I digress... my crafty side has also peaked its little head out. Pre-children, I was quite crafty. I kept up on my scrapbooking, cooking, baking and other miscellaneous projects. Having a 2 year old definitely limits my Martha Stewart time, BUT I was able to get a very simple project accomplished a couple of weeks ago. I made 2 diaper wreaths! One for Eleanor (I used this as my "test" wreath to see how it would turn out... and I wanted something pretty to hang on MY hospital door and home) and one for Lucas, Michelle from work's unborn little boy! We are due just 2 days apart, so I thought this would be just perfect. It was surprisingly super easy to make!
I have discovered I do not like printed diapers for decorative projects like this... so at babies r us, they sell seventh generation (who knew they made diapers?!) diapers. They are more of an offwhite natural color, but have no gaudy prints on them...yay! a little ribbon, paint, and cute baby items and you have yourself a diaper wreath. I highly recommend trying this out. On the difficulty scale, 0-10, it really is maybe only a 2! No excuses and it's SUPER cute! Check them out:

The one I made for Lucas... don't mind the misspelling, I have since fixed my pregnancy brain error!
