Diaper Party Success!

Our diaper party last night was a wonderful success. We are so thankful to have so many supportive friends and family members who help us out with our projects. We couldn't do it without all of you! Thank you to Kim for letting us use your house and having snacks, mom for making dinner, and Karen for taking pictures and of course everyone who came to help!

We had about 22 ladies come to help out. My mom and her friend hosted and made dinner for all of the guests. He had dinner and chatted and then got to work! We had the honor of making diapers for Carter and several of his friends.

This morning's count showed that we have 191 sets of diapers (382 individual diapers) completely finished, we have around 650 diapers that only need topstitching and around 300 more diapers cut out ready to be sewed. Awesome. That's all I can say.

We currently have in our possession diapers to help around 200 grieving families. I hate that there is such a great need, but glad that we can hopefully do something to ease some pain.

 We also are making wonderful progress on our care package donations! My sweet nephews and niece, as well as a few other families, went through all of their Halloween candy and brought over a big bag to donate. I continue to be humbled and amazed by all the support and generosity of those around us. I have been dubbed "the dreamer" among my diapering friends and sometimes I feel like I always have ideas that I want to do and that I am always asking somebody for something. But people continue to give and give and I can't thank you enough. As someone who has been there, please know that these families greatly appreciate all you have done for them and we appreciate all you have done for us. 


  1. That is so great! Kuddos to you ladies!

  2. Keep dreaming, my sweet friend. Keep dreaming. xoxo

  3. I've been making diapers for you, and so far have around 30 sets almost done. I wanted to ask what size safety pins you use for them. And, do you have a deadline for me to get them to you? We live in Lynnwood, but my husband goes to Bellingham for work at least one a week so he could bring them up. Thanks, Elaine

    1. Elaine, that is so wonderful!! Thank you so much. There is no deadline as we are always sending out diapers. As soon as we finish one donation, there is another to be worked on! We use size 2 for the smaller diapers and size 3 for the large diapers. Feel free to email me ( so we can work out drop off/pick up. What a wonderful surprise this was to wake up to :)
