  1. Ooooh! Great round up, Erica! I especially love the little thumb print necklace or the butterfly feet painting. I made a rose painting for my mom in 1st grade and she still has it til this day. It always made me feel so good every time she brought it out at Mother’s Day.

    1. Thanks, Jyl! My Mom still has many of my homemade gifts in and around her house. It is always fun to see those things and how special they were/are to her! The thumbprint necklace has been shown to my husband a few times!! Huge hint!!

    1. Can’t wait! In case I forget, please remind me here or @ericabuteau on Twitter so I can promote on my SM channels!
