My mom

Today is my mom’s birthday. As I said in a previous post this is one of the first birthdays in a long that we haven’t spent together. So we facetimed, we sang happy birthday and I even opened her present for her. Luckily we will be able to visit her later this week so she can have it then.
The kids helped me make her a knob hanger.

My mom is a crazy fleur de lis fan.

Originally I was going to use three completely different knobs but then I had a change of heart.
The kids helped me paint and sand the gift.

You can find a complete step-by-step tutorial for the knob hanger here.
Here’s our gift to mom.

Keep in mind the screw holes do have covers…


  1. Great idea, and it turned out great! I love the idea of a project the kids can help with, but doesn't look like the kids helped with :)

    1. Isn't that awesome. Really you can't even tell the kids helped out on this one but they get to say they did!

  2. I love it and can't wait to see it and all of you this week. What makes it even better was being able to see pictures of it being made. Thank you so much, I love you all.
