Things to do with your Mam on Mother’s Day

Spend some quality time with your mam this Mother’s Day

It’s nice to show your love and appreciation for your incredible Mammy on Mother’s Day.  We have some thoughtful gifts that you can surprise this special woman with, but we’ve asked Ann from Button Pics to give us some suggestions of how you can treat your Mam and get to spend some quality time with her too.

Ann is the creator of Button Pics. Her favourite thing to do is to make pictures using old buttons, embellishments and paper craft. One of Ann’s first pictures was based on the theme “Blossom where you’re Planted” (i.e. make the most of wherever you are). This was a favourite saying of Ann’s own mother. It has pride of place in her home and reminds her of her Mother’s wisdom on a daily basis.
