Monkeyshiners Handmade Accessories: Review And GIVEAWAY!

You could win a prize package like this one, for yourself or even as a holiday gift!  Read on to enter...
Just a few short years ago I was sharing time with a sweet girl named Jessica in the nursing mothers room of our church, each of us chatting happily while our little ones, well...nursed!  Little did I know that as the time passed, she would inspire me with her creativity and organizational skills while remaining a stay at home mother of 2, and receive my admiration for her strength and grace, while caring for her dear son with angenisis of the corpus collosum.

Recently, Jessica "wowed" me yet again with her fabulous artistic and sewing abilities when she gave me the opportunity to try out some of the top-quality merchandise from Monkeyshiners Handmade Accessories- her Etsy shop.  Here she currently offers clutch bags of various sizes, really cute bookmarks, cloth doll diapers, and baby accessories- with even more designs soon to come!  I received her diaper clutch package (which includes a diaper clutch, bib clip, and pacifier leash) and also a cloth doll diaper for review.  Can I just say that I have been absolutely thrilled!?!  

These items are skillfully built to preform, with quality materials in tons of fun prints and patterns!  Even the presentation of these items is impressive: from the speedy shipping and care instructions all the way down to the pretty little ribbon tying it all together! My girls and I have LOVED using our new Monkeyshiners stuff...and even Shawn has commented several times how he enjoys having the diaper clutch handy!!

Check out some of the images captured during my photo shoot, then enter to win below:

The Diaper Clutch
See...isn't she pretty?  Love the coordinating prints and the adjustable cuff!
It's wonderfully compact, too!
Simply unsnap and fill with up to 6 disposable diapers and a travel wipes container
Or, use it for 2-3 cloth diapers for a quick trip out

And take a look at this cavernous zippered compartment!

The Pacifier Clip

Well, our kids have never used pacifiers..but I came up with a very useful idea for this one: I snapped the end through the bottom car seat strap and then clipped it onto baby Jude's special blanket.  No more: throw the blanket on the floor while mommy's driving game!!

The Bib Clip 

These little beauties transform a dishtowel, napkin, or the like into a full service bib!
So cute and convenient!

The Doll Diaper  

The only reason this baby doll is not in one of my daughters arms is that I was away for the weekend and seriously snuck it out the door while they weren't looking.  The girls have loved diapering their babies with these! (Doll not included in giveaway)

This will fit baby dolls of various sizes.  Isn't it dear?

Here's a shot of the adjustable velcro tabs and soft, fleecy interior.

This giveaway is now closed.  Congratulations to our winner, Kimberly!
