Xagave By Better Body Foods Review and Cookbook Giveaway (CLOSED)

Chances are, if you have tried to cut down on sugar, you have heard of agave. There is quite a bit of negative information about agave on the internet. You may be wondering if it is healthy. I have learned that not all agave is created equally.

Grovia All-In-One Review and Giveaway- Courtesy of The Cloth Nook {Sponsor Spotlight} Fluffy Butts Giveaway Hop

About The Cloth Nook: 
What is your name and anyone else part of the business? 
Hannah & Gabriel Neas, Owners
How did you get started with your business?
I was late coming to cloth diapering. When my son was born, 4 and a half years ago, we tried cloth diapers, but were operating on very little information. We just bought prefolds, pins and plastic pants. Our son was a preemie, but had grown to 28 pounds by 9 months! His thighs and plastic pants did not do well together. We gave up until I got a great tutorial when my daughter was over a year old and jumped right in. When we found out our favorite local shop, The Cloth Nook, was closing my husband and I decided to take over.

Who or what was your inspiration?
I have been teaching childbirth classes for a couple of years and love to learn and teach about all things natural. Cloth diapers fit right in! My husband was really excited about the business and we decided that having a family business was an idea worth working for. We wouldn't be here today if he hadn't pushed me to take the leap.

ZooKiescrafts Diaper Cover Review and Giveaway {Sponsor Spotlight} Fluffy Butts Giveaway Hop

About ZooKiescrafts:
What is your name and anyone else part of the business?
My name is Michele Zook. I do the sewing and my husband, Jon, is developing our website. 
How did you get started with your business?
I stayed home with our children for many reasons. One being my husband's long commute to work and his erratic work schedule. I enjoy being at home, but it is not easy making ends meet with one income. I used cloth diapers, so the idea started from there. So, I can be at home with our small children while helping to contribute a bit to the finances.
Who or what was your inspiration?
Package it came in. LOVE IT! :)
Being able to stay home with our children is my inspiration. My mom used to be a seamstress by trade, so I guess it might be in the genes.
How long have you been doing what you do?
I have been sewing for about 2 - 2 1/2 years. I have always enjoyed crafting. 
What is your motivation? What are you passionate about?
Once my children are in school full time, I want to be able to still be doing what I am doing. I love the freedom that being my own boss gives.

Headline Shirts Kids Tee Review and Giveaway {Spotlight Sponsor} Shake, Rattle and Roll #ShakeRattleWin

About Headline Shirts:
Headline Shirts was founded on San Jose Ave. in San Francisco in 2005. The company grew tremendously and after three years, in 2008, they moved to a busy new headquarters, still in San Francisco. The shirts have remained consistently awesome, made with eco-friendly ink and hand sewn in San Francisco. Not to mention they are very funny!

Headline shirts was kind enough to let me pick out a tee for my 3 year old, Chase. We were given a code and I ordered it online, just like a customer would. The website layout was easy to order from. Chase chose the yellow tee with the flying squirrel. We ordered a 4T. The shipping was amazingly fast! They ship within 24 hours after you place the order!
When we received the shirt Chase was very eager to put it on but we had to get some good shots of it first.

Rainbow Blocks and Play Silk from Happy Yiayia Review and Giveaway {Sponsor Spotlight} Shake, Rattle and Roll #ShakeRattleWin

About Happy Yiayia:
Kimberly, a homeschooling mother to five kids, has enjoyed tie dying for herself and her family for quite some time. Just recently, she and her mother Becky (who does the sewing) joined forces to bring you Happy Yiayia. Kimberly has done what most of us can only dream about, create a business out of a hobby. She enjoys the anticipation and excitement from hand dying each piece and waiting to see how it turns out. Then she is able to share it with the world. She feels it is important that her children see her take time for herself and do something she enjoys and I couldn't agree more! When Kimberly isn't working or teaching her children she is spending time outside hiking, swimming, camping or just hanging out with friends and family.

Teething Lovie by Drool Monkey Organics Review and Giveaway {Sponsor Spotlight} Shake, Rattle and Roll #ShakeRattleWin

How it all began:
Kamala Corkin desperately searched for something safe and clean for her teething baby to chew on. Being a new parent and learning about the importance of using organic she took an organic cloth and made her daughter her first lovie. Soon she realized it was something they would not be able to do without. She even hand embroidered a little monkey on it in honor of her daughters nickname, Drool Monkey. After her second child, Kamala finally released the Drool Monkey we know and love today. She had worked two and a half years on perfecting it and it shows! The design is flawless.
Someday Kamala hopes to pass the business on to her children who have been her motivation. Her daughter already asks where each monkey will be making its new home. When Kamala has time to spare she spends it with her family at the beach, her daughters favorite place.
