Savvy Grams Adult Bibs

Last Christmas I wanted to give home-made gifts to everyone in my family.

I had a pattern I was given as a project to make adult-sized bibs and donate them to assisted living homes for the elderly who could no longer live alone.

I loved the idea of these over-sized bibs and thought what a great family gift for anyone they would make. I envisioned them just being kept folded up in the car to use to protect our clothes when going through the take out at fast food places or even to use at home when eating messy foods to protect our clothes.

I can’t even drink a smoothie without spilling it on myself in the car while driving. When I pick up the paper container from my cup holder, the plastic lid pops off and I’ve had smoothie run all over the place and while driving, I can’t stop and clean it up.

Oversized bibs sure come in handy in the car. Even eating a Jimmy John protein style sandwich (lettuce wrapped) as I peel the paper away, I manage to make a whole towards the bottom and, sure enough, leak slurpy sandwich spread all over me.

I make the Adult Bibs (“Bibits”) out of heavy, double sided (reversible) flannel in awesome patterns & styles with big, roomy pockets and Velcro Closures.

If you want something sure to protect your clothes or give as a gift to an elderly person in your life, or anyone of any age, find them for $35 at Parlor House Boutique, my Etsy Store.

• Published writer that used to contribute a monthly article on any given subject to my local newspaper. I am no longer doing this and miss it. • Owned my own custom paint store, "Wild Woods". I called it "wall art" that consisted of murals, glazing, faux painting and also painting vinyl garage doors to look like wood or metal; usually copper. • Have had an interesting past 14 years living off the grid in a remote area in Southern Utah near the Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park in a progressive community that held many informative events with guest speakers, including a number of published authors, and hands-on exercises in various self-sufficient living. No longer living there. • I have another blog about grandparenting. This is a subject near and dear to my heart nowadays. *As part of "the sandwich generation", I was caught between helping my adults kids (usually with their kids) as well as caring for an elderly parent, my mother, who was suffering from dementia. I want to do some writing on the aspect of full time care givers to people with Alzheimer's as well. I feel I have learned a lot about this. ~ What a Juggling Act! Somewhere with all those balls up in the air, my own dreams had been put on hold for too long and now, after losing my mother just recently, and my grandkids in school, I hope to rekindle them. My husband and I are super busy doing major remodeling jobs on a house we purchased two years ago as well as extensive yard work. The house and yard projects, which include the restoration of an old cottage built in the 1800's that sits on the far, back corner of our three-fourths acre lot we own are keeping us both really busy. Amidst the ongoing projects, I try to squeeze in a moment here and there to work on my blogs. Creativity has always been an essential part of who I am and when I stop doing things like this, I feel like a robot mechanically moving around, just getting the necessities done. Art, Music, Writing, Gardening, Home Interior Decorating, Water Activities like swimming and kayaking are the things I crave and try to find time to do. We have to "make it a good day"!
