Diaper trike

I actually made this a while ago for a friend's baby shower, but just stumbled upon the pics. I got the idea from a listing on Etsy and added some extra details. Bear with the pics - I took them long before I thought I'd be sharing them with anyone (yeek!).

The trike includes:
30 diapers
2 receiving blankets
2 bibs
1 bottle
1 washcloth
1 pair infant socks
1 stuffed bear
I thought about putting a onesie on the stuffed bear too but decided against it.

Thanks for looking! I had a lot of fun with this project!

Sneak Peek!

Over at the CMB (Cricut Message Board) I'm in a Handmade Swap.  We were challenged to use up our stash so the only cost of the swap is the postage. I had a lot of fun getting to know my partner and creating things that I hope she'll like.
I'll post the full pics after she gets her package, but here's a sneak peek in the mean time.

Altered Comp books

It seems as though altered composition books are all the rage over on the Cricut message board. Since I needed a book to write down all of Connor's funny quotes in I thought I'd give it a shot. I just got a comp book for about a buck at Target, covered it in paper, put on some embellishments and Voila!

Here's a before and after: 

Here's the final product. I used Mod Podge to cover the book with paper and added a little to coat the cover so the letters would stay in place.

 Then I decided to do a couple books for swaps. I really like how they came out and wanted to keep them..

 And finally, another quote book for a friend who saw Connor's and wanted one for her daughter. You can see the shine of the Mod Podge better in this pic.

I have to say, doing these books is a little addicting. I'm sure you'll see more of these later. I almost can't wait until the books go on sale at Back to School time. Alright, now I'm just getting ahead of myself...
