WeeStock 2014 Indie & Boutique Baby Show in Edmonton Area
DIY Pregnancy, Reviews & Giveaways

Shopping Local & Handmade for Baby (+ Win Tickets to WeeStock – Ends 10/06)

Ever since I had Little C almost 6 years ago, I caught the Handmade Baby Stuff Bug. There is something beautiful and special about making things with love for your littles. Handmade baby products are more unique than mass produced ones, and they’re often higher quality so that they can be passed down as sentimental heirlooms.

If you’re not a crafty maven or don’t have the time to make things for your new little one, there are so many talented mammas and artisans that can make special things for you. And do you know what else is wonderful? If you buy handmade and locally made things, you’re supporting moms and families like yourself! I love that thought.Continue reading

Raise your hand if you’re like me: you’re an introvert, you love to do crafts and you love unique fashion. Anyone? Good! I’m glad there are more people like me out there!

Order Adorable Christmas Photo Cards (and a Coupon Code for You!)

We had the most beautiful Fall photos taken of our family this year by my talented friend Tangible Moments. Here are some of my favourites (though I loved them all):

I’m determined this year to send off our Christmas cards in as timely of a fashion as possible (usually I’m much too late and my Christmas cards end up being New Year’s cards, or they’re even not sent out at all)!

Tiny Prints has the most beautiful and on-trend Christmas photo card layouts I’ve seen on the web, and I’ll be using our precious family photos to order some photo holiday cards from their site this year. There are so many sweet ones to choose from, but here are some of my absolute favourites:

The colours in this card just pop and I love the multi-photo layout so that we could pack as many photos into our cards as possible.

I’m a sucker for kraft paper, and this card features a kraft paper-ish background with sweet and simple text.

This concept is brilliant – you can add little text snippets of the highlight’s of your family’s year beside your photo!

Here’s another one with a similar layout idea. I love the thought of sharing little bits and pieces of your year with your family and friends.

Finally, the colours (hooray – it’s turquoise!) and the patterns in this last card caught my eye. It’s simple, but the family photo is center stage and the message is beautiful.

I’m am SO excited to fiddle around with different card layouts and get my cards out on time this year!
