[for the grandmothers on…]

mothersday1
Last night we got crafty working on something for the grandmothers on mother’s day. We had fun making custom stationary for Grandma Mary and Grandma Sylvia.

and custom artwork…

and custom clothes pins for the grandmas to hang artwork, letters, reminders, and more fun things!

Jon made his incredible chocolate chip cookies (which have changed our lives forever)…

and I special ordered this lovely and humorous book Hurry, Hurry, Mary Dear (sadly now out of print) which highlights all the the things mothers and grandmothers do for us. The story reminded us of Jon’s Granny Vincent and knew that Grandma Mary, her daughter, had to have it. The funny twist ending seems to fit their sense of humor perfectly.

The illustrations are also charming. I love the Shaker style interiors and gorgeous color palette.

We sure hope the grandmother’s enjoy our little gift! Because we sure are grateful for all that they do for us!
