{Baby Blogging} TML Creates

My Dear Friends,

I'd like to introduce you to Tara, owner of TML Creates, an Etsy shop that specializes in diaper cakes, boo-boo bags & burp cloths that are sure to wow!  Tara puts considerable time and effort into each of her designs, taking care to make sure each product is held to the highest standards. 

TML Creates produces their products in a smoke-free and pet-free home, so you have the security of knowing your items will be fresh & smelling great!

Tara makes the cutest mini diaper cakes around.  Each one is specially made with Pampers Swaddlers Newborn diapers, tied with a gorgeous ribbon and adorned with a keepsake ornament that could be used as a decoration for the baby's room or baby book.  The cakes are about 18' around and 4 1/2' high. 

(Click any picture on this post to be taken directly to the Etsy listing)

Here are some of my favorite diaper cakes:

The burp cloths from TML Creates are multi-functional.  They can be used as burp cloths, cloth diapers, or changing pads!  Don't worry about the material shrinking, because both the cloth & fabric have been pre-shrunk.  These lovely, colorful cloths come three to an order so you definitely get your money's worth! 

Here are a few of my favorite designs:

TML Creates now carries great baby shower gifts!  Order a great set of 3 awesome gifts for a new baby or baby shower, all for under $25.00.  In each gift set are: a set of "boo boo bags" (These are hot/cold therapy bags. To use as hot bag, microwave on high for 30 to 45 seconds.  Make sure to test before placing on skin as all microwaves vary. To use as cold bag, simply place in freezer till cold - usually about 2 hours.  The rice bags themselves are not washable but the slip covers are.), a mini diaper cake (Made of 8 disposable Pamper diapers, which are 100% usable. They are wrapped with ribbon and a wood cut out and topped with curly ribbon.) and a set of 6 ply premium cloth diapers with fabric  sewn to center panel to add fun and color (Both fabric and diapers have been preshrunk. These can be washed over and over and still look new! Great for nursing moms, burp cloths, changing pads and much more.) That's a lot of goodies! 

Here are some examples of the gift sets:
