Mothers Day is one week away. I am always overwhelmed with gratitude on Mothers Day. I have been blessed with four amazing children! And I also am blessed to be surrounded by many amazing women! My Mom, my Grandmothers, Mother-n-laws, Aunts, my Mom’s friends who are like mothers to me, friends, different women at church and in my community. All mothers.
All inspire and bless me daily!
Here’s how you can enter: GIVEAWAY CLOSED
Several years back I felt compelled to reach out and let some of these women know, how much they meant to me. I wanted to encourage them, and let them know that I noticed what awesome mothers, grandmothers, and aunts they are! Because sometimes being a mother can be a little thankless.
I bought a box of Day Spring cards, then I made a list of women. I told each one exactly how they inspired me and how BLESSED I was to have them in my life. I hadn’t intended this to be something I would do every year, but when one mother told me, with tears in her eyes, that the card I had sent her was the only card she had received for Mothers Day that year….first I went and kicked her husband in the keester and then I decided I needed to try and do this every year. Sometimes, the women I send cards to, are women I hardly know, but they came to mind so I send them a card. (I was just kidding about the keester part by the way…but I thought about it.)
Over the last year and a half this blog has put me in touch with so many amazing women! (and some amazing men too!) I wanted to do something to tell you how much you bless me everyday. You encourage and inspire me in so many ways. I don’t know what I would do with out you! Really! No foolin! Ok, I’m starting to tear up. Don’t make me cry!
One of the amazing women that this blog has connected me with is Robin. Robin was one of my first readers. (Bless her heart.) We met and have gotten together several times. Robin is designing my new adventure…Eat 2gather…more about that later. Robin is not only a wife and mother, she is also a Graphic Designer/Web Designer, AND she has her own jewelry line Design Smith, which you can check out on her Etsy Store. God has put some REALLY incredible women in my life, sometimes I have to pinch myself I can’t believe how blessed I am!
Because you all are so awesome, and I am so blessed to have you in my life! I asked Robin if she would be willing to do a giveaway! She said YES! She created the two beautiful pendants. I couldn’t choose which one to give away. I love them both! So if you win, you get to do the choosing for yourself.
You don’t need to be a mother to win!

Sheil-I love all the jewelry on DesignSmith, they are so cute!! But the #1 reason I am commenting is because I have been one of the lucky ones to recieve one of your Mother's Day cards and I just want you to know that I truly appreciate that! It is so nice to know that someone notices all your hard work and takes the time to tell you. You are a great mom. Happy Mother's Day to you.

I like all of Robin's jewelry but especially have my eye on her Proverbs friend necklace for a dear friend of mine. She is a talented gal. She introduced me to your blog so now I enjoy your talent too!

My favorite piece of hers (although it was pretty hard to choose) is the Hand Stamped Namaste-Om Yoga Pendant 2-sided.
I've also 'liked' her page in FB…and added it to my pages 'favorites'!

I love the fact that all the jewelry is unique. I had a hard time picking just one to like…I do like the one rectangular "blessed" with the pearl drop. I also "liked" this on facebook so all my friends can do a little Mother's Day shopping…fun giveaway, thanks for sharing.
I love all Robin's designs but i'm particularly drawn to the blessed pendants! My husband and I had difficulty conceiving our daughter and now she's almost a year old and for that I am blessed!
I love the simplicity of the blessed pendant that also speaks volumes with one little word. I do feel so blessed. Thanks for sharing.
