Well Isn’t That Precious

When I was growing up, my brothers and I would often pool our allowances to get my folks some nice birthday or Christmas gifts. I also enjoyed when my dad would take me shopping with him to “help” pick out something for my mom. Whenever I could, I would stand in front of the glass display at one of the local Hallmark stores – carefully examining the Precious Moments figurines and reading their titles until I found the perfect one.

Fast forward to today, proudly displayed in my hutch are a variety of figurines, including the large Precious Moment that was my wedding cake topper and one that was gifted to me by my grandmother. Now that I’m a mom, I don’t much think about peering into the Hallmark cases. Once I had kids, I would only step near such breakables when my children were not with me.

So when BSM Media offered to send a figurine to help promote Precious Moms, I was overwhelmed by flashbacks of those childhood shopping outings.

Thanks to PreciousMoments.com, I can peer through the virtual looking glass at all the wonderful figurines. Sans kid related bull in a china shop fears.

But there is more to the story. Precious Moms isn’t just about figurines. Actually, it’s nothing like that. The site is a wealth of useful information such as listings of volunteer programs that parents can do with their kids. Or how to prepare an emergency kit for your car. BSM Media even put together “The Precious Party Package” containing recipes, activities and a party checklist to take some of the stress out of planning a birthday celebration. Precious Moms has adult themed cheat sheets too. There is even a message board to interact with other Precious Moms!

Well, just like twins, Twinkies and buy-one-get-one-free offers… good things come in twos. The great folks at BSM Media and Precious Moments sent a second “Birthday Wishes With Hugs And Kisses” figurine along for one of my lucky readers.

    I LOVE the recipe for “Cool Treats”… YUMMY!!!!!

    I also found the article on having a spouse who doesn’t like to travel. I love to travel and my husband hates to. The article is called “Coping as the Non-traveling Spouse”.

    Thank you for the adorable giveaway.

    I love all the party ideas. What a great way to encourage parents to forgo the “chucky cheese” parties and throw a great party themselves!

    This was my first time on their site, and I did not know they had Disney figures. They closed the Hallmark store in our town, so it is nice to know they are available online. This birthday figure would be great for my niece’s 8th birthday. thanks!

    i found the video on how the figurines are made to be extremely interesting – from the drawings to the sculpting. the making of the mold and the painting. they are very beautiful pieces and i have a few already. would love to have another to join my collection.

  21. I can’t believe they have all these great articles on their website…like the back to school traditions and decorative veggies. These are all great ideas, super easy to read and do. Thanks for teh chance to win!
