Spring is here, Easter is around the corner and Penny’s kindergarten class is throwing another class party to celebrate this special time of year. This month I am feeling short on time so I put together the most simple class gift I could think of. Bubbles!
Every June my mother in law, Penny and myself head out to a local strawberry patch and spend an hour filling a few baskets of strawberries. After we collect our share and Penny is full from sitting in the rows and eating as many berries as she can stomach, we race home to hull and freeze bag after bag ensure we have plenty of local berries to make home made jam!
Easter is next month and even though winter is making an attempt at an extended stay, I am busy getting ready for warm weather and spring festivities.
I wanted to make a colourful, fun and inexpensive easter wreath to get the kids in the springtime spirit. I decided on a bright and fluffy tulle wreath adorned with colourful easter eggs.
Throughout the month of March I have been participating in the $100 Room Challenge, a home decorating and DIY challenge put together by Erin at Lemons Lavender and Laundry. One room gets made over with $100 dollars in one month. This was really a great challenge to take a long look at what you have, what you can do on your own and what you need to put together a functional and beautiful space that wont break the bank. Another wonderful bonus, I had a deadline! I had committed so there was no more putting things off for later. I loved being on a strict timeline because things actually got done!
I think Easter is my favourite holiday after Christmas. I love the excitement of warmer weather, summery food, warm sun and shedding off our coats and layers of winter. I love the season of renewal. Easter is a holiday I don’t have enough decorations for (I think Mike would disagree), so I am crafting a few cheery and fun Easter items, starting with this felt bunny garland.
When I was a kid, I thought crepes and pancakes were the same thing. My grandma would make my brother and I stacks of these delicious and perfectly thin and tasty crepes with lots of butter and syrup before school. Some times she would roll them up with raisins and sweet cheese or homemade jam. We had no idea how good we had it!
If you are just tuning in let me get you up to speed. I am participating in the $100 Room Challenge which was created by Erin over at Lemons, Lavender and Laundry. It’s a really fun and creative challenge to make over 1 room in our homes with $100 dollars in 1 months time. Here is Week 1, Week 2 and Week 3. We will be revealing our rooms next Wednesday!
I have made no secret of my love for all things Disney. To be honest, as each year goes by, the obsession is only getting bigger. Fine by me! 5 months ago we took our family to Disney World since going for our honeymoon in 2011. It was such a dream come true to watch our kids faces as we pulled up to the grand gates of the Magic Kingdom. Is there anything better then taking a monorail ride and seeing this sight? [Read more…]
This was our third ski season with a child on the slopes, but if we were totally honest, this was the first winter we actually did real skiing with Penny. She learned her turns stopping, getting on and off the magic carpet by herself and even knows the ropes on the high speed chairlifts now.
Week 3 already?!
I feel like I am way behind but at the same time everything is coming together. If you are just tuning in I am participating in the $100 Room Challenge with group of great bloggers. Our goal is to makeover one room in our homes with a budget of $100. This is my Week 1 Before post where I introduced our ultra boring master bedroom. Here you can find the Week 2 Update where we applied wall decals from WallPops and used a whole roll of painter’s tape in the process.
