ok well  mothers day is next week and im freaking out cause i have school and exams and a whole lotta work coming up, so i was thinking that i should make a pair of earrings, and then make like a fancy coupon/gift card type thing that is good for one free(pair of earrings/necklace/ or bracelet-- not sure which one) made by me. and then have a little booklet with a bunch of styles i have brainstormed, and then let her choose what style she wants and what kinds of beads and colors from the selection i have.

so thats what i have decided i am going to do and have the gift card really fancy and stuff.

I think it would be a good idea for anyone really, and if you sew or knit you could have the same kind of idea. maybe have a candle with the gift card and then let your mother choose what fabric or wool color she wants for her purse or which ever item you  choose.

what do you think?

I think that is a really great idea. Sometimes I feel like the handmade things I give my mom arent something she would neccesarily want, so I think this idea is perfect because it allows her to pick out something she'd really like, but it also shows that you've put thought into it by including something already made, so it doesnt look like you just forgot!
Thanks for the great suggestion!

oh yah! i didn't even think that if i just gave the giftcard it would look like I forgot lol. im not sure if im going to give her earrings with the gift card or not because i was thinking i would make the giftcard for a pair of earrings, which she would tell me what style and color she wanted, do you know what i should give the card with??

I think this is a really good idea. I got a handmade jewelry gift recently that was very pretty and I could tell that a lot of work went into it, but I secretly wish it were a different color! I would be able to wear it a lot more if I had been able to pick a color that goes with some of my clothes. GREAT IDEA!

thanks for the comment!
and yah i totally know what you mean! this way they can choose what color they would wear most! and the way i am going to do it is let her choose which design of earring she wants if its hoops, square, or diamond shape, and any other extra beads she wants.
I hope she likes it!
And also it's a great idea if you don't have time to make anything! lol
