Great Gift Ideas for a Handmade Mothers Day - Week 9



Watch out!  Mother’s Day will be here next Sunday May 13!  It’s not too late to order a handmade gift from the beauties shared this week on the Mother’s Day Countdown 2018, hosted again this year by Julie of Blue Morning Expressions on her The Blu Print blog.  Week 9 came and went and fourteen handmade artisans and one preowned seller shared a total of 45 wonderful items items. Browse the wide range of unique shares for this week - many of them one of a kind designs - visit the shops of the artists featured and buy your Mom something that was HANDMADE from the heart!

If you have a handmade 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 Countdown to Mother's Day 2018 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.

When you participate in the Countdown to Mother’s Day, important backlinks are provided 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 as 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 backlinks.  And make comments on the blogs - that helps everyone, as well!

In addition to saving all the items shared in the Countdown onto my new Mother’s Day Countdown 2018 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!


Here are the rest of the wonderful handmade items from this week's Countdown to Mother's Day in the order drawn from my trusty numbers bowl (unless you shared late after I had everything already set up):
