the wind here is carrying some sort of allergen that has given me trouble since moving here. The past 3 years have been bad, with last year being the worst, pregnant and all - but I can really relate to my hay-fever siblings. It is quite awful - I know a sudafed would knock it out, but I am holding off as long as I can, because it gets into the breast milk.

So, today we stayed inside. mostly cleaning, and trying to get organized --

I love checking out for crafty ideas and free patterns or tutorials, and found a good one for a kid's bedside organizer. I have some super cute fabric that I almost used, but then decided to save it for something else.
Zain graduated to the full-size crib last night, and I didn't like how the red and black bed skirt went with his green froggy/monkey side of the room. And since I can't figure out how to get the bed skirt to work on the bunk-bed, I decided to use it for the kiddie organizer.

This is how well it went:

Step one:
melt goo to your iron

Step two:
disassemble bed skirt

(now take a break to clean poo out of the bathtub)

Step 3:
reassemble bed skirt and nail it to the wall
