What's the big deal about Young Living

Win a Free Apron!

I entered the Mommy Life Apron Contest and won first place! WooHoo! The prizes Barbara so sweetly offered are: The Mommy Survival Guide, written by Barbara herself, and this beautiful apron... the same apron I am selling!

Since I have plenty of these (available for the low, low price of $32) I am holding a drawing to give away the one Barbara generously provided. To enter your name once, leave a comment. To enter again, link to my apron offer . As a bonus, I'll enter your name again if you participated in Barbara's contest. As easy as 1,2,3.

I will hold the drawing on Friday, January 26th. Be sure to get your entries in by Thursday at midnight and check back here for the winner.

  1. Yeah! I love the aprons and might have to save up for one made by you if I don’t win! :)

    Congratulations on winning the contest, and isn’t that fitting and funny you won that very apron you make?

    P.S. I saw your wormy post and must say I can hardly wait until my little men are storing such things in our fridge. It will be like back when my brothers did that…snakes come to mind.

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog and for entering me into your contest. I am linking to your apron offer right now. :)

  67. An Iowa Mom says:

    Thanks for holding this contest. Please enter me. I LOVE this apron! I think I would actually do more cooking/baking if I had one! LOL!

    I don’t know how you do it. Coming up with such cool stuff while homeschooling and raising 6 children. I only have 4 and 2 of them go to public school and I can’t seem to accomplish anything creatively. You have inspired me to do SOMETHING today! Maybe some notecards or a quilt top :) I better get to work! :)

    I will also be linking to your offer on my blog. Thanks a bunch!
