A gift idea: For the woman who has everything

2 Jul

Has this ever happened to any of you? Finding a gift for a person who has everything.  Recently, my mom celebrated her birthday.  Actually it was 3 days after mine.  I always tell her I am her forever birthday gift.  Now you know that’s about cute for a few years, then mom wants you to pony up and get her a real gift.

This year I was at a lost.  I could do the “old” reliable, a gift card.  However, I did that last year.  So when it doubt ask someone who does not know your mommy.  I was talking to my friend Denise and she suggested an idea she saw on Pinterest.  Eureka! Why didn’t I think of that.  My friend suggested I do a hand print craft featured on TresFrenchhens. Here is a picture.

 It is a really cool idea. So I set out to make it happen for my mom.  My first task, find an affordable frame big enough for our little family project for mom.  I went to Goodwill.  This actually was my first time in this thrift store haven.  I racked up not only a good-sized picture frame, a chair for my girls room(my next revamp project), a plate, tambourine for less than $20. Score!

The first thing, I traced all of my families hand prints on coordinating colors of scrapbook paper.  I actually had some on hand(no pun intended).

The frame I purchased for $2.75 actually had a picture inside mounted on heavy cardboard. I did not want to move it because of its durability, instead I used scrapbook paper left over from our hand print and covered part of the picture.

Next, I used Mod Podge to glue down each hand print starting with the biggest down to the smallest. I can tell you it was not easy tracing the hand print of a 2-year-old. We had to do it at least three times. I opted not to put our name but instead my favorite Bible scripture, Proverbs 31:28, “Her children arise up, and call her blessed…”

It was a super easy project and I like how it turned out. You can see my pictures below.  What do you think? In His Super Grace,
