For Mothers BY Mothers: Some of my Favorite Artists and a Lovely Giveaway

I'm really excited to share with you the lovely work of some very talented artists, just in time for Mother's Day.

And they have each generously offered to give away a little something to one of YOU. Give it to your mom, or keep it for yourself. I'll never tell.

There will be five lucky winners!

But back to our lovely featured artists . . .

Let me introduce them . . .

1. Jenna of Call Her Happy

Jenna creates tiny embroidered hoop necklaces, with an adorable variety of tiny designs.

Her Mother's Embroidered Rosette Necklace is custom-made to feature a pink rosette for each daughter and a blue rosette for each son. Perfect for Mother's Day.

But . . . the giveaway winner gets to choose anything in the shop.

You can also find Jenna on Facebook, and her blog.

2. Jennifer of Studio JRU{inspirational & scripture art}

Jennifer designs amazing prints in a variety of sizes, each one sure to inspire you and your family to be your best selves.

Check out her shop for prints featuring scripture verses and whimsical inspirational sayings.

The giveaway winner gets the print of her choice. But everyone gets a coupon code . . . CatholicAllYear can be used at checkout in the shop for 15% off all prints and original paintings. The offer is good for 2 weeks, until 13 May.

You can also find Jennifer on Facebook, or on Instagram.

3. Heather of Audrey Eclectic

Heather is an extraordinarily talented artist. She paints unique works of folk art, featuring great saints, beautiful families, and heroines of classic literature. They can be ordered as originals, prints, or postcards from her shop.

I have the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel earrings myself, and they are awesome. Your mom would love these, but you'll probably want a pair for yourself, too.

To be entered to win, just leave a comment below telling me why you'd like to win one of these lovely items for your mom (or aunt, or neighbor, or self). The winners will be announced HERE ON THE BLOG on Sunday (when I just might have another little something to give you). Good luck!
The giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered and to our talented artists!

Happy Mother's Day to my mom and to yours, and to all mothers everywhere.

One last thing . . .

I am super excited about a new radio show featuring my friend Bonnie of A Knotted Life.


WHEN: Sundays at 7:30 p.m. PST on Catholic Broadcasting Northwest (KBVM) premiering May 3rd

HOW: Listen live via the Tune in radio app or online. Shows will be archived on KBVM’s new website (launching May 1st) for download and later listening.

WHY: Catholic women should be able to chat about real life challenges while living faithfully and joyfully.

I got to hear a little sneak peak and it sounds like it's going to be a blast.
