Tonight I'm making my Mum a patchwork cushion for Mothers Day.
I'm not a fan of the commercial side of these kinds of holidays, and I know my mum would rather I gave her something that I spent time making and considering. I think it's a lot more personal, and special to receive something handmade.
Mothers day is a great excuse to break out the creativity and show your mum you really care. There's some great bit and bobs on etsy too for people who have less time to make things, but still want to get something unique and handmade by independent crafters/artists.
I'm a big fan of etsy, and plan to get my shop back up and running soon!
