The other day a friend who has not been to our house before said I am sure your house is so clean and organized.  The truth is I love to organize, but I feel like I should have a sign “Pardon the mess we are busy making memories”.  My daughter shares my love of crafting. Which makes me so happy.  She loves to search Pinterest for projects for us to do together.

Crafting, especially with a 4 year old assistant (who am I kidding, boss) means that messes happen. Big ones. Small ones. And all the sizes in between. But sooner or later, you have to look at that mess and smile.  As she is getting older she has become a better a better helper too.  When she first started to want to help me clean I was nervous to let her use harsh chemicals.  Then it hit me Huggies baby wipes were perfect for letting B help to clean up since they are hypoallergenic and alcohol and paraben free.

Huggies Wipes are a necessity no matter the mess or occasion.  Huggies® One & Done® Refreshing Wipes are thicker, with their patented Triple Clean Layers for an ultimate clean and the ability to get the job done.  I love the soft packs. I no longer carry a diaper bag, but I do always carry wipes.  I like the EZ Pull® Dispensing that allows you to get one wipe at a time.

We both love pink and green and everything preppy.  So for this fall we created DIY Preppy Pumpkins.

We love shopping at Sam’s Club.  They have a great variety of products that we don’t have at our local grocery store. For example there are lots of Huggies wipes to pick from.  Personally I selected the Huggies® One & Done® Refreshing Wipes Our daughter loves to share her snacks with all her friends so I love buying in bulk too.  I just started using the Sam’s Club Pick Up Service when we know exactly what we need.  You simply order online, they will have everything ready when you get there to check out.  It saves so much time.

  1. What gorgeous pumpkins! And wipes are seriously the best thing to keep on hand. You should see me at home using them to clean my baseboard radiators! haha Love this whole craft idea, I’m pinning for later. #client

    1. You are too sweet Courntey! I think my favorite part of them is the smell. My daughter has been telling everyone about the new wipes and how they smell amazing! Great idea with the baseboard radiators.

  2. I love these pumpkins. Was just wondering, on the small pumpkins, would it work to use petals of silk flowers instead of the paper or in addition to the paper. The flowers are easy to take apart and you can even just snip the petals off of the stems. You can get them at dollar stores. You may have some stashed away in a closet. Just a thought!!!
