Happy Valentine’s Day dilettantes! I hope you get lots of hugs and kisses sent your way today! I plan on buying myself a giant cupcake and watching a good movie tonight. And while flowers and gifts are lovely, I really just hope you all share lots of love with the special people around you.
One of my favourite parts of Christmas is breaking out the Christmas paper and stamp sets and spending hours in the crafting room with my snowman mug of tea working on different projects. The frames above are one of my best-loved projects, and decorating candles is great because it doesn’t take much time and yet it makes a big impact. Continue reading
Happy Turkey Day! Are you all too stuffed to move? Or so exhausted from cooking that looking at one more yam might just make you cry? Well congratulations, you’ve almost made it through the holiday weekend, but before you wrap things up don’t forget to remember what the season is all about…
Happy Wednesday everyone! I know that this was supposed to be up on Sunday, but I was face down in my books for the last four days. Now that I have some free time, however, I can connect with you all again. Better late than never right? I like to think so.
This past weekend my boyfriend and I celebrated the fourth year anniversary of our relationship. I would not have imagined that I would be holding hands with the same man- who happens to be my first boyfriend – since high school, but he has filled my life with so much happiness and love that I couldn’t imagine holding hands with anyone else. Sappy, I know. Continue reading
Hello fellow dilettantes! Surprised to see me? I know it’s been far too long since my last post, especially since I had just talked about re-working my timing to fit with my new work schedule. But I am back now and ready to cook, craft, read, create, and blog about it all!
So my supervisor just recently came back from a three-week paternal leave after his wife had a gorgeous little baby girl. There is also another woman in the office who is currently on maternal leave and brings in her baby once and a while. Plus I have been seeing cute little guys and gals everywhere lately for some reason, so a post about babies just seemed to be calling out to me.
We all know that thing men do. At the very last minute they take a gift and roll it up in newspaper, maybe adding a bow if we’re lucky, and then hand it off to the recipient with that “it’s wrapped, what more do you want” attitude. And I mean I don’t blame them, they probably have much better things they’d rather be doing than taking a half hour to dress up a present for that 10 seconds before someone rips it all off.

Happy Mothers Day! I hope you all had a wonderful time with family today and spoiled your mothers with love and little favours (my mom was so happy just because we did the morning dishes for her). I am so blessed that I still have all four grandparents alive and well, and so today we celebrated three mothers and two grandmothers at our house. And of course a Mothers Day would not be complete without gifts and cards, so I got to break out the stamping supplies and get a little creative.
