These are a Few of My Favorite Things
When I was checking out the prize page for the Ultimate Blog Party over at 5 Minutes for Mom last night, I started thinking, what kind of things would I want to offer if I were to submit a prize?
Well here are a few things that I would love to share with you:
(Maybe I'll submit them for next year's prizes, or maybe I'll just do giveaways right here on Of Such is the Kingdom with them.)
necklaces are the greatest! They are created by hand from recycled magazines by women of the Karamojong tribe in Uganda. These girls who are selling the necklaces buy them from the women and also send 20% of the proceeds back to them. Wow!
talk about these before, I'm sure, but I do love Songs for Saplings! These are scripture memorization songs that are both catchy and well done; and that's hard to find! My kids love the folksy feel of the music (and so do I)!
3. And for my third thing I love, how about a favorite book? This one covers both great stories for your child and a great philosophy of reading: the rationale for the need of all things "faerie" for children. Wonderful!

And did you notice? These fine and beautiful things are quite frugal as well! The necklaces are $18 a piece (a steal!), the cd's are $9 and look at the great price for this book on Amazon! Head over to Frugal Fridays to check out other frugal gifts, prizes, and more!
