Happy Mother’s Day (Week)! (And Our First Giveaway!)

It’s Mother’s Day Week! That’s right. As is the Fit Bottomed tradition in all things celebratory, you don’t just get a day. You get an entire week of fun and giveaways! I don’t know who is more deserving of prizes than the rest of you moms out there who are taking care of kiddos while also taking care of yourselves and your jobs and the dishes and the LAUNDRY, so this week is our chance to give you an internet hug and real pick-me-up with things you might not go buy yourself but that you totally deserve!

First up is a giveaway from Papyrus Online, which is the place to go for beautiful stationery and paper goods. If you’re like us, you’ve never met a paper good or school supply you didn’t like, so when you see something like, these journals, for example, you just want to get your hands on them. Today, we’re giving away two Enchanted Forest coloring books — and the first lucky winner will get a set of Fine Line Color Gel Pens as well. I own both Enchanted Forest and Secret Garden, and the author Johanna Basford knows how to make a beautiful book. The thick paper and the inky details add up to a great coloring experience. Coloring these will take your stress level down a notch or two and transport you to a land where you don’t have to worry about what to make for dinner. (The pens are awesome but note that you’ll need other markers or colored pencils for coloring; the pens are best for only the finest of details.)

If you have artsy kids like I do, this will give you something to do while they’re drawing and coloring. Quality time while you destress? Yep, you know you want them!

To enter, simply let me know why you’d like a copy and consider yourself entered. Winners will be chosen in about a week and notified via email. U.S. residents only, please! —Erin

  1. What a lovely idea – a whole WEEK of Mother’s Day! We damn well deserve it, don’t we? 🙂 I’d love to try out this new coloring book craze as a way spend time with my daughter – her coloring her books and me coloring mine. What a nice thought that is!

  2. I found a box of colored pencils while spring cleaning and now I need to put them to use!

  3. I have been wanting to get an adult coloring book for a while now. This one looks great!

  4. I am a fan of coloring books for adults and would love to try these. I usually just end up sharing a Minnie Mouse coloring page with my 4yr old, a book for just me would be awesome!:)

  5. Yes, I’ve been wanting an adult coloring book to test and see if they really do help with stress, please enter me in the giveaway.

  6. I’ve been looking one for sometime now, but never got around to purchasing one. I want this coloring book for myself. I’m beginning a new chapter in my life of self-improvements, and this would accomplish one in the area of relaxation.

  7. This looks like a great relaxation thing to do. And my 11 year old would love it too.

  8. My sister is really into these coloring designs lately and they seem to be a great destresser so I’d love to give them a try!

  9. Amy Rouse (lucky 13) wins the book/pens and Melanie (2) wins the other book! Look for an email shortly!
