OH NO Mother's Day is coming !

So Mother's Day is almost here. I say this with a certain tenseness in my voice. Not because I have a very bad no good mom (haha), I have a great mom really. It's because I have NO idea what to get her anymore. I think she probably has everything and I can't even figure out what she likes anymore. I've given her so much jewelry, body products, clothing, books, altered scrapbooking gifts, gift albums, home decor, gardening knick knacks, etc. etc. that I am left blank. One year my kids and I popped over early in the morning on Mother's Day and delivered a basket of fresh bagels, cream cheese, jams and juices and she always says that was her favorite gift. However, I now live 45 minutes away from her and it's not that easy to just jet over anymore. So with all this in mind I went on an internet search and came up with these unique, if not totally hilarious, options....

From comes these interesting gift ideas:
Ok, she might be offended by the racing grannies. ;)

From we have a fun and educational (?) gift that will keep mom hip and funky cool:

The last silly gift idea comes from - duct tape roses. Hmmmm I wonder if someone on Etsy makes these !? They are actually kind of cool !

And finally, no post on humor and mothers would be complete with the incredibly funny "you're grounded until you're 36" video. I laugh hysterically every time I watch it.

I have the same problem with my mother, and my kids never know what to get me either - I think it's a mom thing. Love the faucet light!

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event.  There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding. To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store. Essential Supplies: Waterproof Material (vinyl tablecloth, or other store-bought vinyl or

Love Heart Wood Project

Today I have a really easy project to create. It would be a great last-minute Christmas gift. Wood heart ! To begin, simply trace your heart onto a sheet of patterned paper. You could also use another shape or even a plain wood block. Cut the heart out of paper and set aside. Next, you will want to paint your wood heart in a neutral color or coordinating color to your patterned paper. Once the paint is dry, glue the paper to the wood using Mod Podge or craft glue spread very thin. If your glue is too thick, bubbles in the paper will occur. Let dry, pushing out any buckles that the paper gets. Cover the project with a thin layer of Mod Podge if desired. Now it's time for the fun part! Use your imagination to add ribbons, die cuts, brads, flowers, charms, any embellishment. I have even used the bling from an old broken necklace. The sky is the limit! Depending on the project I am creating, sometimes I decoupage (Mod Podge) the painted and papered wood and don't decoup
