I love Mom-- Printables!

Update:  EEk, in my printable from Marjorie Hinckley I left out the word 'I' in the last sentence... I promise I check and recheck, but alas still made a mistake... It is fixed now, sorry for any inconvenience.  If you get the photos in photobucket... choose the Marjorie Pay Hinckley quote, with 'revised' in the title. 
 
I knew I wanted to make a Mothers Day printable, and I went back and forth on what to do.... I have definitely gained a better appreciation for motherhood after being a mom for a while, it is hard work! I choose these quotes because they exemplify what being a 'mom' is to me. I designed these printables wanting it to encompass some of the simple-- often thankless things mothers do everyday, in quiet service to their family. I have many letters from my mother and grandmother that I cherish, these letters provide quiet encouragement and unmistakable love. That is why I chose a handwritten letter as the background.

This first quote is by Marjorie Pay Hinckley it paints a great picture of the mom I would love to be someday. It shows the simple acts of selfless service mothers do each day... I decided to put a clothes line on this printable, to symbolize the often thankless jobs mom do, simply because they love their family. To get a copy of these you can simply click on the image for a full size resolution (10 x8). Or I have put them in this photoshop album here.

This quote is from a Man a greatly admire. It is said that behind every great man is a great woman, and I imagine that Abraham Lincoln had an exceptional mother. I can imagine his mom earnestly praying for her son, just as I pray for my children. I love the sweet tender message of this quote.
To display this printable, I used a inexpensive frame, I painted white, and lightly distressed. I decided to display this printable with a picture of some amazing women in my life... My mom, and my Grandma Lucy. I love this old black and white photo, of my grandmother young and a little goofy. Even though she has been gone for a while, I still love and admire her.. she truly is my guardian angel. I love the picture of my mom and I at Disneyland when I was little. I can think of no greater way of honoring mothers then displaying a picture of these two women.
When I make printables I like to make at least two different designs.... Which is great until I have to choose which one to display in my home. Which printable do you like better?
I hope you enjoy these printables as much as I do. They are absolutely free, however I would love for you to show your support and follow my blog. Also, I love LOVE hearing from my readers if you use my printables, I would love to see a picture. You can email me at ladybirdln10(at)gmail(dot)com.

  18. Oh I like the one about "really living." Mostly because that's my life right now... covered in nose smears, playdough ground into the carpet, dishes never done, house never quite picked up, cheerios adorning the inside of my car... but I don't care because it's all worth it! :)

  33. Hi Carlee. I just found your blog and am so glad!!! I love it. The quote by Marjorie Pay Hinckley is one of my favorites and I used to have it on my frig but it certainly wasn't this cute. I was looking for some wall art to make for my MIL who turned 91 on the 20th and is in a nursing home. She loves to read anything on a wall, tv, tee-shirt but no longer likes to read books. My sisters birthday was on the 18th and I haven't mailed her package yet but I made her a clothespin bag and covered clothespins with scrap paper on one side and typed bible quotes for the other side. I thought it would give her something to read while hanging her clothes out. Now I can include this adorable framed quote to complete the package.

    Sorry for the long letter but I wanted you to know how much I appreciate your post and how timely it is for me.

    Hugs...Tracy :)
