DIY Scrabble Tile Pillows!

DIY Scrabble Tile Pillow I had been in a mood to redecorate.  I think being that we’ve been in the same place for 2 whole years I needed something to change.  LOL!  #Milspouseproblems Anyway, I had seen this somewhere.  I don’t remember if it was on Etsy, Pinterest or maybe on a blog.  I decided […]

runDisney Princess Half Marathon: My Ariel

Leading up to the runDisney Glass Slipper Challenge my 3 yr old decided that I should not be Snow White anymore…I should be Rapunzel.  Then as the race was about a month away, she decided that I should be Ariel.  Luckily for her, I wanted to make her smile and I didn’t have too hard […]

DIY Pacifier Clip

Nesting: Swaddle blanket

A while back a friend of mine asked me to make a swaddle blanket for a baby shower gift.  I had never seen one like this before but I (the worst swaddler ever!) was intrigued!  Here’s the original…  http://prudentbaby.com/2010/05/baby-kid/new-improved-diy-swaddle-blanket-2/   I made some changes to it just out of necessity and working through the thought […]

Nesting: Car seat blanket

There are so many ideas out there…so many ways to customize a certain concept.  I sat down and decided to combine a handful together to better suit our needs for a car seat blanket. Inspiration from… http://ahandmadechildhood.blogspot.com/2012/01/nesting-35-hooded-car-seat-blanket.html http://www.running-w-scissors.com/2011/03/car-seat-blanket.html http://www.imperfecthomemaking.com/2012/01/tutorial-hooded-car-seat-blankies.html My main concern with making one of these was the overheating issue we have had with […]
