Cate & Levi Puppet Giveaway!*CLOSED*

Cate & Levi ~
The Birth
As my wife and I awaited the birth of our first child, I noticed that there was a lack of one of a kind, responsibly made, and beautifully designed products for children. I decided to create a unique collection of products that would be intricately crafted and environmentally responsible.
Responsibility
The Cate & Levi Collection is HANDMADE at my studio in Toronto, Canada. Together with my talented production team, I oversee every aspect of this collection. All the materials are sourced as close to home as possible. This process cuts down on shipping and reduces our carbon footprint. The choice of reclaimed wool reduces demand for new materials that require both water and oil for production. My goal is for these items to leave the softest possible pawprint on our planet.
 One Of A Kind
No two Cate & Levi products will ever be the same. Each one is made from reclaimed wool whose colors and textures are individually selected. Not only is this process envir…

Have you heard of Smelly Washer yet? As I don't know about you~but I tend to "Forget"when I am doing laundry as I start my laundry and then I get busy doing something else and before you know it it is bedtime! Then~in the morning I go downstairs to remember that I have laundry in the washing machine..
So~I decided to use my Smelly Washer Cleaner to see if it got rid of the odor in the washing machine.It was so easy to use~Just fill the machine up~add Smelly washer to the water and let it soak all night. In the morning you will be surprised with a fresh smell coming from your washing machine! It was great~as even if you don't leave your laundry in the washer~you still should clean your washer as from using soaps and fabric softeners you can get mold and mildew in them.YUCK!
One bottle of Smelly Washer is good for 24 treatments or up to one year. It's all natural and it works. For $16.99 (+ shipping) for an entire year's worth of treatments it's definitely wo…

How Clarissa Burden Learned to Fly Book~Interview & Giveaway!*CLOSED*

How Clarissa Learned to Fly By Connie May Fowler

How Clarissa Burden Learned to Fly is the transcendent story of a young woman who, in a twenty-four hour period, journeys through startling moments of self-discovery that lead her to a courageous and life-altering decision.

This book is so powerful and exciting that once I started reading it~I couldn't put it down!From the fly in the beginning to the armadillo and rats in the end their actions are described in how it relates to what is going on in the story!









I was lucky enough to get a interview from Connie~
Two things prompted me to write How Clarissa Burden Learned to Fly.  The first was that I had a very difficult time dealing with my crumbling marriage, the divorce, and its aftermath.  I talked to a lot of people—women and men—and they all felt similarly and experienced long lasting levels of despair.  But few of them felt comfortable giving voice to their feelings because we tend to live in a get over it society. So I wanted to wr…
