This week I have been busy sorting, pitching and rehoming ALL of the junk in the closet space and I am still not done! I will say this has been a much bigger task than I had originally thought. It’s a lot of “stuff” to sort through and luckily I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. My next step will be putting things back together. If you are just tuning in you can catch up on Week 1 HERE.
Over the Christmas holidays we took our oldest to see Disney on Ice – Reach for the Stars. The show was lots of fun and truly magical just like you would expect from a Disney production. With a little planning you can make your show even more magical. Use the following 5 tips for maximum magic at your next Disney on Ice show!
Hello and Happy 2018! I hope you had a lovely time with your family and friends over the holidays. I am so looking forward to really getting back to blogging (Including a blog name change coming soon!), and getting lots of home projects knocked off my list this year. Speaking of home projects…
I am back at the $100 Room Challenge this month along with a bunch of other great bloggers to transform one room, in one month for $100 dollars. Erin at Lemons, Lavender and Laundry created this challenge and I am so glad to be participating once again.
This year our gift to my parents was a day out to see Disney on Ice – Reach for the Stars. We are in the phase of “stuff”. Toys take up every inch of our house and we thought it would be fun to not give stuff, but to give time. So my daughter and I took my parents, also huge Disney fans, to the show at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, a couple days after Christmas and it was in a word, FANTASTIC!
Tis the season for teachers gifts and I have a quick last minute gift idea for the teachers, daycare providers, carpool parents and bus drivers in your little ones lives. Because I know how tiring 2 kids are, a cute Christmas mug and coffee cards seems like the least I could do!
A last week I shared our Traditional Christmas Mantel. Today I am going to share how to put the fresh greenery together to make a holiday arrangement/garland base for my other Christmas mantel decor. Not only does it look so pretty and classic, but it’s really simple to pull together.
Like most families we spent most of our days in the living/family room hanging out, reading, watching movies and playing. It also feels like the centre of our home because of our cozy fireplace. The fireplace mantel is always my starting point for any type of holiday decor. Once I have it all put together, everything else seems to fall into place.
Tis the season for dressing up your home for the holidays with all the trimming and trappings of the season. When I am decorating for Christmas and I don’t feel like things are coming together because I don’t have enough ornaments or because my garland is getting thin and sparse, I like to make a bunch of easy bows to cover the problem spots with pretty holiday ribbon!
Do you have your Christmas decorating down to a science? Do you keep the same theme or style from year to year or do you like to change it up each year? Me… I like to keep things the same. Reds, golds and the green of the tree.
This year I have been trying my hand at decorating with fresh greenery and I am sharing how I made some very simple hanging swags for the garage lights outside our garage. The process is really simple and only slightly sappy.
