Yes, it can be done. I would never have thought to sew my own sheets, but this crib and toddler sheet tutorial from Made is a great way to get exactly the match you need for your baby’s room.

Everywhere we go, my baby is saying: “baby” (or “huh huh” as she’s not quite talking!) But she let’s me know where all the babies in the grocery store are with a pointing motion and a smile. Since she’s so happy looking at babies everywhere we go, I came up with a fun DIY Magazine […]

I just found this movie clip over at Clover Lane, (who has a fun crafty blog. Check out these Winter Decorations!) Although this movie isn’t out yet, I know I’m going to love every minute of it. It’s a documentary about 4 babies growing up in 4 different parts of the world. It’s going to […]

So far, there are only boys in my family, so when faced with several approaching baby showers for female babies, my mom and I were only too overjoyed to experiment with making barrettes and headbands. We wanted to make hair adornments with newborns and infants in mind, so we experimented with several different styles, sizes, […]

I have diapers, wipes and a changing cloth in almost every room of my house. If I’m downstairs, I’m just too lazy to walk up to the baby’s room and get the diaper changing supplies. So I’ve got this fun Ribbon Container to hold them in, embellished with ribbon all fun and fancy. Supplies for […]
