Timestamp: 2008-12-22 23:04:15 UTC

Congratulations, Esther!  Watch for an email requesting your shipping information.  You’ll have 3 days to respond, or I’ll draw another name.  Thanks for trying everyone!  I loved hearing the many ways that you all love to spend a little “me time,” and was amazed how many of us love that tub time with a book!  Sorry I don’t have a package for everyone!  Happy Holidays!

After many giveaways for the kiddos, I decided that it’s time to host a grownup giveaway!  This giveaway is just “for her” and features four fun products.  The apron you see pictured above is a vintage inspired camisole apron with back ties at the neck and waist and a right front pocket.  It’s 100% cotton that’s machine washable and it’s made by Now Designs.  If you love to cook, a pretty apron only makes it even more enjoyable!  If you hate to cook, at least you can look good while you’re doing something that has to be done.  🙂  The fabric in the picture above doesn’t show well, so here’s another pic that shows the colors better (light blue with cheery red cherries):

The next thing in the giveaway is a pair of earrings handmade by me!  That’s right – I do a bit of “dabbling” with beads and jewelry making.  The pair I’m giving is made from blown glass and Swarovski crystal beads on sterling silver hook earwires.  They’re mostly black with swirls of white and amber that adds a warm glow.  The crystal beads add just the right amount of twinkle.  Here’s a pic:


And finally, two books: The Alchemist, for when you’re feeling in a deep philosophical mood, and Silk for when you’re in a sultry philosophical mood.  Both will be great company through the long winter nights and might be best enjoyed while relaxing in a luxurious bubble bath.  You deserve some “me time!” (Psst!  Coincidentally,  iMommy has a great post about taking some “Me Time.”  Go give her some love!)

To enter this giveaway, leave a comment on this post.  Any comment is fine, but I’d love to hear about your favorite way to spend your precious “me time” alone.  One extra entry for posting a comment at Twitter about this giveaway & review, then commenting (in a separate comment) here with the URL of your tweet.  If you don’t use Twitter, you can email your friends and include me in the email (psychmamma(at)hotmail(dot)com) and leave an additional comment here telling me that you did it.  Please leave separate comments for each entry opportunity in order to receive full credit.  Contest ends at 6 p.m. EST on Monday, December 22. One winner will be chosen via random number generator.  The winner must provide a valid email address and respond to prize notification within 3 days. After 3 days, your prize will be forfeited and another winner will be notified. Contest is open to all readers.

    Oh, I just love to drive, alone, with the radio up. Anywhere, even if it’s errands… Doesn’t matter. Love to be alone in the car, singing!

    Me time is kind of foreign right now with homeschooling 5 kids. When there is a small minute or two, taking a nap, or reading a good book is nice.

    My Mommy Me-Time… a long hot shower, then hanging out in my robe reading – a good book or catching up on blogs!

    On the rare occasion that I have some me time I love to take a nice long bath with a good book. I also like cooking a nice meal, but I HATE thinking about it and shopping in preparation for the meal…

    Long hot showers are my fave. Especially at the gym because I’m using someone else’s hot water! lol. If I’m already clean and don’t need a shower, I’ll typically just take a nap.

    Me time is absolutely reading or writing. I can’t believe that I once had unlimited time for this. They always say that you only appreciate things when they’re gone…

  20. Jenn S.

    December 16, 2008 at 12:55 pm

    Shopping! I rarely get to do it alone, so when I can go to the mall or wherever to shop all by myself its a huge treat.

    December 16, 2008 at 12:58 pm

    Hi, I think a nice hot bubble bath with candles burning and soft music is my all time favorite “me time”. I also like to work on journaling and art journals. Thanks for the giveaway!

  22. WannaBeSkinny

    December 16, 2008 at 1:23 pm

    How do I spend my “me” time. Usually I only get that when no one is home and it’s short lived. Usually watching TV because I rarely get to pick what I want. How sad is that!

  23. Andrea

    December 16, 2008 at 1:23 pm

    I like to run all by myself for some me time. I like to just get outdoors and listen to nature and I feel so awesome after a good run

    December 16, 2008 at 1:34 pm

    The Alchemist is my all-time favorite book! Ever. EVER. AND you are giving away an Apron? I do believe I am in mommy metime heaven. Truly. I seriously hope that I win this one. (The earrings are beautiful too and I am sure the other book is great but I am sitting here slack-jawed over the other parts of this glorious giveaway!)

    My favorite “me” time is my time driving to and from band practice each week. I listen to an audio book, or crank up music I wouldn’t get to listen to with my kids in the car.

    Me time? Oh, I love to read. And if I can read in the bath, that’s so much better. A close second is making cookies and eating the dough before the cookies get baked. 😀

    My family knows that momma’s bath tub time is not to be interupted…I fill my extra deep soaking tub with hot water and bubbles, have a glass of wine, light candles, and read/listen to soothing music…after an hour, I can devote myself to my family again.

    WOW Me time huh? What is that? It has been a while. I love to stamp cards so I think that’s what I would do with some me time.

    Oh and the apron is adorable.

    Merry Christmas

    My “ME” time…I am a short term nanny and go to different homes, as needed…I always leave very early…first so I won’t get lost…but always to relax in the car, read or knit, about 1/2 hour before each job…
    ALso…a great big bubble bath…is what I love as well

    My “me time” is often spent with a cup of hot tea and a good book, or indulging in a rerun of House M.D.

    My me time is spent sweating hard at the gym. It feels delicsiously selfish to drop the kids off for 90 minutes and sweat all by myself for 90 minutes!

    I love to read – in the summer I like to sprawl out on our deck and soak up the sun and warm weather. In the winter I love to curl up by the fire with a cup of hot coco and snuggly socks on. Reading lets me travel without leaving the house!

    Now me time, hmmm let me think I might have had about 1 1/2 minutes the other day in the bathroom. Wait take that back, youngest came in 15 seconds after I went in. Hmmm thinking back I use to love to read books, if I ever found that peace time that is what I would do 🙂

    Me time is spent cross stitching, sewing or reading. All those homemaker-type arts, I guess, are comforting in this busy, tech-heavy world.

    I hope it okay to say this…. My “alone time” is kinda “let’s be naughty time”… if ya know what I mean (wink). Then my stresses are released and I can relax.

    I love these giveaways. I need an apron. My kids and I make homemade pizza often and flour can be messy…LOL. Also, I need a couple new books. I do love to read.

  138. Sherri B.

    December 20, 2008 at 1:01 pm

    What little “me” time I get, I spend it reading. I like TV as much as the next person, but reading is my passion. I can make my own “show” in my head while reading!!!

    spending time at the climbing wall at my gym.

    Me Time? For me, it’s more like Doe Ray Me Time – I listen to music. I put on the headphones and sit in a dark room, close my eyes, and drift away. Until one of the kids starts yelling.

  176. Kirsten/Mama Ginger Tree

    December 21, 2008 at 10:28 pm

    I’ve often said, if I win the lottery and didn’t have to work, I could be happy spending the rest of my life just reading. Of course, I’d find a few other ways to spend my time and money, but it would be a great joy to be able to buy any book that looked interesting and to sit all day and read whenever the mood struck me!

    Me time? What is that? there is such chaos in my life. So when I get a moment to myself, I like to feel alone somewhere. Alone in a corner of the library, or alone in a field off the bike path. I will take a drive at night, or go to campus when I know everyone is sleeping and walk around. It is really odd, but I feel more ownership of my community when I see it in its most vulnerable state at night, when people are sleeping, when nothing is happening… the lights are low and it is quiet.
