Mother's Day Giveaway!!!

OK. I have a confession...I fell asleep before midnight! But, I woke up this morning, and checked the blog follower count to see that we made it to the goal of 130 followers!!! This means that along with the other two giveaways that I'm involved with right now, I'm going to do a MOTHER'S DAY GIVEAWAY on MY blog as well!

To be honest, I wasn't really sure that we'd make it to the goal...So I haven't even thought about what I would giveaway as the prize yet. Instead of taking the time to think about it, I need something to post RIGHT NOW so that this giveaway can begin.

So here it is: Winner will receive $10 credit in our shop! This is going to be a quick giveaway, because I would like to be able to ship the prize out to the winner in time for Mother's Day, if possible.

Here's how it works:

1. You have to be a follower of my blog.
2. I'll be posting Questions from now until this Sunday, May 2nd. For each comment left, you will receive one entry for the giveaway.
3. You can earn bonus entries, but you have to come back and let me know that you've done the following:
***Give our shop a heart! - 1 entry
***Give an item a heart and tell why. - 1 entry for each item hearted

The Mother's Day Giveaway ends Sunday, May2nd. I will be posting the winner on Monday, May 3rd at about 12:00 noon (Pacific Time) or a little earlier. Winner needs to contact me by email within 24 hours with choice of item/items totaling $10 (if the amount goes over $10, then I will make a special listing for the difference). Shipping will be free. Giveaway is open to all U.S. residents. International followers may enter too, but please keep in mind your prize might not arrive so quickly. =)

FIRST QUESTION:
What's one great way you celebrate your mother?

MY answer: I love to just call my mom to say hi and let her know that I care. So many times life just gets busy. As I've said before, sometimes it can be the smallest things that matter the most. A simple phone call to keep in touch can make all the difference. Even if it's just me leaving her a message, because I know she'll get it. =)

Hi Just B,
I'm now following your blog. My first answer to your question is this:
though my mother has passed away, I think of her on mother's day and say a prayer of gratitude for my life. Then I promise to take good care of myself for her. : )

I celebrate my Mom by sending her a special card and calling her. Her birthday is a few days before Mother's Day so I usually send a huge flower arrangement to her home also. She is a very special lady.

I made sure my Mom could stay in her home and enjoy her last years. She was a total care but with the help of nurses,meals and so many wonderful aides she stayed home ,a home she loved. I would have everyone over on Sundays for dinner so she could enjoy us all around her! My Mom passed in Aug ,this is the 1st Mothers Day without her.
Mother's Day I always had a huge and fun day for her,flowers and plenty of pictures! She loved being pampered

My Mother passed away several years ago. I think of her all the time. I always called her on Mother's Day - she lived in another state. I would send her flowers and a card. I miss her.

To all my wonderful followers, you're the greatest!
To those who have lost their mothers, I am so very touched that you share your comments. I am fortunate to still have my mother in my life, but if she was not here, I would always remember her every day, and especially on Mother's Day. Thank you for commenting.

You are all so great, and I am glad to have you as readers, followers, and friends!

What is one of your favorite movies?

Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind, hands down.
Its so sad but happy at the same time...
For one to just up and erase someone like that from their memory because they dont want to hurt or feel ...its pretty deep.

I love to take my dog, Koda, my husky, to the creek.
Also, I like to see all the pretty grass and flowers that are in season.

Jinx said...

What is your favorite flower and why?

An orchid. they are sooo delicate. you have to be careful taking care of them or they will die fast.
I think if you can take care of them the right way, then you could probably grow anything. haha.
