Baby Blogging Bash! Giveaway #8! HelloPrettyBird!

Hello Pretty Bird... You are a pretty bird aren't you... Pretty Bird.... Pretty Bird...........

Readers, do you have a spare $5 laying around? Because if so, i know how you should spend it... Amanda over at Hello Pretty Bird on Etsy makes the CUTEST burp rags around... (well, tied with mine of course, lol) I dunno HOW she does it... but she hand dyes the BRIGHTEST colors on her burps. Shes amazing... now I can say this because i have tried... and failed... 3 hours... 3 rinse cycles... black hands... and a messy kitchen later, i gave up... and now I pay Amanda to dye them for me, lol Its MUCH more fun for me this way ;) So I make the punky ones, and she does ALLLLLLLLLLLL the rest... she has some of the most fun & cutesy tutesy prints... and at just $5 a pop they are affordable on any budget. (for comparison... a plain white Gerber burp rag costs $1.40... BORING! totally worth the extra $3.60...)
Check out some of my favorites :)
