It’s My Birthday!


I am 37 years old this year. I wish I could stay 36 forever. This year I accomplished a lot. It was a good year. Plus, I love the sound of that age- the perfect sweet spot between ‘too-young-to-know-better’ and ‘too-old-to-care’. However, time stops for no one. Onward!   This year I have made myself proud. I have crushed my…

That’s It. I’m Throwing it On the Lawn and Setting It On Fire!


I really feel like I could do that. I do. But I won’t. We still have quite a lot of stuff. In Marie Kondo’s book, she stresses that you should not declutter your family’s things, just yours. Kondo says that even a three-year-old child will get the decluttering bug if you’re setting a good example and they see how happy…

5 Fave (Canadian) Netflix Documentaries


I have been doing a lot of crafting for my Etsy shop…..and so while I write up patterns and plan or crochet, I watch Netflix in the background. Not a documentary, but I was watching “Demetri Martin: Live* (*at the time)” and in his comedy special he goes, (I’m trying to remember the exact wording), something like, “Crafts, cuz you…

I Am Very Busy….


I forgot how fun crafting is!! All of those little steps that most people find SO tedious, I find calming and spark my creativity. Cutting carefully around tiny inside corners is my happy place. I understand it isn’t for everyone but I love it. So today I was very busy…. Today, so much is done by computers and at desks.…

Sometimes all you need to lift your mood is some pretty soap and a hot shower.

Alchemy Soap Co. Lotion & Bath Salts & Room Spray, Oh My!


I received a wonderful gift full of love and wonderful smelling products the other day! Alicia of Alchemy Soap Co. had sent me a present. I was so shocked to get it in the mail. I opened it to find a glittering box of gold and blue. The smell was intoxicating. Coincidentally, it came on Valentine’s Day and I could…

An Etsy Shop of My Own!

After years of people encouraging me (I think since Hunter was born), I have finally opened an Etsy shop. You can find it at this link: (CLICK HERE) I know a lot of people…

Easiest, No Fail, No Mess Chocolate Chip Cookies


It’s snowing here, and I have a cold, so naturally I am craving a treat. Since becoming gluten-free, indulgent baked goods are a little harder to make, especially if you are craving something from your childhood like a fluffy cake, chewy cookies or perfect pie. You want it to taste exactly the same! Thankfully, gluten-free flours have come a long…

Struggles Last Week & Life Loves


Last week was sooooo long. I did a lot of crying. My workout seemed harder than usual and the kids were cranky about school (“It’s booorrrinnnnggggg!”) and the days seemed so short. I cried a lot over our dumb cats….our “fur-beasts”, as I like to call them…. because they are still not being great. No medical reason has presented itself…
