Pokeball Pillow


Pokemon Go is super popular right now and our house is not immune to the obsession. Our boys where already really in to Pokemon before the game thanks to the show on Netflix so of course when the game came out they both wanted to try it out. Now the obsession has reached a new level.  My 6 year old spouts a constant stream of Pokemon facts that he has memorized from the Pokemon books that he is always reading, both boys always want our phones anytime we are out of the house. We get asked pretty much everyday if we can go on walks to catch Pokemon and hatch eggs. I know some people absolutely hate the app but we have had a lot of fun just watching the boys get excited about each new Pokemon that they find and going on walks as a family. As a result when Fairfield World asked if anyone would like to make a Pokemon themed project I decided to make one. Honestly, I had already been thinking about some things that I could make, this just gave me an opportunity to do it.

Easy DIY burp cloths from cloth diapers

Four weeks ago my sixth baby was born. I can't believe it has already been almost a month since he was born. I feel like getting this little guy here has been quite the adventure. This pregnancy was by far my most difficult and I had a few complications so I was very ready for it to be over and to not be pregnant anymore. The delivery was kind of the same, more complicated than any of my other births. In the end everything worked out great and a beautiful, healthy baby boy was handed to me. I was so relieved and happy to have my little baby boy here. Everything seemed to be going great and we were able to go home from the hospital the next day. His brothers and sister all loved him from the start and couldn't get enough of their new baby.

Laptop Lap Pad

Do you ever use your laptop while sitting in bed or on the couch? I have a desk where I can sit and work on my computer but more often then not I end up sitting somewhere else with my laptop on my lap. This project is perfect for those times. My husband actually requested that I make it for him and it turned out to be a really quick project.

Crochet Hexagons Pillow


I have been wanting to make a project using crochet hexagons for a while and I thought a pillow would be a good project to start with. I want to make a matching blanket too, but I figured the pillow was a good place to start.

Universal Pacifier Clip

-Product and compensation for this post provided by Fairfield World-


We just had our new baby last week and leading up to his birth I made quite a few little baby things for him, some I have posted about and some I haven't. I mostly made things like receiving blankets, swaddle blankets, and onesies. A blogging friend of mine made me a couple of pacifier clips and sent them to me. You can see how to make her version here.

Hogwarts House Scarves Blanket


Last year I participated in the Happy Harry Potter series that Rae Gun Ramblings does each July around Harry's birthday and I decided to join in the fun again this year. Last year I made crocheted bookmarks that looked like the house scarves from Hogwarts. This year I decided to do another Hogwarts house scarves project but this time I made a blanket. Perfect for snuggling up under to read a Harry Potter book or watch one of the movies. It is basically 4 giant scarves, one in each of the house colors, sewn together to make a blanket.

Embroidered Dumbledore Quote

-This post contains affiliate links-

Last year I participated in the Happy Harry Potter Series that Marissa from Rae Gun Ramblings puts on each July and this year I joined in again but instead of doing one Harry Potter project here on my blog I decided to do two, one here and one over on my husband's blog The Geeky Mormon. Today I am sharing this Harry Potter themed embroidery over there, next week I have another project that I will be sharing here. For this project I decided to embroider a quote from Dumbledore that he says in one of the movies. It is a pretty popular quote so I'm sure you've heard it before and seen different versions of it but I like it so this is my version.
