Monday Mother's Day Gift Guide: Guest Blogger Caitlin Creer

This week on Make You Over I will be featuring some of my favorite Mom Bloggers and their Mother's Day gift ideas.  Trust me you won't want to miss out this week, and make sure to tell your husband and children to check out the posts as well for some ideas!  Every item will be under $100.  Don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY!


Caitlin Creer is the talented designer behind Caitlin Creer Interior Design based out of Salt Lake City, Utah.  She has an awesome blog where she talks about her love of beautiful fabrics, vintage pieces, and do-it-yourself projects.  Check out her portfolio HERE.  She even does e-decorating/virtual decorating projects! Dare I say she has inspired me to do the same with fashion?  You can email her at caitlin@caitlincreer.com for rates and details.

I know a number of people who have used Caitlin and have loved working with her. Plus, who wouldn't want to work with a designer who is this cute in real life?!


Okay all you moms out there, let's have a joint confession. We are hard to buy for. And as much as we love the usual handmade (or whatever our husband found at the grocery store late Saturday night) we all really want something that we will love, use, and want to tell our friends about.

What mother wouldn't love a cute family tree to adorn the wall. Young or old, I think this makes a great gift for mothers of any age. I've been meaning to make my own for the longest time, but really when you have kids around, who has time for a craft project like that? Not me. And probably not you.

Here are a few of my favorites from around the web:






Hope you find something lovely wrapped up with a big bow on this special day. 


***Post Edit***
ErinJane has offered to do a giveway of her custom Family Tree worth $50.  You can follow her on Twitter here.   She will customize the tree to how you want with colors, etc.   
Colett who makes the Family Tree Kit is also offering up her Kit worth $15.  
To enter just leave a comment in this post by Thursday May 6th at noon EST.  I will pick two winners!
