I Can't Find My Umbrella - Giveaway

I stumbled across a GIVEAWAY today for an umbrella. I had an umbrella - a very cute umbrella with a duck-head handle, but sadly, it's missing! It would have been nice to have an umbrella handy when travelling from the car to a store or restaurant in the rain with the baby! He doesn't really mind the rain, but wet clothes are not the most comfortable and it's nice to keep the baby dry! With a growing family I think it would be nice to have a good quality, large umbrella to share with my favourite guys. I like this freeflex umbrella. It's large size is perfect for sharing!

(photos used in this posting were taken from http://www.umbrellasinvancouver.com/2009/12/your-favourite-umbrella-giveaway.html)

I never think to buy an umbrella for some reason. Thinking about it now, even the cute duck umbrella was a Christmas gift from years and years ago. Winning an umbrella would be fantastic (and would make a nice gift to myself this Holiday Season). Head over to Umbrellas in Vancouver for your chance to win an umbrella from The Umbrella Shop in Vancouver. BE sure to check out the variety of umbrellas too!.

This contest is open to residents of Canada and the US and ends at 6:00pm PST December 31st, 2009. Enter HERE

Will Stroet CD Giveaway

My son absolutely loves music. In the middle of a serious breakdown (he must have wanted a bottle or something important like that) I have seen him go from full-out screaming cries to 100% quiet when he hears music playing. He will just stare at the TV if a commercial comes on playing a song. He's too young to have a favourite right now but I'm sure he will enjoy this CD as he gets older.

Three readers of My Organized Chaos are each going to get one Will Stroet CD. It's full of fun songs that your child will enjoy. Enter the giveaway HERE. This giveaway is open to Canadian and US residents and will ends Dec 27th at 9:00pm MST. CLOSED

Who doesn't LOVE Robeez? (3 Giveaways)

Even Robeez will admit that barefoot is best, but I couldn't agree with them more that Robeez is second to bare feet. My son has been standing for a while now but he is only beginning to take small, assisted steps now. He will do this if wearing nothing on his feet or his Robeez - that's it! I have tried to put shoes from other companies on his feet but most are so rigid that he finds them uncomfortable to wear. Has he told me this - no, but when he kicks his feet until they come off I understand what he is 'saying'. Even the pair he will keep on are not conducive to him learning to walk - they are just too stiff. Kids need shoes that will flex as they walk.

Robeez has a beautiful Holiday line out now as well as great-looking boots. I have been waiting a long time to come across a Robeez Giveaway and I am happy to say that I found two!

Organic Girl has a giveaway ending December 17, 2009 and is open to residents of Canada and the US. Go HERE to enter this fabulous giveaway. CLOSED

A second giveaway can be found at
Glimpse. Robeez is offering one pair of shoes or booties from their new Holiday Gift Guide '09. Visit HERE to enter another great Glimpse Giveaway. Giveaway is open to residents of Canada and the US and will close on December 19, 2009. Good luck! CLOSED

A third giveaway can be found at My Organized Chaos. Thanks to Robeez, one lucky reader is going to get a pair of shoes from the Holiday Gift Guide. This giveaway closes December 27, 2009 at 9pm MST and is open to residents of Canada and the US. Enter HERE CLOSED

*BONUS - In the spirit of giving, purchase any pair of Soft Soled Robeez until 12/23 and another pair will be donated to K.I.D.S(see the website for more information).

A Giveaway with a CHOICE

Visit here to enter to win your choice of CSI DVD as well as a DVD for the kiddies. The choice for me is easy, but you may have a more difficult time choosing between CSI Miami (Season 7) or CSI New York (Season 5). But wait...you also get to choose a DVD for your kids - either Elmo Loves You or Pinky Dinky Doo: Polka Dot Pox. With a little boy at home who loves his talking Elmo chair, the choice for this DVD is also a no-brainer for me.

Head over to MOM OF BOYS WITH TOYS to enter this Giveaway!

Are You Crafty?

I used to do some basic knitting - anything square or rectangular because I'm not overly talented in the knitting department. I used to paint....and do beadwork....and create my own greeting cards using stamps and cool cutting tools. One reason I stopped was because when we left the North everything went into boxes to be shipped more than 7000km away. We bought a house and moved in and soon had water troubles...needless to say, after a couple of years, my crafting supplies remain in boxes. Reason number two is actually a very good reason - the birth of our baby boy. He has taken up a lot of my time over the last 11 months, but worth every minute of it! But it's time! It's time to take some time to myself and to unpack those boxes so I can find my creative side once again. In the mean time I'm going to visit Create Release Smile and enter her Giveaway for a box full of Stamping Goodies! I could use the inspiration!

A Gift in the Mail

Today I received MOVIE CASH in the mail! I rarely get out of the house these days because of the little one, but I have managed to get to the movies twice in the last 7 months. Since we live an hour and a half away from the nearest theatre we have to pay big bucks for gas to drive to the big city. Since it's a 3 hour round-trip, it's only worth while heading there if we do some shopping and stick around for a meal or two - this all adds up! We still haven't left the little one with a babysitter and gone on a date alone together...add in the cost of a baby sitter in addition to the movie and a meal (plus gas costs) and we are looking at spending at least $140 for a night out. Since any little bit helps I was very glad to come across a Blogger giving away MOVIE CASH and I was the proud winner.

She posts about things that Mommies would find interesting. She just posted about a nice Freebie as well as a new Febreeze scent she discovered. She is just starting out with Giveaways so I thought it would be nice to mention it here. Her next Giveaway is for 3 DVDs. Please visit MOM OF BOYS WITH TOYS and enter her new Giveaway for the following movies: Katakune, The Silence, and Away We Go.

Make-Up for Moms

I rarely wear make-up, but as I get older I am realizing that I really need to take better care of my skin and that I can use a little bit of help.

This make-up is supposed to be quick and easy to use - and what new mom wouldn't appreciate that?!?!

Christmas is Quickly Approaching

I know I haven't been very good at keeping this site updated - I guess I have been more excited about entering contests and giveaways than writing about them.

Well, that has to change and I'm starting now. I came across this exciting GIVEAWAY FESTIVAL today and I wanted to share it with you. The Festival runs from November 1st - 12th. There are many great sponsors which means I will definitely be checking in each day.

Check it out by clicking on the buttons above.

Now here is a GIVEAWAY everyone should enter! My son absolutely loves this toy. This was the first toy he ever really reached for and we don't go anywhere without her. I think "Sophie" may be his first word when the time comes!

This little lady is very cute, easy to hold, and soothes sore little gums. I already have one but would love a spare in case she goes missing. I also have a few baby gifts to buy so this would make a nice gift ;)
