January Giveaway

Congratulations to the winner of our December giveaway, the Sheepish Grins holiday soaps, Lindsay Stehno.

(Please excuse the lack of photos. WordPress is being cranky tonight and won’t let me upload any photos. )

You all are going to LOVE our January giveaway – it’s something for Mom! Momma Nature Cashmere Creme ($24.50 value) is the most luxurious hand cream I have ever had the pleasure of using.


Here’s what the manufacturer has to say about it:

Unbelievably rich, creamy, moisturizing and gentle! Enriched with organic hemp seed and calendula oils. No chemicals, no parabens, no mineral oils – only pure softness! Can be used on hands, body or face. Gentle enough for the whole family. May be helpful with skin sensitivities. A little goes a l-o-o-o-ng way.

Ingredients are:

Calendula oil, shea nut butter, organic hemp seed oil, avocado oil, sweet almond oil, vegetable glycerine, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, aqua, emulsifying wax, potassium sorbate, tocopherol (Vitamin E), grapefruit seed extract.

Now, I have known about this Cashmere Creme for months now. And I read the above description, thought, “Huh, that’s nice” and then immediately thought “But there is no way that I or anyone else would pay almost $25 for a 2 ounce jar of hand cream. But then I heard from another retailer in Missouri that once she put a tester out for moms to try it, they were flying off the shelves. So on a whim, I added one jar to my next order of Jellystone and Grandma El’s. Ordering testers of new products is always a little bit like Christmas. I unscrewed the lid and oh my! the delicious smell! A combination of lavender, chamomile, and some creamy shea with hints of almond.

The best part was yet to come. Have you ever touched a flower petal in the spring? Fresh, cool, impossibly silky? THAT, my friends, is how Cashmere Creme feels on your skin. Light, but luxurious, it leaves your hands feeling intensively moisturized for about five minutes and then soaks in so your hands don’t stay very greasy at all.

We have one jar that you can win, and as soon as I get my tester jar back from my mom, we will have a jar in store so you can try this magic for yourself.

To Enter:

1. Get 1 entry every time you visit the store (and try out the tester too!)

2. Add the item “monthly giveaway” to your cart with any online order this month.

3. Comment here and share your New Year’s Resolution. Mine is that I’m going to spend a few weeks or months decluttering our house, making many trips to Goodwill and filling lots of trash bags with the stuff not even Goodwill wants. Starting wtih the kids’ toys!

    Mt news years resolution? To make a sincere effort to use the elliptical machine we bought LAST January before I got pregnant. I need to carve out at least 20-30 minutes three times a week. Shouldn’t be a problem with a two year old, three month old, tax season and everything else I have to do right?

    • I hear you! Our rec center has childcare twice a week but the catch is that you have to reserve your spot 24 hours in advance. It’s worked like a charm, though, because once I make that call and schedule the time, then I HAVE to go!

    My new years resolution is to be more consistent at cooking meals for my family by creating a weekly menu of our favorite meals. Also, Lord willing, to not get pregnant in 2013. πŸ˜‰

    Sounds awesome! My resolution this year is to get my toddler and husband eating healthy. The boy used to be an amazing eater but has recently been wanting only wheat or milk products, or anything sugary. My husband eats well at home but has always appreciaed when I pack his lunches so he doesn’t have to eat out for lunch. I need to start doing it!

    I resolved to finish at least half of our unfinished home projects (paint the baseboards, put in new mirrors in bathrooms, etc)

  5. I don’t really make New Year’s resolutions, but I did make a New Mom or New Baby resolution after our newest baby was born in August: To be a more patient, peaceful, more joyful mom. I am working on it each day!

    This hand cream sounds wonderful!
