DIY Halloween Costumes

Part of the fun of Halloween is the hunt for costumes! We always made / put together our Halloween costumes. I even inherited the big box of costumes pieces from my parents when I got married.

Here are a few past DIY costumes:

The Milkman and a 50′s Housewife (scandalous, yes, I know)
Essentials: carton of milk, milk man patch (we ironed one on a white shirt), white pants, bow tie 50′s Housewife: vintage style dress (thrift store), apron, pearls, cleaning gloves, milk mustache (white toothpaste) and of course a baby bump #maternity #halloween #costume

Hawaiian Punch & Dr. Pepper
Dress for a luau with grass skirt and leis, add boxing gloves and carry a jug of Hawaiian Punch! My hubby was Dr. Pepper (He wore scrubs and pinned plastic chili peppers to his stethoscope and made an ID badge that said Dr. Pepper) I can’t find a picture of both of us!

Last year we weren’t as creative… our son was less than 2 months old, so it was a little crazy! Scarecrow- pin patches onto overalls, add some raffia and a straw hat, baby wore monster pjs, I had a witch hat and all black clothes, hubby was a Zombie Marathoner – just wear running clothes and paint your face. Happy Halloween!

{Free Printable} Baby and Kid Clothes Storage Labels

A soon-to-be mom asked me, “If I had to do it over again… what would I have done right before my babies were born?”

This might sounds crazy, but I told her…

 Make a plan NOW to declutter & organize as your kids outgrow things.

I’m a pretty organized person, but adjusting to life with 2 kids under 3 was a little overwhelming.  I didn’t really have a plan of what to do with piles of baby clothes and tons of “things” as they outgrew them.

So, I have something for YOU– free printable labels for each size of baby and kid clothes. Print these off before baby is born and put them in a safe place.  Wash the clothes and immediately put them in a labeled box by size. Empty diaper boxes work great for sorting clothes.  Then you can save them for your next baby or prepare for a garage sale or sell them to consignment.  I wish I had a plan for organizing before baby turned 1! Hope this helps organize the chaos.  If you are storing clothes long term, plastic tubs might be an option.

p.s. My other answer to her question would be go on date nights and just breathe. Adjusting to motherhood is a crazy, beautiful adventure!

Maternity Checklist

Maternity Checklist
http://www.getsnazzy.com/2012/03/my-maternity-style/

I started www.getSNAZZY.com last year when I was pregnant with my little boy. A few things that helped me stay somewhat stylish… buy basic maternity pieces, mainly solids and then change them up with fun jewelry, scarfs, shoes, bags (because these are things you can wear after you are pregnant!) I hated spending money on something I knew I would only wear for a short time. Borrow from friends, checkout consignment, dresses were fabulous in the summer, I wore non-maternity pieces as I could to mix it up a bit too. Also, check out my friend Valerie’s site http://charmedvalerie.com/ She is awesome – search maternity on her page. We were pregnant at the same time and she has some great looks and tips.
