Help for At-risk moms and their babies and a Boppy Giveaway

Congratulations to Sandy N for winning the Boppy Giveaway! Thanks to all who entered.  Don’t forget to click to help ask risk mothers!

 

I was recently contacted by The Boppy Company to share about their Mother’s Day Support Program.  And, because The Boppy Company is dedicated to giving away their pillows to at-risk mothers and their babies I was thrilled to share about what they are doing.

The Boppy Company has plans to give away $20,000 worth of their pillows to at-risk moms and their babies, but they need your help!

You can participate in The Boppy Mother’s day Support program by just a click.  There is no donation required.  With just a click you can help at-risk moms and their babies be encouraged to breast-feed as they are supported by the Nurse-Family Partnership. I really love it that the Nurse Family Partnership has a mission to help first time moms succeed! [Read more…]

Congratulations to All of Our Winners!

Thanks again to all who entered as well as those who sponsored are blog launch event!  It was a success!  If you missed reading about any of the great local mom businesses that sponsored our blog launch event, take a second stop by, and read a bit about their products and offerings.  As a mom, my hearts desire is to support other moms in their budding business ventures.  I love to see moms do what they are passionate about, what sets them on fire and if that helps them to make it financially possible to stay at home with their kids more power to them!  As we join as moms and all support each other, I know that we will have a stronger mom community here in the High Country and be able to bless our families through our gifts and strengths.

Once again, Congratulations to all our winners!  If you haven’t been contacted yet by our sponsor please send us an email! [Read more…]

Review and Coupon: Pixie Fluff Cloth Diapers

Recently, we received a Pixie Fluff water proof pocket diaper with plastic snaps as well as a bamboo hemp trifold insert to review so that we might be able to share with you its amazingness.  It looks quite similar to the one pictured to the left.

Cloth diapers are not new to us, but pocket diapers are.  For some reason I had always heard horror stories about stuffing them.  But, this wasn’t the case.  My little one loved these diapers.  I think it even made her more comfortable to wear a pocket diaper because of the wicking jersey on the inside.  This diaper was very cute, stylish, and comfortable.  My little girl had a blast roaming around in it.

And, I must not forget to mention how incredible well made these diapers are!  Dixie Jarman, the owner of Pixie Fluff is a local High Country mommy and I can tell that she takes so much pride in her work.  This diaper will fit up to a 32 pound child (and I personally think even a little bit larger child than that).  This diaper easily last from when your child is small until when they grow out of the diaper.  And, it can easily be machine washed and dried (as long as your dryer isn’t too hot to melt the snaps).

Giveaway: Green Mother Goods

This giveaway is now closed! Congrats to Lis who won the Girlfriend Global super cute skirt sash dress! Thanks to all who entered!

Local and eco-friendly Green Mother Goods offers awesome wooden toys, organic clothing, fair trade gifts, jewelry and many hand-made personal care products.  If you haven’t stopped in, Green Mother Goods can be your one stop shop for local purchasing in the High Country.

I really can’t say it any better than the women who put the store together, here is what they have to say:

Green Mother Goods is owned and operated by a group of women – all mothers, then friends and now business partners.  We came together in this effort to provide quality products that are good for our families and good for our Mother Earth.

The dream for Green Mother Goods began within each of us.  As we started families we found the search for good, eco-friendly products was a bit of a hassle.  We wanted a place to buy basic necessities for our families.  But we didn’t want to support sweatshops or companies who have no regard for our planet and we didn’t want to purchase products from countries with no regard for basic human rights.  So, fed-up with a serious shortage of options we came together and started Green Mother Goods.

We are a locally owned business who cares.  We research the products we carry.  If you buy it here you can rest easy, knowing that the product is a good choice for you, your family and our Earth.  We will not buy from companies who use sweatshop labor.  Our products are fair-trade which means a good wage is provided as well as good working conditions for the employees.  The companies we do business with have a real commitment to our planet and its people.

We also buy and consign local goods whenever possible.  The High Country is home to some amazing artists.  We are proud to showcase local arts and crafts.  Buying local helps conserve resources (the products don’t come in on huge tractor-trailers) and the money stays in our community.

Now that is something that I want to support!  Don’t you?

Since, Green Mother Goods is also a big supporter for pregnancy, childbirth, women and babies.  I am excited that they are giving away a really cool Global Girlfriend Super Sash Skirt/Dress to one Endless Blessings reader!

  This super cute stretchy cotton dress retails for $32 is one of their best sellers.  This cute dress is not only for great every day wear, but it is multi use for pregnancy as well as easy healing afterwards.  You can wear it five different ways as a skirt or as a halter!

Green Mother Goods is offering your choice and any size of black, wine or blue as well as Olive, but Olive is only available in XL.  Take note that the dresses run a little small so the XL is more like a Large.

Don’t you want one?  I know I do! You can run on down to Green Mother Goods right now, located next to Earth Fare in Boone or you can enter this giveaway!

Here’s How to Enter:

**Mandatory – Check out the new Green Mother Goods website and tell me one product that you’d like to have. Please leave a comment on the bottom of this post to enter the giveaway.

Wouldn’t you just love to walk in your home and feel at peace?  Ah, I would.  A home should be a haven, a place for relaxation, a place where you make memories and enjoy the atmosphere.  The word tranquility comes to mind when I think about what a home should feel like.  Wouldn’t you love to invite people to your home and know that they feel relaxed and at peace there?  I know that I would…

And, as I look at the work of Betsy Cain that is exactly what I feel.  I’m about ready to invite myself over to her home.  Because, I am sure that it is a resting place of relaxation, even with two little boys running around.

Betsy Cain is in the process of launching her new business Sweet August Interiorsand as you can see she has quite an eye for beautiful design and a talent for the business.  Here is what she says about design in her words:

Beautiful design is a passion for me.  Especially when it comes to home decor.  From my childhood bedroom to the older house my husband and I are currently renovating, I cannot help but reimagine spaces.  I love designing, decorating, & remaking that which is in need of refreshment.  I believe a home ought to reflect its inhabitants, their lifestyle, and their loves.  A home should be comfortable, enjoyable, functional, and lovely.  If it can be kept organized, all the better!  It is the backdrop for everyday life, a place we will spend many moments, creating many memories. I can’t wait to assist you in coming up with a plan to beautify your living spaces and make them function according to your lifestyle and goals.  I look forward to hearing from you soon!”   ~Elizabeth Cain

Giveaway: Gift Certificate to the WeeCycle Children’s Consignment Sale and A Pre-Sale Pass!

This giveaway is now closed! Congratulations to Karen who won the WeeCycle consignment sale and pre-sale pass! Thanks for all who entered!

Have you been to the WeeCycle Children’s Consignment Sale yet in Boone?  Last season I got several great items from the WeeCycle sale at really great prices.  I really love consignment sales for multiple reasons and this is a wonderful one if you live in or around the Boone area.

Here are my top reasons to visit theWeeCycle Children’s Consignment Sale:

1. Gently Used Items For Sale – Who really needs new kids clothes?  I mean typically most kids clothes outgrow their clothes and are still in good shape.  Especially when those little ones are small.  Kids grow right before your eyes practically!  And, toys who really needs new toys?  I mean used toys are just as good as new right?  And, your kids really don’ t know the difference.

2. You Can Make Some Dough – If you have items you don’t use anymore why not sell them?  I mean seriously, it makes sense.  Why keep them sitting around collecting dust if you could sell them and put a little extra cash in your pocket!  You get 60% return on your sold items.  That is a better return than any of the other consignment that I have participated in.

3. Great Giveaways! Many local sponsors come together and giveaway some great loot!  Endless Blessings is giving away a FREE doula service and nutrition plan!  Can I get a whoot whoot? It is always fun to win some great prizes!

When is the sale? 

The Spring 2012 sale is Sat., March 10th – Sat., March 17th, 2012.  From 10am – 6pm M-F, 8am – 6pm Sat., Closed Sunday

Where? 

687 George Wilson Rd., Boone, NC 28607

Don’t miss it!  WeeCycle Children’s Consignment Sale does and incredible job keeping the atmosphere clean and comfortable.  They really take pride in keeping shopping easy by keeping everything organized.  Don’t miss out on this great chance to clothe your kids for less!

And, great news for Endless Blessings readers!  The WeeCycle Consignment Sale is offering a $25 Gift Certificate and Pre Sale Pass to one winner!  Just enter below!
