Happy Mother’s Day from Urban Apothecary! Don’t forget to tell your mother how much you love and appreciate her. Celebrate in style and do something extra special to let your mom know how much you care. Often it is the thoughtful, little things that mean the most.

I’ve been busy working with my three year old daughter Brooklyn these past couple of days on a cute craft project to honor my mom, Carol; and something for my mother-in-law, Meri. I’m still working on hers (sorry Meri!). My moms turned out so cute, I just had to share. It’s craft letters that spell MOM (shown is the first M) that I decopaged with scrapbook paper and decorated. I picked my mom’s favorite colors and added lots of bling! I decorated and decorated until nothing else would fit. This is a great inexpensive, but thoughtful gift. It’s one of my all time favorite gifts I’ve given my mom. And as I explained what each element of the design meant, my mom turned all teary eyed- so I know she loved it. Each part of the design has some meaning…

The M features the “World’s Greatest” tag and an embossed MOM and a tag with her birthstone and tied ribbons. On the O I used lots of muti-colored fibers, a bling heart and three metal heart charms (one for each of my daughters) and a “G” which is what all of her grandchildren call her. On the last M, the bottom left has my birthstone and the birthstones and initals of my girls, Brooklyn and Haileigh, then and E for my daughter, Emerson who passed away. Her intial is on the side with a special crystal for every month we shared. I attached a four-leaf clover since one of my girls was born on St. Patrick’s Day. On the bottom right, you can see my sisters birthstone and the initals of her two kids, their birthstones and another four-leaf clover. This one represents my neice who was born at 26 weeks. We are blessed and so very greatful she is healthy and happy. More bling, including some blue to represent my nephew who is the only grandson, and finally a tag that reads “all that i am or hope to be, i owe to my angel mother’. I’m glad it turned out. Now, if only can come up with something for Father’s Day…Ideas anyone?
