The Family: A Proclamation to the World Gift Idea

Don't give more stuff this Mother's Day. Give a mom a memory of what it's really all about, The Family. This super easy gift is a memory and a reminder every day.

I don't know about you, but I have a lot of STUFF.

During the last move, we purged a ton, but there are still boxes of stuff in the garage.  Stuff I haven't looked at in a long time.  Stuff that I may want someday.  Stuff that my children can't part with.

To be honest, the last thing I need is more stuff.

I know my Mother and Mother-in-Law would agree.

I would much rather have a Mother's Day gift that was filled with memories.

Since we can't go on an expensive trip or run away for a few days, I decided to make a gift for Mothers day that was filled with family and memories.

I believe the family is the central unit of life.  Without it, we can't find happiness.  Without it, what's the point of it all?

So I wanted a copy of The Church of Jesus Christ's The Family: A Proclamation to the World in my home.

But I wanted it to remind me that even when it's hard (because Dang...this parenting thing has been a little hard lately), my family is the reason for everything.

So I came up with this easy Mother's day gift idea for myself and the mothers in my life.


I started by purchasing a frame that could hold a picture that was 14 x 18 inches.

Then I printed out a whole bunch of pictures of my family and kids doing things that we would remember.  There's a trip we took for Spring Break.  There's the Christmas gift we received to go see The Forgotten Carols.  There's family time at a local restaurant.

Lots of memories.

(I actually set them all up on my print program so I could see what they looked like before I printed and I knew what size to print them.  The pics were different sizes due to where I wanted them on the page, so you'll probably have to play with it.)

And I printed out a copy of The Proclamation from It's Always Autumn.

I removed the back cover and set up the pictures so they would fit around the border of the frame.  I wanted the pictures to act as a mat for the proclamation.

Once I had them where I wanted them, I taped them together and added the proclamation to the center of the frame.
Don't give more stuff this Mother's Day. Give a mom a memory of what it's really all about, The Family. This super easy gift is a memory and a reminder every day.

I put the back on the frame and had an easy and beautiful Mother's Day gift.

I can't wait to give these to my moms as gifts.

What are you giving your mom?
