The Diaper Diaries

but hopefully not full of crap

 Thanks for all the birthday wishes. My mom even loaded me up with chocolate and I have 2, yes 2, cakes to finish off this week. This will do wonders for swimsuit season. The winner of the scripture name is comment #2, Kate. The fact that she told me I don’t look a day over 25 had no bearing on the results 🙂


It’s Giveaway Time!! April 21, 2008

Filed under: Contest — thediaperdiaries @ 6:40 am

It’s that time again. Are your fingers nimble and ready to comment “count me in” 400 times over the next few days. I hope so, cause there are some giveaways to be won!

Anywho, I will once again be giving away a product from my mother’s fabulous line of products, Script-Yours. Like before, I will be giving away a personalized scripture name 


These are hand written and can be customized for the winner. You pick your colors, your scripture, and name. Then each name is personally prayed over with the scripture before it is shipped out.

We have chosen scriptures for each of our girls and had names done for them. I also give them out when my friends have babies. The result is always the same. People are amazed and touched by such a personal and unique gift. It also is a powerful way to bring scriptures into your home.

In addition, anyone who doesn’t win and would still like to order any products from Script-Yours can receive 20% off any order placed before May 15th by mentioning my blog when ordering.

So to enter, just leave me a comment and I will draw at random on Friday, April 25th at midnight. This contest is open to US residents only (sorry), but you don’t have to have a blog to enter. Now head on over to here if you want to enter some more.

* This contest is now closed. Thanks for entering. The winner is Shannon #28. Congrats!!

  • I have decided to enter this post in Scribbit’s April Write Away contest. For details on how to enter for the chance to win a gorgeous photography book head over here.
  • Pick me, Pick me, pick me!! 5 Minutes for Mom is having a contest to win a $200 gift certificate for a pair of designer jeans. Jeans that look good and fit and make you look 15 pounds lighter (well maybe not that last part, but maybe so). Since having children I have not found a pair of jeans that truly, really fit. Nor have I found the body I used to have. That would cost a heck of a lot more than $200 but maybe the jeans will get me by in the meantime. Head over here to enter.

    1. Hip Mama’s Place is giving away a very cute diaper bag over at their website. Their website is packed full of great info on different products for moms that are definitely very hip. They have their own store and lots of great product reviews and giveaways. They also have a message board where you can connect with other hip mamas. Plus I can sooo relate to their logo (except for the minuscule waist line). Head on over and check them out!
    2. As always An Island Life has several giveaways going on. My personal favorite is for this Diaper Clutch which you can win here. Running a very close second is this adorable bag from Pink Lemonade Boutique Bags which you can find right here. My children of course would say “Forget the bags, we want the DVD.” Considering it’s My Friends Tigger and Pooh, I can’t really object. Head over here to win that one.
    3. Finally, The Clean Plate Club is giving away a $50 gift certificate to Williams-Sonoma. We have another gift certificate to there sitting around the house waiting to be spent. This would put my one step closer to my dream of owning an KitchenAid mixer. Yes, that is my dream. Enter over here.

    There you have it ladies (and any men). Good luck!

    announcement.png Need to announce a baby, engagement, graduation or wedding? Tired of the typical fare. Announcements Galore designs high quality photo cards for you to announce your special news. They are printed on actual photo paper and you can customize their designs to fit your needs. The best part is the price. The cards are under $1.50 each. which includes envelopes. This is a bargain for this quality. Their competitors are charging $3 and up.

    Here is an example of their work.


    Here is the scoop. Each announcement measures 4 x 6. There is a minimum order of 20 cards. After ordering you email your pictures, and they will send you a proof before sending them to be printed, so you get to see your cards before they are printed to make sure they are just what you wanted! If your photos need any cropping they will do that for you. They can also turn your pictures to B&W. All orders are shipped within three days of the proof being approved.

    Announcements Galore has generously offered a $20 gift certificate to my readers. To enter, just head over to their website and tell me what your favorite design is in the comments. Only one entry per person. This contest will close at midnight on Sat. Mar. 1 and I will draw a winner and post it on Sunday. Thanks for entering!
