Tutorial Tuesday: Carseat cover (tent)

I have seen these carseat covers everywhere,
and knew I wanted to have one for our baby.
But they can be pretty pricey,
so I was happy to find these tutorials!
I finished up my own several weeks ago
but we haven't taken the carseat out of the box yet...
so no pictures of mine just yet.

The first tutorial is from While They Sleep
and can be found here.

The next tutorial is from Hippos and Dinosaurs,
and can be found here.

And I also really like this one from Small Fry and Co,
you can find it here.

These would make a great and simple shower gift!

Tutorial Tuesday: Changing Pad and Wipes Holder

I'll admit that right now I'm partial to tutorials for baby items.
Especially since I've got less than a month before our little one should arrive.
So I may just attempt this (just not in pink),
even though I have a million other things to do
before we're ready for him to come!

But you have to admit that this is a great idea!
You can find the tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew right here.

PS Since items from my shop are made after orders are placed I want to make sure that all orders are able to be shipped before my baby arrives, so my shop will be closing for maternity leave probably at the end of the week. Be sure to place your orders before then!

Love this song-- All About Your Heart by Mindy Gledhill

Last February I attended a benefit concert for NieNie
by Mindy Gledhill.
My very favorite song of the night wasn't available anywhere.

Clip of my favorite song from the concert:

But I just found it on Playlist.
I'm so excited, I just love this song:

Add to a playlist More from this artist

OK, I can no longer find it on playlist, but you can hear it on youtube:

Flickr Friday: Ready for Spring!

Are you all familiar with Flickr?
I love their tagline, "Share your photos, watch the world."
People from all over the world upload photos on flickr, for everyone to see.
And there are some amazing photos!

Today this photo titled
Green Softness
caught my eye.
We've had snow yesterday and today,
and we are just SO ready for
Spring to finally arrive.
This photo, to me, says Spring!

Do you have a flickr photo to share?
Leave a comment with the link to your photo or post!

PS My shop will be closing sometime in the middle of March (it's coming quickly!!) while I take maternity leave, so be sure to place your orders before then!
