***GIVEAWAY***Why Thursday?! TonyasTemptations!

Okay so I have been MIA again for a slight hiatus and truthfully this time I have no one to blame but myself.  The weather has been wonderful here and I have been enjoying that....Also I feel like I have always had a problem when it comes to success..Not that I am not successful by any means followers, rather, that when I am on the brink of getting something I have worked hard for I get distracted and falter.
So that has nothing to do with today's feature at all :) 
However, I do have something that does directly relate.  I have a 16m toddler named Bean and she is into everything recently!  We have for her safety and our sanity moved her to a toddler bed, and that has given her more freedom then she knows what to do with.  I go to get her from her nap one afternoon last week to discover that Bean moonlights as a wood chuck!  Yes, my daughter, sweet and adorable, well fed and healthy, has been secretly chomping away at all things wood in her room!  She has two, I am no liar!  TWO GIANT Totes of every toy a toddler could want and she insists on eating the window sill, the bed, and the baby gate.  AAAH!
So the funny part, and I promise there is a light at the end of this tunnel is that there is a huge 3" chunk I mean you would have thought there was a teething puppy in there, out of the window sill, and then set almost to ironic perfection there was her plastic teether, you know, the kind with water, well it was sitting right there on the window sill unscathed.
**Lightbulb**
I need to find that lady who I had spoken to before about those wooden teethers she makes because obviously my daughter demands the highest quality wood my money can buy!  I give you followers who may have wood chucks of your own, www.tonyastemptations.etsy.com!
Tonya is a SAHM of 3 in MA, and she knows her business!  She makes the most adorable wooden/fabric/sensory hybrid teethers I have seen out there and you have a chance to win one!

Pictured below, they are made from a wonderful mix of textures--
Natural, kiln dried maple wooden ring adorned with eye-catching fabrics and those ribbons that babies love to teeth on! Each one is one of a kind and they are priced perfectly at $8.50!  I will tell you that even if I bought four of these that is cheaper than the fix I am going to have to do in Bean's quarters!  Head over to www.tonyastemptations.etsy.com and check out all of her amazing things!  And fan her on Facebook If you would like a chance to win one of these teethers please leave a comment below telling me who you know that needs it (please include your email address so that I may contact you once you have one)!  I will announce the winner on Tuesday!!   ALSO AS A SPECIAL TREAT IF YOU MENTION BFFE IN COVO PRIOR TO CHECK OUT SHE IS GIVING 15% ANY INSTOCK OR CUSTOM ORDER!!  Thanks Tonya!

  1. Loving that you found a great use for the wooden rings. And all those colors too! My baby needs one, at 7 months he's going crazy teething on anything he can grab and chomp down on- and that's mostly me!
    Great job Tonya, as usual :). Proud for you Sewingmama!

  9. Very cool teethers! I have a 10-month old daughter who is currently teething like mad, as well as a 1-yr old neice who only has 2 teeth so far (but is working on the rest at a furious pace) and a 6 month old nephew who is a droolin' teethin' mad man! All three could (and would) use these beautiful teethers!

  10. This is Christine Hansen and I have a friend who is due with her second child and loves wonderful hand crafted items. I think one of Tonya's teething rings would be perfect for her new baby girl. Thanks,

  13. Those are cute! Much nicer than the little water filled plastic ones that my baby teethes on. I'm sure that my youngest DD would love to chew on one as her teeth are currently coming in.
    Thanks!

  21. These teethers look awesome! I wish I had one when my kids were younger but we know lots of babies that would enjoy one!!

  22. Cracking up about your wood chuck!! My BFF is pregnant with a surprise baby at the age of 39 with 2 already teenage children practically out the door. I would give her one of these. They are so cute and practical at the same time. She needs all the cuteness of what it is going to be like to have a new little one to help with the shock.

  23. These are gorgeous! I know my girls would have loved them when they were in the woodchuck stage. I have a niece in that stage right now and she would love this!

    Tonya, these teethers are a brilliant idea.

  25. This might be JUST the thing my 11 month old daughter needs! She is currently cutting her top teeth and there are many more on the way! Everything is constantly in her mouth and she needs something nice and good to teethe on. These are so creative; I'd love for her to be able to try one!
