Found by Marie Review and Giveaway

When I was helping my own mother set up a shop to feature her handmade goods on Etsy a few months ago, I stumbled upon a wonderful shop that seemed right up my alley.

Found by Marie specializes in modern handmade good and lovely hand picked textiles. In other words, Marie has some really cool and beautiful pieces for women and children. And boy, do I love cool and beautiful things!

Balian is outgrowing his clothes, shoes, and even his bibs, so when I found Marie's shop, I immediately gravitated toward her selection of lovely, practical bibs. The bibs we have are now too small to cover Balian's body, and trust me- he needs coverage... he's a very messy eater! When Marie offered to send me one of her waterproof bibs, I was thrilled! She allowed me to choose a bib from her shop to review, so I chose a very nice orange and white damask print on a light blue background.

What I love about it...
This bib is waterproof, and has a built-in spill catcher! The bib virtually wipes clean, which makes cleaning up after use a snap! The spill catcher catches any blobs of beefy mac or mango that would normally wind up on Balian's lap, which saves me from having to do a lot of extra soaking and washing. Gotta love that! If and when the bib gets dirty, it can be washed gently and dried gently right in the washer and dryer.

Balian... modeling his new bib

I wasn't sure how Balian would react to this new bib, to be honest about it. He has absolutely hates bibs from the very first time I put one around his neck. He's always grabbing at them and ripping them off. He actually really likes this bib. I can adjust the tightness around his neck, and he thinks the pocket spill catcher is cool. He has no problem having this bib on and keeping it on for an entire meal! My husband even loves this bib! It makes feeding much easier on everyone! Marie also includes her own special 'Found by Marie' tag on her bibs, which I love. Now every time we use this bib, it will remind me of Marie, and that it was made by her loving hands.

And dear, sweet Marie sent me a little surprise, too! I knew that I was getting the bib, but I didn't know that she was going to send me a mommy accessory! Marie makes really neat crocheted teething cuffs for moms and babes. In the center is a sanded and oil-treated piece of wood perfect for teethers to chomp on! Balian is loving it!

Marie also makes and sells beautiful bags and clutches like this one...

...and pretty accessories for mommy, like this one...

All in all, I am so pleased with the items that Marie so generously sent to me. Hers is a shop that I will be directing all of my mommy friends to! Her bibs and cuffs are going on my Mommy Must Have list, and absolutely get my Mommy Stamp of Approval! I am so glad that I found Found by Marie!
