A mother is a person who, seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie. ~Tenneva Jordan

Mother's day is fast approaching - are you ready? While mothers and grandmothers are the main focus, Mother's Day is also a great time to celebrate other women of influence in our lives. Whether you are having Sunday brunch, or making a long distance phone call, it is important to show these women how much we care.

Most of us spend a fair amount of time thinking about what we can do to make the day special for the ladies we are celebrating. Finding the perfect gift that shows your appreciation for all that she does can be challenging. Things were a lot easier when we were kids, and a handmade card was the perfect gift. This year, we're suggesting a return to handmade gifts for Mom. Select a pattern that suits her, and start stitching! Is your Mother the handy one? Cross stitch kits are a great gift to keep her happy and busy!

Need help with your selection? Here are our top three picks for Mothers:

The Young Gardener  - Helping Mom, helping me.

Orchid - Give Mom an Orchid that will last forever.

Bobcat Kittens - Finding some bluebells for Mom.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day! As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions!
