Last week, I showed you the tea basket I put together for one silent auction. This week, I reveal the Mom's "Time Out" Basket I'm about to donate to another silent auction. I had a blast coming up with things to help a mom relax. I even included a DVD for the kids to watch while she has a glass of wine, a cup of tea, does her nails, writes in the journal or, perhaps, reads my book Rescued from Ruin.
When I was putting this basket together, I thought of the great Elizabeth Taylor quote
"Pour yourself a dink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together."
Hopefully, this basket will help some mother do just that.
Please don't forget, another basket I helped put together is one you can bid on! Fellow writer Melissa Cutler and I have created a cocktail gift basket. We donated it to the Brenda Novak Online Auction for Diabetes Research. This is a great on-line event in which authors donate items, critiques and all sorts of great things to help raise money for diabetes research. If you've never heard of this event, please check it out by clicking on the picture below. The auctions begins May 1, 2014 but you can preview the hundreds of items donated by some of your favorite authors.
