Burpie Bundles Bib Review


Started by a stay-at-home mom of 3 children, BurpieBundles has an awesome variety of handmade baby and toddler accessories. At Burpie Bundles, you can find everything from bibs to nursing covers.


I received an adorable Groovy Guitar wipeable bib for review (pictured below). This handmade waterproof and wipeable bib is constructed of quilting quality cotton fabric topped with clear vinyl and finished with color-coordinated binding. It is generously sized (approx. 9 inches wide and 8 inches long from the bottom of the neck opening) for great coverage and the strong Velcro closure helps ensure that it stays put. It is the perfect bib for your baby to use from the first bite of cereal through learning to self-feed.




The first time I put this bib to the test was a spaghetti dinner for my two year old son. Boy, was I impressed! He demolished his plate of spaghetti, which in turn meant that the bib was literally covered in spaghetti sauce and stray noodles. Now, it was cleanup time. All that I had to do was a quick wipe down of the bib and it was totally clean! That made for one happy Mama!

Now you might think that something so absolutely adorable and easy to clean might be kind-of expensive... but you would be wrong! BurpieBundles offers these bibs in tons of different designs for just $7.00 each. A handmade, unique, wipeable bib for under 10 bucks! I am lovin' it!

This bib, along with every other product offered at Burpie Bundles, would be a perfect gift for any expecting Mama or birthday baby! Another great thing about Burpie Bundles is that special deals are offered for purchasing coordinating items. Also, items can also be personalized at your request! Who could ask for more?? I would completely recommend any items offered at Burpie Bundles for your own children, as well as for a gift. The recipient will be totally impressed – and think you spent tons of money on a handmade bib!

Burpie Bundles is graciously offering 10% off all purchases for Opinions of a Moody Mama readers! Just use coupon code “moodymama” at checkout, valid until April 30, 2010.

I did not receive any comensation for this review. I did receive a bib from Burpie Bundles free of charge to facilitate the review. All opinions are 100% mine.

Thanks to Busy.B{Custom}Designs!

I have received so many compliments on my new layout that I wanted to take a second and share with you a little about it's wonderful creator! Brianne at Busy.B{Custom}Designs took just a few of my favorite things and somehow managed to create a layout that couldn't fit me more perfectly!
Not only can you find custom blog layouts, headers, buttons, and banners at Busy.B{Custom}Designs, you can also find personalized invitations, birth announcements, thank you card, address labels and letterhead. She is a woman of many trades!
I could not have asked for a nicer person to work with through the layout creation process than Brianne. She answered all of my questions quickly and in terms that even I could understand. Not to mention, she had it all done super quick!
Needless to say, I would absolutely recommend Busy.B{Custom}Designs for all of your blog layout and personalized printable project needs! Be sure and check her out!

Corinna Couture Patchwork Skirt { Review & Giveaway } CLOSED

THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED AND WINNER HAS BEEN CHOSEN. THANKS TO ALL WHO ENTERED!
Handmade boutique clothing has always fascinated me because of the beautiful, unique designs, and because they are made in the USA!

Today I want to share with you an amazing Etsy shop that I found: Corinna Couture. Corinna is a mother of two who is absolutely obsessed with fabric, designs, sewing and creating... which I am so thankful for! All of her products are amazing! Corinna Couture is loaded with unique skirts, dresses and jumpers. She is also working on creating a boys clothing line, which I, for one, am extremely excited about!


Now, a little about the beautiful patchwork skirt that Corinna has provided for me to give away to one of my lucky readers (pictured below)!

This gorgeous purple patchwork skirt is made with Lila Tuellers "Santorini" fabric. It has an adorable flower pin that is removable, so it can be left pinned to the skirt, put on a shirt, or even on a headband! This is the perfect twirly skirt for your little girl this spring! The size of the skirt is a 4T with a 21" elastic waistband.


One lucky reader will receive this gorgeous skirt by Corinna Couture in size 4T!
