Crafts for Mom

Mother's Day is May 14! I have no clue what I'm going to create for my mom and mother-in-law, so I went through past issues today to gather inspiration. Should I go with jewelry, mosaic, clay or embroidery? So many options. (And so little time!) I hope these 10 ideas are helpful in planning the perfect gift for mom. Click on the images for instructions.
