For Men Only... a Mother's Day Give-Away!

For all the men out there who occasionally wait until the last minute to buy that special woman in your life a Mother's Day Gift, here's your chance at redemption! This prize could be given to your wife, your mother, your mother-in-law, your sister -- whoever you care about that you would like to honor on Mother's Day.

I'm having a special 2 day contest Give-Away. The contest will run until midnight, Monday, May 4th. Tuesday morning, May 5th, the winner will be announced. One name will be chosen from all those entered. Don't be shy!

The winner will be able to select ANY item from my Etsy store that is available Tuesday morning. You heard me right! If we can exchange information quickly once you win, I should be able to ship it off on Wednesday -- hopefully, just in time for Mother's Day!

Here are the rules for the contest. I'll make 'em simple:

1) The participants MUST live within the continental U.S. I will provide the postage.
2.) Only men may enter this contest. (You're on the honor system here!) Each MAN that makes a comment below will have his name entered in the contest.
3.) Leave your email address so I can get in contact with you quickly. No way around this one -- if you don't leave an email address, don't bother to sign up! ;o)
4.) In your comment let me know who you would give this prize to...

That's it! The rest is up to you.

(Ladies, I would suggest you give you husbands a little nudge! This is a great chance to win something from my Etsy because it's truly being offered to those who visit my blog on a regular basis. Good luck!)

I am so in! I would give the wonderful prize to my beautiful wife, Shannon. She's your daughter, so somehow you should make it so I win ;)

My wife is very excited about your contest, and I hope she wins. She mentioned your site and the many clever things that you have created, and that she is always inspired by all that you do.

She is an amazing girl who never sits down to a show, or a ride in the car without a project in hand, and most of these she gives away (I call them 'gestures of friendship' - so not a guy thing...) to VT companions, VT ladies, all the ladies that she loves in our family, and many others. I think she is a pretty special lady, and it would make her day to be able to choose something from your store.

PS If Oarelse wins, I choose Blush-a-bye Baby! Wahoo! If you are making one special, I choose passionate purple.
I just deleted the last comment, because I wanted to add the color choice.

My wife loves entering all of these contests. So, I am sitting down and typing how wonderful of a women she is to me. However, her actions speak louder than my words can ever express. She is the mother of our children, a military wife, which means at times she becomes like a single mom. She is patriotic all you have to do is look at our house. Oh did I mention an interior decorator [at least from my perspective] She quilts baby blankets for new born babies. She is an accountant and financial advisor to me [i.e. manages our finances]. She does all this and many more things. However, the thing I love best about her though is in everything she does and has done in her life. She chose me to be her husband. God has truly blessed me with a wonderful wife.

You know Gramee has entered nearly all your giveaways. I know all the kind words i can say will not help her win because she says you choose by picking out of a hat or something like that. I hope my entering her makes it lucky for her! She tells me there are 2 she really wants right now, I hope they will still be there if she wins.

My wife tells me I need to put her name in to win. She also has bribed me with food (I keep telling her food isn't the what I want).
I've been married to her 25 years and still love her as much today as the first day I met her. There isn't a thing I wouldn't do for her so here I seat pleading for her to win....I might get lucky!

I'm in. I'm entering for my lovely wife...Andi. You know where to contact me.

By the way, Bonecrusher is encouraging cheating so he should be automatically disqualified.

Devri said...

My hubby won't enter!! He says he already got me something.. hmmmm

I just have to say all the men who have gotten on here have really shown their love for their wives.

I love that!!!

Thanks for this, your sweet!

If I win, I'd give it to my mother-in-law, who doesn't have a tote yet. I should win because I'm commenting on your blog, in spite of the fact that I'm over my yearly quota. Anyway, hope I win.

My hot wife said she wouldn't talk to me again if I didn't at least enter this one. She uses the bag I bought for her all the time and really wants another to start a collection.
Here's hopin' for a WIN!

Hi J.A H.U.,

My wife is Shawn. Her blog is Swaneesinger. She mentioned to me that you were doing a giveaway, and that I might want to throw my hat into the ring. So here it comes.

Shawn is the love of my life. She is one of the most outgoing people that I have ever met. She is full of Life, Love, and is a giver of herself. She gives of her talents, she gives to her husband, her kids, her friends. We have been married for a little over 12 years. We met in church. We spent every minute together during our courtship (which lasted about 4-5 months, after which I proposed to her. We have been together ever since. Together we make each other complete. We have accomplished much. We have a beautiful 9 year old son together. We will never be rich financially, but if you count the blessings I have received after our marriage, then I consider myself a Millionaire many manytimes over.

I wish all the other husbands luck....

My mother in law admired my wife's tote when she was here for a visit, so I'd like to enter the contest and win one for her. I think she would like the raspberry truffle tote and know she would use it often.
