Tots on Tuesdays No. 9 -- Featuring Sugar Plumkin

Good morning and Happy Tuesday! I'm happy to announce our two winners of the $10 Gift Certificates from Ambrosia Delights; Eva and Karin. Thank you all for commenting, and congratulations to our winners!

Today's featured seller is Lucy of Sugar Plumkin on Etsy. Lucy hails from Los Angeles, and is a happily married 28 year old nanny to 4 little girls.




Here's what Lucy had to say: "My husband and I have been married for two years and we hope to start a family of our own in a couple of years. I have a bachelors in Humanities and Italian and I am a certified Forensic Technician. After doing a one year internship at the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office, I decided that I love working with children way more than anything!
A few years ago, I made a blanket to give to my friend after she had her first child. I got a lot of nice compliments and people started asking for them, that's when I decided to start my own company. I started selling them at Farmer's Markets and at School Holiday Events. Eventually I heard about Etsy, and I'm so glad I did, because now more people can enjoy my blankies. I love it when I bump into people that have bought a blanket from me and say "You know that blanket I bought from you?, It's my kid's favorite!" That tells me that I'm doing something right so I better keep doing it!"


For today's "Tots on Tuesdays" giveaway, Lucy is offering up a $20 Gift Certificate for her shop, Sugar Plumkin.

To Enter: Please visit Lucy's shop, and then come back here and let us know what you would buy if you won the $20 Gift Certificate. Please only leave one comment per person, with an EASY way to get ahold of you if you win. This giveaway is open WORLDWIDE. Deadline to enter is Monday, April 21st at Midnight PST.

I would get the Pink Dots and Brown Minky Baby/Toddler Blanket. The thought of having both a pattern and soft minky on both sides with different textures makes it twice as nice!

I would buy burp cloths. I love the sock monkey ones. My fiance would really appreciate the burp cloths because our son is always spitting up on him. I don't know what he does to the little guy because he never does that to me! I'm home with him all day and as soon as I pass him off to his daddy he urps up!

Jaime said...

Like a lot of the others, I adore the sock monkey burp cloths- they are just too cute! I also really like the cherry blosoom ones, and the pink and brown color scheme of a lot of the products. But yes, if I won, I think they would go towards the awesome burp cloths! :)
