There was a time in the not-so-distant past when I would re decorate my mantel every season. I love when our home reflects the different seasons and holidays throughout the year. But, over the past year, it became a little overwhelming to keep up with that pace. I started to like the idea of decorating a mantel that lasts all… Read More
Earlier this week, I decorated a Disney Frozen Christmas tree as a fundraiser in my kids’ school, inspired by the movie. For the past 4 years, I’ve decorated a tree that is put up on tickets at the school’s annual bake sale. The lucky winner has the tree delivered to them fully decorated in mid-December, and the funds raised go… Read More
Hello, lovelies. Today, I’m happy to be participating once again in a Christmas Home Tour with a group of talented and creative Canadian bloggers who I admire so much! One of the things I love so much about holiday home tours is all the inspiration you can get. If you haven’t started your Christmas decorating yet, you’ll get all kinds… Read More
Hello friends! How have you been? It’s been a little while since I’ve posted, but I’ve been a busy little beaver decorating for Christmas around here. Yup, I’m one of those people who decorates for Christmas in November. Sorry if you are still doing Fall and pumpkins and all that jazz.

Over the past week, I’ve been in my Christmas decorating ‘Happy Place’. Yep, it’s the time of year when our home has the distinct scent of a hot glue gun and a Balsam & Cedar candle mixed with Starbucks holiday blend. And, if you need me, you can usually find me sitting on the floor, happily sifting through bins of baubles,… Read More
Happy November, you guys! And you know what that means, right? I’ve got Christmas on my mind! Canadian Tire has always been one of my favourite places to buy Christmas decor. If you’re Canadian, Canadian Tire needs no explanation. It’s about as Canadian as it gets. If you’re not Canadian, then you might be fooled by the name. Don’t be! Canadian… Read More
Welcome to my first blog post of 2014!
I normally post a couple of times a week, so it’s odd for me to go so long without being here. So far, January has been taken up with all kinds of not-so-fun non-blogging activities: Christmas de-decorating, toy organization, winter storms and power outages (ughhh), and an extended Christmas holiday for our kids (due to the storms and outages).
