Make Your Own Lacing Cards for Preschoolers

These easy and durable lacing cards can help develop your preschoolers fine motor and vocabulary skills!

I created these lacing cards for my youngest daughter today, but let me tell you, she had to fight off her older sister for them!  They had so much fun weaving the twine through the holes – so even though it says preschoolers, older kids can have fun with them too!    Want to make your own lacing cards?  This method is easy and durable!  Here’s what you’ll need: thin cardboard (think the back of a notebook – I used the {Read More}

What I Loved About BlogPodium 2014

Cotton candy in strawberry, pineapple, and guava flavours?  Yum!

Two weeks ago, I was lucky enough to attend the BlogPodium conference in Toronto, Ontario.  Before this, I had only been to the SNAP conference in Utah, so this was my first Canadian blogging conference.  I was super nervous at first, because I didn’t have very many tight relationships when it came to Canadian bloggers like I have with the girls I attend SNAP with, and I am always nervous without a group around me. Thankfully the nerves didn’t last {Read More}

$5, 5 Minute Party Photo Booth Backdrop

This party photobooth backdrop can be created for under $5 and in less than 5 minutes!

One of the things my oldest daughter likes the most at her parties is having a fun photo booth with her friends.  (My youngest?  Heck, it’s hard enough to even get a picture of her blowing out her candles before she’s gone like the wind!)  So for the past few years, I have been creating two backdrops for every party – one for the food table and one for the photo booth.  Then this year, I stopped and though – {Read More}

Free Printable Halloween Banner


Is the weather starting to cool off where you live?  I wore my boots at BlogPodium last weekend for the first time, and while they were a nice change, I’m not sure if I’m fully ready to say goodbye to summer yet!  Either way, Halloween is coming soon, which means its time to get those costumes ready (and for us in Canada, making sure those costumes fit over snowsuits!) and the house dressed up for little trick or treaters.  This {Read More}

I looked around my craft room the other day and realized I had a LOT of craft supplies.  As I started tidying up, I thought about what I would do if I ever needed to downsize.  What supplies could I just never live without?

Chalkboard House Number Mum Planter

Use Martha STewart Crafts chalkboard paint, liquid chalk, and adhesive silkscreens to create a great piece of home decor that is easy to change each season!

A long time ago, I went on this trip to an old abandoned farmhouse, where I scored all sorts of amazing (and free) pieces.  One of those pieces was this perfect old milk can. To jazz it up for Fall, and turn it into a planter for my mums, I decided to use this new liquid chalk product from Martha Stewart Crafts®, along with her chalkboard paint and adhesive silkscreens. Now, I’m pretty sure I have shared my views on {Read More}

Nerf Rebelle Party

This Nerf Rebelle party combined lots of fun and affirmation in an all around Girl Power celebration! #NerfRebelle

My daughter has been in love with the Nerf Rebelle line ever since it debuted, so when I was asked to host a launch party for the new Nerf Rebelle Secrets & Spies line that debuts this fall, I was over the moon!  I knew my daughter would freak out, especially since the line featured a new product – Agent Bow, a bow and arrow with foam arrows instead of darts!  I was right.  She freaked. I love the Nerf {Read More}

Peanut Butter Poke Cake Brownies

Use your favourite brownie recipe - boxed or from scratch - to create these delicious, ooey gooey, peanut butter poke cake brownies!

This is a sponsored giveaway with Mums the Word Network and Kraft. All opinions are my own. One place that I always look for great cooking and baking inspiration is the Kraft website.  For one, I know their recipes use ingredients that I am not only familiar with, but will be able to find.  When you live in a small town with no specialty grocery stores, that is such an important thing for me! And when I saw this recipe {Read More}

3D Gallery Wall with Fabric Decal Frames

Create a fun mini 3D photo gallery with these fabric wall decals - they are perfect for small spaces!

I had the opportunity to try out the Wallternatives line a few months ago when I created these Alphabet Canvases for my daughter’s room, and I fell in love.  These aren’t like vinyl – they are fabric (so they have a canvas sort of texture) and can be removed and repositioned as many times as you want – which I really put to the test trying to find the perfect layout for this little gallery wall.  They don’t lose their {Read More}
