The Mother of all Mother’s Day Giveaways from Scott Frame and Art

Mamas, this is BIG. We’re hosting the mother of all Mother’s Day giveaways for one of our favorite website sponsors, Scott Frame and Art. Three of our readers will win a Mother’s Day package which would normally retail at more than FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS! (We told ya it was big.)

Fellow local mama Jamie McGowen (who owns Scott Frame and Art with her husband Scott McGowen) actually came up with the idea for this fun giveaway. Even one of these gift packages would have been enough to make us turn a cartwheel, but Jamie tripled it so that three local moms could win an amazing collection of gifts, just in time for Mother’s Day 2019. Each winner will pick up her gifts in one of Scott Frame and Art’s three locations — Rogers, Fayetteville, and Bentonville.

Here’s a photo of the gift package from the Bentonville location:

Clearly, Jamie knows what a mama likes because she curated the items for each of the three gift packages. Here are some of the items and brands included:

  • Chloe and Lex handbag
  • Chloe and Lex wristlet
  • Rebecca Ramos necklace
  • Nouvelle candle
  • Greenwich Bay Trading Co. soap, lotion and scrubs
  • Revive Bath and Body soak and lotion
  • Canoe Fold-Over Wallet
  • Fancy Pants Notecards
  • Artisan Reserve Bath Bombs
  • Scott Frame and Art Gift Card (for a free 16×20 photo canvas)’
  • Package value = more than $400

The final item on that list is one of our favorites because the gift card will allow you to upload one of your favorite images of your kids or your family and have Scott Frame and Art turn it into a beautiful 16×20 canvas which will be ready to hang on the wall. I’ve ordered several of these photo canvases over the years, and they are one of my favorite ways to make a plain wall something special. All three of the gift packages we’re giving away will include one of those gift certificates for a photo canvas from Scott Frame and Art. 

Here’s a photo of the gift package from the Rogers location:

  1. Now that I am a mother, I am really good at transforming robots into cars or dinos or whatever you want to transform your little gadget/toy into. My kisses are magic. (I never knew I was a magician before). As it turns out, the houseplants that I have devotedly watered for years have extravagant names that captivate the imagination, like “monstera deliciosa” and “monstera adansoni” and “syngonium”. (Again, magic). And with them, I can build jungles for dinosaurs and dragons to sleep and eat and do battle in. (Did I mention magic?). And I have laughed and laughed and laughed. And I have learned to cry. And when my baby wiped the tears from my eyes, I learned what love is. The real kind of love. (A very special kind of magic all it’s own.). I think the real question should be what motherhood hasn’t done for me. Because it has introduced me to worlds I never new existed before.

  2. Motherhood has blessed me with a love for my girls that is bigger than I could have ever imagined!
    I also follow on Facebook and Instagram

  3. Motherhood has given me the gift of slowing down, and appreciating the small things in each day that are beautiful!

  4. Motherhood has blessed me with…

    Pink dresses, frilly bows, hair bands all over my house, chewed up crayons, paint stained finger prints on my walls, big cheesy grins when I try to say no, hair…hair everywhere, tear streaked faces and belly laughs, a fridge covered in 100 different colored pieces of papers, and endless memories and I love yous from the most precious 3 girls I have ever laid eyes on. My heart, paitence, sanity, house and love, has grown to unmeasurable amounts, nothing in this world makes me happier than coming home to those 3 faces. Motherhood is my everything.

    (I follow on Insta and FB as well 😍) you

  5. Wow! What an awesome giveaway! Thank you! Motherhood has taught me so many things including, patience, unconditional love, and surviving on a minimal amount of sleep. I think one of the most important things it has taught me is seeing and experiencing life through different perspectives. I reminded myself that by children haven’t had the experiences and life lessons that I have. They each see life through different eyes. Being aware and trying to meet them where they are has helped me be a better mother and in many other areas of life. I receive the newsletter, follow on all social, and will comment on fb! Thank you again!

  6. It’s helped me to realize that material things don’t matter that time spent with my family is what matters most.

  7. Motherhood has made me a better person and has taught me to slow down and enjoy life more. I have also learned to be very good at legos 🙂 #boymom

  8. Motherhood has taught me many things. It has taught me what it is to be selfless,to put anothers happiness, dreams, needs and wants before my own. It has taught me what love truly is and that I’m stronger then I ever believed. It has also taught me alot about grace and forgiveness, mostly towards myself. I’ve also learned it’s about the little moments, not just big, that add up to the best memories ❤️ Happy Mother’s Day momma’s! ❤️

  9. Motherhood taught me that no love is like the love of children! The love between mother and her children is unconditional and can never be matched. Through the years they’ve grown up but in my eyes are still my babies! The they give you grandkids that are loved just as much! Life is all about family and love!❤️

  10. Being a mom has made me into a fun person. I thought I was fun when I was younger and in my 20’s, but the fun I have with my kids is a whole new level. I pretend more and stop to look at things in a way I would have never done before.

  11. I have learned what it feels like to love unconditionally. Motherhood is the most rewarding but toughest job I have ever had. I have been blessed with two amazing children!

  12. Motherhood has helped me better understand God’s love for all His children.

  13. Motherhood has taught me even more patience than I already had. It has also taught me to go through my life with very little sleep!

  14. My kids are the best thing that has ever happened to me. Mckenna is my first born who made me a mom in 2003. She has been funny, smart and talented. Kyler was born in 2005. He is a hard worker, and is eager to please. Koen 2009 and is the baby. He is funny and cracks me up daily. As you ladies know I am fighting against stage 4 cancer. If nothing else they can maybe see how much they mean to me. I love you all! A zillion infinity times a zillion infinity. ❤️

  15. I have great confidence because my Mom taught me not to apologize for my disability or for being in a wheelchair. She is a single mother with a disabled child who she took anywhere whether in a cab or a bus and finally in her car which she didn’t mind being scratched. She took me to the mall where some rich people looked with disapproval and even told her to leave me in the hospital as mom struggled to get me out of the taxi. Mom always took pride in me so I justify all her selflessness by always sitting tall!

  16. I am a mother of 3 boys. The biggest gift motherhood has given me is patience, unconditional love, and purpose. I look forward seeing life through the eyes of my boys’ every step along the way… school, first job, first girlfriend, first everything. I am so blessed to be their Momma. I can’t wait to see what life has in store for them. The sky is the limit but not really! Why not reach for the moon?! 🙂

  17. Motherhood has taught me what true love is! It has taught me to be selfless, confident, forgiving, and strong. It has broken me, but lifted me up! It has made me cry, but laugh even more! It has tested me, but most importantly, it has given me my two very best friends for life!

  18. You have kept me laughing and given me monthly ideas/activities to do with my grandchildren

  19. Unconditional love and acceptance. I never knew I could love so hard!!!!!

  20. So many gifts I can’t even count! The gift to forgive myself when things aren’t perfect. The gift of seeing my husband in a new way (being a good dad is sexy!). The gift of being able to see the world through a childs eyes. And most importantly to me, the gift of seeing someone else grow up in Christ and make a difference in the world! It’s even better than doing it yourself!

  21. I had my first son when I was 17 1/2. Motherhood brought me a little bundle that I want sure how to handle but quickly I learned what the true love of a Mother is and how to care for that tiny human. And how to grow up with responsibilities. Then 5 years later the baby brother. I was Blessed with two wonderful little guys who grew into Awesome Men. I didn’t think I could ever love more till the Grandbabies came along 🙂

  22. Motherhood has given me the joy of knowing how much more I could expand my heart, by now allowing me to become a Gaga to two beautiful little granddaughters. It has also showed me the depth of love my birth mother had for me by choosing life, my life, possibly over hers…and sharing me with the very best Momma she could of picked out for me. Grateful.

  23. Motherhood has given me a miracle. We were not supposed to be able to have kids and then poof!! Being a Mom to my miracle has made me appreciate the little things. It has given me patience…a lot of patience. But mostly it has given me a greater love than I ever imagined possible. Being a Mom is the greatest and most fulfilling thing I will ever do.

  24. Motherhood has blessed me with the ability to enjoy the small things; the ability the have a good laugh every day; the ability to cry from pride; the ability to make a million different combinations for lunches; the ability to love more than I thought possible.

  25. Motherhood has taught me the deep, unconditional love God has for me. It is truly the greatest blessing ever!

  26. Motherhood has blessed me with all things boy. Dirt, tractors, dinosaurs, poop talk, and hit wheels. I kinda love the mother/son relationship too!

  27. Being a #boymom has taught me how to tough it through the most disgusting things…
    Also follow on FB, Insta and Twitter.

  28. The gift Motherhood has given me is seeing how much my own parents must have loved me (because I know how much I love my children). Much more important to me now that I have lost both of my parents. Thanks Ben, Jack, and Emma! And thanks Mom and Dad. 🙂

  29. Motherhood has unwound me a little bit–I am definitely more laid-back and go-with-the-flow than I used to be!

  30. Motherhood has given me an understanding of unconditional love and how Jesus loves us

  31. Motherhood has taught me that I am stronger than I thought I was. It has taught me to let go and realize I can’t control everything. And being a boymom has shown me a whole other side of childhood (I only had a sister) full of Transformers and Avengers and mud and light sabers and more mud and the love a boy has for his momma. It’s awesome.

  32. Motherhood had taught me to take it one day at a time. To slow down because my babies, won’t be babies much longer. The chores can wait, but my kids only have one childhood moment/memories to live ❤️

  33. Motherhood has gifted me with a closer relationship with my husband. We are a wonderful team and are stronger now

  34. As a dog mom, I love hard on my fur babies. I also enjoy helping to spoil my friends children

  35. Motherhood has taught me about letting go and surrendering to what is. When I am attached to my agenda and my preferred outcome, I am only setting myself up for frustration. If I can let go of my expectations, it instantly becomes less stressful.
    For instance: after I had my third baby, I realized that every time we had to leave somewhere (the park, the library, etc), it was inevitable that someone would be crying. I resisted it for a long time, but as soon as I was like, “Oh. It’s a stage of life. This is just how we leave places now,” I felt so much more free. Haha.
    Now there’s five kids, and there are lots of opportunities to either fight back or let go… and letting go always feels better.

  36. Motherhood has blessed me with 3 children who are all now adults. Being a mother of 3 adults is totally different than being a mother of 3 young children. Motherhood has taught me that the love you have for your children can be smothering and that it’s best to be loving and supportive but not with any expectations of anything in return. As the children age they want their independence and it’s very hard as a mother to do that but it’s necessary and healthy.

  37. Motherhood has taught me to appreciate my mom more than I ever have. Being a mom is HARD work!

  38. Motherhood has given me a much stronger sense of self and I feel much more in tune with my emotions. I have confidence and contentment that don’t need tended to on a daily basis.

  39. Motherhood has given me so many things…. a greater appreciation for my own mama… the ability to multi-task… knowledge of all kinds of boy activities… deep love… amazing patience…

  40. Motherhood has given me the ability to know that we’re all in this mess together and we need other mamas to have our backs. It has created the strongest friendships I’ve ever known.

  41. Motherhood has taught me so much! I don’t know that I could ever list them all but one that sticks out is unconditional love. I never dreamed I could love someone so much no matter what! This is a wonderful giveaway and I thank all of those involved for the chance to Simon of the packages.

  42. Motherhood has blessed me with something many woman wait years and years for or never get to experience at all; the gift of being called mom (like 50 million times a day). Seriously, I have friends who would give anything for the chance to be interrupted during phone calls or bathroom breaks by their baby or teen just for the chance to be a mom but they continue to struggle through infertility or adoption.

  43. Motherhood has taught me more than I could ever put into words. It has taught me patience beyond what I thought I was ever capable of. It has taught me that some things will just have to wait… laundry, dishes, vacuuming and all those things you used to think had to be done e Rey day can wait until another day. I’ve learned that time goes fast and you can never get time back… it’s a true gift. I’ve learned the true meaning of unconditional love and that I can love a child that is not biologically mine just as much as my own…. as I have recently gained custody of my two nephews over the last year. I’ve learned that a mother’s job is NEVER done and that I’m capable of doing more than I ever thought I would be able to do. I’ve also learned that when I’m having hard days or going through a tough time… that my 3 wonderful boys have an amazing way of bringing joy to my life each and every day.

  45. Motherhood (I love that word) has taught me to be accepting, comforting and extremely patient! My children have definitely taught me what it means to love unconditionally! ❤

  46. The greatest gift motherhood has given me is learning to let the little things go. If the house is dusty, the car is a mess, and there are toys strewn throughout the house- who cares? I’m having fun and enjoying every minute with my sweet twins!

  47. Motherhood has given me an intense awareness of self and drives me to be the best me I can be for my kiddos. Motherhood has made me refocus my priorities and values.. All things I thought were important I realized Had very little importance at all.. my definition of achievement and accomplishment has completely changed.. before kids I wanted accolades and a promotion after kids success is seeing my children living Life and making choices that reflect the values I’ve instilled in my children.

    Wow.. this question was very self reflective:)

  48. Motherhood has aged me, softened me, allowed me to grow in ways unimaginable, and love deeper than I ever thought possible.
    I also commented on Facebook

  49. Motherhood has taught me how to slow down and enjoy all the “simple pleasures”. Motherhood has taught me to be grateful for all the craziness, messy house, non stop laundry, milk/food stained walls because without them I would be momma. They love for my children is unlike anything else I’ll ever feel and the love these babies have for their momma is unconditional!

  50. They say you don’t know what true love is until you have a child. This is so true! There is no greater earthly love.

  51. To stop and smell the roses, live, love, laugh, and everything will be ok. I follow on FB, Insta, & Twitter 🙂

  52. Motherhood has given me more than I could have ever dreamed of. There are not enough words to express and describe adequately what motherhood has given me. Truly the greatest joys and the most humbling moments!! I am forever greatful to be called Mom!!

  53. Besides sitting in the pee of my sons, being left without toilet paper, hearing the nonstop laughter caused by bodily functions, motherhood has given me the opportunity to be the one and only Queen of my home. On a serious note, I have been given three healthy beautiful boys who love their momma way more than I could ever imagine. It’s exhausting and messy but would not trade being a boy mom for anything.

  54. Motherhood has been the greatest blessing that God could ever give! Motherhood has helped me strive to be an example for my children to follow. Motherhood is truly so rewarding in so many ways. I am so thankful for my beautiful mother who is now my guardian angel who shaped me into the mother I am today! #BlessedMomma

  55. Motherhood has taught me so much. The word that sums it up is love. My son has brought me so much joy and has also taught me to appreciate my parents in a whole new level.

  56. Motherhood has given me the greatest love in my heart that continues to grow each and every day.

  57. When it comes to my Love Language, physical touch is at the very bottom. I don’t like to hug or to cuddle or to really show any affection… but when I became a mom, my heart softened to that language and I get overwhelmed with joy when I hold my little boy or get kisses from him or when he says “mommy hold me.” He really has shown me a new kind of love.

  58. Motherhood has taught me love and patience, but also to give up on trying to get anything perfect, and that he honestly set me free! I didn’t realize how much I obsessed over everything being “just right” until I watched my oldest play sports. I had to learn to just let it go.

  59. Motherhood has taught me not to take myself so seriously. I’ve had no choice but to ease up and just laugh (even when it isn’t my first instinct!). It’s also taught me that God allowed grapes to ferment for a reason!!!! 🤣🤣🤣

  60. Motherhood has made me realize that even on the “baddest” days, they really aren’t all that bad. My kids always give me something to be appreciative and thankful for! They make the bad days good and the good days even better!

  61. Motherhood has given me a love that can’t be explained, but also the worst heartache that should never be experienced. My oldest son is 14 and the joy of my life. My younger son would be 6, but only lived for a short 26 hours. Two extremes, but two feelings that envelops me this Mother’s Day.

  62. Motherhood has given me a big family. We have 4 amazing kids all unique in thwir own way with their own interests and thoughts. We look forward to when they are older and have families and we have big gatherings. ❤️

  63. Motherhood, especially as an older first time mom, has taught me not to swear the small stuff and at same time to appreciate the little things. Kiddo gets brownie batter all over herself helping me in the kitchen? That’s what soap & water & the washing machine are for. She wants to wait to go in the house so she can watch the bunny in the front yard? Dinner can wait, we have a bunny to watch. She’s taught me to slow down & appreciate what is around me, and to enjoy things even if they’re a little messy. 🙂

  64. Becoming a mother gave me a purpose. I was lost before and I spent my time making a lot of bad decisions. Now my days are filled with many costume changes, playing superheros, happy meals (even though I said I wouldn’t), trying to attend every kid friendly event that I can, water parks and all things that a boy mom would love..
    However, becoming a mom also brought me a new kind of anxiety. So , dealing w that everyday. Wouldn’t change it though, my boy is my world.
    Thank you for the opportunity and Happy Mother’s day to all the momma’s!

  65. For me it would be motherhood to 3 beautiful kids. When people say when you have kids the love you have for them is like no other love. I love them more than anything in this world which what every mother would say. But truly and deeply they have been the blessing in my life that brings so much life and brightness to my days. Being a mother has taught me more about myself and about the experiences that can be described with so many words. Being a mother is this God given gift that makes me the person I am today!!

  66. Motherhood is a feeling like no other…and it changes daily! My youngest is now a teenager so we have entered those final chapters in raising children amd teaching them to be strong, independent adults. Parenting is fun, tough, full of joy and fruatration all at the same time, but O wouldn’t have it any other way!

  67. Motherhood has given me and unending capacity for love, patience, gratitude, thankfulness, and love.

  68. Motherhood has given me the opportunity to experience wearing my heart outside my body – my heart is wherever my children are.

  69. Motherhood has shown me the biggest, greatest love I’ve ever known or felt. I wouldn’t trade it for the world!

  70. Motherhood has taught me to hold tight and release, to treasure each moment, to pray more, and love totally unconditionally.

  71. I’m a mother of twin boys, & a 3rd boy with autism. Motherhood has taught me to be patient! What a blessing they are!

  72. My 3 kids have literally saved my life, too many times to count. I have severe depression, and when it gets really bad, I tell myself that maybe I’m not the BEST mom my children could have, but no one could ever love them more than I do. I would never do anything that would hurt them, and even though I feel like a terrible mom most of the time, I know that losing me would devastate them. So I just try every day to do better than the day before, and make sure I tell them all the time how much they mean to me.

  73. Motherhood is the greatest gift God has ever blessed me with. I have become quite the emotional person-SO. MANY. HAPPY. TEARS! I have 2 sweet little angels who have dreams bigger than I could imagine. They are so selfless and just want to help everyone. Their desire to make this world a better place has renewed my faith in Human Kind. I have never know such beautiful chaos! Life with them is eventful, hectic, joyous and wonderful beyond words! I cannot imagine a happy life without them! <3 (following on FB and IG)

  74. I am a mother of two beautiful children and motherhood has taught me the importance of being able to laugh at things, know when I need to apologize so they can learn from my mistakes, and to ask for help when I need it. It has also taught me to appreciate the small things like that quiet moment when they fall asleep and look so tiny! Or when you are on a walk and they reach out to hold your hand.

  75. Motherhood has taught me a lot about patience and how to have a sense of humor about the little things in life. I love the two little girls who made me a momma!

  76. Motherhood gives you a perspective on life that you didn’t know existed before. It brings out a love you’ve never known before and taps into a supply of patience you didn’t know you had. You wonder what did you do with all the time you had before kids!! Motherhood also helps you set priorities in your life involving your time, money, and values now that you are responsible for raising and rearing little human beings. And the years really do fly by!!

  77. Being a mother to my two wonderful children has givien me the gift of overflowing love. I love to watch them work hard to accomplish their goals and to see the joy in their faces when they are successful. They are amazing and give me so much love in return. I am extremely blessed to have them!

  78. Motherhood has given me three of the most amazing blessings I’m proud to call my children and now additional blessings, called grandchildren! Motherhood gives you abilities you never knew you had and a wonderful privilege to nurture and protect precious little beings. There’s an added bonus; preparing them to go out into the world and make a positive difference on the lives of others.

  79. Being a mom sure was a challenge being we adopted our son when he was almost 10. But with the challenge came joy and now we have 3 adorable grand daughters that light up our life. Being a mom was fantastic and being a grandma is super fantastic

  80. Wow… as a mom I have learned that Mother doesn’t always know best. This is on the job training and every preconceived notion we had about parenting goes out the window. I have learned things about my own mother that I never knew ( some I never wanted to know). We can read all these books and ask for all the advice in the world but it’s not necessarily going to work because your kid is different from everyone else. The best we can do is make sure they know they’re loved and that they know that any decision we make is intended for their best interests. It’s trial and error sometimes though.
    I have learned patience. I have learned to not drown in guilt when something goes wrong… you just fix it. I’ve learned that hugs can cure many things and so can cuddling and watching TV during thunderstorms. Dirty dishes can wait (unless it’s their chore), but we have a finite time with them before they spread their wings and fly and then cuddles and hugs will be mostly gone. I’ve learned forgiveness because teenagers and young adults. I’ve also learned that all their milestones are yours as well but how also to put them in the spotlight and take yourself out of it. I’ve learned many things as a mother including how to dodge projectile anything, but mostly the real meaning of what it is to love another human being unconditionally and without reserve no matter what they do.

  81. Humility and just about when you are comfortable with your life, it is time to take on learning something new!

  82. As I biological, adoptive and foster momma… I have been given so much. I’ve been given the gift to love so many from so many different places. To learn more about myself as well as receive the gift of family. I don’t live near any extended family and I’ve always wanted that so now that I have 9 children I am able to have that larger family. I’m beyond blessed and honored to be given the gift of motherhood.

  83. Well, my journey through motherhood, so far, has taught me what is most important about life. I used to pride myself on the cleanliness of my house… maybe I was even smug (idk). But having two little men in my house has taught me to balance what is important- learning and teaching the kids chores and life skills, but what is more important-loving and playing with them when they need me and I need them. My children have taught me so much about love and life in these few short years. The dishes can wait. And toys in the floor just means that we were spending time creating, building and just being together!

  84. Motherhood has taught me that clean and tidy is not always important—or possible—and that spending time with my daughter just has to come first sometimes. After all, they’re only little once.

    • Motherhood has blessed me with two beautiful gifts, my children. To the world you are a mother, but to your children you are their world, and that’s a gift we all have been blessed to receive.

    • As soon as kid 3 came, I had to let the little things go. Preach on sistah. 🙂 We have so much more fun now!!

  85. Being a mother has taught me just how strong I can actually be. My son is graduating college. I feel honored and proud to have survived the many stages of raising a boy. I have learned to let go and trust that I did a good job and he will make it in this world. Motherhood has defined who I am and has taught me strength, courage, trust and love in so many ways

  86. Being a mother has taught me just how strong I can actually be. My son is graduating college. I feel honored and proud to have survived the many stages of raising a boy. I have learned to let go and trust that I did a good job and he will make it in this world.

  87. Motherhood has taught me that the feeling of success and satisfaction seeing them grown and on their own is wonderful.

  88. I became a mommy later in life. I was a mommy to all of my younger siblings “i was the eldest”. I helped everyone raise their children, including my beautiful nieces and nephews, and raised my brother until he was 13. I loved helping and loving and was like a momma to many people till this day. When I was blessed by god and all the stars in the sky to have my own, Motherhood taught me so much. I was sooo scared. Motherhood has taught me that the love in a mother’s heart is infinite. Embracing it fully gives no bounds to patience, love,learning, forgiveness and how to deal with darn near every emotion Pandora unlocked when she opened that box in the greek myth. Its the most wonderfully tiring gift I have ever received, I would never give it back for all the treasure in the world.
