Wearable Memories: Make a Mini Photo Block Necklace

Wearable Memories: Make a Mini Photo Block Necklace

When I first had my baby, everyone told me to enjoy every second because it would go so fast. But it wasn’t until maybe the last six months that it started to feel like he was growing up at light speed. Now I’m the mom trying to capture every moment with phone. It’s like I’m trying to bottle his toddlerhood for later. This picture cube necklace from Bugaboo, Mini, Pip, Mr & Me looks like a better way to preserve some cute toddler memories!

Make a Lumbar Pillow that Actually Looks Cute

Real talk: being a mom is hard. Even when it’s easy. My son is going through this angelic phase where he’s polite and sweet and snuggly. It’s seriously like magic. He also wants me to hold him all the time. At 28 pounds, that’s no joke. My poor arms and back are sore, but there’s no way I’m passing on toddler snuggles. They’re too wonderful and rare. Homemade lumbar pillow from Sew 4 Home to the rescue! Take THAT, achey lower back!!
