The emotion experts at Hallmark have come through again with perfect, perfect, perfect Mother’s Day ideas!

My favorite is the  Recordable Artwork: Canvas Art Kit.  

For mothers, grandmothers, aunts… anyone, this makes a wonderful gift.  It was very fun to make it and wonderful to know that I will be able to enjoy this for years to come.  Not only do I have a beautiful piece of art, created by my six year old daughter Rosie, but I have her voice – recorded to tell my about the painting – recorded to create a forever keepsake.  There is a piece of great quality canvas that slides into an attractive black frame.  Crayola washable paints are included.  The frame has a built in recorder to capture a 40-second message from your little artist.  It’s available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores and anywhere Hallmark products are sold for $14.95.

We extended the art to include Mommy, Daddy, Grandma and Grandpa.  We each had a part in creating this garden.

Because we are not the best artists… okay, we are true amateurs!  We practiced on paper first.  Once we got our layout and practiced a little, we started painting the canvas.

Making the grass

Even though a brush was included in the set, we used fingers and finger prints to create our garden.

My daughter inherited her mother’s control issues, hehehe, and wrote a script for the recording…

Here’s the final product with part of the recording… sorry it’s sideways!


Another great idea from Hallmark…  I can’t wait to sit down with my daughter on Mother’s Day and create, Conversations to Keep: Recordable Book.  

·         Filled with open-ended questions that spark imaginative answers, “Mom and Me” and “Grandma and Me” Recordable Books capture the answers only a kid can give.

·         Within the book, kids record themselves answering a variety of questions, such as “If you and mom were aliens, what would you look like and what would you name your planet?” Or, “What does Mom do to show she loves you?”

·         Conversations to Keep: Recordable Books give Mom or Grandma a fun and easy way to capture the true personalities of her (grand) children so she can always remember that little voice and their time together.

·         Available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores for $24.95.

You have to see these cards!!  They were too cute to just take pictures, gotta be a video!


Mother’s Day Greetings (A variety of 3 Mother’s Day cards)

  • Hallmark is taking Mother’s Day cards to a new level with a variety of innovations, including light and animation, as well as pop-ups with mechanics so complex that a card designer works with a Hallmark paper engineer to design and construct it. Did you even know there was such a thing as a paper engineer?!
  • We’ve attached a photo so you can check out some of these features. With these innovations, you can give a Mother’s Day card that has a thoughtful sentiment and an element of surprise – a card mom will want to hold onto for years to come.
