Floral Friday – Valentine’s Day Roses

I was having a busy morning cutting fabric and preparing new designs for an upcoming craft fair, when I was startled by the doorbell suddenly ringing.


RMS Beauty

I am in love with my RMS Beauty products!  Love, love, love!

It all started back in the fall of 2014 when I finally got around to purchasing their “un” cover-up.   Seriously amazing stuff without all the yucky additives found in other brands.  You can see my initial rave about the “un” cover-up here.   Suffice it to say, I love it so much I added several additional RMS Beauty products to my Christmas wish list.  Well I am one lucky girl as I got all my requested items, including their:


Holiday Gift List – The Chef/ Foodie

When I have time, I love to cook!  I enjoy reading my cookbooks, researching recipes on-line and generally checking out all the food porn!  I've got quite a few chefs and foodies in my family; this list is in honour of all the family get togethers and celebrations past and those to come:



Éclairs are my dad’s favourite dessert and thus a necessity in my cooking repertoire. 

Here’s one from a batch I made for Father’s Day this year (the rest got eaten before I could snap some shots!).


Ella’s Botanicals Gift Basket

I’m so excited to receive my Ella’s Botanicals gift basket that I won on Instagram!  I seldom win, so I was completely surprised when I got the notice I had won!

If you don’t know Ella’s Botanicals you are missing out on some really great skincare products that are amazing for the entire family’s use.  Created and headed up by Ella, all of her products are made in small batches in Toronto, Canada focusing on natural, locally sourced ingredients where possible and are biodegradable.  Good for you and not harmful to our lovely planet.  Love that!


Floral Friday – Tiny White Chrysanthemums

Happy Friday loveys!

I’m so sorry for the lack of posts as of late.  Things have been really busy with s/f Designs, which is great!  But it means I haven’t had a lot of extra time to dedicate to my blog posts.  I’ve got a bunch in the works, so stay tuned; more are on the way!
