New Giveaway: Momscape’s Sweet “Bee Raw Honey” Giveaway {Contest Closed}


Congratulations to Lle. S. who won our Sweet “Bee Raw Honey” Giveaway. Stay tuned for more giveaways!


Enter to win a package of 3 jars of artisanal, fair trade honey from Bee Raw Honey...

The essence of BeeRaw Honey’s products is in their simplicity, skipping processing to feature honey as nature created it: raw, real and so pleasing to the palate that you’ll stash away that old honey bear for good.

To celebrate and support America’s rich beekeeping heritage, Bee Raw partners with family-owned apiaries around the country and derives each varietal from a single local floral source to achieve a distinct flavor, color and aroma.

Each Bee Raw varietal honey is “fairly traded,” meaning the local beekeepers that produce them receive a premium price for their premium product. Bee Raw also strives to be socially and environmentally sustainable by employing local manual laborers and using postconsumer paper and glass packaging.

The company’s assortment of innovative honey flights, classic honey jars, and honey gift assortments can be purchased at, along with a brand new line of estate-grown loose teas.

We love Bee Raw Honey so much, we’re giving away a selection of 3 10.5 ounce jars from The Bee Raw single varietal honey collection:

Our winner will receive a 10.5 ounce jar in each of the following flavors:

Wild Raspberry Honey, Maine—Light yellow in color and floral with a unique raspberry finish intertwined with the aroma of warm cocoa butter. Try it with raspberries, peaches, pears or sour cream.

Wild Black Sage Honey, California—Sage gets its name from the Latin salvia (meaning “to heal”). This honey is mild with a mouth-warming hint of pepper and a smooth, clean finish. Pair with Parmigiano Reggiano, wine-poached pears or goat cheese ice cream.

Star Thistle Honey, Colorado—Thick and creamy with soft notes of cinnamon and a long, sweet finish. Perfect for oven-roasted apples, hot apple cider or in a recipe for pan-seared prawns. 10.5 ounce jar

Cool Things – A Random Book about the Power of ANYone

Here’s a new book to check out with your kids:

A Random Book about the Power of ANYone
A Random Book about the Power of ANYone

When Talia Leman was just ten years old, she rallied students from four thousand U.S. school districts to report more than $10 million for Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.  Then she founded RandomKid, a nonprofit organization that brings youth together across the globe, providing them with tools and resources to create positive change.

Today RandomKid has unified the efforts of 12 million children bringing aid to four continents. In Talia’s new book A RANDOM BOOK ABOUT THE POWER OF ANYONE, Talia Leman – now seventeen and a senior in high school— shows readers how to find their passion and make room for life’s surprises, demonstrating that everyone has what it takes to make a difference for anything that matters to them.

Passionate about the potential we all have inside us, Talia writes, “The truth is, our power comes from being who we are, exactly as we are, and doing what we do, exactly as we are compelled to do it! When you spread value—by generously giving it away from the genuine place of you—people sit up, wake up, and pay attention.”

Writing with enthusiasm and humor Talia shares her secrets for being greater than you know how to be, including:

·         Sideways is a better way to go forward

·         If life gives you lemons, lemonade is just one option

·         Too many cooks is the right number

·         Purpose happens by accident

·         It’s not about thinking outside the box; it’s about not having a box at all

Cool Baby Things – gogo Kidz Travelmate Car Seat Stroller


I just saw this on the pages of Budget Travel magazine and immediately wished I’d had this when my kids were wee.

Available online from, the gogo Kidz Travelmate Car Seat Stroller is a convenient and safe attachment for your car seat. Instead of carrying your car seat and child through the airport, you can wheel them!

Check out this toddler and mama just cruising through baggage claim…


gogo Kidz Travelmate Car Seat Stroller
gogo Kidz Travelmate Car Seat Stroller
This thing is a must-have for parents traveling with toddlers. Because the FAA strongly recommends children under 40 lbs. be seated in a child car seat on an airplane, parents have had to haul their car seats through the airport, straining their backs, arms and patience. The gogo Kidz significantly lightens the load of parents on the go with toddlers and all their gear. Plus it eliminates the need to rent or borrow a car seat at your destination. It’s easy to mount and lays flat in the trunk or backseat of the car when not in use.

You might also want the carrying case, also available from

gogo Kidz Travelmate Storage Bag

The black, non-woven, drawstring bag folds up small when not in use.

And here are BabyEarth Coupons, when available.

Cool Things – The Invisible “Conceal Shelf”


Here’s an easy home decor project out there for you minimalists who love books!

Available online from Uncommon Goods, these two rendition of the “conceal shelf” are oh-so simple in design:

Conceal Shelf
Conceal Shelf
Price: $14.99
Why dust standard shelves or clutter your floor with stacks of books when your books can float on the wall? This powder coated steel shelf designed by Miron Lior becomes invisible behind a stack of books – creating the illusion of a floating pile of tomes. (Available in two sizes: The regular size holds up to 15 pounds. The large size holds up to 20 pounds.)

Or maybe you’d prefer this one, also available online from Uncommon Goods:

Conceal L Shelf
Conceal L Shelf

Like the best literature, this startling bookshelf will have you rethinking the way you look at the world. A new twist on the popular “invisible” Conceal Shelf, your books will appear to rest on a bar of sleek black plywood that bends downward (perhaps under the weighty ideas written on those pages). But instead of sliding off, the shelf’s hidden hardware keeps your books defying gravity and easily accessible for use.

A very cool thing!
