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.

Boring Cash No More!!

Ahhhh! I just learned how to turn money into a really cool work of art!! Seriously, this is really cute and fun too. Foldin' Money can help you turn plain old cash into a really fun crafty gift! It's kind of like paper crafts with a real monetary value. Ha!

Foldin' Money has design kits to help you make the perfect gift for anyone on your list this year. Both US and Canadian currency directions are included in these design kits. For review, we received the "red" kit which has templates and step-by-step directions for a cake, tree, heart, and tie. We found the instructions to be very, very easy to follow. Ladies, I think even your husbands could fold money into the perfect gift! Did that sound rude? Sorry Fellas!

What we found really fun was the endless ways that you could possibly use the Foldin' Money designs. I thought it would be really fun to put one of those little strands of battery operated lights onto the folded money tree! What a fun gift idea and you …

#Halloween Spaghetti & Eyeballs for Sadie Hawkins {The Daily Chaos 10/14/2011}

This post must be written lightening fast because I must leave soon to pick up my daughter from the high school's Sadie Hawkins dance and ferry her and her date to their next destination. How's that for a long, stressful run-on sentence full of far too many prepositional phrases.

We had the distinct pain honor of hosting the dance dinner for 19 teenagers tonight. I don't know about you but I remember Sadie Hawkins as the dance where the guys always said no. Seriously, teenage boys can cut a teenage girl's confidence to shreds. Oh who am I kidding, grown men still do that. So we had dinner in the backyard complete with Halloween lights and a cauldron full of bubbling homemade root beer. My husband loves the homemade root beer and is always the dry ice master chef of the brew. At one point, he came in from outside all dejected because apparently the ladle had fallen into the cauldron and the kids had been trying to fish it out with their hands.... he didn't feel like …
