My Product Review Contest
I would like to write a product review. What product shall I review? 

I have decided to purchase an item from an Etsy shop. Which Etsy shop?

If you own an Etsy shop and would like to participate, please leave a link to your shop here in the comments section. I will choose a winning shop on Saturday June 30th using

The winner will be posted here along with a picture and a link to the purchased item.

More Details
I am a stay-at-home wife, and mother of 3 daughters, ages 4, 8, and 12. We have a small dog and one cat. I enjoy crafts as do my children. I am a candle maker. I also enjoy crocheting, cooking, baking, and experimenting with making my own cleaning and bath products. There is something special about handmade items.

I am open to reviewing just about anything that is family friendly. And since I will be purchasing the product and am on a budget, the product should be around $15 or less (It is up to you if you'd like to offer a discount). Please offer a suggestion of which products you think would be a good fit along with the link to your shop in your comment.

The item will be purchased by me during either the first or second week of July. I will conduct the review and post the results here within two weeks of receiving the item.

The Review
The item MUST be handmade. I will conduct a thorough review/critique and offer my honest opinion based on mine or my family's opinions. 
The winning shop will be featured and promoted here on my blog. I will tweet and post the review on facebook.

I can also promote the winning shop's blog, facebook, and twitter links, and a link to their Etsy shop as well. 

I am offering this review as a free service and am not asking for anything in return. I think this will be a fun and efficient way of helping to promote other Etsy shops. If it goes well, I may consider doing more reviews in the future :)

Any questions??
