Time for our next giveaway and promotion! This cute little saying is perfect for Mother's Day. This tile is 5.75"x5x75". I will be giving away this tile to one lucky winner on Friday! Receive one entry for every comment that you leave about why you love being a mom or what you love about your own mom. Receive another entry for joining us on facebook and liking our status and get entered to win again when you share this with your friends! If you'd like to order the tile they are normally $5.00 but I will be discounting this particular saying from now until May 1st to $4.00. Order just the vinyl for $1.50 and make your own. Message me at email@example.com if you're interested in ordering. I bought this particular tile at Lowe's, but Home Depot is a great place to pick up a tile as well.
I'll go ahead and start with what I love about my mom... one of the things I love about her is that she is a good listener. She's always willing to let me talk out things that I'm concerned about. One of the things I love about being a mom is watching my kids learn something new. It is amazing to watch someone master a new skill whether it's riding a bike by themselves or learning something new at school.

I love decorating for Easter! This is my favorite Easter sign because I love chocolate.
It's easy to make too. It's a 12"x12" board that I routed and then painted blue.
Next I applied the vinyl. I love adding handles to signs! So the next step is to drill holes in and then tie the ribbon around the sign and the handle. I like using wired ribbon in situations like these because it is easy to manipulate the bow.
A couple of years ago when I saw this idea for Easter baskets I knew I had to make them.
These are just the metal buckets that you buy from Home Depot or Lowe's in their paint department. You need 3-4 coats of spray paint and then a little vinyl sticker. But why stop there? We added a little bling to girls' buckets, a few flowers and ribbon.
I realize there are limits to what you can do with ribbon, and so I used the twine around my son's bucket.
By the time that I bought 3 different colors of spray paint I felt like the cost of the project was adding up a little bit, but my sister had a great idea to check at Wal-Mart and Target in their garden departments for color buckets. They are a little smaller, but come already in cute spring colors! I hope you have a happy Easter.
