Ode to the Pregnant Mother: A Giveaway!!!

OdePregnantMotherlast week i received this beautiful Chelsea Perkins Ode to the Pregnant Mother painting from a doula client. I fell in love with it instantly.

I’m happy to officially announce the giveaway  for this painting.  I can assure you it looks beautiful framed.

So who should enter this contest? Hmmm well let ‘s see:

anyone who is a birth worker looking for something sweet  to hang in their office or home.

anyone who is looking for the perfect baby shower gift.

any woman who is pregnant now and wants to commemorate their pregnancy.

any woman who has ever been pregnant, ever.

and, hello, mother’s day is right around the corner…

so the answer is all of you .

all of you should be entering to win this free, gorgeous 9 x 12 painting. 

either for yourself or as a gift to someone dear. heck, maybe even give it to your doula or midwife ;-)

In addition, I’d like to add that Chelsea makes beautiful animal inspired paintings. To me, they seem like perfect nursery/kids room material or could be found on a hipster mantle or bathroom somewhere. pretty much the perfect combo, right?

you can find examples on her facebook page and etsy or send in a request for a custom animal print – in case you’re really into jackalopes.

Ms. Perkins is generously extending a 25% discount to my readers with the MOMJEANZ code on etsy. So if you can’t stand the chances of not winning this print you can custom order one for yourself or your favorite pregnant lady. While you’re in there ordering your ode to a pregnant mother painting go ahead and submit a request for that jackalope for junior’s room. it’s too good to pass up. I’ll be posting a button over on the side bar for easy etsy access. 

So here’s how to enter:

1. Leave a comment below telling me who you’d be giving this to and why {and mommas it’s completely ok to say yourself. you’ve earned it by carrying a human inside you} 

I hope to see a lot of comments coming in for this beautiful print. And I hope you’ll send some sweet support Chelsea’s way with her lovely original paintings on etsy.

best of luck! winner will be announced next week.

{ps. please like Chelsea Perkins Art and Momjeanz on facers if you haven’t already.}

i received this beautiful print from a client earlier this week. i fell in love with it instantly. i will cherish it all my days.

and i’m happy to announce that the artist, columbus’ own chelsea perkins, is going to let me host a give-a-way of one of her “ode to a mother” prints next week. stay tuned for that announcement to win one of your very own. i’m very excited about it!

in the mean time, head on over to her facebook page and etsy to check out her cute custom prints.

please stop by for the details next week.

{and a public thank you to the thoughtful momma who gave this to me. this truly makes me a “gifted doula” now ;-) }



midwife bag

my MANA prize package came yesterday. Woot Woot! lots of good stuff in there that made me very stoked. I’m looking forward to adding some of these to my doula bag. i haven’t watched Penny Simkin’s Comfort Measures for Childbirth since my training weekend so i’ve got some new and old study materials to visit. I’m very thankful to MANA for holding such a great giveaway and thankful to the universe that i was the recipient.

Simply Tangled Giveaway

we love giving and getting gifts from simply tangled ceramics so i thought i would extend the giving to you, dear readers!

one of my favorite christmas gifts from last year was my highly coveted ceramic flask. for mother’s day mike gifted me a matching vase. both these items adorn our kitchen window shelf because they make me so very happy to see every morning. and just last week darla and i gave mike a belt crafted from lance’s handy work.

my point is, we love their work. we feel very lucky to have such talented friends. we hope you will love it too!smallyellowbowltopsmallyellowbottom

simply tangled has generously offered up this hand crafted bowl to a MomJeanz reader. If it were coming to our house it would become a lovely little candy dish to stow our non-individually wrapped christmas candy. or used for some peppermint ice cream for our little miss.

but it’s not coming to our house. it’s going to yours. do what you want with it. keep it or give it away as a gift since that’s what the season is all about.

head over to simplytangled.com and check our their portfolio. leave a comment on this post letting us know your favorite simply tangled piece and you’ll be entered. winner will be announced friday.

  looking forward to your comments and GOOD LUCK.

oh, and there will be a discount for readers on their etsy site. stay tuned later in the week for discount info!
