Bloggy Giveaways Carnival!

We interrupt this blog to bring you...


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.

This time I'm giving away a container of my special, homemade laundry detergent, a box of my beloved flax seed, and a box of quinoa. This should jump start your efforts at living a healthier, less toxic life.

This contest is open to anyone living 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. Last time, only one person didn't leave me a way to contact her. Of course, hers was the first name I drew. Don't let this tragedy happen to you! Be sure I can contact you.

Do hop over here to see all the other great blogs and great giveaways. It lasts all week long.

Good luck to everyone!

OK, that's all folks. I'll announce a winner in the morning! Stay safe tonight!

Flax seed is so good for you that it would be great to win some. :) I had to go look at Quinoa. That would be something new and different to learn how to use.

Yumm! I love quinoa! I'm a vegan, so we use flax seeds as an addition to pretty much everything to make sure we're getting the right fatty acids!
