Sniffle Sleeve Tutorial – April Fool’s!!!!

Hey there!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.  We had a beautiful weekend spending time with lots of family.  It was really wonderful.  However, we’ve been fighting a cold/flu for quite a while now and even though the sunshine has been out, cold and flu season is not quite over!  Today I wanted to share a really quick tutorial for a great solution to the runny noses you may be experiencing – a sniffle sleeve!  I don’t know about you, but when the girls are sick, I am running back and forth grabbing them tissues and wiping noses.  It gets exhausting!  This sniffle sleeve is the perfect solution.  Your children will always have tissue right where they can use it and no more wiping their noses on their hands or sleeves!!  Plus, it looks really cute!  Ready to add a sniffle sleeve to your kids’ shirts?  Grab a roll of toilet paper and let’s get started!

 See how easy those are?  And they’re perfect for everyone in the family.  Functional and pretty! You know how I like a little ruffle – I’m glad to help my girls when they’re feeling crummy.  Less time running for tissues and more time snuggling!

    I am so sad…I have already been fooled once this morning (Boden, a UK company, said the men’s skirt was back/side note–adorable kids clothes!!!) and seriously believed you did/do this. I am so foolish! Thank goodness, because I didn’t want to HOO–I checked Project Run and Play–my vote was for your beautiful dress and you WON!! CONGRATS!

    • heeheeehee! And thank you!

      I do not know what happened there…”I didn’t want to HOO?” I meant to say I didn’t want to hurt your feelings! I think there was then a “YEAH HOO” in regards to your winning. You got me though!
