Month in Review: March 2012

A few blogs I follow do a month-in-review segment at the end of each month, and I love that. Sometimes I miss a post or am new to reading a blog, and I love to see a quick post that summarizes what's been going on there lately, so I'm adopting this idea here at CBM. Here's my first one.

March in Nebraska has been absolutely gorgeous! I cannot believe how warm and spring-y it is here, and I am soaking up every second of it! In like a lamb and out like a lamb basically. Love it! In March, I posted THREE tutorials! I showed you how to make your own diaper inserts:

How to add a zipper up the back of your kid's sweatshirt for easy dressing:

And how to make these super easy, adorable, and green reusable snack bags:

I also had some "pinspiration" and made a few things from others' tutorials (all three as gifts actually)!

The See Kate Sew Chevron clutch

 These pretty bookmarks

and this super fun fish bowl matching game

I also unveiled my new sewing room.

 I took a few more steps along my green journey by making homemade deodorant and canned beans.

I shared my new favorite appliance,

my family's budgeting system, my Life List, some cloth diaper laundry tips, and a new segment for the Speech & Language corner. Lastly, I discussed some issues close to my heart: the sympto-thermal method of birth control and some information on the impact of the animal food industries on our planet and our lives, including my review of the China Study. Stay tuned for an update on my nutrition/food plan later in the week.

Phew! What a busy month. Hope you all had a great March and are enjoying April.
