With Mother's Day on the mind, I've been chatting gifts with several of my friends. This year, I got my mom a beautiful hand drawn sketch of F&B (her only grandkids). I didn't draw it though, a talented friend of mine did.
But in terms of what to craft, I realized I have never blogged this muffin tin and it is possibly one of my favorite things I've ever made. It hangs in my mom's kitchen in Canada, and I actually made it right before Ben was born, hence why it only has baby Faith in it, and the lack of creating it pictures. (The only picture I have from when I made it was taken in June 2005.)
Simply, it's a 12 cup muffin tin, covered with scrapbook paper, embellishments, ribbon, and a poem I found online about cooking in "Grandma's" kitchen, which had to be changed to Nana since my mom has been Nana since Faith could talk. The inset pictures are Faith baking and cooking at our old house on a visit with Nana when Shaun & I were in Vegas years ago.
To make, all it took was the supplies, a bit of hot glue, scrapbook tape and ModPodge, plus a bit of sandpaper to sand down the muffin tin so the tape would stick. ;o) I attached hooks on the back so it can hang, but it would probably look cute on a stand if you have the counter space to display.
