We are halfway through March & Spring fever is starting to set in in our household! I am so ready to say goodbye to all the snow. I do enjoy winter for the most part, but holy man, does it ever draaaaaag ooooooon. With Easter right around the corner, we are slowly starting to pull out some decor and put our Easter clings on the windows.

Make Your Own Fluid Art Magnets

Learn how to make your own fluid art magnets

Hey friends! Popping in today to share a quick craft with you! A few weeks back, I tried my hand at 'Fluid Art'. If you haven't already heard of it, fluid art is the art of acrylic paint pouring.

Schedules get juggled, meals are constantly being eaten on the way to one rink or another, & I constantly wonder whether I'm in the midst of losing my mind, or whether I've already lost it! Our home is filled with rather heated debates at times over which NHL is the most superior (Canadians for Carter, every other team for Tucker). We even try to increase the excitement by placing little wage[...]

DIY Gold Scalloped Christmas Ornaments

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... the trees are up (yes trees, yay!), the lights are sparkling and everything feels so cozy. All the decorating has me wanting to create and craft. ALL. THE. TIME. Is there such thing as too many decorations & ornaments? I think not. The W Network (which would be the equivalent to the Hallmark Channel) has been airing a steady stream of sappy, feel good movies and I am lapping it up. I don't care that they all end the same or generally have an unrealistic storyline, the leading men in each story is a gift from Sa[...]
