How to Throw a Block Party + Printable Invitation Template

How to Throw a Block Party + Free Printable Invitation Template

When we purchased our house three years ago, the realtor had told us what a great neighbourhood we had, and how they threw block parties at the end of summer, which I, of course, thought was the bee’s knees.  However, the first summer passed with no party.  The second summer was half of over, and still no word of a party.  I mentioned it to my new neighbour who had just moved in that summer, and she said “Well, let’s {Read More}

Hi everyone! I meant to share this with you on Sunday, but I ended up spending the long Canada Day weekend at the cottage, where internet access is limited (which sometimes I am appreciative of, other times, like this, I wish I could just write a quick update!)  Anyway, the big news was that I was sharing a super fun post over at Skip To My Lou!  She is having a really cool “Fun Crafts for Kids” series, and she asked {Read More}

Sweet Pickle and Apple Potato Salad

This sweet pickle and apple salad is the perfect side for a summer BBQ! Put a twist on the old potato salad recipe with this East Coast favorite.

Growing up, I loved potato salad – it was this delicious pickle and apple potato salad that was both crunchy and a little bit sweet.  It was my favorite, even though our get-togethers were filled with so many salad varieties to choose from, mostly potato based.  There was the bright yellow mustard salad (potatoes, mashed and creamed with mustard and a few other things that I can’t remember), and it’s cousin, the bright pink beet salad (potatoes mashed with beet {Read More}

Personalized Pillowcases with Heat Transfer Vinyl

Create personalized pillowcases with this beautiful new neon glitter heat transfer! The kids can autograph them for an added bonus - makes a great sleepover activity or birthday gift!

My oldest daughter loves neon – any colour, doesn’t matter, as long as it’s blindingly bright. So when I saw the new neon heat transfer vinyl (or iron on vinyl) from Expressions Vinyl, and saw that it was also glittered, I had to have it for one of her party activities. I had planned to make personalized pillowcases that the girls could autograph.  The neon heat transfer was just the cherry on the sundae that made this project perfect. This {Read More}

Color Your Own Printable Bookmarks

I’ve come to realize that I have many addictions when it comes to my craft. You  know how some people have a total weakness for designer fabric, or a soft spot for the chunky yarn? Well, my addictions run a long list.  First of all, there’s paper straws.  Totally addicted.  Bought some new ones this weekend in fact – there was a small opening in the XL Ziploc bag that I limit my stash to, and those grey chevron beauties {Read More}

Alphabet Canvas Wall Art

Alphabet Canvas Wall Art - a quick way to add some beautiful artwork to your children's room!

About a year ago, I stenciled my daughters bedroom wall with the Herringbone stencil from Royal Design Studio.  I added some molding about 3/4 of the way up, and had fully intended on adding some art to the top – I even asked you for suggestions, remember that?  Well… one year later, I still couldn’t decide between an alphabet and some sort of frame/canvas decoration. When I met with the awesome Wallternatives crew  at SNAP, I had a genius idea of combining {Read More}
