Taking My Cues From Mother Earth

Sharing Joy- A Waldorf Goody Basket Giveaway!

78 Comments

It’s been a long time since I’ve hosted a giveaway, hasn’t it?  Now seems like the perfect time to share a little love.  You see… my family is expecting a big blessing in a little package.  Yep, that’s right!  I hadn’t planned on this quite so soon, but we’re pretty excited.  It was a little worrisome to begin a pregnancy with food poisoning!  But, I’m thinking maybe it helped to really cleanse my system and have a fresh start, as I’ve been feeling great lately.  When I was meditating recently, I had a beautiful vision.  I was walking into the woods and came upon a circle of spirits- angels, elemental beings… holding hands.  Each one was glowing in a different color, and I walked towards them and joined hands with them.  They began to walk, then run in their circle formation until they were spinning so quickly that I became dizzy, so I sat down inside the circle to watch them.  Their colors began to merge into a great rainbow and spiraled above them, glowing into the sky.  When it reached the heavens a bright ball of golden light began to descend down the spiral- lower, lower, and lower- right down into me.  It was my baby’s spirit.  This really gave me a sense of peace about the timing and the circumstances of this new child we are preparing to receive.  There was such a sense of wonder and delight in that circle, and when I close my eyes I feel I am still there.

So back to the giveaway! It includes 6 sheets of Stockmar modeling beeswax…

6 sheets of Stockmar decorating wax, with a lovely 100% natural beeswax candle just waiting to be decorated from Big Dipper (it will burn for 60 hours and fill your home with a soft, sweet honey fragrance!), as well as three heart-shaped wax cutters in three sizes…

a “Learn To Knit Kit” from Peace Fleece, featuring 2 mini skeins of yarn, a set of 6″ wooden knitting needles hand-painted in Russia, a button, and instructions to make a “Peace Pocket” with a button to hold special things, as well as a hair tie or scarf for your bear or doll- all wrapped up in a sweet little sewn bag with handle.

A small natural straw Bolga Basket, holding seveal beautiful ounces of merino wool “fairytale” rovings, raw sheeps’ wool (washed, but still with a bit of veggie matter- bits of hay and such- ready to be carded), and 6 pieces of 100% wool felt in orange, yellow, spring green, light blue, ultramarine, and lilac.

Six peg men and six peg angels…

And to round it all out, a full size Weleda Iris facial cream, a pocket gnome, a set of Sarah’s silks string games cord, and three pieces of teasel to make a hedgehog or mouse family for your nature table, like so.

To enter to win, please offer a wish, a prayer, or a blessing for this new little one on the way.  For more chances, share this giveaway however you wish (word of mouth, an email to a friend, facebook, or blogging… each share is a chance to win, so just tell me (in one comment, please!) about how you’ve participated and you’re entered.  I’ll announce the winner on Monday, and don’t be worried if your comment doesn’t show up right away- I probably won’t be around to moderate very much as my husband has the week off and we have lots of projects and family fun planned.

Update: Congratulations, Moriah!

I’ll be back next week to share some of my homeschooling plans for September and the rest of the Waldorf Mama home management binder!

  1. Many Blessings to you and your newest little one ❤ What a special time!

  2. Blessings on your golden light-filled baby and on your family, especially on the older siblings!

  3. What a beautiful giveaway for a beautiful blessing! I absolutely love the dream you shared, what a lovely vision!
    I will start with a wish for you-
    May your pregnancy and delivery be peaceful and joyful. May this little one bring love and light to you and your family.
    For the little one-

    P.S. I shared this on facebook 🙂

  4. I will share the quote I often write in cards as a wish, directed toward the new one.

    “I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you’ll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you’ll make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind.” ― Neil Gaiman

    A new baby is so special, congratulations.

  5. Many blessings to your family as it grows! We just welcomed our fifth, and she is such a gift! Thank you for such a lovely giveaway!

  30. What a wonderful happy surprise! May your pregnancy be contented, peace-filled and healthy, and may your sweet little one come exactly when he or she is ready and not a moment to soon!

  34. I am so happy for the upcoming new baby for you and your family. I have a 2 year old son and have noticed that I am longing for the soft, sweet smells of a newborn. Your dream was amazing thanks for sharing.

    Healthy, positive vibes headed your way.

  35. I’m wishing you all health and joy. I am also wondering if you might want to get your gallbladder checked for stones. I thought I had food poisoning with my 3rd and 4th child. I was even in the hospital with IV and no one thought to check. I got a great Dr. and they found a HUGE stone after the fact. Same symptoms as food poisoning for me. It might be worth checking for you..having babies..and baby weight.. really seems to promote them.

  36. Congratulations on this new chapter of your family life! May you feel strong, healthy and connected to new life and they beauty of creation throughout your pregnancy, may your children wait in joyful, patient anticipation for their new sibling, and may you have a blissful, beautiful birth, and may you welcome the perfect missing piece to your family puzzle. Namaste.

  55. Thank you for sharing the gift of your knowledge and creativity. I home schooled three children who are all adults now and am expecting my third grandchild-all of whom will also be home schooled. Your children and you are obviously already blessed!! To have that constant connection, the bonding, trust and sharing of your lives every day. It’s growing together- because we should never stop growing. My wish then, for your new babe is simple. Never forget that each and every day is a GIFT and always feel full of His love.

    And for both you and the little one, I cannot say it better then Apache:

    May the sun bring you new energy by day,
    May the moon softly restore you by night,
    May the rain wash away your worries
    And the breeze blow new strength into your being,
    And all of the days of your life may you walk
    Gently through the world and know its beauty.

  72. Welcome to the world. I can’t promise it’s a good place. But your mama and papa will keep it real. Blessings little one. One Love,

    Kathi

  73. baby blessings to you! very generous giveaway!

  74. Blessings to your little one coming and your family and you. I just found out I am welcoming one too and it was so comforting to read your meditation, I just found your site through a friend and look forward to more as I try to balance falling in love with a new one with being in love with my family and supporting myself.

  75. Congratulations on the new pregnancy. I offer you a blessing of protection on you and your little one. May the white light of Jesus Christ envelope and protect you both. May this little one grow to do great things in this world and move others towards the spiritual path. May you both bask in His glory as you expand your family. I ask this in Jesus name. Amen.

  76. Many blessings to you and the little being of light growing inside you.

  77. Congratulations, Becca. Even though the giveaway is over, I wanted to offer my good wishes and blessings.

    I hope you have a smooth and uneventful (medical-wise) pregnancy and birth. I’m slightly jealous that your heart gets to grow even bigger in order to, and as a result of, welcoming your third child. Only slightly jealous. Only.

    I’m glad your two kids get to have another sibling. They’ll really enjoy each other as grown-ups. But good luck in the meantime!

    Sending lots of love, and even more energy and stamina all the way from California. What’s the postage cost on that?

    Warmly,
    Samantha
