Do you know a creative Mom? If a mom can have both young children and time to explore her own creativity, it’s a wonderful thing. But sometimes her creativity takes a back seat to raising her children. All work and no play can result in a grumpy mommy…let’s encourage moms to nourish their creativity when they can to enable them to feel happy and relaxed and still have interests in addition to her amazing family.

Colors Of Asia: An Anti-Stress Coloring Book for Calm and Creativity
While you’re sitting calmly with your cup of coffee, relax and refocus your mind with the Colors of Asia: An Anti-Stress Coloring Book for Calm and Creativity. Open up the book to one of the 90 black and white illustrations, take out your own set of markers or pencil crayons (or use your children’s if that’s what’s handy while you’re feeding your baby) and have some fun!
If you’ve tried adult colouring you’ll know about the fun and benefits of it; if you haven’t yet tried it, what’s stopping you? And if you know a special mom of any age that is in need of some relaxing ‘me’ time, then gift this book to her!
Make this book an even better gift by wrapping it in the gift wrap I have in my cultural gift guide!
501 Enchanting Embroidery Designs: Irresistible Stitchables to Brighten Up Your Life
The old handcrafting arts are making a comeback and I’m in love with this adorable book by Tuttle Publishing! Imagine creating one-of-a-kind clothing for your children by simply embroidering a cute design onto a shirt or pair of trousers. I need to practice as my children are already formulating ideas for me!
Embroidery is a good skill to have, and there’s so much you can do with it! Create beautiful artwork to be framed, personalise tea towels, hand towels, napkins, pot holders, jeans, pillow cases…the options are endless.
This is also a good book to have when you begin to teach your children how to embroider – don’t let this fine art die out!
If you know of a creative mom who needs a little boost to get her started again, or if you’d like to introduce her to a new craft, think of embroidery! If it’s a new experience you could even make a little basket gift and include some embroidery floss, a hoop, and some needles to give a gift to remember!
