Bonus giveaway!!

And the winner is....Julia Blair!!! Chosen by!
This cool item was supposed to make it into the Grand Prize, and I spaced and forgot about it-so you get a bonus giveaway!
Claire over at Crunchy Momma Love has contributed an adorable pair of zebra teethers to attach to your soft structured carrier! These are a perfect accessory and can be used on an Ergo, Boba, etc. They have gorgeous zebra cotton outers and soft terry cloth inside to make for a great chewing experience for your little teether. We have some of these on our Ergo, and my baby LOVES them!!

The Grand Prize!!!

The winner was Anna Stallcup, with this image:

We were fortunate to have a lot of awesome mamas contribute to the Grand Prize! Please read this post in its entirety, as the rules to enter may be different from your typical giveaway. Trust me, though, the prizes are worth it!!
Don't forget to enter all of our highlight sponsor prizes as well! They are available here.
The Grand Prize giveaway is only available to US Mamas.
In order to QUALIFY to enter, you must do two things:
1. "Like" the Facebok pages of ALL of the sponsors using the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this page (if you do not like all of them, you will be disqualified).
2. Answer a trivia question (also in the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this page) about each page CORRECTLY. If you can't find the information, you are allowed to message the WAHM to ask her for help.
Any person who does not complete both of the above will be disqualified from participation in the Grand Prize drawing.
In order to WIN, you must take a photo (graphic design images are fine as well) that somehow relates to the theme "Celebrate WAHMs." It can be funny, serious, staged, casual-be creative! This photo must then be posted to the Celebrate WAHMs event page: Ideally they would be posted during the party so we can all enjoy them, but if you are unable to do that, you can post them prior to the party, and I will bump them during the party. I will choose my favorite photograph to win.
The winner will receive ALL of the prizes listed below. They are all being sent from various WAHMs, so please allow for mailing time!
Okay, now on to the awesome prizes!
1. Soy Wax Melt sprinkles from Jen at Pink Zebra, which is a soy-based wax melt company whose products are made from 100% renewable US-grown soybeans.

I Watermelon
Totes Cherry
Cake Batter
Light My Fire
Coffee Buzz
Crazy Banana
Grape Popsicle
Powder Puff
Strawberry Sass
Honeysuckle Hugs
Tahitian Lime

Each Tester holds approximately 1 tablespoon of Sprinkles. Use as much or as little as you want! Each use lasts approx 36-48 hours, and if the smell starts to go away, simply toss in a few more sprinkles and the smell comes back.
2. A set of adorable apple hair barrettes from Deb at The B Family Boutique
The B Family Boutique has some seriously adorable stuff! Hair clippies like these, wipe cases, adorable clothing and shoes, and more! She has ready-to-ship stuff and some that is made to order! Check her out!
3. In honor of A Lamb's Tail, Lilly from Life Through Your Body is offering up this to-die-for hat and wool soaker set!

 Lilly offers custom and ready-to-ship outfits-she has some seriously cute stuff! Check her out!! She is very talented and can design things if she sees them, too!
4. Jennifer at Dapper Derrieres is offering a contoured bib burp cloth in an adorable owl print! Made with waterproof PUL on one side and absorbent minky on the reverse, this burp cloth prevents wetness from seaping through onto your clothes. This baby essential is perfect for on the go parents because it will double as a bib! Why carry more in that packed diaper bag if you don't have to? This burp cloth has snaps strategically placed on both contoured "wings" so that you can snap the bib in place around baby's neck to prevent messes on your little one's clothes.

5. $20 gift certificate to A Lamb's Tail which can be used toward anything in the store, including custom spots and shipping. Wool is wonderful for cloth diapered babies and can be a great way to leak proof your little ones at night-or just as a natural, breathable fiber for any time! Even if you don't cloth diaper, woolies can be used as adorable clothing or photo props!

6. Samantha at Buzzing Bottoms is offering a set of double sided flannel cloth wipes! Even if you don't cloth diaper, these are great for wiping little noses, or even cleaning up spills!

Enter via the Rafflecopter form below! Again, this is open to US mamas only-the sponsors will incur all shipping costs. Questions? Feel free to message me on facebook: A Lamb's Tail

What is your favorite thing about being a WAHM?
I am thankful for a (semi) flexible work schedule, as well as the fact that working from our home enables me to spend time with my own little cutieus!   
What is the inspiration behind your business?
Cutieus Maximus is the brain-child of Anna Stallcup, with the help, love and encouragement of her husband, Bubba.  We started cloth diapering right out of the gate with our son, and have loved it for many reasons, but especially the savings!  Working in the cloth diapering industry is a perfect fit for Anna, seeing as it is a subject that is difficult for her to STOP talking about. Our baby gladiator theme aims to capture the simultaneous cuteness and toughness of the human child, and of the entire parenting adventure.  Also, there is something hilarious about a baby in a gladiator costume.
What is one thing you would like people to know about your business?
We want to provide cool, fun diapers that mommies and daddies alike can't wait to put on their babies.
Tell me more about the prize you are offering for our party!
These double layered wipes are so luxurious that you will have a hard time limiting their use to just wiping tiny heinies.  Flannel on one side for the delicates, and creamy, dreamy sherpa on the other for everything left behind, these 8"x8" wipes will be able handle even the toughest of messes.  And who doesn't love Pooh Bear?  (We wanted to keep these for ourselves, but are also delighted to share them with you!)

What is your favorite thing about being a WAHM?
Being able to stay home with my babes and still make a little extra money to keep us comfy.
What is the inspiration behind your business?
When I was expecting our daughter, I became obsessed with hair accessories. At the rate that I was spending money on bows, I was BROKE. So, I learned how to make my own and have been for the past 3 years. It just branched out to the wipe cases shortly after.
What is one thing you would like people to know about your business?
Everything I do is done with love. I don't do it for the money, really. I do it because I like happy babies.
Tell me more about the prize you are offering for our party!
The wipe cases that I make are an awesome baby shower gift. It's a cute way to say that you care enough to get something custom made for that special baby in your life!
My favorite thing to get at my baby showers were always the custom made gifts. Just because it speaks to me more than the pack of wash cloths did.
