Mother's Day Ideas

Proverbs 31:28 Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.

 I am preparing to honor my Mother this Sunday. I have a page in progress. The journaling is giving me difficulty. How do I condense the things my Mom has done for me to fit on one page? I think I have found the pictures I want to use. I know pictures exist of just her, more common are the ones with a grandchild on her knee or leaned in beside her.As I looked through the photos, I found more stories to tell.
Instead of a page, I should have planned a whole album!

Another way to honor Mother's is with cards. My husband would rather a card I make because I have to choose the words inside. The idea makes sense. Since he told me that, I try to make all my cards. I assume others like the hand chosen sentiments as well. Often times, I will design the front of the card on the computer and then use my hand-writting to fill the inside. It ads that extra personalisation.

I haven't started the card for Mom. I have been browsing through Katie's kits and found a few that would make nice cards. I've shown a few here. The various pink and green hues of the Shabby + Chic kit and the Fleur kit are obvious choices for Mother's Day. However, some moms just aren't that into pink. My girls would know to look for a nice red like in the Alisa kit. Whatever your Mom's preference, there is sure to be a kit that works.
How do you plan to honor your Mom this Sunday? How would you like to be honored?
