A personalized Mother's Day (or any occasion) gift!

Wednesday, May 17, 2017

I knew I wanted to get my mom and MIL a special, personalized gift for Mother's Day this year. Having a new baby in the family makes gift giving much easier because hello, grandmas can never have too many framed pictures am I right?! I decided to go a different route for Mother's Day and use Vivi's sweet footprints to make a personalized gift for them.

We headed to our local Painted Peacock with images in my head of paint flying everywhere, a screaming baby and a less than ideal experience and I could not have been more wrong. The staff was SO helpful and clearly they had done baby footprints on pottery before. The way it works is you choose your pottery, pay a small studio fee to use all the paint and supplies, then go to work. We decided on a large serving plate so they could both display it and use it for serving food.


 I am thrilled with the way it turned out and both my mom and MIL loved it, duh! How could you not love something with tiny baby footprints on it?! My only regret is not making one for myself :(

  1. It's precious!!! I'm so glad to know there is a pottery place there. We used to go to one in Raleigh but it closed. I have the cutest hand and footprint platter for Christmas from jack and want to do an updated one w both boys!! You've got to go back and make one for yourself. It's a precious keepsake!!
