Nappy Ever After

I used cloth nappies with all my bears but way back then it was a white towling square folded into one of two shapes …boy or girl! 

We affixed our nappies with a plastic Snappi ( because pins were going to hurt those wriggling bottoms) and hoped the waterproof of choice held the moisture long enough.

For less mess we added a nappy liner .

So when I looked at this option for Bear I was completely overwhelmed. …

Firstly at how amazingly gorgeous and stylish  the new cloth nappies are but also at how to use a modern cloth nappy. 

So many options,  new terms and choices …..

Where to begin???????

Launch Party

 Due to my ignorance I went with the disposible choice and so I was super excited to see the news of the Nappy Ever After launch party hosted by Shaakira Mathews  and Rufqah  Hoosain.

These remarkable ladies are the owners of the cloth nappy companies Nappy Ever After and Sugabums.

Together they have put together the first Nappy Ever After launch party with the intention to educate mamas like me who may want more information on modern cloth nappies and to introduce other cloth mamas to their brands.

What you waiting for

Treat yourselves to a yummolicious Primi breakfast at the V & A this Saturday as you browse these stunning products and get to meet the business mamas behind the brands. 

A wonderful opportunity to have all your questions answered by experienced cloth mamas. 

You can even bring the kids along …as a childminding service will  be provided. 

Have you booked your space yet ?

Keep your family memories

Are you making memories with your loved ones daily ? Or have you let life get in the way and are too busy to stop and enjoy those you cherish most ? 

Yesterday we took bear for a quick walk on the beach. We were both lazy . It was after 5pm and yes supper needed to be made, bear bathed and evening washing packed away but these are not the things bear will remember. …

He will however remember that his mom and dad loved to walk on the beach with him.

As the mom of older children with lives of their own I speak from experience when i say all too soon your precious little one is gone and you mostly have the memories of their childhood and some random phone calls and visits to show for it.

Start storing those memories now. 

Take the time to craft with your child,  do activities together, make that video, take that photo. …

Keep your memoriesūüíú

Some brilliant ideas to preserve memories are :

Build a family website 

Write letters to your child to give on landmark birthdays

Make videos

Start a Facebook page for family photos 

Invest in photo books or albums

Write annual family newsletter

Have regular photos taken as a family.

Make fridge magnets of your photos.

Make time casuals. 

Encourage journalist. 

Keep memory boxes from holidays and special events.

I know of several people who’ve lost a loved one who would give a moment of time to have some of their memories back.

Today … spend some time making memories for tomorrow.

A little faith …

Those who have read my fb page Sparkarella know that I wear the word Fidem tattooed on my left arm.

Fidem is Latin for faith. 

It’s the word I chose as my mantra many years ago. A reminder to always have faith as with all situations “this too shall pass” and better  days will come .

I wear it on my left arm so that I can remind myself when nothing is going right I have my faith left. 

So this cute mustard seed faith bottle craft really struck a chord in me ….

Simply place a mustard seed in a small glass jar.

Screw a eyelet in and attach chain.

Drill a hole to join a wooden disc to the chain and paint, stick or write the word faith onto the disk.
