Mother's day alert!! Give her a wearable piece of art!


I certainly do.. but I need two little birdies of my own as currently I only have one..

Allison Strine Designs
offers some beautiful and funky necklaces, artwork, magnets and more that truely define the joy of being a mom.

Personally my favorite is the "Every little boy she loves is magic." pendant and I love the little story she includes of her son. I can't wait till Connor is talking so we can share our ideas and giggle together, that pendant really reminds me of that.

Though not all of Allison's pieces are mom's only she also offers great pendants that really speak to women. I really love her "Candy Corn is her favorite!" pendant. Who ever said candy corn is NOT a veggie is seriously mistaken!!

Perfect for mother's day.. or just anytime. You're sure to find something in Allison's etsy store that really will speak to the mom in you!

Allison sent me the "Every little boy she loves is magic." pendant and in honor of mother's day I'm going to give it away to one of my readers. *sniff* I hope someone special out there gets it as a gift!

Gorgeous items. Thanks to allergies I have grown up with birds all of my life. My favorite of Allison Strine's pieces is the She Loves Being a Mom with two little ones. This speaks to me since my beloved cockatoo Moose actually saved my oldest son's life when he was 11 months old. Moose passed away from a heart attack the night before my son had a febrile seizure and stopped breathing. Thanks to my feather angel we were home and not on the road like we were supposed to be.

Thanks for the beautiful giveaway!

Jan said...

My favorite pendant of Allison's is the new one that says: "She loves her grandkids to the moon and back" -- because I do! Grandma-hood is the nicest thing that's happened to me since Mom-hood. Love it.

Stacey Moore said...

Bebemiqui said...

I love the "Caffeine makes her more alert..." Great collection I must say! Great giveaway! Count me in. bebemiqui82(at)yahoo(dot)com

Naomi said...

I love "she has faith in her little girl" because my daughter has been so forlorn since I am always attending to her baby brother these days. Sometimes she's naughty on purpose, just to get my attention... but I want to trust her good instincts...

emcdonald said...

"She decided she was worth it" speaks to me! I'm the type of person who is always giving to others..especially my family. I rarely spend money or time on myself and need to remind myself that is is okay to give to myself!

emcdonald said...

I just posted a comment. My email address is emcdonald@interiority.org Thanks

windycindy said...

Hello! She has a terrific site. What fun it was to look at and read her art pieces. I like the "She Keeps Her Guardian Angel Busy" Long Lasting Art Print. I have two sons that I am so proud of. I would be honored to win the pendant. Thanks,Cindi

The She Doesnt Look BACK design has a meaning for me. My mom was beatin and abused as a child and teen. She told me about but never seemed mad. I could never understand why she wasen't until I asked her. She said years after she would still cry about it. reliving it over and over again. So she forgave the abuse so SHE could move on. My mom amazes me. Her forgiving that kind of hurt has taught me so much.

She Decided She Was Worth It

Reminds me of my mom.

Reiza said...

Oh, I've seen her work before. I love it. She inspired the gift I made for my niece's birthday.

My favorite is She Is Sugar and Spice and Everything Kickass because that's something I would say. I love the bright colors. It's just so happy.

Dolly said...

what a colorful and whimsical line! i love the "she is bad to the immaculately manicured bone"...that's so me rockin' the guitar. i have a little boy...this is my first mother's day with my 6 month old. i'd really cherish this pendant. thanks for the contest!

misty said...

I'd love to win the She LOVES Her GRAND Kids to the MOON and BACK pendant for my mother for mother's day. Because she does. lol. Thanks for the opportunity.

Shane said...

"She's a mom first" fits me to a T! That is my most important role right now. I'm not Shane....I'm so-an-so's mom and that's the way I like it.

AmyS said...

I love the mom colored glasses and she loves being a mom. Because my 3 children are my whole world and i would be completely lost and bored without them.

mannequin said...

"She doesn't pretend to be normal".
Never have...never will. It's a compliment to me when someone says "my but she's sstrannggeee...". Better that than NORMAL.

love em all, very creative!

Becca said...

Love is a Little One to Call Her Own really speaks to me. Maybe it's because my daughter is adopted. We waited for so long for a little one to call our own, and now that we've got her the love I feel for her is like nothing I've experienced before.

LisaW said...

I like the "Caffeine Makes Her More CLEVER, Upbeat and Alert" design. That definitely describes me--and several other busy moms I know!

a said...

Can I pick only one?? There are so many there that truly speak to me. What a fabulous collection of art and thoughts!
I love "Her House Was Clean Yesterday"...seriously...thats something I go through every other day...I sit on the couch, look around and think those exact words!

Also absolutely love "She Sees LIFE Through MOM Colored GLASSES". I see everything with a new perspective right now...its joyful yet scary at times.

Mary512 said...

I like the 'They Loved Happily Ever After' greeting card. The picture just jumped out at me. Great giveaway, thanks!

She has the sole of.....? A R T is spelled out on the image.

Lilith Silvermane said...

"She loves being a Mom", I just wish she could add six little birdies on there. I hate when people think that I hate being a mom of six wonderful kids! I want to remind them everyday, that I love it!

I'd also love this card, because my best friend is having her first child in July, her son Grady, and this would be a great card for her!!

MaryBeth said...

I really like the She Is Determined to ENJOY Herself. So true, through all the frustration, enjoyment really is what I feel- or try too.

mar said...

"Sometimes she went a whole day without wearing a bra" pendant is my favorite item - thank you

Staci said...

Very cute and creative. I love the "She Is Playing In the Dirt Again . . ." one. We are just starting our garden for the year and I spend most of my time out there. It is totally what I am up to these days. My sister just had a boy and I think the pendant would be perfect for her.

J & S said...

My favorite is the "Every Little Boys She Loves is Magic". Reminds me of my 2 boys!

louiseb130 said...

The grandma "to the moon and back" is the one I'd choose, since I'm a grammy!

moushka said...

It's funny being a SAHM you would think I would like to cook....NOT! LOL! So the saying SHE LOVES NOT COOKING is perfect for me.

Panjo Kids said...

I love Allison Strine's work. "She Really IS the Person Her DOG Thinks She Is" is my current favorite because it reminds me of my friend, NakedJen.

cre8tveminde@optonline.net said...

sweetsue said...

My mom is never without a cup of coffee, so my favorite is Caffeine Makes Her More CLEVER, Upbeat and Alert.

fidofido said...

I love she sees the world through mom colored glasses. Having just recently been visited by a single friend who has no children it gave us a new perspective on how I have changed in a good way since settling down and having children.

jennem said...

My daughter and I bond over art projects daily!

mogrill said...

jenni104 said...

I love "She Loves her kids to the Moon and Back" and Her Creative Slip is Showing. And Every little boy is magic is the truth!! I have two boys and every charm in here could apply. They are my life and my loves!! I know I sound too dependent on them, but I just love them so deeply. I can let go, but still will be together forever tied with ribbons of love. These are just the best charms I have seen in a long time. I know all that see them will fall in love with at least one, if not all of them. Thank you for bringing another wonderful item to my attention! Good luck to all, and of course all hope to win.

Shelly said...

As a coffee addict I like the Caffeine one but my favorite is Love is a Little One to Call Her Own

Kristinia said...

First off, your on my sidebar! I love your blog!

I checked out Allison's designs and I like: She Is Sugar and Spice and Everything Kickass tm pendant! That is soo me! But the softer side of me likes: She Leaves the Rest to GOD pendant.. cause God is everything in my life, He is who has given me all the blessings I have in my life!

mrssmiff said...

I love the license plate pendant......maybe it's because I'm stuck at home with strep throat and the drugs are doing the talking. I'm pretty sure I would still like though.

Seeryusfam@msn.com said...

I love everything in that store!! I'm so glad you have brought this to my attention! I love the "She works hard for her dreams", really it was a tough choice, but I've always wanted a houseful of kids, and I really had to work hard to ever get pregnant with my second child. It took 7 years! Sadly, our Pea is our last child. My body can't take another pregnancy. I have worked, and will work hard for my children...they are my dreams!!

Sharon said...

There is Nothing Random About Her Acts of Kindness - a Greeting Card-really speaks to me (this was easy)...I live by this statement...and am teaching my kids how important kindness is...it's what counts in this world. REALLY do love this card...thanks :)

I love the Sisters make the Bestest Friends. I have an older sister and a younger sister. They are throwing ma a baby shower this weekend. I think about how they are always there for me, no matter what. Some families aren't so lucky to have such relationships.

I like the "She Puts Her Big Girl Panties On and Deals With It - It is a Full Girdled Pendant . . . " because sometimes I'd rather run and hide (like spending too much time on the computer).
