Times Colonist Baby of the Year!

Every year, when you announce your newest addition in the Times Colonist newspaper, you are automatically entered into a contest to win Baby of the Year. The baby of the year wins a gift package, and this year I was so honored & blessed to have been asked to create and put together the gift!

Here’s the original ad by Times Colonist:

Since the baby of the year could have been a few weeks old or a year old, I included items that can be utilized by all.  Here’s a behind the scenes video of all of the ingredients: Click here for video!

Update: Darcy is the baby of the year! A message from Tracy (Wee Piggies & Paws) who met the family:

“So awesome I got to meet baby Darcy and his parents yesterday they were very excited especially the brand of cream as it is the one they have been using. All gift cards will be put to use they plan on visiting Tumblebums Solutions when he gets a bit older and has more mobility. They are well on their way to get many great keepsakes and will continue to do so of the next year or so with a great haircut package from Lizzy Lee & Me and photos by Melanie Tadpoles Gallery it was all wrapped up in a perfect diaper cake by you Sonia Creations by Sonia so thank you all for this great bundle of fun for the 2014 baby of the year Times Colonist!”
