Swinger Sunday - "Oh Noes!!"

Welcome this weeks Swinger, @fentonslee! 

In raising Snapdragon, I have done a lot of "greening" of our daily routine.  My goal is to spend less, give him less exposure to nasty grosstastic chemicals, keep his carbon footprint as small as his little foot, and set a good example.
So we breastfeed. We use cloth diapers.  We use cloth wipes. We hang dry when it's sunny, and sometimes when it's not.
How many trees have been clear cut for his baby? I thought none.
But he has a runny nose.
An icky gicky squicky runny nose.
A sad bad and definitely not rad runny nose.
And what am I to do? Wipe it of course.
Well, then I kissed and loved and hugged on him too much. Now I have a runny nose.  A yucky mucky unlucky runny nose.
Now, if you breastfeed, I'm sure you're familiar with being pinned beneath a nursing baby and needing to blow your nose. Well, I couldn't reach any tissues or even a friendly roll of toilet paper. But I could reach the cloth wipes, and in a moment of desperation, I used one to wipe my nose.
News flash. It worked. It worked, didn't hurt, and since then has washed up just lovely.
So the runny nose has a new thought running through my head.
Bring back the hanky.
Oh, and I'm a little embarassed that we got sidetracked with the whole disposable thing to start with.
So we're going to do this, and if you think "ew, cloth nose wipes, that's gross..."
No, "it'snot"...

Thanks so much doll for your post! I have SOO been there before too :) Hence, the reason Booger Bashers were born... Ill have to send you some... that way, your not accidentally wiping boogers with poo, lol cuz that would be just yucky. ;)

#4) ANORIGINALJEWELRY: This really might be my new favorite etsy item... I get SO overwhelmed when I look for jewelry on etsy so I usually just DONT. There is too much and its all the same. But this little skull jumped right out at me and screamed... *HEY! YOU LOVE ME* and it was right ;)

#5) RockyTheZombie: My girl Rocky was part 2 in the lime black decision... and her green is a little dark, but she more than deserves a spot in the favorites list today :) If I had to could... I would say I have like...... 8 Rocky shirts for the boys? And i have 4 paintings up in the play room... yeah... i'm probably her biggest fan... I think in 5 years all her shirts will be screen printed and she will be a million year... it could happen. Her stuff is THAT great.

#6) StrawberryCremeKat: While fumbling through Rockys shop... I ran across another store that featured this SUPER rad necklace... I just had to add it in. I LOVE the squishy fake grapes... makes me think of my great grandma... but in a really cool, high fashion, pinup-y kinda way, lol

"Past and Future
Miracle Diapers was founded in Oregon in January of 2005 to fill a need. There were many families who wanted to cloth diaper their children for health, economical, and environmental reasons but could not due to financial restrictions. Due to the overwhelming response, Miracle Diapers decided to to open two more chapters by the end of that year. Now, under new management, Miracle Diapers is now in our fourth year of service and looks forward to expanding even further.

Our goal is to someday have representatives all over the United States. Through this we hope to not only be able to serve thousands of families in need, but to be able to educate the public on today’s cloth diapers and therefore helping cloth become more mainstream."

This WEEK! A RockerByeBaby Review!

I feel giving today...
This week... Free RockerByeBaby!

Im giving away a free set of Japanese Kawaii Booger Bashers!!
They are awesome black with pink and turquoise skull and crossbones on it.
Totally unisex so snatch them up!


The listing info :)
So, the boys have a cold...
its horrific... ill spare you the green crusty/slimy details :) haha
But the point here is... their little tiny noses get RAW using tissues...
not to mention were just trashing the environment using a kleenex once and tossing it...

But, I assure you people... there IS a better way...
These have been tested this week...
and I call them Booger Bashers...
known to others here on etsy as Swipers...
They are little mini tissues... about 4 x 6.5 inches...
with JAPANESE IMPORT KAWAII cotton on one side...
and soft and snuggly on the other...
Wipe with whatever side you choose...
Cotton is still plenty soft... or the other side works just as well...
Same idea as a handkerchief... use it... use it... use it... GOO! then WASH IT!!!
No special rules... wash... dry...
Then go off on your hunt for more Boogers that need Bashing.
You get 2 in a pack... now thats alot of BOOGIES!

Leave me a comment with your favorite new stuff in the shop!
So there ya have it! Review will run until Monday!
2 ways to get extra entries!!
*Buy anything from her and leave us an extra comment telling which awesome bunch of things you bought...
(Her stuff is SOOOO affordable, I really hope to hear about some purchases this week!!!)
