The Spring Fling Give Away is underway at Etsy's Mothering Street Team blog. We all decided that we would jump into spring feet first and bring some traffic to our blog and our shops. We all pitched in and bought a banner ad on the main forum page on 's natural parenting discussion forums. We are having a good old fashioned raffle and giving away a whole bunch of goodies for moms and kids from the talented moms from out street team. Of course there is no purchase necessary, but if you do buy from the shops that are participating you can earn 1 entry for every dollar you spend. Whoopie! More chances to win! To search for participating stores, visit Etsy and follow this link. For a complete list of rules and other good stuff visit our blog.

First we have a basket for the kiddos: A wooden helicopter from Imagination Kids, a silk ring twirl toy and a rainbow wood bead necklace from Sun Anthem, a set of six small cars from Small Town Toys, a felt Totoro applique from Spunky Gal, pirate sandwich wrappers from Creations by Hippie Fairy Lover, a child's healing necklace (picture pending) from Stones of Healing, and a set of play-dough from MayaMade.
Next we have a collection of items for all you hard working mom's out there: bath bombs from Circle Natural Goods, beautiful bead bracelet from Little Queen Sheba, a stack of breastfeeding awareness bumper-stickers (to share!) and additional natural decals from Elemental Handcrafts, a Little Ones Sweet Dreams aromatherapy set with Need to Sleep Mist and customizable bed-time poem, and an herbal cloth trivet, both from MayaMade.
