I’m not sure why but this never posted weirdness. So here it is better late than
This time around I’ve been working with what I have available in mine and Mr. Sailors closet. I do plan on finding some long sleeve tops but have yet to find any that are $15 for a plain long sleeve tee. Super ridiculous for something so simple. I’m thing it may come down to me making them an I did find a patter/tute but I’m not sure I want to go that route just yet.
Anyhoo, style has been about comfort an warmth. It’s colder here than I’ve experienced in a while so bundling up is a most somedays. I’ve snagged a sweater and hoodie for the Mr. I have jeans from Venom’s pregnancy that I’ve been wearing some but can still fit most of my jeans with the use of my tummy bands (I made those last pregnancy too. ) or the rubber bad trick. I have been working on a pant extender but haven’t gotten it just how I want it just yet. Other staples are:
Dresses: Empire waist dresses or even Blouses are nice for being able to grow with you. I prefer Maxi length as there comes a time when I dont want to/ can’t shave my legs so they hide them.
Elastic Waisted skirts- They are super comfortable and non constricting which is a must. I also have a few Maxi skirts.
Cardigans- For bundling. They are easy to take on and off when hot flashes hit.
Tights or knee highs- for under skirts and dresses.

Hair accessories- most days I’m to tired from being up all night with Venom that I dot want to go full glam Momma mode, bows and headbands add just the right extra so it doesn’t seem like I’ve over slept and not done anything all day. (All of my bows and head bands I’ve made myself. Bows and headbands can be found in my shop or by contacting me, if your looking for some.)
Belly bands or tanks.- for days I do wear jeans I usually pair them with an undershirt so that the unbuttoned part of the zip doesn’t show. They are handy for postpartum nursing in public too! You can find them pretty cheap right now due to it being Winter here in the Northern Hemisphere.
I’ve been quite again only because Mr. Sailor was on Leave last week and I was trying to spend time with hi since our Venom free time is coming to an end. I also spent the week cleaning the house so I can happily say that I a all caught up on all chores. I’m happy about the prospect of sewing all week. This morning was spent running errands so that this evening I can sit and work on finishing Venom’s quilt that I’ve put on the back burner. I have lots of things to show you guys but it keeps raining and I cant seem to get decent pictures. As soon as I can get the photos new things will be shared and listed. My one major goal this year is to work harder at S.B. Designs13. Ok well I need to go prep some purses. Stay tuned for the new things that are coming this week.
While reading post on The Bump forum, I came to the shocking realization that She-Venom will be here in about 3 months. I’m starting to feel some what unprepared. While yes things are starting to come together, Her room is still in chaos and not finished. The Bedding kind of took a backseat while I was entertaining In-Laws for the Holidays. I plan on getting back to work on that this afternoon after going to the store. Mr. Sailor and I bought a few necessities yesterday. Unfortunately I still have quite a few things I need to get. I’ve tried to update the registry but I have given up. I figure most of my friends and family read this blog anyways. Plus this list is more for my sanity than anything else. I’m odd, that I need to visually see what I need verses just thinking about it.
Stuff That’s Still Needed
– Clothes in varying sizes.
– Hats/ Hair bows and bead bands.
– Crib Sheets (Like 3 or 4 more)
– Changing table pad and covers
– Wash cloths and towels
– DIAPERS (Pack of newborns, box of 1,2, and 3’s ???)
– Pump and milk storage bags
– a few bottles ( Soothies, THIS kind please.) Just in case I need them.
– Car seat ( My mum and Little sister should be purchasing this when the one I want come out.)
– Diaper Champ (pink please)
– Boppy covers (even though I’m going to be making one or 2. I’d still like to have a couple premades.)
– Sling/ Wrap. (I really want a wrap like THIS one.
– Pack N Play (play pen, Black, White or green)
So that’s just the list of things I need. I don’t even want to think about the things that still need to be finish….. that’s a list for another day, er… maybe next week…. seeing that I only have about 12 weeks left… eep!
