Late But Loved....Mother's Day

To say we've been busy would be an understatement.  It's funny because if we are home at least one day out of the week it's considered a slow week.  I'm not complaining. I love my family and the time we spend together. I do have a small confession though...I've been running around like crazy mom that I almost forgot about getting my Mother's Day gift ready at school. It seriously became a last minute gift but I think it turned out precious and hopefully none of the mommas felt as though they were a last minute thought.

 Hobby Lobby had everything I needed.
1) 1X1 mosiac tiles
2) ribbon
3) necklace loop (this is not the official name)
4) Modge Podge
5) strong ceramic glue (to attach the necklace loop)

Considering I was running a little behind I'm happy this project was fast and easy. The kids wrote an "I Love You" message on the back of the tile and then Modge Podged their picture to the front.

I made 1X1 pictures in Microsoft Word.
The problem solving that took place when I asked them to measure 24 inches of ribbon was greatness. They make me giggle.  That was probably the hardest part of the project for them.  They looked at me like I was crazy because the ruler was only 12 inches. Thankfully most of them figured it out and some needed a little guidance but everyone was successful.
I just love adding pictures to things. So we added a picture to our card and it was ready to send home.
I took a sneak peak at some of their messages to mom. They were so thoughtful and sweet and some I didn't really know what to say....

{this one says that their mom is so "awesome" that the other moms brag about her to their husbands}
{this one says "thanks for all the stuff you do and for breastfeeding me, I hope I can repay the favor one day"}

Despite running behind I think they turned out sweet and thoughtful.  Of course if your reading this now you can save this for next year. 

My little Honey Bunny entered a Mother's Day contest at one of our boutiques in town LaRue and won.  WOOHOO! She entered so many times I was afraid they were going to block her from their site.  It just made my heart happy that she wanted it so bad.  
She won!! I cannot believe she won.  We had fun trying to spend all that money. Thank you LaRue!!

I hope all the mommas had a wonderful and relaxing day.
