[not quite dead yet]

My poor blog! I should probably quit blogging all together as this blog doesn't make any sense anymore and my motivation to keep it is non existent. But, for some reason here I am again sharing a bit of this & that.

These dinosaur cupcake toppers were fun to make. Printed some dinosaur photos, added little party hats, glued it on scrapbook paper, inserted toothpicks.

My poor attempt at nature art while our daughter was playing with friends after school. 

My favorite season! Love the colors out there. I so wish fall would last longer! Yesterday was +23C and sunny! Love how little it rains here in Alberta in the fall (most rain comes with summer thunderstorms). I'm sure we'll get snow soon so gotta enjoy these gorgeous fall days.

Haven't cross-stitched for ages so this little project was fun to make. You can find the link to this printable in my Christmas Pinterest file.

Diddo for this one. The pattern is in my Halloween Pinterest file. 

I think Pinterest is one of the reasons why I don't blog anymore. You can find everything there so why blog?

I absolutely, totally, completely LOVE this song!
So good to have David Archuleta back and singing for ME again. :)

In case you're wondering, this is not a religious song. Just a beautiful song with an amazing message to each and every one of us.

[need something good to read?]


Intriguing. Captivating. Touching. A great love story!

Loved it!


Sweden's own Forrest Gump. Such an amusing story! Horrible swearing throughout the book though! I struggled to give four stars to a book with so much swearing but the story made me chuckle so much that I had to. One day when I reread this book, it will be a more enjoyable read then because I crossed off all the swear words.

Do you need something good to watch too?


Loved this cute movie filmed in a tiny Canadian Maritime harbor.

[Halloween on my mind]

Halloween always sneaks up on me. One moment I think I have lots of time to figure out our daughter's costume etc. Next thing I know it's the day before and I'm scrambling to get things done. While Halloween is my least favorite holiday due to all the scary evil stuff, I still enjoy a much milder version of this holiday. Pumpkins, cute costumes, fall decor... 
Here are some ideas which I have collected on my Pinterest Halloween page.

Lace Tray by Urban Outfitters.

Halloween print by Lily and Val/Etsy.

Decoupaged leaves pumpkins by Country Living magazine.

Hanging bats by Martha Stewart.

[Gotta love Kid Snippets!]

I can't believe it's back to school time already. Summer went way too fast! Noticing some yellow in the trees and mornings are quite nippy. I do love fall though, my favorite season. But like summer - it just doesn't last long enough. Winter is a real time hog where we live.

Have you seen these school related Kid Snippets videos yet? These guys are the best!

[future worth living for]

I had to make many baby cards recently and thought I'd share them with you. 
I just printed the image on the right side of a landscape oriented Microsoft Word document, then cut it and folded it. To make the thought circle, I made two 3.5" columns in a Microsoft Word document, inserted the image (six per page), and then cut them with a 3" circle cutter. I attached mine with a foam square. Super simple. Like I said, I had to make many cards.

You can also use these images in your scrapbooking. Perfect for Project Life albums.

[free printables]

My apologies for totally neglecting my blog for so long. What can I say? Life is just keeping me busy, busy, busy. Here are couple of Project Life freebies to make up for the blogging silence.
