Too Cute Not To Toot!

First up this week are some Mother's Day Ideas.  Yes, I know, Mother's Day is done and gone but, these all come up at the end of the week so I thought I would share anyway.  There are other days you can use these gifts for like Birthdays and Christmas and they don't have to be just for mothers - you could also use them for friends, new moms, brides - to - be, or sister (in-laws too).  Or, just save them for next year!

I've seen tin can treats done for other things and never could figure it out (obviously there were no tutorials on the others I saw!) but Our Best Bites gives all the info you need to make this adorably cute gift idea.
Here is a printable coupon book from Tip Junkie that you can also personalize with photos if you chose the correct template. (I just noticed that there were several options available - you chose what you want to do!)
I found an idea for a Shrinky Dink Bracelet from two different sources; two totally different looks so I want to share (Do you remember doing Shrinky Dinks?  They were so much fun!)  First up is, At Second Street
And also at Stories by Me
Craftomaniac created this really adorable "Favorite Things" basket.  If you know someone who has to spend any time in the hospital - this would also make a great gift idea as well - my cousins did something similar for me when I was in for 6 weeks with Josh.  They brought me a bag full of sample perfumes, chapstick, candy, gum, Bath and Body Works stuff and tons of magazines!


Here's a great "simple" garden idea from The Dragons Fairytail  I'm not into tilling up the ground and putting in anything huge - this would take up very little space especially if you only want to grow lettuce :-)  (And it would keep the rabbits out!)


I love these letters from Artsy Fartsy Mama.  I just started a letter series with Josh (we are still on A) and I think these would be really great to use with the lessons.  I think I even have fabric downstairs AND I bet my mom has some quilt batting I could steal borrow when I see her this weekend (she probably has some scrap fabric I could also steal borrow so I wouldn't have to spend any money on this project for awhile! HINT HINT mom! hahaha)
I think that is where I'll stop for now - blogger is giving me a few fits tonight and I have lost a few more items I had posted this week - I'll try again later this week and add them in for next week :-)  I like this time of year because I'm seeing lots of "general" ideas instead of just holiday ideas! 

Enjoy your week :-)
