Pottery has been a craft medium I have been swooning over since Elise started making her own dishes. I talked about taking a pottery class for the first time so much that my sister even put it on my 27 x 28 list. Sarah and I were going to try and take a drop-in pottery class […]

Looking to implement a cash budget? Try making these adorable DIY reusable cash budget envelopes. A couple of years back I attended Financial Peace University at my church back home. It was a life-changing 10-week eye-opener to money. I’ve still struggled with budgets and money management since acquiring all that knowledge, but I’m determined to […]

Have you ever been to a Paint Nite?! Let me tell you – they’re such a unique, fun, and crafty night out! I had heard about them before but never had the opportunity to attend one. Until my friend Chelsey invited me to one tonight! It was hosted at the Cheesecake Cafe, which is an […]

This DIY closet organizer comes in at under $200. I mean, seriously, have you ever looked at the cost of a closet organizer? My goodness! They can get quite pricey. And though I am quite fond of building out awesome organizers on the IKEA online PAX builder, I’m just not quite ready to dish out […]

This year halloween was a total bust, but we did make super cute DIY Halloween treat bags to try and save the holiday. I’ll be honest though, I didn’t dress up. We didn’t even carve pumpkins. I asked, but my sister said no. Apparently they were rotting already. Unfortunate. These super adorable little candy bags […]

how to keep in touch with friends: a traveling notebook

These eco-friendly reusable cotton makeup remover pads are a great alternative to disposable ones. My sister decided to go the cloth diaper route with Baby A. Since that decision, we’ve been trying to see how many things we can find a cloth alternate for. We’ve made the diapers, the diaper liners, the diaper inserts, baby […]

eco-friendly reusable cotton makeup remover pads – DIY Free Crochet Pattern

This weekend I trekked to Banff with my family. It’s about 4 hours away from Edmonton, so a pretty good chunk of time in the car…. perfect opportunity to make another one of these cute little bunnies. Crocheting in the car made the road trip go by so much faster. Thankfully, I don’t typically get […]

road trip hack: bring a crochet hook!

A cream coloured crocheted bunny with purple ears, with a yellow S on the left ear, and a crocheted yellow flower on its head.

I am far from good at sewing. My mom once made my sister’s grade eight graduation dress. I stood in awe at the fact she was capable of making something so awesome. I tried to use her ancient singer for years. It hated me. Never once did it co-operate. A few weeks ago, I attempted […]
