Happy Mothers day to any Mums reading this post, and for those of you that aren't, I hope you have spoilt your mum rotten!
I do feel that the card companies just use this Sunday as another excuse to get the tills ringing, but it is always something I have loved, whether it is buying just a £2 bunch of daffs for my mum, or splashing out, all it does is let your mum know that all those little things that she may think are insignificant, actually mean a lot to us. I do regularly tell her I love her, and appreciate her, but this just makes it officially about her!
Now that I am a mum to Max (2 years old in June), I know how much hard work it is, you never stop, you always worry when they're not with you, and recently on a night away with work, how my heart ached for my boys at home! My mum has told me that even though her babies are now 39 and 34 (ahem, make that 40 and 35 this year....I'm the younger one before you ask), she still worries about us and wants to always know we are happy.
This year I wanted to do something with a difference for my mum, so found this gorgeous and clever card for my mum on etsy
I then came across @typographyoflove on twitter by pure chance and thought this would be perfect for my mum, she is a big softy, and loves anything that she can see you had to put some thought into. Mel at Typography of Love offers you various templates which you can then give her 12 words that mean something to whoever you are doing this for, and adds them inbetween some others already on the template, you also choose the colours. There was one word that was really not right for my mum so I asked her if we could change one, which she happily did without any question. So below is my beautiful gift for mothers day for my wonderful mum. (including the frame and delivery this was just £35)
Onto my second mothers day, and I received a beautiful bunch of flowers, a beautiful butterfly made at Nursery, and 2 very special cards, one from Max and one from James. Now off to Mothers day dinner too!
Did you get anything special or do anything special for your mum?
