A perfect gift for the hard to give to…Finally, something for my Mom!

When giving a gift, like everyone else, I try and put a lot of thought into it…whether that means picking the perfect already made gift basket or making something handmade, I always try:-)

At one of the craft fairs I participated in this fall, a customer recommended turning my peg people into place card holders.  I IMMEDIATELY knew what I wanted to make for my mom the minute the idea was mentioned. 

My daughter and I went through and decided who should be who.  I went to work painting pegs, my daughter went to work painting the box.


We cannot wait to give my mom her present!!!  This is going to be so much fun at big family meals!  No more guessing who is going to sit where or searching for place card holders.  Eeeeee!!!!!!!!

I also cannot wait to see how my niece and nephews react!!!



Hi! My name is Dominique and I'm lucky enough to be the wife to my True Love and mother to a little girl and a little boy. I grew up in the Midwest but have loved living in NC, our new home. I'm actually an Industrial Engineer by schooling, but am now a domestic engineer(Stay-at-home-Mom) and feel very blessed to have this job. I have always loved the challenge in making the most of things...whether it's figuring out that a filing cabinet , a $10 piece of countertop and a few scraps of wood can be turned into a desk, that a curtain sheer, some ribbon, and a square piece of fabric can be transformed into an Elsa-like dress, or how to provide an interesting lunch for my little girl who is in a peanut free classroom. I love to figure things out and to create. I hope you enjoy reading my posts. I hope that my posts will inspire you to create. I hope that with my posts you will see that They Will Love Your Effort, whether things turn our perfect or not;-)
