Hello lovely readers! With Mother’s Day right around the corner (yes, it’s THIS Sunday!), I thought I would do a handy little round-up of my favorite Mother’s Day gift DIY’s… You’re welcome ;-)
Nothing say’s Mother’s Day to me like a handmade gift. With SO many posts out there showcasing ideas for kids to make for their mothers, I thought I’d focus more on some ideas for us grown-up children.

Some of us live too far away to show up with gifts in hand on Mother’s Day… How about sending Mom a beautifully wrapped care package? Tell me you wouldn’t just be delighted if this showed up at your door! Get the tutorial over at The Dating Divas.
#9 DIY a Gratitude Journal:
A gratitude journal is basically a notebook where at the end of the day, you write down the things you are grateful for… When you’re feeling particularly blue one day, it’s really great to open up to random pages and re-read your entries. Find out more and how to DIY one for your mom over at eHow.
#10 DIY Infused Olive Oils:
These DIY infused olive oils are perfect for the mom who loves to cook! Some of these oils can cost a fortune in high-end kitchen supply stores… find out how to make some for your mom this Mother’s Day at Just Putzing.
