Some Mother’s Day Crafts

So I didn’t get pictures of everything because I forgot to take my camera to Mom’s house. I did get pics of the awesome bath salts I made for her. I got the recipe from one of my favorite websites (There are sooo many crafty people out there)

This recipe came from susanstars and let me tell you it was super easy! I made coffee cinnamon scented bath salts and put them in plastic canning jars I got from Wal-Mart for $3.

I also made eye masks with a pattern I got from Burda Style- and a tute from craftster. Let me tell you- Mom was very excited about her eye mask. Hers was a cream colored one with green and maroon flowers-matched her living room. Pardon my diva model…this has been claimed as her eye mask because she NEEDS her rest!

Never fear, she gets her rest. I am sure I could fill more than one post about this darling child of mine. What’s that country song…Wild One by Faith Hill…yeah that would describe her. I guess she gets it honest.
Anyway I packaged them all in some of the take out boxes I bought at Michaels a LONG time ago and I think overall they looked great. I had also made my mom a necklace and bracelet, but those I forgot to photograph. Here’s the package she got (the blue one was for my little sister.)

Anyway, that’s just a sampling of all the things I stayed busy with last week- in addition to Mommy duty and working for Dad. I think I should slow down a little…or figure out how to better manage my 24 hours in a day!!
