It’s time to get selfish Mommas! Ok, no, that’s not what I mean at all. But it is time to take a moment for ourselves, and think about things we might enjoy. Things that might make us feel good. Because isn’t that what all the latest articles tell us? That a woman needs a little me-time? I’m a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to Mother’s Day: I like jewelry. So I wanted to share some of the cooler mother jewelry out there – add your favorite quote, your child’s funniest saying, the lattitude and longitude of a birth, wedding, or special event. There are so many ways to make these items more personal.
But I also keep hoping my little girl will make me something wonderful. I think I need to stop hinting to my husband, and instead sit him down and tell him that the two of them need to get crafty together. It just doesn’t occur to him. Here are a couple of ideas to get the ball rolling!
