With Mother's Day coming up, and the end of school on the horizon, gifts for mom and teacher gifts are definitely on the mind. I've got a really fun solution for you--for both of them! More than ten years ago, we made my mom personalized notepaper for Mother's Day. It was a huge hit, and from that point on, it has been highly requested time and time again. It is one of my favorite gifts to give for so many occasions and people--it makes an awesome teacher gift and it's perfect for Mother's Day, Father's Day, birthdays, and even wedding and hostess gifts. My sister served as a missionary for our church several years ago, and we made a set for her for one of her birthdays while she was gone. It's just so fun to make and give!

My husband has gotten the same thing for Father's Day for as long as I can remember. And you know what? He LOVES it. It's his favorite thing, and he asks for it every. single. year. What is it, you ask? A Home Depot Gift Card!!! To him, it's like giving him the world. So many tools, not enough time. ☺ I like to pair a gift card with something fun, and because drill or router bits are always in high demand at our house, this year I packaged his gift card up with a set of drill bits and his favorite Reese's candy inside a cute pail.
Last year I made Father's Day printable for a measuring tape gift for the dads at our church, and it was HUGE hit! and since it had the date on it, I went ahead and updated it for this year! Whether you are giving to one dad or lots of dads, this is such a fun gift!
Y'all know how much I love personalizing anything and everything, and what could be better than a darling key chain? (I sound so Texan with that "y'all", don't I? ☺ ) As soon as I saw the new chipboard by Silhouette, I knew it would be the perfect way to make one!
At my church, I get to work with the Primary children (kids aged 3-11), and I LOVE it. Mother's Day is just a few short weeks away, and this week I designed a super fun card that I think all their moms are going to love! I wanted to make a card where they could each express some favorite things about their mom. I was talking to one of my best friends this week, and she reminded me of an idea that I have actually loved for a long time...in fact, my oldest son wrote a card like it for me when he was in preschool, and it's one of my most treasured possessions. Asking a child questions about their mom--some funny, others serious--and putting it all together in a cute package was just what I was looking for! .
One of my best friends in all the world had a birthday this week. And not just any birthday...the big 30!!!! I left her 6 months ago when we moved to Texas, and I was SO sad that I was going to miss this milestone. I knew I wanted to send her something to really celebrate this particular birthday, and let her know how special she is to me. So...I made her a birthday jar!
This was first posted a couple of years ago, but I thought it was time to bring it out of the archives for this Mother's Day! Anything with handprints is always a favorite for me. :)
Sometimes it seems like the years past faster than the days do, and capturing little handprints are like freezing a moment in time. When my oldest was small, I made an apron with his handprint on it for my dad for Father's Day. I still LOVE seeing his tiny little hand on that apron. ♥ This year it was grandmas' turn... I love how these Handprint Aprons turned out!
