Something Pretty For Mom

Mother's Day is right around the corner. . . What are you giving your mom to show your love and appreciation?

Here is a great (and totally simple) idea that I think any mom will love.

This particular gift is going to my sister, so the pictures are of my totally adorable niece.

I bought some white wooden letters, an M and an O and took pictures of the beauty queen holding the letters.
Isn't she just a doll?!

I turned the pics black and white so the letter would stand out more. I even tried editing it to change the color of the letter.

I decided I liked the white letter better. I chose my favorite pictures, chose a frame with three openings, and here is the final product.
I think my sis will love it. What mom doesn't love cute pics of their babies?!

The great thing about his gift is that it can be personalized for anyone, and any occasion. Just change the letters. You could spell out your last name, or really just anything. I'm also making some with six pictures that will spell "MOTHER" and "FATHER". These aren't ready yet cuz I haven't found the right frames yet.

I love the pictures with the MOM letters, don't forget I would love 1 too. If you did all my "grands" you'd need a really big frame.

Hi! Love your site! Just wanted to let you know that I featured you on my DIY Mother’s Day gift post.

I host a MckLinky party called Tot Tuesdays every week where people come link up their recipes, crafts and activities for their toddlers. I am also hosting Yummy Mummy Week which starts this Sunday. I hope you will join me for 8 days of featured mom bloggers sharing inspiration and tips on motherhood as well as 8 giveaways which are perfect gifts for mom. There will also be a Blog Hop where moms can share their stories, photos and “mommyfessions” about motherhood and how their bodies have changed. I’d love it if you would come stop by!

Cheers,
Jenn
