Bordreaux's Butt Paste! Keeping Your Baby Dry!

This post brought to you by Boudreaux's Butt Paste. All opinions are 100% mine.



Yes, I realize this product has a name that can be used in endless jokes and limericks.  I think it is actually part of it's appeal.  And the baby on the front is too cute as well!

What is more important is that is really works to keep your baby dry and comfortable and prevent that terrible diaper rash that seems inevitable in the cold, wintry months.  I remember how much I struggled with that when Sarah was young and how I thought when I first heard about Boudreaux's Butt Paste and the problems that it solves so easily.

I really like that it is not greasy and that it has a pleasant scent; that is a big part of what sets this product apart from others in the same category.  This allows me to use Boudreaux's Butt Paste on my own skin when it gets chafed and raw. And not only on my butt either! The same ingredients that protect baby also protect me and that is just an added plus in my book.  How many other products can both you and your baby use?

Imagining The Possibilities: This Is The Moment!

I have been noticeably absent from the usual posts on this blog.  There is a good reason for that and it is time to share that reason with my readers and followers.  And that reason is all about new possibilities and snatching that one moment in time that affords us the ability to change our direction.

I was recently contacted via a Facebook message that a person from a long ago past was looking to talk to me.  I hesitated at first thinking, " Maybe this was a can of worms that should stay sealed?".  I thought about the possible motivations as well as if this opening of communication would have a negative effect on my life.

I opened my mind and my heart in that instant and decided that if I limited myself by trying to second guess another persons motivations without opening my ears to listen perhaps I would be making a mistake.  I reasoned that there was possibility in stepping outside the box and taking a chance.

And I am so glad that I did!  For now it is important to know that in a single instant my whole life has changed and one small possibility has morphed into a lifetime of endless possibilities. 

I have learned that you are only limited by the chances that you choose not to take and that risk is an inherent part of reward.

Oprah understands these types of possibilities; it is literally the story of her life.  As you might have heard, she is launching "OWN" ( Oprah Winfrey Network)  in January 2011, with a focus on inspiring people to live their own best lives, much as I have recently begun to realize through my own, very personal experience.

No doubt she will focus on the positive sides of life and the host of possibilities that is available for each and every one of us, including you, my dear readers. 

I have wonderful dreams for not only this New Years, but for many New Years to come; my own possibilities are now seemingly endless and without restraint.  I know that if I project positive that positive will naturally come my way.  This experience has shown me how powerful possibilities really can be.

I have hopes of a life shared with love, respect, and laughter; I know my possibilities are rapidly becoming my realities.

Take a chance once in awhile; never be afraid to dream and when you dream, dream big! 

Watch with me in January to see how Oprah can inspire you to live your best life and let me know what possibilities are within your grasp as the year 2011 begins.

Heart Of Haiti: Using Commerce and Culture To Effect Change

Everyone remembers the devastating images from earlier this year of the earthquake in Haiti.  We wept, we gave, we sent our help so that they could rebuild.

 The Heart of Haiti initiative is part of that rebuilding.  By partnering with this holiday season, it is allowing employment of 350 artists in Haiti and has provided some financial benefits for an estimated 4,000 to 5,000 people in the country

Instead of providing one-time funding through charity, Heart of Haiti is creating opportunities for Haitian artisans to earn income with dignity by creating jobs and income for the people of Haiti.

Through the sale of Heart of Haiti products, artisans are able to earn life-changing income for themselves, their families, and their communities. The initiative is enabling artisans to repair homes, pay school fees, and feed and clothe their families. The income also allows them to have access to better nutrition, improved education and healthcare.

Each item is designed by a master Haitian artist and made by hand in Haiti
Each product is made from recycled materials and the collection includes 40 different home decor items and accessories

Products include vases, candleholders, serving trays, picture frames, mirrors, coasters, necklaces, clutch purses and more and mst items fall in the $25-$60 range

You can see the collection at here. Take a minute and buy something beautiful and at the same time bring change to the lives of the people of Haiti.

Disclosure: I am writing this post to spread the word about Heart of Haiti through a Mom Bloggers Club member program and that you will receive a Heart of Haiti pendant as a thank you
