It will be up to you and your partner about framing.

44   / OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Featured Projects: Mother's Day on: May 03, 2014 10:42:51 AM
Moms...they do so much for us and ask for such little in return. They take care of our needs, love us unconditionally and embarrass us by doing the chicken dance in front of our friends (what? is that just me?).

Jamian gave her mother this beautiful retouched photo of her grandmother. I absolutely love the added details. She has turned this black and white picture into an heirloom. See the original print HERE.

MareMare made these adorable fabric baskets for her mom. This is a such a great idea! As an extra bonus, MareMare created a tutorial for these darling gifts. Check out the tutorial HERE.

April showers bring May flowers and May flowers bring happiness to your mom's face. Seleniebeanie's clever way to bring her mother flowers has me smiling. It is so smart to take an umbrella, dress it up and then place the flowers in the umbrella. Now your mom has beautiful flowers to look at and a way to keep her dry. It's a win-win situation. You can read more about the craft HERE.

These are just a few ideas that our amazing Craftster peeps have made for their moms. Check out the Mother's Day board for inspiration.

Another hoop I did for the Fairy Tale Swap. The original pattern had a quote from the story in it but I really didn't like the way it looked so I left it out.

This piece started out as a hoop and by itself. I decided to frame it and alter the frame with washi tape. This is one of a three part series. I am almost finish with the other two pieces. I am fixing up my house for the summer into a beach house and this will go perfectly in the living room.
