Tooth Fairy Pillows

 As a mom to small children, I know that losing teeth happens on a regular basis. I also know that it can be a major pain in the butt to try to feel under the pillow to retrieve this tiny tooth and replace it with money. So when our dental hygienist gave me the opportunity to sew some tooth fairy pillows for her to sell in her office, I thought what a great idea!

Fully Loaded Baked Potato Salad

I was going to a potluck and needed something to bring. Since I live quite far away, I decided to take a potato salad. While looking for a recipe, I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for. I liked a little bit of one recipe and a little bit of another recipe, so I decided to make a combination of both. I call this one the
Fully Loaded Baked Potato Salad
Imagine taking a baked potato loaded with everything and putting it into a salad.

It turned out yummy!!

Gift Ideas

I will look for any reason to give a handmade gift. I love giving and I try to teach my children that it is better to give than receive.

 Whether it be for a teacher, a friend or a family member. Unfortunately, a lot of my gift giving was done pre- blog so I will find the resource I used to re-create it and any changes that I made.

Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Teachers are one of the number one reason that I give gifts. I think that they work so hard for our children that they deserve a little appreciation.

Teacher Appreciation gift

This idea came from Scrap Happens

I gave one similar to this to my daughter’s pre-school teacher. I love the crayons!

Easy Cross Stitch Gift

My parents got married when I was 18 years old. They have a blended family. My mom has 4 grown children and my step-dad has 5. For Christmas last year, I decided to make them a gift that was truly unique and one of a kind. Since all of the kids (and grandkids) are spread throughout Canada and the United States, I thought I would do something around that. I came across an idea on Pinterest that showed a cross stitch pattern of the state of Texas with a little heart over a certain city. Our family is spread out through Alberta, British Columbia, Washington, and Texas so I decided to make my own.

DIY Personalized Bookmarks

When it comes to giving gifts to friends and family, I always prefer to give something personal and meaningful with a little DIY. We were having a little get together for a friend’s birthday with some of the girls and we all brought some libations and nosh and my contribution were these unbelievable strawberries with Jell-O margaritas inside them! You can find the recipe here.

 I know that she really enjoys reading, I thought why not make a bookmark!

And as a mom, who wouldn’t want pictures of your kids, so this is what I came up with.
