Yep, Still Sewing #makingmemories #brothercanada

I am nearing end of the loan period for the Dreamweaver XE that was sent to me by Brother Canada. And honestly, I DON’T WANNA GIVE IT BACK!  **Stomps Foot** And also, my friends and I are sewing the crap out of it – and loving every minute. We have already made embroidered shirts, 3 dresses, 1 skirt1 appliqued shirt, bound a quilt, and are currently in the middle of quilting another small quilt. PLUS – There are about 3…

This One’s For The Boys! #makingmemories #disney #brothercanada

One thing I know from my accessory making days, is that boy items are LIMITED. There just isn’t that much out there for the little guys, so it’s especially fun to be able to make something *boyish*. Jonah’s been begging me for a shirt to match the pyjama bottoms I made him for Christmas, and this was the perfect opportunity. He is THRILLED! And he felt the need to present his jammie bottoms in a yoga pose. lol And a…

Sewing Day 3 #brothercanada #disney #makingmemories

Well another sewing day is behind us. And another few projects are completed! Wanna see what we made? Here’s a rough version of the photos as I need to take better shots tomorrow, but nevertheless, here are the projects we did today: Just something small for Brooklyn since the remainder of my tshirt projects are for Jonah {oops}. I really love the simplicity of the sailboat and the fun of the contrasting colours. YAY – finally something for the boys.…

Brother DreamWeaver XE – Some Goodies #brothercanada #disney #makingmemories

If you are a follower on my Facebook page, you already know I have HUGE news! HA-UGE! Brother Canada contacted me a few weeks ago offering their new Dreamweaver XE {sewing, quilting, and embroidery machine} for review – I KNOW! – I nearly peed my pants too! I could not believe it and honestly squealed with delight for days. But also tried to reign in the excitement *just in case* it didn’t happen. And then the Purolator truck parked outside…

It’s The New Cool ~ Geekie

Gone are the days of this: Though let’s be honest – we all loved him! But seriously – this version of Geekie didn’t last long, nor was it *COOL*. We all loved Steve Urkel, but nobody really wanted to look like him {except maybe as Stefan? Oh come on, you were smitten}. Well, there’s a new Geekie in town and everyone’s gonna want it! I know I do – and my kids, LOVE their new shirts. In fact, Jonah giggles…

I Remember What It Was…. #Julep

In the car the other day I noticed my lips were looking a little lack-lustre, so I reached for my lip gloss and that’s where it happened. My A-ha moment {Oprah style}! Remember how I couldn’t remember which product came in one of my Julep boxes? Well I totally know now….it was the lip gloss that I keep in my car! {which is why I couldn’t remember….I couldn’t find it lol and forgot I kept it in the vehicle}. Similar…

Cure Those Chapped Lips!

A few weeks ago I went through a wee spell of *chapped lips*. Not fun at all. It wasn’t actually from not using a lip balm but actually as a result of using one of my favorites {why do the flavour ones always wreak such havoc?}. Wanting to put my Burt’s Bees to the test, I decided to use it exclusively to try and remedy the problem. I wasn’t hopeful. I remember as a teenager trying it out {I used…

Julep {Which Beauty Maven Are You?}

I only mentioned doing a Julep review over a month ago, and now I am FINALLY getting around to it. December was filled with some pretty major projects, so {as I’m sure you are well aware} the blog took a back seat. But now I’m back and ready to pass along a few awesome reviews. Namely, Julep. I originally signed up for Julep shortly before our Whitefish trip last Easter, and couldn’t wait to check it out. Honestly, I didn’t…

The Truck #notaford #needaford

On the days that I work, Brent and I switch vehicles so that he can take the kids to and from school. Yesterday was one such day, and let me tell you. It was the last. Here’s the story: This 1990 beauty was my father in law’s, and when he passed away 3 1/2 years ago, Brent snagged it. Honestly, it’s been a real blessing and even though it’s old and has issues, with Brent’s job just a few minutes…
