Hallmark's Moment in Time Mother's Day Gift Pack Give-Away!

I am delighted for the opportunity to let you know about some fun gift ideas from Hallmark and another give-away . . . the Moment in Time Gift Pack which is perfect for Mother's Day! You are going to love all the great things in this gift pack!!!

First of all, Hallmark is including their Hallmark Recordable Artwork: Canvas Art Kit. They say, "Kids have drawn pictures for moms for years, but Hallmark’s Recordable Artwork Canvas Art Kit takes a Mother’s Day drawing to the next level by capturing a child’s voice and the story behind his or her artwork. Equipped with a canvas panel, Crayola washable paints and a big imagination, kids can paint mom or grandma a masterpiece that is then inserted into a 9”x9” recordable frame. Then   for a unique and final touch, kids record a 40-second special Mother’s Day message into the frame and share their unique story behind their art. With the Canvas Art Kit, a mom can play back her child’s precious little voice and experience his or her big imagination on Mother’s Day and any day." I'm thinking I'll paint Josiah's and Caleb's hands, make their prints on the canvas and then record a special message from Josiah . . . then they will be able to give their masterpiece to their mom for Mother's Day! It will be so much fun! Older children could paint their "masterpiece" but, by painting hands for younger children this is a gift any age child could give his/her mom! I love it!

The second item included in this Moment in Time Gift Pack is a Conversations to Keep Recordable Book! I love this, too! This book is available as a book for mom or a book for grandma. As Hallmark says, "Filled with open-ended questions which spark imaginative answers, “Mom & Me” and “Grandma & Me” Recordable Books capture the answers only a kid can give. Within the book, kids record themselves answering a variety of questions, such as “If you and mom were aliens, what would you look like and what would you name your planet?” Or, “What does Mom do to show she loves you?”  Conversations to Keep: Recordable Books give Mom or Grandma a fun and easy way to capture the true personalities of her (grand) children so she can always remember that little voice and their time together." It will be so much fun to see how Josiah answers the questions in the Grandma & Me book! I love how the record button is protected so the conversations recorded can not be easily erased. The book is a high-quality book, with quality paper and a sturdy cover . . . it will last so when your grandchild is grown, you will be able to enjoy their answers and their voice from when they were young! Wonderful!

The final component of the Moment in Time Gift Pack is a pack of three cards for mother's day. The cards they sent for me to review are very nice - one has a button to push and it plays the song, "Some Kind of Wonderful" :^), one has a nice bookmark included and the other is a pop-up card for grandma.

So . . . how can you get your name in the drawing, which will be on April 27th, for this wonderful Moment in Time Gift Pack from Hallmark?
