Countdown to Mother's Day - Handmade Gifts - Week 8



Can you believe that week 8 of the Countdown to Mother's Day, hosted by Julie and Blu of Blue Morning Expressions on their The Blu Print blog, has come and gone?  Mother’s Day is only 2 weeks away - not much time left to pick out that perfect handmade gift.  Nineteen (19) artists shared fifty-seven (57) artisan handmade items in this week’s Countdown.  Any one of the mostly one of a kind handmade items shared this week are perfect for even the pickiest Mom.  Visit the shops of the artists featured and buy Mom something that was handmade from the heart.  



Butterfly Charm Multi Wrap Purple, Green, Yellow and Orange Boho Bracelet Handmade by Kathy of KatsAllThat



If you have a studio or shop on Indiemade, ArtFire, Zibbet, StoreEnvy, SupaDupa, Etsy, stand alone websites and the like, you are invited to share up to three Mother's Day gift items on the on the Mother's Day Countdown 2017 collection between Friday at 12:00 noon EST until midnight the following Sunday night.  Then a brand new collection of gift ideas will start the next Friday, and so on, until the weeks are finished and Mother's Day is here!  By the way, the items shared need to be G-rated - no kinky Mom stuff here, please.

When you participate in the Mother's Day Countdown 2017, important back links are provided back to your items.  This will help make you more easily found by the Google gods.  If you share items, you MUST promote each item in the countdown collection.  That is only fair.  Pinterest and / or Wanelo are preferred since everyone can see the items and it is easy to save off of them.  Twitter, Facebook and G+ just do not provide the ability to find items easily to share again.  It would be great if you would provide your Pinterest / Wanelo / Twitter and/or blog links in the comment section on Julie's blog.  And it would also be much appreciated to "blog hop" the Countdown on your blog since that provides even more back links.  And make comments on the blogs - that helps everyone as well!



Long Orange Dangle Clip-on Earrings Handmade by Sharon of BlondePeachJewelry



In addition to saving all the items shared in the Countdown onto my new Mother’s Day Countdown 2017 Pinterest board and Wanelo collection, as in Countdown's past, I decided to share one item from each of the various artists who participated on my Indiemade blog.  This will be a perfect time to pull out a sheet of paper and a pen or pencil (or get your computer bookmarks ready) and begin your shopping list.  Above all, however, have fun!
