    Sharon, you have been one busy lady! So many pretty crafts to make for Mom, Grandma, Aunt, Sister, or for a Dear Friend! It is hard to just pick one. The cupcake bouquet will make anyone’s day. I hope someone in your family will create one for you, in your favorite flavors! Topiaries are delightful and can be designed with the recipient’s favorite colors. I especially like the 20 minute one. Who does not have 20 minutes to make a craft that will make Mom smile. As far as the Teatime Topiaries, I love those. Do not use the good set in your Mom’s dining room china cabinet. You can always purchase a new one or run down to the Dollar Store to pick one out. Happy Mother’s Day! Happy crafting!

      As always, thanks for adding in your ideas, too. And YES, do not use mom’s best teapot! Or if you do, wedge the foam in tight enough that you don’t need to glue it in place. That way, you can always remove the foam and flowers. I had fun looking back at all of these ideas, and I’m so thankful for the creative team that worked hard creating these pretties. Glad you stopped in, Angie. Sharon

    Wow – thanks for all the great ideas!

  3. Katiria says:

    35 ideas? If someone can’t find a beautiful gift to make out of these 35 ideas then they are hopeless! I like the Pink Posey Purse 😉

    • Sharon says:

      🙂 So glad you’re inspired, Katiria. I wanted to be sure there was something for everyone, and you know, I could have easily made it 50+, but I had to stop somewhere. I hope you’re crafters are working toward your special day! Thanks so much for stopping by. Sharon

  4. LOVE the Pink Posy Purse , Map Page Flower Wreath, Teatime and Teacup Topiaries, Mosaic Garden Balls and the Soothing Spa Eggs! Since my parents live in a Camper all Summer and a very small cottage in the winter I would be most likely to make the Spa Eggs or Garden Balls for Mom! They love gardening and have actually taken over all the flower gardening at the camp they stay at for the Summer so these would be perfect for her!! Thanks for the inspiration!!

    • Sharon says:

      If your parents love to garden, the Garden Balls are an excellent choice. I’ve had one in my garden for years, and it still looks beautiful. I hope you’ll send a few links to family members, Barb (wink, wink)! Thanks so much for stopping by today. Craft on, Barb. xo, Sharon
