Teeny, Tiny, and Oh-So-Cute {Pink Mouse Boutique Feature & GIVEAWAY}

Tiny crochet creations absolutely amaze me. I don't know how to crochet, so even regular-sized crochet is awesome. Add the fact that it's a miniature version, and I'm hooked! When Pink Mouse Boutique contacted me interested in sponsoring here on the blog, I couldn't resist.

Diana creates tiny crochet gifts: Baskets, Dolls, Headbands & More.
While browsing her shop back in December, I fell in love with the cute mini elf dolls! You'll see that her items are made with a touch of whimsy and a whole lot of love.

I'm going to get straight to the point and share our quick interview Q & A session with you all.

How did you choose your shop name?

The name Pink Mouse Boutique came from my daughter's pink mouse shoes. Her grandmother gave them to her and even though they are too big, ever since she got them, she's been wearing them everywhere. If I try to hide them, she always finds them and wants to put them on. They are her favorite gift. So, I picked the name Pink Mouse Boutique because I wanted the things you buy from my shop to be your favorite purchase.

Learn more about her shop HERE.

What has been your favorite item to make so far? 

My hot air balloon. It's really fun to make it and I love that the basket is an actual acorn top.

What inspires you?

Anything really. And whenever I thin of a good idea I write it down. I used to not do that and a lot of good ideas got forgotten. Lesson learned!

What is your idea of the perfect Valentine's Day gift?

I am very easy to please. I just love being surprised so whatever the gift is, I want to not know about it until my husband gives it to me on Valentine's Day.

Make it Green 2015: Rockin' Green Laundry Detergent Giveaway

It's time for the next installment of Make it Green in 2015. And this time we're talking dirty laundry! You can clean that dirty laundry with something green - Rockin' Green, a green laundry detergent that you're sure to love. Keep reading for more info from Latched on Mom.

Figuring out the best way to get your cloth diapers clean can be a daunting task.  I follow conversations online about the many different ways to wash cloth diapers and have found opinions differ.  It can be quite discouraging if you can't find the right washing routine.  There's many types of detergents available out there, and variants of washing machines, (e.g top-loading, front-loading) so how do you know what is the better choice for you and for the environment?
Visit the Environmental Working group to search your current laundry detergent's ingredients.   How many toxic chemicals are in your detergent?  During the Make it Green in 2015 series, we've discussed simple ways to make changes this year to make healthier, ecologically friendly choices.  A mother only wants the best for her baby, and choosing cloth diapers is a fantastic way to provide your child with a healthier alternative.  Being attentive of environmentally safe laundry detergents and using them is an impressive way to perpetuate your cloth diaper craze and eco-consciousness! Taking care of your family and taking care of Earth is an easy thing to do with Rockin' Green.  The ingredients in all of the Rockin' Green products are made with a biodegradable plant-based and petroleum-free surfactant.  Rockin' Green is committed to giving families a non-toxic, gentle formula with substantial cleaning power!
Click here to read the full review of Rockin' Green by Latched On Mom.
Here's a chance to win a 3.2 lb bag of Classic Concentrate Laundry Detergent!

Just fill out the competition form below to enter the giveaway!  The giveaway will run from 1/27/15-2/9/15.  Open to US only.  Void where prohibited.  Must be 18 years of age or older to enter.  Winner will be announced on this post, as well as emailed (so make sure to log into the competition form using the email address you use).  You will have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be drawn.   Rockin' Green Classic Rock
