Chalk Couture

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 […]

Make your own Christmas shirt

Do you have access to a cutting machine?  If so, (even if it’s a friend that has one) you can make your own Christmas shirt in a few easy steps!

I have to start by saying these ideas are plagiarized.

I don’t mean I was “inspired by”, I mean I copied the idea entirely – without improvement or alteration.

But the idea, and the Christmas shirts are SO CUTE!

You can’t improve on perfection right?  And since Artsy Fartsy Mama is giving away […]

Dollar Store Hallowe’en Wreath

Entice ghouls and goblins to your door with this simple and inexpensive Dollar Store Hallowe’en wreath!  Deco-mesh, a wreath form and some seasonal picks are all you need.

Good morning!  Happy October!

Truthfully, I only like October for the weather – I’m not really a Hallowe’en fan.

We have HUNDREDS of kids come by our house Trick-or-Treating – literally hundreds – and the constant doorbell ringing makes me crazy. I wish all the kids would just come to my house in one massive […]

Make your own car decal

Upgrade your wheels with a simple, funny DIY car decal like this “Objects in mirror are losing” I made today.

I don’t know what’s gotten into me lately, but I’ve been full of piss and vinegar!  Off-colour jokes, highly competitive games of Blink – The World’s Fastest Game! (affiliate link, but an AWESOME game!!), pinball, PacMan and an overall urge to laugh and cause trouble.

It’s wonderful!

I’ve […]

Make Your Own Beeswax Wraps

Canada is implementing (or trying to implement) a ban on certain ‘single-use plastics’ by 2021; things like straws, plastic plates, cutlery, bags and stir sticks to name a few.  It’s not nearly enough to reverse the damage we’ve done to the planet, but it is a move in the right direction and these DIY beeswax wraps are just one of many ways our family is participating.

Name Photo Collage

Looking for a personal and heartfelt gift idea?  What about a photo collage of letters (from someplace special to you) to make up the recipients name – like these name photo collages for my girls.

I / my girls received the sweetest gift the other week; a friend – and fantastic photographer – gifted my girls with photographs of signs that he had taken from all over town.  Places in our city that we’ve seen or visited so that each letter […]
