I made a couple gifts for my MIL for Mother's Day. The cup mug rug idea came from Embroidery Library's projects. I must admit I got the idea for the birthday and anniversary calendar from one of the groups on Secrets Of. There are a total of 35 flowers, but I didn't know the dates for some people, and there are three new babies coming late this summer. I left three flowers blank. My MIL can fill in the relevant info later.

My MIL has 4 children and spouses, 9 grandchildren and 3 spouses, and by the end of summer will have 6 great grandchildren. I thought this would be a great decorative idea for her to keep all those birthdays and anniversaries remembered!

My MIL called me and told me she loved this gift! She was trying to decide where to hang it!

Pretty! It looks like a knockoff of Louisa Meyer Original's new design.

That's where I got the idea. I created my own. My MIL loves hummingbirds! I should go and thank Louisa Meyer for inspiration even though I didn't purchase her set!

I think you have made the perfect gift. Both gifts look so pretty and what a wonderful way for her to always see her family members any time she wants. It's a beautiful way to list birthdays.

I never would have either. There was an interesting flower freebie on Secrets Of so I clicked on it. It went to Louisa Meyer Originals, and the freebie was from a set of Birthday Calendars. http://www.secretsof.com/content/...
