a gift for you

I wish that I could give every one of you faithful readers a special gift this Christmas season.  To let you know how thankful I am for you.  But honestly, I just have no idea how many of you are actually out there.

Sure, my blog statistics give me some idea of the "reach" of this blog, but honestly, sometimes it feels pretty lonely and pretty quiet around here.  {cue crickets}

And sometimes I get pretty down when I feel like I'm writing to a wall.  {cue violin}

So, to stir things up a little around here, I'm going to give away TWO sets of my handmade bibs.  I've been cleaning and purging around here lately and these bibs just aren't getting the use that they should (we have WAY TOO MANY).  They've each been used just a handful of times and have absolutely no stains or discoloration to them.

If you've been around this blog for awhile, you've seen the tutorial for these bibs.  They were also featured over at A Little Tipsy with Michelle.  They are repurposed from child sized t-shirts and lined with super soft minky.  They wash like a dream and look even cuter on.

The first set is for girls only.  It's full of pinks and teals, frills and rhinestones, and Hello Kitty.


Here's a close up of all the bibs included in this gift set.


 Then let's not forget about the boys!  Here is their set full of plaid, buttons, trouble, and fun!


And the close up.


All you have to do to win one of these sets is to comment below on this blog post telling me which set you'd like to win. 

I'll draw TWO winners on Thursday morning (12-1-11) and announce it here on the blog!  Merry Christmas!

  1. I'd love to win the boy set for my little cousins!

    P.S. I have just recently found your blog and my husband and I can't wait to order some of your reusable bags!

  2. Rebecca: I'd love the GIRL set, even though my granddaughters are getting older. I was with them this past weekend, and put one of the bibs on them that I had previously ordered. My four-year-old said, "Gramma, I'm a big girl, I don't need one." and I replied, "Yes, you are, but let's protect your pretty dress, and this one is really soft." She puts it on, and say, "Gramma, it IS soft. I like it." :)

    btw.... you give us a gift every time you post a blog. You give of yourself, and we love you for it.

  4. I would LOVE to win the girl set! My little baby girl is just 4 months and has started drooling a LOT more these days (we sometimes joke and call her Julia-droolia") so it would be awesome to have some cute/fashionable bibs to protect her clothing-- and also to use as she starts eating solids soon!

    And Rebecca, we ARE out here reading your blog! I can't speak for the others, but often I read your blog on my phone or through my blog reader in the few spare moments I have between diaper changes & feedings with the baby, or trying to do stuff around the house, and I don't always have the time I would like to comment on blogs-- but I enjoy what you have to say, and I love your creativity (and your bags are pretty gosh darn cute too!) Just sayin...

  6. I am absolutely in love with the girl set. BUT. My girls are long past bib stage. Little man, however, could use some new ones!! So.. BOY set it is.

  7. Oh, I love both! But since our youngest two are girls I'd choose the girly set. Thanks!

    I'm with Courtney! I'd love the boy set (our sons are just a few months apart). I've saved all the neutral ones from my daughter for him to use, and he has a few generic "boy" bibs, but I would love for him to have some cool, stylish ones! And his birthday is coming up! They are super cute!

  11. Neither for me yet (bump 3 is still 'team yellow!) but I just wanted to say Im so sorry that you feel like you are writing to a brick wall... I read your blog all the time and am hoping to order one of your diaper bags for the new bubba next year and I love everything you say and do on here...I promise you that I will try that bit harder to let you know how much your blog is appreciated, even here in deepest, darkest rural France! :-)

  12. Hey there! I would love the boy set, as I am a momma of two of them! And BTW, your blog does NOT go unnoticed, nor do you! All of your items are gorgeous and you can tell that lots of love goes in to each one! Thanks for using your God-given talents to bless others! Keep it up!

  19. Your blog is the only one I subscribe to... I love what you are doing and the spirit in which you do it!

    I'd love to have the girl set... It's been a while since I've had small children around my home, but I'm a new great aunt and my daughter will soon be having her own little princess. It would be nice to have these for when they come over to visit.

    Keep doing what you are doing... you bless many!

  26. Oh my goodness. I'd love to win a set, and I don't know yet of this baby is a boy or girl (we'll know next Tuesday.) I'd like to say GIRL, but I guess BOY is safe too, since I still have a little guy who could use them. :)

  27. I read your blog daily!! I also enjoy your blog daily! I will say that I was wondering if you ever read our responses though. I have left you two comments that I thought you would have responded to and never heard back. Never the less, I still follow you in hopes of being able to order a bag of yours one day.

  28. You are so right, Paula. There have been quite a few comments that I've read that warmed my heart and brought a smile to my face that I selfishly did not respond to. Please forgive me? In fact, when I think of my faithful commenters... "Paula" is the first one that comes to my mind. While I don't know you, you have encouraged me over and over again. I never thought how someone must feel when I don't respond. How utterly selfish of me. Email me at betterlifebags@gmail.com - I'd like to give you a gift.

  31. Both of my kids are much too old for bibs - they're teenagers now, but I'd love to win either set for some of the moms of the new babies at our church. We have had 17 over the past year - one set of twins and one set of quads.

    I love reading your blog and pray for you and your family!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Both are awesome :) Boy I think - because I hope to have a boy someday!

  33. I really love the boy set! Because you can ALWAYS find so cute stuff for girls but rarely do you find cute stuff for boys! And I have a new nephew who will arrive soon!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I loved your bib tutorial you did awhile back and have wanted to make some myself...but no sewing machine. :( One of these days hopefully! And although I do love both sets, my just-turned-4 year old boy no longer needs them as compared to his little sister...so the girl set definitely!

  38. I'd love to win the boy set, they're so handsome! We're using a TON of bibs each day right now, and we're always running low on clean ones!

  39. These bibs are adorable! Would love to win either, since we don't know the gender of our upcoming arrival in the spring!
