Friday Favorites–Mother’s Day

This Mother’s Day is kind of a big one for me.  It’s my twentieth time celebrating it as a mom.  On top of that, I was born on Mother’s Day forty-five years ago.  I’m ready to party. Mother's Day Crafts and Recipes - Crafty Staci's Friday Favorites

I don’t know about you, but I’m not a big fan of breakfast in bed.  I’m always worried I’m going to spill something and sitting alone in my bed eating is not my idea of fun.  However, I LOVE when someone else is willing to do the cooking for me and I’m happy to come to the table and enjoy it.  These Strawberry and Sprinkles Buttermilk Pancakes from Averie Cooks would get the day off to a great start.

Photos are always a safe bet when it comes to gifts for moms.  I Heart Naptime took it a step further by including several generations in this Mother’s Day Printable Book.  I love that it’s round.

Let’s face it – sometimes us moms have to carry around a pair of eyeglasses.  Make your mom a stylish case for them with this pattern from Dream a Little Bigger.  Then tell her they’re for her sunglasses and earn a few points.

I started growing my hair out a couple of years ago.  It’s made its way more than halfway down my back.  Most of the time I love it, but sometimes I just need it out of the way.  One of these Double Sided Fabric Headbands by Happy Together would be a great Mother’s Day gift for me.  Hint, hint.

Back to photos again, this time as a Pull-out Photo Album from Country Living.  This is a great idea to file away for the graduations coming up too.

I can’t decide if the strawberry or rose heart is cuter in this project from Krokotak.  Obviously I chose the strawberry photo, but I had to flip a coin.

Coupons are an old Mother’s Day standby, for good reason.  What I particularly like about this version from Skip to my Lou is the clever use of a sewing machine to perforate each coupon.
