Monogram Zipper Pouch

If you loved the chevron beach totes by Jaime from That’s My Letter that I recently shared, then you’ll go gaga for the cutie zipper pouches she created from the remnants. These little pouches would be super handy for holding lip gloss and personal items in a purse or tote or packing make-up and toiletries for travel. What mom can’t use a little more organization in her life?

With Mother’s Day just over a week away, I’m kicking off a few days of fabulous Mother’s Day gift ideas – knock-off style, of course {wink}. First up, we have some pretty rope bracelets created by Kim from Made In A Day. I am in love with the chunky cording, bright colors, and little details that Kim included in all her bracelets. With summer right around the corner, you can’t go wrong with these for Mom!

Definitely not Erika (or me for that matter!).  Erika created an awesome replica by hand painting white lampshades she already had. How fun is this?!?

Chevron Kitchen Mat

When you think of a kitchen mat, I am sure fun is not a word that comes to your mind. However, Laura from Markham Street Designs shows that a kitchen mat can be full of life and personality! Laura took her old foam kitchen mat and painted it to resemble a zigzag mat she spotted in a magazine. Even dishes would be a little more fun standing on this mat {wink}!
