Maternity Top Tutorial, with Jenn of a Jennuine Life

September 1st, 2011


Hello there, DIY maternity readers! I am super excited to be visiting here. I’m Jenn from A Jennuine Life. A while back, I hosted my first blog competition, and Megan honored my little blog with both an inspiration post, and a prize offering - amazing, right!?

When Megan put out the call for a little help, I jumped on the opportunity to return the favor! Here’s a post I put together as part of my Mother to Be, Being, Been competition which focused on DIY fashions for pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum Moms.

last minute help

August 24th, 2011

Hey all! I am so sorry i haven’t been able to put a tutorial up this week! I feel terrible about it!

My hubby is away on business and my parents are flying in from Australia to visit in 2 days, so i’m kind of running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off right now!

Unfortunately that means I haven’t prepared anything for the next week or so – so I was wondering, would any of you be interested in doing a last minute guest post for DIYM?

I would love it if anyone would be able to help do say a Your DIYM roundup, or a Mommy Spotlight, or even a tutorial (finished item, or even a sewing technique) – that would be amazing!

I know this is last minute, so if none of you have time, I toootally understand, I just thought i would check since i’m a little run off my feet!
