Christening outfits

I'm almost finished with Thomas' outfit for Sunday.  I can't believe that I still have 1 more to make and maybe even making the hats and finishing Eva Rose's sweater.   I can't believe how quickly this Christening has come about.  We are having all 3 kids Christened on Sunday.  Then we are having everyone back to the house.  I can't believe that we are having a ton of people back to the house, but it will be fun to have everyone together.

Eva Rose's outfit

Off to work on the finishing touches to Michael's outfit!

I love to be creative!  I just don't have the time right now.  I am still working on Eva Rose's sweater for her Baptism and then to actually make the boys outfit!  Thankfully the patterns are simple.  Hopefully, they are going to look good and will look enough like Christening outfits.  Then I have to make a guest book for my sister's wedding and hopefully she'll like it.  Then I need to make halloween costumes for Eva Rose and Michael.  Hopefully, Thomas will be able to use Michael's from last year, but I am afraid that I will have to make one for him also.  We are planning on the kids all being characters from the Wizard of Oz.  I have a scarecrow and need to make Dorothy and either another scarecrow or lion, maybe 2!  Then there are the multiple scrapbooks for my wedding, and all the kids, never mind wanting to learn to make soap for the family!

So much to do and not enough time to do it!  I will try to find time to be creative and enjoy it not to just do it!

Cloth diapering and creating

I am mainly cloth diapering my 3 little ones and have for the last couple of months.  I do sometimes out them in disposables, but pretty much only my twins.  My 18 month old is always in cloth since he has such sensitive skin.  We have a decent amount of PULs and pre-folds, but I am considering making my own wool covers or fleece covers, even my own pre-folds.

I miss creating.  I want to make things for my children.  That has always been my wish, to be able to create things for my children and maybe at the same time make money creating.  Even if I can get myself to a point where I have the energy to create, that is my first goal.  I still still have to make the boys their Christening outfits and my daughter her sweater for her outfit.  I should actually stop writing this blog and start working on the sweater.  I also need to complete my sister's guest book for her wedding.  I am so looking forward to making that.  I love paper crafts.

There are so many things that I need/want to complete.  I am off to work on that sweater!

Way Back When-esday

I decided to join in on the fun with way back When-esday
Thomas and Eva Rose just days old
Thomas and Eva Rose now!
Ok, so not so way back, but such a change!
In just a little over 7 month these little guys have grown and changed so much.  They went through a lot to get here and then went through some sickness early on, but now they are healthy and strong.

Natural products

Here I am trying to be good and by products that are good for you and I end up buying things that still contain things that are harmful for you. I went to Whole Foods tonight and bought shampoo that I thought would be good. I should have listened to my instincts and put it back. I read the ingredient list and had concerns over some of the listed ingredients. I went home and looked up some of the ingredients that I had concerns over and I was right. How do you know when you are buying products that are safe. There is so much out there, but you don't know if it harmful or not! One more reason to make my own!

I did make some massage oil for my husbands legs. Hopefully this will help him when they are achy and he can't sleep or maybe this will help him not have achy legs. We'll have to wait and see!!

Hopefully I will be able to make my own products and hopefully I will learn more about aromatherapy!
