Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in spring. The celebration of Mother’s Day began in the United States in the early 20th century. This year Mother’s Day is May 11th and my husband and I are hoping we will be celebrating the day with a new home.
So today I want to concentrate not on ME as a mother but on my own mother, who you may have become familiar with because she does a little blogging here at Shibley Smiles.
As we get older sometimes our memories fade, we remember our childhood in flashes of memory. There are certain things about my mother that stick out in my mind. I remember laying out in the sun with her often, yes we did worship the sun. I remember dancing in the kitchen and just being goofy, something I try to do with my kids. I remember that she was and still is always there for me when I need anything. So I thought the giveaway that eBay is holding right now is perfect to honor your mother.

I’ve already created a couple collections inspired by my strong and loving mother.
Relax and Pamper #eBayMom Collection
This collection was inspired by items that I thought symbolized relaxation, pampering, and just items that my mom would enjoy such as this Mystic Pink Topaz Heart Pendant because my mother always has fun and unique jewelry to compliment all her outfits.
I’ve included beach bags, sunglasses, and a lot more in this collection you can check it out here: Relax and Pamper #eBayMom Collection
Home is Where the Heart is #eBayMom Collection
This collection is inspired more about what I think my mother would like around her home. One thing my mother is EXTREMELY good at it is decorating. She honestly should become an interior decorator as she is so good at making a home look classy and warm and inviting all at the same time. She just has the knack! When I saw this, it actually made me giggle a little.
The reason is, my husband and I tend to keep our home warmer than most. We just happen to feel comfortable in 76-78 degrees. When my mom visits I try to remember to turn down the air because she is always hot at our home. So the fan made me think of her. I’ve added a few other great items like a Kitchen Aid mixer that I KNOW she would absolutely love, especially if she could get the pasta attachment. You can see the whole collection here: Home is Where the Heart is #eBayMom Collection.
The great thing is in honoring your mom by creating some fun and unique collections you are entered to win a $500 shopping spree each week. Not only that but for each Collection an Eligible Participant creates and shares during the Promotion Period, eBay will donate $1.00 to Bright Pink®. You will receive one (1) additional entry in the Sweepstakes each time you share one of your Collections during the Promotion Period. Include the hashtag #eBayMom each time you share your Collection. Sounds like a no brainer to me!
Additionally the winner is selected randomly so no worries about “is your collection good enough” your collection is YOURS and should reflect you and/or your mother. So lets see your collections!
What is one characteristic about your mother that you admire?
