Tie and Suspender Onsie

I found this pin over at Pinterest and decided to make one for the new baby, for something cute to wear, (I will probably make another one for a friends wedding we will be going to later on in the year). I loved the idea, but I adjusted a few things such as the bottom of the suspenders I curved to match the curve of the onsie leg edging (just cut the fabric a little long, lay it in place and trace along the fabric using the edging underneath as a bumper for your curve then cut with scissors) and I didn't like the tie they had so I searched on line and found one I liked better (they actually gave me 2 sizes)
I also found this one

We have a wedding to go to in September so I might be making this in a bigger size for him to wear.

Coconut Diaper Ointment

I am going to give cloth diapering a shot this time around and you are not able to use commerical baby ointments I started asking my friends and sister who cloth diaper what they use as well as doing some research on my own on the internet.  Most ointments that are made for cloth diapering are SOOO expensive (~$9 per ounce!) so I decided to make my own diaper ointment.

1/8 c Coconut oil(extra virgin) -blend until whipped cream consistency

¼ c raw unrefined shea butter

3-5 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil

(arrowroot or talc-free cornstarch for thickening if needed)

Whip the coconut oil with a hand mixer or stand mixer. Melt the shea butter (just until melted) and pour into the mixer as it is going. Drop the tea tree oil in and any arrowroot if you need it. Place in a reusable container with a lid (you will want a small jar for your diaper bag as well. You can get various size jars at local pharmacies for a small fee usually, just ask or mason jars work well also.

Coconut Oil is antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial.  Tea Tree Oil is also antifungal, antibacterial and has healing properties. The Shea butter and arrowroot help with thickening and keeping it all together. The shea butter also helps as a protective barrier against the acidic urine and baby poop.

Some great websites I found are here and here and here

Faux Wainscotting and Bathroom redo

I redid our 1/2 bathroom and decided to try doing some faux wainscotting similar to this one I found over at Young House Love My walls have a subtle texture but I think it still looks great and was very easy to do and reasonable in cost. I think the whole room including paint cost us $60

Oh the places you go artwork

Oil Painting I did for Landon's room. I made this by cutting out letters and the plane shape using my silhouette machine on contact paper and placing the stickers where I wanted them and then painting the canvas. Once the paint dried I peeled off the stickers revealing the white canvas below. 

 You can see the letters I still need to peel off up above and down below.  Make sure you don't allow the stickers to slide to keep the letters crisp.

Muslin swaddle blankets

I saw a Pin on Pinterest about DIY Muslim blankets (some of them like the Aden and Anais can go for $30+)
