My first season with IHSD started in the fall of 2008 in a coastal town with a one classroom preschool site next to a pumpkin patch. After two years of teaching, I continued to stay engaged with IHSD as a volunteer, an advocate, a member of the growth committee, and most recently a staff member. My seasons with IHSD have been nothing short of mission-driven with the growing belief that all children should have access to quality early childhood education.

I just completed my 2nd diaper bouquet and updated my DIY guide here (to remind myself how to make them more efficiently in the future–ha!). I got the diapers, ribbon, and tulle from Amazon. I got the vase, tissue paper, and flowers from Dollar Tree. I got the hair ties and sticks from Daiso. The arrangement becomes very big and top heavy, and I didn’t get to put enough weight into the last 2 arrangements to keep it more stable. Mental note!
