Expecting mommies often hear about the benefits of playing music for your baby while it’s in the womb. The old school version of putting headphones around your belly has finally been revamped! Now, with Lullabelly, you can plug in your iPod or MP3 Player and let your baby listen to any music of your choosing.

Some experts say listening to music in the womb encourages learning, language development and memory skills. Expand your baby's horizons by playing lullabies, audio books, foreign language recordings, and introduce him or her to the voices of friends and family who don't live nearby.  Plus, playing the same music after birth can help your baby sleep better. The Lullabelly prenatal music belt offers a more modern, comfortable way to help your baby’s development with your favorite music! And it’s a great way for daddy to get involved, let him pick the tunes for the iPod!  
 
Any mom-to-be will tell you that stretching a headset across your belly is clumsy and hard to position. The Lullabelly prenatal music belt can be used whether you are on the go or just relaxing home. It is extremely soft, flexible, lightweight and comfortable. The large pocket is ideal for carrying your portable MP3 player or other small accessories. The Lullabelly even comes with built-in speakers and adjustable volume control.  Choose from pastel green, blue or pink, yellow, chocolate & mint.

Who knew that broken bottles and jars would be in inspiration for fun, trendy jewelry?  Bottled Up Designs did, and gave new meaning to the saying-one man's trash is another man's treasure, by turning pieces of broken glass into an amazing collection of beautiful necklaces and earrings.  Available at OrganicBug.com, Bottled Up Designs gives every fashionista over 20 stylish reasons to think green.

Inspiration can be an elusive quest but Laura Bergman of Bottled Up Designs found hers when she paired creative imagination with a true respect for the environment. The artist has spent countless hours over the last 20 years collecting pretty pieces of glass from old bottle dumps in the rural farmlands and natural wooded habitats of the Pennsylvania Amish country where she grew up. Laura gives new life to these sparkling remnants of broken bottles and jars which were carelessly cast out over several decades and now threaten the environment and the wildlife that share the land she calls home.  The sight of a young deer resting among the broken shards of glass, and the knowledge that foxes and squirrels also face danger running among the debris keep Laura’s wheels of inspiration turning as she continues to clean up the land around her. 

With an eye for the historical beauty of these long abandoned pieces and a keen desire to keep them out of the trash stream, Laura reclaims and converts her glass collection into a dazzling array of fine jewelry.  Each selection arrives on a card that details The Story of the Glass including its age and an explanation of its original use.  Stunning cobalt blue from Noxema bottles dating back to the 1920’s along with antique beer bottles from the 1800’s make up just some of the glass that she collects and transforms into pendants and earrings of various shapes and color.
