Congratulations! Email me with your contact info pronto to claim your prize!
Thank you to all of you who submitted nominations for my special mom contest. I was blown away by the response. I received over 200 emails! All of the stories are inspiring; way too many are downright heartbreaking. I spent most of the past week wishing that I had 200 prizes to give away and then it hit me: over time, and with a little help from some very generous sponsors, it's entirely possible to brighten the lives of all of the deserving women on my list...and many more...in do it in a way that doesn't make public one's very personal struggles. So here's the plan as it stands now: I've made some room on my sidebar. If you want to host a giveaway or advertise on my blog, you can do so FREE as long as you agree to send something (or a couple somethings) from your shop to one or more of the moms on my list. Make me an offer I can't refuse. It's that simple. And that awesome.
And finally...for the main attraction:
Today's special mom is Angelia from Georgia.
Here are her stats:
Um...I'm pretty much speechless.
When the ladies at Cutie and Patootie heard about Angelia, they freaked (in a good way). We all heart military moms, especially those with toddler triplets (I can't even imagine). Angelia: Hold onto your horses because Cutie and Patootie is sending you an incredibly awesome and hopeless funky care package that includes stuff for all of your kids! Me slightly jealous. Me also more than slightly less deserving. Congratulations on surviving the past year and a half and good luck on the home stretch!
In addition, you are also going to be getting a beautiful piece of jewelry from Stepping Stones or her sister store, SeaFindDesigns. All of their jewelry is handmade, eco-friendly, and Twilight friendly (it's debatable which of these things is most important).
Thanks Cutie and Patootie and SeaFindDesigns for bringing a smile to one very deserving mama this Mother's Day.
