Made With Love for Mother’s Day

So I realize it’s August and I’m just now posting about something that happened in May, but hey busy life!

I decided to make some handmade gifts to all the lovely mamas/grandmama in my life. First I made some hand drawn cards and used Photoshop to turn them into a chalkboard effect. I am a firm believer in handmade cards; they are full of love and each one is unique. The awesome tutorial can be found here.

It was so easy to do and was so much fun to come up with my own style of lettering. Also eraser marks don’t matter! They just add to the chalkboard effect.


Here are some more pictures:

I also decided to make lavender sugar scrub (and even kept some for myself.) The only ingredients were white granulated sugar, raw sugar, coconut oil, dry lavender, and lavender essential oil. It was so easy to make and it feels great to use in the shower. If you are interested, check out the directions here.

All the mamas/grand-mama loved their gifts and I was so happy to make their days a little brighter! I love to make my own handmade gifts full of love just as much as I love to see how happy they make others.

Until next time! (Which will be sooner, I promise.)
