Bloggy Carnival

Hi! Welcome to Elisharose News. I'm glad you stopped by. This blog was started as a way to chronicle my family's lives as we made the transition from big city family to country bumpkins. Unfortunately, God switched our gears and we are still here in the city. We still hope to make it to the country life soon, but until then we are trying to live simpler and less toxic lives.

To share what I have learned along the way I have what I call Tuesday's Tip. I share a little something that I have learned to live cleaner and better and healthier. For our giveaway today, I'm offering a starter kit with some of the items I have mentioned here to get you started on a healthier and less toxic life: milled flax seed, aluminum-free baking powder, and deodorant (with no parabens). I have even tossed in a couple of tasty bits of organic chocolate.

This contest is open to anyone in the U.S. Please leave me a comment to enter. If you don't have a blog, please leave an e-mail address where I can reach you.

Good luck and Live Healthy.

If you just happened by and don't know anything about the Bloggy Carnival Giveaway, you should go visit here and see what other things are being offered.


Time's up! Let's close this puppy down. I'll announce a winner tomorrow. Good luck everyone!

We, too, are trying bit by bit to switch over to a healtier lifestyle. I try to make most of our foods from scratch and have slowly been replacing our cleaning products with healtier alternatives as they run out. I would love to be entered in your giveaway.

This is a fabulous giveaway! We are trying out different aluminum-free deodorants (no great success yet) and I have been meaning to buy some aluminum-free baking powder. We already have a huge jar of ground flax so maybe I'll share that with someone else and encourage them in healthier living.
