Gift Guide: S’s Gift Picks for Moms
By

Gang, I’m back!! Sort of. Sleep deprived, yes. Living in a fog…um, yeah…that too. But the happy mum of two adorable boys. And if that weren’t enough (although it is, really)…it’s the holiday season! After nine long months or pregnancy, and after too many sleepless nights, I’m in the mood to be pampered. I’ll bet many of you are too. So forward this on to your gentlemen or partners to help point them in the right direction, gift-wise.

Playing: Leaf Books (OMG – Did S Get Crafty??)
By

So yes – Martha Stewart I am not. But capable of making messes? Oh yeah – big time. Does my husband cringe when he calls home and I say, “We’ve started an art project!!” Absolutely. Do we ever create something usable? Something that requires actual precision, skill or even nice handwriting? Nope. Never.
So I was very excited about this one.

Handmade Alternatives: Nursing Covers
By

For any mother-to-be who plans on nursing, or moms who breastfeed currently, modesty while breastfeeding in public can be an issue. While some women feel comfortable whipping it all out in any setting, and I do truly say more power to them seeing as it is pretty much the most natural act imaginable, others are a little more booby shy. And that’s where a nursing cover comes in. After receiving a handmade nursing cover as a gift from a friend, I realized that while there are commercial versions like the Bebe au Lait Hooters Hider $35, from diapers.com (is it me, or is that name kind of…lacking in taste?)…I personally think you’ll find a broader selection of gorgeous covers on Etsy with the bonus of being handmade or even customized to your specifications.
Behold just a few of my favorites…..

Listening: Best Lullaby CD Ever
By

Sure, music soothes even the most savage two-year-old human beast. But for some of us, powering through a kids music CD is a cloying act of endurance, often precipitated by an already stressful meltdown situation. Not so with Anya Jane & Friends’ Lullabies, a recent release of “old favorites and new gems,” beautifully rendered in acoustic guitar, requinto (a cute little guitar), mandolin, harmonica and piano, with amazing vocals that will leave both you and your tiny person breathing a sigh of relief.

Etsy: Yes You CAN (A How-To For Moms and a Few Fab Sellers)
By

After my recent articles about slings and carriers and shopping car covers (a series about handmade alternatives to common baby products), we had several messages from readers who have experienced confusion or frustration when shopping on Etsy. I hate to hear that, because Etsy is one of my favorite places to shop, online or otherwise. Hopefully, a few tips can help make Etsy more user-friendly for moms who are seeking handmade or vintage goods!
