One Year of Back Issues: Laura F.
One Year Subscription: Amanda
I'll be sending you an email shortly, to let you know that you've won! Congratulations!!
Both of the things I want to share with you today were supposed to be included in my week of "baby celebration", but because of timing, they didn't fit in the week. So I'm really happy to share them both with you today.
The first is this great new bag called the Samantha Diaper Tote from Kokopax. It is my use-every-day diaper bag with Birdy and I love that fact that you'd never really know it was toting diapers and extra onesies and burp cloths, unless you peeked inside. So many people have commented on how much they love it's size, style, design without even guessing it falls under the category of "diaper bags". That's my kind of diaper bag.
The bag is made of 100% cotton canvas with a water-resistant lining. It is full of pockets inside including a zipper pocket and elastic pocket for bottles or sipppy cups. It has a strong magnetic closure and is roomy without being cumbersome. I really love using it.
Go to the Kokopax website and MommyCoddle readers can earn 10% off any order by entering the code mcoddle2010 . (Also check out their cute carriers–awesome prints and lightweight so you're not adding extra bulk besides the toddler already on your back! 🙂
LIVING CRAFTS MAGAZINE
I've really scaled back my magazine subscriptions but one that I still really enjoy for it's inspiration, philosophy and ideas is Living Crafts magazine.
"Living Crafts is a community of readers who value the work of their hands, use natural and organic materials, and live an authentically holistic lifestyle.
Living Crafts provides craft enthusiasts with the information, ideas and inspiration they need to support their desire for self-sufficiency, sustainability, and a natural lifestyle."
Thanks to the generosity of the folks at Living Crafts magazine, I am excited to give away one year of back issues and and one year subscription to Living Crafts magazine. Leave a comment on this post to be entered and I'll pick the two lucky winners on Friday! Good luck!

Ooh! I love crafts, I hope I win!

I love stealth diaper bags and those are some good looking ones! I also saw that magazine while checking out somewhere the other day. I wanted to pick it up, but I had an armful of wiggling baby at the time. I’d love a chance to see it up close!
My kids aren’t in diapers anymore, but I’d still use that bag! Great for snacks, water bottles, crayons, and other “big kid” stuff!
Adorable bags! Would love some new craft ideas too.
That magazine looks great!
The magazines look awesome. I almost salivate at the thought of opening a new (to me) creative tome. Count me in for the contest and I’ll wipe my chin off!
I’ve never heard of this magazine; thanks for the head’s up. This year at 3 year old preschool we concentrated on our “backyard”, taking many walking and close by field trips to farms and sugar shacks and a little nature preserve. This year our town is setting up a food/etc. coop in our “sustainability” center (still figuring out what that is!) and this would be a great magazine to have on our loaning shelf. I wish I lived nearer a bookstore! Need to ask DD if she has heard of it. She plans to homeschool her 3 little boys and they are all about natural lifestyle 🙂
I would love to be entered for the Living Crafts give-away. Thanks so much for offering it.
Would love to win a mag subscription!
Great giveaway! I have been wanting to subscribe to Living Crafts. I have been picking them up here and there, and always love them! And that bag is adorable. My baby sister is having a baby soon, and she would LOVE this….or maybe I would keep it for myself. It is adorable!
