Three Must-Have Fashion Accessories for Post Pregnancy

Hello and Happy Saturday, y’all! I am so excited that my sweet friend Siri is continuing to contribute for Mine for the Making! Today she is sharing Three Must-Have Fashion Accessories for Post Pregnancy.
 
*****
 
Hi Everyone! It’s Siri from Of Pumpkin Thieves and Buffalo Wings!
 I am so honored to be back guest posting for Kara again this year! Last year I was posting about home decor, but this year my posts will be all about fashion!
 
 
Fashion is something that is near and dear to me since I am a photographer and I love continually developing my own style!
 
I think this quote by Rachel Zoe best describes how I feel: “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.”
 
Because I’ve had my own distinct style for quite a while, I wasn’t quite prepared for the changes that would take place in my post-pregnancy body. I really needed to find accessories that complimented me 
as I tried to gain back my confidence, and help my body heal. 
 
It’s not easy to look in the mirror and see someone standing there who you barely recognize, but somehow when I look in the mirror with my baby girl in my arms, it all makes sense. I had to give a lot to get her here in my arms where she belongs.  
 
As I tried idea after idea after idea for fashion accessories, I finally found the three things that worked for me! I’ve been losing weight each month and during the process, I’ve discovered my favorite accessories for styling my wardrobe. 
 
My three must-haves for post pregnancy fashion are:
 
1. Cardigans
 
Cardigans give your post-pregnancy body a nice comfortable layer with a little flow so you can wear pre-pregnancy clothing with a little extra cover for comfort.  Target has them in every color imaginable too.
They match everything! And cardigans are awesome ALL the time, so it’s a win-win!
 
 
2. Belts
 
When you feel like you aren’t quite back to your pre-pregnancy body yet, a small belt can accentuate your waistline instead of letting you look like you are drowning in clothes.  You can still have a loose comfortable fit, but that belt will help flatter your figure. 
 
 
3. (And this is the practical one) Teething Jewelry
 
My little lady loves to chew on everything, which for a while, made me feel like I couldn’t wear jewelry any more. Wrong! You just need to find baby friendly jewelry or teething jewelry!
 
 
I love my necklaces from Mama & Little and so does my baby girl! She is always chomping on them 
and they are 100% safe for her. 
 
Meanwhile, I am always looking good without having to worry!
 
I know it’s a hard journey for most (definitely for me) to lose that pregnancy weight and feel comfortable in your own skin again. Finding ways to make your outfits work for you will help the journey be a little less frustrating. 
(Shoes designed by Whippy Cake for the Detour Collection for Cents of Style.)
 
I work every day on helping my body get back to where it was, and though it will always be much different than it was before, I’m proud of my body for bringing my precious Svea into this world. 
 
For that great sacrifice, it’s worth it to care for myself and be patient with my body as it heals. 
I hope this gives you some ideas for dressing your post-pregnancy body, whether that is now or in the future!
 
Thanks for having me Kara!

Tour Through Blogland

Hi there friends! We’re taking a quick break from Mommy Tell All Monday for a fun blog series, Tour Through Blogland! Today’s post should let you know a little bit more about me and my blog as well as introduce you to a few of my bloggy friends!

tour through blogland.jpg

Bethany from Pitter and Glink invited me to join in this fun series. I adore this cute friend of mine and although we haven’t actually met in real life, I consider her a good friend. We often support and cheer each other on behind the computer screen and I adore everything she makes. A few of my favorite projects of Bethany’s are her Stencil Watercolor Makeup Pouch, Feather Art for the Not-So-Artistic, and her Thrift Store Lamp Makeover. Bethany blogs about cute crafts, DIY projects, art, and jewelry… you will seriously fall in love with the prettiness of her little corner of blogland. Be sure to visit her at Pitter and Glink!

pitter and glink.jpg

If you are new here at Mine for the Making, WELCOME! If you are a regular reader, what up peeps?! ;) I’m going to answer a few Tour Through Blogland questions to give you a better idea of what my vision of Mine for the Making is. 

What are you currently working on?

That’s a great question. But an even better one is…what am I NOT currently working on? LOL! Typically I have several projects going on at one time. I could be working on a blog campaign project, designing a printable, creating a wreath, lesson planning for homeschool, renovating a room in my house, and creating a new recipe all in one week. I enjoy being busy. I always have. Especially when I am busy with things that I love. Just recently I shared My Craft Room Reveal…really proud of this project!

craft room reveal mine for the making 6.jpg

I often share kid-friendly activities, my thoughts on motherhood, as well as parenting tips. Just recently I shared 3 Tips to Help Kids Cope with Vaccines

walgreens giveashot1

Over the summer we have been LIVING on lots of different smoothies to stay nice and cool (while trying to be as healthy as possible…summer makes us want to snack a lot!). This Dairy Free Pina Colada Smoothie was mom and kid approved and we had it often!

PinaColadaSmoothie4

How does your blog differ from others in its genre?

Hmmm… this is a tricky question. I think that every blogger brings their own “thing” to the table. It may be what they share, how they write, or how well they connect with their readers. I think that Mine for the Making is a place where moms can go to find kid-friendly activities, thoughts from other moms who may be in the same ‘season,’ easy recipes, fun DIY projects, crafty crafts, and even free printables. MFTM is a one-stop-shop for mommas, or at least I hope it is! Are there other blogs who offer some of the same things? Absolutely. And I’m so grateful to be apart of such an inspiring, creative, and caring community of bloggers! I think something else that’s kind of unique about MFTM is that my husband works with me on MANY of my projects. Everything from DIY builds to beautiful and tasty recipes. I’m pretty much obsessed with his Smoked Mozzarella Dip and Luci’s DIY Loft Bed is always everyone’s favorite feature in our house. 

husband projects.jpg

Why do you write and create what you do?

I have always been creative and I love handmade…since I was a little girl. Mine for the Making is my creative outlet and a huge piece of my life. I share everything I love here, openly and honestly. I discovered a whole new world of ‘handmade’ when I started blogging and fell in love with that community as well. And though my blog morphed from a family blog to what it is today, I feel like I have grown with it as well. Being creative makes happy…it makes me feel alive. And I love that I have this little corner of the Internet to share it with all of you! 

How does your writing/creative process work?

I keep an “Ideas” journal close by so that anytime an idea pops into my head (it happens often), I write it down because I will most definitely forget. Especially if it’s in the middle of the night (when all the best ideas come to me) or when I’m in the middle of doing 5 things at one time (you’re a mom…you know what I’m talking about). My daughter is a huge creative inspiration for me and I often bounce my ideas off my husband (he’s the ‘idea guy’). Often times I have a vision of what I want to create, but as I am actually in the act of creating, it turns into something else or it gives me another idea for my next project. When I’m having a hard time coming up with creative ideas, I often visit some of my favorite stores or favorite sites for inspiration. Once I start writing (aka: typing up my post), words just come to me. Most times I go back and edit, re-edit, and edit again. Then once I publish the post, I ask my husband to go read it or check out how my photos turned out for a good critique. Creating and writing are two things that have always seemed to come pretty naturally for me. It’s not something I struggle with…it’s something I really enjoy.

Meet My Bloggy Friends!

I invited a couple of my bloggy buddies to join in the Tour Through Blogland series. You are going to love these gals and I really encourage you to check out their blogs!

My positive and energetic, paleo-eating, yoga teaching, crossfit doing, homeschooling, essential oils guru, inspiring mommy friend Mel of Mbrace Life is a must follow. Not only is she my real life friend, I just LOVE her blog. She blogs about health, fitness, and good ol’ mom life. Her perspective is uplifting and refreshing, yet she is real and honest. A couple of my favorite posts are Playground Fitness and Mbrace Parenting.

mbrace life.jpg

 My next friend that I am going to introduce you to I met via Instagram, and I tell you what- I’ve met some of my very favorite people because of that crazy cool photo app! Aleisha from Britches n Boots is as sweet and as caring as they come. She’s a mom (to 4 awesome kiddos) and wife first but she wears plenty of other hats as well. Aleisha is an avid book reader, gardener, coffee obsessed, fresh flower lover, Anthropology wearing, Jamberry Nails consultant, who runs a blog and a shop FULL of gorgeous handmade pretties. She’s the first to offer to pray for you and it’s not just something she says…she truly loves her Heavenly Father, family, and friends above anything else and I know this woman prays and she prays hard. You will find family posts, book reviews, her thoughts, sprinkled in with yummy recipes and cute crafts on her blog.

 Thanks so much for sticking around and learning a bit more about Mine for the Making and meeting some of my bloggy buddies! Please go on over and visit these ladies….I promise you will love them! Have a Happy Labor Day and blessed week ahead.

See you tomorrow for Teach Me Tuesday!

 

 

Teach Me Tuesday: Marble Tracing Bags

Welcome to Teach Me Tuesday! A (mostly) weekly series where we share all things kid-friendly that you can do with your kids or teach them how to do. It can be educational, artistic, scientific, hands-on…anything goes as long as it’s kid approved! Today our Kids’ Activity Contributor, Michelle, is back to share Marble Tracing Bags!

TeachME Tuesdays Button - Kara

Hi Mine for the Making friends! It is Michelle again from Delicate Construction and I have another fun kids activity! With back to school time coming, I wanted to share something that you could do with the little kids that is both fun and a great way to work on fine motor skills. My daughter Avery (age 4) had a blast with this and we did both letters and numbers but also had some fun with shapes as well. All you need are three things you may even have at the house, but if not, that you can grab at the dollar store and you are ready to go!

marble bag.jpg

This is a super simple and versatile activity that can help with introduction, practice and review of the shapes of different numbers, letters and symbols for young children. I grabbed my hair gel and marbles at the dollar store and I had a 2 1⁄2 gallon bag at home. Normally I make these in gallon bags, but all I ended up having on hand was the 2 1⁄2 gallon bags and you know what, I think this is a fun size too because it allows for more tracing in their multiple symbols or shapes or even larger or more detailed designs.

marble bag2

I just opened up the bag, and since I had the large one, I added the whole bottle of gel. If you had one gallon bags you could use half the bottle and make two bags if you would like. At this point, I also added the food coloring or liquid watercolor, whatever you have on hand.

marble bag 3

After that I added the marbles, same as the gel, I put the whole bag in but if you had gallon bags, just split it in half. These were also the flat sided marbles, I have done it with round ones as well and both work great.

marble bag 4

Once you have everything in the bag, all you need to do is duct tape the top and you are ready to roll!

marble bag 5

The way it works is you write the letter, number or shape on a piece of paper and place it under the bag.

Then the children maneuver the marbles in the bag to trace the shape, number or letter.

marble bag 6

It not only helps with recognition, but it is also great for fine motor development as well when the little fingers are maneuvering the marbles around in the bag.

marble bag 7

That is all for today! I hope this is something to use and I can’t wait to see you when I am back again next month with a fun fall craft!

My Secret Language

 

When I was in junior high and high school, my best friend and I loved looking at our horoscopes and reading astrology books. Often at sleepovers we would find out each other’s “color” or “love language.” It was so fun to see how accurate they were and we would either end up in shock or a fit of giggles. Either way, lots of fun memories were made.

photo {Summer of 2000}

Now as an adult, I will tell you that it still interests me, but I’m a bit more particular in my reading selections. The Secret Language is an innovative site that uses your specific birth date to find your Secret Language Name. For example, Abe Lincoln was an “Intentional Unifier” and Mother Theresa was an “Innocent Supportive Partner.” I was eager to enter my birthday to see what it would reveal…

Capture1

 My Secret Language Name is “Compassionate Combatant.” In other words, I am an empathetic fighter. I can totally see that about myself. And not a fighter as in I like to throw down and box peeps, but more along the lines of I don’t stop or quit until I get what I want. Bumps in the road? I pave through them as best I can. And my character traits are spot on as well. 

 I read on to see what The Secret Language said about my personality…

Capture2

Ummm…what? If you know me, you know that this depiction of my personality hits home. I was giggling to myself thinking about the fun I would have had with this site back in the day with my bestie. Then I geeked out for an hour or so and started entering in birth dates of my husband and friends and family. You can even click on “Check Relationship” and enter in your birthday along with someone else’s to see what the deets of your relationship are and how compatible you are. I can’t wait to tell my best friend about the site. I know she’ll get a kick out of it!

The Secret Language isn’t like the old school astronomy I remember looking at when I was younger. “It’s a distillation of personality traits found during a 40-year empirical study of more than 20,000 people, organized by birthday.” There are more than 6 million books in print around the world in 15 different languages. And my girl T. Swift even said that the Birthdays book was her favorite birthday gift last year (watch the video HERE). 

Head on over to The Secret Language and enter in your birthday to see what your ‘name’ is! Then check your friends and family! Is it close or way off? Leave a comment and let me know! 

I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective and the content and opinions expressed here are all my own.
