If you’re like me, Spring may seem a little early this year. I feel like we just made it through the holidays and already it’s almost Spring Break! That may be because I’ve been wrapped up in moving to a new house and haven’t thought of much else besides the absolute necessities involved in selling and buying, packing and unpacking. (You’ll hear lots more about the house soon!)
Since I’m so behind on everything, I thought I’d try to get ahead of the game for at least one holiday: Mother’s Day.
Now here’s a holiday I can really appreciate. As a daughter, I definitely appreciate my mother, but as a mother, I appreciate any day that gets me out of doing the dishes, even if it’s only to find twice as many hiding in the sink the next morning because no one else did them either.
This fun roundup comes from UncommonGoods, an amazing website that showcases artists’ and artisans’ handmade creations, all while on a mission to encourage environmental and social responsibility. I love their fun selection of unusual items and gifts, so when they approached me for a sponsored post, I already had it half-written in my head! Read on for some gifting inspiration, either for yourself or someone you love, then visit their website for more information.
