How to make a Children’s Art Display with String and Clothes Pins

Art is very important. To me, at least. It is a way for me to be creative and use the side of my brain that I don’t get to use at work. Art helps me focus and relieve stress. Doing something on paper, instead of a computer, helps give my eyes a much needed break. Above all, I simply enjoy doing various forms of art.

A Recipe for Diaper Rash, Dry Nipples, Cuts, Headaches, Burns and other Boo Boos that will make you Super Mom

While I was pregnant I did a lot of research. I planned on cloth diapering and had read that you shouldn’t use standard diaper creams due to the cream limiting the absorbency of the cloth diaper. Also, most standard retail creams are more of a “block” instead of something that will help heal a rash. I had also planned to breast feed and knew I’d probably need a cream for that as well. I found a recipe that I have fallen in love with!
