and the winner is....

I know, I'm late about it.  Sorry!  I just got home.  You see, I start back to college tomorrow- I was going last year for photography and double pneumonia and pregnant with twins on bedrest forced my hand to put it off.  So, out shopping for essentials today, my husband bought me a kindle and a coffee pot!  How very supporting is he?  Lesson learned here:  with a good man by your side, it is NEVER too late to follow your dreams!

Anyhoo- I absolutely LOVED reading the comments.  I was bagging up at the worst Christmas gifts and smiling thinking about other memories that were brought up by your favorite Christmas memory and couldn't wait to read about your favorite Christmas breakfasts.  It really reiterated why I absolutely LOVE this time of year, and my eyes glaze over and I go all Norman Rockwell meets Clark Griswold with a little gremlins thrown in for good measure.  So, do you want to know what you'll be winning?

OH!  I'm so glad you asked!!!

I own a business called Homestead Soapery and Crafts.  Basically I get to make crafts and soap.  The winner has won 3 bars of soap!  1- Ocean Blue 1- Apple Orchard and 1- Homestead Clean.  They are 100% vegan and very good for your skin.  first two have coconut oil, olive oil and shea butter- all known for moisturizing, and the third is a 100% castile olive oil only bar.  all of which are amazing.  I use them all on my own skin (my personal bars- not the ones you'll be getting!) and my family, down to my 7 month old twins- that's how gentle it is!

Ocean Blue is a clean, water scent that reminds you of relaxing by your favorite watering hole!  (how's that for a southern term?!)

Apple Orchard is a faint scent reminiscent of biting into that first crisp fall apple.

Homestead Clean is a very clean scent that is like hanging your laundry in a breezy meadow.  (that sounds so frigging corny, but it's true!  it's really an awesome scent!)

I am so excited to announce that I drew it this way- I put all the names of everyone who commented on my blog in a baggie.  My 3 oldest each drew 1 name.  those 3 names were put back in an empty bag and the winner was drawn:


Email me at to give me your address (within 24 hours or I'll have the kids pick another winner) and I'll get them out by Saturday.  (a little crazy here this week.  Ok, a LOT crazy here this week, but it'll be out to you within a few days!)

Oh, and here's what the soaps look like:
