Mother's Day Giveaway! - WINNER ANNOUNCED!

UPDATE: I finally got out the trusty 'hat' a.k.a random number generator to pick a winner of the mother's necklace and the winner is Esther from Essie's Blessings. Congrats mama! I can't wait for you to have your mama bird's nest around your neck!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there! I wanted to do something special to say thank you to all of you who have walked along side me, sending encouraging tweets, emails, leaving comments, and making me feel like I'm not the only one who struggles sometimes as I muddle my way through motherhood. I so cherish the support and friendship with my online and in real life friends and as a way to say thank you I want to offer to make one of you a mother's nest necklace similar to these:

To enter please leave become a public follower of my blog and include a comment on this post with your favorite memory of being a mom as well as how many eggs your next would include. (I will work with the winner to pick the appropriate colors from my stash of light green, pink, white, and possibly cream beads.)

Earn an extra entry by tweeting about the giveaway and another one for blogging about it. Don't forget to leave a comment for each entry.
 Contest will be open until 8pm Friday Central Time. 

Then as soon as I can get to a craft store I'll replenish my supply of wire and get started on making a unique nest with just the right number of egss for you!

Good luck and Happy Mother's Day!!!

Disclosure: I am not a professional jewlery maker (I learned how to make these necklaces from this site).


  1. I'm a public follower of your blog. I have two eggs in my nest. And my favourite memory of being a mom is watching my two kids play together, love on each other, and the way my oldest looks out for my youngest and the way my youngest always wants to be with my oldest! Thank you for the opportunity to win this lovely necklace.

  2. I'm a public follower, of course! My favorite memory as a mom is seeing my kids cuddling on the couch together. A close second is seeing them hug each other. Yesterday Emma kissed Ethan's arm as he walked by--I melt! Oh! And hearing them speak about their faith? Even better!

    My nest has three eggs. Love you, friend!

  3. I blogged about your giveaway. You'll find it at the end of this post:

    And I would tweet about it but I only have seven followers so I don't really think that's a fair way for me to earn an entry. :)

  4. Wow, those are really pretty Carrie! YOu are a talented lady. Sorry I've been so blog absent, life seems to be whizzing by. I'm trying to preserve each moment I can with the kids and spend WAY less time on the computer. Unfortunately Facebook is on my phone...
