Closed: Fabulous Friday Giveaway! Pretty Hair Clippies

Happy Friday! To celebrate the (Mother's Day) weekend, we're having a giveaway!

This week, Mara from Pretty Hair Clippies is generously giving away these cute hair clippies (3 sets!):



Mara is an incredible new mother and WAHM that had an important epiphany about priorities while feeding her daughter. Her story follows:

I had always wanted to be one of those hip moms who managed ten tasks at a time and cared for her child and herself with a constant smile on her face. I had hoped to be my daughter’s playmate and the cool mom who organized the pretend tea party for all the children on the block. Yet here I was, late again, aggravated at my daughter wanting to play instead of eating.

This is when I realized I had been so caught up in my worries I was missing on the most important part of my life. My daughter was not only playing, but teaching me to relax and reminding me how it feels to be a child. She was telling me to leave my worries, enjoy the moment and be part of her world. I couldn't have been part of her world if I didn't stop thinking about being late. I realized I was missing on the most important part of her life too.

Now I wear a hair clip every day: during feeding, bathing, or at the playground. They make me feel pretty and put together, like I spent all morning caring for myself, while reminding me to remain a part of my daughter’s world.

Mara started making hair clippies with the thought that they would connect mothers with children and function as a reminder to focus on one of the best gifts they've ever been given!

For your chance to win, please head on over to Mara's Etsy shop, pick out your favorite item and come back and leave a comment telling me what it is.

Fine Print: This giveaway will end at 11:00 PM EST on Thursday, May 14th with the winner being announced the morning of Friday, May 15th. I will use a random integer generator to determine the winner. You must leave me a way to contact you (blog or email) and, if I do not hear back from you in 3 days, I will draw another winner.

Good luck!
