Transfer Tape Winners!

Winners for our latest contest are below - take a look at all the wonderful stories shared under our Comments! Thanks to all who participated and were willing to share. Winners please e-mail your shipping information to!

The one story I remember the best is my mom told us not to bring extra food over because she had made enough for everybody. I said ok and passed along the word! We started to eat, and I kept thinking, Man, she sure doesn't have much here, I should have made a salad or something. We were just about done eating and all of a sudden she jumps up and says, "Why didn't you remind me to get the beans out of the microwave", and " buns and ribs out of the oven"!!!!! I mean, come on... I didn't even know they were there..LOL.. she felt really stupid after that, and forgot she made apple pie too cause she was too embarrest. OH well. we got it and we ended up being really full.. 

Well when I was learning to drive my mom was with me. I had a 1981 Chevy Chevette - no power anything..... My mom told me that I had to have the oil changed before we could do anything else.
So she made me drive to the oil change place to have the oil changed, yes you know those ones you drive over the little hole in the ground...
Well my mom was telling me one thing, the guy was telling me to turn the other way and I just couldn't get it to turn quick enough. Oh, yes you guessed it. I DROVE RIGHT INTO THE PIT.
I was sobbing uncontrollably - my mom was laughing hysterically. My mom while still laughing was a little concerned about how they were going to get the car out of the pit. The guy directing me told the guys – yep we have another newbie here. Need to a pullout. (What?) I looked at my mom and the 3 guys picked up the front end of the car moved it over about 2 feet and then proceeded to do the oil change.

My mom still laughing, me still crying – told her “I’m never driving that again”. She looked at me and said, “Well, I guess you’ll be walking the rest of your life”. She gave me a vote of confident to get back in the car drive, again.

Thanks for the chance to win. I love my mom and am thankful for her!!!

Not a Mother's day story per se but one of those fun moments in mothering.
I re-posted a saying a few days ago on FB that I thought was very thought provoking. It was what if you woke up tomorrow with only the things you thanked God for today. I shared this with my son over lunch and I said, "Doesn't that make you think?" His response, "I'd have a lot of food". lol! Truly the way to a teenage boy's heart IS through his stomach!
Thanks for your great store, web site, and blog!

My hubs works out of town all the time. So if he's home on holidays its a treat. He makes it the best possible even when he can't be here. This year on Mother's Day, (of course he wasnt home)every time he called he yelled "Happy Mother's Day". After about the 5th call I asked him was he going to keep doing that and he said its Mother's Day all day isnt it. I just laughed..... I love that man!!!!!

I guess my story really isn't funny but the year before I became a mom(through the wonder of adoption!!), my husband and I were planting flowers. I had taken a flat of flowers out of the back of the truck, started walking backward, tripped over a flower pot, fell - flowers went flying and I went down. Off to the ER we went. I had a broken shoulder!! Luckily this happened on the Mother's Day before I was a mom - I couldn't imagine having a broken shoulder and a baby!! This year we were looking at flowers but my 8 year old said that we couldn't get any because she didn't want me to break my shoulder again!
