Arts in RI team members decided to creatively challenge one another to come up with Mother's Day themed items and post them for you on our blog. We will be running a contest between now and midnight May 9th. All you have to do to enter our contest is leave a comment for the artist about the creation and you will be entered into a random drawing for a basket of handmade goods made by Arts In RI members. You can leave a comment every time we post a new item for multiple chances of winning! We are also offering the winner the option of having the winning basket sent directly to his or her mother if they so choose!
Mother's Day allows us the opportunity to celebrate moms and what they do for us every day of the year. Flowers have always been a traditional way to show appreciation to the moms in our lives and some historians claim that Mother's Day originates from ancient spring festivals dedicated to maternal goddesses. Greeks honored Rhea, wife of Cronus and mother of the gods and goddesses of Greek mythology. Ancient Romans had a spring festival dedicated to Cybele, also a mother goddess. Called Hilaria, this celebration lasted for three days and included parades, games and masquerades.
In celebration of Mother's Day, Valerie of Elysian Fields, has a custom listing up for one of her Nature Spirit creations.
"Mother's Day is coming! What better way to show your love than with a unique hand crafted Nature Spirit© design! Moms who love to be outdoors, run, or garden would love to own an original piece of art inspired by Nature."
Let us know how you feel about Valerie's work in the comments section in the ArtsInRI's Blog and you will be entered into a random drawing for a gift basket filled with goodies.
