FREE Printable Day Camp Packing List ~ Get Organized with @OliversLabels {Giveaway}

Day Camp Packing List

Summer is just around the corner! Do you know what that means? For many parents, that means getting organized for trips and summer camps! It doesn’t matter how old your child is, when they are at summer camp, there is a HIGH probability of items getting misplaced and lost. Children are often in a variety of places including swimming pools, lunch rooms, outdoors and more which increases the chances that items will stay behind. One way to help lost items find their way back to your child quickly is by labelling EVERYTHING! I label everything that my children wear from … Continue reading

Gather your Clothing Donations Up This Weekend for the @Tide Collection Truck and Discover the #Plusabilities


I go through our closets, specifically the kids’ closets a few times a month to collect clothing that no longer fits so that we can give them to various charities. We talk about donating our gently used items on a regular basis because it is important to me that my children learn how to feel good about giving to those in need or to help a specific cause. Tide has some upcoming Clothing Donation Day Events that will not only help you de-clutter your home, but it will also help you to teach your children about the value of giving … Continue reading

A DIY Easter Table Place Setting Idea

Easter is such a beautiful time of year. The sun seems to shine more, the tulips start to bloom and the smell of spring is in the air.

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

A #Norwex Wedding Wish List from a Friend

One of my dear friends is getting married this spring and I suggested to her that she make a Norwex Wishlist because she is one of the people who I have already convinced to love Norwex, not that it takes that much convincing! I first started off my Norwex experience with the Norwex Starter Kit which includes an Enviro Cloth, a Polish … Continue reading

It never fails that at this time of the year, I start realizing how much stuff we have, and how many toys my boys have. It always seems like no matter how much I get rid of it always seems messy. I do my best to organize ahead of time so that when we get all the new gifts from family and friends we have a “home” for each item. Hubby is a very organized person, and I have places for my things. I have been working hard with our older 2 boys. But the youngest was doing really well … Continue reading
