Deck Garden |

I really wanted to plant a herb and veggie garden this year - but with Spring/Summer being my busiest work months I didn't want anything too hard to handle.

So I used an old planter box that came with our house, painted it, and planted herbs in it. I also used some pots that I found in the garage to plant tomatoes, green onions and cherry tomatoes.

We will probably attached a dowel from one side to the other at the top of the planter to hang additional pots from.

Here is what it looks like:

Even if we harvest just once from all these plants the garden will more than pay for itself! And HOPEFULLY everything survives and yields a lot!

I can't wait to add home grown veggies and herbs to salads etc. this summer!

Artist Feature | Jenn Grant

I came across Jenn Grant's Cd 'Honeymoon Punch' at the library yesterday.

Her album cover was so beautiful that I picked it up and knew right away that I was sure to like it.

And sure enough I got home and popped it in and the music was amazing!

Below is a music video for her song entitled 'Getcha Good' as well as a video of her and her band perfomring one of my favourite songs, "Oh My Heart" on CBC's 'Q'.

Mother's Day |

My friend over at the Cosy Biscuit Blog put together a few quotes in a post for mother's day. I loved the quotes and found a few of my own as well to add to the Mother's day cards I was making.

I found quotes that totally fit with our moms (my mom and my new mom-in-law) and then wrote underneath each quote a personal 'thank you' to them.

I thought I would share the message that is on the inside of the cards with you in case you want to borrow the idea for your mom's mother's day card.
I figured I already stole other people's awesome quotes so why not share the idea with others!

Here is what I wrote:
Some quotes that remind us of our mothers:

I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me.
They have clung to me all my life.
~ Abraham Lincoln

If you have a mom, there is nowhere you are likely to go where a prayer has not already been.
~ Robert Brault
Thank you for your prayers.

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie. ~ Tenneva Jordan
Thank you for your sacrifices.

The phrase "working mother" is redundant. ~ Jane Sellman
Thank you for all of your hard work.

A Mother’s love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.
~Marion C.
Thank you for your continual encouragement.

'Me' New Watch |

I got a new watch today called a 'Me' Watch!

I needed a watch for when I am taking photos at weddings (as staying on schedule is very imperative to the job!) I needed something durable & lightweight and that would get in my way while taking photos so I was looking for a rubber band watch. I had one when I was 10 years old and it was the ONLY watch I ever liked (I hate big heavy uncomfortable watches).

So at Zellers today I found the 'Me' watch. It is made out of Silicon which is a very green product and I got it in a cute coral colour (it comes in many colours). It is a very lightweight band watch and it kinda looks like a bracelet. It is also waterproof so great for the beach too!

Plus it was only $14.99 so I great price and since it is soft it shouldn't get damaged or scratched while I am taking photos.

Maybe I will start a new watch trend for photographers!
