Happy Mother's Day....

Happy Mother's Day to all the ladies that have been blessed with children and to all the ladies that have the dream of having a baby! On this Mother's Day I am happy and grateful that I had the privilege of having my daughters! I think back and I am filled with many wonderful memories as I sit back and watch as my oldest daughter is now creating special memories with my Grandson! The memories are what Mother's Day is all about. So this Mother's Day I did a craft project with my Grandson that is sure to remind his Mommy on a daily basis of the day we spent at the beach!

After spending the day at the beach and collecting some really beautiful shells, I was instantly struck with the idea of giving my daughter a special picture and frame for Mother's Day! To prepare the shells, I soaked them for a half day in a weak bleach and water solution, rinsed them, then let them dry in the hot Florida sun! I stopped at our local discount and picked up an inexpensive plastic frame ($3.00)because I couldn't find a decent priced wood one. I wasn't by the dollar store because I would have stopped there! lol I positioned the main shells and my Grandson pointed where he wanted others and pressed them into place. I think it came out beautifully and it will certainly remind my daughter of our day at the beach! It goes to show you that wonderful gifts do not have to cost much when you use a little creativity! I hope this will inspire you to create a special gift for someone!

Have a Wonderful Mother's Day
