Fantabulous Mother's Day Giveaway

Mother's Day (the one day a year we moms get to put our feet up and be waited on hand and foot by hubbies and little munchkins - this is far more important than candy or flowers because it is all about the appreciation!) is fast approaching.

My mom passed away 13 years ago and really not a single day goes by that I don't miss her and remember some nutty thing she did or said that still makes me smile - she was a bit of a wiseguy and not a girlie girl in any possible way, but in honor of Mother's Day I am giving away something that my mom (and girlie girl moms) would love.

WHAT YOU GET:

You get a gorgeous 15"X15" hanging jewelry organizer! This one is a brand new fabric pattern that I am just loving and made of repurposed pine. It makes the perfect place to hang your jewelry, notes and little what-nots and you AND your mom will just love it.



HOW TO WIN:

Leave a comment about the favorite Mother's Day gift you either received or gave OR check out either of my shops and let me know of a favorite or least favorite item or something that you would like to see me offer - Uncorked Shop or Polarity Shop

For some big time additional entries:

(10) Blog about this contest, linking to this post

(10) Follow my blog

Let me know if you have done these things so I can give you additional entries.

DRAWING:

5PM EST on Mother's Day, May 10th!



FREE UPGRADE to priority shipping on any U.S. jewelry order in either of my shops this weekend - just note UPGRADE SHIPPING in the comments to seller section of your order

ooo cat, count me in! What a beautiful piece - love the fabric. I know my mom would love it, too.
Let's see, Im not a mom yet, and wasnt when I was 5 but I still remember on mother's day when i was 5, my dad gave my mom some jewelry and gave me a small heart shaped ceramic box with a red top and inside was a necklace made of little red plastic hearts. I still have and cherish them both.

I also follow your blog! Ill twitter this during prime time today and let you know when I do.

The nicest gift I ever received on Mother's day...When after a Mother's day as usual with only guys around my Mother In Law hugged me and said "Thank you for today. Without you it wouldn't have been much of a day" and I hugged her back telling her "I can say the same thing back" My mother was no longer alive and it was my pleasure to celebrate the day with her.

Sherry said...

I lost my mom too, only 2 years ago, so it is a bittersweet time for me. My husband and son always make up for it though.

My favorite gift is when I get coupons for the most wonderful things, like taking the dog out when it's below freezing!

I can't pick just one thing because I love everything you make, Cat.

HI!!!!

Let's see... it's near impossible to pick a favorite. Especially considering there's two shops to drool over...

However, I remember using these beauties in a treasury almost a year ago and I've coveted them ever since :)

What a fun giveaway!! I'm so glad I found you! I'm going to do both...Mother's Day gift: My three year old son made me a special gift with his nana - a personalized coffee cup (I love coffee). They did this last year when my husband and his daddy had been away for 4 months (military). It's now been 16 months and we still miss him more than ever - but the extra love I got from my son last year while daddy was away was a BIG plus!!

I LOVE the So TACKY 2 CORKboard Pushpins - I could jazz up my workplace a bit with these!!

Love your shop!

ohhh Cat, wonderful giveaway!

I am not a mom yet and I too lost my mom, 5 years ago, but i do remember buying her gifts for Mother's Day that I liked as well so that I can share them with her. Ha, that sounds funny and greedy all at the same time! oh well.

I have been a follower of your blog and my favorites in your shop are the Jewelry boards, I have wanted one for some time now and I love all of your lockets. Your artist collaboration lockets are such a great idea!
thank you

KokoonLady said...

My favorite Mother's Day gifts have been and continue to be the handmade cards from my daughter. She is a budding artist and fashion designer with creativity out the wazoo. I find it fascinating to see how her creativity and artistry has matured and evolved over the years.

wintam said...

I think the best gift I gave my mom was a book she was looking for for over 30 years, in which her favorite uncle, who perished in the holocaust is mentioned. It was as moving to give it as it was (I guess) to receive it.

Mrs. Tracy said...

My favortie Mother's Day gift was when I was in the hospital with my husband for 2 weeks and my boys were staying with my mom. She brought them to see mn mother's day nad they brought flowers. I remember watvhing them walk through the parking lot holding them. they were trying to hide them behind their backs...but they were too big and stuck out on both sides ;o}

Stephanie said...

The favorite mother's day gift I've ever given (as I am not a mother yet, I can't pick a favorite I've received :) was handmade for my boyfriend's mother... we took a picture frame and removed the glass. We printed a picture of a beautiful tree in a sunset and printed it on canvas, and mounted that on foam board, that we then put in the frame. We found Pins with little enamel leaves on the tip, and took itty bitty mini picture frames of each family member and strung them with wire. Each family member had their own little frame and hung at the appropriate place on this family tree. She cried when we gave it to her and it now occupies a proud spot in the living room :)

Kathleen W. said...

This is so beautiful, and I love how you have that little vial with the pins in it hanging on the frame.

The best Mother's Day gifts I made for my mom and mother in law were little hidden pens. I secured a silk flower to a pen with floral tape, painted a flower pot, stuffed the pot with styrofoam and covered it with moss, then put the pen into the styrofoam so it looked like a flower in the pot. I fancied it up with a ribbon and some other things. My mom and MIL loved them, especially because they were decorative but also were practical, especially when there was no pen to be found in the house.

I have been an admirer from afar for too long! I did make my bff buy 2 of your necklaces for xmas gifts this year--they were well recieved! i esp enjoy the concept of your polarity bracelets and rings--because who can ever really pick just one of anything? how nice to be able to "switch out" when your mood changes!

StunningAnnaK said...

One year when I was about 6 I did a drawing for my mom and had a fused on a plate. She still to this day displays it with pride and laughs until she cries when she tells guests about it.

You see I was very into feet and gave everyone feet as hands...

Even more funny now that I am pursuing 2 art based majors in college.

My favorite present so far has been handmade cards by my four stepdaughters. It meant more to me than anything I have ever received. We worked hard, creating a special present for their own mother and i never realized they were all making something for me as well. Needless to say, I was tearful mess.
