We would like to thank everyone who has provided information on the prizes that they have not received from several of Teri Hardy’s blogs; namely – Motherhood Defined (formerly known as Mom to Bed by 8), The Iowa Mom, and Mom Powered Media. Here are the giveaway winners that reported their prize packages were never received and that Teri Hardy refused to respond to their repeated attempts to contact her about collecting their prizes.
We’ve created a Pinterest board where these giveaways are located. If you have information you would like to add to it as well – email me at LifeInAHouse@outlook.com for an invite.

We would love to hear from the daily winners to confirm/deny that they received their prizes.

Bloggers Employed by Mom Powered Media
Patti is out $500. She was employed by Teri to write for Mom to Bed by 8. She wrote several posts and was never compensated for the posts as agreed. Teri changed the author name on the posts to her own and has refused to take them off the website after repeated attempts to contact her have been ignored. Patti also won a Hello Kitty silver necklace in the Cyndee Wells auction but was told the person who offered the necklace did not ship to Canada. So Teri later told Patti that she would have the necklace shipped to her directly and she would then ship it to Patti herself. It was never mailed.
Sharon won a position working with MPM in the Rude Mom / Cyndee Wells Auction. She also won 20 round up posts. She has not been paid the employment wages due to her in the $1,500 to $2,000 range.
