5 DIY mother’s day gifts

I am so excited to share “Mother’s Day Gifts for the Gardening Mom,”   hosted by the incredibly talented Kari of Thistlewood Farms.  It was an absolute thrill to partner with Hometalk and the amazing pool of talent that they brought together.

So, grab your gardening hat because you’re going to be blown away!

The following two tabs change content below.
After 17 years in an elementary classroom, Mrs. Hines retired from teaching to pursue her passions: decorating, writing and homemaking. While her formal education is in teaching, she discovered her talent for design at a young age and is a self-taught decorator. Mrs. Hines' DIY spirit has earned her appearances on the show Deals which airs on the Live Well Network. She continues to teach and inspire on her popular Lifestyle blog, Mrs. Hines' Class. Blogging allows Mrs. Hines to hone her natural skills as a writer and has led to the launch of The Write Touch, an online editorial service. Homemaking is Mrs. Hines' first love. So, when she isn't decorating or writing, you can find her at home watching television with Mr. Hines or trying to keep up with her teenaged daughter.
