The wide border of terry allowed me to really secure the pad onto the mop. I was able to mop without having to stop and stuff it back in at all!

These napkins are 100% mom tested! We use ours every day as lunchbox napkins or snack time place mats. Ideal for lunches on the go, especially picnics at the playground. Napkins are double sided, making them extra durable. Top stitching ensures that edges stay flat – no ironing required! Cotton fabric has been pre-washed and becomes softer and softer with every use and washing. Set of three: one for lunchbox or table, one for the cupboard and one in the wash. Napkins measure 12 x 12″ square. You will feel good about using these adorable napkins over and over again. I hope you like them as much as we do! Here’s how to enter: 1. Comment on this post.

Thank you to spotgirl for providing the napkins for the giveaway!
Edit August 2010: We are still using these napkins daily and love them!!
>I have no idea if anyone has stuck with me through this stomach virus, if you have, bless you. Round 2 1/2 is almost over I hope. I think it’s thoroughly unfair that mothers aren’t immune to these illnesses!
If you are still reading (I have over half a dozen posts in the works!), I have a giveaway for you.
Why should only babies have the comfort, dryness and leak protection of the best selling FuzziBunz diaper? Now moms can have the same dry, super absorbent and flawless comfort that they have for their babies in a reusable menstrual pad! Put some “Comfort” into an uncomfortable time with the easy to wash, stain resistant, and leak proof Comfort Pads only from FuzziBunz Diapers.
Materials: 100% micro fleece (top layer)
100% polyester laminated (waterproof bottom layer),
85% polyester 15% polyamide (inner layers)
Size: 6″ L x 6.75″ W (15cm L x 17cm W)
8″ L x 7.25″ W (20cm L x 18cm W)
10″ L x 7.25″ W (25cm L x 18cm W)
These are obviously sealed, unused and unopened. Sorry for the rotten photos, stuff wrapped in plastic is a beeyotch to photograph.
Here’s how to enter:
First entry: Leave a comment stating the one item you’d most like to see me review. It doesn’t have to necessarily be diaper related, just any “natural” item that you’re interested in, would like to try or would like to know more about.
Second entry: Write your own blog post, or post in an appropriate group (no spamming!) about my giveaway and link to my post. Comment with a link to your post for your entry.
Third entry: Follow my blog. Comment stating you are a follower.
Fourth Entry: Become a Facebook Fan of Fitteds and pockets and snappis, oh my! Comment stating you are a fan to get your entry.
I will accept entries until Friday, March 19th at 7 PM, EST.
Please make sure I have a way to reach you, either through your public profile, your own blog, or by posting your email address.
Allow me up to one week to ship your loot to you after confirming your address.
>I’ve been wanting to switch to cloth napkins for a while, but I haven’t been able to find quite what I’m looking for, nor have I been ready to commit to the initial cost. I’ve also learned about unpapertowels, and I’ve found some really clever containers for them. That is definitely something I want to do when I have the funds.
Back to the point of this post! My daughter started a new preschool. It’s 2 days a week, and she eats lunch there. Her new school is very environmentally conscious. In fact, the building constructed last year is registered with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) for certification under the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program.
Needless to say, I’d be ashamed to send a paper napkin and ziploc bag in her lunch box every day! We already have a reusable sandwich container, but I wanted cloth napkins and reusable snack bags too. Enter etsy. I asked each seller if I could use her photos here on my blog and each agreed. I am trying to learn about photography, but I’m still terrible at it!
I purchased a set of cloth napkins from MagicalMemories
and a pink snack pouch from cottontopquilts (I have to note that shipping charges were extremely reasonable, but this seller still refunded me 60 cents when shipping costs were less. I didn’t expect this for many reasons, but it was a nice surprise. The only time I’m annoyed about shipping is when I’m charged MORE than enough to ship something in a box via priority mail, but I get it after 3 weeks, in an envelope, smushed, with 2 stamps on it!)
They’re the perfect size for a lunch box!
I also got the Tinkerbell bag. She looks a little, uh, confused in the first pic because the bag is creased right through her face.
I’ve already started adding items to my etsy “favorites.” I’d love to have some larger bags with a bottom gusset to pack sandwiches in. I’ve found quite a few adorable prints, but I’m not sure if I should go for a velcro closure, or the traditional fold-over “sandwich bag” closure.
Edit August 2010: The napkins held up great, as did the pink bag from cottontopquilts. However, the Tinkerbell bag from smartsnacbags didn’t fare as well. We used the pink one 2x/week for 6 months with no problem. The tinkerbell bag was used less often, maybe twice per month, if that. It didn’t even last 6 months before the lining fell apart, and I received to response from the seller when I contacted her about it.
