a little something fun...

oh my goodness hello everyone!

i am slowly getting better and it feels so amazing.

my 6 year old trey says i don't "look like a tortured woman anymore," and i am so glad about that :o)

your prayers, comments, and emails have meant so much to me.
i am getting soooo close to being able to blog again.

but for now, i have something for you i am SO excited about.

do you remember dani?

my sister lives in california and she is one of my sisters best friends.
i met her last year when i drove there with the kiddos, and was completely amazed by her!

she has an etsy shop where she sells fantastic patterns and ready made as well as custom order mei tai carriers!

and guess what!?  she wants to give a customized mei tai carrier away to one of my readers!

leave a comment letting us know you are in!

we will randomly pick a winner and announce it on monday!

HOW TO CUSTOMIZE:
1- Pick ONE fabric for straps (black, brown, white).
2- Pick TWO fabrics for each side of the main body.

Here are some reviews on her carriers:

"Such a BEAUTIFUL carrier!  I am so so so excited to wear it to our play group today.  I feel like I need to dress up just to match how pretty it is.  I LOVE it.... it really is gorgeous and so well made!  It's so cute and I feel all fancy wearing it... I love my Ergo, but never realized how informal and shabby it looks now! :)" - Wendy in El Cajon, California

"I absolutely love this Mei Tai and so does my daughter!  I'm glad I finally found a carrier that she likes and feels comfortable in.  I love, love, love the fabric!" - Amber in Tomball, Texas

"Got my Mei Tai today in the mail.  I LOVE IT!!! It's so pretty and the quality is excellent!  Thank you!" - Liz in Ontario, Canada

"This is a great carrier!  I love it even more than my ergo. So pretty too!  And I love the flower headband you sent, I wear them together and feel like a "pretty" mommy for a change." - Luana in San Diego, California






i have seen her carriers in person, she is a perfectionist, and her work is amazing!



(me and dani last year :o))



good luck!

i will be back to you soon i promise!
