Hooter Hiders are here!!!

So I actually got this Hooter Hider done before Thanksgiving for our Marvelous Moms Showcase but didnt have time to get it posted. I think it turned out pretty well. I'll have to make one for next time I have a baby. Now I just need to get sewing on the fabric I bought for more. The finished project measures about 42" long by 24" high.

I'm still here

Yes I am still here. For those of you that dont know me, I tend to make a lot of gifts for Christmas and this year was no exception. Now that the holiday season is over (we only had Christmas at home being snowed in since Dec 24 with 18" of snow and 10-15' drifts) I have time to show you what I have been up to.

Every year I make an ornament for my neice, nephews, sisters, brother and now the sitters kids. This year it was snowmen.

Aren't they SO cute?

I also made a special ornament for my nephews 1st Christmas.

Hopefully I have time yet today to get downstairs to work on something. I have been lazy the last few days and not crafting but I figured I deserved a break for a few days after Chrismas too.

swaddling baby

Thanks SO much B for the pic of your little guy in his blanket. My babies are past the swaddle stage, even though it lasted for a good 5 months (til I found them on their side in their crib). But I loved it SO much. They always slept SO SO well. Thru the night at 1 month (well most of the night, most of the time). I think this helps with that. They cant startle themselves awake. These are big enough to use for such a long time and if you wrap right even the squirmyist baby has a hard time getting out.

a zizzle being loved

My kids LOVE their zizzles. I bet you guys are wondering where in the world I got that name? zizzle??? When I was little I sucked my thumb but ONLY if I had the satin blanket binding to rub between my fingers. Mom says that I named that blanket binding zizzle and it stuck. That is always been called at our house. Now any ribbon that makes the same feeling is a zizzle ribbon. Try it, the feeling is kinda relaxing. (at least to me)

Here we go

This is a paci/toy clip. My youngest didnt take a paci so we use them to keep toys from falling on the floor
My BIG swaddle blanket and a better burp cloth. This may be biased but I think they are the BEST blankets to use since you can actually use them past the time baby is over 2 months old. The burp cloths also STAY on your shoulder

And my kids favorite??? Their Zizzle blankies. Tags, lovies, whatever you call them. My kids have a favorite ribbon that they always seem to find and play with.

I always said that I didnt have time to do facebook yet here I am creating a blog. But this is another outlet for my crafts and cards. Check back to see if I can get it all figured out.
