Spring Fling Give-away Drawing! April 1-14

The MDC Etsy Team decided that we needed to jump into spring with both feet so expect some really exciting things in April! To start it off right, we've got everyone's favorite...A Give-Away!!

We've put together all sorts of wonderful gifts for mothers and children. Check back again soon because there may even be a couple of late additions! See below for ways to enter to win ALL of the following (no purchase necessary, but it doesn't hurt!):

For the kiddos, you'll receive:
A wooden helicopter from Imagination Kids, a silk ring twirl toy and a rainbow wood bead necklace from Sun Anthem, a set of six small cars from Small Town Toys, a felt Totoro applique from Spunky Gal, pirate sandwich wrappers from Creations by Hippie Fairy Lover, a child's healing necklace from Stones of Healing, and a set of play-dough from MayaMade.

And for the hard-working mamas out there, we've got:
Bath bombs from Circle Natural Goods, beautiful bead bracelet from Little Queen Sheba, a stack of breastfeeding awareness bumper-stickers (to share!) and additional natural decals from Elemental Handcrafts, a Little Ones Sweet Dreams aromatherapy set with Need to Sleep Mist and customizable bed-time poem, and an herbal cloth trivet, both from MayaMade.

There are three easy ways to earn chances to win these collection of great items made by MDC mamas all over the country: Talk to us, talk about us, and shop with us! On April 15th, we'll put all of your chances to win (tickets) in a pool and randomly select one lucky person win it all!!!

How to earn tickets to go into the drawing:

1. Talk to us. Leave a comment here between April 1 and April 14. (Remember we need a way to reach you if you win, so make sure your email or blog is linked in the comment.) One comment entry per person. Comment = one ticket.

2. Talk about us. April 1 - April 14: Blog about our give-away! Leave us a comment linking to your blog. Blogging = two tickets!

3. Shop with us. April 1 - April 14: Turn your shopping habit into more chances to win! Purchase something from one of the participating stores listed and leave a note to seller that you want to be in the giveaway. $1 = one ticket. No limit!!

I LOVE the items featured here!

I will post something on the BabyCheapskate blog.

I am SO thrilled to have found these links to the gorgeous items on Etsy. Once taxes are paid I begin my Christmas shopping and I am going to buy EVERYTHING for my two children and more on Etsy this year. Santa is bringing handmade handmade gifts only from now on and until I have the time and skills to do it all myself, I will call on the talents of other Moms and gifted women!
