Baby Blogging Bash! Giveaway #8! HelloPrettyBird!

Hello Pretty Bird... You are a pretty bird aren't you... Pretty Bird.... Pretty Bird...........

Readers, do you have a spare $5 laying around? Because if so, i know how you should spend it... Amanda over at Hello Pretty Bird on Etsy makes the CUTEST burp rags around... (well, tied with mine of course, lol) I dunno HOW she does it... but she hand dyes the BRIGHTEST colors on her burps. Shes amazing... now I can say this because i have tried... and failed... 3 hours... 3 rinse cycles... black hands... and a messy kitchen later, i gave up... and now I pay Amanda to dye them for me, lol Its MUCH more fun for me this way ;) So I make the punky ones, and she does ALLLLLLLLLLLL the rest... she has some of the most fun & cutesy tutesy prints... and at just $5 a pop they are affordable on any budget. (for comparison... a plain white Gerber burp rag costs $1.40... BORING! totally worth the extra $3.60...)
Check out some of my favorites :)
Rainbow of peace hand-dyed deep blue burp cloth
for the hippie baby in your life...

Ice Cream sweets hand-dyed pink burp cloth
If you dont see one that matches your burpie I bet if you ask REALLY nicely she will make you one... but never fear... cuz in the mean time, she has sent ONE matching set for a lucky winner... Aymee got an adorable girlie one too! Wanna see your prize?
Dots and Swirls hand dyed grey burp cloth
This burp rag above, and a matching Newborn size onesie (with the heart shaped applique) This set is a $20 value... and a lucky snag for the winning mama (&baby)...
