What better Mother's Day gift than one created from your own kids' artwork?
I will never turn down a dozen roses, although I also have a soft spot for the handful of dandelions my son proudly presents to me as a token of his affection.

If you're anything like I am, you've probably got a lot of your kids' precious artwork boxed up and you're saving it for, well, who knows what.
