Having an excuse to dress up my toddler, and having her cooperate, (even for a short space of time) is the answer to my Christmas wish this year! I know I am meant to do the whole introduction thing, but I just want to show you these photos quick! Seriously!! I may or may not have gone a little overboard because LOOK at this stuff!! How could I not?? So here we go, All I Want for Christmas is to dress up my toddler (and I got it)! [Read more…]
If you had to ask me to choose one thing that I consider to be the perfect gift, it would be books – ALL the books! As an adult, that is nearly impossible to manage, because we are all so very specific about what we love, what genres we love, what style of writing we love, what authors we love. This is the magic of buying books for children, they are still on that journey… They have favourites (I hear the understanding groans of the toddler mom who has read Toddle Waddle every day for the last year), but they still have that wonder of reading every new book; discovering the endless gifts that stories have to give. Being a book obsessed mama, I have found the very best book suppliers and services there are, and that is what I am going to share with you today. So my title may be a little misleading, because All I want for Christmas is ALL the books… for ALL the kids!
I wish all of you could win something this special from Watercolour Heart to share with your loved ones this Christmas. Sadly there can be only one winner, but I hope you send those photos through to Jess and let her create one of these amazing Christmas sets for you. [Read more…]
I have written a “perfect gift for my hubby” list before and many of those gifts remain the same; but since I can’t just buy those for him again, here are a few more ideas that are just awesome! You may note some of the same names appearing again, because the brands I have found for this series are so phenomenal and flexible that they cover so many of my bases for gifts!
When it comes to Christmas, I was born to be a mom. I am ALL about the magic and excitement and the decorating and finding the perfect gift for my toddler. My Christmas list for Charly is literally endless, I add to it every day; every time I see anything that I think she might love, I tend to buy it. I’m the worst, I know, and this is why I am always broke; but I cannot resist seeing her light up over a gift. Deciding what to put on this particular list for all of you was SO hard, I hate leaving things out! These are some of my very favourites though, so here we go… All I want for Christmas is the perfect gift for my toddler!
Merrrrrrry Christmas! Well, not quite, but I’m starting the Christmas spirit extra early this year to help you get ready for the season. I have been doing what I love best, searching the Interwebs for amazing people and brands that do what they do better than anybody else. And for the next two months, I will be introducing my favourite brands, products and services to you in my “All I want for Christmas is…” series, so you can get started on your Christmas lists. There is nothing that gets me in the mood for the season quite as strongly as gorgeous decorations; little touches that just make you smile. And so we begin with “All I want for Christmas is… To decorate!”
I am having a rough week, and I needed to do something to lift my spirits, so I decided to announce my new series launching next week. It occurred to me that I didn’t have to actually wait for Christmas this year to get into the spirit. As you all know, the spirit for me is all about giving, about showing others how much I care about them by finding the perfect gift.
