I am always SOO bad at remembering Mother's Day. I like to think it's because I'm not a mother yet myself-but most likely it's because I'm a spacer. I love the idea of making a fun treat to go along with the cookbook/recipe book you give someone! Totally storing that for future use.
See you tomorrow at Breathing Space!

Every time I see a picture of your Mom I immediately think man! that looks just like my Mom but with blond hair. It always throws me off! :)I sure do love your Mom!
What a cute mamma you have! Love your cupcakes!
Very good idea… But coming from the marvelous, wonderful, talented Shelley, I wouldn't expect anything less than such a thoughtful gift.
How sweet & simple – those are honestly the best gifts EVER. It's the little things that make the day – a sweet handdrawn card, a few extra kisses, and a little extra time in bed… that's all I'll ever need for Mother's Day!!!
Very cute and thoughtful gift! Now my question is, what materials did you use to make that adorable card?
ok but how about those fabulous plates!? super cute card. and adorable enromous smiles from the littlest in the last picture! I'm a total spoon, spatula, knife licker too, it's encouraged!
I have that Martha book and the brownie cupcake recipe is my very favourite! I've made them loads, at least over 50 times! Hope your mom enjoyed them 🙂
I love themed gifts…cupcakes and the book!
Happy Mother's Day!!
We'll definitely be celebrating this year… big time. May 13th just happens to be my little girl's FIRST birthday! And coincidentally, my first Mother's Day! I'm feeling a BBQ and backyard fun for a wonderful party.
I'm so with you on the cake mix – one of my children didn't like cooked cake, but would eat half a bowl of raw mix. 😮
But please tell me more about the "stuff" you are pressing into the middle of that mix? What is it? My DS is in LA at he moment and I need a detailed description of what to send him to buy! 🙂 Thank you.
So sweet (pun intended)! I may have to copy this idea for my mom (and/or mom in law). And your mom is beautiful by the way, I can see where you get it from. 🙂 yep, she gotta from her momma..hehe
This is such a GORGEOUS blog post. You are seriously such an inspiration to me, a new blogger. Your photography is amazing. P.S. I found the same floral scrapbook paper at Michael's and love it! It's so cheerful! 🙂
Those cupcakes look amazing!
I've ate A LOT of batter in my life and I'm still kicking! That reminds me of a pin:
This year I'm buying my mom a UV lamp for doing Shellac nails because I do hers every week and I'm getting sick of it. She can do her own damn nails! Teach a man to fish, right?
AHH, how sweet!!
I just bought the book a few days ago on Amazon, its giving my the courage and must-do to make my sons cupcakes for his 1st bday party next month, oh and I also bought those same cupcake liners, lol I'm pulling out the greens, blues, oranges and yellows so they feel more boy at his party:)
Happy Early Mothers Day
What a sweet post! Literally! lol Hmmm perhaps i'll bake some with my 4 year old twin girls for grandma for mother's day 🙂
So cute! I bet mom loved it. Now I need to think of something for us to do.
Such a sweet blog posting and love the girls! Happy Mothers Day.
First of all those cupcakes sound AMAZING!! 🙂 And what a fun gift the book made I'm sure!
So sweet! Love it! Thank you for all the sweet ideas!
Yummy — what sweet memories you're making here Shelley — thanks for sharing. Your sweet girls and mom are gorgeous! 🙂
yummers! those cupcakes look so good. The card's pretty adorable too. Since I just started reading your blog and love it (put it on my blogs best reads)I have a question. Does Cason always wear a tie to cook? I'm likin this trend!

CUTE CUTE CUTE. I love this idea!
Well – YUM!!! Those look delish! I am laughing at the "kids after church choices." A friend and I were just talking about that today…that's the one day where the crazy outfits rule, comfort is king!
Such a cute post Shelley! And I love the after-church-comfy-clothes 🙂 That's the best part about Sunday afternoons! How lucky you are to live close to your mom!!
Such a cute idea! I love your creativity. Question, how are you editing your pictures now? Which editing options do you use? What kind of camera do you have? Your pictures are amazing!!! I hope you have a great mothers day 🙂
Such a cute post! I'm sure the cupcakes were yummy! I have that book too (although I haven't actually USED it, it was fun looking at all the picutures). I'm glad that you showed how to make that fabulous card…I would not have thought of putting all those elements together even though I have the stuff to do it.
I read your weight loss story on your blog. You have inspired me…I joined a gym yesterday!
OMGOSH Shelly what adorable girls you have and a beautiful Mom!! I hope both of you have a fantastic Mothers day!!! I want to come play at your house sometime!! "wink wink"!!LOL!
Oh my gosh, your girls are adorable. They could probably give dirt to their grandmother and she would love it. Those cupcakes look sooo yummy. And I'm all for trying out the goods when they're homemade. My dad used to tell us kids that he had to try the goody first to make sure it wasn't poisonous. It was a joke of course, but a great way to get first dibs on treats.
What a fun Mother's Day gift idea! The cupcakes look yummy and the card you made is beautiful. You're right, too, that it really is the thought that counts.
I am a mom who let her kids lick the bowl and beaters. They survived as did I . That was always such a treat to get to help and then know that the beates were all yours. I come from a family of seven kids and sometimes the others were too lazy to get off their butts and help but I love to bake so I was in there like a dirty shirt.
My girls are now in their late twenties and both are avid bakers. They still lick the beaters. As do I.
Your mom looks so young. She has a lovely family.
I LOVE cake batter off the beaters & spoon, and it's one of my son's favorite treats! I ate it all during childhood and still do, and have never had problems with raw eggs. I REALLY like your beautiful card – I'm inspired to make some cards for next week's Teacher Appreciation! Thanks for the help! 🙂
You have the cutest family – especially your baby girl in that yellow hat! Happy Early Mother's Day 🙂
Brilliant post, so much in it, thank you!..and your mother! gosh she must have had you when she was 6!, Sally xx
I've been following your blog for a while now and I get a kick out of it every time you post something (I also turn green with envy at your DIY savviness, but we don't have to go there). The card you made was super cute – made me think that you'd get right on board with a company like Stampin' Up! based out of Riverton, UT. You seem to be a natural at crafting in general. Great post, as usual!
HI – I grew up eating/licking the spatula, the bowl, the mixer thingy's; anything I could get my hands(mouth) on that had chocolate or ANY cake batter for that matter. Occasionally, I still do and I am (sssh) 53. So go to it girl! yum!
I headed over to Michael's today and so disappointed they didn't have the cupcake book. 🙁 Can you tell me where you buy your twine and also where I can find packing paper? I must wrap presents w/it soon! Thanks so much!!!
You're amazing. That's all there is to it.
Love the plates! Where did you get them?
Cupcakes look delish too!
Thank you for posting this. It’s exactly what I was looking for!

I love your yellow and grey flowered dishes. Where did you get them? So cute!! 🙂
How cute! You have such a sweet little family! And those cupcakes look amazing! And I really think I need those cupcake liners, too cute!
Happy Early Mother's Day to you and your Mom!
Just wanted to let you know, I just googled "Top home decor blogs" because I'm looking for naming inspiration/SEO curiosity…and you were the SECOND LINK! (I was already a reader :P)
Get on with your bad self! Happy Mother's Day.
Awww this is such a sweet gift idea! Your mom looks positively delighted!
Where did you get the yellow and grey dishes? I need them!!
I need those yellow and grey dishes! Where did you find them?
This makes me wish I lived close to my mom.
This make me wish I lived close to my mom to surprise her with baked goods. The best presents come from the kitchen!
