I received some diaper pail powder once, and I loved it.  But then I ran out, so I just used baking soda.  Wink  And then I got to thinking about how to make it, and wondered if I could just add essential oils to the powder.  So, I googled it.... and according to this recipe, that's how you do it!  LOL!  Here's a recipe I found.  Definitely going to try it once the little one arrives and I start CD'ing ~6 wks old.  (My toddler is almost potty-trained!  HOORAY!)

I thought that might be what this was, but hadn't seen it before.  (The pail deodorizers I used to buy are discontinued, and now you can only buy the icky chemically-smelling ones.  Tongue )

My package is finished and will probably go to the PO tomorrow.

Here is my package from our lovely organizer.

Matching dresses for both girls in my favorite color!  These are soooo beautiful!  And a super cute matching little stuffed owl.  I love everything so much!

Sorry the lighting wasn't very good so this picture doesn't do them justice.  A2jc4life if you have better pics please post them.

Thank you!

I'm glad you like them.  That was my first-ever attempt at combining prints, so I was rather nervous.  I hope the baby dress fits okay; it looks huge to me.  Undecided

The dresses are adorable! And the owl!!

Did you use patterns for those A2JC4life?? They seriously look awesome Smiley

For the dresses, yes.  For the owl, sort of. 

The dresses are the Miss Madeline pattern from The Handmade Dress.  This was my first encounter with that specific pattern ('though I used another of hers earlier in the year) and the non-serger instructions make the insides a little less finished than I usually like.  I still like the pattern, though.  I'm planning to make my daughters and their cousin matching or coordinating dresses with it around Christmas.  (Oh, I cut the dress down a little for the little one.  It comes in a 6-month, but not a 0- or 3-month, so I made it smaller.)

The owl was copied from mom2em's wists.  I printed out an owl template to use as a pattern, but it wasn't a pattern for a stuffie - it was a template for something else.  Lemme see if I can find it.  It's a towel pattern from here: http://www.craftjr.com/fall-kitchen-crafts-owl-towels/owl-template/  I fiddled with it until the size seemed similar to the Etsy one.  (The appliqud pieces are just eyeballed.)
