GIVEAWAY - "Find It On Etsy:" MamaSan Maternity! (US/CAN) -CLOSED-

Winner Maternity apparel on Etsy? Absolutely! MamaSan is not your mama's maternity store. This specialty Etsy shop is sporting an alternative maternity clothing line that helps us mama's stay looking hot during pregnancy, or anytime. MamaSan says: "You don't have to be pregnant to wear MamaSan!" So I'll tell you now, I will be returning to her Etsy shop to get more! I'm loving this fun style! MamaSan was founded by "an expectant mom who unsuccesfsully  searched the ends of the earth for something cool to wear, while struggling to preserve her edgy style....   Just because your pregnant doesn't mean you have to stop looking cool.  We know you want the same edgy style, but with the extra comfort for your growing bump. Our designs allow you to look sexy and rocker-chic throughout your pregnancy and well beyond your 9 months of glory."  I was able to review two items from MamaSan. I'm a lucky girl, I know. Above, th

Flour Lawn Stars for the 4th of July!

I posted about what to do with expired flour last year and was reminded about flour lawn stars!  I first saw the idea from Pink and Green Mama  (a great blog to check out!) I cut out a star template out of an old box with a box cutter.  I could have ended the activity right there with how much fun my kids were having with the cardboard stars. :) Then you lay down the template and water the area.  After it's wet you can sift flour to make your star.  I found that it took at least a cup of flour per star.  But if you have older, more controlled kids doing it you could probably get away with a lot less.  Plus we use a push mower (non-motor) so our grass stays a bit longer than most :):) Yes, I used the edit feature to green up my lawn a

GIVEAWAY: Happy Napper! Pillow/Plush Toy! (US) -CLOSED-

Winner Have you heard of Happy Nappers ??  They start out as a pillow and turn into a plush toy!  The pillow also has a doorbell and when you push it you can hear the animal snoring, then waking  The kids LOVE THIS!  Coppins Gifts has many to choose from, here are a couple more of my favorites: My only concern with the pillow was that if my child was sleeping on it and hit the doorbell they would wake up freaked out.  But I tested it by laying on it myself several times and it can't be done.  Unless of course you have a severely pointy cheekbone, even then it would be tricky. :)  I guess they anticipated that problem. There is no question that my kids love this pillow/toy.  Luckily it hasn't sustained any tug of war injuries yet from my two sharing impaired kids.  Although I'm not too worried because it is made to handle them. You can find Happy Nappers at Coppin Gifts for $24.95 and you can keep up to date on sales by following Coppins Gifts on Fac

GIVEAWAY: Earth Mama Angel Baby! (US/CAN) -CLOSED-

Review by Aimee Winner I was drawn to Earth Mama Angel Baby because of my desire to include more organic and natural products for my body and baby to be. (Yep, I'm expecting! Yay! ) So, with that on the horizon I love that Earth Mama uses the "highest -quality, certified-organic" herbs and oils for their products, including: "teas, bath herbs, gentle handmade soaps, salves, lotions and massage oils." From Earth Mama, Angel Baby Organics website: " Earth Mama Angel Baby's pregnancy, childbirth and baby products were, ahem, born of our sincere faith in the natural process of birthing babies.
