My Away Giveaway!!

Life is pretty busy these days! I just welcomed a new baby into the world and that has been keeping me busy. I definitely do not want to neglect my blog so I decided to just take a break. While I’m taking a break, I’ve decided to do a giveaway. I’m calling it my Away Giveaway. It fits, right?


Using Rafflecopter, you have two ways to enter the giveaway. First, you can leave a comment on this post giving me some parenting advice! Even if you don’t have children, you can still leave some words of wisdom. Secondly, you can use the giveaway graphic above, and pin it to your own Pinterest boards or any other Pinterest collaborative boards. For this entry, make sure to leave the Pinterest URL.

So there’s two ways to enter. The giveaway starts today and ends October 31st. On November 1st, I’ll announce the winners and make my return to full-time blogging again.

So what do you win? Well, two people will receive ALL…yes…ALL new items that I add to my store for the rest of this year. Pretty cool, right? So enter and tell all your friends!

  1. Everyone always says "sleep when the baby sleeps" and I agree, but if you are like me, you will use that time to get things done. So my advice is have your husband sleep in one weekend day and you get to sleep in the other weekend day. My son is 16 months old and we have done this since he was born. It gives you one day to catch up on sleep you will desperately need. :) Also, enjoy every minute, even the tough ones. You will miss them ALL when they are over.


  2. My baby is a six pound minpin, so I don't have anything too amazing. However, I do love love love the parents who read with their kids and are kindly consistent. Those are my favorite types of parents to work with!
    I Want to be a Super Teacher

  3. Awwww congrats on your new bundle of joy. Enjoy your time with your precious baby.

  4. Congrats!!! My advice is...cherish every moment--the big ones, the little ones, and the ones you don't even realize are moments!!! They grow up too fast. :)

    Live Laugh and Love to Learn

  5. Congratulations! Love & more love! You can never give too much. :-)

  6. I'm not a parent, so my only recommendation is "pray."

  7. I have 3 and my advice is to just enjoy every moment! Take lots of pictures! Congratulations!

  8. As a teacher I'm always telling parents to read to their children.

  9. Congrats! My advice is to take all advice with a grain of salt. Everyone thinks they're the expert. Listen, but in the end, follow your gut and pray A LOT! Enjoy every minute. It seems like you blink and the kids are in school. It's amazing how much your life will/already has changed and you'll never be able to remember what life was like bk (before kids)

  10. Congrats on the new baby!! I had my baby yesterday and today she's off at college!! :o) Enjoy each minute because they all go by too quickly. Don't worry about the laundry or the house - spend your time with that baby! :o)


  11. I have a teenager and a three year old. The best advice I can give is to have lots of understanding and patience!!

  12. Do what you feel is best for your child. After all, you are the mother, and mother knows best!

  13. Congratulations on your bundle of joy! Enjoy your journey with your baby. Take time to enjoy the little things, take naps so you'll feel refreshed- there's nothing like you sleeping and waking with your baby. Take lots of pictures- they grow way too fast. REST, REST, REST everything will still be there when you get up. Your baby will need you to be well rested and ready to go. Take care of yourself so you can take care of your baby.

  14. Congratulations on the new baby! I am not a parent yet, but my recommendation is to read to them often! It is one of my favorite memories with my family.


  15. As the mother of three grown daughters and ten grandchildren I can agree with many of the suggestions from previous comments. However, there will be challenges ahead so always keep the following verse in mind. Proverbs 22:6 says to "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." During those trying times I relied on God's promise found here. True to His promise, He saw us through those times and today all three of my daughters are Godly women, serving God and relying on this promise as they raise their children. God Bless and enjoy that precious little one!

  16. Congrats on your new little one!!! Enjoy this time... I am not a parent, but the teacher in me (and you too I'm sure) always tells new parents to read, read, read with their child. Those are some of my best memories - reading Trixie Belden books with my mom and snuggling in the big chair with my dad while he read to me. :)
