I don’t really know who came up with the timing for Mother’s Day, but they really should be fired from their job. They’re probs not around anymore, unless they’re a vampire. 

It sneaks up on us every year. Said founder never considered end-of-the year chaos, combined with all the parties, obligations, and really just wanting to give up in general. How dare they not realize our modern day demands in 1900 something?! And every time something like this comes up, I think about people who don’t have a relationship with their mother, want to be a mother, can’t be a mother, don’t want to be a mother, is missing their mother… so many combos, I could never cover them all. Pressure applied by labels really aren’t any fun. In other words, don’t tell me when to celebrate my mother. Take that, national calendar! Speaking of… I just googled it. THE IRONY. YOU’RE FIRED, ANA JARVIS!

I feel like all my posts have a recurring theme of late. Read: over it. So if you’re anything like us and wanting to do something handmade just for the sake of handmade, here are a few of our fave ideas. If this makes you want to punch us in the throat for thinking that you have time to make this, we promise the next post will be fun and interesting. In the meantime, save it for fun things when you’re feeling more zen and handmade-ish. Good vibes and feelings and love all around. So without further ado, easy handmade mother’s day gift ideas.
