Project Name: Apple-Blueberry Teething "Cookies"
Project Page Link: RECIPE! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439140.0
Brief Description: I was looking for a healthy teething biscuit recipe for my 14-month-old... and failed. Everything I found had sugar in them. So I decided to kind of wing it by meshing some other recipes together and adding my own spin on them. Happily, they turned out great! Well, the baby likes them anyway!

Brief Description: When she finished the Apple-Blueberry Teething Cookies, my toddler was still teething pretty fiercely (At least 2, possibly 4 teeth coming in - she won't let me look properly). So I made her another batch, in a different flavor.

Project Name: Diaper Liners
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439101.0
Brief Description: My 14-month-old was having some bad diaper rash issues, and needed a medicated diaper cream. Unfortunately, we use cloth diapers, and most diaper creams are not safe to use with cloth diapers (they ruin them, and make them non-absorbent). So I made enough fleece liners to line every one of her diapers (plus a few extra) and keep them safe from the diaper cream.

Project Name: Apple-Blueberry Teething "Cookies"
Project Link: Recipe! - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439140.0
Brief Description: I was frustrated with all of the teeth biscuits in the store that have extra junk in them (food coloring, sugar, preservatives, etc). I started looking for recipes online that didn't have any of that... and found lots and lots with sugar... Exactly what I DON'T want to be giving to my 14-mont-old... I mixed and matched some different recipes and came up with these. I rolled them out and cut out hearts and stars. My girl, and her other toddler friend absolutely love them! WOO! Happy mama!

15  Reusable Diaper Liners in Completed Projects by elliot_anne on: April 28, 2015 12:44:03 AM
This thread mentions diapers, poop, diaper rash, etc. If that's gunna bug you... you were warned.

We have been using cloth diapers on my 14 month old for over a year now. We've never really had any problems with diaper rash or anything until a couple of weeks ago. She got a rash from something she ate (we're still trying to figure out what she's allergic to), that triggered a rash so bad her poor bum was bleeding! We took her to the pediatrician who prescribed us some fancy medicated bum cream to help clear it up.

Problem! Bum cream + cloth diapers = BIG NO NO! (Unless it's a special cloth-diaper-safe cream, it causes the cloth diapers to repel water (pee) instead of absorb... No bueno). The normal solution is to put the baby in disposable diapers until the rash clears up. Well, after 3 hours in a disposable diaper, baby girl's butt was not only still bloody, but also chapped because the disposable diapers suck all of the moisture out of her skin... -sigh-

Solution! Fleece liners laid on top of the cloth will keep the cream from touching the diaper, wick pee away from the baby's skin (keeping her rashy area dry) without pulling out SO much moisture that her bum gets chapped.



It took me about 45 minutes to cut down some fleece I had into the right size liners for her diapers. I made enough to line every one of her (30) diapers, plus a couple of extras - I just went til I ran out of fabric.



They are roughly 6"x9" and so far they are working great!

Here is a picture of it sitting in the diaper. It actually goes a little bit lower than I placed it for the picture, but you get the idea. (And yes, we use the old-fashioned flats with a diaper cover. LOVE MY CLOTH DIAPERS!)

16  Charlotte's Hoops in Needlework: Completed Projects by elliot_anne on: April 28, 2015 12:32:47 AM
I have been idea crazy about all these hoops I want to make for my baby girl's nursery wall, and here are two more to add to the pile, haha. These ones I actually finished the backing of today, so they will be going on her wall tomorrow! Smiley



Here is a closeup of the bunting embroidery. I wish I have done a chain stitch for the "string" holding the flags.



For the wreath embroidery, I actually painted the design in watercolors, scanned it into my computer, printed it out, transferred the image to the hoop, and then stitched it. A long process, but I really like how it turned out. I tried to do some different kinds of stitches on this one. The only thing I don't like is the chain stitch under her name... meh...

All of these ATCs are so beautiful they are making my lust bucket ache!

Speaking of, I got an AWESOME one in the mail today! WOO! -happy mail happy dance-

This is the first one I've gotten for my Purple/Green ABC theme. The letter P!



It is so cool in person! The letter looks like trees/vines, and is all glittery and I am in LOVE with the green bubble wrap painting on the side. (Jeremy normally only says "Oh, that's cool. I like it," to anything I show him. This time he commented that he really liked how many different shades of purple and green she incorporated! That's high praise coming from him!)

Sorry for all the catching up I'm about to do. Bear with me to the end to see the AMAZINGNESS that spazzybrat sent me!!

AugustBell Beautiful Autism Awareness card! I've been watching Parenthood, and I really like how they have highlighted some of the difficulties/realities of loving someone with autism (Max), while also giving a vision of hope for the future (Hank). Ooh the scratchcard is such a cool idea! I never would have thought to do that! I love the mandala! When I'm feeling stressed sometimes I will draw or color them myself. Yours looks very relaxing!

patraw Love the lolita! I especially love her little buns! So cute! And that cutout cat is awesome too! (Hmm... I may have to add papercutting onto my to-do list... it's been a while since I've done one...) WOW! That mermaid is amazing! And that does not look like an easy pose to draw, either!

blupaisan That train trestle is so cool looking! And the sunset is just gorgeous! Aww the little mushroom man is so cute (and now I'm having swap anxiety because I made a mushroom for AugustBell!)!! And now I'm also jealous of the garden ATC... If I could ever manage to not kill every plant that enters my home (I can't even keep a cactus alive... it's bad, guys), I would totally want that sign in my (nonexistent) garden!

curiousfae Super cool mixed media piece. I love that style (though I can't seem to figure out how to do it myself, haha). And... I think I need that treasure map. -goes off to add Treasure Maps to her list of themes-

jenleahlynn Awesome steampunk lady. She looks like she could fit right into a Sherlock Holmes adventure! (The one with Robert Downey Jr, anyway). Loving the Shel Silverstein card. I loved his poetry as a kid, though I don't think I'm brave enough to try shrinkydink (after a ceramics class and exploding pottery, everything that shrinks just kind of worries me). And that non-paper Little Prince one is super cool! Love the quote, too! I am seriously jealous of that bubble bath card with the rubber duck! Oh my goodness!

pottermouth What a cool moving skeleton dude! Even with the instructions you gave, I'm still having trouble picturing exactly how to all works (I am NOT an engineer by any means, haha!), but he is still awesome without my brain being able to visualize the technical part.

rockingbearranch I love the hope themed cards! I actually have a greeting card in my stash that has similar imagery/style to those. Smiley I've never heard of The IT Crowd, but the portrait looks really good, and I love the moveable speech bubble! That goddess themed one is beautiful. The colors are so bold and powerful!

kosmicgirl OMG THAT YETI!! I just want to keep him in my pocket all the time. That way whenever I am feeling sad, I just pull out this little friendly yeti who gives me a daisy and then I's not to sad no mores.

spazzybrat BAHAHA I LOVE BAYMAX! So cute! My fiance is IN.LOVE. with Big Hero 6 (hence it is one of my themes), and Baymax is our favorite, hands down (though that's probably true for everyone). Heehee the My Little Pony card is so cute.

Mountains and Clouds I want to eat those tomatoes! They look like they could just jump off the page and into my belly! Those self portraits are just lovely! I can't get up the nerve to try to do a self portrait of myself. I just ... yea, no guts here.

Ok, as promised! AWESOMENESS FROM SPAZZYBRAT for my Pinterest Inspired Theme. The bass clef/treble clef heart was actually a tattoo idea from my tattoo board, and one I have debated getting on and off since high school. I really want it, but good lord my first pair of tattoos hurt so bad! (Why am I such a wuss?) Maybe this ATC will satisfy my craving without giving me any more pain...



And I also took a picture of the card she sent because (ironically enough) my biggest client at work is an electric bike company, so it made me extra happy! Smiley

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Care of Magical Creatures
SPEW:
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Mushrooms Watercolor
Project Page Link:
Brief Description: As much as I love the Harry Potter universe, when I think of gnomes, I don't think of the potato-headed guys from the books. I think of the little fat dudes in the bright red or green waistcoats that sit on peoples' front lawns. That said, I painted some red-topped mushrooms that always seem to hang out with those type of gnomes (do they live in them? under them? I don't even know! But they always seem to be there!).
