15 May DIY Gift Idea
Hey party people!
I wanted to share with you the DIY Gift idea I came up with to give my mom for Mother’s Day.
One of the reasons I love arts & crafts so much is because of my mother (and grandmother…or her mom). She used to always tell me, “Heidi, you can never make a mistake with arts & crafts because it’s your creation.” Being a perfectionist, those words allowed me the freedom to make mistakes…and call it art. 🙂
I came up with this gift idea because:
(1) My sister & I grew up doing crafts with my mom.
(2) Mom kept saying that the only thing she wanted for Mothers Day & her birthday was to spend time with her kids.
My original idea was to look for a Groupon for Sips & Strokes (the place you can paint a canvas & drink some wine or the beverage of your choice). Since I never found one, I decided to make my own.
I went to Michaels where I picked up three canvas’ (1 for me, my sister & mom), acrylic paint, paint brushes, and a paint palette.
Because alot of the paint supplies were on sale & I had a 15% off total purchase coupon, my total came out to be $23 for the whole gift. This included the yellow faux rose & yellow ribbon.
Even if I had gotten a Groupon, one person’s admission would’ve been about the amount I spent for the entire gift.
My sister said she’d bring a couple finger foods & next week we’re getting together to try our hand at acrylic painting.
Have I ever done it?
Will I probably make mistakes?
Will there be lots of laughter with our attempts?
Probably…maybe even a snort.
I really am thankful for this wonderful family I have…
My mom, my dad, my sister (and new brother in law), and my brothers Ned & Clayton.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
I’ve got an exciting interview to share with you this Friday! It’s a woman who I admire greatly! She’a a full-time mom & a full-time entrepeneur. You don’t want to miss it.
Until then…Party On!
