I don’t have a crafty bone in my body, but I know there are many moms out there who do – including mine! Here’s an idea for a Mother’s Day gift: check out Leisure Arts where you can get some great felt craft books with patterns to add to Mom’s repertoire. Of course, if you are the crafty one in the family, you can make the crafts yourself and have something awesome to give to Mom next year!
