Long Winter Farm Gift Pack

21 Jul, 2010 by in etsy 129 comments

Today’s makeover package was donated by LongWinter Farm on Etsy…About me:: I’m a 28 year old mom of two living in coastal Maine, where I share my life with goats, kitties, puppies, and my favorite boy, Joe. We spend the thawed months off grid in a yurt in the woods, which is like having our own personal summer camp. We even take discovery hikes and have sing-alongs. I like to live the organic homegrown lifestyle as well as I can, so I’m way into gardening and herbalism. I’m also a major craft addict, playing with sewing, knitting, spinning, felt crafts, candle making, embroidery, and of course, soaping! Yup, I’m one busy chick. Nope, I don’t take naps.

Check out my featured seller interview!

About Joe: Joe’s my very best friend, boyfriend, business partner, and yurtmate, and there’s a good 50-70% chance he’ll be the one packing your order. What’s he like? Well, he’s good at washing his hands, being pretty tall, having an Indiana twang, and randomly breaking into Rick Roll songs.

Sandalwood Vanilla Cleansing Grains

20 Jul, 2010 by in etsy, makeover, sageandmage, skin care 18 comments

Todays‘ giveaway is the first step in our makeover, help towards new skin brought to you by SageandMage…Writer, editor, Reiki practitioner, naturopathy student living in Melbourne, Australia with my beautiful cat Luna

If Sage and Mage was a real-life shop, it would be a small, old house. You would release the smell of lemon thyme by treading up a soft, green path to the porch. The porch steps would creak, a raven would call, and the door would open, welcoming you. Light would stream in the windows, illuminating shelf upon shelf of tinctures, treasures, spell boxes and potions. Strange and wonderful herbs would hang in bunches from the ceiling.

But what you are looking for would be in a small back room with the phantom scent of violets, in an ancient wooden cabinet, in a tiny drawer, in a tiny box… Welcome, and I hope you find what you are looking for…

To find out what’s in the cauldron, please have a look at Sage and Mage’s facebook page!/pages/Sage-and-Mage/121978711166491?ref=sgm

An all-natural, mostly organic blend to exfoliate and gently cleanse. Suitable for most skin types, but especially formulated for normal and/or combination skins. It smells heavenly – a deep, subtle blend of sweet organic vanilla beans and fresh sandalwood.

To Enter To Win a jar of cleansing grains: leave your name and email address below

Mushroom Bookmark Giveaway

16 Jul, 2010 by in etsy, mushrooms 23 comments

Today’s giveaway is from Etsy shop owner Alice Cantrell

Hello! I am Alice and this is my tiny shop.
I am a wife, mother, sewer, doodler, gardener, painter, teacher and collector.
I love simple lines and natural colors. Autumn days and camping nights. Vintage, well loved objects and good music. Walks in the woods and the smell of fresh bread in the oven. My faith and my family. My husband and I homeschool our six (yep, 6) kids and glean much inspiration for our learning and living from the natural world around us. Welcome!
I’ll put the kettle on.

My great-great-grandmother was a wife, a mother, and a poet. Her name was Marie Louise Smith Edgar (1851-1946) and it is one of her handwritten poems that makes up the background of these little bookmarks.

I have digitally collaged one of my watercolors over it (A multi-generational collaboration of sorts.) and added one of my favorite Einstein quotes. I have left the back blank for jotting down favorite pages and passages. A set of six, professionally printed, “Noteworthy Bookmarks” comes packaged in a clear cello sleeve. At 2″ x 6″, they are just the right size for tucking into your correspondence or gifts.

Alice has donated THREE packs of bookmarks to our blog readers.

Wolf Scrabble Tile Pendant Giveaway

13 Jul, 2010 by in etsy, tiny tree boutique, wolf 15 comments

Today’s ETSY giveaway goes with the newly released book LINGER and was donated by TinyTreeBoutique!

I live in Las Vegas, NV with my wonderful supporting husband & my two adorable cocker spaniel doggies. I have always made handmade things since I could remember. I remember when I was about 4 years old, my mom would get craft kits in the mail every month & I would help her with them. She was always making handmade things, even sold custom knitted sweaters at one time. She mostly knit & crocheted, but always did something. I have always treasured things handmade & love giving & receiving them, I just think that something handmade is so precious. And now I am lucky enough to be able to stay at home & make things for people to buy here on Etsy. It is so rewarding to know that people all over the world might be wearing something I made.

The Scrabble Tiles I use Are All Recycled From Found Retired Scrabble Games. Tiles are 18mmx20mm. Tiles are sealed with a thick coat of jewelry grade resin & a sterling silver plated bail is attached for hanging a chain or cord. I have a wonderful selection of chains & cords of all kinds available in my shop that look great with these. Scrabble tiles are water resistant, but not waterproof. I do not suggest wearing them while bathing or swimming. Like all small objects, please do not let small children play with them as they could cause choking. All of my designs are copyright protected. Images appear larger in photo than they actually are.

Thank you so much for stopping by my little “Tiny Trees Boutique”
