I too, am in love with the rocking board! If I had to choose between the two items, I think I like the swing best (but I love both!)

I know our daughter would love the birch walking stilts. I personally have my eyes on a pair of play stands which allow for open ended play...Have even been thinking of placing one on each side of her bed with a canopy on top....
Thank you for having such a wonderful variety of natural, imaginative toys.

I've always wanted a Bolga basket and I LOVE the waldorf paint jars. That rocker board is pretty awesome though! Fingers are crossed! My girls would love playing in our backyard with either one of these giveaway goodies : )


Congratulations, Theresa, Nicole and MaryLea! Please remember you have 1 week to contact us at with your snail mail address or a new winner will be selected. Thanks, again, Sarah!

Bella Luna "In the Good Old Summertime" Giveaway

EDIT: In the land of Oops... We were going to running this giveaway last week and when we pushed it off a week, I forgot to change the dates. So... to everyone that read this and saw that the contest was closed last week... my bad! We fixed the dates, but to state it again, for anyone that didn't enter... the contest runs from Wednesday, August 17 to Sunday, August 21 at 9 pm EST. Thanks to everyone that brought this to our attention :) 

It's been a while since we featured any of our "In the Good Old Summertime" activities, in part, because we've been out and about enjoying this Good Old Summertime. And, although we haven't featured all of the activities we planned on, our lovely sponsors aren't letting the ball drop.

This week we have an incredible giveaway from Sarah, at Bella Luna Toys. If this doesn't help your family enjoy some Good Old Summertime time, I'm not sure what could :) There are 3 fabulous giveaways. Two lucky winners will receive:

Natural Branch Wooden Walking Blocks

These natural wooden walking block stilts, cut from natural birch branches, will provide hours of fun for young children as they challenge their gross motor skills and balance.

Handmade from select birch trees by a small family business in northern Vermont.

Each walking block is approximately 3" in diameter and 3" high

Birch with100% cotton rope

Ages 3-6

Made in USA

And, one lucky winner will receive:

The Original Tree Swing

The Original Tree Swing is a classic rope swing with a handmade seat made from reclaimed elm.

Each seat is kiln dried and sanded, then hand-rubbed with a light coat of mineral oil to bring out the natural beauty of the wood.

Comes with 20 feet of the best 3/4" natural fiber rope available. No oil or chemicals make the rope and swing eco-friendly and child-safe.

Ages 3 and up

Elm and natural fiber rope

Swing Seat:  approximately 12" dia.; 2" thick

Rope: 20 ft. long

Made in USA

Sarah is also giving all Wee Folk Art readers a 10% discount on all orders for 2 weeks, beginning today, August 17, and running through Sunday, August 31. (Thank you, Sarah!) This is something you will want to take advantage of, I know I will! To take advantage of the discount, just use the coupon code WFA10 at checkout.

To enter, simply visit Bella Luna, and tell us what you would like to use your 10% coupon on. I know what I'd like. I love the Rocker Board! Check it out and make sure to watch the video.

So, get busy. Spend some time at Bella Luna Toys, then come back here and share a toy that really speaks to you! Also, let us know if you'd like to win the walking blocks or the tree swing. If it doesn't matter, then let us know that, too :)

The contest runs from today, Wednesday, August 17th, through Sunday, August 21th at 9:00 pm EST. Winners will be chosen at random, and they will have 1 week to contact us with their snail mail address or a new winner will be selected.

BTW... Sarah will ship overseas if the winner pays shipping costs. In the meantime, good luck to one and all. And as always, thanks to Sarah, from Bella Luna Toys, for sponsoring this lovely giveaway :)

Also, watch next week for a wonderful Giveaway from Bella Luna Toys. When isn't THAT wonderful news :)

3 Year Anniversary Giveaway

(First photo on Wee Folk Art)

In some ways it is hard to believe Wee Folk Art is 3 years old. Three years... wow. We certainly had no idea of where or what Wee Folk Art would become when we first started. Here is our initial Welcome, posted on July 29, 2008.

No matter how you happened to stumble upon this blog you are most certainly welcome! This blog is written by a mother/daughter team. Although our personalities and personal style differ, we hold true to the same values. Family and home, crafting and creating, guide us through our days. The purpose of Wee Folk Art is twofold. First, we hope to share arts and crafts that enhance the lives of children and beautify the home. Second, we will share our family’s creative adventures and exploration of the natural world. We are ever conscious of the environment and how our actions impact it. We generally use all natural materials and believe, especially with children, homemade is best and less CAN be more. (Okay…this does not apply to the stashes in our craft rooms!) We hope you make a point of stopping by often, and not only do we welcome, but encourage your comments and feedback. The plan is to offer free monthly patterns and sell a limited number of kits and finished products, as time permits. A monthly give away will give you a chance to win our latest kits! So, once again, welcome. We are a work in progress. Be patient and vocal! Watch us evolve! 

So... we have held true to most of this with a couple exceptions. First, we certainly offer more than 1 FREE Pattern a Month, I think we average 2 a week, and second, we do not sell kits, nor do we seem to find the time to create projects that we can sell. But all in all, Michelle and I are very proud of our site and are thrilled with the friends we've made over the years. As a group, you continue to challenge us through requests and encouragement. We love what we do, and it makes it more joyous because we are able to share with thousands of readers each day.

Some of you have been with us from the beginning, following us from the other blogs Michelle and I hosted. Others are spankin' new, with the numbers growing everyday. We are grateful for each and every one of you and hope to continue doing that thing we do for a long time :)

So, here's a few trivia questions:

What was the first tutorial we shared? Click HERE for the answer.

Where do our gnomes live? Click HERE for the answer.

What was the first edible recipe we shared? Click HERE for the answer.

What was our first applique block? Click HERE for the answer.

What tutorial is most frequently visited? Click HERE for the answer.

Who are you guys? Click HERE for the answer :)

To celebrate our anniversary, as is the blogging community's custom :) we are having a giveaway. What better way to celebrate than to give a little Wee Folk Art Gnomey Love away? We've had a Cafe Press account for the past year and have many readers that surround themselves with Wee Folk Art "stuff". One of the most common suggestions we've had, however, was to expand our wares beyond the organic line that was featured. The organics are more expensive, and the selection was limited, so, we've added many more products to the store to hopefully meet everyone's needs for gnomes!

To celebrate our Third Anniversary, two lucky winners will receive a Wee Folk Art mug... brimming with gnomey love :) Anyone can enter.

To enter, simply visit Wee Folk Art's Cafe Press Shop, look around, then come back here and tell us what your favorite item/s are in our comments. Wouldn't hurt to give us a big hug, too! (Doesn't better your chances of winning, but it will make us feel good :)The contest will run from today, until Monday, August 1, at 9:00 p.m. EST. The winners will be drawn at random then have 1 week to contact us with their snail mail address or a new winner will be drawn.

You know you want to wake up each more with your hands wrapped around a mug covered with sweet gnomes:) And, again, thanks to one and all for your love and inspiration. We wouldn't be doing this without you!
