GIVEAWAY: The Little Yoga Mat! (US) -CLOSED-


The Little Yoga Mat is an eco-friendly mat that is the right size for kids under 5!
The mat can also be used for a play mat, sleeping pad, or a surface for an outdoor picnic!  The mats are lightweight with a non-slip grip and easy to clean with soap and water.

Benefits of yoga for children:
-Better flexibility, coordination, concentration and balance
-Boosts the immune system
-Reduce stress
-Improves circulation, posture, focus, and digestion

The Little Yoga Mat is made with NO toxic materials and the colors are created with soy based ink.  It is also biodegradable and recyclable.  Laytex, PVC, lead, and allergen-free.

My daughter absolutely loves her yoga mat!  The second she got it she wanted to start doing her yoga DVD Yoga by the Dozen!  I love that she has a fun thing to do on her own that is great for her in so many ways!  My husband does yoga every morning (helps his neck and back cope from working at a computer).  My little yogi comes up to our room first thing with her mat tucked under her arm so she can exercise with her Dad...adorable!  She likes to show off her warrior poses. :):)

Jensen Wheeler Wolfe founded The Little Yoga Mat:
"I was teaching yoga at my daughter's preschool and cutting adult-sized mats into quarters for the children." The smaller mats became a valuable teaching aid and the children loved having their own mats.  After class the parents would ask where they could buy one and then The Little Yoga Mat came to be.

The children's yoga mats come in 2 styles: Lotus and Sun.  They can be purchased for $25!

The Little Yoga Mat is giving one away! (US only)

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

What to do with Apricots: Homemade Fruit Leather

If you have access to an apricot tree I highly suggest making fruit leather.  This was my first time attempting any kind of dried fruit and it turned out heavenly!
Plus my house smelled great all day!!  And if you read a recent post you can see why that would be

Apricot Fruit Leather

4 cups chopped apricots

Add apricots and a 1/2 c of water to a saucepan on low heat.

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)

Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…
