When holidays, birthdays and other gift-giving occasions approach, my first inclination is to make something. And I can always come up with a project that is both heartfelt and useful for the recipient. But this year, in advance of Mother’s Day, I was stumped. I couldn’t decide what to make for my own mother. My daughter, however, saved the day.
Thanks to an awesome, easy-to-use Personalized Mugs kit for less than $10 at Walmart, this year’s crafting was done by my 7-year-old.
The kit included 2 ceramic mugs, a paintbrush and a set of paints in a variety of colors — everything she needed to create one-of-a-kind gifts for the moms in her life.
The instructions required her to leave at least an inch of space at the lip of the cup for drinking, and I think she did a great job. She painted to her heart’s content and created these two beauties:
The mugs are now ready for everyday use, like a hot cup of tea in the morning. According to mini me, she’ll be using my mug to deliver breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day.
Now that’s what I call a gift!
