Thursday, October 21, 2010 take 2

Well I put it on my little bug tonight, she's wearing it to bed. I stuffed it with a prefold again, and I think it's because I'm not used to double snap wings that it feels weird to me. Lol. My kids all have a very narrow, long waist and a short rise.. just like me. Hard for me to find clothes that fit just right.

It is a tad wide across the crotch.. but it looks like it will hold REALLY WELL!!

I will definitely be using it at night for Zoe again. :)
I REALLY appreciate the product.. and would definitely recommend it. :)

white elephant gift :)

I have known Lynn Wilson of White Elephants for a while, and i've been checking out her fabulous wool crocheted items.. longies, play food, etc.. for a while now.

So when my wool dryer balls started falling apart.. I needed to find someone to see if they could save the yarn and make something from them. Lynn offered to do it for me. :)

Luckily most of the yarn was fine to use. :) It was good enough for a diaper cover, which is fine with me.. I just wanted them to be made into pants.
She kept telling me she was having fun making them.. and even sent me pics of the progress. They were looking great!

I got them in the mail TODAY and promptly took pics and put them on my little girl. THEY FIT PERFECT! I want to say a huge thank you to Lynn Wilson of White Elephants for helping me.. and wanted to let you know that because of her customer service, and her awesome work.. I will definitely be refering people to her store!!

A very cool idea. :) Upcycled tshirts into a cotton pocket that fits every size!
I bought it to try for my 4.5 year old who still wets a LOT at night.

Since so far, cotton has worked best for us.
I stuffed it with a prefold and snapped it around her.. and she took off. lol.
My hyper child.

It seemed to fit her ok.. her butt was quite large LOL. She has a TINY butt.
She said it was uncomfortable for her, so we didn't get to use it at night.. but she's very sensitive, also. This diaper should work fine for anyone who doesn't have very sensitive skin. At least in my experience. :) I used to use tshirt diapers on my now 3.5 year old.. so i'm keeping it around, hoping i can use it on my 2 year old, who is now the only one in diapers. It would prob work perfectly as a night time diaper for her!! I am going to try that next.
I like the construction of this diaper, thought I have never owned anything with double wing snaps. Might be why I wasn't "feeling" it.

The company has GREAT customer service, and VERY fair prices. I also like that there are MANY size settings on the front, so you can get a truly customized fit, and the pocket has elastic all the way around. I recommend trying a tshirt diaper, because as we all know.. cotton is by far one of the most breathable materials. Often better on baby's butt.

gotta love RUFFLES

I was at first intrigued by the name Daffe Designs.
Wondered what she was making. ;)

Come to find out, she's got a fabulous variety of ruffled bloomers, baby shoes, embroidery work, lovies, babylegs and more!

I was sent this beautiful pair of bloomers in size 18 mth for my Zoe to try out. I am LOVING the ruffles on my little bugs butt. :)
And the embroidered name is beautiful! I love purple.. and so far, that seems to be Zoe's color.
You should check it out. I bet you'll find something for your little one!

Wool for baby!

CCBaby has been a great company for quite some time now.. and I finally got up the guts to ask if they did reviews.. and TADA.. they said yes!!
I'm SO excited.. we got to pick out the wool, and because these wool longies were for my 3.5 year old to wear under her dresses to keep warm (or to bed, whatever she prefers).. and she's an animal lover, I asked if they could ad a horse to it.. and again.. they said yes!

So after perusing and choosing the wool that I wanted, and a speedy delivery later.. we now are PROUD owners of a BEAUTIFUL pair of CCBaby woolies :)

Alivia (my 3.5 year old) almost squealed when she saw the horse. Lol.
She promptly put them on and modeled them for me.. after I had to hold her at bay while I took "before" pictures. She is very happy with them... which has made me very happy with them. :)
Check out the fanpage, pick out your wool, and see for yourself how beautiful and warm they are!

Make bath time FUN TIME!

I got a bath time fun set for my 4 year old.. so it was something for her being a "big girl".
When it came in the mail, i let her open the package and you cannot BELIEVE how happy it made her, to have something of her own for her bath time. A roller body paint/soap, a wash cloth, and the wrapping turned into a bracelet for her.. so the WHOLE package was something she could use!
This mama puts together the cutest things.. not JUST for big kids!

Support the Cause!

I honestly don't remember how I stumbled upon this mama's beautiful items. It could be because I was checking out breast cancer awareness.. and her complete store is donated to promoting the cause.

I think it's really cool what this mom is doing. Every item she sells, 20% of the profit goes towards a local breast cancer charity. And the headband that I received for this is just one example of the beautiful work she does.

It's a simple wire headband, wrapped with gold ribbon, and is embellished with CROCHETED ribbon, with some beautiful little pearls added to give it a simple, fun, timeless look.
I have to admit, I was a little worried that the lightweight of the headband wouldn't stay in my hair very well.. but after I'd had it on for even 10 minutes, I forgot I was wearing it! lol. Very comfortable, not so tight it pinches, like a lot of the commercial plastic ones do.
It's VERY well made.. and among the other beautiful items she makes are more beautiful crocheted creations!
My eldest daughter fell in love with this when she saw it. She thought it looked like a little bird nest. LOL. So I had to let her try it on. And guess what?? It was PERFECT for her. She has a tendency to play with her headbands, and a lot of times, she breaks them, because of the cheap plastic. I didn't even worry about this one AT ALL because even at first site, I could tell it was well made and very sturdy. She wore it for a good hour, and even though she's a rambunctious child, and all over the place.. it slipped around a little.. but was GREAT! And totally matched her personality. :)

There are other beautiful crocheted headbands stocked in the etsy store right now, there is a crocheted RUFFLED purse, breast cancer ribbon ornaments.. and more very unique, one of a kind pieces!
You have GOT to see these items. :)

Eye Candy

I stumbled upon this fanpage by accident a few months ago through a friend from high school.. and I was like "eye candy, what?" :)
I was looking through her stuff and at first didn't believe it was handmade, it looked so great.

I ended up contacting the owner through facebook about some of the products, and they agreed to send me a few pieces to write a review about!
I was only expecting a piece or two to be sent to me.. but when I got them in the mail, they had sent me 5 items!
3 beautiful bracelets, and a necklace/choker and ring set!

My favorite one so far is the glass heart bracelet. It goes with EVERYthing.
And another thing that I'm loving about their work is that fact that I have small wrists and these beautiful pieces ARE NOT FLOPPY ON ME! That's always a plus in my situation, cause I usually have to take a piece or two out of jewelry or watches. I can NEVER find a bracelet that fits right. So these are GREAT sizes.

These was a small piece on the necklace/choker that looked like it might have been sticking out too much, and I was worried it might poke me.. but because it blends with the rest of the beads, I couldn't even tell. So all in all, I'm very happy with the company. :)

These are fantastic pieces at REALLY good prices.. I think anyone would LOVE to own at LEAST one of these. There are necklaces, rings, earrings, chokers, bracelets..
