Check out this terrific gift idea for Mother’s Day we found on Twitter:  a framed fish tank … so clever!!!  We love the idea of action art and we think moms of all ages will love it, too!!

According the the Glitter ‘N Glue blog, here’s what you’ll need for the project:

– a rectangular aquarium

– a rectangular frame

mounting tape (try ours it’s amazing!)

And then, of course, you’ll need the fish, rocks, and decorations for inside the tank (we have an amazing waterproof epoxy that you can use to attach any castles, trees or coral to the bottom of the tank).  Go to the Glitter ‘N Glue blog for more step by step photos and directions for this project.

We so appreciate creativity and we think mom’s (and even dad’s) will, too!!!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the MOMS out there!!!  You ROCK!!!

This is just about the most exquisite idea we’ve ever seen and just in time for Mother’s Day (and Earth Day, too)!  This Do-It-Yourself idea came directly from the BusyMommy blog we recently ran across.  The blog entry, written by Emily, refers to the vases as “upcycled polymer flower vases”.   The vase in this picture is a clear glass mason jar that has been spray painted white.  Once dry, the artists’ handmade polymer clay flowers are attached using super glue.  To see all of the details for making this project (including the polymer clay flowers) go directly to the BusyMommy blog.

Isn’t it beautiful?  We’re impressed!  What a beautiful treasure to surprise your mom, daughter, grandmother or friend with on Mother’s Day, or any day, for that matter! 

Happy Earth Day 2012 and Happy Mother’s Day!
