Welcome to Alison’s online baby shower, a link up hosted for Alison by The Momalog, Northwest Mommy, and Yeah Write!

Congrats to our favorite mommy-blogger, Alison from Mama Wants This on her soon-to-arrive baby son, “Scrumplet!”


Here’s What You Do

  • Grab our button code below and paste it into your HTML so you can link up:
  • Write a single post using one, two or all of the below prompts and link it up below (and you can also link up at Yeah Write, or Northwest Mommy.)

Here are your prompts:

  • The Momalog: Post your favorite baby photo telling us why it’s your favorite, and include a quote about motherhood!
  • Yeah Write: Guess Scrumplet’s due date, birth weight, and length!
  • Northwest Mommy: Pin your favorite baby shower gifts for Alison from Pinterest!
  • Be sure to stop by Alison’s blog to wish her well! She will be reading all the posts, but since she’s nesting we’re not asking her to comment on all the posts! Stay tuned for an apres-shower post from Alison on her blog.
  • Drop by and visit the other linkers posts to see what they have in store for Alison!

Th-that’s all, folks! Have fun!

But first, what would a baby shower be without presents?

Open It! Open It!

My friend Michele, the founder of movingStories LLC, the creators of StoryPillows™  - is going to create a personalized, heirloom StoryPillow for Alison!

movingStories makes movies and mixed-media art infused with beauty and meaning. Their new line of StoryPillows™ combines photography, collage and fabric to tell the stories you hold close to the heart. They’re sewing things up with the help of crafty seamstress and blogger Kate Albus.

Want one? You can order your own StoryPillow™ over at movingStories!

Alison can use Scrumplet’s baby photos, his birth certificate, first footprint, ultrasound, even baby booties – anything that can fit on that pillow! movingStories will create a beautiful keepsake that will be cherished for generations to come.

Here’s a sample of one of their super-cute StoryPillows™ - this one is a teacher’s gift:

And to give Alison an idea of the kinds of mementos she can use to create Scrumplet’s StoryPillow™  here’s an example of a baby-themed pillow (this one’s not finished yet – it’s still a story-board):

  6. [...] The first prompt, from Ado at The Momalog, is to post a favorite baby picture with a motherhood quote. With seven of the most beautiful babies in the world to choose from, this could have been pretty darn difficult. So we made the executive decision that since Eddie is the baby of our bunch, his pic wins. This is our little bouncing ball of joy. [...]
