Loving Mother Raises Family - and a Ruckus if Family Misses Mother's Day!

There is no need in this day and age for any loving mother to "raise the roof" - be warned that Mother's Day takes place on May 9th this year!  A wee bit of planning on your part in the remaining few days will go a long way to saving you from a world of pain! 

Do not forget to: a) make or purchase an appropriate card to express all the love you have in your heart for the woman who "brung you up" - feelings you always have, but the words that may only be said at this time each year, and b) make or purchase a token of your affection for your Mum. 

Hell hath no fury like a passive-aggressive mother scorned! (Love ya, Mom!  And yes, I'm safe - I think - she has not yet made it onto the internet, so will likely never see this and take it the wrong way!) Do your part now to recognize the years of work she has put in on your behalf.  She may say she's "fine", and "don't waste your money on me", and "I really don't need a thing" but don't believe her - this is ancient code for "let's see what they really think of me".  You MUST get her something.

Luckily, we can offer a multitude of options in many price points for your Mother at Textures Craftworks, and if you wish, our helpful artisans will make suggestions of one-of-a-kind gifts for your one-of-a-kind Mom!  And if you don't see the exact right thing in the exact right size or colour on our shelves, we also offer gift certificates so your Mum can make her own selection, or many of our artisans will create a custom piece to your exact specifications!

Here are a few ideas to get you started:
