Thank you for all your entries! Our Mama Says contest was a huge success. Congrats to Paula Power on your BIG win!
During the month of May there is that special day we call Mother's Day. This year the Whink Girls and I decided to do something special to celebrate Mom, and not to mention give away the biggest prize in Whink's history. To enter the Mama Says contest we asked all of our customers for little nuggets of wisdom from their Mom. Below are some of our favourite words that your mama says that we had to share:
- Always be honest
- Do the best you can do
- Always do what makes you happy
- You'll never regret being kind
- When out on a date, keep your knees together!
- Mind what you say
- Pay yourself first
- Clean your room
- Live everyday like it's your last
- Always wear clean underwear!
- Don't be in a rush to grow up
- You only have one reputation, protect it!
- Don't sweat the small stuff
- Do what you love, love what you do
- If you're not early, you're late!
- Be true to yourself
- Don't forget to call me when you get there!
- Don't let him know you can paint
- Just pick one and make it work...I want some grandchildren!
- Don't buy one, buy two!
- Never be afraid to ask questions
- Be independent
- Study hard and you will only have to do it once
- Never go to bed mad
- Go ask your father!
- If it's worth doing, it's worth doing well
- You only live once!
We had many more wonderful pearls of wisdom, but these where the ones we loved. During the weeks leading up to Mother's Day, we put all the Mama Says quotes on dollies and put them up in our window. By the time Mother's Day rolled around you couldn't even see inside the store!
We also had some fun taking pictures of the dollies with our fun jewelry and things!
And now to our FABULOUS winner Paula! She was so excited when she won, Paula said "I never win anything!" I think she was down to the store just a few short hours after I contacted her. Below is Paula & I when she dropped down and I gave her the mother load of Whink goodies.
The Whink Goodies included:
- Daniel Wellington St. Mawes Watch
- Two Duckstreet Wine Glasses
- $250.00 Whink Gift Card
- Make up Travel Bag
- Earring Holder
- And so much more!
That evening I got the sweetest words from Paula,
"Hi Kim, I cannot believe the amount of stuff and prize worth that I went home with. I can't stop telling my family and friends how wonderful you guys are. You truly made my day and I can't wait to spend my gift card on me."
Meeting Paula and giving her the grand prize was truly a special. It was so humbling to have made Paula's day!
The Mama Says contest was a huge success and we will definitely do it again next year. It was very special to hear everyone's nuggets of advice that they have held so dear to their hearts. They all made us smile, laugh, and bring a little tear to the eye, but importantly it made you realize that Mama always knows best. So go call your mom or that special loved one and tell her how much you love her!
I hope to hear and see you all soon.Cheers,
