Cloth Diaper reviews

Just wanted to let you all see this, this lady is doing a cloth diaper review, I'm interested to see which ones she likes best, although I don't think she is testing the gDiapers, which are what I use and like the best, I use the gCloth inserts and they work better than any I've tried. Here is a link to her review:

15 Minute Tackle

I may be a little late, but I'm going to commit to doing the 15 minute tackle with The Domestic Contessa , I'm going to focus on Laundry, if I spend at least 15 minutes a day, maybe I can catch up on the laundry, especially because my little girl is going on vacation and she will need clothes to take with her :) Here is a link to the post if you would like to join too!

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!!

For almost a week now, I've just been bursting with joy. I'm not sure exactly what has changed in my life, all I know is that God has placed joy in my heart and I'm so thankful for the change it has made in me. I want to spend time with people and laugh and have a good time. I'm enjoying each moment with my kids, rejoicing in every smile and cherishing every hug. I'm filled with love for my husband that is richer and stronger than it's ever been. I'm just so thrilled to have life and love and a beautiful, healthy family. I'm going to hang on to this joy as long as I can and pray that God keeps refilling my joy in times that it gets hard: Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I say, Rejoice!!

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

I'm a follower of Stay At Home Mommy A.K.A. Babychaser. She reminds me of myself in many ways, on of which being she has a son that is 3 months older than my daughter, and a baby girl that is a year older than Anthony. I find comfort and encouragement when reading her blog, because she is in the same season of life that I am, at home with toddlers, making messes :). But today's blog was more than I could ask for. I had a rough day today, it took me until 1pm to finish getting dressed and ready for the day, and broke down in tears when my daughter put a brand new roll of toilet paper in the sink (she's done this about 10 times although I've never caught her in the act, just found the soaking toilet paper roll). Needless to say, everything about my day was frustrating me, and more than once I grumbled or complained about something, I called my husband to let him know of my frustrations a couple times (which I know just blesses his day). I got through the day however, and Alissa was just a sweetheart, telling me it's okay mommy, don't cry, lets read this book, it'll be fun!, patting my back saying, shh shh shh. But now as I'm going to bed, I sit and read this post and the post by Kristin and I'm inspired to give God my frustrations and get rid of my bad attitude. Psalm 19:14 is one of my favorite bible verses:

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.

This is my prayer and verse for this year

Sewing or Scrapbooking, How about Sewing while Scrapbooking?

My mom told me today that she's not interested in sewing right now, she wants to scrapbook... So I started wondering if you could sew while scrapbooking, So here are some tutorials for sewing on scrapbook pages:

This looks like a lot of fun!! I like the looks of the hand stitching better than the machine stitching. Enjoy!

Purse organizers, are they worth it?

I've seen these on the internet a lot when looking for tutorials, Has anybody ever used one of these before?

Here is a tutorial for it, I've seen another one that uses interfacing instead of batting, depends on if you want it stiffer or not..

Here is a slightly more complicated version of this, which I find interesting: These are the kinda things that make me want to take these and create one that fits exactly what I would need it to do (Hold diapers, and bottles, and baby food :) )! That's what I enjoy the most about sewing is letting my creativity take something and make it better :)
