My Mother’s Day Craft Just For Me

This Mother’s Day my husband had to work. When my daughter heard it was Mother’s Day her response was “that means Daddy and I have to make you something!”  I guess she loves crafting just as much as we do (yay!). Anyway, knowing that Daddy was going to be out working all day I decided to pull out the handprint casting kit we have had since she was a baby and never got around to using.

My husband has a coffee mug, from Father’s Day last year, with the girly’s handprints on it as well as a Valentines’ card with foot prints from when she was a baby so I decided this one was for me. I set it up, did my handprint, and then Avery’s and then selfishly painted it myself so I could keep it forever. This is how it turned out:


I am considering painting the white part turquoise but haven’t decided yet. I think it would look great both ways. And, as it turns out I somehow forgot to do our picture cards this year. For the last few years I have taken a picture of Avery and I together and put it on a Mother’s Day card for Avery’s Grandmother’s. Now I am extra glad we at least did the hand prints. I do think I should probably get it together and do the photo anyway even though we missed the boat on the card. I like the idea of being able to look back through the years and see how we have changed from year to year.


One thought on “My Mother’s Day Craft Just For Me

  1. Your hand prints are sweet, wish I had done those! Mother’s Day, when I was growing up was a huge affair, it’s a good excuse to celebrate something that often just comes naturally.
