Washi Wreath Night - Washi Anonymous

This week was very exciting for some friends and I. We have decided to start a craft group and we are going to have either monthly or bi-monthly get togethers where we will create something wonderful. We decided that for our very first event, we would plan a craft that we would all do and see how it went. In future, we will probably do some nights with a plan and some where we just bring whatever we are working on and go to town!

Since a few of us are totally addicted to washi tape, we called our little group Washi Anonymous. We even made a Facebook group to organize and plan and inspire each other. I am so happy that we have started this group for a number of reasons. Now that we have had our first event I am pretty sure the #1 reason I love it is for the awesome girl time! We crafted and chatted and ate yummy snacks! It was so refreshing!

10 Easter Crafts for Kids {Perfect Pins}

After a couple of weeks off from Thursday's Perfect Pins, I'm excited to share this week's awesome finds! With everything that was going on in my pregnancy, I slacked a bit...

So, are you getting ready for the Bunny's big visit?? Here are a list of 10 of the very cutest kids' crafts I could find for Easter! I am excited to try a few of these on the upcoming weekend (we'll have a backup plan in case the weather is rainy).

I'm totally loving the handprint/footprint ones that would be perfect keepsakes!  There's quite a few of them in various forms.  Hope you enjoy these and find something to do with your own little ones!

Simple Easter Centrepiece

I'm getting things ready for Easter, and I realized that I had been wanting to make a centrepiece for quite some time now. With all the nesting I had been up to, I had stashed away a lot of my crafting goodies to get the house organized. Earlier today I remembered about the idea I had a few weeks ago and so I picked up the rest of the supplies I needed from the Dollarama and got to it this evening!  And wow, I'm super glad I did! This project turned out so great!

The boys helped a little with the washi tape (they love it as much as I do!), and they love the finished project. The couldn't wait to show Dad!... And I think he secretly loves it too. Hehe!

DIY Baby's Nursery Sign

Here's a cute and easy little project that my wonderful friend and I made during my exciting hospital stay! She brought all the supplies and surprised me with this project.  It couldn't have turned out cuter!  What a better way to put in an evening than with washi tape and a glue gun?!

I really hope that when we use this on the baby's door, the boys get the message! Maybe we will start hanging it in preparation and they can practice...

37 Weeks - Pregnancy Update

Yesterday morning, I woke up to overcast day. The past few have looked bright and sunny and springy from my hospital room. I have not been permitted to leave the building, so I have been enjoying it through my window. This week marks 37 completed weeks of pregnancy!  I can't even believe it. I can't understand where the time has gone, although I feel like it may have passed more quickly because we have been running against the clock, waiting for this placenta previa to move. So that likely explains why it feels that it has gone so fast.... I've been wishing the time slower so that there is plenty for the miracle I've been waiting for.

The time in this hospital room has been long. I am glad that I packed for it. I had packed yarn to finish baby's blanket, my laptop to enjoy some Netflix and to keep posting, books and magazines, and snacks to get me through. I also have amazing friends who have been here helping me through the time, bringing me delicious food & treats, and activities to pass the time. Its been so wonderful to have the support and love from my friends and family, and I am sure that this would have been an absolutely horrible experience without them!
