I have reviewed hundreds of products over the last several years and will continue to do so, however some changes will be made.

Some of those changes will be as follows:
  1. ALL reviews will now be published either on my blog or website (which is near completion) YAY !
  2. I will be switching blogs and offering advertising for other vendors as well. 
Things that will remain the same:

  1. I WILL NOT review or photograph any items/products that are similar to mine.
  2. In some cases, I make the professional decision to keep my reviews exclusive to certain brands and/or companies AND in some cases it is required from the company - I respect this and will continue to do so. For those of you whom have voiced some concerns and/or upset regarding this policy - I am sorry... this is not going to change and I really hope that you respect this. I am not trying to be mean or spiteful nor are the companies I work with.
  3. All products sent to me for reviews and/or to be photographed become my property unless previous arrangements have been made.
  4.  I will not pay to do reviews BUT I will continue to review products that I purchase for personal use/business etc. 
ALL changes will be in full effect no later than June 2014.

If you are interested in me reviewing and/or photography your products or both, please feel free to contact me at

I look forward to all the fun new changes and working with you to promote your products and/or brand.

Have a blessed day ~

Late Night Share - My Job NOT a Hobby !

Thank you so much to all of my clients. All of which have been so amazing. Thank you for trusting me to create beautiful things for your babies, children, grand-children, clients etc. Thank you for being so understanding, and patient. It's hard to be the only one trying to run a business. 
 I don't have the luxury of having an assistant or other employees. I don't get sick days, vacation, and very rarely do I actually abide by my "business hours." I'm the designer/creator/manufacturer, the editor, the accountant and the marketing guru, the purchaser, shipper and receiver and the list goes on and on -  all while being a mom and wife. I know I get behind, and I know I forget things. I try my very best to stay on top of things, but I am only human. I make mistakes. I have horrible organization skills, yet somehow remember where I put everything! I'm not sure I will ever catch up on laundry, and there always seems to be at least a few dishes in my sink and toys lying around! My job never ends, in either career. I enjoy every moment of it though. So again, thank you! You's are all awesome!
I can't wait to meet all of my future clients and as always look forward to working with my many faithful and repeat clients as well. I love what I do, and feel blessed to be able to do what I love. Prairie Tots is My Full Time Job (working 14+ hours a day - I work more than if I was to work outside the home) -  this is NOT a hobby, NOT something I do because I see that there is a market for hats and props where I can make a little extra spending money to by the newest Coach purse or luxury item for myself. This job pays my bills, helps feed and clothes my kids and affords me the luxury to stay at home and care for my kids and attend to my 4 year olds medical needs/constant doctors appointments and her surgeries - without PTB, non of this would be possible. 
So thank you all so very much for your support and continued patronage - your business means the world to myself and my family and the friendships I have made along the way will be treasured always. 
 Life really is amazing isn't it?!?!?
 Have a blessed day ~
