Three Tier Stand – for Cupcakes, Collectibles or Toys

If you’re looking to take your next party to the next level, then build a few of these easy three tier stands to showcase your goodies.

Layer them with cupcakes or jars of candies and treats.

Display your collectibles so that you can see all of them.

In our case, Madison wanted to display her toys… so these could be used for that as well.

The instructions are embarrassing – but I’ll write them down anyways.

Buy three pieces of wood:  a 2 x 8, […]

Laser Tag Party

Age 10, do you believe it?

Miss Madison is now a “tween” with all the attitude and aspirations of a full-fledged teen. She has moved on from ponies to painting nails, from playing with her toys to asking Truth or Dare Questions. I know that it was bound to happen and it’s a good thing that she’s moving onto new things but my heart breaks at the thought of her taking yet another step out of my arms […]

Ladies Night – Host a “Favourite Things” Party!

Looking for ideas for a fun ladies night?  Have you heard of “Favourite Things”/ “Favorite Things” parties?

I hosted one a couple of years ago with some besties and the ladies have been hounding me to do another one – so this past Friday we all got together for some wine, some munchies and a LOT of presents!

How does it work?

First you need to set a date and a budget.

A great way to coordinate groups is by using the

My baby is 9?

I say that with a sniffle and a small tear.  You can relate right?

That tiny little bean of a human being that was once curled in fetal position inside a swaddle is growing.  No more gummy smiles, no more wobbly head, no more hiding behind Mom’s leg, no more naps in your arms – they’ve become little people with their own personalities and not much time for your opinion.

Easter treats for the classroom

Do you believe this Friday is Good Friday?

I thought I had at least another week before Easter?  Fortunately the girls reminded me that the Easter Bunny would be arriving sooner than I had planned for – just in time too, because our local Walmart sells out of Easter chocolate the week leading up to the big day.  Literally, sells out!

So I hit the shops this weekend and stocked up so I could get a jump start on Easter treats for […]

March Break Fun at Home

Today is the first day of March Break in my neck of the woods – which means the start of a very LOOOOONG week.

Two kiddos at home, snow and cold – I’m just minutes away from the inevitable “I’m Boooo-oooored!”

Epson Canada recently sent out a tweet on an article I wrote a year ago that I’d completely forgotten about…. but is certainly worth re-visiting again today.  (and a huge thank you to Epson!)

These are the March Break Passports I created last […]

Leprechaun door

As you may know, if you’ve followed the blog for any time, we have a fairy living at our house.

She has a little door in the wall by our staircase complete with mailbox and even a little knocker.  In the Spring, we’ve even found lawn chairs and gardening tools nearby, and at Christmas she leaves the girls a little gift.

I don’t want this fantasy to end.  I want imaginations to thrive and grow and to continue being enchanted.

To that […]
