Toothbrush Holder

Our four children share a bathroom.  I'm sure you can imagine how nasty it can get in there.  And with a crazy two year old around, things tend to get even worse - nothing like catching him throwing toothbrushes into the toilet while sucking down a tube of toothpaste.  *sigh*

While perusing Pinterest, I found this:

Pretty stinkin' cool if you ask me.  But I needed one with four separate jars.  I showed this photo to my hubby, handed him the jars and off he went, into that magical place called a "wood shop".  About an hour later, he returned with this bad boy:




















Four separate jars, one for each kiddo.  Yes, they each have their own toothpaste.....one likes mint, another needs no fluoride, etc.  The kids love it.  And the best part?  The two year old can't reach it.  Bwahahahaa.....

Squishable Newborns

Like I mentioned in this post, I have been branching out by making little photo props for newborns.  This has been a lot of fun for me.  Here are pictures of some of my finished work (HUGE thanks to Courtney Lorenz Photography for all of these great photos):

Super soft and fluffy Pom Pom Mini Blankets are wonderful photo props for laying under those precious babies.



Here is a crocheted headband - prefect for a little princess.



A simple but cute little gnome style hat.  I'll be making matching diaper covers for these, too.



Legwarmers!  So cute and cozy.  I'll also be making matching headbands for these.



Last but not least - these cutie patootie pom pom hats.


Now, if only I could concentrate long enough to make a bunch more and get them listed in my shop......
