Raincoast – Don’t Get Caught!

My husband and I both enjoy young adult books. There’s something fun about reading books that are focussed more on kids and what kids do! My latest read is no exception! It’s called “Don’t Get Caught”, is the first book that Kurt Dinan has written, and reminds me a lot of the many great books […]

Zoku Quick Pop Maker!

What kid doesn’t love popsicles? There’s just so much fun involved in eating something that melts before you’re done, something that comes in so many flavors, something that can drip down your arm, something that *must* be eaten when it’s 30 above out, and something that says Summer Holidays! What’s not to like about popsicles!? […]

Raincoast – Three Travel books to “Blow Your Mind” ~Giveaway!

If I had my way, I’d spend a good portion of the year travelling. There are so many places I’d love to go! Even when it comes to camping, we’ve gone to a different campground every year for the past 5 years! I mean, why go to the same one every year when there are […]

Giddy Yo! ~Discount!

I’ve never been a chocolate fanatic – mainly because I simply didn’t enjoy the cheap chocolates that are fanned out across our grocery store checkouts! My theory always has been, if you’re giving me chocolate, give me *GOOD* chocolate! Well, I’m afraid I’ve been eating a bit more chocolate lately because I’ve discovered that I […]

I love finding companies that are home-grown and are successfully creating things right here on our Canadian soil! It proves that we CAN do it! We don’t have to export all our raw goods only to import the finished goods back! This time, it’s a company who’s creating clothes – and it seems to me […]

“Mom & Me: An Art Journal to Share”

Sometimes as a busy mom I find that I don’t make the time to sit and play or create with my kids.  There are always clothes to fold, dishes to wash and meals to prepare.  I often have to remind myself that the kids really do bask in the attention and would prefer a mom […]

Live Clean – Sun Care! ~Giveaway!

We’ve had some hot days here in Saskatchewan lately! I’ve even been silly enough to get a fairly bad burn once! Generally, I’m pretty careful because I know I tend to burn rather than tan, but we were out working in the yard and I forgot about sunscreen until it was too late! Oops! My […]

Raincoast – Cut Flower Garden!

I’ve always loved flowers. Everything from the colourful petunia, to the lovely peony, to the exotic colombine. We took produce to a farmers’ market for a couple years and one thing I would loved to have taken was bouquets of flowers grown on my farm. However, we were having kids at that point and life […]

Daniel Martin Moore “Turned Over To Dreams”

In our house there is usually some sort of music playing.  It may be the playlist on my iphone, the radio in the play room or one of my children composing at the piano.  At bedtime we all enjoy drifting off to slumber listening to some dreamy tunes. We have found a new album to […]
