"Hold Me" Onesie

This is the perfect onesie for babies who just want to be held!
Hold Me Onesie

For those who don't know what a fermata is, it's used in sheet music. When it's placed over a note, it means to hold that note (often for twice as long).

My 8 month old is in a phase where she's perfectly happy to be held, but will scream endlessly if we put her down...which is why this shirt is perfect for her! It's the only part of the song she knows right now :).

I made this using my Cricut Explore. To save money, I had it cut on shelf liner from the dollar store. I put the stencil I made on the shirt and used fabric paint.

This could work just as well with freezer paper, or heat-applied vinyl, and would be a fun baby shower gift for any of your friends who are musically inclined.

Here's my inspiration. I'll be linking up to Tip Me Tuesday at Tip Junkie.

Get Well Soon Card

Sometimes, when someone we love is sick or struggling, we feel helpless. It's hard to know what to say or do. Many times, they just need to know we are thinking about them. I hope that my friend's day was at least brightened a little when she got this "Get Well Soon Card" in the mail:
Get Well Soon Card
All it took was card stock, band-aids, googly eyes, glue, and some words of love and encouragement. A cute little handmade card to show your love.

What have you done to help someone you love feel better?
I got my inspiration from here. I'll be linking up to Tip Me Tuesday at Tip Junkie.

Couple/Maternity Costume: Peanuts

Last year, my husband and I featured my pregnant belly in our costumes for Halloween...we dressed as part of the Peanuts gang:
Couple Costume: Peanuts
For my husband, I turned a yellow shirt he had inside out and basted on some black fabric to make the zig-zag of Charlie Brown's shirt. He wore black short, long socks, a ball-cap and a baseball glove to complete his ensemble. A simple Charlie Brown costume.

For myself, I found a white maternity shirt, and quickly sewed on some eyes, ears, and a black pom-pom that I made out of yarn for Snoopy's nose. Our costumes were done within an hour and hardly cost us anything! A simple maternity costume. After Halloween, I took all the pieces off our shirts and we got to keep wearing them :).

Now to figure out what we're wearing this year...

Here's where I found my Snoopy inspiration. Here's how to make a pom-pom. I'll be linking up to Tip Me Tuesday at Tip Junkie.

5 Little Pumpkins Craft

My daughter fell in love with the book "5 Little Pumpkins" and asked me to read it to her again...and again...and again! So, I knew that this 5 Little Pumpkins Crafts would be perfect for her.
