Mama Swag Monday | Guguberry

The bib is quite possibly the greatest invention ever. When I found Guguberry, I was over the moon. I will confess to you that I am a snob. You already knew that? Well, I’m not surprised. I have a thing about tacky baby items. Enter: Guguberry. The most adorable, fashionable, darling, soft bandana bibs & bandana droolers I have ever seen. With 5-month-old twin boys, there is a lot of slobber in this house. They are both teething & ruining outfits when I’m not paying attention. Our Guguberry bibs have been a(n) lifesaver outfit-saver.

Keri O’Dell is just another super cool mama who was inspired by her littles to make something that other mamas & babies would love. 


I started my shop with encouragement from my husband! He is a designer and made the guguberry name and logo and he really encouraged me to list a few things on etsy. I was so nervous, but after awhile i made a few headbands and baby bibs and listed them and as Guguberry grew I have found my little corner of what i liked to do with baby items! When i started my youngest at the time, {my youngest daughter} had just turned one. Now we have added to our family and have our fifth little one! Sewing has become such a part of my life, I love it and love seeing your little ones wearing our items!! Thanks for stopping by and looking around! Hopefully, you found exactly what you are looking for!
God Bless!

Mama Swag Monday | Tink+Key

Welcome to another edition of Mama Swag Monday! Today’s post is a fun one because I am featuring such an amazing woman & company, Tink & Key. Tink & Key features faith-based tees, specifically, their incredibly popular Miracle Baby baseball tee. Stephanie has a heart for bringing encouragement to others through the sayings or words on her littles’ tee shirts. When I first learned of Tink & Key, I saw a photo with a sweet story about a miracle baby. I happen to have two miracle babies, so I shared my story with Stephanie & here we are!

If you read my personal blog, you know the long story of my twin pregnancy, so sit tight. If you’re new, this is the story story of my miracle twinkies.

After five miscarriages, my husband & I were going to try one last time. My heart & emotions were raw. I learned that I was the problem & needed a dose of Clomid in order to even hope to get & stay pregnant. It worked, and in late September 2013, I learned I was pregnant. Just two weeks later, I laid in the ultrasound room, swearing loudly, when the technician showed me TWO babies.

At 15 weeks pregnant, I was put on moderate bed rest given all the risks associated with a multiples pregnancy. I spent the next 12 weeks relying on my husband & his parents to do everything I couldn’t do: dishes, laundry, cooking, taking care of our daughter, shopping. Until you are restricted to only being allowed to use the restroom & shower, you have no idea how much you do in a day just to keep up with daily chores.

At 27 weeks, I went in for another routine ultrasound, only to find that my cervix was funneling (opening from the inside out) & I was in preterm labor. I was sent immediately to St. Luke’s hospital in Denver in hopes that taking medication & being confined to a hospital bed would keep my boys cooking for AT LEAST 4 more weeks. It worked. I was sent back home just shy of 34 weeks.

A week later, at a another routine appointment, I was in labor. It was go-time. Jax was first, and was bright-eyed & ready to come on out. My little Jett was next. He wasn’t breathing. We found out later that Jett had his cord wrapped around his ankles & wrists, & was squeezing it, cutting off blood flow to his tiny body. The boys stayed in the NICU for just 3 weeks, learning to eat & adjust to life outside the womb. They are perfect, sweet & so snuggly!
