Introducing the Cloth Diaper Butler Review and Giveaway

"Little tool for Modern Cloth"

When it comes to cloth diapering, there are a few tools and items that I would consider a luxury to own. The Cloth Diaper Butler is one of them. This specific tool is handy and nice to have--especially when it comes to cleaning the dreaded "Number Two" from off of cloth diapers!

So what exactly is this Cloth Diaper Butler you ask?  
This gadget simply clips onto your diapers--prefolds, AIOs, AI2, Fitted Diapers--whatever cloth diaper you have it will hold onto it for you.  It keeps you from having to hold directly onto the diaper.  The Brass or Stainless Steel Chain allows the diaper to hang over the toilet and away from you. If one finds that there is a stubborn "sticky", the Cloth Diaper Butler does the soaking for you!  No more having to soak them yourself!

 My Review:
I am surprised to say that we actually like using it! At first my husband was skeptical with the tool, but I challenged him to use it for a couple of days.  Sure enough his mind and heart towards it changed. He liked it. He said that it was nice and quite a nifty device!  Especially when we need to soak the diaper to get the rest of the contents out.
 On my part I like that it holds our prefolds out, and does ease the burden of playing around with a floppy prefold.  The cloth diaper butler really helped because the clips helped spread any of my diapers open and keep it open.  My hands are pretty small, and holding a diaper to where I can spray it easily can be tricky!  Armed with my Cloth Diaper Butler and Diaper Sprayer--Cleaning and Rinsing has been a breeze!  (And OH YES I Feel INVINCIBLE!)

  • Wood Handle:
A good finished wood is a really nice touch when trying to have natural products and live more naturally.  The finish on the wood makes the handle water resistant and easy to wipe down for maintenance cleaning.  Overall, It feels like it is pretty durable  and would last us quite a long time!
  • Clips:
I like the clips!  I did not have a problem with our prefolds or all in one diapers slipping off the clips.   All in One Diapers and prefolds are among the heaviest of our diapers that absorb a lot of water.  We have been using the Cloth Diaper Butler for months now and have not had any problems with the clips.

Hang Tags Giveaway from

Have you ever heard of Hang Tags?  
---Here's a picture to help visualize what they are!

Uses for Hang Tags:
  • Presents and Gift Tags. One of my favorite ways to see them used are through Presents and Gifts!  What better way to personalize a package then with your own hang tag--personalized and designed by you?  It is so easy to utilize this.  Tie on your special tag with a ribbon or string and Voila!  A nice special simple touch completes your gift.
  • Branding.  I believe that Hang Tags are quite beneficial and efficient in spreading the word or image of a brand name or label.  I know that if Clothing Hang Tags are attached to what I have bought, I grow quickly accustomed to its label and if I am shopping I can easily recognize the brand or label associated with it because of the hang tag.  Not only can they help consumers associate to a particular brand or label--but it can also provide information about the company.  Company Website, Social Networks, Contact Information, and a business' motto can all help a consumer become familiar with that brand or company.
  • Wine Bottles or Beverages.  Ever so often I find an event or information "Hang Tag" attached to a wine bottle.  My curiosity usually gets the best of me, because these particular hang tags have a special offer, event or special description about the wine itself.   I enjoy reading them!  Sometimes I get lucky and the hang tag tied to the bottle's neck is a coupon! 

Hang Tags as a Type of Business Card:
Hang Tags make it easier for me to find out more information about a company or business because usually they contain a website address or contact number.  I feel that that company is more personable because I have information at my fingertips--that Hang Tag could very well be a "Business Card".

Environmentally Friendly:  
 I was very surprised to find out this information about! offers Hang Tags that are created from paper that is composed of 10-30% Recycled paper, depending on type of hang tags.  One may learn more about how Uprinting is doing its part in creating Eco Friendly Hang Tags.  In trying to be responsible and mindful of the environment, they offer the usage of recycled paper as well as using Soy Based Inks.  Learn more about how works to be environmentally friendly here: Environmentally Friendly Hang Tags

        The Birthday Chronicle Review and Giveaway

        Now, I missed my daughter's first birthday in celebrating it.  I's really an important one.  We had a simple dinner a common day--no balloons or a big fiasco!  I was kind of sad, but at the same time, it was nice having a small little family time together.  But yes, I do have a tinge of regret for not having the biggest baddest birthday for her.

        Something that was really neat that I have come across is Casie's Birthday Chronicle.  This would make a great Personalized Gift for Anyone,Anytime!  In my case a great gift for Sophie that she can appreciate later on in life when she's older.  That day Sophie was born was one of the craziest days for me.  I did not know what was going on and could not care less of what was on the newspapers!  This Birthday Chronicle though was not the exact newspaper--was something more of a neat way to capture her day!

        Some of my Favorite Aspects in the Birthday Chronicle:
        • Announces how old the Person will be under the Title of the Newspaper Chronicle.
        • Features Famous Music Top Ten Hits.
        • One thing I do like is reading the different articles in the Chronicle.  One of them actually does kind of capture what the world was going through at the time she was born.  I do like that it offers real information and articles that would have appeared on that day.  
        • Lastly, I really like that it lists famous stars sharing the same birthday as my daughter.  Under that same column it also states how many days that person was living!  For my daughter her second birthday, September 3, will mark her 731st day!
        • Makes a great easy, last-minute gift.  Casie, in less than TEN MINUTES, was able to email me my Birthday Chronicle!  I submitted my information and she was very responsive with any questions I had and in about 8 minutes or so I checked my email and there it was!  
          • Sent her the information of my daughter at 3:31pm, March 7.
          • Received finished Chronicle in my Email Inbox at 3:39pm, March 7th!
          • Same DAY!
        •   I thought that was amazing and felt she was very responsible in making sure I had my birthday chronicle lickety split. I feel like with a nice parchment paper--I can frame this and keep it for her as a keepsake!  With others, this would be fun and something that would make a fun interesting present!
        • The beauty of The Birthday Chronicle is that it can be created and sent to your email!  Find some beautiful paper to print it out on and you have it!   
        Product Description from the website:
        A personalized (8 1/2 x 11) mini-newspaper front page, going back as far as January 1, 1900 up to December 31, 2010. Your Birthday Chronicle includes a greeting, by name, from the then-President of the United States, plus newspaper headlines and stories from the year of your birth.
