Looking back on my childhood I can recall some of my favourite toys that I loved to play with. One of my favourites was my view finder. So recently when I was provided the opportunity to create my own custom view master I was extremely excited. It took me awhile to pinpoint the exact memories that I wanted to capture, but in the end I decided to zero in on my recent trip to Mexico this past January. To create the View Master was easy. I had to visit Image 3D, create an account, and from there I was flying… … Continue reading

The weather has been so nice here this past week and we have spent almost all our time outside lately. Because of that, we are really late starting our Mothers Day craft with the daycare. My bad, but I hated to keep these kids inside when that’s where we’ve been all winter long. No worries. I scoured Pinterest until I found something that I thought looked cute and fun, and relatively easy since I have a young group right now. This is what I found: Cute right? It was pretty easy, but ours looks just a little different. First, we … Continue reading

I’m not always the craftiest person, and I’ve been known to start a million projects I never end up finishing, but when I’m backed into a corner and need something I can’t seem to find anywhere else, I typically do a fairly good job of improvising…. even if that means making something from scratch. These little dresses came about that very way as I was trying to clothe 4 flower girls for my cousin’s wedding and not finding anything that had the style or price tag I was hoping for. I had never made a tutu before, so admittedly I … Continue reading
Like any baby, when they’re first born, you take photographs. Lots of photographs. Tens. Hundreds, Thousands. I’m not joking.
Especially when it’s your first child, you capture every moment. The first day, the first bath, the first sleep in the crib, smile, roll, etc. Something I also did was take a shot of Isabelle every single week while she was in the NICU, to see how big she was getting, and then every month in the nursery chair.
Sometimes, as mommy brain sets in, you forget these milestones or dates. Here’s where Belly Banter helps. Belly Banter is a company that makes monthly and milestone stickers for your babe. Continue reading
