Make It A Handmade Mothers Day 2022 - Week 3



Week 3 of the Mother’s Day Countdown 2022 seemed to blow right on by (where do the days go???).  Hosted by Julie and Harry of Blue Morning Expressions on their the Blu Print blog, 27 unique handmade items  from 9 artists were shared on the Countdown - each one a wonderful gift for Mother’s Day.  Since the big day will be here before you know it - about 7 weeks from now - this is the perfect time to start thinking about and buying a gift(s) for your Mom.  Browse all the wonderful handmade shares for Week 3, visit the shops of the artists featured and buy your Mom a unique beauty that was artisan handmade from the heart.  Be sure to buy handmade this Mother's Day and support a small indie business!

If you have a studio or shop on Indiemade, Zibbet, Shopify, StoreEnvy, Etsy, a 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 2022 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 Mother's Day Countdown, 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 Countdown to a Handmade Mother's Day 2022 Pinterest board and tweeting items on my Twitter timeline, 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 in the order drawn from my trusty numbers bowl:
