About Shelly @ 100Things2Do.ca

Single Mom, Blogger, DIYer, furniture refinisher and lover of all things crafty.

Why? My struggle with marketing.

This is a blog post I wrote in 2015 – so I’m not as thin and sexy (or even married) as I was back then…

who am I kidding – I’ve never been this thin and sexy (lol) but my conundrum/frustration is still valid – I think that marketing TO women is missing the mark.

(and yes – before you all rush to ask – I AM available for underwear modelling… with a mask and Doritos)


I have a bee in my bonnet.

I […]

These are a few of my favourite things… Best buys 2019

I’ve been meaning to write this blog post for some time, and with the Holidays right around the corner it seemed like a great opportunity to share a few of my favourite things… just in case you know someone that these might be good for.

As a blogger, I often get “samples” to test and review.  There have been times when I’ve had to refuse a review because the product itself just wasn’t up to my standards – and I don’t […]

Scrap wood playing card holder – help for little/old hands

Know someone with little hands, old hands, achey hands, shakey hands…. you get the idea.  Gifting them this simple scrap wood playing card holder can help bring the fun back into games and it only takes minutes to make!

Good morning everyone!

We had an awesome weekend here in SW Ontario – Sunday brought freezing rain all day and then Monday we received a light coating of snow overtop.  Dangling icicles from evergreens with just a frosting of snow – magical.  Treacherous […]

DIY Doghouse – Keep your pets warm this winter

Looking for DIY doghouse plans for a larger breed dog?  This DIY dog house (with free building plans), is perfect for our Berner and would easily fit labs, golden retrievers and other breeds in the 100lb range.

London has introduced new bi-laws where anyone caught leaving their dogs outside for an extended time in the cold can and will be fined.  I am 100% on board with this – I abhor animal cruelty – BUT Miss Lacey is a Bernese MOUNTAIN […]

Easy Marbled Ornaments

With clear plastic ornaments and a bit of acrylic craft paint from the dollar store, you can make these easy marbled ornaments in any colour combination to match your Holiday decor.

I had a dilemma; a minor one, but a small nagging concern that was eating at me…  an empty bowl in my Christmas family room.

I know, first world problems – but it was the last element I wanted to complete before photographing my Christmas tree for the blog.

I used […]

Christmas Tree 2019

Introducing the 100Things2Do Christmas tree 2019!  A white and champagne colour scheme with natural elements thrown in for texture – this year’s Christmas tree shines day and night.

2019 has been a crazy-awful-horrible year at our house.  If you follow along, you know that the girls and I (and a menagerie of pets) found ourselves alone and struggling with all of the transformations that entailed.

It’s been almost a year and we have survived (and thrived) through birthdays, vacations, holidays and time […]

Chalk Couture – Screen printing you can do at home!

Have you ever been curious to try screen printing? What if I told you it’s something you can easily do in your own home with these pre-made Chalk Couture transfers?  I went to a really neat class last weekend and got to play around a bit and had to share.

I guess I should start with “this is NOT a sponsored post” – I don’t work for the company or earn any monies by telling you about this (not that I […]
