Make It a Handmade Mothers Day - Week 8




If you haven't started shopping for Mother's Day gifts, you are quickly running out of time!  Just a little less than two weeks and the big day for Mom will be here.  To help you out, check out the Mother's Day Countdown 2020 Week 8, a cllection filled with unique artisan items, most of them handmade from the heart.  Hosted by Julie and Harry of Blue Morning Expressions on their Blu Print blog, each of the unique 39 items from 13 artists will make a memorable gift for Mom on her day.  This is the perfect time to start buying a gift(s) for your Mom - and, perhaps, for yourself!  These items on the Countdown go quick, and, since many are one of a kind, don't miss out.  Browse all the wonderful handmade shares for Week 8, visit the shops of the artists featured and buy your Mom a beautiful gift that was HANDMADE.




World's Best Mother Floral Decorative Throw Pillows for Home Decor Designed by Julie and Harry of Blue Morning Expressions



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 Mother's Day Countdown 2020 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 Mother's Day 2020 - Handmade Gifts 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 Mother's Day Countdown 2020 in the order drawn (unless you were late) from my trusty numbers bowl:
