More Mom’s Day Awesomeness!


I had so much fun showing off some of the cool, handmade Etsy finds that I had found for Mother’s day; I had to show you all some more! 

First off, I had to share these fun earrings with you; they are made by artisan Melissa Creamer of chrysalisjewelrytx I love that they are not perfectly matched beads and are truly unique and playful. Your fun-loving Mom would love these!

Look at the next fun item I discovered; a pretty chevron pouch by LaBelleMadeleine I love chevron, love pastel colors, and don’t get me started about handmade! A perfect gift for the Mom who loves style and has a practical side too!

Look at these amazing potholders from KraftyGrannysHome! These are almost too beautiful to use, but the Mom who loves to cook will break down and use these when she sees how well-made they are; I gave some to my Mom for Christmas last year and she loves them!

A personalized gift is always a fun way to tell Mom you love her; how about a ring with the kid’s names or her favorite inspirational words? Here are rings with birthstones too.

Fun Etsy Finds for Mom


Maybe you are like me and have no clue what to give Mom for Mother’s Day; I thought I would show you some fun finds for all types of Moms. I trolled through some of my favorite Etsy shops and wanted to show you what I found.

For the trendy Mom: What Mom wouldn’t love some new earrings for Mother’s Day? I know that a pair like these from BluKatDesign would be a welcome addition to the jewelry wardrobe of a fashionable Mom who loves to stay on-trend. Emerald Green is Pantone’s color of the year after all!

A teeny part of something special


I am so happy and excited to show off the teeny part of my contribution to an extraordinary anniversary gift. Amazing artisan woodworker, Robert Casanova of Casanova Home, asked for a custom plate to add to this gorgeous bench; he made it for his wonderful wife as an anniversary gift.

Needless to say, my contribution was quite minimal, but I was very excited to add this small touch to a wonderful gift and keepsake. Here is another shot of the bench.

A lovely thing about Casanova Home, is the use of upcycled materials. This makes each piece unique and sustainable too. Now you know where to look for a special, one-of-a-kind piece that will be certain to start a conversation.
