Whether your Mom is part of your daily life right now or not, I bet you have learned many things from her. I created this little tag/prompt to get us all journaling about our Moms. Feel free to pass this on to friends and families and encourage them to fill in their own answers.
10 Things I Have Learned From My Mom:
1. Being a Mom is the most important job in the world.
2. Be interested in what your kids are doing and who they are.
3. Enjoy spending time with your kids.
4. Don't be afraid to be a Mom and enforce the rules.
5. Always listen to what your kids have to say. Ask questions about their life.
6. Provide a safe, clean, and loving home environment.
7. Encourage your kids to find their own talents and follow their dreams.
8. Once you become a Mom, you are always a Mom.
9. Love your kids unconditionally.
10. Keep that sense of humor... it's critical!
Here are some fun gift ideas:
This one just makes me giggle! I think I need to make myself one of these. Free printable download here.
Make Mom a Mini-Album. They are quick, easy, and inexpensive! Be sure to read my article about them at The Daily Digi. There are several other gift ideas for and from digital scrapbookers in my gift article at The Daily Digi as well.
I love homemade gifts from my kids. This tote bag project from Martha is a cute idea!
A photo session. As a Mom who loves to take pictures, I would be very happy to get a coupon from a willing photography subject for a photo shoot.
and here’s one more gift idea…
A great deal on Photoshop Elements bundle!
I’m not an affiliate for Adobe so this isn’t a sponsored link or anything, just passing on a great deal to my readers if anyone is interested. I think this would be a great gift for any mom who wants to have fun editing photos (or for digital scrapbooking. From April 19 to May 10, Photoshop Elements 8 is available for as low as $69.99. A bundle package is also available for as low as $99.99, which adds Adobe Premiere Elements 8 software that takes editing and enhancing video to the next level. Promotion information will be available at www.adobe.com/go/psepre_bundle.
and here's a fun little tidbit from the Hallmark Channel. In honor of Mother's Day and the premiere of its Meet My Mom movie, Hallmark has a special tab on its facebook page called Meet My Mom. It allows people to upload photos, videos and notes about their moms and it was covered in Mashable today. There are lots of military videos, too. Each entry has a link you can use to share it with your mom. It would be easy to upload Mom layouts, too.
Hope you have fun getting ready for Mother’s Day this coming Sunday (May 9, 2010). I don’t usually post on Sundays, but I will have a fun layout to share here that day so stop on by my blog if you get a chance.
