Since I am a terrible daughter, I just sent my mom her Mother’s Day gift last Friday.
I mean, I CALLED her on Mother’s Day. What else can a sweet, loving woman who worked hard to raise three kids to be productive, grateful, thoughtful, non-selfish members of society (all while getting a Master’s degree) expect?
Apparently, not much.
All of my horrible neglect aside, I’ve known for quite a while what I wanted to make for her: A Teacher’s Survival Kit.
I filled it with some things she likes and attached little handmade tags explaining how each item will help her. Luckily she’s got one week left of school so I hope she can put this stuff to good use.
Here are some photos of the little kit I made for my mom (clicking the pic makes it bigger!):
One of my favorite things were the ‘STOP TALKING’ business cards that I made. Unfortunately, I didn’t think up the idea on my own. I know, total sadface. In fact, I found them at Paper Source (you can see them here), but I thought it was ridiculous to pay $10 for 25 cards (see, my mama raised me right). So I made them myself.
I changed the font and packaging because I wanted to do something a little different, but they’re printed on heavy cardstock so they’re really sturdy. They were a lot of fun to make so, if anyone wants cards with some kind of command on them, I’ll gladly sell you 30 for $5. Just got to my contact page and shoot me a message.
Heck, shoot me a message just because. I love to hear from people.
