Mother’s Day always leaves me uninspired. So when OTTOinSITE asked me to create a Mother’s Day craft, I was not as pleased as usual when I get to create.

No wonder I dread this day for the whole year. Not that I don’t love my mom. En contraire. And I do know what hobbies she has and what she likes. But everything feels too forced and simply not good enough. Maybe I love her too much? Well, this is the story I keep telling if anybody asks me.

Where has the time gone when a hand painted picture and some wild flowers were enough?! Now that I think about it, maybe I can apply the whole concept to a DIY: heartfelt, inspired and personal. That’s what it should be. So I was very smitten with myself when I stumbled upon the idea of mini magnets. This DIY can be made with your own personal pictures and is bound to put a smile on your mother’s face.

Who’s ready to be the child of the year?! Well, if so, follow the instruction on OTTOinSITE for these DIY mini photo magnets.

If you have any siblings: include them in the process of choosing the pictures. This is really fun – walking down memory lane and laughing at your old selfs and the hideous fashion styles back in the days. Oh. My. God. Or as one of my sisters put it: “Well, at least we can say, we turned out alright. Considering.”

Well, considering all these looks and the faces we pulled! Teenage days are gruesome. All these pictures you see: these are all real-life from my family. It makes me laugh just to look at them now.

I just hope that my mum has just as much fun.

Do you already have a Mother’s Day gift? If so what it is? Please inspire me for next year. I can’t start early enough.

Now. Carry on!
