Hey oldtimers, come out of the woodwork! What have been some of your favorite "masterpiece" diapers through the years?

Anybody remember (or have!) the Kiwipie with the clothes line embroidered on it?

What about the Midsummer Night's Dream KIYP (I think it was KIYP)?

What have been some of your favorites?

I liked the suspense of waiting to see what the next Fuz set was going to be. Some of them I really liked, and some were just ok, but the buzz around the Fuz was fun to watch!

Oh, and the original Sweet Peas, the $100 Honeyboys; those were fun to watch all the hype and shopping around. I just window shopped, but I loved to hear about other people's score!

What was your favorite Fuz set? They were all so gorgeouse, but I have to say the sun and sky sets were my favorite I think.

I don't remember them all... But the watermelon one stands out in my mind. The Ice Star stands out. I think I remember the one you were talking about too.

I remember when we crashed the cart at Fluffymail and she had to post on this board and beg us to quit going to her website so she could get it back up! I also have a Tuesday Bear custom cover with my dog's picture and his name embroidered on the back...so pretty that I can't bear to use it I also remember when Elbee had an instock store that actually had dipes and covers in it!

I guess I'm an old timer but I was into the simpler diapers back then. Small budget. I do remember when FB produced the reverse bug print. And when longies became popular. I remember when Fuz babies causes huge excitement-- and a little jealousy.

I remember the reverse bug print. I also remember really loving the rounded tab FB - still prefer those. I also remember when FB were ALL fleece.

I remember when WAHMs could sell Motherease diapers. I remember when hemp first started getting really big!

I'm trying to remember more. Are SOS diapers still around and big? I remember when people stalked those every Friday.

I remember the very first Tuesday Bear cover - when she was brand new, and didn't have a congo store.

I remember buying Mudpie Babies AIO's straight from her store, with no waiting list - before she was hyena.

I remember Ivy Rose was extrememly popular.

Also Luke's Drawers, Heavenly Heiny's (I think that was the name). Oh the old times...

I remember when Maria stocked a huge in store (not hyena cart) stocking really early in the morning. Everyone who was awake was able to shop for Kiwis for a long time. I wound up spending a TON of money.

Well, when wahmall was up and running Mommyhearts was pretty popular. I had one, it was very nice.

Oh, also, goodness, I'm blanking now...ugh...the ones that were called "candy kisses" or something (can't remember the wahm name).

were they Luke's Drawers?

I remember when RighteousBaby was super hyena! We crashed her site a whole bunch. I remember when KP had custom slots....all the time. I'd go and check them out, but I wasn't sure I wanted to spend so much on a cover. At the time I thought Aristocrats were kinda $$$. I remember when SugarPeas would sell out in seconds. In desperation to get my hands on one I ordered a couple size 2's. They were enormous! Maddie probably still wouldn't fit them.

I started CD'ing right before Lori quit doing the Fuz Garden sets. She still did them occasionally on Ebay, but no more reservations. I rememebr when she had instock diapers but I thought they were too expensive. Its interesting how my perspective has changed

I think I am becoming a bitter diapering gal... nothing excited me anymore!

Oh but some of my favourites:

That loooong bitter KP thread for her first HC stocking.

ME and another mom duking it out for the KIYP Wisteria soaker. I am sad I didn't get it but it was during Fluff Factory time and I fell completely in lust with a celestial Fussybutt set. I never plan on selling it either!

We crashed BBB first stocking at HC!

OH, I remember when people actually talked about stockings here! Talk about crazy!

Mom to 4! Welcomed Aila Wren on Friday, February 25th!
