BooTY the THiRTHeeNTH:

I don’t know about you, but cleaning up toys is my least favorite thing ever.

I hate to do it AND my kid hates to do it.

And when those toys are BATH toys that are all wet?

Boo.

We have like a million letters and numbers for the tub.  Fishing those suckers out? Is the opposite of fun.

I wish SOMEONE out there made a scoop that was also the storage for the bath toys.

Oh wait.

Brica has a NEW Super Scoop!

This handy little guy not only scoops up the toys, it lets the water drain out and then attaches to most bath/shower walls.

I really wish we had one of these.

I LOVE Brica products!

I have two sisters-in-law who are pregnant right now and whether they register for them or not, they are getting Brica gifts from me.

That is how awesome this company is.

And they are giving one of YOU this awesome new Super Scoop!

Yay for you (said as I turn green with envy)!!

Good luck!

And party on!

The Legal Stuff: Brica is providing the super scoop to one lucky winner.  I get nothing but the joy of giving.  Although sometimes I think I would like a super scoop more than joy.  Just kidding.  Sort of.

BooTY the TWeLFTH:

I’ve shown you guys Charlie’s Nursery, right?

To change up the space after Eddie was there, we bought new letters for the wall from Jaborandi Grove.

Jen of Jaborandi Grove describes how the shop was born:

I’ve always loved to create – art, music, dance, writing. After graduating with an English degree, I fell into a career in graphic design where I happily made a home. I’m perpetually on the lookout for fresh ideas and new challenges. A few years ago when I was looking for ways to decorate our oldest daughter’s bedroom, I came across some monograms that inspired me to create decorative wall letters. I decided to open Jaborandi Grove’s Etsy shop last August and feature those.

We adore our letters and they get compliments and inquiries from everyone who visits the nursery.

I love to work with clients to develop custom products. I recently completed 3′ x 8′ banners for set design at church and 4″ x 2″ place cards for an anniversary party – no project is too big or too small!

Jen is super easy to work with.  We emailed back and forth, I sent her pics of the room so she could get an idea of color, and BOOM!

She sent us a preview that was PERFECT and exactly what I had in my mind!

So are you ready?

Jen is giving away…

1 FREE letter with the rest of the word(s) as BOGO: buy one, get one free.

So if you were buying the word “Charlie” you would get the C for free and then buy 3 of the rest of the letters and get the other 3 for free!

This is an AWESOME deal!

 Whew!  We made it to Day 3!

Did you see the other 10 giveaways?  Get in on those!

Today I have five more…so let’s get it started…

Or as Eddie would say, “Let’s DO this, MOM!”

I am starting today with one of my very favorite friends and shops.

The burp cloth that is our latest love from Kristina.

What Kristina  has to say about her shop, Sew Curly:

Sew Curly was born out of my need to be more than just a mother to the 3 girls we had in 3 years. I took my passion for sewing and designing and put it towards creating things that made our lives as a family easier and more convenient. Every product I make is thoroughly tested by my own kids (who are very honest and picky critics). Every product is used daily in our home, minus the baby items that we have now outgrown. I love doing custom orders and collaborating with customer’s visions. In the shop and you’ll find snack and sandwich bags, chalkcloth placemats, personalized blankets & burp cloths, and appliquéd shirts & onesies, along with some other items. Go and take a look at the shop and you’ll find that I make things you’ll love for the loves in your life.

I think we own at least one of everything in her shop…except those placemats…which I will totally have to change.  The boys need those.  Obviously.

We have this for Charlie in blue and white with a “C” on it…

And he has one of these which is PERFECT in the car and helps him fall asleep (because he likes something by his face)

Ah, I could put up pictures all day long, but you can go peek at her shop yourself and see all the goodness!

Cute, right?

Well Kristina is about to let you pick some of that cute out for yourself with a $30 shop credit!

It is my fave.

In fact, I think it is EVERYONE’S favorite.

Rebecca even picks it as her fave things she sells:

This is my FAVORITE Thirty-One product. I love to use it as a day bag when my kids and I are on the go. It holds diapers, wipes, my camera, bottles of water, books, toys and anything else we’ll need for a day of fun. If you book an online party through me, you will be eligible for tons of free products, hostess rewards and even booking bonuses!

Who is Cameron D Garriepy?

WHAT?  You don’t know of her magic with words?

In the eighth grade, Cameron wrote her first romance novel on an antique typewriter, using a stack of pink paper. Detours between that draft and her publishing goals have included a BA in Music, a professional culinary education, and twelve years in the child-wrangling industry. She is part of the editing team at Write on Edge.

A bit about her latest work, Parallel Jump:

Fourteen year old Jack Snow is late for baseball practice when a unusual young woman and her brother cross his path. Jack knows answering Calliope and Phineas’s call for help means he won’t make it to practice, but he cannot imagine how far from home he will end up as a result. When a mysterious force draws him through a crack in reality, leaving his two new acquaintances stranded behind, Jack, Phineas, and Calliope must all make their way amongst strangers to find their way home.

Compelling, right?

I KNOW!
