My Very First Giveaway!!!
I'm giving something away!!!
I'm pretty excited!
Back in January I received a completely random, and at first confusing e-mail. It was an e-mail through the blog contact form, and the name and e-mail address made me go, "huuuuh?" It was from an Aimee Berg, with a bushel & a peck variation e-mail address.....
But I'M Amy! And I'M Bushel & A Peck! Right?
Turns out, great names think alike!
Aimee Burg is a beautiful woman who had a problem, and made a solution for herself! On her website, www.bushelandapeck.co, her About page tells the tale of woe and dry, cracked lips, and how she started to make her own lip balms to remedy the situation!
Well, this wonderful woman found me and generously offered to send me a bundle of her amazing lip balms as an encouragement in my own personal journey into health, art, and living a well lived life!
The gesture made my day! Someone randomly reaching out to bless someone else with their gifts? What an amazing thing!
So, when my lip balms arrived, and I opened my first one to use it, I thought, "Oh my gosh, I loooove this!" Then I thought, if Aimee is willing to share, I should be too! : )
And here we are! I will send 2 of my lovely new lip balms to a randomly selected winner, and all you need to do to enter is to tell me about a time someone shared their gift with you!
I'm not really a popular blog, so if you're reading this right now and enter, you have a pretty good chance of winning!!! It would be nice if you shared the contest with your friends and family though, because sharing is caring (as my kids often remind me!).
My beauty needs are pretty basic. I'm not into flashy, multi-levelled self care processes! I never have been (read: lazy!)! My motto is: simple is good! So, these lovely lip balms fit into my motto nicely! There aren't 10000 ingredients you can't pronounce, and they don't smell whacky (you know you've been talking to someone and thinking "what is that strange smell", only to see them putting on Cranberry LipSmacker and going, "oh....". I'm not the only one that's happened to, I'm sure of it!)!
And let's talk about the care Aimee took to send me my gift? See that picture below? She wrote my name beautifully on the envelope, included a sweet hand written card, and just made it so special!
So, to enter, just tell me about a time someone shared their gifts with you, then fill in the info in the ballot below, and that's it! You're entered!!!
And don't forget to check out Aimee's website at www.bushelandapeck.co, or her shop on Etsy at BushelandaPeckLLC
The contest closes on February 26th, and if you win you'll be contacted on the 27th!
Best of luck!!!

One time this beautiful soul named Amy shared her passion for performing with me, not to mention her dance expertise and unyielding kindness when I really really needed it.

When I had my second child 7 weeks premature, I was so surprised by a bag full of wonderful goodies a handful of women put together for premature babies born in that hospital. It had a tiny knitted hat, tiny mittens and booties, and a small quilt, among other things. It was so wonderful to get this gift by these talented and kind women!

My dear co worker Kari, she shows me every day how to help kids better. She is such a bright soul and her knowledge blows me away. She is actually inspiring to me!

When we have children (3 babies), my faith in humanity is always restored. People always show up with food and handmade gifts. Warms my heart!

My neighbour who has a ploughed on his truck cleared my driveway for me a few weeks back after a big snow storm. He just did it out of the goodness of his heart! It took him maybe 5 minutes, but it saved me over an hour of hard work, and I was so thankful!

Just recently our family went through many losses of loved ones. A friend from church mailed us some Stress-Away essential oil blend and a diffuser bracelet. Very generous and well thought out gift. Although nothing can remove the pain of grief it sure meant a lot to know that someone cares.
