200!!!

So this is my 200th post!! I've been waiting for this post for awhile!! So I have been schemingas to what to do for some of you loyal lurker or commenters out there. I wanted something that wouldn't just be for the locals, and well the next person on the list for a quilt is my new Niece Holly, and we just found out that my Bro. and Sis. in-law are having a girl after 4 boys!! So you see where my priorities lay. Don't you?

So all you lucky people out there get to comment away for a chance to win a sling set! I make slings on the side. I also use slings ALOT. That's my other secret to going in public with 4 kids. Felix is a big fan and I carried Seger in his until he was 25lbs. They are a life Saver and super convenient. They fold up super small and flat to fit in any purse and they open up to act as a blanket if your in a pinch or need a nursing cover. They slip on in seconds and best of all Baby is super comfy!! They ride a little different then these pics once they are older. The winner will get a ful set of instructions. They go hip slinging as they grow and can even be slung around to the back. Felix falls asleep in his everytime. I find it comfy to wear and it distributes the weight well. I've converted many to the hippy/modern way to carry your baby. 




So this is a set for Mom and daughter. Vienna loves to do as I do and so I made her one up for her baby dolls and doesn't she just look so cute!!!! This set here could be yours if you just leave a comment you are entered to win. Nothing fancy just a good ol' give away! The Mom sling is a brown based plaid with a streak of orange and teal and the Daughter sling is champagne with orange/cantaloup and black.



Random commenter will be picked on Monday Aug 31st. Check back to see if you won! If you don't happen to be the lucky ducky then I do make them in various fabrics for  $25 Adult size or $18 kids size. Good Luck!

Oh my gosh that is so cute! I'm sure I have no chance of winning cos I"m first, but I feel honoured anyway.

Great photos - you look amazing (can't believe you have had four kids!) and the slings are adorable!

Your kiddos are so cute and you are looking great for just having Felix. I love slings they are the best, especially for fussy wee ones, but the little sling for your daughter has to be the cutest thing yet. LOVE IT!!!

Lisa said...

Could you wear two if you have twins? A little late for me perhaps (my twins are now in jr. high) but just wondering.

Ashley Fairbanks said...

SOOO cute! I love the daughter sling for dolls! I would have loved to have one of those when I was younger and still played with dolls.

Aaron and Ariane Mardis said...

Yay! I Win!! I am they only comment! But you don't have to enter me in the contest, Because I would like you to make me one! I know it is short notice but If you get it done by the time you parents head down to Janet's cabin around the 11th you can send it with them and give it to my parents! If I can pick a fabric I would like something retro with bright colors! Tell me how I need to pay...you can email me at aamardis@gmail.com

Jill said...

I've been reading your blog on the sly for sometime now and I must say that you never cease to amaze me. I am the same age as you and yet I can't imagine having 4 children and finding time to be so creative. I only hope one day to be able to do half as much as you do.

Cheers,
Jill

Lol, I vote you pick me!! of course everyone says that. They are so cute. I can't wait to see the quilt you make for Holly too.

Nancy said...

I hadn't considered a sling until I read your blog. I'm now convinced that it's easy to use and would love to try it with my baby that we're expecting in October.

Thanks for offering this!

Nancy said...

I was wondering how effective the sling would be until I read your blog. Now I'm convinced that it'll work great. I'm expecting our first baby in October and would love to win one of these. Thanks for offering this!

Barnes Family said...

Hey Liz, your slings are great!! I have a Moby Wrap but I'm finding it takes forever to put on and it's so much fabric... count me in the runnings to win that sling! ;)

Donna said...

Hey Liz! That looks great! Although I don't have a use for a sling, I have a lovely daughter who is expecting her third baby sometime in the next ten days. She will really need one.

esther.beazer said...

oooh i love those baby slings... there the ones that don't tie right? its just one piece! love it! i don't have a baby yet but when i do i think you should gift one to me ;) {hint hint}

Heather said...

I love your slings! I think one would make a perfect gift for my expectant sister.

Congrats on your 200th post!

Hi Liz, you are unbelievable!! Love the pics. I also made one for a child to carry her pup. I have made so many of these slings, yes they are great for giveaways. Summer ones winter ones and in 3 sizes. large so dad can carry too. It is good to see you using them. Very proud of you and your little family. Love Aunt Bunny
I don't need one though

Brooke said...

Thanks and have a lovely week!

I love slings! I will own up to not having any kids yet, but I have wanted to use them ever since I found out about them. So if I don't win, its ok, but I may come back for your services!

Nancy said...

Very cute. If I don't win I will buy one for my baby that will hopefully be here soon. Great price for them. You are very talented by the way.

Shanny said...

I know my 3 yr old would LOVE a sling for her babies and kitties! SO CUTE!

Jackie Russell said...

I wish these were around when my kids were small. They look really comfy. I do have a new granddaughter on the way that this would be great for. Your daughter is adorable!

Lisa said...

Adorable pictures! Vienna does look too cute with her baby and sling. Sign me up...I know a little girl who would just love to be able to carry her baby everywhere she goes!

Sell...Party Of 3 said...

If I could be so lucky. I am 10 weeks pregnant, and my 5 year old daughter is anxiously awaiting becoming a big sister for the first time. I think that we would look adorable with these cute slings...and possibly make her feel a little less left out when the BIG change happens in our house!

Susie said...

You are so talented! I love the little girl one, how cute is that.

Trisha said...

Cute slings. They look wonderful on you both.

Daria - Boutique Cafe said...

Hey Liz, I just tweeted and shared this on Boutique Cafe! Everyone needs a Lizzy Anne Baby Sling :)

XOXO - thank you so much for having us over for pizza last night. We were so tired and hungry getting off the plane, it was awesome to be with you guys for a bit and relax before driving home. Love your family so much!

FeatherBunkle said...

How adorable your little one is! I'd love to try out your sling--our little guy is due in less than 4 weeks and with 3 older sisters (ages 2, 5 and 7) the daughter sling would be sure to get plenty of use! I've used a mei tai in the past but the sling really appeals to me because it's so quick and easy to slide on/off whereas the MT takes some getting used to and getting a fussy baby into one is... shall we say "difficult". :)
Cheers to you for the fabulous giveaway--hope I win! (But then, don't we all?!)

Paige said...

Now that is super cute! I would love it!

JD said...

These are super cute, and look really well made. I love the pattern of the fabric for both, and I would looooovvveee to try out one of your slings. So pick me! ha ha

Lori said...

Ahley Elizabeth said...

SOOOOOO CUTE! when I was little my mom sewed my sister and I dolly slings that matched the one she had! I would love to be entered! great give-away idea

Ma Val said...

Love the slings. I've two expecting sisters so one should be a sling wearer, right? Congrats on your 200th post!

Cheryl Arkison said...

I love my sling, but it is made out of fleece so it went into summer retirement.

Merv said...

So cute...although my daughter is too big I have a few friends that could benifit from a sling like that. not to mention my two year old would like the sling for her babies too...

audreypawdrey said...

I love the slings and hope I am the lucky duck! Due in three weeks and could really use something like this!

The Wynn Family said...

I have always wanted one. I am one of those mom's that watch other moms with them and think that is such a great idea; I should get one, but then somehow it never happens. I hope I win!

Andy and Micah said...

My daughter would love the baby sling to put he dolls in, and I would love love love the baby sling to put my baby in it looks like you would be able to have a free hand which is always need when you are chasing a 3 year old and try to juggle your baby too. They are both so cute.

Kristen said...

You're so cute, the two of you. Love the talent you're just oozing... can I be like you when I grow up?
