I like to make things.
I’m always trying something.
Below are a few things that I have made this year. I’m happy to share them with you…
Sign up and take Making Keepsakes for Kids: A Free 5 Day Email Course.
Making Keepsakes for Kids is a heartwarming course that will share five creative ideas for making thoughtful keepsakes for the kids in your life. The ideas come from special gifts my parents have made for me over the years (along with some of my own personal favourites). Each day you’ll be inspired to capture stories and share them with those you love.
A Calendar to Inspire your Next Project.
Thank a Mail Carrier Day. Carrot Cake Day. World Storytelling Day. Handmade Day. Lost Sock Memorial Day. Yarn Bombing Day. Compliment your Mirror Day….
A creative calendar filled with recognized international, world, and national holidays. A must have resource for makers, bloggers, creative entrepreneurs, and good people. Your head will be filled with creative ideas for your next blog post, project, or thoughtful act of kindness.

And apparently I’m on a calendar kick, because I also have this if you’d like:
I learned to sew aprons as a personal fundraiser for the Heart & Stroke Foundation in memory of my Gram. With Live. Love. Bake! those who bought aprons were also invited to participate in an online recipe swap – sharing favourite family recipes.
A paper collage.
I took a writing class where I was asked:
if writing were an animal, what would it be to you?
A DIY hack to keep mittens on our kids hands (adding socks to mittens). It totally worked!
A mixed media collage on canvas with my word for 2018: Calm.
I discovered simmering pots in December and LOVED them. You need to try it.
Charlie gets lots of hand-me-downs from her brothers. I wanted her to have a little something of her own. I learned how to sew pom poms to add onto her toque.
I like to make stuff. I try to sew without patterns and make homemade gifts.
