a simple gift

Last week was my mom's birthday... 
Without a lot of extra time or money...these days require that gifts are simple and fairly cheap!
So here's what I came up with :)

Hand-drawn doodles on the card and envelope make it sweet... and adds a personal touch

I found some vintage unfinished quilt blocks at a little rummage sale at our church...she loves that kind of stuff!

I enclosed a few current pictures of Virgil, then also printed out the photo strip from my earlier post.
I folded it accordion style, punched little holes in the ends, and tied with baker's twine.
This simple format wouldn't even need a design/photoshop program to create... simply line up your  photos in a word document and print on card stock!

Simple and Cheap!



  1. What a lovely, heartfelt, and beautifully frugal idea! These types if gifts are the most cherished. ♥

  2. That is so sweet! Truly a wonderful gift. So much better than candles and bath salts!

  3. This is really cute! It will surely make her smile!

  4. What a super cute and thoughtful gift!
    I bet your mom is going to LOVE it!
