Celebrating, just because…


…it’s that kind of day.

Hope you are having a fantabulous day too!

Happy Easter!


It is a weekend of miracles! For my Christian friends, “Jesus is risen!” For my Muslim Friends, “The Beloved Prophet Isa (pbuh) has been lifted!” For my Pagan friends, may your spring be fertile and blessed with new beginnings. However you celebrate, may your day be full of love and light!

Easter Peeps cupcakes


Easter is tomorrow and if you’re still looking for a quick table centerpiece for your Easter dinner, I have another edible centerpiece that is quick and easy to put together.  Baby chick cupcakes!

All you need are some cupcakes, Easter Peeps, edible nest and some chocolate eggs.

Make as many Easter chick cupcakes as you need for your guests, then find suitable trays or platters for serving. I used these white platters I found at a local dollar store, filled them with bright coloured gum balls and placed my cupcakes on top for a colourful table display.

Add some flower sugar cookies and you have a pretty (edible!) flower garden for your nesting baby chicks. Pretty, simple and edible, perfect for an Easter centerpiece!

Are you ready for Easter?

A simple Easter centerpiece


With Easter only days away, the time for crafting is quickly coming to an end. Still stuck for a table centerpiece for your Easter brunch or dinner? Incorporate some of your Easter treats for a quick, easy and edible table centerpiece!

You can easily make a chocolate bunny table runner for your brunch by setting up your chocolate bunny and leaving a trail of chocolate eggs, gum balls, cookies and other sweet treats behind him down the entire length of the table.

Add pops of colour by placing strawberry and vanilla wafer cookies (easily found at most grocery stores) on a cake stand on either side of the bunny treat trail.

Add an Easter- themed cupcake at each place setting for guest to munch on after the meal.

If your table will be brimming with food, leaving no room for a centerpiece or runner, you could leave a chocolate bunny surrounded by sweets at each place setting to greet your guests as they sit down. It will also give them something small to snack on while the meal is being served. Who doesn’t love a little chocolate egg with brunch at Easter?

Keep the original boxes stashed somewhere to box up the treats for your guests to bring home, or use some paper treat bags in pretty Easter pastels and a little Easter grass.

An edible runner is a great way to incorporate the Easter treats you have put together for your guests while decorating your table for your family meal. It also means less clean up and storage of holiday items.

How are you decorating your family table this weekend?

Egg Heads


This makes me want to run out for egg cups.

Celebrating | Happy Birthday Box of Gumballs


My nephew celebrated his birthday recently. We gifted him a box of gumballs with a little something-something tucked inside.

He was delighted.

Etsy Treasuries


I had the delightful surprise of discovering two of my new Valentine’s Day printables have been featured in Etsy Treasuries over the past couple of days! How awesomesauce! Of course, I grabbed screenshots, as I always do. There is some great stuff in these treasuries, you should check them out!

For those of you local to Kitchener-Waterloo (yaay K-towners!).

Happy New Year!


 The kidlets are back to school and I’m ready to rev up 2012. So I’m celebrating the New Year with a Facebook Fans sale! You’ll have to head to my Facebook page for the deets crafty friends!

Wishing you a wonderful and Happy New Year!



My family is off to the supermarket with a shopping list for tonight’s festivities. A small family affair. Lobster, fondue, many rounds of Just Dance 3 are on the menu. Maybe some tossing of confetti (that’s what’s in that bag in the photo) and a toast of champagne (virgin pink raspberry champagne for my girls, of course) and a banging on pots and pans to ring in the new year!

Then there is aways the quiet reflection of all the happened in this year of 2011 and setting of intentions for 2012. It shall be a glorious evening, both bittersweet and renewing, as I think the eve of the new year always is.

As you reflect on the year past and set your intention for the new year, may it be full of love and light and may you be surrounded by those you love and who love you.

See you in 2012! Woot!

Merry Christmas To You!


I will be enjoying time with my family this weekend. Moments filled with love and wonder, hot chocolate and shortbread, and the excited anticipation of Santa’s arrival. I simply can’t wait! Wishing you and yours a joyful and merry Yuletide season!
