I don't know what it is about Mother's Day that makes me feel like I need to do arts and crafts, but every year I end up coming up with some tremendous (read: idiotic) idea for some project I think I can do, and buying all the stuff, then procrastinating until midnight on the Wednesday before Mother's Day (gotta have time to ship 'em), staying up half the night and making gifts for the four (4) moms in our lives.
I was up until 2:30 am, but I am really, really happy with the way they turned out. Of course, I can't tell you what they are because the Grandmas read this blog, but I'll post pictures on Monday. I will also be giving away one personalized, customized one of the things that I made for the Grandmas to one of my beloved winners, so be sure to come back Monday to enter!!
