Why You Need a Brother! #brotherinnovis #sewingfun #brothercanada #thesearethedays

I promise you I’m not just saying it, but you really need a Brother. Seriously. And my lovely cousin, Laura would agree. Earlier this year, while watching her two younger kids, I made her daughter a couple of skirts using this adorable Girl’s Maxi Skirt Pattern from Girl Charlee. They quickly became favourites and was shared between two of her girls (yay for knit fabric that can stretch – also from GirlCharlee). So she planned a fun little trip with her two older…

I Dream Of Faraway Places #madetoholiday #thesearethedays #makingmemories

I don’t spend hours on Pinterest like I did in the beginning. Part of that is I have gotten busier and therefore made less time for it, and part of it is shifting my focus from PINNING, to DOING. My pinterest is filled with Cute Kids Stuff, Food I Love, Inspiration, Things That Make Me Laugh, and more…so much more. I love looking through each album to get new ideas or remember something that has helped me….but the one that…

Don’t Let Summer Vacation Terrorize You! #familyvacationtips #thesearethedays

Don’t Let Summer Vacation Terrorize You: Tips for a Fun Family Vacation and Taking it in Stride We’ve all seen them before. They wander with their dead eyes, disheveled clothes and frazzled hair, through airports, or are seen tumbling out of cars trailed by crumbs and empty juice cartons. They are zombie moms; moms who are trying to navigate summer vacation but have become disoriented by all the hassle. But summer vacation doesn’t have to be a source of stress.…

Companies That Give Back #yycflood #companiesgiveback #payitforward

Well if  you follow my facebook page {and Canadian news} you are probably well aware of the devastating floods in Southern Alberta. Calgary, where I was born and raised was hit the worst, with Medicine Hat {lived for first 5 years of my life and visited regularly as a kid} and Edmonton being hit as well. Calgary and the surrounding areas {High River for example} are experiencing mass amounts of destruction and thousands of people are kicking it into high…

Dreamweaver XE – Part I #brothercanada #lettheangelssing

It’s been a while now since this beautiful machine made a temporary home with us. And while my kitchen is cleaner as a result of it not being the table centerpiece – I’m still very very bummed. So are my unfinished {and un-started} sewing projects. It’s take me so long to write this post for one major reason – I didn’t know where to start. I mean, what to mention first, what will you find valuable, etc. So I made…

A{nother} Julep Review Part II #julep

  Ready for my thoughts on the last two Julep boxes I received?  {Read about November and February Maven Boxes Here} The American Beauty Maven Profile was changed to Modern Beauty for the March boxes. It was precisely for this reason that I chose not to skip the March box. I was not a huge fan of the multiple polishes each month {can get excessive quickly} and was THRILLED they were going to be changing it up with more full…

A{nother} Julep Review Part I #julep

I’ve already done a Julep review once before, but seeing as I still haven’t cancelled my subscription and managed not to skip some months in time – I had 4 beautiful boxes waiting for me at the condo. Yay to my sister in law for bringing them back for me {she went at a different time}. Wanna know what I got and what I think? Well, okay… First things first – Julep made some changes to the American Beauty maven…
