19 weeks and feeling alright:)

I have my ultrasound in two weeks...
hopefully the baby cooperates so we'll be able to see what we are having!

I am feeling pretty large, but so far I have only gained 5 pounds. 

This is my view. Toes are gone already...

I am finally getting to the point where daily life isn't kicking my butt anymore
and I can actually be a little productive.

The last couple days I have been working on a few projects.
One involves yellow paint and my Purdy;)
Oh how I LOVE my Purdy!

Hopefully they will be completed soon and I can share them with you:)

Past Fall Projects

Since I know that many of you are new readers to Increasingly Domestic
I thought I would take this opportunity to share some past Fall projects with you.

I hope to have some new Fall projects to share soon,
but with the weather still being in the triple digits,
I am just having a hard time finding inspiration.


Yep. More baby food jars.

Not baby food jars...something else. ;)

Great for making baby food!

I hope to have some new Fall stuff for you soon:)

{Upcycled} Baby Shower Sugar Scrub Favors

Well hello there everyone!
I have been gone for quite awhile and I just want you all to know how much I appreciate those of you who have stuck around as well as you new readers(Thank you Pinterest!). I am almost 19 weeks along with pregnancy #3, and though I am feeling better, I am still SO stinking tired! Blah! Add to that, the Internet on my laptop was not working and that left me with no time for blogging. I am determined to come back though because I have missed the blogging community and my blog friends so much.

I have some new projects in the works,
but for now I will share some things from the summer that never got posted.

I am a big fan up upcycling and repurposing and these
Upcycled Baby Food Jars to Tealight Holders are one of my favorite projects.
I just love the simplicity of them as well as how little they cost to make.
Cute + frugal = Happy ME!

This is another of my favorite projects: Super Skintastic Sugar Scrub.
Not only does it make my skin smooth and moisturized, but it is cheap and easy to make. 
I'll bet you even have all the ingredients in your kitchen right now!

For my friends' baby shower favors we combined these two projects into:

Sugar Scrub Baby Shower Favors!
Get it? Baby food jars as favors for a BABY SHOWER?!? Ha ha ha!
I know...genius, right?

Scrub out the baby food jars really well and let them dry.

Scrub the lids.

Prime and paint the lids.
Mod Podge strips of fabric around jar and tie on ribbons.
Also, remove marking pen before assembling. *Wink Wink*

We used a few of them to hold candy as a cute decoration.

I made a large Sugar Scrub for the preggo (it is SO good for that stretching skin)
and we displayed them all on this adorable vintage baby scale.

Okay, so theres my first real post in months!
What did you think? ;)

I am linking up with these lovely parties:)
