Mother’s Day Gifts Guide 3 ! She is so into fitness and health and well being!

Has your mother ever wanted to record her life stories? […]

Has your mother ever wanted to record her life stories? Maybe write a biography of all her memories? With Tell Your Story you can record a professional life biography video and be certain your family memories will live on.

www.tellyourstoryuk.com

We believe nothing is more important than the memories we create, the experiences we live and the friends we make along the way. But in time memories are forgotten, lost and possibly never heard again. The stories and tales you hear das a child, that you still hear daily, and that you may one day want to hear again, are the foundation of your family’s legacy and it is important that they are documented and kept for generations to come.

We meet, greet and learn about the stories you want to record, prepare a plan for the life biography, and arrange filming and recording. After this everything is produced in a high-quality feature length film for your family to keep forever. We make sure everything you want is included and present it all in a bespoke keepsake package, with USB digital format, printed DVDs, hardcases and transcribed booklets for you to share with the entire family.

Tell Your Story aims to ensure that when we’re no longer around, those closest to us have something to remember us by, something to look back on and smile, laugh, even cry at. Our memories, stories and experiences are priceless, and we don’t want them to be forgotten. We want our children and grandchildren, years from now, generations down the line, to see, learn from and look up to the incredible lives we lived.
Don’t let your family history be lost in time. If you live in the Midlands and are interested in recording and documenting your life stories, or have family history you or your parents would like to document, please get in touch and Tell Your Story.

Mother’s Day Gifts to spark a conversation and guarantee a reaction! www.jbirdistheword.com

FACEBOOK
J.Bird Cremeans is the artist and owner of “Antique Pet Photos”. She describes her artwork as “Creepy and cute animals dressed in Victorian clothing”. When asked how she came up with this hilarious concept she explains: “Apparently there was a guy name Harry Whittier Frees that would take horrifyingly cute pictures of animals dressed up as people for children’s books. There were the original cat memes before the internet even existed. I didn’t want to get my eyes clawed out so I decided to use my knowledge of Photoshop to create similar images.”
Custom Antique Pet Photos are a huge hit around the holidays and Mother’s Day is a big deal to those who want to give their Mom something related to their pets or “fur babies”. Customers typically contact J.Bird through email at jbirdistheword@yahoo.com, or her Etsy store at www.jbirdistheword.etsy.com to ask about having one made. A person sends in a few pictures of the pet or pets and gets to select the photograph they want them in from an online gallery full of unique and often strange antique photos. The artist then takes the images and “Photoshops” them together meticulously using brushes, layers, and textures to make viewers gasp wondering if they’re real or not.
One customer left this 5 star review on www.jbirdistheword.etsy.com after purchasing and receiving a custom Antique Pet Photo: “Absolutely amazing, the gift was such a hit! My friend LOVED it and the artist was so helpful and talented.”

Another buyer had this to say: “Amazing. No other way to say it.”

J.Bird actually wants you to laugh at the artwork. Go ahead, giggle, snicker, snort, and chuckle. “ I want my audience to see my sense of humor in my work and provoke them to strike up a conversation with me or another viewer about the art itself”. What does it remind you of? Hopefully it reminds you of your pets or your own quirky family. “That owl looks just like my great-uncle!” Humor never goes out of style and when my art is infused with it, the art becomes a joy to see and talk about for years to come. Because I try hard to make my Antique Pet Photos so realistic, that is what makes them so fun to look at. Did I really dress up that cat? How did I get that beard on that dog?”
If you want to see your Mother (or any loved one) laugh hysterically this Mother’s Day, you can commission J.Bird Cremeans for a custom Antique Pet Photo by emailing her here: jbirdistheword@yahoo.com.

A SPECIAL TREAT FOR MOTHER’S DAY: FLOWERBE AND EMILY DAWE CREATE AN ECLECTIC AND MAGICAL SCENE

www.flowerbe.co.uk

FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER

In celebration of Mother’s Day and Easter this March, FlowerBe collaborated with stylist and craft designer Emily Dawe to create a magical setting using flowers and homemade crafts, taking inspiration from nature and the arrival of Spring.

Mother’s Day is one of the most important days of the year and it is a time to show your mum your love and appreciation, to fill the house with flowers and to treat her to a truly special occasion. FlowerBe’s March flower selections have been selected for their pure natural beauty and they celebrate seasonal Spring flowers. All of FlowerBe’s Mother’s Day flower selections will look stunning whether creating a large statement-making arrangement or arranging multiple smaller arrangements around the home.

Mother’s Day and Easter are perfect occasions to treat loved ones and to celebrate together at home, and with this in mind Emily created an enchanting and whimsical table scene with posy vases and vessels filled with FlowerBe’s seasonal flowers including Sweet Avalanche roses, pink delphiniums, and rich pink tulips.

FlowerBe aim to inspire creativity, and Emily’s table setting could easily be created at home with flowers and crafts as a fun activity for all the family. Emily is also a paper craft artist and to add her artistic touch to the table she made some pretty paper origami decorations for each setting. She also made tiny hats to adorn miniature spring lambs and rabbits which sit on top of delicious Easter cakes, and used a quill to hand write each guest’s name. No Easter table would be without eggs and Emily used acrylic paint to brighten up some ceramic eggs and filled little wire baskets with decadent Rococo chocolate eggs.

FlowerBe worked with Emily to create a eclectic Easter mantlepiece. The wreath was made using garden foliage, Tulip ‘Double Price’ and egg yolk yellow Solidago. Emily nestled miniature choclate eggs within the

foliage, and decorated the mantlepiece with small posy arrangements of Oxypetalis, whimsical bottles of larkspur and snapdragon, along with Rococo chocolate eggs, and an Easter bunny with a party hat.

Emily commented: “It was an absolute dream to work with FlowerBe. They provided me with such a stunning selection of flowers to work with, so my job was easy, they really were the starting point for my whole scheme. I’ve never been a fan of very structured arrangements, I like my flowers to look effortless, fun and quirky, and I really think we achieved this. It’s the little finishing touches that really make the difference to make the occasion feel really special – from handwritten place names and mini decorations, to beautiful floral flourishes dotted along the table and mantelpiece.”

Give the gift of flowers this Mother’s Day Choose to give mum a gift of a regular FlowerBe subscription or buy her a one-off arrangement for Mother’s Day. FlowerBe’s March flower selections are available from 26th February and can be ordered from flowerbe.co.uk. Flowers for Mother’s Day will be delivered on Friday 9th March.

FlowerBe’s March Tall selection includes: Antirrhinum ‘White Potomac’, Delphinium ‘Ridis Pink’, Trachelium ‘Lake Powel’l, ‘Sweet Avalanche’ roses, Oxypetalis, Solidago, and Pistacia.

The Short selection includes: Oxypetalis (blue), Tanecetum, Ranunculus ‘Crème Elegance’, Tulip ‘Double Price’, Solidago and Pistachia.

The FlowerBe January Market Special includes stems from both Tall and Short selections.

Lisa Roberts, co-founder of FlowerBe, said: “I love the scene that Emily has created for us this month. She really embraced the bright pastel palette and created a fantasy setting, almost from a children’s picture book. This really brings out the playful, natural beauty of our seasonal flowers this month. This is such a special time of year to show your mum how much she means to you and as a mother myself I would adore it if my children created a wonderful scene for me on Mother’s Day using flowers and homemade crafts.”

A fabulous, fruity addition to toast, bagels or croissants in the morning, Mirabelle Plum combines extremely well with the flavours of almonds, caramel and vanilla amongst others for flavoursome, showstopper cakes.

Unmistakable with their signature red and white gingham lids, Bonne Maman’s conserves, marmalades and compotes are made in France to traditional recipes with only the finest natural ingredients.

Evoking the languorous scents and intense flavours of long summer days, Bonne Maman introduces a mouth watering combination of flavours with new Rhubarb & Strawberry Conserve. Available nationally from March at £2.59 rrp per 370 gm jar. www.bonnemaman.co.uk

Delicately pink in colour, this new conserve from the French conserve specialist is a perfect marriage of two of Britain’s favourite summer flavours. Rhubarb & Strawberry offers the perfect balance of distinctively sharp, quality rhubarb with a top note of sumptuously sweet strawberries, picked at their ripest and then gently cooked in natural cane sugar with a touch of lemon juice and fruit pectin.

A little jar of sunshine adding an aromatic, flavourful hint of natural sweetness to breakfast time, Bonne Maman’s luscious new Rhubarb & Strawberry Conserve is delicious spread on warm French croissants or golden toast and offers an inspired new breakfast taste sensation when swirled in to porridge or spooned on top of fresh yoghurt.

As with all Bonne Maman quality conserves, the all natural ingredients and distinctive soft texture of Rhubarb & Strawberry makes it wonderful for use in home baking; adding moisture to sponges, layering throughout bakes and adding a fruity twist to desserts.

Unmistakable with its signature red and white gingham lid, new Bonne Maman Rhubarb & Strawberry Conserve is available in Asda and Morrisons from March and will be on shelf with other national retailers plus Ocado and independent fine food stores during the Summer, at RRP £2.59 per 370gm jar.
