Easy Gift Wrap Image Transfer Photo Frame

My daughter is getting married ONE MONTH FROM TODAY (!) so I’ve been working like mad on things that will work in relation to the upcoming bridal shower as well as the wedding. Since we have some lovely engagement photos around here in need of framing, I decided that a pretty heart shaped frame would […]

CraveTO: Good Food, Good Beer, Good Music

Have you heard of CraveTO? It’s an outdoor festival celebrating Toronto street food, craft beer, and DJs.  Now, I don’t know about you, but that sure sounds like fun to me!

Happy Spring!  I can’t wait to get outside and enjoy the lovely weather. We have  a few Spring events leading up to my daughter’s wedding and I’m trying to make decorations that will work not only for the parties but later, in someone’s home as well. Her wedding is a flower theme so the bridal […]

So, to continue the Feelin’ SoFabulous quest I have started, I’m continuing on with trying to improve the sleep that I get – I’m finding that it’s still taking me too long to fall asleep and then I’m waking up very early but not feeling refreshed and by lunch time I’m dragging.  A few weeks […]

Hello friends! I hope you had a lovely weekend.  We had a very quiet Easter for the most part around here.  Spent one day with our extended family making crafts, doing Easter egg hunts, and stuffing ourselves silly at a Chinese all you can eat buffet.  The rest of the weekend was pretty low-key.  What […]

I don’t remember my family having Easter egg hunts when I was young. Oh, the Easter bunny hid our baskets but for some reason, I always really really wanted an egg hunt. So, when I got older, any chance I got, I would organize a hunt for my nieces and nephews, my Girl Guide troop, […]
