This is SillySockMonkey's first time participating in the baby shower and is excited about hearing from "her" mom. The lucky mom matched with SillySockMonkeys will be choosing her gift from the many wonderful listing in her shop. I am happy to let the mom choose something she likes from my shop.
Ilia's advice to new moms is to "not worry about the housework, do what you can and enjoy this special time while your baby is so tiny!" She encourages moms to take lots of pictures and notes to stick into your baby book in case you don't have time to write everything in right away. She reminds us fellow moms that "when [our] child is big [we] will look at those pictures and all the good memories will come rushing back."
SillySockMonkeys will be offering a 20% discount to blog readers, be sure to enter the discount code: ETSY BABY SHOWER.
Maria from RetroRugrats joined Etsy in October 2007. She is inspired by bright, colorful fabrics and loves retro-inspired creations, vintage patterns and styles with modern day fabrics. "Fun accessories to make childhood fun!" The crayon roll is her top selling product, and since they come personalized it makes them extra special.
This is RetroRugrats' first time participating in the Etsy Baby Shower. The lucky mom paired with RetroRugrats will be receiving a kimono shirt with the baby's initial and personalized bib.
Maria's advice to new moms is to put their baby to bed at bedtime despite protests at a young age. She adds that as they grow older, "you'll be glad you did." All 3 of her children go to bed at bedtime without any persuasion and it makes bedtime so much easier.
