Stash Shot

This is a picture I took a couple weeks ago for a stash shot thread on the cloth diapering message board. I haven't wrote an updated stash and what it has cost me for a while now... so this is our current funs.

5 Flip Covers (2 bought new, 3 bought used) = $51.00
18 Flip Inserts (8 bought new, 10 bought used) = $42.00
16 Cotton Infant Prefolds (all new) = $24.00
2 Hemp Babies Big Weeds (used) = $8.00
Med Planetwise Wet Bag (new, but on sale) = $9.00
2 Small Wet Bags (homemade) = $10.00
Mamamade AI2 = $25.00
Muttaqin NB Fitted = $14.00

Total = $185.00

I have a Piddle Poddle Cadillac on the way that was $15.00. This doesn't include the shipping on some items or all the supply costs for making my own things, I have fabric and other stuff still lying around. I also made cloth wipes that we use.

Small Wet Bags

These are my first attempts, so I swear they will get better from here on out. I finally used some of the PUL fabric that I had gotten from the Nancy's Notions day... and I am kicking myself for not buying more. I could have made so much more and probably bigger ones.

Below is a couple different versions. I believe I will make them the way the brown/teal one is from here on out. It is the way my Planetwise one is and is nice for washing and wiping out.

I still have enough PUL left to probably make 2 more if anyone is interested. They are about 9"x12" and have a zipper closure. You can choose if you want a loop sewn in and I may be able to even make the loop snappable.

The price is $5.00 (plus shipping), you can contact me at

It's Been Another Month!

Holy crap. I knew I had been lacking on posting in the blog area and I will get to that in a minute. However, I hadn't realized that it was a whole month.

The reason that I haven't been posting is because I haven't had time. My boyfriend, Ricky quit his job and has been home all the time. He is just like having another child around and I barely get a chance to do anything when playing with my daughter, cooking for Ricky, and doing other things around the house. I have also applied for nearly 15 jobs... this breaks down into 4 teaching positions and then 11 other random things that have popped up around town. I am waiting for a call next week from the only interview I have managed to get. Ugh.

Alina is now three months. That's right - THREE MONTHS!! She was 12 pounds 1 ounce and 23 1/2 inches long at her two month appointment. She is in the 75% percentile for everything. So, we must be doing things right. She smiles, grabs for toys, and rolls over now.

My weight loss has hit a plateau. I am sitting right around 168 pounds. I can't seem to go down, but I haven't gone back up either. So I am still counting this all as a win. If the weather cooperates we will start taking wakes almost daily and I am going to try making a family binder to get the housework done in a more timely fashion.

I think that does it for the update. Welcome new readers, old readers, and whomever else is out there.
