Congrats to the top 10! It was an incredibly close race among the top few and a very funny range of submissions dealing with all kinds of topics we parents face as cloth diaperers. I’ll be in touch with the top 5 shortly about their prizes. Thanks to the sponsors Applecheeks, SprayPal, Maxwell Designs, Smartbottoms, and GroVia for helping with this fun event.

Announcing the “Make a Cloth Diaper Meme” Contest! Be Funny, Win Prizes!

This post may contain affiliate links.

No fancy titles here but this contest is going to be so much fun who cares if it has a fancy name?  I don’t!

Make a funny/relevant cloth diaper meme and win prizes/fame!  There will be prizes for the top 5 memes will each get a prize and the top 10 memes will be posted here on Dirty Diaper Laundry and shared!

Success Kid Contest

I don’t want to go into what a meme is, I was hoping by now most readers had caught on, but if you haven’t here is a post on Gizmodo that should help.

Your job is to create your own meme.  You can use an established meme such as Success Kid, Bad Luck Brian, First World Problems, Awkward Penguin, Grumpy Cat, Confession Bear, Pepperidge Farms Remembers, and so on…. there are many to choose from!  You can also make your own meme with your own image (keep in mind this is the Internet, if your meme becomes popular there is the risk of it being shared so you have to be ok with this) and add your funny text on top of it.

Creating a meme can be as easy or as hard as you want to make it.  There are meme generators that let you search popular memes, all you do it add text to the top and bottom, save the image, and share it.  I’d prefer that you save and post your image rather than linking to it for this contest.  To use your own image you’ll need some basic skills with Photoshop or another image editor to add your own text (Impact font in white with a black stroke) on top and bottom.

Content and Guidelines:

As long as it is related to cloth diapers your meme is fair game.  It should be funny, witty, or relevant- not mean.  I am totally ok with vulgarity or dark humor but with a purpose, not for the sake of being shocking.  I can see places where a dirty word would work, sure, so if you find it works in your meme then go for it.  We are adults here.  The best memes will relate to cloth diapers AND take on the tone of the meme/image it uses.  You can check out the cloth diaper memes by change-diapers.com more more inspiration and look below for some ideas.

How to Enter:

You will want to email your meme to me dirtydiaperlaundry@gmail.com to be SURE I see it.  You can also post them now to my Facebook page, post to Instagram and tag me (Kim_Rosas), etc but be sure to mention that you are entering the Make a Cloth Diaper Meme contest on www.dirtydiaperlaundry.com and use #CDMEME hashtag so I can find them.  Deadline to enter is Saturday, 12:00 am EST.  I must have them in hand by then.  Top 20, decided by a team of judges TBA, will be posted to Facebook by that Wednesday for voting and the public will have until the following Saturday, 12:00 am EST to vote.  The top 5 memes will win a prize!  You can submit multiple memes but only 1 per person will be allowed in the top 20.

So far Spray Pal, Smartbottoms, GroVia, and Maxwell Designs have signed on.  I just need one more sponsor and we’ll be golden! Not all prizes are open to Canadian residents, if it turns out more Canadians win than I have a prize for I will make something happen so let’s say this is open to both US/Canada.  I can’t guarantee a prize to international winners if one makes top 5 (but if it happens I will try), but if you are ok with the fame and not a prize you should enter too.

Here are some memes I made as inspiration.

GIVE and Win GroVia diapers for a family in need!

This post may contain affiliate links.

After the exciting announcement last week that GroVia would be partnering with Giving Diapers, Giving Hope to help them with their shipping and receiving needs.  Already this partnership has proved to be an immense help!  We are almost up to 10 boxes shipped since that announcement!

To celebrate GroVia is going to give a full stash of new GroVia diapers to a deserving family.  Here is how it works-

givingdiapers

1) E-mail social@gro-via.com before Friday, Jan. 24, with an original photograph taken by you that illustrates the word “GIVE.” Get creative! Your photograph does NOT need to feature diapers or even people at all. Please keep the family you are hoping to win for anonymous to the public. High-resolution is preferred, but cell phone photography is acceptable. (the example has text on it, you don’t have to do this)

2) We’ll e-mail you back with an application for you to fill out with/on behalf of the family you are hoping to win for. Only families who qualify using GDGH’s normal qualification standards will be eligible. Return the application by Monday, Feb. 3.  It is very likely that you won’t know the particulars of their income so we will have a different application for you)

We’ll post the photograph entries in a Facebook photo album for our fans to vote on Feb. 4! The FAN FAVORITE after three days of voting will WIN a #GivingDiapersGivingHope, all-new GroVia #clothdiapers stash for a family struggling to afford diapers for their baby.

(Income-qualified applications that do not win WILL be eligible for GDGH stashes if interest is indicated. You may not enter on behalf of your own family.)

You could help a family you know win a whole stash of diapers by taking a photo!  It is fairly simple, and this gift could mean the world to someone you know.  I hope you’ll consider participating!

Megaroo’s Au Naturel Extended Tab Prefold Giveaway {1/6}

This post may contain affiliate links.

When I reviewed Megaroo’s Extended Tab Prefolds many months ago I found a new love (you can view my review/video here).  I like prefolds but I ALWAYS have trouble getting enough fabric around the waist.  If you are using a snappi to close the diaper, like most people do, then having more fabric is just what you need.  Megaroo’s Extended Tab Prefolds are the SOLUTION to this.  You can get a better fit, and save yourself a headache when trying to apply the prefold.  Halleleujah!

Megaroo’s ETPF used to be hard to come by and would need to be “stalked” but now with more help and a new website you can now find them in stock more often and she is open for customs.  Right now in-stock items can be found on their HyenaCart and custom orders can be placed on their website. I really want a few teeny tiny ones if I ever have baby number 3, as I know they will be such a great newborn diaper.

And don’t just take my word for it- Megaroo’s have GREAT reviews on The Cloth Diaper Finder with 100% of reviewers saying they would buy them again!

Lucky for you, Megaroo’s is giving 1 lucky DDL reader 2 of their Au Naturel ETPF’s.  The winner will choose the size and Boy/Girl?Gender Neutral for the stitching. Giveaway is open to US and Canada and ends January 6 2012!

One Size Sampler (Tiny Tush, Fuzzibunz Elite, and bumGenius 4.0) Giveaway Sponsored by Abby’s Lane!

This post may contain affiliate links.

Choosing a cloth diaper is almost never simple.  New parents are greeted with hundreds of brands, styles, and options that can almost make them run away and choose disposables just for the sake of not having to pick.  That is why today’s giveaway is so awesome!  Abby’s Lane, an online and brick and mortar store in Manassas, VA, is offering up a Tiny Tush Elite One Size, Fuzzibunze Elite, and bumGenius 4.0 to ONE lucky DDL reader.  Jealous!

I know of Abby’s Lane because of their great reputation for quality customer service and their FREE SHIPPING in the US policy.  I even got to experience their customer service first hand when I ordered a cloth diaper cover and it had a defect.  I sent an email and received a prompt reply. They sent a replacement cover and the whole thing was painless.

Abby’s Lane also has a nice set up for easy browsing. I am usually aware of the brand I need so I love when shops have the “Shop by Brand” drop down menu in an easyt o find place.  I am ALWAYS looking for that.  Search by the type of diaper from the menu bar on the left, of find gift ideas for Baby and Children, including one of my all time favorite products, the Nose Frida!

For today’s giveaway the winner will receive a Tiny Tush Elite One Size, Fuzzibunze Elite, and bumGenius 4.0.  I have reviewed the Tiny Tush Elite and the bumGenius 4.0 and definitely prefer them both in snaps.  I am working on reviewing the new Fuzzibunz Elite as well!  The winner will get to choose closure and colors.

Use the Rafflecopter entry form below to enter.  You must have javascript enabled.  Open to US only and giveaway ends December 23.

GroVia Cloud and Surf Mini Starter Set Giveaway Sponsored by The Green Nursery {12/1}

This post may contain affiliate links.

The Green Nursery- You had me at the Home Page.

Your clean, friendly user interface.  Your cheerful holiday themed graphics and clearly labeled shopping categories.  Your “Diapers Only” site.  I can’t believe we haven’t met sooner.  Will you marry me?

To say I am impressed by The Green Nursery’s online store would be an understatement. Because I am looking online often I have been to a lot of diaper stores.  I’ve found some to be harder to navigate than others.  But for some reason TGN’s design speaks to me.  It feels natural to browse their store.

The Green Nursery offers cloth diapers and much more.  Maybe one of the reasons I love their store so much is that I have 75% of the toys pictured for each of their categories.  Wooden play food, check.  Wooden stacking rings, check.  Plan Toys Drum Set, check.  Wooden balance bike, check.  Green Toys Garbage Truck, check.  Sophie the Giraffe, check and check.  I’m not sure it this means I have great taste or they do.

They have an impressive selection of quality toys that makes me want to go shop in their Bloomington  brick and mortar store. There is just something about a great independent toy store with way cooler stuff than your local Toys R’ Us.

Other things I love: Baby Registry, Rewards Program for frequent shoppers, and they even have a Wish List feature.

On to the good stuff!  The Green Nursery carries a fine selection of cloth diapers and baby carriers.  You can either shop via the drop down menu or go to their “Diapers Only” site.  There is a category based drop down menu for the baby carriers as well.  One of the brands they carry is GroVia, and a lucky DDL reader will win a Grovia mini starter setsponsored by The Green Nursery, which includes two shells (1 Cloud, 1 Surf) and four snap-in soaker pads. The winner can choose the type of closure.

bumGenius 4.0 Giveaway Sponsored by Kissed by the Moon {11/26}

This post may contain affiliate links.

Everybody LOVES a chance to win cloth diapers, right?  This giveaway for a bumGenius 4.0 is sponsored by Kissed by the Moon.

Kissed by the Moon is a newer online store that sells cloth diapers as well as Mama Cloth and even a few adorable toys!  They also offer Free Shipping on orders over 25$!

About:

Kissed by the Moon was created out of a passion for cloth diapering and environmentally-friendly living.  After I began cloth diapering my daughter in 2006, I realized that cloth diapers were not only easy to use and great for our planet, but that they were irresistibly cute and cheaper to use than disposables.

While I had wanted to open an online store for several years, it took me getting pink slipped (I’ve been a middle school teacher for the past seven years) to give me the kick in the rear end I needed to finally pursue my dream.  My devoted husband has been next to me 100% of the way, and together we created Kissed by the Moon.

My family of two children, husband, and two kitties lives in Elk Grove, California, where we enjoy picking produce from our garden, baking, going on bike rides, and spending time together.

Other than selling bumGenius products, Kissed by the Moon sells Bugga Bugga Boutique Snapless Fitteds, Sustainable Babyish Products, and Green Line diapers. It is RARE that a shop sells more than one line of diapers I haven’t reviewed yet!

One thing that struck me as awesome about Kissed by the Moon is their Specials Page. They have listed all of the current sales and other news. If you are shopping make sure to check for coupon codes and deals!  This page also keeps you up tp date on stockings and new products, like the Boingo stocking coming soon!

Kissed by the Moon has generously offered one lucky DDL reader a bumGenius 4.0 in their choice of color/print and closure.   Use the Rafflecopter form to enter this giveaway which ends November 26.  You will need javascript enabled to see the form.
