Mama Collaborative Giveaway

Happy spring, everyone!  

As I've mentioned a couple times over the past several weeks, I am so honored to be a part of a new etsy shop with 9 other crafting mamas.  It has been so inspiring to be able to work with these creative women...bouncing ideas off each other, offering and receiving suggestions and strengthening connections.  

I'm doing a giveaway this week.  I'll be giving away one of my linocut foxes and a patchwork potholder.  The potholder is what I'd call a second, I was still working on my bias-tape-making skills, but it is made with love and fully functional. ;)  

For an entry to the giveaway sign up for the Mama Collaborative newsletter, and leave a comment on this post that you did so.  We promise not to land in your inbox too often, just occasional newsletters with shop updates, a few photos and maybe a short essay or poem.
Giveaway closes Saturday, March 26.

Mama Collaborative


I am so excited, pleased, honored and proud to be announcing the grand opening of Mama Collaborative!
A couple of months ago I was invited to join a group of extremely talented and creative mother-artisans in a virtual community of support.  Together we’ve quietly been working behind the scenes in preparation for our shop to open in early March.
It has been so inspiring and exciting to watch what these women have been making!  For our first stocking we had kind of a loose spring theme.  Stop by our shop tomorrow!
Here are the wonderful women behind Mama Collaborative:

Melody: A yarn obsessed, homeschooling mother of five, aspiring designer and artisan of life. Her creativity and children run amuck in a messy house and untamed garden, in a wild wood, on a mountain in New England. Melody blogs at

Kim: I am a homeschooling mama to one, a writer, nature lover, dreamer, foodie, lover of all things handmade, and a creative doer. I am happy to be here with these other inspiring mamas.  Kim blogs at

Melanie: Home school mama to five in New England. We spend our days together creating all sorts of things, attempting to garden, reading good books, and observing the natural world, where we draw much inspiration.

Tonya: So happy to be working with these other women to share our creative pursuits. As a mom of seven children, I find joy and beauty in the daily ordinary of raising a family, keeping up with our homestead dreams, and helping to run a family business. Tonya blogs at

Jules: Hello, I'm Jules and I'm delighted to be with these inspiring women. I am a mama, a wife, and a shepherd who loves all things woolly. We are raising our three kids on a farm in BC, trying to make as much of our own food, clothing, and furniture.

Elizabeth: Mama to three unschooled boys :: Tiny house living :: Off grid homesteader :: Lover of wool :: Maker of natural goods :: blogs at
