Welcome Spring Giveaway #1 - Mommysdream (Closed)

Although our Valentine's Giveaway has ended, we want to keep the fun going! We are starting another exciting series of giveaways to help you get ready for Spring! Today, our feature Etsymom is Cindy from Mommysdream ( and what she is giving away is truly unique and creative!

Before I let you know what the giveaway item is, let's get to know her a little more!

What’s your store name and how long have you been an Etsymom?

My store name is “Mommy’s Dream Creations” ( My hubby came up with the name for the business when we first got started three years ago. It’s always been a dream of mine to create things that other people would like and be able to use. This business has enabled me to be able to stay home and continue homeschooling our daughter.

I have been an Etsymom for only a few weeks (and on Etsy for a few months), but I love the enthusiasm and encouragement that is shown throughout this group.

Tell us something about you, your family, your craft or your store?

I design and paint glassware and ornaments. All the designs are my own and I have created many custom designs as well. The most common question is “Will this design wash off my glasses?” After three years of happy customers, I can safely say, “No it won’t!”

I am a homeschooling mom of a teenage daughter and have been married to my wonderful hubby for almost 15 years. We do local craft shows and it has become a family event. I couldn’t do this without their encouragement and help!

Where do you get your inspirations?

Nature will always be one of my greatest sources of inspiration. I am always in awe of the beauty and detail that God has created even in the smallest creature. I also love the timelessness of the ocean and my nautical designs come from this.

What is the first thing you think of when someone said “Spring”?

I think of new life and hope. Every year, my daughter and I walk through our flower beds looking for the first daffodil to push up through the ground. (We tried planting crocus bulbs but the moles really like the taste of them!) I love to watch color come back and erase the drab of winter. There is a certain shade of green that comes out on the trees just as the leaves are beginning to show that is only there for a few days, and I wait for it every year.

Give us some ideas on how to have the most family fun during Spring?

When my daughter was younger, it was all about the “newness” factor. Everything we looked at was as if she was seeing it for the first time. Now that she is a teenager, it’s more of a challenge, but she has not lost her love of mud and we have plenty of that after the spring rains! It’s also nice to be able to take our three dogs out and play with them more as the weather gets warmer.
