Giveaway: Product Junkie Approved ecostore

Eco Fresh
Eco Fresh - by klacustomcreations on

CONTEST CLOSED*** Winner is Dawn of Bee and Rose! Congrats!

After I had my son I really became concerned about the products I used on him and around him. The thought of putting something with chemicals on him or spraying a cleaner around him that is toxic was very concerning to me. The one problem I ran into when searching for products was that often they were not as effective. The soaps didn't seem to really clean the little guy up and the cleaning products left strange residues. I had the opportunity to use some fantastic products from ecostore. ecostore products are chemical free, they use plant based surfactants, simple mineral salts and essential plant oils and are very effective. If you read the ingredients they are actually things that you can pronounce and will know what they are.

Here is why ecostore is Product Junkie Approved:

The Vanilla and Lemongrass soaps have a nice lather and a lovely scent. I felt really clean after using the soaps and this is coming from a shower gel girl, the lather was amazing.

The Baby Shampoo had a very nice scent, lathered up nicely and left Will's hair squeaky clean. Here is the best part, it is tear free so no crying at all. Will has never been a fan of getting his hair washed. Will has crazy hair and the next day he was still sporting some good hair.

The Citrus Spray Cleaner is perfect for using on a variety of surfaces. I really like to use it on the kitchen counter, Will's play table and the dining room table. The best part is that it is a natural antibacterial cleaner. Being a germ freak this is very appealing to me and being natural and antibacterial at the same time is a major plus!

Would you like to win a product from ecostore?

First entry: Leave me a comment and tell me which product you would like to win: Soap, Spray cleaner, or Baby shampoo!

Extra entries: (for each extra entry leave a separate comment below)

Featured Reader: Let me introduce you to.....

La Dolce Vita

Hello friends and Happy Monday to you! I hope everyone had a great weekend! No surprise that we had more snow this weekend. We had a fairly lazy weekend which included a visit to our local museum!

I am very excited to introduce you to the beautiful Jennifer of Baby Makin(g) Machine.
Jennifer wears many different hats from news anchor, small business owner and much much more. I don't want to spoil her feature so please grab a cup of joe and get to know my friend Jennifer.


Jennifer of Baby Makin(g) Machine.


Me, my husband (Brian) and I have been married for four years. We adopted our 13-month old puppy last February. His name is Snoop and he's an adorable Sharpei-mix.

How did you start blogging?

I Have always been a fan of journaling. I write a few blogs on Myspace and a couple of years later (Last year I think) I started a family blog. I started feeling a little bored with that and just last November I started this blog with a specific purpose: Get as much advice as I can before I take the leap to motherhood.

If you are a parent do you have a parenting philosophy? If not a parent what is your blogging philosophy?

My parenting philosophy with Snoop is: Be a pack leader. But I don't think that's what you mean. I don't really have a blogging philosophy. I just go with the flow, have fun and hope for comments so I can be enlightened. I try to be completely honest, no matter how dumb it may make me look. I speak my mind and I think people can respect that.

You will never find me without......

My iPhone, and it's pathetic. It was my Christmas present and I'm pretty sure you won't find me more than a room away from that thing.

Day job:

I'm a TV news anchor/ education reporter. I also do voice over work, and make dog collars:

Favorite Stuff:

Music: Hip Hop, R&B, I'm in love with TI right now, and Jamie Foxx. I also like Beyonce, Rhianna, Lil Wayne, and other pop stuff.

Food: French fries are my favorite food. I also LOVE chocolate covered strawberries. Sub sandwiches and grapes are also my faves.

Tv/ Movies: The Lion King, Pearl Harbor, Sailor Moon, and pretty much all other Disney movies. I already have a DVD collection of ALL of the cartoon classics for my kids!

Reading: I loved the Twilight saga, Children of the Promise series, The Other Bolyn Girl, The Kite Runner, and many more.

If you had to wear a T-shirt with your favorite saying on it what would it be?

"Those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

Favorite stores to shop at:

Express, Ross, TJMaxx

Other good stuff from Jennifer:

I love people and I love writing. Blogging is really a fun new adventure for me. I'm glad I've been able to meet so many women all over the world, and connect and relate on similar issues.

Please leave Jennifer some comment love and be sure to visit her site. If you would like to be a featured reader please send me an email at Please do so soon since the wait is 4-6 weeks!

J is going to shave his head on March 21st and guess what for every Imagine necklace purchased I am donating $5 to this event.

How do you like your TWILIGHT?

I don't know what took me so long but I am finally reading the first Twilight book. I have made so many "Bite Me" necklaces that I thought I should check it out, see what all the hype is all about! I know some like to speed through and read this series as fast as they can but not me! I like to read just 1-2 chapters a night, I want to savor it like a glass of fine wine!

How do you like your Twilight?
How many books have you read so far?
If I added another Twilight inspired necklace to the collection
what should it say?

Did you know the movie is coming to video on March 24th, good thing since we never seem to make it to the theater unless it is a kids cartoon. I have a thing for reading a book and then seeing the movie, just love doing that! I can't wait until it hits our local rental!

You can click on the picture of the "Bite Me" necklace for product details!

It's been fun being able to write every day and (hopefully) have people interested enough to keep reading.

Take a peek..... Thousand Words Thursday

I often am asked where I do my work and how I get it done with Will at home. Here is a small peek into my work! First I don't have a studio, I wish I did. Maybe someday I will have a studio, for now I do my work on the dining room table so I can keep an eye on Will. Each letter is stamped one at a time and yes I do make mistakes. Having a "BAD" stamping day can be costly! If I don't like how a piece turns out I redo it.

Just some of my tools! I have several hammers and several different letter, design and number sets!

To get the letters to darken I actually tarnish the silver until it is black and then polish it back to a shine! Yes it is a lot of work!

A lot of elbow grease is involved in getting them all pretty! Just think about how long it takes to polish sterling silverware or a set of sterling candle sticks!

Me and my hammer are tight! I don't know what I would do without him!

I tend to do a bit of work and then a bit of play with Will and some days it can be very challenging but usually if I stop and give him one on one play time he then lets me have some time to work. What is nice is that I can stop and go often and pick right up where I left off. I check e-mails throughout the day to answer customers questions. People often ask me how I learned to make handstamped jewelry, well I spent 8 months teaching myself by trial and error. I started making it before many even knew it existed. I didn't take a class since they didn't exist. When I design something new I sketch it, try it out, sometimes scrap it, test it and then it finally gets listed. It has to be just right and if I wouldn't wear it I won't sell it. I want my work to be simple and original and pride myself in designing pieces that have meaning behind them, an example would be my "Keep Calm and Carry On" and my "I love you to the moon and back"

So now you have a small peek into my lil world. Some days it can be crazy and often I am behind on laundry but I am truly blessed to have a creative outlet and be home with my little guy!

Winter "Slush" Fest!!!!

Every year at my parent's lake house there is a Winter Festival on the lake. This year it was a "Slush" fest. I discovered that my boots are only water resistant not water proof! Will loved playing in the sloppy, wet mess and managed to have a snow ball fight and get a sled ride from Papa. Kane did his part and just stood there and observed, but he had to be a part of the action. It is hard to believe that we were on the lake and that in a several months it will be all thawed out. It was surreal seeing cars driving on the ice. So here are a few questions for you.

Would you take your car on a lake even if they say it is a frozen 12 inches deep? (I wouldn't!!!)

Do you have any fun winter activities? (I like snowshoeing even though I have only done it once)

Do you like snowmobiling? (It seems boring to me but hubby loves it and rides for hours at a time)

I am a warm weather girl and am still trying to figure out why on earth we live in the Midwest, I don't like winter and am sick of it!!!

P.S. I will be announcing the Featured Reader winner later today, so be sure to check back. I need to cut up over 135 entires and pull a name randomly, anyone want to help?

Featured Reader: Let me introduce you to....

La Dolce Vita

Hello Friends and Happy Monday! We spent the weekend at the lake at the annual Winter "slush" fest. It just figures of all weekends it was very warm in Michigan. On Saturday we hit 50's! I will share some pics later this week. I hope you all had a restful weekend!

I am very excited to introduce you to Jean Stockadle. Jean and I met at one of my favorite social networks. Jean is a fabulous woman who for many years has been helping other Mom's just like all of us. I encourage you head on over to her site and take a peek at her beautiful family and her beautiful work, but first read her interview!


Jean Stockdale of Jean Stockdale


I am married to Craig Stockdale. We have been married for 34 years and have 2 grown sons, Jason and Dawson. Jason is married to Patti and they have 18 month old Declan. Dawson is married to Kathryn and have 6 month old Grayson. The boys and their families are building their own households of faith and often show up on my blog! "I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in truth" (III John 4).

How did you start blogging?

I write and teach Bible studies for moms. I started in 2006 to encourage moms in the fine art of Christian mothering.

What is your parenting philosophy?

I became a Christian in 1978, just months prior to our first child's birth. As a young Christian, I knew that "training up this child in the way he should go" was incredibly important to Craig and me, but I felt ill-equipped and overwhelmed. My desire to honor the Lord and raise my son to know Him, drove me to become a student of the Word of God. My parenting style was Bible-based, using the precepts and principles of the Word of God to build strong convictions for mothering.

The book of Proverbs became particularly important to me as I earnestly pursued a life of personal holiness and practical righteousness. As my love for the Lord grew, so did my family. Dawson arrived 2 years later and joined our lively family. I certainly have not always done it right. Frustration and fatigue have been my enemies and I have done my share of poor parenting. But I beleive my boys knew I was pursuing the Lord and striving to be an ambassador of Christ in our home. Their understanding of my intent caused them to extend a lot of grace for my failures!

You will never find me without......

a cat on my lap. My faithful friend, Joseph, is a chocolate Siamese. He was a gift to me from the moms Bible study I teach when my oldest child went off to college. These moms knew I would be lonesome and needed "someone to mother." Joseph, unlike most cats, is very attentive to my needs and is seldom far from my side.

Day job:

My love for family and faith caused me to begin to teach a weekly Bible study for moms nearly 20 years ago. Although I did not set out to make this my life's work, the Lord has given me a passion for teaching the Word of God and encouraging women, especially mommas. When our boys were young, Craig and I lived in a secluded area-far removed from family or friends. I suffered from loneliness and longed for fellowship with other moms. I felt alienated and alone in my role as a SAHM. It is the memory of these early days, needing Biblical instruction and tons of encouragement, that has constrained me to invest in the lives of mommas. Raising children is a tiring thankless job most of the time, and I am determined to rise up and call moms blessed!

I currently teach a weekly Bible study for nearly 300 moms of toddlers to teens.Now, having raised and released 2 great men into the adult world, I also share about how to fully release adult children. My love for teaching and encouraging moms, has led me on an unexpected path. About 17 years ago, local churches began to invite me to speak at their women's events. This led to a speaking ministry. I am privileged to travel and speak at Women's Conferences, retreats, and events on the weekends. Should you be interested in inviting me to speak at your church, please contact Ambassador at

In 2006, after writing my own Bible studies for my group of mom at my local chruch, I sensed the Lord leading me to begin to publish my studies and produce accom panying videos. My studies are written to instruct moms in the Word of God and encouage them with the Spirit of God. My writing style is laced with practical illustrations, large doses of encouragment, and the liberal use of my sanctified imagination. These studies are self-guided and interactive. They can be done by an individual or, with the additon of the 10-set DVDs (or CDs), in a small group home setting, or as an addtion to your church's ciricullum. I currently have 6 completed video-driven studies being used in 24 different churches.

I launched a non-profit ministry called Standing Near the Cross, Inc. in 2008. For more information on my ministry to moms, go to by clicking on You will find a description of each study and will be able to view the first lesson and video clips of each study.

Favorite Stuff:

Music: Contemporary Christian

Food: Mexican

Tv/ Movies:

Reading: Much of my time is spent reading Bible commentaries for study, but I do enjoy reading for pleasure. I typically read Christian help books for growing strong in daily living or Christian historical fiction.

If you had to wear a T-shirt with your favorite saying on it what would it be?


Favorite stores to shop at:

Stein-Mart, Chico, Coldwater Creek, and Dillards

Other good stuff from Jean:

Craig and I live on 10 acres outside Memphis, TN. with 4 dogs and 1 cat. Craig and our boys work in a family landscaping business, Pine Grove Farm and Landscape. We attend Bellevue Baptist Church, our home church for nearly 30 years.

The Lord has expanded our ministry internationally. Craig and I have been able to make 6 mission trips to teach church leaders ho w to share the gospel, disciple new beleivers, and plant churches. Our travels have taken us to Uruguay, Nigeria, Nepal, Angola, and several trips to India to share the good news of Jesus Christ.
