CLOSED: First GIVEAWAY of the New Year: Six Little Hands

We're excited to be back with some amazing handmade giveaways for our readers in 2011.  We're even more excited that our first giveaway is from Six Little Hands, an all natural body products shop.


Meet Melanie of Six Little Hands

--What does your life outside of Etsy/blogging look like?
I am a wife to an amazing husband and mommy to three beautiful girls.  My husband and I have been married for 13 years, and our girls are 7 years, 5 years, & 9 months old.  I had a life in molecular biology research for years before having children, but I enjoy being with them so much that I no longer work outside of the home.  I stay home with the girls and home school our two older girls.  We have so much fun getting to travel around and play in Southern California!

--Describe yourself (or ask someone else to do it!) in three words.
Intuitive, introverted, compassionate (my husband’s words)

--Winter piece you can’t live without:
My jeans (any of them)

--Most recent fashion-related purchase:
This cute, lace dress that I love to wear over my jeans

 --Do you craft/make anything else outside of what’s in your shop?
I love to bake.  Cookies are my favorite.
--Any pet peeves?
Mean people (it’s the first thing that comes to mind)

--Bad habits?
Staying up way too late and over-extending myself

--Desert-island food?
Any and all sweets, no question about it!


--Three bands/singers you can’t get enough of:
Ooooh, I love all kinds of music.  To narrow it down, I’ll go with Gatlin Elms, Sarah McLachlan, & Kenny Chesney (random, I know)

--Another blog you follow regularly (link us!):


(and my own blog which I’ve slacked on since trying to get the Etsy shop up and running: http://naturallivingsimplelife.blogspot.com/) 

--What made you decide to start a shop?
I wanted to make all natural soap for our family, and at first, I thought I could just gift and sell the rest.  Then it turned into much more than soaps!

--Significance of your shop name?
I named the shop for my three little girls.  The two older ones love to help me bake, so I knew that they would love creating bath and body items (they love using them, too)!

--Favorite item in your shop right now:


That’s hard, but I’ll go with the Pure Luxury Milk Bath Salts.










Melanie is giving away a generous prize pack 
to one lucky reader!


 The Six Little Hands Giveaway Pack includes:
-Jenny's Organic Lavender sugar scrub
-Hana's Lavender Natural Castile Soap Bubble Bath
