Use your love of technology for Mother's Day
April 23, 2009
For most moms, something from the heart may be better than something bought at an expensive store. Just think of the small clay bowl you made for her in grade school. And it's probably still sitting on her desk or displayed on the bookshelf.
There's still time to make Mom something special before the May 10 holiday, but don't wait until the last minute.
While creating a scrapbook or having the kids make their own greeting cards is always a good option, it may be time to be a bit more creative with your craft. These days, people of all generations are internet savvy, so why not create your mom a video she can watch on the computer?
Most digital cameras have a video function, which makes it easy to shoot and transfer the file onto your computer. The video can be as simple as asking different relatives to wish the matriarch of your family well to a funny scripted piece incorporating all of the young ones.
No matter what you choose, Mom will likely treasure the video and hold on to it, much like the way she kept your misshaped clay bowl.
