Mother's Day 2016

Happy Mother's Day Ladies! To all you moms, moms-to-be, newly minted moms (I'm lookin' at you Kerri & Chris!) and even those who 'mother' the nieces/nephews/friend's kids/wandering children you come across, I salute you!! In an effort to help those who love you celebrate the awesomeness that is you, I have compiled a few gift suggestions. Shall we review?

1. Yarn and a place to store it in.
I love knitting and crocheting and you should too. If you don't, you should learn. Just think of all the fun things you could make:

You could take revenge on a person, they wouldn't know it and it would be totally legal.

Anyway, I love to knit and I want more yarn for all the projects I have lined up. But Bo is fussing at me about sharing the bed with hanks of yarn so I need more storage space. These simple sheds should do the trick:

3. Recipe Sorter
I have recipe issues. I have collected thousands over the years (thanks a lot internet!) and now I need someone to sort them into the following categories:

a.) The Faithful: the ones I use on a regular basis, but always forget to put back in the right place so, even though I use it once a month, I can never find it.

b.) The Dream: the ones that I will use one day when my house is filled with people who have adult palates, and not people who think peanut butter and Fluff is a viable dinner choice.

c.) The Delusional: the ones I collected on a whim but really, when am I ever going to use sumac or cook sous-vide?

Sure! Just put that dainty little thing on the counter next to my fry-o-lator.

4. Condiment Cleaner
This will probably be along the lines of the pantry diver that I wanted last year. I need someone to clean the schmeers of Nutella out of the peanut butter jars, the butter out of the jelly jars and the I-don't-know-what out of the butter tub. Don't judge.

This was invented by a Mom who got tired of picking bits of peanut butter out of the jelly jar

5. Style Force Field
This is like that StarTrek cloaking devise only far more useful. On those days when I'm dressing for comfort (which is pretty much every day since my wedding) I still want to look like I have my act together and I haven't completely given up on any attempt to look presentable. The Style Cloak will make this look

Look like this to all see me

Not too hard to do, right?

Well, that's it for me. What's on your gift list?
