The Winner of our Mother's Day "Newborn Package" Contest is...


Congratulations, Maci! And thank you to everyone who voted. What will Maci win, you might ask. The following companies have generously offered the following: (be sure to read about the companies and visit their websites because they are each offering DISCOUNTS to the readers of Give Away Today to their online stores--so not only does Maci receive something, but you do too!)

My Simplicity Boutique is giving Maci one large black and white polka dot flower bow.
It is interchangeable with a crochet headband, a thin headband, or just to put in a ponytail.

My Simplicity Boutique is the home of discounted headbands and beanies, fashion scarfs, personalized bow and hat holders, and along with a very large selection of unique homemade bows, for all ages! The owner of My Simplicity Boutique had her first daughter and was absolutely shocked at how much it would cost just for a headband and a flower. She decided from that moment on that she was just going to make them herself. She began getting requests from others and from then on My Simplicity Boutique was up and going. Fashion made simple. She decided to do this for all the mothers out there that don't have the money or time to make their beautiful little girl the princess she was meant to be.

DISCOUNT: If you order anything from My Simplicity Boutique, you will receivea 20% discount on your entire order. Just mention Give Away Today upon purchase.

You name it, they’ve got it from scrapbooking kits, acrylix stamps, ink pads, embellishments, how to books, organizers, and much much more. Close To My Heart coordinates everything which takes the guess work out of any project! It’s no wonder Close To My Heart’s mission is to show you how to celebrate relationships through the art of scrapbooking and stamping. Faster, Simpler, Easier.

Smoky Pendants is giving Maci a $20 gift certificate to use on any of their gorgeous jewelry.

Tara Robertson of Smoky Pendants makes rustic smoke-fired ceramic jewelry. Her pendants and focals are hand-pressed in original molds and colored by flames alone. They are fired in a backyard campfire pit filled with organic material (banana peels, moldy bread, leaves, you name it!) The colors from the burning materials are absorbed by the porous clay surfaces. After firing, they are thoroughly cleaned and polished with floor wax. Because of the process used, every jewelry piece is completely unique.

DISCOUNT: Smoky Pendants is offering a 10% discount on their products to the readers of Give Away Today. To receive the discount, you need only to type "Giveawaytoday10" in the "notes to seller" and they will send you a revised invoice through PayPal.
