Make Heart Shaped Beignets for Valentine’s Day

I’ve only ever heard of beignets from the Disney movie The Princess and the Frog. My girls enjoy that movie, and our dear heroine, Tiana, makes beignets in her New Orleans Cafe. Recently, I was curious about what they were exactly, and then when I found out that they were essentially baby donuts smothered in icing sugar, I was sold. We HAD to make these, and we had to make them for Valentine’s Day! Valentine’s Day is huge in our house – it’s Little C’s favourite holiday of the year – so finding the perfect treat for the day is a must. Let me show you how to make heart shaped beignets that I hope would make Tiana proud.Continue reading

I Choose Love Free Valentine Printable Artwork, Desktop Wallpaper & Phone Wallpaper

“Love is patient, love is kind.” You might be familiar with this Bible verse. It’s one of the most popular verses about love there is and it’s often recited at weddings and printed on artwork. We even have this verse hung on a sign in our master bedroom. I adore this verse, and I think it’s such a good reminder about how we need to CHOOSE to love. It’s not a fluffy feeling, it’s not a fleeting thought… it’s a choice to be unselfish and graceful and forgiving. My marriage, my motherhood, and my friendships have their ups and downs and things aren’t always sparkles and rainbows, but I want to CHOOSE to love my hubby, my friends and my kids through all of the trials we might face. I often need a reminder of how I need to choose to love, so I’ve created this pretty, floral artwork in honour of LOVE and in preparation of Valentine’s Day coming soon. Would you like this artwork, too? I’ve created a free printable artwork download just for you, along with free downloadable desktop wallpaper and free iPhone / smart phone wallpaper. Hooray for love!Continue reading

A Black & Blush Pink Living Room + DIY Pom Pom Heart Pillow

The fun thing about having neutral painted walls and furniture is that I can constantly play with accessories in our home. Changing up our pillows, throws and small decor items can completely change the look of our home decor, and it’s so easy and inexpensive! I recently felt like adding a little pink into our living room decor after seeing this blush pink, white and black breakfast nook. I really love a splash of pink for both Valentine’s Day and Spring! Here are some simple changes that I made to our living room, and I’ll show you how to make the sweetest DIY pom-pom heart Valentine pillow too.Continue reading
