Mother’s Day giveaway ~ iPad mini +

Mothers Day

Morning ladies! Okay, so Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I have two fabulous things to share with you!

First, do you have a million pictures of your kiddos (like I do) that you’d like to share with your mom and dad, grandparents, brother, cousin… etc.? And do you feel guilty (like me) that you never get around to sharing them… Ummm… yep.

Well, familiar, a free app turns the screens you already have (iPhone, Android, Tablets, PCs, and Macs) into a picture frame, allowing you to see and share family photos… PRIVATELY… no matter where you are. I know, you probably think I have no private pics because you see my kiddos here, on facebook, on Instagram… everywhere. But trust me, there are pictures, like of Christmas morning when my hair is still standing on end, that I prefer not to share with the world. Call me crazy. {grin}

And the best part, you don’t have to be app-savvy. Just download the familiar app. Upload pics. Invite family and close friends to join. Photos start showing up instantly in computer screensavers and smartphone/tablet photo wallets. Easy peasy and no more grumpy moms or mother-in-laws asking for pics from the family picnic for a third time!

Watch this short video to learn more… then go download the familiar app!

Second, we’ve teamed up with familiar to give you the chance to win the most amazing gifts ~ an iPad mini and a Shutter bag camera bag… one for you and one for your mom! {squeal} I only wish I could win myself!

We’re using Rafflecopter so I’m sure you know the drill, but just in case, you can either enter with your e-mail or with your facebook account.

Happy Mother’s Day and make sure you check out the FREE familiar app. As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate! Oh, and share the pictures with your family and friends! {wink}

    Moments I would like to share are just the every day moments that not everyone gets to see.

      Jessica – I’m with you. It’s just those everyday moments. Like, I took a picture of my little guy at McDonald’s the other day. Nothing huge, just a cutie eating hash browns! But my mom would think it adorable! ;)

    The picture of my grandmother with her daughter, which is my mom, the grand-daughters, and great grand children. she is 96 years old and in the icu. Oh she doing loads better but these pictures mean more than anything to us. She is our last living grandparent, and her attitude towards life is just wonderful. her thoughts on age is its just numbers, its how you feel that matters. :)

    The recent photo shoot that I would like to share is when my daughter made my 1 year old son walk by himself. I didn’t get the chance to meet my grandparents and it so fun to share the pictures with my mother and father at least I know they have been close to my children like I always wanted to be.
