Let’s Celebrate Spring with Some Spring Gifts {Giveaway}

Spring with Hallmark

Who doesn’t love Spring? I’ve been looking up at the gorgeous blue skies that we have been experiencing lately, smelling the warmer air and dreaming of the days of seeing green and not having to wear snow boots to the bus stop! My favourite part about spring, other than the warmer weather, is seeing all of the nature start to bloom again. It truly is a refreshing time of year. Don’t you find yourself energized when you realize that we are leaving all of the snow and ice behind? Hallmark Canada also loves to celebrate spring! I always enjoy seeing … Continue reading

A Safer Alternative to Candles {Giveaway}

Lampe Berger

I was a candle girl and often had many going in my house until one day as I sat nursing my little guy I heard a crackling noise. I got up thinking maybe the stove was left on, but found nothing.

I quickly sprung to action putting the fire out while feeling confused about how this could happen. My glass candle holder had exploded and caused a fire. … Continue reading

Valentine’s Day Garland

I have definitely received a huge dose of creative inspiration to kick off 2014 since discovering Pinterest, and my kids will be benefiting from all of this with our best Valentine season yet! One very unexpected project (which I am perfectly delighted by) is the Homemade Valentine Garland that I made with my 5 year old. Walking through the gift wrap section of a local store, my eye caught a glimpse of a Valentine’s gift bag that was simply scrumptious eye candy for a person who loves the colour pink (me!). Small circles side by side, row by row, with … Continue reading
