Giveaway #8: Small Threads

One of my favorite mama's - Mandy... is the human behind the cutest clothes on the web, Small Threads.

Two of my favorite pieces of clothing were made by Mandy's hands... They get worn ALL THE TIME... And if you stop by her shop, you will even see me modeling my FAVORITE FAVORITE hoodie... The "Bony Mama". The teeny little details are awe flawless. How Mandy has the patience to hand cute all those little pieces... and hand stitch them all on is beyond me. The heart is my favorite, and has perfectly placed little stitches all the way around... The details are what makes Small Threads so special and unique. Even if you ordered 100 Bony Mama hoodies, each one would be just a little different. Another of my favorite Small Threads items are her Small Skivvies. They are easily the CUTEST thing you could ever put on little boy bums. Ive made a tradition the last few years of getting them Small Skivvies for their stockings every Christmas, and they're always a hit. This year they got the Rock Hand & The Skull and crossbones. Its a strange feeling when you are actually sad when your kids grow out of their underwear... I mean, their just underwear... but I can assure you, I was sad when I had to pull out the first "too small" pair from their drawers. Then again, it was just an excuse to get some more ;)
You can even get them for big boys too. One year I had a custom pair made for hubby... The heart and banner style with TG (my nickname) sewn in. He loved them :) Since then I have a nice little stash set aside for Rozzlyn, have given Small Threads gifts, and added to our own collection. No matter what your style is, there is a Small Threads design for you :) Don't have kids? No worries, she does adult sizes and pet clothes too!! Mermaids, Skulls, Cake, and of course... what kind of shop would it be without a Octopus with a Mustache!?!? Don't worry... she has those too :) But of all the cute designs... our favorite has to be the Love mom/dad Heart t-shirts and they're perfect for the upcoming Valentines Day holiday :) But it doesn'st stop there. Not only can you customize that design (like I did with the underwear) Mandy has come up with a new one that says ROCK inside... for all of those baby rock stars that love to rock :)
This brand new onesie design is headed to Mrs. Ashley for her shower gift. Isn't it the cutest thing ever!? Im totally jealous. But you don't have to be... why? Because Mandy says, "i will make a custom short sleeve tee or onesie for the winner. Any size 3 months thru 6". This way, no one is left out, and everyone can find something they love that fits their little one...

ALSO - Mandy has so generously offered a 15% discount to all of our readers. Code: RBBSHOWER when checking out. And be sure to look at her "sale" section for ready to ship goodies at a killer price already!

GIveaway #7: Sweet Monkey Tots

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKK!! This is me squealing :) One of my new favorite shops is Sweet Monkey Tots and I am SO SO SO excited she decided to join in on this baby shower giveaway week with us!

A little while back I was on the hunt for a super cool travel wipes case to match my awesome Stellar Cheri diaper bag. I wasn't having any luck finding anything that matched, or even came close to coordinating... right up until I came across Sweet Monkey Tots... and its pretty easy to say I fell in love. She was so sweet and quick to respond... offered to use any custom fabric out there (like the one that MATCHED my diaper bag... ) and we designed it exactly how I wanted it to be. Down to the font on the monogramming... and the trim.

In the end I was so beyond thrilled with the final result. When it came time to put her nursery together, we designed another custom wipes case, but this time the nursery tub style to match her room. We picked a super cute Pink, Black & white damask print that I actually have mixed into her bedding... and the fun little pompom trim you see above. It turned out adorable and I couldn't possibly be happier with the quality & customer service that Stephanie provides. Also, the packing is over the top professional. But you will just have to order and see for yourself :) She has some ready to ship items for the wipes cases... but LOADS of custom listings and options... so I know she will help you find exactly what you need :) If you aren't in the market for a wipes case, you should still check out her shop. She has some great gift options like hooded towels, pacifier clips, burp rags, and the cutest bibs ever!

All of her adorable monogramming makes me want my own machine! Ahhh, I can dream :) "Sweet Monkey Tots is your one stop shop for handmade essentials for special tots! I strive to make my items boutique chic with a touch of monkey sweetness! Come on in and browse for a while. I am sure you will find something for the special tot in your life!"

Now that you see my obvious love for Sweet Monkey Tots... I suppose I should show you the SUPER CUTE case she made for Ashley's nursery :) Its an awesome fabric from the Joel Dewberry collection. In black, granite, and yellows.  Using a pewter colored GIMP (trim). It turned out beautiful.
And lucky you... one winner will receive the custom wipes case of their choice. Valued at $25.95...

My custom Hot Mama Gown...

OMG OMG OMG - Love. For years now - I have daydreamed about having my own awesome custom Hot Mama Gown... as soon as I got pregnant I immediately contacted the mama behind the magic and we worked out a plan to get it rolling... Deidrea is super mom in my eyes... juggling her business, family, interviews, TV spots like Shark Tank... whatever she does, she rocks it... and when it came to my custom gown... *maybe Im biased* but its easily the coolest one she has ever made :)
 I can't even begin to describe the excitement of the doorbell ringing and getting handed this box by Mr. UPS man... I swear my heart skipped a beat as soon as I realized what it was... I tore the box opened... drooled over the amazing packaging... and ripped open the sparkly hot pink tissue to find this <------- purely... awesomely... punky perfection... and in the perfect print... why? Because Ms. Rozzlyn has a matching blanket, onesie, and pacifier clip that I made her in this print... so of course we will be perfectly coordinating, and I can't be more excited about it...
Each Hot Mama Gown has some truly amazing features:

  • Hospital / Birthing Center friendly with short sleeves and a full coverage snap-open back
  • Two ribbon-tied panels allow for quick and easy access for discreet nursing
Plenty of room for a growing belly... and perfectly comfy & cozy for both before & after pregnancy. Saying I am excited to show it off in the delivery room is a total understatement... so be sure to check back soon, as of COURSE I will have to take a bajillion pictures actually wearing it :)
Also - if you're interested in your own custom Hot Mama Gown - all the info is here :)
"The custom order process goes a little something like this: Send us an email Sales@HotMamaGowns.com and tell us all about your idea. We’ll then discuss the final design and try our best to meet all your requests!"

Spoiled baby girl... or mama? Whichever

I'm sure you're not surprised when I say that this baby girl, Rozzlyn... is already totally spoiled. She has a so many outfits... I think Ill be hoping for poo-splosions just for an excuse to change her... She got a new crib & changing table, because well.. the old one has scratches on it ;) And all the high tech gadgetry we could ever need... like a MamaRoo & a fancy schmancy video monitor... but of all this awesomeness... I am so excited about my StellarCheri diaper bag... and my Sweet Monkey Tots wipes case!!! If you're a fan of us on Facebook... then its pretty likely you already saw me ranting about its awesomeness... but COME ON!!!! Its amazing... This is a rare and expensive Japanese fabric... and when I found it, I about had a heart attack. Back when I made the boy's quilts... I used this same print but in black as some of the squares... and some matching wall art. And now i have PINK! So I bought up as much as I could afford so I can put some into her bedding too... and of course, a matching wall art... and who knows what else...  all I know is I am so amazingly thrilled so far with both of these companies and I don't even have them in my hands yet! I knew Cheri would kick out an amazing product... we have been working together for awhile now... and I have been a customer for even longer...
But like most people, I sometimes get nervous when trying new shops... ya never know when they will just blow your mind with awesomeness or let ya down... but I gotta say, my experience with nothing but AMAZING. Her products are worth EVERY penny. From the very beginning, her communication was prompt and she was SO SO helpful while I searched for the right print and combination... She has kept it constant contact sending preview files of fonts, letting me know the status of the order... and a sneak peek of the case before she emailed saying she shipped it off. I have been absolutely thrilled and I highly recommend shopping with either one of both of course. Both of these awesome companies take custom orders... and both of them make it super simple to put together the perfect set... they also have many fabrics to choose from if you don't have anything specific in mind... so PLEASE take a minute to stop by their etsy shops... Stellar Cheri is here... though remember, the style of bag you see above is the exclusive StellarCheri for RockerByeBaby design... and can only be found in our shop :) But still go check out all her other awesome goodies... and then Sweet Monkey Tots... Be sure to tell them RockerByeBaby sent ya - and if you order, come back and tell us what you got!
