Blog Party: Green Tip Tuesday *Extra Entry*

We have a special Green Tip Tuesday today! I'd like to hear how you have been going green this year. I just learned that one of my family members just started a compost pile! Yahoo! Anyways.... if you didn't know I'm participating in "For The Love of Cloth Diapers" Blog Party, hosted by Eco Chic Parties. Read all about the Blog Party by clicking on "HERE" on the side bar. Diapers Etc. has successfully got their whole website re-vamped and it looks fabulous. You should check it out! 

Today's Green Tip: Make your own wipes!

As I was going through Diapers Etc. new website I was looking through the cloth wipes. I myself have never bought cloth wipes. So I thought I'd share with you an easy how-to to make your own cloth wipes. It's super easy!

You can use same fabric or two different fabrics. One side fabric, one side flannel is good. Size is up to you. I like one side longer, about 4x6 or 4x8. But you can always just do 4x4. Then just put the "wrong" sides together and do a zig-zag stitch all the way around. Ta-Da! You're done. 

So, for today's extra entry Go over to The Mommy Blog on Facebook or Blog Frog and lets mingle! What's a party without mingling? Head on over to see what we're chattin' about!

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
