I am having a better late than never Mother's Day Giveaway on my blog. The giveaway will go until Monday morning, May 12th. I will be giving 3 moms a hand painted keychain with their kids or pets "portraits" painted on it. I will paint up to 6 portraits on a keychain, moms choose colors, hairstyles etc. Participants just need to make a comment on the giveaway post.
