Will there be any participants at all? Are my prizes attractive enough? Will I be able to have choices before Friday?
These are just a few of the questions in my head, stressing me out since I thought of the contest weeks ago. But i took the risk, and hopefully, some of you out there would support me on my first "interactive" venture for the blog.
After posting my announcement yesterday, I am happy to have received some very encouraging and funny feedback from well-meaning friends. Some found my criteria to be too broad, while others want the prizes for free! =D
Though on the previous post I stated that no new entries until next Friday, today, I thought I can share with you my first two headers just to give you, especially new visitors to this site, an idea how they looked like and why I used them in the first place.
The Tiffany charm bracelet caught my eye and immediately, I found it to be the fitting image for my newly-launched blog site. For me, this is a very beautiful, and elegant, symbol for Mom-Friday. Gold is precious. The engraved heart-shaped lock charm literally spells MOM. And it symbolizes the core of being a mother which is love.
Chinese silk pin cushion with five hanging "babies". My mom gave this to me before I got married. Of course this is for sewing. I guess she gave this to me 'coz she expects me to do some sewing after I get married -- stitching loose buttons, ripped hem, torn fabric toys, etc., etc. Eventually, I did some sewing. But I found this too pretty, too unique that I did not dare punch on hole on it. And it reminded me of our old smiling Buddah with many children climbing and hanging on to him. Very nurturing, multi-tasking, domesticated. So I used this to replace #1.
So hurry, send in your Mom-Friday images now and get a chance to win some cool prizes! The mystery prize is still in works and I will announce it before the deadline on March 4.
