DIY Birthday Invitations

Even though we’re having a very small, very low-key first birthday party for my daughter, I couldn’t resist making invitations for our family members, and one for her scrapbook (that I really need to get started!).I was totally inspired by Rambling Renovators Party Planning post, where she posted her own daughter’s first birthday invitation using the free petal envelope download from I Still Love You. I asked if she minded if I stole her idea and she said to go ahead, so I did. I love how they turned Read more […]

Flip Cloth Diapers ~ my personal review

The Diaper:Flip One-Sized diapers. They are a “diapering system” that has 3 different inserts that you can buy to use inside of the covers (stay-dry, organic cotton and disposable). Below is Ashlyn at about 11 months and 21 pounds in Ribbit.What I like:very trim diapers – almost as thin as a disposable on the bigger settingssuper easy to use since there is no pocket to stuff; you just tuck the insert (which you fold down to the right size using the stiched on markers) inside of the cover.the stay-dry Read more […]

One Hand Washes The Other ~ Review & Giveaway

One Hand Washes The Other is a store run out of Canton, CT that was created by Becca after the bath products she makes started taking over her accessories store, White Flag Designs.

For review, I was able to try some of her best selling items: a solid scent, lip butter, Sweet Cream Emulsifying Sugar Scrub, and a Whipped Bathing Creme. The solid scent comes in a tube similar to a lip Read more […]

Happy Heinys Cloth Diapers ~ my personal review

The Diaper:Happy Heinys One Size. These diapers are a little different from the other one-size diapers that I have because they have 4 different size settings, instead of the more common 3 sizes. Ashlyn is just about nine months old here and around 20 pounds, and she’s on the highest set of snaps.What I like:the prints are adorable! Seriously, I bought these purely because of the “Silly Monkey” pattern.The side tabs are way longer than any other diaper I’ve tried, and they are made to overlap, Read more […]

Blueberry/Swaddlebees Cloth Diapers ~ my personal review

The Diaper:Blueberry/Swaddlebees One-Size Pocket Diapers. I know that Blueberry and Swaddlebees are technically two different brands made by the same company, but I ordered most of my diapers through the Blueberry website when they were having a sale and while I know I ordered both brands, all of my diapers say Blueberry. I believe this is a Swaddlebees, taken last August when she was 14 weeks old (probably 13-ish pounds). What I like: the hemp/microfiber inserts are some of the best I’ve ever used! Read more […]
