New Year = New Ideas

I'm sure all my customers and fans are wondering what I am doing during my "time off". I have to chuckle, because I don't get much time off with three kids under the age of four! But with my husband home and awaiting our new destination, I have been brainstorming while he has been writing! Now, we don't get ALL day for our hobbies, but the kids do play together or watch and occasional movie, which gives us a little break from playing (fighting), building towers and puzzles.

I personally like to look around Pinterest. I find ideas and inspiration there. Most of the time my ideas come out of necessity! I'm always trying to make things easier in our house, whether it's organization or a little something to stick in my diaper bag for going out.

So for the New Year, I plan to brainstorm and test out a few new ideas! Watch my Facebook Page for pictures of my experiments and as always PLEASE leave comments!

Happy New Year!
My store will reopen in 2012!

Cheers,

Need Stocking Stuffers?

Stocking stuffers are so hit or miss! Sometimes I find inexpensive things for my kids' stockings and sometimes I spend more money in stocking stuffers than presents! Yikes!

Well here is a simple item that is sure to please! Heck, get one for the hubby, too! It's a soap saver! A little sack you put a bar of soap in and the kids won't lose it in the tub and you won't have to deal with the tiny sticky pieces of soap left over! Busy Bee Boutique sells them for $3 each.....but YOU can make your own!

DIY Soap Saver: Tutorial

  1. You know all those washcloths you get when you have a new baby? Or you "stock up" on when they are on sale, but become buried in them? They make PERFECT soap savers! Take one and fold it in half. If it's too small to fold in half, place two together with the "good" sides facing each other.
  2. Stitch up two sides (if folded) and 3 sides if you used two washcloths. This will form a pouch with an opening at the top. Turn it inside out and you have a soap saver sack.
  3. Place a bar of soap inside! And you are done! If you would like you can add velcro to the top to be sure the soap stays in the sack!
Enjoy "saving" your soap!
