Want to know what’s in all of those Wal-Mart bags????????
I thought I’d help the Happy Hubby know what to give me for Mother’s Day this year, so I took the liberty of going on a shopping spree to buy myself a hundred new pairs of shoes.
Those bags are filled with these…250 to be exact – all different colors and flavors!
Would you believe that those little gems are only $1 each?!?!
Which is perfect for me because I have the honor of being in charge of putting together the Mother’s Day gifts for the Mommies in our church! $1 per mom was our budget!
I made this cute tag to go with the candles…Here is what one looks like all finished!
Only 249 more to go!!!!!
I informed our pastor that he needed to announce the gift using this wording, “Moms, you may feel like you are burning the candle at both ends, but we think no one can hold a candle to you! You are a shining light and an aroma of Him in your Happy Homes.”
I think our pastor thinks I am
nuts super smart.
It’s not too late to grab a candle and print my tag and give this as a sweet little gift for the moms in your world!
Just don’t go to any Wal-Marts in the South Florida area because I cleaned them all out of candles. 🙂
And if you are a member of my church, please feign absolute shock and surprise when you get your gift on Sunday.
Happy Mother’s Day Candle-ing! 🙂
Wow that is super cute and creative! My church always does carnations for the moms. But after they recognize the moms and have them stand up they give an extra flower to all the grandmothers and then they have 6-8 special categories for another flower. For example, “who has the youngest child”, “who has the most children living at home”, who has the most boys”, etc.
What a sweet idea! They look so cute and have such an encouraging message to boot, love it! Oh and your intro to the gift-giving is PERFECT!
Ha Ha! I know Pastor Tom will love saying that. I think they look great! Let me know what you decide and if you need any help Saturday with the remaining 249 of them.
I have forwarded two blog awards to your blog as I find it both really inspiring and fabulous: http://willowatsquidoo.blogspot.com/2011/05/couple-awards-to-share-fabulous.html
