Mother's Day Gifts

Sunday, May 8th, is Mother's Day this year and it's only a few weeks away.  Mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and other special women in our lives will be celebrated.  If you're looking for a gift, here are three ideas:

First, support www.steveschainofhope.org by purchasing one of these hand-made benches for only $30. Here's a great idea-- roll paint onto the kids hands and put their prints on the top of the bench.  Easy and customized!  They come in pink, blue, lime-green, and buttery yellow.  The tops can be painted in gingham as in the photo to the right.  Contact info@steveschainofhope.org for more info.  Benches can be picked up at Clear Creek Farm on Highway 171 (between Hot Springs and Malvern, Arkansas) or arrangements for delivery can be made in the Little Rock metro area.  We'll need approximately 10 days to custom build/paint your bench so get your order in ASAP for Mother's Day.

Idea number two, a mandyshoptaw.com gift certificate.  For new moms or mommies to be, consider a maternity shoot so you'll always remember this special time and your "baby bump" or you may wish to document your little ones hands, fingers, toes, and nose with a baby-parts shoot.  Baby-part shoots are ideal around 1-month.

Mom can use the gift certificate for one of our late summer-early fall specials shot on location at Clear Creek Farm.  These shoots are perfect for Christmas or holiday cards.  Besides just printing great photos, we can also use your images to make custom stationary, coffee cups, t-shirts, and other gift items.  Think of it this way-- your Mother's Day gift card could help you with your holiday gift giving too!  Contact me at mandy@mandyshoptaw.com for more info.

Speaking of late summer/early fall, here's a sneak peek... we are planning five or so set ups on location at Clear Creek Farm including a girls tea party area, a canoe with antique oars and a barn and/or rustic building facade.  The farm is a wonderfully natural area and ideal for family, couple and children photography.  The shoots will take about 1 hour and clients will get to pick three of the set ups.  We are so looking forward to welcoming many guests out to the farm for what will prove to be a visually inspiring shoot fun for the whole family.

OK, now, the last gift idea: I've been making these initial canvases and they have been getting nice reviews.  They work well as a decorative door hanging or as wall art and for $20 you can have one.  They make great gifts for mothers as well as classroom, music or other teachers.  Let me know your background color and any preferences about the letter design.  Shipping is extra but they do ship well in post office padded envelopes.  48 hours is needed to complete the design.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read all of this and here's wishing everyone a happy and safe spring!
Best Wishes,
