Blog Swap: Creative Cain Cabin

I’m swapping blogs today with Dawn from Creative Cain Cabin.
You can hop over there to find out how I made these:


Charger 13

You can use them for your Mother’s Day celebration or any other festive occasion.
They are simple to make, inexpensive and add a bit of flair to any table!

Go HERE for the full tutorial.

And, on my blog today…
Dawn has a wonderful budget-friendly Mother’s Day gift to share!

                         Hi, I'm Dawn from Creative Cain Cabin.

I'm a country girl with a New York attitude, living in a small village in the mid west.  I run our family's environmental business from home. I love family, shoes, fashion, and home decorating.  My blog has a regular Monday DIY and Tutorial post, a Wednesday fashion post, a Friday Recipe, and frequent Giveaways going on. 

Drop by the cabin, put your feet up, and take a tour.

Mother’s Jar of Love
I wanted to show you how to created a Mother’s Day gift on a budget and still be heart felt.

This is the one I made for my Mom several years ago and I wanted to share it with everyone.

What you will need:
1 pickle jar or similar
(If you don't have one on hand, stop at any local diner and they will normally have one they can give you.)
365 note cards
Scrap of fabric for the lid

The idea is to come up with 365 memories shared between you and your Mom.  I know it seems like a lot and even overwhelming, but, believe me, once you take the time to sit down and start thinking the memories will flow.

If you have siblings, split the cards up and have everyone write down memories.

I had many laughs and some tears writing my Mom’s and even some memories she had forgotten but, once she stared reading the note card, it came back to her.

Add some potpourri and the note cards.
(Now every card will smell pretty.)
Let your Mom know she is to read only one memory per day. This will give her something to look forward to every day.

As we all know--memories are precious!
