PaciFashion on ArtFire

I've opened a new shop with ArtFire and have the new updated look for every individual strap.  Come check it out at .  On my artfire shop I have a new blog.  PaciFashion: breaking down the design gives a more detailed description of what makes up each PaciFashion and why I've used each item.  I'd like to challenge you all to read it and come up with a pacifier/binkie that PaciFashion cannot work with, without the use of an adapter. 

I'm not done updating every listing.  All the twin and triplet sets need new pictures.  I will be adding a new group to that; Quintuplets!  It will include 5 straps and 3 metal clips.  I've very excited about it, along with all the new pictures!  Please let me know what you think, I'd love to hear what you have to say!

Out with the old, in with the new!

Usually that phrase goes with the changing of a new year, but I couldn't help myself.  I'm so excited to introduce the new look for PaciFashion that I'm jumping the gun and showing it to you now.  My shop has now been open for a little more than a year and all the while I keep finding new styles and/or prints to add to my collection.  I wanted to update the design, but it didn't need a change.  PaciFashion truly is universal.  It works with every type of pacifier out there; NUK, Soother Soothie, Gumdrop, Razz baby,  MAM, you name it, it works with it, no adapters are necessary.

Here's just a taste!

The new look is simply this, matching, color coordinated nylon cords chosen for each strap.  No more plain white cords for every strap.  And the new nylon cord is also more durable and doesn't discolor as easily as the original.  If you think there would be a better color match to a strap that you would prefer, let me know.  I'm definitely open to ideas.  I also have created a listing just for that.  Let me know what you think!  Starting in November all PaciFashion strap will be updated with the new look in every listing!

Pink October

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so in honor of that I am offering free shipping on everything Pink in my shop.  This offer is good all month long!

I also want to give a heads up that PaciFashions will have a new look beginning November 1st.  I'm very excited about this new change.  Don't worry, they are still universal, working with all types of pacifiers and Binky's.  I also hope to have made additions to my collection in getting ready for the upcoming Christmas season.

Don't forget to make your orders for Halloween soon!

August 24, 2010

Halloween is soon to come!

I wanted to let everyone know that I have created a number of  new PaciFashion straps specifically for Halloween.  Some of the new styles will be Purple with Black Spider Webs, Silver Skull and Cross Bones, Green with Orange Jack-O-Lanterns, and White with Black Cats and Orange Pumpkins.  I hope to have these in my shop very soon so be on the look out and make sure you give yourself time to order them before October so your child will have plenty of time to show it off before the season ends.

Reached 200 Sales - Its Raffle Time!

This is the item I have chosen for my newest give-away.  
I am excited to have reached 200 sales, and hope that I will have these give-aways more often!

All you have to do to qualify for this give-away is go to my facebook fan page (click on the link on the right hand side of this page) "like" me, and also make a comment about this picture.  Its OK if you don't have a baby girl yourself.  PaciFashions make a great gift, especially if you want to give the mother-to-be a unique present, and something very helpful!

August 11, 2010

200 strong, I could still use your help

I have reached my 200 sales year goal 2 months early.  This is very exciting and I am thrilled.  I will be doing another give-away.  This time I believe I should give away something more for little girls since my last give-away was a tie; that was more for the boys, its time to do something girlie.  I will very soon have that new give away going, hopefully by tomorrow so that I can announce the winner this weekend.

I could still use your help.  My husband and I are trying to come up with more ways, better ways, to get my name and product out there.  We hope to have a website for my store, and perhaps stop using etsy altogether; of course that's just a little further into the future.  Tell your friends about me, your sisters, mothers, daughters, co-workers.  I've found, living in a small (very small) town that the best advertising is by word of mouth; when there aren't billboards, radio and t.v. commercials doing it for you.  Some of you may say that the internet should be a huge source, but alas, not so when they don't know what they are searching for.  I will continue on my venture to make my store bigger and a better website.  But even when I reach that goal I will still hope people are talking about my products and spreading the word!  Thanks for your support!!

August means summers end

Seems I've been trying to play catch-up all summer.  To sum it up I'm cleaning out old pictures and updating a lot of my current PaciFashions with a new look.  Its also been cleaning up my computer.  I'm nearing my 200 sales goal which will mean another give-away when I reach it!  I'll also be having another sale this month.  I don't want to call it "Back-to-School" like so many stores out there, and since my products are meant for infants.  So I will be having an All Things Striped Sale. 

If you've been a fan of the Princess Jammies, don't worry, they aren't gone for good.  I've been wanting my store to only sell PaciFashions and a separate shop for those adorable PJammies. Prince Jammies will hopefully be on the inventory list.  There's also been a slight change to the Princess Jammies; there is now matching color lace to the color of the PJ's!

July 8, 2010

There's still more to come

This summer has been exciting, and very productive!  I have reached, and passed, my 100 sales mark since I opened shop last September.  Just 2 months after reaching that mark I am up to 162!!  I still have new styles to add to my PaciFashions collections and I'm also still on the look-out for more PaciFashion Tie designs.

I would also let to add that, yes, your requests have been heard, and Prince Jammies will soon be in our shop!!!  I have to say they are very cute, and my son, who is almost 3, would NOT let me take them off him.  Oh the bribes I had to make in order to get them off.  They are a two piece set and are made out of the same satin tricot as the Princess Jammies, but no lace.  However, the cuffs on the pants and collar on the shirt are made out of a cotton blend.  I'm very excited about them!!

If there is anything more you would like to see in my shop, please let me know.  I'm always open to more ideas.  If you love my products please let others know!!  Leaving comments and suggestions here is perfectly alright with me!!

100 Sales Give-Away!

I'm finally doing my give-away that I've been mentioning since I reached 100 sales a few weeks ago. The item I'm giving away is my new Bright Blue PaciFashion Tie. I'm actually very excited about this tie!
I've become very partial to blue because of my daughters eyes; she has her daddy's deep blue eyes. She's been the reason I began creating PaciFashions and my model. She turned one 2 weeks ago!

Now to enter the raffle and be eligible to win you must fan me on FaceBook. Go to my PaciFashion profile, fan me, then comment on my Bright Blue Tie. Let me know what you think of my tie!

PaciFashion Ties are unique; there is no other product out there that can compare! If you've been on the look-out for cute baby boy clothes and accessories then you know that there really isn't much out there. That is the reason I created these Ties, though my daughter doesn't use them; that is the only thing I'm sad about. I've received so many compliments on my ties, and customers who have purchased them tell me that there little boy steals the show wearing a PaciFashion Tie.

If you don't have a little boy and win this tie you can give it as a gift, or keep it for the future when a baby boy has joined the family.

Summer's new additions!

I can't believe that 2010 is already half over. I've been so excited, and busy, with my store as I've been growing my inventory!! There are so many new designs that I want you all to know about!

Of course this is all of my new additions. Please check out my store to see all the new additions!!

The Promise of Ties

Our inventory has been building up over the past two months and I haven’t kept up with getting everything listed. For all the new regular PaciFashion straps they are listed and ready to go (and I’m very excited about them!). It’s been the ties that have kept me behind. I haven’t always been a fan of the stiff polyester ties but it was the best available option for solid colors. I have since found a polyester material that I like more however it doesn’t keep shape as well as the stiffer material.

I’m happy to report that I have come up with an option that has solved the problem! Sadly it also takes just a little longer to create, but I feel that it’s worth it. I want everyone to be happy with my PaciFashion Ties since I’m so excited about them. It makes me wish that I had a little baby boy to show them off with, almost but I still love my daughter. Plus I have come up with a few opportunities to dress her up and accessorize with a tie.

One customer made a request a few weeks ago; ordering a tie but without the strap to hold the pacifier at the tip. I thought that wasn’t such a bad idea, to have the option of a dress tie. I can most definitely repeat that order for anyone else who is interested. Just keep in mind that the way it clips on will be the same since that is the design of PaciFashion. I can most definitely make the promise of all the new ties listed and for sale by Sunday, May 16th.

Q Find It - (sweet deals) Toy Story movies and $15 at ToysRUs

I saw two offers that I thought I should share.  For ToysRUs and BabiesRUs shoppers this could be a good deal.  For Friday and Saturday only you can receive a $15 "R"Us gift card.  Purchase 2 value boxes of Huggies diapers at any BabiesRUs location, and you'll get a $15 gift card.  Unfortunately I no longer live near one or I would be doing this myself.

This next deal is for anyone and everyone who loves Toy Story (1 and 2) and is eager to see Toy Story 3.  I know I am.  This deal is very sweet.  Make sure you register (its free) with DMR, Disney Movie Rewards.  Go to and follow their instructions.  If you go to Fry's it might be worth it to call ahead and find out if they include the "buy both and get $10 off" or it won't be as sweet as you hope.  This is an awesome deal, and works, its been tested.  Once you've signed in enter the codes from Fat Wallet into the box on the right side of your DMR page that says enter code.  You need both codes, and you need to download their coupon printer application.

Good Luck and enjoy!

Q Review: Baby Sling Recall

I know Wednesday's are supposed to be about a review of another store, but I saw this as I was checking email this morning and thought I should mention it to all mothers out there.  This recall is for the Infantino brand slings.  I had one of these myself, but it frustrated me too much to use it, so I got rid of it.  Now I wish I threw it in the trash.

1 Million Baby Sling Recall

If you have one of these slings, stop using it immediately.  They say not to use them with an infant younger than 4 months, but I would stop using it altogether.

Q's Day - Tuesday

Sorry that it seems I'm only doing Q's Day entries.  I haven't forgotten, just some how the days are slipping by, and now I realize its Tuesday again. 

I am still working on my PaciFashion Ties.  I will have 6 new colors posted later this week, and am very excited about them.  I hope to have them listed so that they can be purchased and mailed in time for Easter.  There are 3 that are definitely meant for Spring.  Just as I had promised weeks ago (maybe even a month ago by now) one of those ties is pink.  Its OK because its not a pale, or pastel pink.  I hope it will be received well.  One Sunday at church, back when my family still lived in Lehi, I saw the handsomest little boy; spiked brunette hair, bright blue eyes, and he was wearing a pink button-up shirt.  It was so absolutely darling!! 

That's when I decided there was nothing wrong with little boys having some element of pink in their wardrobe.  After all, my husband has a pink striped tie himself, and my dad, who is a doctor, has a pink button-up shirt.  I've always been impressed with him when he wore it. 

I am also working on a new way to present the Princess Jammies!  They now are available in 7 colors: Pink, Lavender, Sage Green, Yellow, Purple, Red, Black (all have white lace trim, except Red has a red lace, and the Black has black lace).  They are also in every size: 6-12 mo., 12-18 mo., 2T, 4T, 6, 8, 10, 12, and adult ladies sizes S, M, L.  My mother-in-law is the talent behind each one, making them all by hand.  She is able to teach me how to make them now that we live in the same area.

I promise to have pictures up on here as soon as I have them up for sale.  I will also post some to me fan page on FaceBook.  Happy Spring everyone!!

Q's Day - Tuesday

I can now make my apologies for my store not always being open, or up to date, and this blog not having entries.

For the past 4 weeks my family has been in the middle of a move. Usually there is time to prepare for making a move, especially when its across different states. However, we made the official decision to move 2 weeks before the move. The meant we had to take off a week to go house hunting, and then allowed ourselves a week to pack up and move away.

We are now located in the south eastern corner of Arizona, in a place referred to as the "Gila Valley". It is where my husband and I first met, and his home town. It took us some time to get internet set up in our home since the conventional way is not available to us. The move is complete, with internet, and pretty much every box has been emptied (or put in storage) getting us settled in. It makes me think of "The Incredibles" when she calls up her husband at work, and announces that they are officially moved in; even though they have been living in that home for the past 3 years.

I have recently done an inventory of what I have in stock; pacifashions made, or the materials to make them. I'm pleased to say that I have 29 different individual styles of PaciFashions, and 12 different types of the Ties. I have yet to make a tie in each style, but will soon be on my machine so that I can show you.

Sorry that my shop had been closed for a few weeks, and that there hasn't been any updates. I hope to keep my shop up to date on a consistent basis, and for this blog to be continued the way I had planned for all along.

February 24, 2010

Will be back soon!

For all my followers, and those who stop by from time to time.  My family is in the middle of a move that will be completed next week.  Thank you for you patience.  My shop will also reopen next week as well.  See you all on the other side (of the move).

Q Review, Baby Mae Boutique

I'm a little late this week in making my review, so forgive me, and enjoy.

I found a new shop that makes baby blankets, bibs, and burp cloths. This shop began on January 31st of this year, and doing great. There are only a few items listed, but she's listing them just as fast as they are being sold! She does have another shop that she's been running for a few months, and is transitioning her baby items to BabyMaeBoutique. There are some adorable items for little girls and some for little boys. Her prices are very agreeable, and her fabrics come in a wide variety.

While visiting BabyMaeBoutique and you're not seeing that exact item you want, you can visit the sold section of DecorNMore for examples of other blankets, bibs, and burp cloths. My favorite is this boys set, especially since its so hard to find adorable, stylish items for those handsome little boys out there. I hope that you enjoy BabyMaeBoutique.

Q's Day - Tuesday (All about the Boys Collection)

I've recently added a red/white Bandanna Tie to my collection.

I've been trying to make my boys collection larger, and not just with the ties. Speaking about ties, I do have plans to add more pastel colors to the tie collection for Spring. Those colors will include lavender, and pink. Pink is becoming a more widely accepted color for men. Heck, my dad has had a pink collared shirt since I was in high school, so I never thought much about men not wearing pink at all.

There's an adorable little boy in my neighborhood that has worn an adorable pink polo to church, and I just love it. Its actually because of him that I want to add pink as a tie. I do have my daughter posing a few ties for my store, so it has a small appeal for girls.

I've had a few suggestions on what to add to my boys collection, but I would like to hear more from you. Another idea that I have running through my head is customizing PaciFashions with embroidering. I'd LOVE feedback about that idea. I do want to hear more about what you'd like to see in my shop.

Q Find It

With just killing some time on Saturday, I went to the local mall with my family. We usually spend more time in the toddler play area, but my son was ready to stroll around. I always enjoy The Children's Place, and they have a lot of sales going on right now.

I know Valentine's Day isn't even here, but retailers are already making think ahead to Easter, and summer. One reason why I enjoy The Children's Place so much is because they have a larger selection of boys clothes. I was never into all the girly stuff myself, since I grew up a Tomboy, but having my daughter has definitely changed that. I love that they have a larger color selection for little girls, and not limited to pink. Personally, my daughter looks her best in blue. She has very fair/pink skin, but striking blue eyes (got that from her daddy, I'm so jealous), so she blends in with pink, but stands out with blue.

Having said all that about pink, here is a sale specifically for Valentine's Day. I know that its almost upon us, love, however, is never out of style, and there's always planning ahead for next year. If you have your heart set on something else, something not currently on sale, well here's a coupon code for you. Get 15% off your entire order, and this coupon is good through the 14th of March. The code is M2AXQXYQ2A. Enjoy! I know I will.

Q's tip

My tip for this Friday is for getting hair bows to stay on our pretty, little baby girls head.  There are two kinds of bows: those with clips (snaps, barrettes) and those with nothing.  Obviously those with nothing can't be too big or this tip won't work.
Not everyone has those new, elastic, woven headband things.  Also, not every baby (including my own) will wear one willingly.  There is a simple, and very inexpensive way to have a type of head band.  Using old pantyhose, thigh-highs, knee-highs, or leggings, simply cut off a section of one leg.  It doesn't have to be a wide piece, nor should you cut it too thin either (I don't recommend any width smaller than 1 1/2").  It'll roll in on itself, so you don't have to worry how the edge of your cut turned out because it doesn't matter.  Of course you'll want to "eye-ball" it first to see if it'll fit snugly, not tightly, around your little one's head.  It can't be too loose either.

(I used some knee-highs I got for under 50cents and Lisette is showing off one of my PaciFashion ties)

Presto!  A simple, affordable solution for a head band to hold those adorable bows, and flowers that you can't seem to get to stay on any other way.  The nylon is meant to fit just right, and not cut off circulation so your baby is comfortable with it there; assuming that she doesn't pull it right off.  This tip can work for your older children, teens, and yourself, if you so desire.

This is a simple and a little sticky solution.  Most kitchens will have Karo, or Corn Syrup.  If you don't happen to have it stocked in yours but like this tip, then get the smallest bottle you can find.  With just a dab of Karo, put it on the back of your bow and hold the bow in the place you'd like it to stay for a little while.  It washes right off easily with just a little water.  If the bow falls off your babies head while you're away from home, and you don't have your Karo with you (who would, that would be weird if that was one item you carried in your already heavy diaper bag) just warm up the Karo that's on it till its sticky, and gooey again.  It can be washed off the bow as well.
(yes, this is my daughter a few hours old, this was the only way she could wear a bow)

Alright, its that time again.  If you've used this idea before, or try it for the first time, let us know how it works for you.

Elizabeth Daugherty's pacifier story

I don't have any paci stories yet because my little man wont be here til May, however I do have a good paci story about my sister.

When my sister was about 1 my mom and dad took us for ice cream at the underground mall in Honolulu Hawaii. My dad's favorite Ice Cream was their Hot Fudge Sundae and he would always order an extra side of Hot Fudge for our ice creams. We had been eating for a while when my dad went to use some of the extra fudge, but the cup was missing. My dad thought maybe they hadn't brought it yet, so he asked for another one. They brought it out and we continued eating, my mom and dad talking and joking with me (I'd have been about 3 at the time) when my dad went to use the extra fudge again. Yet again it was missing, but this time my dad knew they had brought the extra fudge so he's looking all over the table for the little silver cup of hot fudge, but it's no where to be found. Suddenly my dad looks at my 1 year old sister and says "Meggan, did you eat daddies chocolate?" and she shook her head no. He looked at her again and said "Meggan daddies asking nicely, did you take his chocolate?" and again she shook her head. It was then that he noticed something peaking out from the side of her pacifier. So he reaches over and pulls the pacifier from her mouth and her mouth is covered in chocolate, but so is her pacifier, all of the inside of it is covered in hot fudge. Then he notices that it's also all over her hands and shirt and as he looks down he sees not one but TWO little silver cups of Hot Fudge between her little legs. One is completely empty and the other is almost empty. It seems that she'd taken the cups of hot fudge when my dad wasn't looking and then when no one was paying attention she'd take her pacifier out of her mouth and dip it in the hot fudge and put it back in her mouth. The reason she'd only shake her head when my dad would talk to her was because she'd just put a big scoop of fudge in her mouth so she couldn't answer. Over all she ate 1/4 cup of hot fudge, and my mom said she was a bundle of energy the rest of the day! I can only imagine!

My mom says it's one of the funniest things she'd ever seen, and that it was impossible to be angry with her after seeing her covered in hot fudge. Plus it was pretty clever for a 1 year old, when you really think about it. If she'd have had a PaciFashion clip she couldn't have hid the hot fudge in the first place because it wouldn't have reached that far, however then we wouldn't have a funny paci story either.

Q Review

I was needing a little push to know who I should write a review for. Since its a new feature of my blog I have to start somewhere, and to be frank, I don't know anything about anyone's shop and/or products. In a way that's not fair to you, or the seller. However, there was one seller who caught my eye. It's actually a seller that I met years ago in college.

Cantaloupe Corner creates, and sells "Unique handmade tees and accessories for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers, and MOM'S too!" What's so different about her products is that all designs are ink, bleach, paint and lead free; that means no running, or peeling of the designs, and no harmful chemicals. Her products really do sell themselves. With darling play-on-words designs, and beautiful patterns, there just might be something that appeals to you. Her shop has been open since April of 2009, and is already over 200 sales.

I've peeked through her 200 sales and several products are repeated. "Choo Choo, I'm 2" is a darling shirt for the birthday toddler. For a sweet deal, you can order 3 baby bodysuits from 7 adorable designs. "Lock up Your Daughters" is irresistible for those oh-so-handsome little boys out there.

For the women, her "Vintage Rose Damask" Tees get a lot of attention. I think her "Red Cherry Blossom" design is very beautiful. Another one that has caught my attention she doesn't have an active listing yet, but you can find it with the sold items: "Strawberry Frosting Swirl" is simple, yet beautiful.

I again apologize that my review isn't as in-depth as I had hoped, and I'm sure you expected. I hope you will take a look at Cantaloupe Corner for yourself. Jenifer has her own Cantaloupe Corner blog if you want to get to know her better. I first met Jen back in our early college days in a small eastern Arizona town. I can tell you she is one of those easy-to-get-along-with types. Having said that I must confess that I'm not always that easy, though I mean no harm, and I don't bite.

Feel free to leave your feelings and comments about your findings here. If you're a seller and would like your shop featured write to me at with details about your shop, and yourself.

Q's Day - Tuesday

So Tuesday's will be "anything I feel like blogging about" day. I've decided that it might be nice for some introduction since you have taken your time to visit my blog, and I appreciate that.

My name is Lisl Quinn (hence the "Q"). My name comes from "The Sound of Music" which happens to be one of my favorite musicals. I'm 27, the youngest of 5, and have the reddest, darkest hair in my family; 100% natural. My sisters have joked that someday they will pin me down and give me tips, or highlights. Of course our mom warned them to never touch my hair. After all, she is the woman I inherited it from. Don't get me wrong, I'm not vain about it, in fact I hated all those years in grade school being made fun of for being so different and add that feature with my name, and the fact I wear glasses. I was a popular target way back when. However, the hair did come in handy when in a crowd, amusement park, etc.; you could always find me and anyone with me.

I grew up as an army brat, and got the privilege of living in a few different states, and even in Panama. I really couldn't tell you anything about Panama, except for 2 mental pictures. I do miss the east coast from my childhood, and hope to visit again someday. I currently live in Utah, though I will always profess that I'm from Arizona. My husband is from Arizona, born and raised in the same town, and that is where we met. We married in June 2004.

We have 2 beautiful children, who have been/are easy babies, and I mean easy. They are so easy to love; sometimes a little too easy to love. My son is 2 and though he's rarely in trouble to begin with, its so hard to be angry with him. He wins hearts every where we go, and it makes most outings take longer. My daughter is 8 months old, and we are thrilled for her that she has a tint of red to her hair. I've been afraid for her that she'd hear it all her life from family if she didn't inherit red hair. She's also my star, and model for my shop. Yep, that's a picture of her above. She's put our PaciFashions through her tests, and tortures.

It was actually my children who inspired me to begin PaciFashions. Franklin, my son, had a strap with a plastic clip. It didn't last long till it began breaking, and became useless. With Lisette, my daughter, I refused to use the same brand. Then with the one I did buy off the shelf, well I don't care much for fuchsia and it doesn't go with everything. I meant to only make a few for Lisette, but I had so much leftover ribbon I decided to see if others felt the same way I do. And that's all about me for now as well as how PaciFashions began.

If there is anything you'd like to know more about, or have information you'd like to see presented in my blog you can email me at for any and all requests. I promise not all "Q's Days" will be all about me, and am open to any ideas or suggestions.

Q's tip, the first in the series

So I'm thinking of starting a "Q's tip" series. I'm not sure how often, or what day of the week I'm going to give this tip, but I do hope to make it something consistent. I'm always more than happy to receive feedback, and input. You can always submit your own tips and allow this blog to share it with other readers.

Q's tip:
The empty baby wipes container can have a use when its no longer in use. Once its dried you can use it for any purpose you wish. Currently I have a few in use for different things.

My son, who is two, has several different small toys that end up in places I don't want them to be, or get lost and forgotten in his toy box. I've removed the lids of a few of these containers and have these smaller toys separated. He now knows where all of his toy cars go, his play tool pieces in a different one, and puzzle pieces in another.

For my daughter, who is 8 months, I keep her pacifashions, and bows in one. In a different one I have her socks, and leggings. I got so sick and tired of searching and digging through the drawers to find these smaller articles, and this made a great solution. However, I cannot take full credit, as I got this tip from an article in American Baby magazine.

Feel free to let me know how you've put this tip to work, or share another tip! Hope you enjoyed Q's tip this week!

Sarah Lambson's Binky Story

Once upon a time, there was a woman who had a beautiful baby boy who would not stop crying unless she was holding him. Though this did make her arms big and strong, it did nothing to improve the shape and size of her hips because they just seemed to expand to help support the weight of the growing baby. Because this (wonderfully patient and kind) woman had chores to do, the baby went everywhere she went - including out to the chicken coop to help feed the chickens. The woman had a huge scoop of chicken feed in one had and the baby in the other and was walking toward the feeder when she stepped in a HA-HUGE pile of chicken crap, slipped out of her nasty outdoor clog-type shoe, and nearly dropped the baby while chicken scratch flew everywhere. Thinking that all was well, she turned to look at the sweet baby boy who, in turn, gazed back at her, then to the ground where the very last perfect sized binky was laying (in the smear of chicken crap) and watched as his face fell into sad pout and he promptly started to howl.

Yes. ALL of this could have been avoided if only she had a PaciFashion binky clip. If only.....

Emily Carter's Pacifier Story

I thought I'd share a funny story at the expense of myself about my own child loosing his pacifier P.P.F.D (Pre PaciFashion Days): I was attending a church function that involved racing cars. My son, Daniel was about 4 months old at the time. Sometime that evening I lost track of his pacifier and looked everywhere for I even thought his cousin's might have taken it.

So, after about a good half hour of looking, I felt a bit of discomfort from my bra. Turns out the pacifier had been hiding in my cleavage the entire time! My good friend could not stop laughing at me. I was completely embarrassed. I sure wish now that my baby would have had a PaciFashion strap to prevent that whole incident.

Better luck for me on the next round of kiddos.
