What is wrong with me? I must be a glutton for punishment….I keep choosing these Super Moms as my features.
Not only is she a super mom she’s also contributing editor to "Christian Woman" magazine and author of the book "Giving for All It's Worth." And contributed a chapter to the book "Woman to Woman." I’d say she’s a show off…….but don’t we love show offs? I know I do.
I think what caught my eye the most is how she takes a simple idea to make something a not so simple looking gift or event. Like this pitcher of lemonade ….Seriously….the impress factor just went up 100 notches. Simple! Add a silk flower, some ribbon……WOW!
She made Strawberry cookies…….I’ve never heard of Strawberry cookies….she has the recipe on her site along with 100s of other recipes….I think I remember her saying she packaged these up for her daughters friends. Simple gesture….but very thoughtful.
Speaking of simple but thoughtful….she put this together for her brother in law….or maybe it was just her brother. She uses vinyl lettering a lot. Such great ideas. Presentation is key.
How about this? She bought the coffee mugs from The Dollar Tree…….added a monogram to some cute fabric, added a bow……So cute! So much better than just a regular coffee mug. There are lots of great gift ideas on her blog…..Christmas IS coming.
This is just a lil’ sumpin sumpin she put together for her sister in law. Boy she must love her….I think the best thing I ever got from my sister in law was a candle. I would fall over if I opened up this gift. Wouldn’t matter who I got it from.
Spending a bit of time at her blog, you can tell she goes all out. You can also tell she enjoys it. This below is a photo collage (love those) of a back to school dinner. BACK TO SCHOOL? WOW. I’d like to see Thanksgiving at her house. Her kids are lucky….I’m definitely not going to show my son this….he was happy with his Take and Bake pizza we had.
She has great table scapes….love this center piece. Did I mention she has a ton of recipes on her site? I did? Well this is one you’ll want. She added this to my Get Your Craft On Tuesdays. Spiced Pumpkin Latte…….Dang! I can’t wait to try this….. This below was from yet another celebration dinner……she has a lot of them…….But would you look at those pumpkin bowls? Do you think she’s like us scrapbookers? You know how you find a cute embellishment and then you find a reason to use it? I think she finds cute dishes and decides to find a way to use them….Darling pumpkins….. Melissa has a lovely family. She shares not only great recipes, table scapes, and great gift ideas….but she’s got great ideas for family fun.
Enjoy and make me proud….leave her a comment.
