::operation handmade....success::

just a little peak at the gifts we made for the mamas.

fabric flowers ::
you can find the tutorial here. and the awesome thing about these flowers is....they live forever as a sweet reminder of this special day.

encouragement jar::
it's a cute little jar (actually a ragu jar) full of little notes written on recycled paper. the notes consist of sweet memories we shared with our moms, things we are grateful for and quotes of encouragment. they are to read one a day. but my mother-in-law cheated....she read 3 yesterday...and that's okay:)

hope you all had a lovely mothers day full of snuggles and kisses and all the goodness that motherhood brings!


  1. What a sweet gift. These are so beautiful!
    And I am refusing to read the below post. I need no temptation of making these b/c I know I would eat the WHOLE batch.

  2. how awesome! love these little gift ideas :) i will have to try the encouragement jar sometime! hope you had a blessed mother's day!

  3. Beautiful! I love this idea! Thanks for sharing it. Hope you had a great weekend!
