9 Favourite DIY Mother’s Day Gifts

My mother means a lot to me. Lately, she’s been a huge part of our day-to-day life – she’s been helping me watch my girlies on her days off work as I work on Our DIY House. She’s also the reason why I’m such a DIYer. She’s the original crafty woman in our family! She’s taught me everything I know. I love and respect my mom and I hope that I can be as good of a mom to my babies as she is to me and my siblings (there are five of us!).Continue reading

Commit to A Handmade Christmas This Year

For the past couple of years, I’ve been making an effort to either make DIY gifts for my family and friends for Christmas or buy handmade gifts for them. I think handmade gifts are so full of thought and love, don’t you?

Commit to A Handmade Christmas This Year with The DIY Mommy

Here’s the mission statement I’m making for myself this Christmas season. If these sound like things you’d also like to commit to, I’d invite you to join me this year on A Handmade Christmas journey. I’ll be posting some fun Christmas gift tutorials and links to other gift idea tutorials in this blog series that I hope you’ll find useful.

Mission: I will give handmade DIY gifts to all of my family and friends this year. These gifts will be either made by me or handmade by someone else. The only exceptions I’ll make are books and photo gifts.
