Polka Dots for Parents





When I ordered the spots for Pippi's room I couldn't help but throw a few extras into the cart for myself.  Polka Dots make me smile, it's a well know fact.

After applying them to the living room I kept gleefully announcing to Dave that they were indeed the most wonderful spots i'd ever seen- it doesn't matter that he didn't agree. 

Every little bit of colour helps this pregnant stay at home mother from losing her mind! 

Long live the polka dot.

In other news, The Beetle Shack has been included in this years Voices of 2013. It's among 25 other blogs in the Personal and Parenting category - you can see the others here.

Sorry for the delay on the Stills linky- it will be up later today :)

Naturally, the wall was inspired by this woman.

I used 4 inch dots by Look Sugar and a custon 2 inch dot for pippi's room

  19. Honest diapers have the best price I could get for size 3 diapers. Even though it is slightly costlier than some, it saved me on the taxes. I considered cruizers too, but opted for the dry diapers. I don't particularly see the difference between the two.
