Closd: Fab Friday Giveaways: Heidis Handmades

Well it is Friday again! Can you believe it? I couldn't yesterday--because I looked at my calendar and saw that I had forgotten to line up a giveaway for today! I advertised my lack of planning on Etsy's promotion boards and Heidi stepped up to the plate instantly! I am SO thankful for her!

Heidi is the genius behind Heidi's Handmades. She lives in sunny Florida with her husband (who is proud to claim the title of United States Marine!) and a busy mom to her three children.

Nine years ago, Heidi took a soapmaking class in 2000 and fell in love with the craft! After several years of playing around and making things for friends and family, she decided it was time to finally sell her creations. Then she found Etsy and, ever since, she's enjoyed every minute of Heidi's Handmades! Besides the websites listed in the giveaway section, you can find Heidi outside of Etsy on her website, MySpace, and Flickr.

Heidi only uses 100% vegetable oil, skin safe colorants and fragrance or essential oils in her products to make sure it's safe AND fun and delicious to use. NO chemicals! Now that is awesome! Heidi also makes many of her products immediately following a placed order. She loves the scent of Lavender (YAY! my fave, too!) and honey is her favorite material to work with...so lets see what she does with those:

Look at this scrumptious strawberry sugar scrub! I'd be tempted to eat it!



I thought this body spray was hilarious: Monster Away Spray! It comes in a lot of different scents that sound divine!



How about unwinding at night with a bath and a bar of chocolate soap? ooo la la!



I love ALL things lemon so this body butter would probably be my top pick!



She even makes candles! With a cousin serving abroad as an Army Ranger one holds a special place in my heart because 50% of the proceeds from this candle go to the troops! How neat is that?


Want it RIGHT NOW?
Buy it!

Heidi has had 999 sales! AND 100% positive feedback! WOW! She must be awesome!

She is offering 40% off to her 1,000th buyer's entire order! (In a paypal refund.) So what are you waiting for? Get on over to Heidi's Handmades and be her 1000th buyer!

If you miss out and are 1001, don't worry--there is still a 10% off discount code for Monkeys on the Bed! readers! Just mention that you saw her products here and she'll refund you 10% off your order.

Want to try your luck?
Win it!

Heidi is giving away a basket of bath and body goodies worth $15!:
Plumeria Hand & Body cream
Hello Sugar Soap
Rosehip Jasmine Body Spray
