A handmade gift is the best

The best kind of gift is handmade- especially on Mother’s Day. I love watching the faces of my little people light up as they pass packages from behind their backs and tell me about what they’ve worked so hard to make- it’s truly one of the best moments of motherhood. This Mother’s Day was fantastic- full of handmade goodness, thoughtfulness, hugs and kisses.

A sassy hand-forged and personalized Mother’s Day autograph gift from my sis whose opinions and affiliations on most topics could not differ radically from my own, (did we grow up in the same house?) luckily, we do agree that sarcasm is king. Mitt makes the refrigerator- thanks girl, I love ya!
