Fun finds for May, Mother’s Day and more!
May is jam-packed with holidays and events like Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day and the closing of another school year. We’ve curated our favorite finds from Great American Makers to help make your May even more exciting!
In May, the grass is greener, the leaves on the trees are budding, and flowers are blooming. Spring is in full swing and we’re ready for margarita-on-a-patio weather.
With Cinco De Mayo right around the corner, the idea of a gathering with friends, tacos, and margaritas is music to our ears. What’s better than a festive gathering? A festive gathering with the perfect décor! To make your Cinco De Mayo even sweeter, pick up a Tequila towel from The Coin Laundry Print Shop in Bozeman, Montana. Fresh off our Earth Month celebration, we loved hearing Jen uses water based inks and all-natural solvents to screen print her designs. Their Instagram also keeps us entertained!
If kitchen towels aren’t your thing, The Coin Laundry Print Shop also creates tote bags, candles, wrapping paper, and more!
If your family is anything like ours, they LOVE to plant and tend to their garden each year. There is something about homegrown that just tastes better.
For the plant-loving mom, or just the plant mom, look no further than these adorable enamel plant pins from HEMLEVA. Based in Seattle, Washington, artist Samantha Leung is passionate about plants and HEMLEVA is focused on bringing greenery into the home and into our daily lives.
