Birchleaf Designs-Small Bug Box, pine, Cedar, birch bark, & leather

I really like this bug box. I had one like it when I was young. It was actually my grandma's. I hope to catch lightning bugs someday with my son. When I was little, I couldn't wait until they came out.

LittleElfsToyshop-Squirrel Nutkin (Needle Felted Wool)

I really like most of the items at this store. I especially liked Nutkin because of an experience that I had with my son about a week ago. A little squirrel came so close to him in his stroller that he could see and interact with it. I was a little nervous, but I just thought that the squirrel thought that he was a nice baby. He's a wonderful baby.

MamaRoots-Naming Renick book

We have a wooden sprite made by MamaRoots named Hans. We just need the book about his friend, Renick. :)

We really hope that we win, but if not, it was really a great experience looking at all the work of these fine artists.

Birchleaf - Oh, I LOVE the bug box!! I am making a "field kit" for DS and this would be perfect for it :-)

Little Elf - I can hardly choose one thing! I love the little gnome felt picture, the mushroom house, the house playscape and the robin in its nest!

Mamaroots - The give, spend, save monster tags are brilliant (I need them for myself ;-). And I love the wooden mushrooms.

So - Birchleaf - I loved the watercolour paint pots!!!! We've been using muffin tins to mix the paints but keeping the mixed paint without rusting the tin has been hard!

- Mamaroots - Loved the story telling dice! I've bought math dice from her store before and we love to play math games with them. Fabulous shop!

Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity. If I had to choose just 1 item from each store I would choose LittleElfsToyshop - gnome girl. Every child should have a doll made with natural materials. MamaRoots - the storytelling dice seem like so much fun. Birchleaf Designs - playsilks are the most versatile toy.

We are moving to Kenya in 4 weeks and these seem like the perfect light, packable, open ended item to pack for our four children! The colors are beautiful!

Simple item, small enough to pack in our luggage for the transcontinental move and endless open ended fun for the kiddos

Mama roots:
Hojo the Birthday Dragon- Made to Order

so many great items but I am a one track mind with travel plans and this would be a small packable item that my 4 year old son would be delighted to see when he wakes up five in Kenya.

thanks for the introduction to these great sellers!
