We launched our Mother’s Day campaign last week (it falls on Sunday 15th March here in the UK). And while it’s nice to spoil your mum on a designated day of the year, we can’t help but think you should be thankful for your mama and all the little things she does, every damn day of the year.
And so, our #everydaymum campaign was borne. We wanted to give you guys the opportunity to win something nice for you mum, to say thanks, just by tweeting about how fabulous she is.
It could be something small, like the way she’d cut your toast into squares when you were poorly. Or maybe it’s a piece of life advice she taught you. Or maybe it’s a memory from your childhood that never fails to make your smile. Listen you guys, it’s time to be grateful and get EMOTIONAL – check out the entires so far in our gallery here (but maybe have a tissue handy).
Everyday, we’ll be giving away a £50 Etsy gift card, selected at random from all the validated hashtagged entries. And every week, someone will win a £100 Etsy gift card, plus their quote on an item handmade by an Etsy seller!
Lucky Sian Kellaway from Manchester was last week’s winner, and her quote is currently being added to a beautiful bracelet by Danielle from Glam and Co Jewellery – stay tuned for pics!
This week, you could win your #everydaymum quote on a colour-popping cushion, handmade by Etsy seller MeMake from London. We asked top blogger (and founder of WIWT.com, the UK’s largest outfit sharing site), Poppy Dinsey to inspire us by sharing her own mum memories, which you can read over on her blog.
Her #everydaymum quote? It’s not exactly Twitter-sized, but we let her off as the sentiment is oh-so sweet:
“My mum is the funniest woman I know. She’s supportive and kind and inspiring and wonderful and all those great things that mums should be, but it’s the fact she can make me cry with laughter in the most inappropriate of situations that I love the most”.
Jane from MeMake reworked her ever-popular embroidered word cushions to reflect the sense of fun at the heart of Poppy’s relationship with her mum, with this custom made ‘laugh’ cushion. Isn’t it adorable?
