Original Andrea Giveaway!

This week I am excited
for you to meet Andrea
of Original Andrea.

Hi my name is Andrea and I wanted to introduce myself. I'm mom to Ian, 11 and Colton almost 3 months old, and wife to wonderful husband, Ben.

Original Andrea was started as a custom scrapbooking business. I used to scrapbook but found it too cumbersome and hard to store in my small home, so I converted the website to a blog and started offering custom sewn items. I've been sewing for about 17 years. I received my first sewing machine as a birthday gift and taught myself how to sew. I have always loved making costumes, bags, wallets, doll clothes, and other things for my friends and family. In April I found etsy and decided to sell some of my handmade items in my own etsy shop:

In my quest to make my life easier, I developed my own feeding and diaper tracker. It's so much easier than writing a time down for each feeding. If breastfeeding, just mark an L or R on the start time and circle or cross out through the end time of feedings. It's also much easier to compare day to day feedings and diapers with a glance. I couldn't find anything with this type of simple design online, so I decided to start selling the pdf- fully personalized- in my etsy shop along with other baby accessories, and of course bags. Plus, I 'm always taking custom orders! Thanks for reading. Have a great day!

Ever been caught in an unexpected shower during a diaper change?
You need some of these bad boys.

How about a crayon purse (full of goodies) to keep the kiddos entertained?

Or a Whimsey Wallet.
The perfect size for your phone and some mullah for those quick errands

With a new baby it's hard to remember your name
let alone when you fed the baby last or which side you fed them on.

So to make life with a newborn a little easier
Andrea came up with these awesome feeding and diapering charts.

She even personalizes them and then emails them to you in a PDF so you can print them out to your hearts content.

Andrea is giving away
2 Personalized feeding and diapering charts (in PDF form)!


If you are a new need one of these!

Don't see any babies in your future?
These would make such a great baby shower gift.
Print a bunch on your computer, put them in a little notebook and give them to a mom to be.
