It has been far too long since I have posted, but I am very excited today to be sharing a different design project of sorts. I have decided to try my hand at creating my own Lego IDEAS based off their popular BrickHeadz product line. I love these quirky block shaped characters and knew the ever iconic Garden Gnome would lend themselves perfectly to being re-created in this brick format.

I have been busy the past week baking up a storm this week to have items to donate to the school bakesale, as well as cookies to gift to neighbours and treats for us to enjoy at home over the Christmas Holidays.
I was not going to do neighbour gifts last year. I had decided to try and simplify my gift giving and spend less, but then gifts of chocolate and baking all started slowly showing up at our door. Naturally my husband asked what we were giving, so I had to scramble to come up with an easy and affordable last minute gift. Continue reading “Chocolate Candy Cane Pretzels”
Today I have a bit of a holiday mash-up with my DIY Christmas Lights Advent Calendar made from plastic Easter eggs! With only a few extra craft supplies, you’ll be able to create this fun countdown for the holiday season.
My kids are OBSESSED with their fuzzy blankets, and drag them everywhere throughout the house. Because of this, I knew cozy blankets would be essential to pack both for the airplane and for a little extra comfort in the hotel room during our upcoming trip
Blankets and pillows can take up quite a bit of valuable suitcase or carry-on space so while trying to narrow down which of the kids blankets to bring, it occurred to me that I already had a great combo travel pillow and blanket in the plush, fuzzy fabric my kids love.
Teacher’s gifts are always a bit of a challenge. You want something nice to express your gratitude, but you also want to know it is something that is going to get used and enjoyed. Continue reading “Kit Kat Teacher’s Gift”
This week we visited the Lego Store and I am excited to share that we came out with a fun free mini build and brand new Lego Batman Movie set that cost us next to nothing. Thanks to the Lego VIP program and monthly in-store events, there are two easy ways to get your hands on some FREE Lego at the Lego Store.
Somewhere between having 2 kids and becoming a stay at home mom, I became a coffee drinker. I managed to make it through 4 years of university without touching a cup of coffee, but the sleepless nights with newborns and long days with toddlers quickly turned it into my preferred form of caffeine.
We were recently scent (teehee) these adorable Whiffer Sniffers toys for review and when our box of goodies arrived, my kids and I couldn’t wait to get into the round plastic packages.
On Wednesday I did something I said I wasn’t going to do as a parent; I let my son play hooky from school. I had a chance to meet a friend and decided it wouldn’t be the end of the world if I let my son skip one day of Kindergarten to come along and play a round of minigolf with his sister and my friend’s son. Hopefully this doesn’t bite me in the butt later down the road!
Since we were already out and about, we also decided to meet up with my husband for lunch. We ended up with a bit of time to kill in between, so I decided to take a stroll through Chapters and finally check out the new American Girl section in the West Edmonton Mall store.
On our way out of the children’s section of the store, I happened upon this beautiful Finding Dory inspired book on the shelf of Staff Picks. I was immediately drawn to Three Little Words because of the soft watercolors and beautiful imagery, and once I read the message inside I knew it was one I wanted to add to our collection.
