Valentine’s Diapers

Valentine's DiapersOne of the perks of using cloth diapers is that you can match the diapers to your baby’s outfit or even pick diapers to match holidays and events.  Cloth diapers have come a long way from plain white squares of fabric and rubber pants.  Nowadays, you can find cloth diapers in almost any color and print.  Here are some of my favorites for Valentine’s Day.

Thirsties Limited Edition Sweetheart Collection – A diaper with a fresh white background and a splash of pink hearts make this the perfect Valentine’s Day diaper.  Available as a cover, pocket, or AIO diaper you also gets lots of options to meet your cloth diapering needs.  Orchid and rose are also great.

BumGenius Dazzle and Countess.  A deep purple and a bright, hot pink make these adorable peeking out from under a cute Valentine’s dress.

Rumparooz Spice is a gorgeous muted red.  Sherbert’s purply pink is rich while Amethyst is softer.  Tulip is the perfect baby pink while Crimson is red hot.  Lux would also make a fun valentine’s print with it’s blends of pink and red.  Rumparooz offers so many Valentine’s friendly colors you could set up an assortment for the whole day!

Grovia’s Persimmon and Poppy add a little more color variation to the lineup.

Applecheek’s Love HappensSuddenly Royal and Jem add two pretty purples to the assortment.

BabyKicks Red would be perfect for your little gentleman.

Best Bottom’s Strawberry Shortcake gives us a little pop of yellow with our pink.  Very Cherry gives a classic red and white while Wild Berry blends two purples.  If you want to mix in a little green, try Plum Pie.  For a splash of black and white try Cookies N Cream.

ButtomBumper’s Cherry, Plum and Pixie are adorable.  Bubble Gum gives us a little bit of green with all the pink and purple while Licorice gives us a black and white chevron sure to compliment all those reds and pinks.  Sweet Cherry mixes it up a bit with fresh cherries and flowers on a pink backdrop.

Funky Fluff offers Love Bug and Pink.

I’ve always loved Itti Bitti’s rich, velvety colors.  Mulberry and Papaya are simply decadent.  Danube and Hanako add some adorable prints.  And Bubble Gum gives us another pop of pink.

Tidy Tot’s rounds out our Valentine’s Day diapers with Violet, Cheeky Cheetah, Pink Circles, and the adorable Tweet Heart.

Of course, the best part about all of these cloth diapers is that they can be worn every single day to add a bit of love to your baby’s tushy.

Secret Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! The romantic soul that I am – I love today.  I love love. Always have.  An excuse to gush over the ones you love, have sweets, and get dressed up just because. Yes, I can be feminine when I want to be and today just makes me giddy.

My tots picked out Valentine’s pajamas this past weekend and I’m going to get them dressed in them and let them wear them all day.  A love machine and a love pirate – robots and, well, pirates – were their chosen themes.  Little boy dreams, but super sweet little boys who at 1 and 3 years still like to give me cuddles and hugs.

I stuck hubby’s card and note under his phone this morning and he read it before work.  We dug into the Valentine’s cake I made last night…we couldn’t resist.  It didn’t look perfect, but it tasted delicious.  Vanilla cake with marshmallow icing and rose and heart candy melts.  Yum…

I signed up to do a secret valentine gift exchange with a little group of artisans that I belong to.  While I haven’t met these ladies in person, they are true friends.  We chat, we share our crafts, stories, and lives.  I’ve received surprise packages and warm-hearted notes from many of them and I was very excited to get to create something for one of them.

I received my gift earlier this week and was excited to open it.  My secret valentine came from my favorite polymer clay artist Kathy.  You can see her shop Flowertown Originals here and you’ll see why I love her work right away.  Her work is amazing and she is an equally amazing person.  I absolutely LOVE my gift.  It was very thoughtful and just perfect for me.  The seam ripper works fantastically (yes, I had to use it as soon as I opened it) and is so much easier to use than the standard one you buy at the store. My fingers don’t cramp up and I can easily glide it through the seams.  And the pins are gorgeous!  I’d be happy to replace all my pins with these.  I also love my little magnet. I have it on my magnetic board right next to my sewing machine with some other little cards and trinkets I’ve received from my fellow artisans.

Valentine’s Day…it’s not just for lovers.  It’s for family, friends, and all those that we hold dear.  A day to remember that those around us can make our lives so much better just by being there.  I’m a lucky lady and I hope today that someone stops to make you feel a little loved too.

This is absolutely not a sponsored post.  I just wanted to share my gift and my love for Kathy’s amazing work.
