WoolyMossRoots {giveaway}

This weekend I am happy to share a giveaway from WoolyMossRoots with you! They are my go-to handmade shop for beautiful wooden buttons for my finished knitting projects!


Hello! We’re the Wilsons and WoolyMossRoots is our family business. We’re based in Oregon and are so grateful to be able to work from home and make things for a living. We love making things! Jeff is the woodworker and I (Taryn) run our online shop, taking pictures of all the beautiful things he creates, and helping with various parts of the process. We sell at a local market, at fiber festivals as well as other festivals, and online. In our online shop you can find artisan buttons, shawl pins, wooden jewelry, and cedar garden and homestead signs. We’ve been busy getting ready for our next fiber festival and I just added a bunch of new buttons and shawl pins to the shop. You can stay up to date with shop updates, and enjoy other bits of seasonal inspiration, when you join us on the blog.

Nova Natural {Easter giveaway!}


Nova Natural is a small, family-run business based in the beautiful state of Vermont. Our goal is to be your trusted source for children’s toys and crafts that allow imaginations to run wild, engage curious minds, and foster appreciation for nature. We carefully handpick every item that goes into our catalog, and it’s important to us that we try our very best to offer you fair trade products made with renewable resources. We hope you find beauty and wonder in our toys!


What is better than watching young, creative minds craft something beautiful? At Nova, we’re all about creativity, and for this year’s Easter festivities we have plenty of craft kits and toys that will allow your children to be artistic and imaginative. Check out our online catalog featuring the best of the best for Spring. Whether they’re coming up with a new way to decorate an Easter egg or inventing a story about the creatures in your backyard, children can make these spring time activities entirely their own.



With the Felted Spring Egg Kit, you and your children can use wool batting and colored yarn to create vibrant eggs for your Easter decor. You can also experiment with an ancient art form with our Ukrainian Egg Decorating Kit, which includes everything you need to make your own beautiful pysanky eggs using beeswax and dye.



As our Easter gift to you, we’re offering a free set of our Natural Easter Egg Dyes with any purchase of $75 or more (while supplies last)!



One of our favorites this spring is Simon’s Stable.  Made in Poland, this charming wooden stable will inspire hours of outdoor play. With a loft, a manger and two stalls, it will keep cattle warm on chilly spring nights. For those with fairy friends, the German-made Forest Tree House is the perfect Easter gift. This whimsical structure will be home to all the gnomes and fairy folk your children can imagine. They can even adjust the tree house to the liking of its guests.    

Nova Natural would like to give one lucky winner a $50 eGift Card! For your chance to win, leave a comment on this post. Comments are closed and the winner is Paige, who commented, “Oh wow my girls would love that stable and the egg dyes look great too. Definitely going to have to check out their catalog.”
