It is always hard to find something for my mom! She doesn't really have a lot of hobbies, doesn't need any clothes, I gave flowers one year and that was a disaster (snail incident) and she's across the country so I can't take her out for lunch. I knit but she's not one for shawls and it's too warm in CA for hats, gloves etc. I think everyone on here thinks their mom is difficult. Somehow I always manage to find something... plus this year we are going on vacation so I will actually be with her for Mother's Day... I can't show up empty handed! So here we go...
1. First off, my family takes lots of vacas and I have all the pictures which I hold hostage basically until the next trip. I decided this year to make a photobook of all the pictures from last year's trip! I don't have a pic of this because I did it online but I recommend this for all mom's!
2. Every since the live flower/snail incident, I've stuck with the fake flowers (they last longer
). This year I did some felted ones.
It is a pattern from PickUpSticks that i got at a LYS.
3. My mom is completely infatuated with Josh Groban ever since seeing him in concert. She has all the CDs/DVDs so I thought she'd get a kick out of this t-shirt I stenciled!
T-shirt on the left, stencil on the right. I doubt she'll wear it to the mall but maybe as a bed shirt. (ps thanks to all the craftster tutes on stenciling!)
Ok so that's it... more info on the blogs below. I hope this inspires someone to make something for their mom!
