Babywearing Gnome Giveaway (open worldwide)

Today I am delighted to bring you a  giveaway from a friend of mine Pixie. I met her several years ago when I was writing another blog. Our daughters were toddlers back then and we became friends through our blogs.
Pixie has an Etsy shop where she sells her gorgeous handmade babywearing gnomes, felt key chains and wee folk. Pixie has kindly send a gnome to us.
When we found it on our doorstep last Saturday, Defne and I were over the moon. Pixie's enthuiasm shines through.




Defne loves playing with our gnome Sunshine. Isn't it gorgeous?
I have to add that Pixie makes it clear that these are not toys. So it is best to decide for yourself if you give these to your kids or not. Defne is 5 years old so it is not an issue for us.
During the Halloween, there were lovely babywearing witches and right now, there are Chrtistmas ornaments in the shoppe.
I asked Pixie a few questions:


- What inspired you to start your business?
I started sewing a pile of felt food for my daughter when she was 2 years old. While browsing around for ideas online I saw lots of cute little gnomes and decided to try and craft some of them for her too. One of them was a mama gnome and of course my daughter wanted the mama to have a sling & a baby just like us!
After tweaking my designs for a few months I started selling them to babywearing friends and then set up my etsy shop... Little Pixie Shoppe - called after the nickname I used to use for my daughter on my old blog - littlepixie.
· Please tell us about some of your favorite products.
My favourites have to be the little babywearing witches that were in the shoppe at Hallowe'en. They had broomsticks and long red plaits.... which answers the next question...
· What is your favorite children's book?
Has to be... Room on the Broom, a firm favourite in this house!! It's read almost every day and everyone loves it!



Pixie has kindly offered  one custom made gnome to a lucky Smiling like Sunshine reader.

  9. I personally love the gnomes in brown and green - all natural color. I do need a new keychain. However, a certain little person here would be exstatic with *purple.* I like the purple offset with the bright orange and pink.

  12. I think Ivy with tthe wee heart is adorable. I also loved Aisling with her sling and ...forgot her name but she was tandem carrying and it reminded me of my older two when I carried them.
