A special thank you to everyone that came out last weekend to celebrate Spring, Moms and a love of paper and florals. Lots of love and snail mail to be made by all and the uber talented Karma Flowers taught the group how to make flower cloches, each one unique and lovelier than the next. Hosted at My Social Heirloom in Upper Montclair, a great workspace for rent and Ashley the shop owner has a wonderful pop up shop of local artisans. See her calendar of other enticing and upcoming events here.
There are some great new scrapbooking papers in market right now that include special features like foil, texture and glitter. I found these 12×12 sheets that are perfect to make DIY gift tags out of. Each 12×12 sheet cuts down to 12 tags, perfect for a little Mother’s Day gift.
If you still haven’t picked up a gift for Mom, here are a few last minute ideas that are sure to make Mom happy!

For the woman that has it all, an xperience designed by yours truly
And if you’re still stumped, see more ideas for the ladies here
Moms typically give of themselves tremendously without asking for very much in return. Today make sure that your Mom feels special, loved and pampered because the truth is she deserves it. Make a card, bring her breakfast in bed, supply her with a certificate for the ultimate spa experience. Do all the little things around the house that she may do every day without a single complaint. Today she should be able to appreciate being a Mom without the every day stresses of raising a family. To all the Moms that nurture and love unconditionally, Happy Mother’s Day!
