Last Minute DIY Mother's Day Gift

Have you waited until the last minute to get a special mom on your list a gift for the big day tomorrow? If so, shame on you! But, never fear, I’ve got an awesome homemade gift to share with you that almost any mom is sure to love and you’ve probably got everything you need laying around the house.
So what is this wonderfully awesome, insanely inexpensive, simple to make gift? Behold, the earring holder!
Super cute right?! (And, yes, of course this came from Pinterest)
All you need is a frame and burlap! Actually, I’m pretty sure that lace would work nicely too and would even give it an extra girly touch ;)
I ran across this old frame while cleaning out drawers, popped the back off, took out the glass, and placed 2 pieces of burlap in there instead of a picture. Seriously, it couldn’t have been easier!
To make your earring holder a little sturdier, for moms who wear heavier jewelry, you could easily add a few dots of hot or super glue to hold the burlap or lace in place.
And if you’re feeling extra crafty you could personalize it by painting an initial, favorite verse, or saying on the burlap or lace!
If you make one share a picture with me! I can see these getting very creative and I’m always looking for new ideas :o)

Friday Freeze Frame-I'm One Lucky Duck

Friday Freeze Frame is a new idea of mine to share photos with you, my readers! I snap pictures all week long and realized that I rarely share them here, so it's about time that I start :o)

Today's photographs were our Easter pictures taken by Soul Reflections Photography. (I just picked them up yesterday!)

Theses smiles light my world! They had such a good time with the baby ducks and I hope to always remember how excited they were this day <3

I just loved this black and white shot! K seems to be looking at her "big sister" like, "lead me", while M is gazing at the ducky just soaking up the moment. What a lesson that is! To just enjoy a moment......

And finally, this one says it all! Those sweet girls sharing their sweet kisses with those sweet duckies. *melts*
