Father’s Day is quickly approaching. Have you thought about what you are going to get that special man in your life? I have always been one to sit down with my children around Father’s Day and create a DIY gift. My husband loves receiving gifts from the children that come from the heart. However, he wouldn’t complain if I threw a case of beer in there too! A few years ago, I came across a wonderful idea on a parenting forum that I used to frequent. Why not create DAD a special frame? It’s a gift that is easy to … Continue reading
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
Recently I received Belly Banter boy sticker set for review. Belly Banter is a funny, easy and stylish way to announce baby’s milestones, monthly birthdays, pregnancy stages and make some funny statements; great for photos, photo cards and scrap booking.

We had an interesting turn around when I showed my Belly Banter sticker set to our family members, their reaction was more like “Oh, another stickers, there are tons of them around”. Everything changed when I started using them for my boy photo … Continue reading
While I take thousands of pictures each year, I’m not very good about actually getting those pictures into frames on my walls. I rarely change things up once I’ve got pictures framed, matted, and hung and they end up staying like that permanently. Basically, I’m boring. But, recently my walls got quite the shakeup when the PTPA winning BumbleJax offered to print up a picture that was taken this summer of the kiddos. But, this wasn’t just any ordinary photo print; this was an acrylic mounted print that doesn’t require a frame. As cool as this sounded, even as I … Continue reading
I love the fall: apple picking, sweater weather and the bright, bold colours of leaves. I have never been one to sit out in the heat of the summer soaking up the sun’s rays, but I also don’t enjoy the bitter cold, so the fall is definitely my favourite season of the year. When my husband I moved into our current house about seven years ago, the first thing I requested was a red maple tree because I love the crimson colour the leaves turn every fall. I had visions of children laughing and jumping in a freshly raked pile … Continue reading
