Introducing Laina's Laundry
I just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself and my shop. My name is Jenna and my shop is Laina's Laundry - named after my beautiful baby girl, Laina, who is almost 11 months old. We started cloth diapering when she was born, though we used a diaper service for the first few months. Once I got the hang of it I decided I could do the laundry myself. We use mostly prefold diapers, since that's what we started on with the service. I love them and their versatility, but they are a little...boring. So I started embellishing them and thought that made diaper changes so much more fun! Now I am offering my embellished prefolds for sale through my shop: www.LainasLaundry.etsy.com. I especially love designer fabrics, and have a couple Amy Butler prints up right now.
I also make baby leggings which are totally fun and everywhere we went people commented on them and asked where to get them, and when I said I make them everyone said I should sell them. So I added those to my shop.
I also have cloth wipes up for sale and may be adding wet bags in the future. Other things I like to make (which may make the occasional appearance in my shop) are burp cloths and baby blankets.
Laina, my husband (Jay), our Dalmation (Ella), and I live in the Denver Metro area where we moved from southern California almost 2 years ago. We moved simply for a lifestyle change, and so that we could afford to have me stay home when we had kids...which surprisingly happened rather quickly after moving here! I also love horses and used to work and ride for a horse trainer back in CA full time. I still get a little bit of my horsey fix here as I work for just a few hours on Saturdays at a Dressage barn.
I am glad to be a part of the Etsy cloth diaper team and hope that you all will check out my shop!
