Happy New Year, Ladies! Let’s jump right into the cool stuff that’s going on in the blogosphere – brought to you by the Mom Buzz!
Cat from 3 Kids and Us has started a new feature on her blog. It’s called “Sunday Spotlight”. And guess you got the first guest spot? Playdate Picks! :woot: :woot: She did an awesome job introducing the Mom Buzz’s collaboration with 4 other blogs. Just imagine what she can do for you. If you want to be featured, learn how HERE.
So, the other day I happened upon the Boulie Blog. What really caught my attention was Gretchen’s pink post, where she featured a decoupaged and handpainted heart-shaped bauble. Really pretty. Really pink. LOL. At her Etsy shop, ChichiBoulie, she features ” a world of colourful and lively artwork for wee ones and the young at heart.” Gretchen also does customized work.
Next up is My Gypsy Goods. I’ve been dropping on her for months. Her name intrigued me at first, but her Etsy shop has cool finds. For one, I like her Skull Eyeglasses Leash. (Is that what you call them?) I like anything with skulls – I know, dark for the Mom Buzz. I also love her “Pretty Poodle Deluxe Drawstring Cloth Gift Bags“. They are so… retro? Chic? Very cool! They can hold cosmetics, small soaps, herbs, jewelry, pocket mirrors, shop promos and/or treats!
Introducing, Playdate Picks. A collaboration of 5 blogs (soon to be 6). Expect mostly reviews for the coolest products from each of the contributor’s websites. Of course, there will be contest listings. Look out for Contest Sundays where there is a Mr. Linky so everyone can leave their Contest PermaLink. And there is a fun forum and a Mom Blog Directory, which is accepting buttons from Mom Reviewers, Mom Blogs and Boutiques with Products for Moms and their kiddos.
4BabyAndMom is throwing a Fiesta in February, and you are invited! February 1st, 2009, starts a series of reviews of awesome products and stores that are perfect for babies, children and moms!! Sponsors include Leg Huggers, Sidder Bug Creations, The Diaper Clutch (I so need one!), Sand Dune Publishing Co., Bobs and Lolo and more!
Okay, this line got me at My Looneyverse. “Letting the kids dance on the coffee table did not turn them into strippers”. LMAO! Read more Mom Wisdomisms from My Looneyverse and get a good chuckle!
REMEMBER BEING PREGNANT?
Okay, I was reading Pregnancy Power and saw that Nicole is having a “difficult” pregnancy. Right now she is wondering when it starts to get easier.(mwa-ha-ha). We all know every pregnancy is different, but you might want to stop in and give some help and advice. We’re listening, Nicole!
