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!
