    Jennifer Michelle Ora Kreisler says

    Corinth is a name My cousin (My soulmate) and I decided I would name a child one day. My cousin passed when we were only 24 yrs old. I Did have a son I named after him, but never got to use the name Corinth. This would bring focus on so many memories of moments great and small that my cousin and I shared– daily as I use it with my little boy. It hapens to be in one of my favorite color schemes too. I have so many memories of this wonderful soul to share with my growing family. Truth, nobody deserves anything in life– any more than others. Appreciating opportunities is so important though.

    mindy says

    I LOVE PPB. I have loved it since I 1st saw it. I have one of the fancy fabric boxy’s that I used for my son…but it had a velcro closure, the only design flaw. It woke him up whenever I opened it. I can’t use that with my new baby girl because newborns need their sleep. Now I need a new one…

  16. 39

    Bethany says

    Love the pattern and colors! The cupcakes are fun and I love how the cookies mimic the pattern on the bag!

After a long 2nd battle with Hyperemesis this would be a much appreciated pick-me-up! I’ve never owned a PB, and I’m absolutely smitten by their design. This is such a pretty Springtime bag.

  37. 74

    Nicole B says

    I absolutely love PPB products! The last year has not been the greatest with my health. My husband and I had decided to start a family and we found out I had a cyst on my ovary. I had surgery for endometriosis, lost my job in the process. But long story short I am doing better and although I am not pregnant yet, we are still trying and are hoping for the best! So what a great incentive this would be! :)
