Pardon this little interuption...

In a break from this otherwise emotionally intense week for me, I had to participate in the Spring Bloggy Giveaway carnival. (hundreds of prizes, potential new bloggy friends.... can't resist!)

For those of you just stopping by, I am a babywearing, college football crazed, beach-loving mama who loves to share with the bloggy world about my life as mother, wife, nurse, friend and my quest to discover and become who God created me to be. I have three boys- one in heaven, a two yr. old and my third on the way (coming this August). Add my Beagle pup and my part-time nursing job in the mix and life keeps me on my toes.

I am giving away a $25 gift certificate to my online sling store, BabyLove Slings. Just over a year ago I began selling my own ring-slings and other handmade baby gifts. It all started when a friend gave me a sling for the birth of my second son and it sparked this deep passion for babywearing that eventually resulted in my little business venture. I make and sell ring slings (for mamas and babywearers-to-be) as well as super-soft taggy blankets and some other fun things too.

Just leave a comment on this post by Friday the 25th at midnight telling me which of the items on my site you would like to own and I will pick one winner at random on Saturday, April 26th. I will contact the winner by e-mail and post it here so be sure to leave me your contact info so I can tell you if you win. If you have a blog, I would love to visit you too. New bloggy friends are so fun!
If you aren't lucky enough to win (I know the feeling- I never win!), here is a coupon for free shipping on any order over $30 at my online store. Just use the code FREESHIP at checkout (will expire the end of May). Thanks for stopping by and I hope you come back again sometime. Blessings!
**Comments/Entries are now closed. Winner will be posted shortly so stay tuned. Thanks for stopping by and please come again. Feel free to visit my online store to get a little sling lovin' of your own!**

Mrs. P April 21, 2008 at 11:22 PM  

We're hoping for our third and really need to figure out something for this time. With 2 pretty wild-but-in-a-great-way boys, we need to be as hands-free as possible.
I loved the Stormy Sea print because it just made me think of all the emotional turmoil we've been through that got us to this point and the One who has calmed that sea. ;)

Michelle April 21, 2008 at 11:38 PM  

I'd like to buy one of the kid slings since my daughter sees me wearing my son...she tries to put the sling on and put her doll in it.

Allison April 22, 2008 at 12:08 AM  

I would love the sweet spring ring sling (say that 3 times fast!!) :)

My youngest just turned three (wahhh) but I believe she would still LOVE the pink taggy blanket, as she loves to rub soft things. Thanks!

We like the lime sorbet doll sling.

(I admire your strength. I lost a baby through miscarriage and I wasn't sure that I wanted to try again. To have lost a child that you got to hold in your arms, then have the faith to have another child... I don't know if I could ever be that strong. May God continue to bless your family.)

I'd love to try the pink tag blanket.
