Calling all LADIES ...

This is a Reminder Re-Post: If you are a woman, and you have a mother or mother figure in your life ... you're invited to enter Kisses of Sunshine's Mother's Day Contest! All women are invited to enter, and you do NOT need to have a blog to enter.

In honor of Mother's Day, Kisses of Sunshine is hosting a special Mother's Day Contest. Mother's Day is a time to reflect ... a time to give thanks ... and a time to show your love and appreciation, honoring the woman that you call "Mother."

What to do:

All you have to do is submit a paragraph to me (no more than 1,500 characters, including spaces) via e-mail, that tells me the one most special piece of advice your mother or mother figure ever told you, no later than Thursday, May 10, 2007, 11:59 p.m., EST. My email address is in the sidebar to the left.
All the entries will then be reviewed, and the winner will be announced on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 13th. Please feel free to submit a picture of you and your mother in either a jpeg, gif, or bmp format, and if your paragraph is chosen as the winning entry, I will post your picture also. In the subject line, please type the words: Mother's Day Contest Entry

The winner will: 1) have their paragraph (and picture, if included) posted on my blog; 2) receive a beautiful (brand new) fabric black and white floral-print Tommy Hilfiger bag (valued at $55) with black leather trim and silver-toned "Hilfiger" hardware, filled with all kinds of little goodies ... which will be mailed out via postal service the following week; 3) will receive all kinds of shout-outs and link love on Kisses of Sunshine (and you KNOW you want that -- lol!).

Ey -- Canadians ... please enter, too!!!!

Please submit real stories only, but you may, in order to protect the innocent, omit or change names in the story.

Important Rules:
1. All complete entries must be received no later than 11:59 p.m., EST, via email to, May 10, 2007
2. In the subject line, you must type the words: Mother's Day Contest Entry
3. You don't have to be a mother to enter.
4. Your mother doesn't have to be alive to enter.
5. Your mother doesn't have to have "given birth" to you in order to enter.
6. You must provide me with your real name and address if chosen as the winner (which will be kept confidential -- to my death bed).

Pictures of Prize: (sorry for poor quality -- taken with my cell phone, and plastic wrapping is still on the handles) -- 1) picture of actual purse; 2) close-up picture of fabric; 3) picture of tag; 4) picture of hardware.

Sandy said...

That sounds like a lot of fun, and the bag is awesome!
Quick question, can we be funny with our paragraph (but truthful)?

I was just stopping in to verify my deadline date for the entry.

My handbag meme post is up. I could sure use a new bag! Especially one as fun and trendy as this!

What a Great idea!
