Baby stuff is so expensive. Like, really. To get the crib, dresser, and bedding set that I wanted would have cost us $500. Since we're poor I've been trying to get everything used instead. This means that we've bought the crib, dresser, and bedding set for $120 instead. This also means some extra work.
The bedding set is a cute safari theme and it came with a lamp whose lampshade was falling apart. The girl I bought it from said I just need to get some cloth tape to reattach the metal frames. If such a thing as cloth tape really exists, I couldn't find it. I instead bought bias tape and liquid stitch.

What I learned:
1. I have no idea what craft materials are available in this world.
2. It's hard to attach things to something circular.
3. I need to practice my craft skills.
4. Liquid stitch is easier to apply with my finger than a q-tip.
