Make Mom's day special without breaking the bank!

We like to pay tribute to our moms for all the things they have done for us, but sometimes our budgets limit what we can do.  What do you do when there's no money in the bank?  Show her how much you care with something hand made.  But don't be mislead.   Handmade items can get very pricey too!  If you decided to make something that you have none of the supplies for, you could end up spending more than you intended.  It's important to look around at what you have and design your gift around that.  I've listed some ideas to get you started... 1.  A photo album with pictures she hasn't seen!          Don't have an album laying around?  Pictures are all digital and in the computer? Using a computer       program like Word or Openoffice, spend a little time laying out a few pictures per page and add       some journal entries and  some fun clip art and you have a nice photo album for mom.  The front and       back covers can be made with some card stock,

May Day and May Crowning

With the end of April, comes the beginning of May!  But with winter hanging on longer than we wanted it to, flowers are just now starting to make their way up from the protection of the ground.  So how do we make the beginning of May special with May Day flowers and the May Crowning?  With paper!  Paper flowers will hold their shape and color much longer and don't need any water!  And you can make them any color you want!  These lovely paper roses would make a great gift for teachers and for the May crowning!  Just $1.00 each in a variety of colors!  It's the perfect solution!  Order yours today!
