I’ve been checking my traffic (kind of obsessively) since launching Alt-Mama, and I’m delighted to report that the numbers are great. I’m so glad you’re all stopping by! Thing is, we must still just be pouring the drinks at this party… Cuz for the number of you that there are hanging out here, the room is pretttty quiet. And something tells me I’m not the only loud person here. I figure y’all must just need an ice-breaker, a proper opportunity to introduce yourselves. I, for one, would love to know who I’m talking to. I’d also love to get you talking back.
So, I’m busting out a bribe.
If it’s your first time here, welcome! If not, welcome back! Wanna play my Giveaway Game for a chance to win some sweet schwag?
Here’s how it’s done: comment on this post, and tell me something about yourself. Don’t be shy. Share with the class. Are you a mom? A blogger? An enthusiast of some kind? Whatever you feel like saying, have at it. Can be a sentence or a paragraph-- it's all good. Confessions are cool, too, if they leave you feeling lighter. No judgments in the Alt-Mama zone! I know you’re funny, smart, engaging, cool bunch, and I can’t wait to read what you have to say!
Don’t forget to put your email address in the appropriate field while commenting. No one will see it but me, and that’s how I’ll let you know if you’re one of our two lucky winners.
Wait, what? I haven’t told you what the prizes are yet? Where are my manners? Check this out:
Maple Shade Kids serves up adorable décor designs and accessories for kids’ rooms, and is run by—yeah crafty ladies!— Wanda Hirsch, mom to a ten-year-old daughter and seven-year-old identical twin boys. She discovered her talents by making items for her children’s rooms, working in her New Hampshire farmhouse… and simply kept going. She creates her beautiful wares from a combination of FSC-certified wood and rescued wood (FSC certified wood is sustainably harvested wood coming from well managed forests and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council).
I commissioned Wanda to create a shelf and a hook rack for Kaspar’s room, and LOVE love love what she made. Everyone comments on these sweet, unique pieces. They’re instant-heirlooms. I love them (did I mention that)?
Wanda’s now generously offering two items up for you Alt-Mama readers! The first is a set of Owl Art Clips (or the birds, if you prefer), and the second is an 8-inch Raccoon Wall Art Collage. Click on the highlighted words to get measurement details and multiple views.
So get to it! Drop a line in the comments and say hello! I’ll put your names into a hat and choose two winners next Tuesday, July 5th (I’ll announce the winners here and then email you directly). Good luck!
