Birthday Gifts For My Mom

We celebrated my mom's 50th birthday last weekend with a wonderful backyard party for family and friends. I have really been working hard on giving meaningful (often handmade) gifts. So, I thought I would share a few pictures of the gifts I made for her special day.
Nana's Notebook: This is just a simple spiral bound notebook with my kids' handprints cut out of scrapbooking paper and pasted to the front.
Happy Birthday banner made from fabric (and lots of Heat-n-Bond!)
This shadow box is a little tribute to my mom's grandparents. She has very fond memories of the house they lived in when she was a child. The fabric on the back looks a lot like the wallpaper that was is their bedroom. I added house numbers, a picture of the house, and a picture of her grandparents. A book pocket for a bed or armchair made from the same lilac fabric. I'm hoping to get a tutorial for this posted in the next day or so. Happy Birthday, Mom!! I hope you felt loved and honored.

Beth, I love the shadow box, I almost cried when I saw it. The material is so much like the wallpaper it's unreal! I love the notebook, the banner, and especially the book pocket, you are so talented!! When do you find time to do all these things?
Love you lots

If she likes chocolate...
you can make some for her. I added that onto this site and it explains everything you need to do. No oven is required.
