the end you will have a gift for yourself or for someone special.
