Welcome to the Thanks Mom Blog Hop!! Thanks for joining us to enjoy the wonderful crafty inspiration in honor of moms everywhere from the talented designers in this hop.
You should have arrived here from Jenny's Blog. If you missed the beginning of the hop, please go back to the start of the hop at Debbie's blog so you don't miss any of the amazing projects along the way. Also, there is Grand Prize Blog Candy being offered, so you want to check out her blog to get all the details on how to win!!
I am busy graduating from my master's program and spending time with my family, but I didn't want to forget about my blog family...so here is the hop!! I know I've been away a lot with school and moving and such, but I enjoy crafting and really wanted to do something crafty. You'll have to forgive the simplicity (sometimes, simplicity is the way to go), but I have limited resources as some of my stuff is boxed :)
I decided to make an explosion box for my mom. I am going to fill it with pictures and special quotes of us. I am SO EXCITED that I get to spend mother's day with my mom. I live away from my parents, so I do not get to see them very often. However, my mom is coming in for my graduation and I get to spend time with her. I made the box for her to take with her as something small to keep and quickly see all of our pictures. I found awesome instructions for how to create an explosion box here. Be sure to check it out!!
