Mother's Day Gift for Yourself



Do you have tiny onesies stashed in your closet from when your kids were little?  That take home outfit or Christening gown shouldn't be hidden away.  They are too cute. 

So treat yourself to your own Mother's Day gift and display them.

I bought a couple of 11x14 frames at Wal-Mart for $5.00 each.  I got out some construction paper (you can use scrapbook paper), tape, and scissors. 

I ironed the teenie-weenie onesies and used double sided tape to affix them to some construction paper.  You can loop any regular tape to work just fine.  I printed up the kids names, birthday, time of birth, and birth weight on the computer.  I cut that out and put it at the bottom just below the outfits. 



Now I have a sweet reminder from when my kids were super little.  I walk past them every time I go down the hall.  It is the best $10.00 (since I bought two frames) I ever spent on myself.  :-)

If price was not a factor, what would you buy yourself for Mother's Day?
