This custom Double Initial Silver-plated Letterpress Necklace by Erica Weiner Jewelry is so unique and special, and completely thoughtful and personal!

To Mom, with love

By guest blogger Geeta Sachdeva
Next weekend is Mother’s day. How about taking the opportunity to get some wedding stress off your mind? Plan a wonderful day with your Mom. Remember that these past few months have probably been a whirlwind for her as well. So why not involve her in the planning process, seek her advice and make her feel that you value her opinion? Make the most of this time, and tell her the wedding of your dreams will be incomplete without her support.

A great idea would be to give her a handmade Mother’s day gift that shows how much she means to you. A personalized photo album would be great for showcasing your childhood memories.

Another cool idea would be to have two cards in contrasting colors placed on adjacent pages, using one as a frame for pictures or memorabilia and the other for writing comments! (I got the Wild Grass Wedding Reception Cards in chocolate and soft pink from Wedding Paper Divas.)

Here is a page from my scrapbook. I hope it inspires you!
