Moon Dog Farm Giveaway

~This giveaway is now closed~

Allow me to introduce Moon Dog Farms, a fantastic shop on Etsy owned by the lovely Nikki Fox.
Nikki is a knitting, needle felting and jewelry making diva! All of her creations are handmade with care. See just a sample of her crafty wares below...

This hand knitted adorable Wee Bag is perfect for those little things that get lost easily.
These needle felted Easter eggs are just the perfect thing to fill those Easter baskets next month! Nikki also sells needle felting kits and supplies. Talk about a one stop shop!
My favorite thing in her store are these lovely mama necklaces, which two of my lucky readers will win!!
I took one look at these mama necklaces and absolutely fell in love with them - the simplicity, the natural beauty and the purpose behind them.

Nikki describes them best:
"There is something so simply beautiful about a single stone. Designed with mamas in mind, my necklaces are great for anyone who loves a tough necklace that won't break! Simple & all natural, they are perfect for nursing, entertaining, or distracting the tiniest of hands. They're also great for dads, grandmas, & babysitters!"
I'd like to add they are such a joy for mamas to wear, too! There's something warmly gratifying about wearing a little piece of earth around your neck. I just LOVE mine (see pic to left) and I've been wearing it ever since it arrived in the mail. James loves it, too - during our cuddle or storytimes he'll hold it in his little hands, turning it over and over while examining the little bird and the delicate carvings. It is such a treasure.

As I mentioned, you all are in for a real treat because Nikki has generously offered to giveaway not one, but two of her beautiful mama necklaces!! The lucky winners will receive one of the two necklaces shown here:
Click on the photos and take a closer look at the beautiful markings inside the stones. I must say I had a hard time deciding which necklaces to giveaway as the prizes because there are so many lovelies to choose from! I plan to add a few more to my personal collection, but it occurred to me that these would make such a lovely gift for a new mama or mama to be, too!

Now here's what you need to do to win...

Wow, that shop is surprisingly affordable, and she has so many cute things. I will definitely have to go back and buy some of her kits. I've been thinking of learning how to felt, and those kit look like a good deal.

Mar, what a great web site! I had a hard time choosing a favorite! I really love the necklaces especially. If I had to pick a favorite it would be the carved serpentine necklace.

I am a huge fan of Niki's work - my absolute favorite (other than all of her beautiful Mama necklaces, which I am such a sucker for) has to be the Inspire Imagination Wool Felted Crown. We got one for our daughter for her 2nd birthday and it made her feel so special. Niki is such a treasure - the amazing love she puts into her beautiful family, community and sustainable agriculture is quite obviously also put into her shop at Moon Dog Farm!
