I have been a part of a local Moms group since I had Ruby and it has been a huge blessing in my life. There is so much comfort in knowing I'm not alone in the daily joys and struggles of motherhood. This year I decided to take on the role of a table leader, who basically is the contact person a small group of Moms and makes sure they feel welcome. Part of that role involves providing a small gift for the first day. I wanted to share the sweet little gifts I put together for my Moms, I hope they like them.
Not buying anything new, continues to have it's challenges. We were given a little budget for this, so I was able to buy the journals, but everything else I put together from things I already had. I started with the vintage clothespins, which I though would be fun to personalize with stamps. Then I found the recycled paper journals with natural prints and colors at Target. Next, I had a long necklace from a few years back with lots of dangling gold discs which I made into 4 pairs of earrings and 3 necklaces. I cut out some cream colored card stock I had on hand with scalloped edged craft scissors and poked holes for the jewelry. I clipped everything together with the clothespin and they are ready to go.
