MOTHERLOAD GIVEAWAY.

Here it is, friends. 
The day I've been waiting for, for quite some time. 
Let the massive Mother's Day motherload giveaway begin! 

Here are the details: 
- You don't have to be a mom to enter. I know a lot of you are praying to be mothers, a lot of you aren't mothers yet, and you all have a mama. If you win something, I only hope it blesses you whatever season of life you're in.
- I will pick a winner for each item. Some items differ in prices, but if you win, you win, hooray! And if you don't win, I'm sorry. I will commiserate with you because I want to win all these items too. For some reason, I'm disqualified. 
- Giveaway starts at 6am on Monday 5/2 and runs until 5pm on Thursday 5/5. Winner announced on Friday 5/6. (ahhhh I'm so excited!)


How to enter: (here's how you get entries)
#1: be a follower of this blog & comment telling us about a mother or 
mother-figure who's been an encouragement in your life
#2: Communicate about the giveaway in some way: 
Tweet it, facebook it, blog about it. 
{comment and say you did}
#3, #4, #5, and so on: You can get an entry for each vendor/shop/blog who has contributed to the giveaway. I'll tell you how to do that for each of them. Example: if you like a vendor's blog, follow them on twitter, and favorite their etsy shop - that's three entries! 
{Comment for each one!}
