As a mom, I have had the pleasure and honor of receiving many gifts that were store bought. Yet, the most priceless gifts I’ve ever been given were the ones that were made from the heart – homemade. These are the gifts I will tuck away and cherish when my house is empty of their laughter and their presence.
So here’s a few easy, inexpensive ideas that may help add to your mom’s treasure chest of memories:
Easy Crochet Jewelry
Find a small stone from your childhood or one that has significance such as quartz where many believe there are fields of energy associated with it. Follow the directions from Scribd for crocheting around a stone and make a necklace like the one pictured above. Other crochet necklaces and projects can be found at Instructables.
Memories From Your Perspective
Sometimes we look back at events and see them in a different perspective than our parents. What might have been significant for them might not be for you and vice versa. Take the time to make your own scrapbook from your perspective and give it to your mom. Let her know what memories you cherish by following Home and Garden TV’s simple how-to directions, or send your files to a local pharmacy that can often make a book within 24 hours, or try sites like Snapfish or Smilebox. Which ever way you do it, mom will surely be pleased.
