Making friends with my seam ripper

Today I really cracked down on my table-cloth/place mat sewing project. It was going well until I sewed the wrong sides together on place mats. Twice! I did this twice! It took me about 20 minutes each time to rip the seams out. Oh well…

Then I decided to start sewing project #2: turning a prefold diaper into a fitted diaper. I sewed the elastic in, and let’s just say that was also a fail. More time with my handy dandy seam ripper tool.

Oh! I did find out that I won a giveaway on another blog! So you see! It’s not impossible to win! I’m not a loser after all, hahah!

Also, I think one of the workers at the gym thinks I’m hitting on him. Did you ever accidentally make eye contact with someone too many times? Yup, that’s me. So awkward. You know, you’re walking by the desk, and you think the workers said something to you, so you look at them, only they’re not looking at you, but then they sense you’re looking at them, and they look at you looking at them, and it’s just really awkward? Yup, that’s me.

All right, well, I’m working on a few different blog posts at once, but none of them are ready to post tonight, so I’m keeping this short and sweet.

Don’t forget to enter the Hidden Treasure Candle giveaway and the Great Soft Bums giveaway. In just seven days, the Green Family giveaway blog hop starts. I’m super excited about that!

I’ve been slacking

My goal is to post every day, but yesterday I was just too tired to finish my post before bed. I was trying to go to bed early, but of course Mr. Stinky Pants sensed that, and it took me 2 hours to get him to sleep. Oh well! The bright side is that he slept two 4-hour periods in a row! That’s really good for him! AND we went to Walmart last night, so I picked up my favorite Starbucks iced coffee packets. Mmmmm. I’ve had one today so far, and I think I’m gonna have another. They’re just so delicious.


Here are a few things I’ve run across today (so far):

  1. has nursing apparel on sale. I picked up a long sleeve nursing top for the fall for about $26, including shipping. That’s still cheaper than Motherhood Maternity (online, at least), and I think this one’s cuter.
  2. Houswife Mama has a blogger opp coming up for $1 a link. Blogger opps are a great way to get your blog name out their and bring in readers. If you sign up…consider putting me down as your referral, because that would be really nice of you. =D
  3. This is gross.
  4. It’s almost Women’s Equality Day. As a Soldier, this list is awesome to see.
  5. The Knotted Pineapple is now on Facebook. Their custom products are adorable, and you have the chance to win one right here next month!!
  6. The blogger opp on Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog is still open for sign ups. It’s free!

I’ll be posting a list of newborn and preemie cloth diapers a little later today, so stay tuned!

Note: If you’re a Justin Bieber fan, and I’ve offended you…oh well.
