Can you believe that December is already here?! Christmas is going to be here before we know it! Life just seems to be flying by lately so the other night the brakes were put on, press pause on life as it be, and a slowed-down quality family night came to be. Bring out the holiday catalogs, some stickers, papers, scissors, glue sticks and a few cups of hot cocoa and we had ourselves a family Christmas List evening…

DIY Cake & Sweets Stand

I always wanted one of those cute little cake stands for on my kitchen to hold sweets, deserts and other treats (or even those breakfast treats!) like you see in all those fancy kitchens featured in the home magazine, but I have never been able to find one that (a) I loved or (b) I loved enough for the price! So when I was looking for a project to do this past week, I thought this would be the perfect one and off Miss L and I went on the hunt for supplies…

First stop was the dollar store, where we found some cute platters and a few candle stick holders. With the warm spring weather garage sales have been popping up everywhere, so we hunted through a few around our neighbourhood and found a few more trays and candle sticks. All of that, along with a few more pieces we found in the “dreaded unpacked boxes” at home (yes we have been here about a year now, and sadly yes we still have a few boxes not yet unpacked which have been on the to-do list for far to long), a few cans of spray paint and paint we had left over from other projects, the glue gun and we were ready to go!

DIY Mason Jar Herb Garden

Spring is here, so what better time than now to set up our little herb garden I have been talking about doing for way to long! I just wanted something simple, easy, some-what compact, yet still “cute” looking too, and easily movable to float around the kitchen, whether it be on the island, hutch, or anywhere between.

So Miss L and I set out on the hunt for just the right thing, and five stores later we were still empty-handed… So giving up a little, I figured I’ll just grab some mason jars, throw some soil in it, plant the seeds and call it a herb garden. One last quick look through Canadian tire, heading straight to the mason jars to grab a pack, we came across  this neat canning rack (which I’m sure is nothing new to many) and thus leading us here… our DIY mason jar herb garden!

It really has to be about the simplest DIY out there… we grabbed the Continue reading “DIY Mason Jar Herb Garden”

{DIY} Baby HULK Costume

Here find my attempt at a DIY Infant HULK Costume, and it looked pretty damn cute (or at least I thought so!)….

Materials:

  • Green long-sleeved onesie (shirt would suffice as well)
  • Green pants/leggings
  • Purple pants/leggings
  • White T-Shirt (optional – I have seen many do without the shirt and just have the green upper body <- that was our back-up plan)

The Art of Wrapping… With Kids!

We tried something new this year with our presents, and personally I think it was my best idea yet….. and Miss L was happy to get to add her touch!

Our Four Steps to Christmas Present Wrapping:
1. Mom Wraps Gifts 
   (in brown paper)
2. Miss L Stamps with Christmas Stamps
   (while mom is wrapping the next one)
3. Pick Out Bow / Label and Apply
4. Repeat Steps 1 to 3!

Miss L is kept busy with stamping while I can keep busy wrapping and not worry about little fingers wanting to handle the tape and scissors!

Merry Christmas!
