Mama's Mission is proud to bring you this wonderful giveaway!!

Whipped Shea Butter

I am going to sound like a typical Italian cook. I didn't measure. Yep you read that right. . The ratio of butter to oil depends on taste and weather. During warmer months the shea will melt faster. It will be harder during the winter which would require more liquid oil. Some don't mind the greasy feeling, which does sink into your skin. You can add dry flo or cornstarch. Just a little, not too much. I used my whisk attachment for my hand blender used only for my lotions.

Soy Candles-CT River Candles

I have a wonderful opportunity to review and giveaway a Soy candle from CT River Candles. They are hand poured using 100% natural soy wax-Made in the USA. Soy is a renewable resource and burns much cleaner. The wax has a lower melting point therefore it's burns longer & cooler with less soot. Check out their available scents here. What would you choose?

Thyme tea & Herb grinder

Do you grow you own herbs? Here is a great deal on a Herb grinder on Amazon.  Did you know Thyme contains thymol, a powerful antioxidant? I have no medical background. I have researched online about essential oils and herbs. I have found drinking a tea of thyme, rosemary and lemon soothes my sore throat, opens my mucus membranes and eases my chest congestion & cough. The flavor of thyme is unique. Lemon is a great addition to the flavor. This is only my personal experience, not a medical fact.

What is your favorite herb?

Lazoo clothing Giveaway

Lazoo is a quality-conscious lifestyle children’s brand and media property emphasizing award-winning design, creativity, and play. Inspired by an internationally best-selling series of Japanese children’s books, Lazoo products all embody the same core mission: to foster a child’s creative process, encourage self-expression and empower the imagination.

When we enter the world of Lazoo, we enter the realm of a child's imagination, a place of endless possibility where cars race across tree branches, mermaids teach dinosaurs to sing, and ghosts host fashion shows. In this world, kids are encouraged to think independently; "coloring outside the lines" is celebrated and all types of creative self–expression are honoured.

Christmas Storage

Every year we dread going into our designated closet for the Christmas Decorations. Mom kept many of her Mother's stuff. She has her own style and then My husband and I moved in with our style.

It starts out organized. Then day after day we find another thing we missed. It gets to the point you can't open the door without stuff falling.

We have so much stuff it would take a week to complete. This year I put 1/3 of the items out because I didn't want to go through the mess.

  1. Outside decorations
  2. Mom's (will need 1-2 more)
  3. Our decorations
  4. Christmas tree decorations

The best time to get organized is now. Since the room was half empty I was able to move things around and see everything. I made sure to pick out clear bins. $5.98 at HomeDepot.

2013 Update

Keeping things organized is always an ongoing project! We successfully kept it organized but we still have a lot of dejunking to do. Before storing the decorations I am sorting each bin and removing what we haven't used.
