Lovely friends –
It has been a long, crowded, hot summer full of projects and tantrums and giggles and growth. We have added six chickens to our family. Fable has added dozens of words to her vocabulary, including orange, but not including red, green, or blue. I got to officiate not one but two beautiful weddings. We’ve gutted and rebuilt a room of our home, visited friends and family, and generally had a lovely time. And I’ve missed you. And it is my absolute joy today to welcome you back to GOC with the reveal of one of our summer projects, of which I am incredibly proud, and a fantastic giveaway for you. Yay fall!
I’ve come to love my friends at Catbird Baby this year – loved working with them and learning about the carrier industry, loved their creativity and the way they welcomed me and embraced what I can contribute. Last June, Beth and Nicole flew up to Portland, and together with my gorgeous friend Liz of Fishgate Films, a few friends, and this lovely city, we made The Catbird Seat, which has become one of my very favorite things. I’m so glad to finally share it with you!!!
Catbird Baby makes a fantastic couple of carriers, and they have such a heart for families and babies and safety and connection. It has been my privilege to work with them, to use their wonderful product to carry my girl, and now, to share it with you! Catbird Baby has generously offered one winner their choice of the carriers featured in The Catbird Seat. You can choose the Catbird Baby Mei Tai in Sunset or the Annika print, or the Catbird Baby Pikkolo in Zephyr Gray or Georgia print.
Both of these carriers offer four positions (front facing in, front facing out, hip, and high back carries) and both are fabulous for babes 8-40 lbs with no infant insert necessary (YAY! I hate me an infant insert.) Either one would be a fantastic addition to your existing carrier collection, or a wonderful first or only carrier for families just getting started with babywearing. You also get my help making sure you are completely hooked up with all the tutorials and answers you need to make sure you’re using your new carrier well (you sort of already have that and can email me anytime, but hey, free carrier!!)
Details on how to enter are below! If you need help choosing, well, you know where to find me! A winner will be chosen and contacted on Saturday!
