Warm Days and a Happy Holiday

Well Easter has flew the coop and Mother's Day is here!

 I have a very special Mom who always goes out of her way to do things for others without thinking of herself. I haven't made it to town to get anything for my Mom, so I thought I'd make her something I hope she will enjoy instead!

I was working on an upcycled wall pocket inspired by Somerset magazine for a swap on swap-bot, and thought it would be perfect for tucking in a little bit of happiness to send her way!
I first located a pair of jeans that needed upcycling, then cut closely around the pockets leaving the back layer of fabric intact so it can actually be usede as a pocket. I layed out what I wanted to decorate with- a qoute and some embellishments, a wire hanger, beads, ribbon- glued it together and there you have it!

A simple but sweet suggestion for a gift- a "mug rug" or minurature quilt
around 5"x7" that is just large enough for a mug or tea cup and snack to fit
 instead of a large placemat, perfect for a coffee break or teatime!
  Bundle with a darling mug and her favorite drink mix- coffee, hot chocolate, or tea,
 and a little treat- muffins, cookies, or crackers.

Some handmade dangles would add a CHARMING addition to her day, too!
Simple and cute, and room for some treats and card! Hope you all have a Happy Mother's Day!
