Wednesday, May 29, 2013.  This giveaway is now over.  Thank you to all who entered!  The winner has been randomly chosen and notified by email.  Congratulations April A.!

Lisa Irvine writes at Lisa’s Blogety Blog. You can find her at @Lirvine98 on twitter. If you have an idea for a giveaway, please let her know!

Does your little one need a little coaxing to get into the bathtub?  Do they love LEGOS?   Carleigh Pearce, Owner of Ellison’s Organics has just the thing for you!

From Ellison’s Organics Etsy Site:

“Does your little Lego-lover despise getting washed up?  These unscented Lego soaps are sure to attract even the messiest engineer to the sink or tub.  Place some of these by the sink and just watch the suds start to roll off those sticky hands.

Great as gifts, birthday party favors, potty-training incentives, and equally fun for the little or big kid.”


Carleigh is a young mom and a small business owner of Ellison’s Organics (name after her two boys, Elliott and Harrison .  She started EO when Harrison was born and in the NICU.  He tried so hard to grow that just couldn’t put any chemicals onto his tiny body.  After researching organic soap and finding out how expensive it is, Carleigh wanted to make an affordable option for other parents that want to provide their children with the best, most natural ingredients, but without the cost! These little Lego Man soaps are not only super cute, they are made of all organic ingredients and are unscented.  They are perfect for little hands to grab onto!


About Ellison’s Organics Meltaway Lip Balm :

“Do you want smooth, soft lips but don’t care for the shine from standard chapstick and lip balm?  If so, then Ellison’s Organics Meltaway lip balm is for you!  This soothing, moisturizing lip balm is specially formulated to penetrate your skin quickly, leaving nothing behind but healing and moisture.  It’s a great option for kids, as it doesn’t contain any chemicals, additives or scents!

To create Ellison’s Organics handmade Meltaway balm, three powerhouse ingredients are combined:  Organic Unrefined Shea Butter, Natural Pure Beeswax and Organic Virgin Coconut Oil.  The end product of this process is an incredibly gentle, natural, moisturizing balm, that won’t leave your lips reflecting any passers-by.

This balm offers soothing, natural relief for dry lips, elbows and cracked heels.  It is a gentle formulation that is soothing and moisturizing to your thirsty skin.  This product has only a natural, clean scent, with no added chemicals or preservatives.”


I really like this lip balm!  It’s so smooth and doesn’t leave a waxy film on your lips.  The lip balm has a very mild coconut flavor, which made me like it even more.

You can purchase Ellison’s Organics Lego Man Soaps, Meltaway Lip Balm and many other wonderful Natural Home and Body Products on Carleigh’s Ellison’s Organics Etsy Shop.   Carleigh is so fabulous that she has offered to giveaway one set of Lego Man Soaps and one Meltaway Lip Balm to one of our very lucky readers!!!

Big Pink Farm Soap Giveaway!

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012 by Stephanie O'Dea


This giveaway is now CLOSED. Thank you to all who entered! The winner has been notified via email. have a great day! –steph


Hello! It’s Stephanie — Lisa is working on behind-the-scenes stuff today and I wanted to write this review myself. Thank you to all who keep checking in, it feels really good to be able to give back to those who are so supportive.

Thank you.

This is handmade goat soap, made with love, by my friend Alison and her children. I first met her a good 12 years ago, before I had children. I love Alison, yet I’ve never actually met her or had the opportunity to give her a great big hug.

but she’s wonderful.

and you’d love her, too.

She doesn’t know that I’m hosting this giveaway, but she said a few weeks ago that she is ready to make soap again and that she is “open for business” and taking orders.

I’d like you to order some soap, if you can. It’s $4 a bar, and it’s lovely. It’s been a very hard time for Alison and her family, and if we can help keep her mind busy by making soap, I think we should. Her blog has been updated, and you can read all about her family, by clicking here.

This is the order form for soap. Thank you.


But I still have a giveaway! I’ll randomly select a winner to receive 5 bars of The Big Pink Farm’s lovely goat soap. The winner will be notified by me, and we’ll square away the scent-details. :-) I’ll leave this up until Friday, Dec 7th at 5pm pacific.

have a very happy day! xoxo steph
