Aloha Friday #3

August 28, 2009





Aloha everyone! It’s Friday again which means that over at An Island Life it is time for Aloha Friday. In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So on Fridays we take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, she asks a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. Then everyone else asks a simple question of their own blog for others to answer. 


Here is my question:


What made you start blogging?


My answer:
I initially started to blog as an outlet on my crazy life, then I noticed that a few friends of mine were doing giveaways and started to enter, then it became an addiction to enter, then i decided to try my hand at giveaways and starting putting myself out there and now I am doing all of the above lol.


I look forward to reading more of your questions and be sure to go to An Island Life to link up and answer her question.

A Small Wish

August 27, 2009

While i was surfing around Etsy and emailing shops asking if they would like to participate in my Back 2 Blogging Bash I came upon this store called Small Wish.  I emailed her and asked her if i could do a review of the slings she makes because i fell in love with an absolutely gorgeous one called Blue and Brown Tree.  Then i continued to surf further and found a cute matching burp cloth AND a matching diaper clutch.

So i emailed her in hopes I could review the sling and i would purchase the other items later.  She promptly emailed me back and explained that although she would love to do something like this the proceeds from her sales go towards her adoption funds so she simply could not afford to do a giveaway at this time.  I emailed her right back and told her i understood but asked if i could post a blurb on my blog anyhow about her products because i thought it was a cause that all my readers would love to hear about and hopefully would be willing to share with their blog readers.

She told me that would be wonderful and explained that they just started the process to adopt a sweet baby girl from Ethiopia and that they have already adopted a child, a daughter, from JiangXi China whom is 4 years old and they also have a biological child, another daughter, who is 3.

So i got browsing around her Etsy shop and found so many more slings i could totally see myself wearing, here are just a few of my favorites.

I love that she even does an organic one and the pattern is adorable.




Small Wish baby slings come in the following sizes (custom sizes are available). 

Small (23-24″)
Medium (24-25″)
Large (25-26″)
X-Large (26-27″)


It looked to me like most if not all came with an inseam pocket which she states are perfect for carrying your keys, Ipod, ID, Credit card, snacks etc.  They were all reversable which is a plus for most moms too because it means one sling two looks.  I also found her prices to be very affordable with her slings costing between $34-$39.






The diaper clutch measures 10 x 7 and can hold 2-3 diapers and a travel wipes case.  The fabric is interfaced to make it more sturdy and top stitched for a chic finished look. Features include a velcro closure and a silver bracelet. Simply slip the bracelet over your wrist to carry the clutch and have hands free to carry your baby. It can also be hung on a hook or over a door knob for convenience. 


If you buy any sling you can purchase one matching burp cloth for $5.00 and Your burp cloth will be made with the same printed fabric on your sling., if you choose to order them seperate you can buy a two pack for $12.00.  The burp cloths are 18 x 12 inches and made with Gerber birdseye 3-ply cloth diapers, which have been prewashed. These burp cloths are machine washable – Gentle Cycle, Cold and dry on low heat. They have been top stitched with a vine embroidery.  

So please I am asking, no begging, all you my readers to put her button on your blog, and post a small blurb at the very least about her shop and send all the people you can to check out her products and purchase if they can.  The prices are very reasonable and the funds are going to a VERY good cause.
