It was this time last year that Moana was released on home video, so my oldest decided she wanted to feature the flick during her squad sleepover to celebrate her 9th birthday. The movie’s Polynesian influence was the perfect inspiration for an island inspired fete so I used this as my jumping off point for […]
We’ve had our first snowfall of the season and as they say… it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. The first parade of the season was this past weekend, the local radio station has switched to holiday tunes and neighbours houses are starting to light up the night. I managed to get my winter planters arranged […]
For Q’s animal themed birthday party I decided I wanted to try out this trend of painted plastic animals. I’ve seen them used in various applications such as here and here and was inspired.

From foot soaks, to manicures and pedicures, to the perfect finishing touches, the girls ate up every little detail […]
My oldest turned six this month and chose to celebrate with a “Frozen” themed party with her friends. I have to admit I am a sucker for party planning. I get caught up in the tiniest of details and always bite off far more than can be realistically accomplished by any one person.
