Mother's Day is Coming...

...and I'm just so grateful to the women in my life who help me to be the best wife and mother I can be by giving me support and friendship throughout the year, so I made them a little token of my appreciation. I saw these "coasters" from Tricia-Rennea and thought, "Those would be cute in a flower pot." So I printed them up, glued two of them to a popsicle stick, and modge podged both sides to make them shiny.

Then I took the flower pots I found at the Dollar Spot at Target, and added Zinnias I found a the local garden center. Viola! A token of my appreciation for my friends.

I also potted a verbena (I just love verbena, don't you) and added it to the bag I gave my friend for her birthday. (I was able to give it to her last night--her birthday is actually on Mother's Day...she loved them both.)

What do you think? Aren't they cute? Learning to do more and more for myself means I can give the kind of present I like to receive. I feel good about it because I'm giving of myself, too.
