Pink Bowtique - Handmade Boutique Upscale Baby Bows, Toddler Bows, Girls Bows and Hair Bow Instructions

Pink Bowtique

Over the past two years, Makenna has acquired quite a collection of bows and clips. We probably own every color and theme available. After many disappointing purchases of mass produced bows, we switched to boutique handcrafted bows. We appreciate well constructed bows, created with high quality materials and handcrafted to perfection.

We love the Princess Tiara ruffle bows sent to us by Pink Bowtique. The fluffy pink satin ruffle bow is lined with pink ribbon printed with "Princess" and tiaras. Once they were slipped into her hair, she pranced around saying, "I'm a Princess!". We also received the most adorable bow accented with a little fuzzy handbag embellishment in the center. Ribbons are sealed to prevent fraying, bows are perfectly folded and fluffy, and are securely attached to the concealed clip. I am extremely impressed at the quality craftsmanship and attention to detail that is put into each Pink Bowtique bow.

The Pink Bowtique offers a wonderful selection of various bows and headbands for babies, toddlers, and girls. With a variety of color choices, styles, and sizes, you're sure to find the perfect one to add to your collection. The girl and toddler bows are available in three sizes and your choice of barrette or alligator pinch clip. In addition to their fabulous hair accessories, you'll find stylish shopping cart covers, wipes cases, and more. They are also nice enough to share their trade secrets of bow-making by offering an easy to use CD that includes details instructions and images.

Mom 4 Life - Unique Mom Created Baby, Toddler, Mommy, and Maternity Products, Baby Shower Gifts

Mom 4 Life

It's extremely rewarding promoting mom owned businesses and at the same time putting a smile on my two-year-old's face. Mom 4 Life, owned by mommy of two Heather Ledeboer, is an online boutique that offers fabulous and unique products invented by moms, for moms. As a mom of four, I immediately appreciated the unique selection of products that make our life as a mom easier.

Mom 4 Life sent us a children's FourPeas Kid's Backpack for review and we couldn't be more pleased. With three big sisters that attend school, Makenna is biting at the bit to be just like them. Her eyes lit up the second she saw it, and immediately filled it up with goodies, and was off to school (pretend of course). Her new backpack fit her perfectly and the adjustable straps allow it to grow with her. The vibrant colored backpack is created from durable green fabric with pink flowers scattered about. With two generous pockets, she was able to fill it to her heart's content. Mom 4 Life offers a wide selection of fabulous colors and designs, so you're sure to find the perfect one to fit your child's personality. Your child can fill it up with their favorite goodies to keep them busy while traveling, visits to Grandma's, waiting rooms, and more.

Mom 4 Life gives back to the community by donating 10% of the profits from each sale to the Pregnancy Counseling Center in San Bernardino, California, helping them continue to provide free support to all women who walk through their doors.

Mom 4 Life is dedicated to offering high quality products that are unique, while providing excellent customer service, including free gift wrap, gift registry, bi-weekly newsletters, and helpful articles.

Karen Cole Paper - Hand Illustrated Blank Whimsical and Unique Birthday Invitations, Birth Announcements, Baby Showers and Weddings

Karen Cole Paper
Over the last seventeen years, I've thrown at least thirty children's birthday parties, ten baby showers, and had four births to announce. So, I've seen my share of invitations and announcements. I'm always on the lookout for unique invitations and announcements that will make a lasting impression.

Karen Cole Paper offers a fabulous collection of hand-illustrated whimsical designs that your recipients will adore. We received a selection of samples and each one is brought to life with vibrant and charming illustrations created by artist Karen Bullard.
There wasn't a single one I didn't love. Each illustration is professionally printed on heavy-weight bright-white card stock and left blank to fill in all the details. And, for those of us not "printer savvy", we can simply drop by our local printer and let them do the work for us. I love the idea of having these fabulous cards on hand and ready to print for our next event. Cards are affordably priced and each set of ten comes in a one-piece acrylic box and includes envelopes.
There are designs for a variety of occasions including birthdays, birth announcements, weddings, and even that occasional cocktail party. Karen's designs have been featured in various publications and can be found in numerous boutiques throughout the country. She is continually adding new illustrations to keep her collection fresh and fun.

Mini Me Baby Gear - Embroidered Wet Bags, Christening Gifts, Burp Cloths, and Onesies

Mini Me Baby Gear
Handmade by me...treasured by you.

To the parents who choose cloth over disposable, I salute you. When I had twins, I really did give it all I had, but it just wasn't for me. So what on earth would I do with a wet bag?
  • Store wet clothing after a day at the beach or pool.
  • Place wet and muddy shoes inside to protect your car and other belongings.
  • Store wipes while on the go.
  • Perfect for storing toiletries while traveling, such as shampoos.
  • It's a boo boo bag! Just add ice to a ziploc and pop it in.
  • Store soiled bibs and clothing while on the go. Perfect for those potty-training accidents.
  • Great for packing up a lunch, drinks, or snacks for picnics or camping.
  • And, last but not least, store dirty cloth or disposable diapers while on the go.

Whew, that's a lot of uses. The possibilities are endless. Even better, they're washable and reusable. They are constructed with two layers sewn separately and finished with a coordinating
zipper to keep the smells inside the bag. The liner is a waterproof fabric called Baby Dry and the outer layer is your choice several fun and fashionable prints. If you're not familiar with Baby Dry, it's a flexible waterproof fabric that has a soft touch, unlike clear stiff vinyl. Embroidery is FREE, and they offer a wonderful selection of thread colors to choose from. Mini Me Baby Gear sent us the large cotton candy dots bag with my name embroidered in pink. I put it to the test right away and am thrilled with the results!

Mini Me Baby Gear's entire collection of products are handmade by owner and founder Jaimie Bird. She is dedicated to keeping prices low while maintaining high quality, providing excellent customer service, and sending items out quickly.

Jaimie gives back to the community by putting 10% of every sale from her website towards making dress up robes for long term pediatric patients at DeVos Children's hospital.
