Weekend Wrap - 2/21/2011

It's been awhile since I have gotten a Weekend Wrap posted, and this is another sign that life is starting to settle down with the newest addition.  Last night Ms. T slept from 10:30pm to 1:30am; was back to sleep by 2:30am; woke up with daddy at 5:30 am;  we got up together at 5:30am and drained a bottle.   I feel like I slept amazing last night!  Then surprisingly Ms. T went back to sleep again, and I was able to put her back in the bassinet.  Which makes this the 2nd day since bringing her home from the hospital that I got my morning to-do list complete and have time to blog!

My sewing project for this weekend was to finally get a diaper clutch finished for Ms. Diva's diaper bag.  With the new baby the big diaper bag stays in the sanctuary with us during service, and Ms. Diva's super-cute backpack goes with her to the nursery.  Unfortunately this super-cute backpack does not have interior pockets to stuff things in, and her diapers kept coming out crinkled.  {Not a big deal to most I am sure, but it was driving me nuts!} 

Here is the finished diaper clutch:

I am going to post pictures and more details on how I created this fantastic, must-have item for any diaper bag.  Here is the tutorial that I used as my starting point over at Vanilla Joy.  Regarding the size... if you are wanting to use this diaper clutch for Size 4 and larger diapers add at least an inch to the 17.5" side {I am thinking of making another with a 19.5" side for Ms. Diva}.

Ms. Diva was dividing her time between her usual supervising and checking on Ms. T, who was sitting in her little rocking chair next to us.  Ms. Diva found out how unforgiving rocking chairs can be when she rocked it over her toe and then stood there putting her whole weight on that side while crying.  After getting the chair off her toe she had a good long cry to make sure the entire world know her pain and troubles, LOL!   

Here is a sneak peak from the tutorial I am creating on how I put together the diaper clutch:

While blog hopping recently, I came across this fantastic tip listed on Be Our Best.  Jill has compiled her Top 10 Blogging Tips in one place to help others out there in blogland.  Most of them I had heard of before.  But she had one on her list that I have only seen a couple times in practice, and have not heard a how-to do it before.Number 6: Add a clickable signature to your comments.If you add the following text to the bottom of the comments you leave for other bloggers, whatever text you insert for “Your Text Here” will be clickable.  You have to switch out “{“ and “}” with “<” and “>” then it will work.  Remember to also change the “Your Blog Address” part, LOL! {a href= }YOUR TEXT HERE {/a}Bonus Tip ~ I use Notepad to store all the html codes I use on a regular basis {the direct link code for my signature image, color codes, etc.}.  I added the above code to my Notepad page, edited it with my information, and saved it.  Now all I have to do …

Planner Tabs and Dashboard

Post-it's tabs are super easy to add and move if you need to change where there are placed. I find that after placing them, I may find it easier to see them further over or on the other side of the page. 

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…
