Not sure what you are planning for Mothers day, but I did something a little different for my Mum and Mum in law this year. Photo gifts from TruPrint. I don’t really see the point in handing a greetings card to someone you see in person so I tend not to send them to our Mums.
For my own Mum I made a large photo mug using images of me and my boys from my phone. I forgot to photograph it to show you – I liked it too much and gave it to my Mum already, sorry readers. Mothers day is actually on Sunday the 15th of March this year so I was far too early.
For Mum in law I used the professional images from our photo shoot about two years ago. The images might be old, but I love them. This time I chose more standard sized mugs, one is red inside with blue on the outside, and the other is the reverse – a deliberately odd but matching pair. I thought that if it said Mothers Day Mum in law would only use it in March as the things that mention Easter or Christmas are hidden the rest of the year, so on these I have no words.
Whilst I was shopping on TruPrint I couldn’t resist getting some photos printed out for myself, for a home décor idea. I thought it would be nice to stick photos to my white living room wall. I used Photo Frame Removable Decals I bought from Amazon. These are Very tricky to put up, but I love the end result of photos I like stuck to my wall, with no drilling holes for screws to hold up traditional photo frames. I intend to add more photos in time, hence why I have gone for a random layout of the frames on my wall. On the upside, the sticky frames are cheap to buy at around a fiver, and you canget other styles thick frames, Old fashioned frames or even a family tree style.
