A #Norwex Wedding Wish List from a Friend

Toe Gifts ~ a Family Tradition

This is the time of year when many traditions and memories are made. One of my most favourite traditions in our family is the opening of our stockings. We used to open them on Christmas morning, but I we found that stockings take a LONG time to open and our kids just didn’t have the attention span, so we decided to move it to Christmas Eve. My husband started a new tradition a few years ago of putting a “toe gift in the bottom of each of our stockings. A toe gift goes in at the bottom of the stocking … Continue reading

A Gift for My Son from @MySiblingDolls

Meet Tommy, a doll for boys! I have to give you some background on how I came across Tommy! When my son was 2.5 years old, he regularly played with his baby doll. He carried it around the house, playing Daddy and he often brought his baby with us grocery shopping and out on various adventures. One day, we were leaving the doctor’s office and he was carrying his baby by its hand and someone yelled out in passing, “Why isn’t your son carrying a REAL toy for boys like a truck or something?” I didn’t process what they had … Continue reading

EASY DIY Microwavable Beanbags with @CamelotFabrics {Sewing Craft} {Gift Idea}

Last Spring, my daughter and I took a Mommy/daughter introduction class to sewing. I have always wanted to sew and after taking this class, I was completely inspired to learn how to sew. I don’t ever envision myself cutting out patterns and sewing complex projects, but it sure is handy to know how to sew to repair ripped material and to make simple projects. My first (and so far my only) project was to figure out how to sew a Microwavable Beanbag. My first attempt was at the end of the summer when my daughter and I decided to make … Continue reading
