Hi, Friends. I’m very happy to introduce Andrea Howe as the latest lovely contributor at Petit Elefant. Andrea will be sharing her awesomeness and expertise as a contributor in all things crafty and we are very excited about it. Please join me in welcoming Andrea to Petit Elefant.

Wow it’s snowy out in my neck of the woods. Snowy, cold and very, very wintery. I’d give anything to be on a beach somewhere but since I’m not, I’m going to enjoy the weather I have and burrow in for the winter. Instead of dreaming of surfing somewhere (I wouldn’t dare!) I’m going to light a fire tonight. We’re going to have soup for dinner and hot tea afterwards in front of the fireplace while I nestle in with a good book.
Do you have certain books you read and movies you watch when it’s cold outside? I tend to watch almost exclusively BBC shows once we’ve packed up Fall and head into December: Sherlock (OBVS), Pride + Prejudice (Colin Firth version, of course), Upstairs Downstairs, you name it. As long as there’s a BBC stamp in the corner I’m usually game. I end up using words like ‘posh’ and ‘marvelous’ and phrases like ‘ that’s rather daring’ and ‘we mustn’t!’. I wish I were joking, but I can totally understand why Madonna and good old Gwennie end up … >> find out more…

Thank you for participating, friends. The winner of our movie giveaway is #108, Amelie.
Please contact us with in 48 hours, Amelie. Congrats! A summer of movies headed your way!
I love movies. I mean I really, really love movies. I spent my childhood watching offbeat comedies with my siblings, all the John Wayne classics with my dad, Masterpiece Theater productions and every Doris Day movie ever with my mom. Movies, I’m all about that business. Summer movies especially. There’s nothing like sitting inside a freezing air-conditioned movie theater with good friends, all hopped up on sugary candy and buttery over-salted popcorn sipping a cold bubbly drink while being transported by the latest Summer blockbuster. I’m not the only one with a lifetime of those blissful summer memories, am I?
Okay, so maybe I am.
I want my kids to have their own Summer movie memories so I’m currently compiling a huge list of movies for my children to see before I leave the nest (*SOB*). It’s unbelievable to me sometimes the stuff they haven’t seen (shut up, I know they’re still little). I’ve got an arsenal of amazing movies up my sleeve for them, and while … >> find out more…

Bath + body products. You don’t even want to know how many different lotions and oils and sugar scrubs I have crowding my bathroom shelves. Well, maybe you do. I always want to know what my girlfriends are wearing that makes them smell so good. The brand of that fabulous new lotion my mom recently discovered at a random boutique in Ohio while visiting the grandkids. So I thought you might want to know what I’ve been obsessing over the last few months, and offer a little Mother’s Day giveaway while we’re at it.
80 Acres Body Care. That’s the name I whisper to anyone who tells me I smell good. It’s my secret weapon. I truly can’t get enough of 80 Acres and everything in their tasty, delicious body care line. In fact, I’ve already burned through an entire tub of their Verde Olive Oil Salt Scrub and an entire bottle of Blood Orange body oil. It only took me 4 months to completely deplete my stores of … >> find out more…

New swimsuit time. I know, it’s rough sometimes, but I have a feeling you’ve kept in shape all winter because you’re good like that.
It’s your lucky day then, good for you hitting the gym during the cold months, because it’s time for a swimsuit giveaway. Albion, a Utah based company, is having a grand opening of a storefront in Utah of fitness gear and swimwear at Creek in downtown Salt Lake City. To celebrate, we’re hosting a giveaway of a swimsuit from Albion. They’re so adorable, you definitely want in on this action.
If you’re in Utah, you should come to the grand opening for the new store on Monday, April 1st at City Creek from 11 am – 2 pm.

Do you remember the great natural bath + household products I was talking about a few weeks ago? The Honest Company, the green product company Jessica Alba co-founded, is giving away a years supply of products!
That’s a lot more fantastic than one Monday can handle, I think.
How are you feeling about natural, green products these days? I know there’s a lot of talk all over the place about what’s truly green, what’s really natural, and whether or not any of it means anything at all. Where do you stand? Are you all over everything green and wonderful or are you not super concerned with any of it? I grew up in a super duper hippie household with all natural vinegar and water type cleaning solutions, green compost and shredded newspaper all over the garden. My dad used to (and still does) hang milk jugs from the fruit trees filled with an organic insect repellant, and I was horrified at the … >> find out more…
