So today is my second Mother’s Day without my mum.
My mum passed away suddenly on New Year’s Eve 2013. She passed away surrounded only by the medical staff trying to save her. I never got to say goodbye.
Mum never wanted a fuss on Mother’s Day. A handmade card and a bunch of daffodils picked from the garden were all she used to ask for. In her eyes, you shouldn’t need a commercialised day to make you tell someone how special they are, you should tell them that all the year through, whenever you felt like it.
Remembering this has brought up today’s project and a little giveaway. It got me thinking, I know I cannot send mum a card any more, but I could brighten someone’s day and make them feel special whenever I feel like it.
I’ve made a batch of cards and covered notebooks similar to these in a variety of colours. I have people in mind who to send some too, but would like to send some random acts of kindness out too, hence today’s little giveaway.
Anyone who shops with me between now and the end of Sale-A-Bration (so the end of this month) will receive one of these sets in addition to my usual thank you gift (please ensure you choose to be contacted when ordering so I can send you these!) However, I would like to giveaway a set to three lovely people who either read this blog or follow me on Facebook.
If you’d like to be in with a chance of receiving one of these at some point soon, just leave me a comment saying why you think you’re a fabulous work of art (because of course you are!) and your favourite colour. I’ll then put all the names into my son George’s trilby hat and get him to pick three out. Closing Date next Sunday 22 March.
