DIY: How to Sew a Quiet Book

What is a quiet book? A quiet book is a soft book typically made of fabric or felt full of interactive activities to help babies/toddlers learn and keep them preoccupied. I’m not sure whether it’s called a quiet book because the book is made of soft/quiet materials or if it makes your child stay quiet because they’re engaged… but either way, they are fun to make and to play with!

I had never heard of a quiet book until my sister tagged me in a Facebook video about one as a “subtle” hint to make for her then 1 year old daughter, my niece! So I had it in the back of my mind to make one for her and then ended up CRAM crafting the week before xmas to make it! I actually made this quiet book a whole YEAR ago, but it’s never too late to post about it! I’m really happy with how it all turned out!

This blog post will:
·        Go through my process of how I went about figuring out how to make a quiet book
·        Walk through how I created the individual pages and bound the book together, step-by-step. I’ll also include any helpful links as additional reference material!

Body Reset Diet Review

About two months ago, I completed the 15-day Body Reset Diet by Harley Pasternak, trainer and nutritionist to the stars. Surprisingly, during my research before doing it, I didn't find that many personal posts of people completing the diet and their results, however, I decided to give this a try anyway. I wanted to share my experience and results and let this post be an additional data point for someone else thinking about trying it!

In this review, I'm going to go through:
  • Why I decided to do the Body Reset Diet
  • What the Body Reset Diet is
  • What it was like completing the diet 
  • My results 
  • Final thoughts
