Last week's winner...and another Fabulous Friday Giveaway!

First, let me apologize for just getting this posted. The last week has been a blur with all the work, the website changes, etc. With that being said...

CONGRATULATIONS to Kathy Williams for being our winner last week! Kathy gets her entire order from last weekend for FREE!!!

But, it's Friday again. That means another Fabulous Friday Giveaway! And, this Friday leads into Mother's Day weekend. So, to be entered to win this week, leave us a comment here on the blog or email us --- tell us about your mom & your favorite memories of her...or tell us about your favorite part of being a mom. Good or bad, none of us would be here without our moms. And, good or bad, none of our kids would be here without us.

I'll start...

My mom is solely responsible for my drive & determination, my belief that I can do anything that I work hard enough for, and commitment to always try my best. If I had a dollar for every time my mom told me, "if something is worth doing, it's worth doing right" and "always give your best, nothing less", then I wouldn't need to work for a living!! She was so right. She believed in me. She encouraged me to do my best, to be the best. She was also self-employed for over 20 years...mainly so she could have a schedule to make all our school activities, basketball games (home AND away), church functions, and family dinner time each night. Thanks, Mom, for showing me the way to work and be a great mom, all at the same time.

As for my role as mother, I'm so proud to have Keller as my son. Almost from the very beginning, it's been just the two of us. We have shared life's struggles & joys together. We have laughed and cried together. We are still growing together. I am still amazed at how quickly all this is passing by. He should be a toddler, still throwing his arms wildly in the air when I enter the room. How is it that he is now 6 feet tall, all sweaty & stinky from football practice when I see him after school each day?! Oh, how the time flies by...

Ok, back to you...tell us your "mom" stories! If you do, your name will be entered to win our giveaway this week:

Fun Embellishment Assortment from Queen & Company!!

Just like the 'little things' that moms do to make life better for us, these 'little things' from Queen & Co will make your projects better. You'll get chipboard buttons, antique brads, felt flowers, & more!!

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!

My Mom is my rock...I am 54 years old and my Mom is still there for me everyday. We live 800 miles apart but Ma Bell keeps us connected. She raised four children and two grandchildren as a stay-at-home Mom. I love you're the best!

I always remember people telling me that my mom would be my best friend one day. Growing up we would have the biggest fights, usually over a boy, and I couldn't imagine how they could be so wrong.
Today, she truly is my best friend, even though we are across the country. She has helped me be a wonderful mother to my two boys and I can't wait to spend this Mothers Day with her when she comes to visit.

Being a mom to my three children is a joy. I can remember when they were little and they made me mad, all they had to do was smile at me and I felt it was all worthwhile. Today the love that they show me lets me know I have raised them to be wonderful human beings. My two sons are Naval reservist and serve our country with pride. My daughter lives close by with her family and is constantly amazing me with her caring nature.
I am truly blessed.

Hope you have a Happy Mother's day. My mom passed when I was seventeen and my biggest regret is she never got to meet her grandchildren. She'd have spoiled them more than they are already. They are the light of my lives and i wouldn't trade them for anything.
