My first GIVEAWAY! (And it’s my birthday…)


So it’s my birthday today, hooray! And, I think it’s Mother’s Milk Books’s second birthday this month too (I’ll have to check on that one though! – it’ll involve going through my diary to figure out when exactly I laid the foundations for the press, hmm…). Anyway, in order to celebrate birthdays, daffodils, spring and the coming of warmer weather I’ve got a few lovely gifts to give away.

Two mounted – AND SIGNED – prints of the following: ‘Mother, child, daffodils’ by Kathy Grossman, along with ‘The Daffodils’ poem by Marija Smits. Getting Kathy’s autograph on the print was a rather involved process – it came from the printers to me, then over to America and back. It really is a one-off. The other print had hardly any distance to travel, but still, it’s a special poem, which was inspired by Kathy’s stunning art.

The above artwork and poem were first published in Musings on Mothering and have also featured in La Leche League International’s magazine Breastfeeding Today. The editor, Barbara Higham, posted it up on the LLLGB Facebook page Breastfeeding Matters where the daffodils-inspired art and poetry was shared amongst many. You can see it here on the Breastfeeding Matters Facebook page.

Please note that the frames are not included in the giveaway, but the mounted prints fit a standard 8 x 10 inch frame. I bought these two simple, but elegant black frames from the friendly people at BEST4FRAMES.

As well as the prints there are two packs of greetings cards included in the prize – the winner gets to choose between the following four packs of 5 greetings cards.

All of these cards are available to buy from THE MOTHER’S MILK BOOKSHOP and fingers-crossed there’ll be some more prints there soon too. 10% of the profits from the sales of the greetings cards are going to the wonderful charity La Leche League GB.

Free shipping – to anywhere in the world – is included in the value of this prize.
