TotRags Messy Child Photo Contest! - ENTRY IS CLOSED

TotRags Bibs have gone through extensive testing and a few re-designs all with the focus of keeping children clean, easily. So in the spirit of all the Holiday Eating we are all doing I think it would be really fun to host a "My Messy Child" Photo Contest!

Details on entering are below. I will choose 5 finalists from the entries and then your votes will determine the winner which will be announced on Thursday December 31st.

The WINNER'S PRIZE: Two TotRags Full Coverage Bibs - custom made for your (or your special someone's) little one.

EVERYONE who enters the contest will receive a $5.00 Gift Certificate to use in the shop on an item of their choice!

Let's face it - keeping kids clean is not easy. Our mischevious little munchkins get dirty every time we turn our backs. And what is the first thing you do when you see an super messy child? You grab your camera! So let's have some fun and share those special "Look what precious has done...again" moments!

Between now and December 25th, do one of the following:
1. If you are a blogger, in a new post share this contest with your readers - be sure to upload a "messy" picture of your little one to your post. Enter your name and direct post url in the form below so I know you are entering and so other entrants can see your picture. Send me an email with the subject "Messy Blogger" so I can contact you if you are the winner. totrags [at] gmail [dot] com

2. If your blog is private or if you are not a blogger, email your picture to totrags [at] gmail [dot] com. In the subject of the message, type "Messy". Please re-size your picture down to a 5x7 or smaller.


CONTEST RULES (and advice)
1. Entry Dates: December 8th through December 25th.
2. Your URL must link directly to the post, not to the most recent page of your blog. In order to find the direct link, publish your post then go to your blog and click on the title of the post. Copy the URL that is now in your address bar.
3. Your photo must be of a family member or close friend - no WorldWideWeb shared photos please. Age of photo does not matter...1945...1987...2009, makes no difference.
4. You may enter up to three pictures into the contest, but each picture must be of a different child.
5. Previous TotRags Giveaway or Contest winners are not eligible - but feel free to enter anyway just for fun!
Any rule breakers will be disqualified and their links deactivated.

I will choose and announce the 5 finalists the morning of December 26th and you will have until December 30th to vote. Be sure to tell your friends and family about the contest so they can be ready to vote for you!   Blogs, Facebook, Twitter, etc are great ways to get the word out.

A vintage find...

As we drove past this lovely gem hanging on a rack full of basic boring clothing at a sweet little old lady's yardsale. I screamed, "Stop the truck... I have to see that dress!" Ten minutes later I was sitting in the passenger seat running my fingers over it's ornate embroidery and adoring it's lovely design. I could not wait to put it on and was dreaming of the next event I could wear it to. My anxiety grew with each stop light until we reached our home.

I ran inside and tried it on. "Adorable. Simply romantic! Honey, zip it up, zip it up!"

My rib cage and bust did not share the same enthusiam.

boo hoo.

New Giving Back Sponsoreeeee

We began sponsoring a new race participant at the beginning of July. We have all been touched by breast cancer, whether a Mother, Daughter, Sister, or Friend. So we have chosen to sponsor Kristen Alexander of Big Piney, WY as she has pledged to raise over $2000 for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure foundation and participate in the 3 day walk in Washington DC October 9 - 11th.

Will you join us in support of breast cancer research? A TotRags purchase not only gets you a wonderful item, but helps to support those who are doing the research that saves the lives of those women we love!

$1.00 from each TotRags item purchased between July 1st and September 30th will be donated.

Our Giving Back Update

In June we traveled to Seattle to participate in the Seattle Rock N Roll 1/2 Marathon with our "Giving Back" Sponsoreeeeeee Jason. In March I posted that we would be donating $1.00 from each TotRags purchase to support cancer research and treatment. I love the thrill of a good race, especially those that support good causes! So my sweet husband and his old friend from high school (who is a cancer survivor) ran, and ran, and get the picture? 13.1 miles to be exact. And they completed their race 10 minutes under their goal time of 2 hours. It was quite a site to see - all those runners - they are all so amazing and we are honored to be able to help support!

Then only a month later, we joined Jason on a grueling hike near Jackson Hole WY. Yes - those are the Grand Tetons in the background. As you can see, treatment has not slowed him down a bit. It is our hope that others will be as successful as Jason. By purchasing TotRags you can be a part of the cure(s) too!

New designs in the Shop

Nursing Cover-Ups NOW AVAILABLE!

I am now offering Nursing Cover-Ups in the shop. These are so stylish, functional, and essential for every nursing mom. Never worry about being indecent in public again!

The rigid neckline naturally stands out just far enough to allow air circulation for baby and visibility for mom, but not for others.

There is a terry cloth pouch in the lower left corner that is perfect for discretely storing nursing pads, ointment, or a pacifier.

The plastic buckle on the neckstrap makes it easy to adjust the length of the strap with one hand and the material does not pinch or pucker like with D rings...yet the buckle holds it securely in place.

Lightweight and breathable so Mom and Baby do not get hot during feeding time.

Easy to fold up and store in the diaper bag or a purse and of course easy to clean - machine wash/dry!

Custom orders are available - to see the in stock materials go to and click on Custom Orders.

Materials In-Stock & Custom Ordering

I can't seem to get rid of the white space between this paragraph and the next. I'm a seamstress, not an HTML guru. So I guess enjoy it. They say white space is a powerful tool.

I've made things a bit easier around here. There are two new links on the site where you can see the materials I have In-Stock at any given time. This is great for custom ordering!

Go here: Click Here and then click on the two material links in the center of the page under the header "To Place a Custom Order".

Then just email or convo me on Etsy with your wishes and I'll set up a RESERVE listing for you. Your item will typically ship within 3 business days after payment received.

Thanks for all of your support!

(If you've purchased an item or have been one of the lucky GIVEAWAY winners and have not yet sent me your feedback either via email or one Etsy, please do so. I LIKE IT, I LOVE IT, I WANT SOME MORE OF IT.)

New DipeWipe clutches AVAILABLE!

I swear they just keep getting cuter with every new one I sew.
These will be in the shop by the end of the week and are available for custom orders!
