Mother's Day Gifts

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day! Mine was spent at church with lots of moms that I love, including of course my own!

I made 6 Mother's Day gifts this year - for my mom, Nick's stepmom and grandmother, my sisters-in-law Rachael and Leah, and my good friend Melissa. I have something for my sister-in-law Kristin too, but she's in Texas, so I have to ship it to her.

For my mom, my mother-in-law, and Nick's grandmother I tried my hand at painted Mason Jar vases. I just primed them, painted them with acrylic paints, sealed with a matte sealer, then added polka dot accents with metallic Sharpies. And I didn't get a good picture after this, but I also added twine around the neck of the gold and copper accented ones, and a silver ribbon around the neck of the silver accented one. We didn't get a chance to see Nick's grandmother yesterday, but she doesn't have a computer, so I don't think I'm spoiling anything for her by posting here.




I got my SIL Rachael a set of Babyville pliers and snaps a few months ago as a baby/Mother's Day gift and gave them to her early so that she could make some stuff for her baby girl before she had her. But I didn't want her to be empty handed today, so I gave her some remnants of vintage lace.


I made Leah an infinity scarf from this cool knit and lace fabric I got at Hobby Lobby.


And I gave Melissa one of the boxy makeup bags like I made for my daughter's crafty birthday sleepover. Inside (not pictured) I put a leather bow hair clip and a satin rosette necklace.


I'm so grateful for all the sweet moms in my life!
