What is it you want for Mother’s Day?
If you ask my boys, in unison they’ll say “NO FIGHTING!” Yes, I would love a day without the bickering that goes on in the house of four boys but what I really treasure are those gifts that come from their hearts or hands! So for this Mother’s Day I’m giving a picture created by Samuel, my youngest, that was in our Young Master’s Art Show. I know my mom and my mother-in-law will treasure it always!

Color copy I made (the original is framed and hanging in my room!)
I love black frames with a simple matte & outlined in a corresponding color.

I’ve gathered my materials to wrap it up in style. Shiny red paper, lime green tulle, a spring print, and a coordinating stripe.
All Ready to wrap it all up!
I tie the tulle in a Four-Loop bow

Now I layer the other two on top. The spring print is a double loop then I tied the stripe across it for tails.
All done and ready to pack and mail. I’ve added a recent picture of the boys and I with my mom and dad.
Sometimes we try to go over board with the cost of a gift but those that are really treasured is something with a little thought and time. I bought the matte and frame at Hobby Lobby and the ribbon came out of my stash I try to keep on hand. My mom will love this!
Happy Mother’s Day,
