Party Time!

With it being such a gloomy day today, I thought I would reach back in my vault of crafts a little bit and share with ya’ll how to make a fabulous Birthday Number out of paint chips!

This was a task I had taken on for my nieces 2nd birthday back in October, telling my sister in law I wanted to make a special number for her cake and goodie table. The theme was Bubble Guppies so I went with nice hues of blue for the ocean effect…I think it turned out GREAT! And do you want to know the best part? You only need to buy one thing…yup ONE! Take a look at the page and get started on your very own number (or word, or design…) for your next event!

Everybody needs a little more creativity in their lives ❤ Enjoy!

Christmas Lantern

One month left until Christmas! I decided this past weekend that I was going to start to decorate (which is actually early for me!) as we have a Christmas party coming up and I really didn’t know when else I would have the time to get the house together!

While going through my decorations I came across some of the mesh tule that is so frequently used in wreaths at this time of year, as well as outdoor decor and knew right away I wanted to use it. Mine was a nice purple, left over from a couple of years ago when I did a Grinch themed tree and needed to make a fun tree skirt! (You can find it in any colour you can imagine).

I decided to do a simple lantern with the mesh and some lights (all things I had already), click the link below for the tutorial to make one for your own home!! Christmas Lantern Tutorial.

Afterall, everyone needs a little more creativity in their lives ❤

Fall is here!

I don’t know about you guys, but Fall is my FAVOURITE time of year! There is nothing better to me than the cool, crisp air and the changing colours on trees everywhere! With Fall comes a few of my favourite things…there’s our annual trip to the apple orchard (happening this weekend), which results in me spending an entire afternoon making pies for the upcoming holidays (and this years addition: APPLE FRITTERS). There is also the wonderful holiday known as Thanksgiving (my all time fave as it includes all my favourite foods with the combination of the perfect weather and days spent with family and friends). This year will also include an Oktoberfest party thrown by my husbands sister and her hubby, where I just know my ultra creative husband will think up some fun dishes to share with ya’ll!

Fall is also a time I like to get my home ready for the holidays, instead of “Spring Cleaning” we do a larger Fall clean! We also like to go on random drives to places like Collingwood or Port Perry to take in their little towns and shops…and of course bakeries! Perhaps one of my favourite things about Fall is the decor! There is nothing more exciting to me than going to buy my mums and gourds for my front porch (and pumpkins once mid-October hits). It also gives me the chance to get back into my “comfort food” meals which stick to the ribs and just make me smile.

Stay tuned friends for the next few weeks of Fall fun on the blog! I will be posting everything from the orchard and fritters to some of my favourite ideas for fun Fall decor!

If you have any suggestions on what you’d like to see please let me know! I am always willing to try something new and inspiring ❤
