So...if your interested in participating....and yes that means you promise to feature this Pay-It-Forward on your own blog and keep it going....just be one of the first three people to leave a comment! Oh..and be sure to leave your blog address so I can try and get a sense of what kind of fun things I should send.
I'm not sure what lovely goodies I'll be creating (that's half the fun) and I won't promise to have them in the mail next week (I do have kids you know) but I do promise that they'll be fun and they will be mailed in a reasonable time frame!

Color Choices (listed from left to right, top to bottom)
A girl can only be expected to hold back her fabric addition for so long, so ..... occasionally you'll find items in the shop in new fabrics that will be limited in production!

So here's my answer:
Well...if you have new little ones they are great for:
pretty background for "just one more picture"
a comfy place to lay on hardwood floors
fashionable spot to lay/sit at playgroup
And as they get a little older:
Mommy and Me Class
Tablecloth (for a picnic, restaurant or anywhere else you don't want food to "touch" the table!
Provides a clean spot to sit down ..... anywhere!
....still a nice blanket
drop cloth for messy eaters
so you see... there really isn't a simple answer! It's fun to come up with new ways to use it.
Do you have your Play Dot yet?
The pictures here are from the first sample bag (I really love the green, may have to keep it for myself) and while there are still some tweaks to be made, I'm really happy with it.
I love the the solid cotton twill for the outside (makes it a little more hubby friendly) and will probably use this khaki along with chocolate brown and grey for exterior color choices.
I also like using the little bits of pattern on the outside to "hint" at what you'll find for the lining!
There are lots of pockets, a key fob, elastic bottle/sippy holder as well as an additional elastic holder for a rolled changing pad that will be available seperately!
The back of the bag has a large pocket for holding a magazine, coloring books, etc!
Now, I just need to make the final changes and get them sewn! I hope to have a few in the shop
in the coming weeks!

and I just think they are adorable! Since the shop has recently undergone a name and design change, I've had to start ordering new tags, labels, business cards etc. I've done lots of looking, trying to find just the right person to order from and a couple of weeks ago I came across Max & Bella, an adorable shop I found on Etsy. I placed a small order for a few hangtags, hoping that I would love them! Well...they arrived today and I am so happy. I'll be back in her shop soon for lots more!
If you're on the prowl for really cool tags, stickers and so much more be sure to stop by her shop!

***disclaimer*** Just in case you noticed that the hand in the picture doesn't much look like the hand of a three year old...both of my boys have been sick all weekend and weren't really up for the pressure of drawing a winner today! A mother's work is never done!!
