Mother's Day Gift--- Please help!

I NEED your opinion.... I am making gifts for mother's day. I know what I am making for my Mother in law because she has a 2nd house to decorate and requested new pictures of her little kiddos. But my wonderful husband (can you sense the sarcasm) doesn't seem to fancied by them.... I was absolutely in love with the idea and have seen them all over blog land.... I didn't think twice and bought the candlesticks and finials right away!! BUT now thanks to that wonderful husband of mine I am second guessing myself. Tell me what you think (And please just tell me that you like them because they are nearly done) ha! I am combining elements from the following two pictures to create picture plaques for her....)These projects can be found here and here.

So I am painting my wood plaques the same heirloom white color (which I love) and I am using them to display pictures just like the first picture but I am using tiny clothespins with paper mod podged onto the top! Love that part of it. But my picture plaques will be tall like the JOY ones below. And finally my wood is going the opposite way than shown in both pictures! I am sure I have lost you. Pictures to come soon!!!!!! As long as you tell me how much you love them! haha

I think they are so cute Megs! It's such a great idea for a Mother's Day gift and I'm sure your mother-in-law will love it. Boys don't know anything about home decor stuff so Sam's opinion on this one doesn't count!

I think your mother-in-law will love them because you made them. The idea is cute and the homemadeness factor adds the specialness, that makes is a great gift idea.
