Make it an Artisan Handmade Mothers Day - Week 6



Since Mother’s Day will be here before you know it, now is the time to start shopping for that perfect handmade gift for Mom.  The Countdown to Mother’s Day 2019 is a great place to start! The Countdown is hosted by Julie and Harry of Blue Morning Expressions on their The Blu Print blog.  Each week, handmade artists share up to three of their unique items, each one a perfect gift for even the most hard to please Mom. This week, a total of 32 artisan items were shared from 11 handmade artists.  Browse all the wonderful handmade shares for Week 6, visit the shops of the artists featured and buy your Mom a beauty that was handmade from the heart.

If you have a studio or shop on Indiemade, ArtFire, Zibbet, StoreEnvy, Shopify, 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 2019 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 is preferred since everyone can see the items and it is easy to save off of them. Twitter and Facebook are also great but do not provide the ability to find items as easily to share again.  Please provide your Pinterest / 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 Gifts - 2019 Pinterest board and on Twitter @ShadowDogDesign, 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!
