Bad Blogger, Bad!

I've been a terribly negligent blogger since little Asher was born! Here are just a few things I've been creating since my last post:

Crinkle Toys

Custom I Spy Pillow

Custom Change Pads

Crinkly Teething BonBons

Custom Bandana Bibs

Teething/Nursing Necklaces

Custom Doll Wraps

Gnome Stackers

See?!? I've been busy! If you're trying to keep up with Bug & Bird, come find me on Facebook. I'm less negligent there!

Instant Embellished Onesies For Summer

Summer with a baby under 6 months is tricky because they're too little for sunscreen. After a bit of research, I decided on long sleeve white onsesies with UV babylegs and a sunhat to keep babe covered and cool. The only problem is that white onesies are bo-ring!

So, I did what any crafty mama would do and dove into my fabric stash! I cut darling little scraps out of my favorite fabrics and zig zag stiched them on. I didn't want them to look the same, all sewn in the center of the chest, so one has a tiny fox on the 'breast pocket' and another has a coordinating embellishment on the back as well.

So far, they've been awesome for keeping Asher cool and safe. Plus, it's a great scrap-stash buster.

I wish I was able to get better photos, but we are constantly using them!

Back to Work and Baby Bibs

Mat leave sure has some grey areas when you work from home! I've been slowly getting back to crafting after the arrival of little Asher. He's a pretty drooly guy, which has inspired me to whip up a big stack of bibs for him.

A Simple, Practical Dinner Gift Basket

Some friends of ours are in the middle of a stressful move, and to add a little support, we made a simple dinner basket up for them. I think this would be a great gift for a new mom, if someone has family in the hospital or just needs a bit of lovin'.

I just layered spinach salad (heaviest ingredients at the bottom!) in a large mason jar, added a pretty loaf of bread and some poppy seed dressing on the side and popped it into a basket. Simple, beautiful and helpful. I'll definitely do this again!

Ingredients, in order from bottom up:
Mushrooms, sliced
Grape Tomatoes, whole
Grated Cheddar
Hard boiled Egg (one and a half), sliced
Bacon, diced
Lots of baby spinach

Will keep in the refrigerator for 2-5 days depending on how fresh the ingredients are.

Wands, Pop-Tops and Blackboards: Oh My!

Here's a little sneak peek of a few of the new items I'll be bringing along to my only Holiday craft sale of 2012 on December 1st. There will be at least one more new item debuting at the sale. I'll also be sponsoring a Magnet-decorating fundraiser for Attachment Parenting Village Calgary. The magnets will make a great gift for kids to give to grandparents, siblings or friends. Hope to see you at the Sunalta Community Center from 10-3 on the 1st!
