Alhumdulilah, the American Muslim Mom brand is launching the first ever Online Eid Gift Guide!
We would love it if you debut your products with us at a very affordable ad rate.Click here for our various listing options, to best suit your advertisement preference* and to see the layout design. We anticipate launching July 1st with plenty of time to encourage sales before Ramadan, so we can focus on our ibadah rather than gift shopping during our month of fast Insha'Allah.
Space is first-come first-posted Insha'Allah. It is very important to note that this Gift Guide will stay up for the full year--and this $25 rate is less than 1-month of a 125X125 button on AmericanMuslimMom.com without text. Present rate $60/month!
We will be promoting this site heavily for the next 2 Eids as well, inshaAllah. With our specialty in SEO, Online PR & Social Media promotion, we anticipate dominating the search engines for Eid Gifts, Insha'Allah; like we do as the #1 ranked online Muslim Mom & Parenting Blog in the world, subhanallah.
If you have any questions, please ask. Otherwise, if you're ready to be considered, please complete this form today. Please write that Koloud referred you, jazaka Allahu Khayrun!
Your sister in Islam Ponn
P.S. 10% of profits will be donated to Islamic Relief, our annual partner for American Muslim Mom's 3rd Annual Ramadan Qur'an-a-thon Sadaqah Drive.

Mary had a little lamb,
little lamb, little lamb,
Mary had a little lamb,
whose fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went,
Mary went, Mary went,
and everywhere that Mary went,
the lamb was sure to go.
مريم عندها حمل صغير
حمل صغير ، حمل صغير
مريم عندها حمل صغير
صوفه ابيض مثل الثلج
وأينما مريم ذهبت
مريم ذهبت ، مريم ذهبت
وأينما مريم ذهبت
الحمل يمشى وراها

This is my third year vending at the Punk Rock Flea Market and it just keeps getting better and better. This year started with an email from the PRFM awesomest organizer, Josh Okrent, who does such a great job getting everyone taken care of for the event. I applied right away since this is one of my favorite shows of the year. To help keep table fees down, and have someone watch your stuff when you go to the bathroom, I again asked around for a table mate. I was fortunete enough to find Lori who makes jewelry, knits and prints. Her work was really gorgeous and very high quality.
It turned out to be a beautiful day with blue skies and a high in the mid 70s, which is shocking considering that it's been wet and miserable all week long. The first year I vended, I was inside right next to the stairs, but the last two years, I’ve asked to be outside. I don’t own a canopy and always take my chances that there will be no rain for the day.
I had friends visit: Roz with her doggie that smelled good from an earlier bath, my brother from a different mother, Sean came with his friend Casey, who brought me my favorite soap and Rebecca came by with her family and shared some good sounding laughs over cards. Oh, there was music too! Tuba players with a Russian band, a sweet sounding mbira player that wandered the aisles and bluegrass ballads from a soulful banjo. And what PRFM isn't complete without the smells of food? We had ice cream, Kimchee, rice and beans, hot dogs, cupcakes and hamburgers to temp our taste buds.
What a sweet way to start (to me) the first official craft show of the season. Hope you can come out next year!

Last year we rented a button machine and they coloured buttons that I then made at home and they handed those out. This year, since they were a year old, we made these flower SWAPs that was a bit more hands on. I thought it might be fun to share how we made them so you can also try to make your own!
You will need:
1 1/2 inch Ribbon
The ribbon you get has to have wires on both sides and is readily available at any craft store:
Cut the ribbon to 8 1/2 inches long.
Cut the ribbon length-wise.
Cut a tiny bit of the fabric on the end with the scissors.
The reason you cut a tiny bit of the fabric off is that it's easier to grab the wires on the end. While holding both ends of the wire, gather the ribbon to the center.
Place both wires through opening in the back loop of a safety pin. and pull till the fabric is all the way up the safety pin.
Twist the wire around the loop (sorry this is a bit blurry, it's a new camera and I'm still trying to figure it out :).
Now you are all done to pin your SWAP on your clothing or to trade with others!
