They are a great Canadian sound and I LOVE their harmony!

A great new sound for the summer - On my Ipod for this long weekend for sure!

Custom Escort Cards |

An old friend from high school asked me if I made Escort Cards. At the time I wasn't offering any, but after I mocked up a couple of options for her I thought, "Why not offer these to more brides in my Etsy shop?"

So here is the link to my listing for Custom Escort Cards

Brides work hard to ensure that every little detail of their day matches their theme & colour scheme so I wanted to offer escort cards that are fully customizable!

Brides choose their own colour and font and their initials are placed in the background of the escort card!

Here are a few samples of the place cards:

If you are looking for a unique wedding program that fits your personality as well as the theme & style of your big day, look no further.

These Mini Newspaper's made by KO TWO Designs allow you to have a program that is not only informative for your guests but also entertains them at the same time.


The programs include a 'Top Story' all about you as a couple including several photos of you throughout the paper, along with your ceremony's order of events, a list of the bridal party members, and lots of free space for you to come up with fun ads and sections that show off your personality and the theme of your day.

I could NOT believe how beautiful they were!

They are made by Andie's Specialty Sweets.

If I had found these prior to my wedding they would have definitely been on my wedding cake!

A Feastival of Folks |

I am looking forward to going to this year's Folk Festival July 15-17 at Victoria Park.

My fav artist Hawksley Workman is performing along with many other great artists such as Emm Gryner and Sarah Harmer.

Hair Flares | I'm a "Featherhead"

I got my hair done today at Skintreet here in London by Annette, a great hairdresser.

The receptionist had a 'Hairfeather' in her hair, and so I asked about them and the more I heard about them the more I liked the idea of having one in my hair too.

They simply tie around a few strands of your hair and are held in with a small bead. They can be washed, dried, flat ironed, curled etc. AND they will last for up to 2 months!

When I got home I looked into them and here is the official Featherhead website.

And below is a promo video for the feathers along with a few pictures of how mine looks.

They also put 'Hair Tinsel' in a number of the girls hair while I was there and it is also a really nice look. It adds a little bit of subtle sparkle to your hair when the light catches it.

Here is the official Candian Hair Flares website.

DIY Scrunch Belt |

I made this really cute 'scrunch belt' yesterday!

Somehow awhile ago I stumbled across a tutorial on youtube about how to make this type of belt.

It looked really simple and I just happened to be at Fabricland yesterday during a 50% off sale so I picked up the items needed (fabric, elastic band and a belt clasp). I got everything I needed to make the belt for around $5.00!!

It was so easy to make - I think I will make more to give as gifts and even to sell on Etsy! Might be a good project for up at the cottage on my summer holiday this year!

Big Fan Of | DNTO Podcasts

HERE is a link to where you can listen to the podcasts!

Ice Cube Tray Treats | Kids Party Planning

Ice cube trays aren't only for ice anymore!

They also make a great serving dish for yummy treats while also keeping portion sizes small.

Wouldn't it be fun to have a buffet table of treats at your child's birthday party, giving each child their very own funky coloured ice cube tray so that they could fill each slot with a different item of their choosing?!

OR why not give each child their very own ice cube tray full of various sundae toppings so that they could decorate their very own sundae with a little bit of everything!?

Continue the theme by giving each child an ice cube tray full of fun craft supplies and allow them to be creative with all of the materials! This way each child gets the same amount of craft supplies and there are no arguments over who used too much glitter!

Check out these fun shaped ice cube trays HERE

Or get these trays with shaped slots at IKEA
