Mother's Day Contest

Mother's Day is just around the corner....

Does she have everything already?  Are you looking for something...errrrr...simply different than the standard go-to ideas?  Perhaps she is looking for receiving an experience over an egg-timer.....relaxation over a rolling pin...a facial massage over fudgy-fondue?

Let's talk.

If you're reading this...I know you'll contact me already about the faces I made in photos but don't worry - karma has paid me back with a daughter who does the same thing.
p.s. thanks for the Dramamine.

But seriously -the time spent in the 80's & 90's spent flying with my mom and step-dad were pretty cool and she's a pretty neat lady:)

So this Mother's Day I want to hold a little contest.

I want to give away a series of gift certificates and the only thing I ask in return is for you to shout it to the mountains

  1. Email me a short story explaining all the reasons. This is not restrictive... your mother may be passed on, it may be your mother in law you want to write about or a mother-like role model in your life. Whoever it is, I want to hear it, share the love!

2. Winner of the "essay contest" gets a gift card!
In fact, there will be several winners! 1st place = $50
2nd place = $25
PLUS! The first 5 people to submit an entry will automatically get a $15 gift certificate to my neighbor downstairs Lilybee's Floral Studio!!! So even if you don't win a gift certificate from yours truly, you can still get yo mama some fresh flowers!

This contest will run from April 1st through the 19th. All entries must be submitted via email by the end of the day on the 19th. Selection will be based on how much you make me cry, lol, just kidding - but I ask you to be real and authentic as I may be posting these submissions online (names will be abbreviated into initials for privacy).

Also remember that gift certificates are always available should you care to simply purchase without sending me an entry in this contest!

Should I be on maternity leave, I will arrange to either mail the card to you or for an assistant to meet you at the studio.
