Description

What is the single most important thing you have learned from your mother?

We posed this question—plus a handful of others—to friends, family and Facebook followers for a new book, Mothers and Life Lessons. The hope was to create a gift book of inspiration in celebration of all moms and to pass on the priceless life wisdom moms share with their children.

Twenty-five sons and daughters stepped up and shared their stories of love, pride and, most of all, gratitude for their moms in this 60 page coffee table book. The questions provided a starting point for each child to reflect upon and talk about their mom’s influence on who they are today. What emerged were heartfelt stories that were equal parts love letter to Mom and a recipe for navigating life. The stories range from lighthearted and humorous to heartbreaking, with each story carrying a powerful message of inspiration. Together the collection forms 25 cherished life lessons lovingly passed from mother to child.

And, the book is ready to add your Mom's story...

This 13x11 hardcover book was designed so that the story narrative continues beyond these twenty-five amazing women. At the back of the book are two pages designed, ready and waiting to add your story and photo. Whether it’s in celebration of Mother’s Day, a special birthday, a gift to a new mom, or perhaps someone you know who needs a bit of motherly wisdom, you can add your handwritten story “What my mother taught me” to share with family and friends.

We completed the first press run of this hardcover book and are offering it for a special discount price for Etsy customers (50% off our price on Blurb). We went all out with high quality premium paper and binding for this extra special gift book.

We hope you draw inspiration from the stories. And, if you buy the book, we'd be happy to send you a few custom questions to get you started thinking about and writing your story for the book. Just convo us!

What frames work well with your canvases?

We buy most of the frames you see at fairs, on our website or in Etsy photos from Michaels. They offer custom framing that is pretty affordable but also offer really affordable off-the-shelf choices.

11x14 Gallery Frames With Double 8x10 Float Mats:
This is what we use most often for our 8x10 canvases. Look for the 11x14 frame that already has the mat as an 8x10 opening (We like the black frame with the black mat).

This is great for the beer, wine, dog, movie quote, friend, family rules and game night canvases.

Pre-Cut Mats:
These are really nice for the baby and Christmas canvases. We like the navy for the baby boy and the red for Christmas and Valentine’s Day. Then choose the frame that matches your décor best.

Sponged Bronze Frame:
This is what we use for our 11x14 couple history canvas. We use the 20 x 16 frame. Then we chose a brown mat (that has an 11x14 opening) and it looks really great finished.
