DIY Tea Tags with #CelestialSeasonings and a Giveaway!

My husband’s Grandma does not have coffee in her house. Let me back track a bit. The first year we started dating (over 17 years ago) we went to his Grandma’s house for Christmas morning, which also happens to be her birthday. When I didn’t have time to stop and get a coffee, I thought “It’s ok, I’ll just make one there.” Only to discover there was tea and only tea. Why? Because his Grandma only drinks tea. This kind…

The story of our Farmhouse Table and why we chose Ontario Wood

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know there are two things I really love. The first is wood grain. I really (and I mean really) love the look of natural wood. The rings, the nicks and cuts and all of its character. The second is that I am very passionate about reusing and re-purposing materials. I love taking items meant for a landfill and transforming them into home decor objects. A quick search for the term upcycled…

DIY Sushi Costume and a Ginger Wasabi Headband

I can’t remember how old our daughter was when she first tried sushi. But what I do remember is that she was very little and how my husband and I were staring at her devouring salmon in a moment of bewilderment. At a time where most of her peers were begging for McDonald’s and Pizza, she wanted sashimi rolls. So for Halloween this year, she decided to go as her favourite food ever. Sushi! Here’s what we used to make…

DIY – Raven Teen Titans Costume

For a woman who loves Star Wars, superhero movies and comic books, I hang my head in shame at not having a clue what or who Teen Titans were, up until this past year. Because this past year our 7 year old a.k.a. the reason Netflix exists in our house, has watched every episode of Teen Titans GO on repeat, seven days a week. She originally wanted to be Mavis from Hotel Transylvania for Halloween this year, but once Teen…

How to get the best nights sleep thanks to Dyson & a Giveaway!

What comes to mind when you think of the brand Dyson? The coveted vacuums that everyone wants right? I’ll bet if I were to do a poll of random strangers, the vast majority would welcome a Dyson vacuum into their home, even if they hate vacuuming. *Raises hand* In which case when Dyson’s PR Agency contacted me, as soon as I saw their email in my inbox I gasped and thoughts “Am I going to be asked to review a…

DIY Fall Felt Wreath

It’s mid-September and I am already knee deep in Halloween costume making. This is my favourite season. I live for Fall. I love everything about Fall. That includes the colder weather. Sweater weather is better weather. Yes I am that person. Because I spent way too much time in the felt section of Michael’s this past week, I decided to make a nice Fall wreath to hang on our front door. I am halfway done making our Christmas wreath. Don’t…

10 Baby items that I couldn’t live without & a Best Buy Giveaway! #BestBuyBaby

Our oldest “baby” is now 10. Ten. I don’t know how this happened but it did and I am in complete denial. If there’s one thing I remember about the early days, the sleep deprived baby years, is that when you’re a new parent, the amount of products out there for your baby can be really overwhelming. So when Best Buy asked me to share what got me through those years, particularly the first year, I instantly thought of several…
