  1. Oh wow! It is hard to just choose ONE item from each. I love the new design curly wire card holder from curlywire. I LOVE the reversible pinafores from Little Brown Crane!!!! I also love the snuglymats…what an awesome idea!

    Thanks for this great giveaway. I found your blog on BSU! :)



  2. Lets see..I love the Personalized tile coasters from curly wire. We all need coasters!

    And from little brown crane, I LOVE the nursing covers! I am having a baby soon and Need one of these.

    I am going to go Blog about your give away right now 😉

  3. You like to make it easy, huh?

    Since curlywire has only one product, I like the custom marble photo tile coasters {*grin*} I probably would have chosen them no matter what anyway.

    On the other hand, Little Brown Crane has more variety, but less of interest to me (other than the back pack). But … if I still had little ones about, I’d go for the little cowboy changing pad.

    Good luck on the give-away!

  4. i liked the crayon holders – i couldn’t see the fabrics closely enough to know which one exactly i’d pick but i have a grandson so the cowgirl one is out!!! i’m a follower!!!! i’m faithful!!!! please pick me!!!! pick me!!! pick me!!!!!

    ps… as you see i have no pride, either and will beg shamelessly on command :)

  5. Love the photo tiles from Curly Wire, would use pictures of the kids. The shabby chic snuggly mat is too cute, I would definitely use that for my little girl!

    *I am now a follower. Cute blog!
