My new little friend...

I have a friend I want to introduce you to.  You all know my diaper - giraffes in blue!  Isn't it super duper cute?

Well, my little buddy is just as cute!  He is a Waldorf inspired doll.  His maker is a dedicated customer and friend of mine.  I have given her scraps left over from my diapers that I just don't have time to use for anything else.  She makes them into these adorable dolls! And lots of other things too, she is so creative.  So cute and fun huh?

He is super soft being made with left over microfleece and cotton knit from my diapers.  As an added bonus he is stuffed with clean carded wool.  How much better can you get?  Saskia has 6 kiddos, and is an amazing mama.  Everything she does she does with love and some help!  :)  Saskia tries to live a very natural life.  They have animals and a great place for the kids to grow up.  She tries as best she can in their little community to make organic and healthy food for her family.  How amazing is it that she can do all this AND homeschool some of her kiddos?  I wish I could get as much done in a day as she does!  

Her dolls are not perfect.  They are handmade!  Saskia says about her doll, "It isn't perfect, but it's cute. I wonder if I will ever make a perfectly proportioned doll, maybe that will be my signature, dolls who aren't perfect, yeah, sounds good. Because we can all identify with that!"  Saskia just loves to sew and she is getting more proficient everyday.  She is also tinkering with making soft soled baby shoes...maybe they will be joining her etsy shop soon.  This little guy is soper soft with no parts that will come off and baby can choke on.  He is constructed very well and would hold up to playing and being loved.  

When she showed me the doll she had made with my left over fabric an idea started to brew!  I thought how cute and adorable it would be to have a matching diaper and doll?  So, here they are... Aren't they just the cutest?  What baby, or mama for that fact, wouldn't LOVE these?  

He is cute huh?  He has been sitting at my house for a few days and my 2 youngest keep begging to have him and play with him.  BUT....I have to tell them no because he is a part of my next giveaway!  
YOU get the chance to win this little doll.  You also get the diaper to go with him!  :)

off the beaten path!

I know this is totally not diaper related, but I have to tell you I wish I was a better person!
I am in a book club.  We pick a book, and then we all read it and get together once a month to talk about it.  We end up visiting into the wee hrs every time.  I love it!  There are some pretty amazing ladies in our group.  I look at them and their lives and wish I was better!  I wish I could have their enthusiasm and love of life.  They get so excited about old stuff, like dishes and furniture.  We sit and talk knitting, and sewing, and antiques, and of course books!  It is so fulfilling to sit and be a part of, and then I go home and think my life is so lacking.  I...well... I don't know how to explain how I feel.
Do you ever feel this way?  Do have people that yo look up to - that inspire you?  I would love to hear about them.

Win some SOCKS!

I want to introduce you to a friend of ours!  We LOVE this little guy in our house.  Now, I don't generally like bugs, but Bugsley is cute and he is smart!  He knows that SmartKnitKIDS has “NO Seams to Bug Ya!”  Bugsley is a good bug, unlike the bugs in your kids' socks.  He protects little toes from icky seams.
Let's introduce you to SmartKnitKIDS socks k?  
SmartKnitKIDS is a brand of Knit-Rite, Inc.  Knit-Rite has been manufacturing medical textiles for over 85 years and is a third generation family owned business.  Their mission is to develop products for a better quality of life.
The Knit-Rite family is an amazing team and they are so humbled by the fact that what they do every day is helping someone. As a result of having the capabilities to innovate unique products, they often receive requests for hard to find products. A couple of years ago several moms contacted them searching for a truly seamless sock for their children. Knit-Rite began to understand that something as simple as a sock seam was a real issue for a child with sensory issues. Helping these children was a natural fit so they quickly developed a special sock for little feet.  The inspiration behind the seamless socks came from Moms just like you.  
You can read the whole inside scoop HERE.
Since Knit-Rite is a medical textile company, they can use innovate fibers in their products.  The antimicrobial fiber in the SmartKnitKIDSsocks was taken from the line of seamless diabetic socks called SmartKnit.  They found that the fiber had multiple uses; it helps to keep diabetic feet healthy and it prevents stinky feet in the kids socks. SmartKnit differ in that they have a heel where SmartKnitKIDS do not.   
Knit-Rite has several consumer brands including SmartKnitKIDS, SmartKnit, Therafirm, Therafirmlight.  Therafirm and Therafirmlight are brands of compression hosiery.  They also manufacture medical textiles for the Prosthetic and Orthotic community.  For more information about Knit-Rite and their products, you can visit them at 

So what do I think?  WOW!  We love these socks!  I won a pair off their twitter "12 days of socks" giveaway they had.  I got a pair for my oldest daughter.  She has super stinky feet!  -wow, she would be super embarrassed if she know I put that on the internet for the whole world to read  LOL!  I thought we could give them a try and see if they really did help with the stink.  
When we got the first pair of socks she put them on and the said she liked how comfortable they were.  
The first really run of them was wearing them to school in her snow boots all day!   really-they leave a 7am and get home at 4pm!  
So, how did they hold up?  Amazingly!  Her feet didn't stink!  I am thinking I need these for my hubby too!  hehehe!
I knew I had a rave review of these socks so I contacted them to see about a giveaway.  They sent me another pair of socks to try  with one of my other kiddos.  These ones are black and they are for my son Jacob!  He loves them!  They are his new dress socks.  He loves that he can pull them up as high as he wants and I don't get after him for pulling the heel up higher than it should be.  Do you have kids that do that too?  I hate that! 
He also likes the no seam thing -no bumps to rub on his little toe and give him a blister.  
-they come in a fun little box with a Bugsley of your own!  :) 

-See, really NO SEAMS!  

If you want to WIN some free SnartKnitKIDS socks here is your chance!  
They are offering 3 pairs to 1 winner Whoo-hoo! that is great!  more than I got  ; - )
The winner can pick the size and color
