"Poopy" Clutch

I hate having to take my entire diaper bag to the bathroom to change my baby's diaper. So, I was on-line the other day and found this tutorial for a 'clutch' the perfect size for diapers...This size is perfect for a package of wipes, and 1 of each size of diaper that I need.
I love, however, that when it's closed you can't even tell what's in it - it's just a fun looking 'clutch'.

Shower Curtain

I finished my new Shower Curtain!

It's hard to see the whole here are some 'side' shots! I cannot decide whether to keep the multi-colored rings for the shower curtain or get black and white ones...

Diaper "Cake"

Have you ever seen those diaper "cakes" that people sell? I decided to try to make one the other day for a baby shower that I am going to this week.
This is my final product!
It was actually a lot easier than you would think. The hardest part was tying the ribbons around the diapers and keeping them together while tying it! So, if you ever need a good gift - these are awesome.

Christmas Stockings

My mom made these SUPER cool stocking about 3 years ago for Christmas. I just love them, but figured that it was time that I "personalize" them for the kids... So I finally put their names on their stockings :)

Bathroom Clock

So, after reading an article done by the "Today Show" about plastic in the bathrooms, I decided that this is the perfect chance for me to re-do my bathroom - which I have wanted to do for a LONG time!
The article was saying that having plastic shower curtains and plastic shower liners is NOT good. It is "encouraging" mold and mildew and yucky stuff in the bathrooms and can make the kids super sick.
So, I decided that I wanted to re-do my bathroom in black and white...something that I have wanted to do for a LONG time. So, I have'll be a slow process but once I'm done I think it'll look really cool!!
This is the clock that's in my bathroom now. It used to say "Potty Time", but I thought that this was more appropriate :)
Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives you a fairy tale.

Snowman Magnets

I got this idea from my mom. She made some really cute alphabet letters, and I thought that I would one-up her and try to make some Snowman Magnets. Here's what i came up with...
The pictures are a little fuzzy, but it's the best I could get for some reason!I am also working on some alphabet letters, and will post those when they're all done!
Thanks a TON for the idea, mom!

Picture Frames

I took some dang cute pictures of the kids the other day, but couldn't find any picture frames that I really liked to put them in. So, rather than spending lots of money on a frame that I only kinda liked, I spent $2 and made some that I love...

Silly Birds

I have finally finished some of my silly birds. I decided to change mine up a little bit, because I wanted to make them more "me". So, I added some feathers to the end of my birds. I cheated and figured out how to sew them on the sewing machine so that I did not have to hand sew my birds.

Bangle Bracelets

The other day, I was reading a flier in my mail and saw these really cute "make-your-own bangle bracelets". I thought, what a cute idea...especially because I need some cute ideas for my girls in Young Women. So, I bought a few, and this is what I came up with...
Any suggestions for additional bracelets would be most appreciated :)
