  12. Wow,I could use these....my purse is like the burmuda triangle....things go in but never come out. :) Not only that,my purse literally weighs 10 pounds b/c I'm too lazy to go through all the stuff. :) Anyways,I LOVE the dancing bambi medium pouch....I'm a sucker for anything with cute deers...I love the Deery Lou character. I would love to have something so fun in my purse like Downtown Girl's pouches/coin purses,it would make going into my purse much more fun. :)

  13. As for her blog,the first thing I noticed that I like is that she put cakies blog first on her list of lovely blogs....indeed the best blogs should go first. :) Second, I love the baby gift sets she made...I love handmade burp cloths...when I do have another baby,I am so buying everything handmade. :) I don't have a facebook or twitter account, so I wish I could earn more entries in another way.But hopefully that doesn't matter & I win anyways....I'd love to share the set with my girls,too. :)

  78. I love the Downtown Girl Designs stuff - great fabrics and it looks like excellent craftsmanship! Plus I'm a major sucker for purses/pouches/clutches/secret hideaways of any kind! I love the coin purse in the quirky owl print. I have a 5 month old little boy and when I was about two months pregnant I found this material in light blue and bought it to make curtains for my baby room. So it has a special place in my heart :) You can check out how my curtains turned out here!!
