  1. I remember as a kid my mom always saying that she would treasure something I made more than something I bought. Of course, I don't still make her present because I don't think something made of popsicle sticks would have the same meaning when I am 30 years old!!!!

    WOW these are all very creative gifts and can be given not just for mothers day. I love the painted flower steaks in the yard. Very pretty. I love homemade gifts they are so much more valuable.
