Yard Work in Progress - Part 1

    I’m pretty excited we are having a garden and planting flowers this year, so I thought I would share some before, during, and after pictures of our yard since this is, after all, a blog about going green. ;) 
Note: We just bought and moved into our house last April. I was more worried about growing a baby at the time, so all of the landscaping was pre-existing. We are just beginning to spiff it up!
I didn't actually get a before picture of this area in front. This is AFTER I raked all of the leaves out and no, it's not that tiny pile sitting there either! It was like a clown car, but with leaves. 
This little area around the tree looks a LOT better just having my husband weed eat it!
This area is small, but it was a hot mess! There was an aloe plant (I think) underneath all of that, plus the big one in the pot it came from along with a cactus. Unfortunately, there were several other potted plants in various parts of the yard too. Who leaves potted plants outside?! Needless to say the pots (cheap plastic kind) were falling apart  and I just dumped most of them in the compost pile we started. 
This was probably the most fun out of all of the areas I worked on. It was basically just a thick blanket of weeds and leaves...And the weed eater crapped out on my husband right before he started here. Guess who ended up raking it all out? Honestly, though, I enjoyed it. It was nice being out in the yard and actually getting a work out of sorts. Oh, and believe it or not, there are rocks under there outlining where the bed is at! 
The beginning of our compost pile, which consists of a Christmas tree and leaves at this point. These are just the leaves from the front yard. You should have seen it AFTER we dumped all of the stuff from the previous picture in there! I swear it at least doubled in size.
Finally, this is where we're going to set our garden up. Yes, we are terracing it since the major downfall of our back yard is that it is on a slope. Welcome to Arkansas! ha ha

DIY Wednesday: Easter Photo Project

Thanks for stopping by to check out my first DIY Wednesday! I haven’t decided yet, but I will probably be posting these every other week or once monthly. They WILL include some handy stuff too, like how to make household cleaners, baby items, and stuff like that, but the first few are going to be more craft related because I’m just in a crafty mood!
    Today’s project I actually did a year ago, but with Easter coming up shortly I felt like sharing this and hope you guys enjoy it! I would love to hear your feedback.
1)     Make sure you have enough eggs to a) spell out whatever name or word you would like (I used my daughter’s name) or b) dye as many different colors as you desire.
2)     Boil your eggs and color them however you would normally. We used good ole vinegar and food coloring for our dye and just made each egg a single, solid color. I like employing the K.I.S.S. method for most things in life. (Keep It Simple Stupid.) ;) I wouldn’t suggest putting any glitter or anything like that on them if you decide to use stickers.
3)     After your eggs are nice and dry, you can either paint the letters on your eggs or use stickers. The stickers I used were kind of thick. I would recommend the ones that are flat and somewhat flimsy so they will adhere and bend better to fit the shape of the egg. I also highly recommend not doing this on a rainy/humid day like I did. It certainly didn’t help the sticker situation, although the dew/rain drops can add a nice effect.
4)     Set your finished eggs in front of different, interesting textures (i.e. shutters, wood planks, gravel, etc. I think this would be neat for a boy’s name.) or different plants/outdoorsy things like flowers, bushes, trees. Whatever you like! You don’t have to of course, but I think it looks more interesting if each egg/letter is in front of a different material.
5)     Picture time! Try to get a close up picture without too much glare of each egg. (Gotta love digital cameras so you can see what they look like and delete the ones that don’t turn out how you like!)
6)     Print out your pictures and do whatever you like with them. I’ll be honest, I STILL haven’t done anything with mine yet. I was going to use them to spell out my daughter’s name and frame them and hang them on the wall in her bedroom, but I ended up painting wooden letters for that. I do have several ideas of what you could do with them. A) Get larger than normal prints and either frame each letter individually to spell out your word or name or put all of the letters in the same frame and use for a decoration. B) Print up the pictures and use them in a baby or scrapbook. How cute, fun, and unique would that be? C) Print them on sticker/adhesive paper and let your child use them to play with. D) Use them on Easter pictures. Add them to the pictures themselves using a photo editing program or print out sticker ones and add them to your photos. E) Personalize your child’s Easter basket with them.

Here are some of the ones I made last year. I just love them!

Review - 529 Baby Semi-Custom Medium Wet Bag

    I recently purchased another great product that I felt like sharing with you guys. It came just in time, too! With my daughter going to a babysitter now that I am working again, I finally decided to give in and purchase a wet bag.
    Lately I have been trying to get better about purchasing from small businesses and companies who make their products in the good ole U.S. Someone on my Facebook page had mentioned 529 Baby, so I checked out her website and decided to give her wet bags a try.
    Not that she didn’t already have some really cute ones made and ready to ship, but I decided to get mine in a fun tie-dye print. She has many other fabrics to choose from too if you decide to go that route. I ordered a medium sized one and it is very generously sized in my opinion. We are still using pre-folds and covers for the most part and I could fit at least 2 days worth of pre-folds and 2-3 covers in it. I think that’s pretty good! I probably could have stuffed more in, but that just seemed icky to me to pack it that full. (This is my first experience with a wet bag and I’m still trying to get used to it!)
    I haven’t really had a chance to ask Myka’s babysitter how she liked it yet, but we did get to try it out on an impromptu trip to where I grew up in Indiana, which is about a 13-15 hour drive from where we live now.  Yikes, right? The thought of having to change a poopy diaper in public along with carrying around a wet bag and all that fun stuff has scared the crap out of me from the beginning, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought. The wet bag came in really handy. We had no problems at all with leaks and it kept the odor in great! (Definitely a bonus on that long of a car ride with a 5 month old!)
    One of my main concerns was how it would hold up after washing it a few times, but it has exceeded my expectations! It looks just as good as the day it arrived in the mail. J
    There are a few other nice things about her wet bags I would like to add, one of which are the handles. I love the snap handles! They make it easy to carry and to hang on a door nob or towel rack. If you order a semi-custom large bag you can choose between 3 different handle styles. Nifty! I also like that the PUL material on the inside is made in the U.S. She also makes kitchen and mama cloth wet bags, pail liners, toddler bibs, and produce bags. Last, but not least, she even included two 10% off coupon codes for my next purchase. It was also nice that the care instructions were printed on the coupon as well.
    So, if you’re in the market for a wet bag in the near future, I highly recommend 529 Baby! Affordable prices for quality products made here right in the U.S.!

"Amateur" Photographer...

    More like "immature" photographer (hardy har), but does anyone else like to dress your kids up and pretend you're an amateur photographer? As you may have gathered, one of the main reasons I like to make home, hygiene, and baby items myself is to cut costs where possible. My penny pinching habits don't stop there, though.
    I have loved taking pictures for as long as I can remember and now that I have my daughter I especially love taking pictures of her, of course. However, I'm starting to wonder if I have gone too far with it, even though I don't really care if I have. :D While I respect professional photographers, I have thought for a long time that most of their prices are absurd! With that being said and being the tight wad that I am, I've not had any professional (or amateur) photos taken for any of the special events in my adult life that most people do. My husband and I didn't have any engagement pictures taken. The few family members we had at our wedding took our "wedding pictures". I never had any newborn or family photos taken when my daughter was born. My family and I took them. I have continued this pattern with her Christmas photos and soon Easter photos.
    Sure, professional ones look a lot more, well, professional, but I think doing it yourself is just as nice for several reasons. 1) You can take them whenever you want so you can catch your child in a good mood! 2) You're the one trying to make them smile or laugh, so they're probably more likely to do it for you than some stranger making stupid faces. ;) 3) It saves SO MUCH MONEY! You can make as many copies as you want and it should still be cheaper than having someone else do them. 4) You can use whatever props you want. 5) You can always edit them yourself with free photo editing programs like Gimp. 6) Personally, I like doing it myself because they seem more natural; baby is more relaxed and acting like normal and is in her usual environment. Maybe I'm just a fan of candids. :)
    I didn't intend on turning this post into some sort of diy crusade, although it appears that happened anyways. :D I'm certainly not trying to make anyone feel bad or mad about getting professional pictures taken either. But, if you're a cheapo like me, just give it a try one day. I actually had a lot of fun when I did Myka's Christmas pictures. (I think I was having more fun than she was at one point.) I'm still curious, though, do any of you do anything like this? I'd love to hear your thoughts or ideas!

    These are just a few. As you can see, I could have spiffed them up more and taken more time to make them look better, but I'm impatient and she was only 2 months old at the time so she was too! lol The bottom one I actually had my graphic designer friend fix for me. She does fantastic work on all sorts of things. Here is the link to her page if you're interested:

Review - Charlie Banana 2-in-1 Bamboo Diaper Liners & Wipes

            In case you haven’t seen, Target is now selling Charlie Banana brand diapers and some accessories! I’ll be honest, I have not tried any of these diapers personally, but I have heard good things about them from a friend. While checking out the products they are selling at Target the other day, I came across these bamboo diaper liners. I HAD to try them out!
            I can be rather picky and hard to please at times, but I honestly have NOTHING bad to say about these liners! First of all, they are very soft. They kind of remind me of dryer sheets in the way they look, just a lot softer. (And not full of chemicals, of course.) I love that they’re made from bamboo, but was also kind of surprised because they are flushable! Even better, they are super thin so it doesn’t add any extra bulk to baby’s diapers! This is a big plus for me because my poor child already has enough bulk going on down there. They come in a fairly compact box, so you still have plenty of room at your changing station or could even put them in your diaper bag. The box I bought has 100 pieces and I believe the price was around $10. I thought that was a pretty good deal considering I only use them for the anticipated “poopy time”. That brings me to my next perk of these liners.
            You’re probably wondering, “Ok, so how do they hold up?” Like I said, I don’t actually use the Charlie Banana diapers; I am still using prefolds, flatfolds, and covers. The liners still work nicely with these! With them being so thin, you are still going to have some poo to wash off of whatever diaper you are using if your baby doesn’t have really solid poops, but they do seem to help with staining. I like these because you can just toss these with the poop into the toilet and flush all of it instead of having a battle of poo vs. sprayer (or whatever method of diaper rinsing you use). ;) These can also be wetted and used as wipes, although I have not tried that. I highly recommend you check these out and give them a try yourself!

Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with Charlie Banana in any way, shape, or form. I was not paid to write this review and all opinions expressed within are my own. I was not sent this product to review; I bought it myself and decided to write a review on them simply because I thought they were a great product and wanted to share. J
