Where I go for Last Minute Baby Gifts (and Giveaway)

Everyone say Hi to my neighbor Sharina. (((waving)))
Sharina has got a sewing machine and isn’t
afraid to use it.
Sharina, owner of BlankiesBurpsandBibs.com, i
s where I turn for last-minute baby gifts. And because I’m a last-minute kind of gal, I’m at Sharina’s house...a lot.

BlankiesBurpsandBibs.com has all kids of great things for mom, baby, and little kids including bibs, blankets, clothing, stroller tags, even hair bows!

The matching bibs and burp clothes have been a huge hit with my friends.

These little dresses are so cute!



You can even get matching dresses for your big and little girl!



This Snacker Packer is ingenious.


Tuck a small bowl inside for easy snacking without all the mess. Little hands can reach in and you can tie it up easily. A clip keeps the snacks from flying off the stroller and onto the floor. The bag is reusable, better for the environment than plastic baggies, and washable!

Do you need last minute gifts? The good news is that you don’t have to drive to Sharina's house to shop. You can shop online at www.blankiesburpsandbibs.com .

Don't Trash those Broken Crayons

I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
I recently found out about a crayon recycling program called Crazy Crayons.
But...
How many broken crayons have
I tossed into the trash?
Hundreds? At least.



This program takes old and broken crayons, with the wrappers still on, and recycles them into mixed-color crazy crayons.

One woman, LuAnn Foty, is to thank for developing this program and "saving over 34,000 lbs of unwanted crayons" according to the website. And, buying Crazy Crayons helps the program continue, and make great gifts!

Lil Green tip: shipping one large box uses less material and will cost less than shipping lots of smaller boxes.

Ship crayons to:
CRAYON RECYCLING PROGRAM
LAF Lines, Ltd.
721 Village Road
Pelican Lake, WI 54463

I'm already thinking this would make a great school, scouting, or family recycling project. It's easy. It's little. But it will make a big difference.

To Market to market with my new Envirosax


I'm headed off to the farmer's market with a little green gift from my eco-friendly mom. It's an Envirosax and it's waaaay cute, very functional, and green!

These lightweight, water-proof, reusable bags fold up into a tiny pouch that fits easily into my purse. I'm already a fan of the reusable grocery bags and I leave a stash of them in my car. But there are often times I forget to grab them and they certainly don't fold up this small.

My Envirosax will come in handy at the market,
at the fair (to carry all those horrible prizes my husband likes to win),
at the pool (to carry home wet suits),
just about anywhere!

There is a line of kids bags too. How cool!

What Every Kid Needs

A wind-up flashlight!

I know these have been around for awhile. But it's got a new use for me. Every time the power went out it was a struggle between my kids wanting to feel comfortable by having their own flashlight,
and me wanting to save the batteries because this could be "the big one" - you know, the one power outage that lasts days and there's a run on C and D batteries and flashlights.

And then I found these. Originally a gift for my husband (who can NEVER find a flashlight when he needs one), they quickly turned into toys for my kids. They love it when the power goes off now. They love playing in a dark basement (saves some electricity for me!). They love to crank the handle and charge them up.

And I don't fret about the batteries.
It's a win-win. Only my husband loses...his gift is no longer really his.
But now I know what to get him for his birthday :).
