We’d like to take a moment to recognize a site and blogger friend, Joan Hayes, whom we lost unexpectedly over a week ago. She was supposed to be a part of this Favorite Things event, and suddenly passed away from a heart attack just before this went live. She was a single mom with 3 children, and the website she ran, Chocolate, Chocolate, and More, was her main source of income for her family. Please take a moment to visit her site, follow along on your favorite social media, and SHARE her recipes with others so it can continue to be a blessing to her family.

I REALLY want to take this time to say thank you for visiting TidyMom, for checking out my recipes, tips and crafts, you all are why I do this blogging thing!

One lucky TidyMom reader will win:

  1. Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker – because I love to listen to Pandora or my playlist in the shower!

  3. Soap And Glory Smoothie Star Body Buttercream – smells amazing!
  4. Epson LabelWorks LW-400 Label Maker – getting organized with a label maker!

  1. What useful items. Most I’ve never heard of. The ice cream tub would be fantastic for all of the homemade ice cream we make in the summer months. And, I have a daughter with hr almost to her knees. I’ve been eyeing the wet brush for her.

  2. Everything you are giving away is so wonderful but I absolutely love the label maker. I’ve had my eye on one for such a long time now. I would love to try the vanilla bean paste too. I always use real vanilla when cooking and you make it sound delicious.

  3. I would love to win this giveaway because I would LOVE a label maker. And snag less hair ties. And a water proof speaker??? (My kids would never get me out of the bathroom!)

  4. I’ve always wanted a label maker!  Ans do you even know how many strands of hair I lose a day?!  Hello WetBrush!!

  5. You have such useful things in your basket, I would love to be able to listen to music while in the shower, and as a preschool teacher I am always labeling things, so I can really use a label maker as well and the wet brush as I have some really hard to manage hair. Vanilla bean paste-just yum! That also looks like some great bodycream.

  6. We seem to have very similar tastes and your items would be VERY welcomed in our home- especially the ice cream saver and scoop since we are on a kick of making different flavors!

  7. Would love that speaker so I could also listen to music in shower!

  8. All these things look great – I would love to try them!

  9. I love getting happy mail! 🙂 

  10. Because I would love the speaker and other family members could use the other product.

  11. What a fun giveaway!! So many things I have wanted to try!!

  13. So many fun, everyday things in this gift basket. I only have the ice cream scoop, so it would be fun to try out the other items.

  14. I would love to win so I could share the love with my mom!

  15. I would love to win because I’m a baker and would put these items to good use!

  16. Oh the label maker would make my OCD self very happy!  And the other goodies are amazing!

  27. I’ve been lusting after a label maker for YEARS and have never bit the bullet, even though I know it would help identify the mystery contents of a million containers. 

  28. From rocking out while getting squeaky clean to creating delicious goodies for those I love- this basket provides the added extras to make a good day a great day! These goodies will help nourish my body and create yummier treats for those in my life!

  29. The waterproof bluetooth…my Husband would LOVE this!  What a great basket of favorites!
