Mother's Day Celebration : Blue Buddha Boutique's Chain Maille Kit Giveaways

By on Monday, May 06, 2013 40 Comments

Did you know Mother's Day is an American invention?  It became a recognized holiday in 1914.  It's technically not the same as the Christian holiday, Mothering Sunday ,which is the 4th Sunday in Lent.  In the UK, this is the date that's now considered as Mother's day there. In many other  countries like the US, Canada and Australia, the special day is the second Sunday in May.


Other nations celebrate their Mother's day in different months of the year with the most popular months being March and May. Whatever the day, the goal is the same - to honor mothers and motherhood.  The role mothers play is so important to the well being of not just families but for society in general.

Rebeca Mojica's Blue Buddha Boutique is doing something special ahead of Mother's Day.  They are organizing blog giveaways and a blog hop as they did before.  One lucky reader of this blog will win the Celtic Visions bracelet (shown above) kit and PDF instructions. It's ideal for beginners.

There is also a Grand Prize :  a limited edition Mother's Day Starter Pack which you can enter over on the Blue Buddha Boutique.   This super-pretty pack comes complete with everything you need to get started making chain maille, including two pairs of pliers, bead mat (for holding rings) and a kit and instructions to make a Shaggy Loops earrings and bracelet set using glass rings.  


The closing date for all the giveaways is May 8.   This is a short deadline so "hop" to it!  Pun intended!

  16. I am still relatively new to chain maille (somewhere between beginner & intermediate) & love BBB's products -- kits, rings, instructions, tools. Their kits & instructions take the intimidation out of trying new skills.

  38. Would love to win the Chain Maille Kit as it is something I've always wanted to attempt. Oh I've done the simple 1 by 1 chains or even dared to do a 1 x 2 or a 2 x 2 chain but interlocking those jumprings together like some 3 dimensional jigsaw puzzle - well I find that rather intimidating.

  39. I really want to learn to make these fabulous items! Love the colors!
