Hideaway Place Space

The girls discovered a perfect hideaway spot in our rental in Toronto where they can sit and read, draw or journal all while feeling hidden away in their own special girl cave. I figured as long as they were truly enjoying it and using it often I’d spruce it up for them and make it a bit cozier and a little prettier. It was a super simple and inexpensive project that made me a hero for a day. If you have a little nook type space that goes virtually unused in your own home I encourage you to turn it into a hideaway for your little ones and be their hero…if only for an afternoon!Continue Reading

Adalaide outside the spooky entryway
So I may have mentioned this already but my time has been spread pretty thin these days. Although I have wishes and dreams and desires to do all the creative things that inspire me and get my juices flowing it’s just not possible unless I’m willing to risk a total mental breakdown!

There was no way I was going to be able to pull off such ambitious endeavors ¬†while doing everything else on my “Get it the Hell Done” list. So, I scaled back my over achieving expectations and decided to bring it down a notch. I realized I could still bring in a touch of that spooky Halloween spirit but in a smaller, more manageable, just as fun way. OK maybe not just as fun as turning my place into a haunted house, but fun enough!Continue Reading

Delivery Day Essentials!

As my delivery day approached I started obsessing over what to bring with me for my two day hospital stay. I have never ever had to be hospitalized (thank heavens) and really had no idea what to expect. I’ve never been a big fan of hospitals, who is really, and the thought of being stuck in one of those tiny, hard beds in a tiny, airless room was completely stressing me out. My obsession with what to pack was my way of calming my nerves and controlling the only things I could control. Making sure I had everything I’d need to be as comfortable as possible.Continue Reading
