gifts for my mom…

This post may contain my affiliate link. For more information, please see my disclosure policy: Thanks! :)

I got to see my mom this last weekend~my husband got me a plane ticket for my birthday to see my sister and her new baby and my mom drove down to meet us. More on that later! This is what I did for some little gifts for late mother’s day and early birthday presents:
Some of her favorite quotes in dollar store and clearance Target frames

Why to the 7? She raised 7 of us! This is the last pic I have of us all together at my sister’s wedding (I’m #2)
Meet my brothers and sisters: Nicholas, Kerri, Christopher, Kelsey, brother in law David, me, Michael, and Kristin. Girls won by one.

Gifts don’t have to be expensive…a little thought, a little spray paint, an iron, you’re good to go :)
Happy Tuesday~


  1. Great gifts for mom! What a beautiful family picture. Your sisters wedding gown and bouquet are gorgeous!

  2. beautiful quotes/gifts. I think I need them in my house too:)

  3. Okay, I have said that I was done having children, but now your family photo makes me want to have more! I love big families! What a precious Mom you have to raise all 7 of you. You have a beautiful family.

  4. What a lovely photo and I LOVE the quotes you used!

    You are totally gonna think I am all psycho crazy, but I SWEAR I know your brother Christopher from somewhere. Did he by chance live in Miss., MT? That HAS to be where I know him from. It's driving me nuts!

  5. You are soo inspiring!!

    What an example of "her children rising up and calling her blessed"

  6. What a wonderful idea and a beautiful family!!

  7. How beautiful! What a lovely family!

  8. Great idea! Lovely family picture as well!

  9. I love this post! Your family is absolutely, positively, incredibly beautiful!!

    I like the gifts you made for your mom, and I'm betting she loved them. I particularly like that quotation from Victor Hugo--I'd never read that. I'm going to keep that one!

  10. WOW, what a beautiful family! And I love mom/7!!

  11. Can I have ur permission to copy that Mom logo? It is just too gosh darn cute. Oh, great photo with the fam.

  12. These are the best type of gifts to receive! I'm sure they'll treasure not only the gifts, but your time and talent in creating such gifts. Lovely family photo!

  13. What a good looking group you are! What a nice picture of you all together. Great idea for the frames; I have that top one and it is sitting empty waiting for something to fill it. I think a quote is a good idea.

  14. Melissa, you all are such a beautiful family!!! Just lovely. :)

    I really like your gift ideas. The mom7 t-shirts were all the rage at the MOPS International Conference in Nashville last year. Kudos to you for figuring it out on the cheap!! :)

  15. Mom must be so happy and proud. You are a beautiful family!!!

  16. My goodness you have a beautiful family! You have some seriously good genes to pass down! Love your blog too!

  17. What a gorgeous family...and I love that quote too.

  18. Lovely family photo. You are all so pretty:)

  19. Tus trabajos soy muy lindos Melissa! y sales bella en la foto, deseo que siempre estén juntos en familia, eso es lo mejor!

    Your sister's dress is beautiful!  Do you mind sharing who the designer was or where she got it?  I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT and would love to have a similar design for myself.  My wedding is next year, and I am just starting to look for dresses.  THANK YOU!

    Hi Megan~
    I asked her and she said: "I got it at Alyssa's Bridal in Provo. But that was 4 years ago, so I don't know if they will still have it."
    I hope that helps!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a note!
