Just in time for Mother’s Day: “M is for Mama” Printables + GIVEAWAY!

Y’all. I’ve been sitting on these for a while.

But I’m so excited that I finally get to show you something my incredibly talented artist friend, Lindsay, and I worked on together (well, she did all the work; I just made borderline unintelligible suggestions) months ago.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, we have 3 separate “M is for Mama” printables that you can print out for you or for one of the Mamas in your life (or both!).

These would make great, thoughtful gifts in a pretty frame, and the best thing is that they’re FREE!

More about that in a minute, but for now, let’s take a gander at them, shall we?

1. Chalkboard M is for Mama.


You’ve actually seen this one before when I did my lampshade makeover reveal (you can still vote if you haven’t already!)

This one doesn’t even really need a frame. Just a cute little stand, and you’re good to go. But I think a vintage gold frame with pretty filigreed edges would be gorgeous.


2.  Floral M is for Mama.


This one was originally done in watercolor on cream-colored paper and is just so pretty and feminine.

I love it in this chunky green frame to add a bit of funk to its softness, but you could also go full-on girly with an ivory frame (or, again, gold…because, hello, gold!).

3. Striped M is for Mama.

This one’s a bit more modern, and I love it with a contrasting aqua frame.



Each one is hand drawn and lettered and is a completely unique work of art just for y’all. (P.S. If you ever need a portrait—or anything else—commissioned, Lindsay is beyond amazing. I’ve never seen such realistic renderings and beautiful lettering! You can see tons of her designs and completed works of art here! Be sure to give her like for me!)

And, no, I don’t think you have to have a blog called “M is for Mama” to display this simple declaration of identity. Nor do I think these should only be displayed on Mother’s Day. Honestly, like I said in my original “M is for Mama” post, motherhood is an identity worth claiming and celebrating all year round!

So, how do you get your hands on the prints?
