Since becoming a mom, and this year being my first Mother’s Day to celebrate, its become a different holiday to me. I realized that certainly takes a lot to be a parent, and I havn’t even been at it for 4 months yet. I also realized that it been the best experience. I have always been grateful for my parents, but I am especially grateful in a new way.
So this year I wanted to give my mom something I really thought was special. I saw the tutorial from Dana’s Amazing blog, MADE. I read her blog daily. Its an inspirational jumping-off point for journal writing. You pull out a prompt, and write about whatever comes to your mind.
*I found the jar for $1.00 at the Salvation Army
*I made the flower on top with scraps of card stock and E6000, which is the best glue!
*The scraps inside are a mix of suggestions from the tutorial and ideas I had.
*The notebook was $2.00
Total project cost varies : about $3 – $10 (if you don’t have any of the supplies)
I’m excited to see what she comes up with.
