Syrendell Silk Streamer Stick {Handmade Giveaway #5}

Remember, back in March, when I participated in Code Name: Mama's March of Kindness? If not, here's a quick run-down: All through March, she had a meme based on random acts of kindness. The goal was to go above of your everyday acts and do something extra for your family, friends, complete strangers, and even yourself. I took part, attempting to help others whenever I had the opportunity. I had a lot of fun finding new ways to perform these acts of kindness! (Read about them HERE.) Throughout the month, she had giveaways here and there for those who were participating. I was so lucky to have won a $20 gift certificate to Syrendell on Etsy, donated by Zoie of Touchstone Z!

What I chose to buy with the card were two Silk Streamer Sticks for Little Guy. We head off to our free community outdoor concerts every week all summer long and I am envisioning Little Guy dancing and twirling his streamers! When they arrived, we were having a gorgeous spring day, so we took them outside to give them a "whirl", so to speak. He loves them!

And, as always, here is a bit about Syrendell from their Etsy profile:

"Syrendell is the collaboration of love, abundance, peace, health and happiness in the Tan Family. We share our knowledge and talents with others through our arts, crafts, writing, and music in order to help others have an enriched, holistic, joyful life!"
In addition to these fun Silk Streamers, Syrendell offers an abundance of other items. I ordered myself enough of their handspun Alpaca Yarn to make my sister a scarf for next winter (shh... don't tell her!) It is dyed beautifully and so soft... I've often wondered if it might just be me who's wearing that scarf when it starts snowing again! Also, there are a ton of eBooks and patterns that show you how to do things like naturally dye eggs, create felted slippers (remember this if you win my Merino Wool Batts giveaway!), and even how to incorporate aromatherapy into holistic healing and daily routine - for children!

Well, on to the giveaway: I am going to give one of you a Silk Streamer of your very own! My little guy has so much fun with his that I feel that this is the perfect, no-voltage toy for any child - girl, boy, very young, older... if they like to play, they'll love this!

Use this as a fun toy, or a beautiful decoration. Stick is about 6-8 inches in length, made from hard wood, sanded, carved, and then sealed with a coat of organic beeswax. 6 ribbons that are .5 inches in width cascade down approximately a half a yard (18 in.) each in either yellow, orange, red, green, blue, tan, burgundy, pink, gold or lavender silk, naturally dyed by hand. Colors will vary with each order.

Habotai silk ribbon edges will gently fray over time. Beautiful!

Now, in addition to their Etsy items and eBooks, Syrendell has a few of blogs. At the Syrendell Blog, you will find all kinds of posts about home learning, music, art, and nature. There are posts about craft ideas, books, and general fun here. This is MY kind of blog! And I love their tag-line and acronym: "Learn and LAPHHwith us!"

                                                                       L = Love

A = Abundance

P = Peace        

H = Health       

 H = Happiness  

Then, you can head on over to their blog, The Waldorf Way, which focuses on tips, ideas, and thoughts about the Waldorf method of learning. I really like how this blog is written. I am a homeschool advocate to my very bones, but I tend to stay with the unschooling theory. Yet, after reading quite a few of the posts here, I am learning just how closely Waldorf and unschooling are. I will definitely be following their posts closely from now on - learning doesn't begin when a child is six and my little guy is just sucking up all the information that floats past his little head right now. Any tips on how to help him find, process, retain, and use that information are right up my alley!
And their third blog, Syrendell Academy, is their site for learning! Syrendell offers private lessons, teleseminars, eBooks, and video tutorials on a variety of subjects.Painting, fiber arts (knitting, felting, spinning, etc.), aromatherapy, and drawing are just a few of their lesson offerings. 

You can get yourself a great discount at Syrendell's Etsy shop! They are offering my readers a 15% discount if you use THE coolest code ever: KARMA1 (Yeah, I told you it was cool!)
