Bridesmaid Boxes!

Hey everyone!  Today I wanted to show you the boxes/gifts that I put together to ask my bridesmaids/maid of honour if they would be in our wedding. It was super easy and I loved how they turned out!

I picked out some succulents from my local greenhouse, bought some small pots to re-pot them, got some gold spray paint (now I want to spray paint EVERYTHING GOLD!), found some wooden boxes at the dollar store (that was probably the hardest part, finding what to put them in!) and picked up some treats for inside.  The cards that I used were from Happy Life Printables and I was so happy with them. I especially loved that they had the Canadian spelling for the maid of honour card!  Haha. I decided to go to the hardware store and pick up some paint chips in the colours that I would like the dresses to be.  Super easy to do and now when they go to pick out their dresses they can bring it with them and help find the colour!

WHOA. I'm back!

No, your eyes aren't deceiving you... I'm BACK!

Let's see what has happened since I last blogged regularly. My sister moved to England for two years, I went and visited her three times (and went to Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Germany and AH IT WAS SO AMAZING!), my contract at work ended but now I'm back full time and PERMANENT (woo!), I read a ton of books, crocheted & knit a bunch of things (along with doing some craft shows and selling lots locally), met some amazing new people... Oh, and Keith & I got ENGAGED!  

We got engaged May 12th, 2015 and our wedding is June 3rd, 2017!  Ahhh, I can't wait!  I've been in wedding planning mode for the last little while and I want to share everything on my blog.  That was kind of the kick to get me to start blogging again. Keith & I were supposed to do our engagement photos today, but the weather had other ideas... so we rescheduled for next Tuesday.  I'm SO pumped for Sara Monika to be our photographer - I'm pretty much obsessed with every single photo she posts.  

So, I just wanted to do a quick post & say I'M BACK!  Woo!  I'll be back soon with the bridesmaid boxes/gifts that I made!

Lots of yarn!

22/365: I had another day off!  So you know what that means... reading, tea, and a bath with a Lush bath bomb...

23/365: Homemade pizza.  I can't wait until the summertime so I can make pizza on the BBQ.  It's delicious.

24/365: Played around with my Project Life title page, picked out the colours for my Crochet Mood Blanket, and got my Knit Picks kit in the mail for the Hue Shift Afghan!

25/365: Keith picked up our tickets for MEXICO!!!  & I went to my Nana's and got some old photos.

26/365: Started packing for Mexico... I don't think Squirt wants me to go.

27/365: The beginning of my Crochet Mood Blanket.

28/365: Keith & I went down to Windsor and stayed at Rossi & Alison's for the night.  Met their new little kitty, Frosty! Lot

15/365: A little robe for Soph.

16/365: Huevos Rancheros.  Mmmmmm.

17/365: Went to the States the night before & picked up a bunch of awesome things.  Bath bombs on sale, new mugs, stationery, beer, tea, Project Life stuff...

18/365: I love this girl so much!  & she loves her new bed that was a Christmas present from Keith.  It's the perfect little size for her.  

19/365: Keith & I went over to Jesse & Lauren's house and gave Soph her Christmas present.  We had a little tea party while we were there, haha.

Typical!!!  hahaha.  These three are so alike. 
20/365: New Year's Eve!  My last book of the year (I read 54 in 2013.).  & a ton of group shots, haha.  I LOVE GROUP SHOTS.  I always make sure to take a ton... and they always turn out pretty hilarious.  

21/365: New Year's Day was a pretty lazy day!  Had a bath & read, did some knitting & crocheting, drank tea... my perfect day.

Oh hello!

Hey!  It's been a while, eh?  Well, hopefully today is the start of me regularly blogging again.  Key word: hopefully.  Ha.  Back in December, I decided to start a "Project 365" type thing, take a photo a day.   So, I figured I should finally just post the damn photos!  Haha.  Some days might have a few more photos, some might just have one.  My goal is to just take a photo of SOMETHING every day, and by doing that I'll get into the habit of taking more photos of every day things.  I loved doing the "Peek at My Week" posts, I started doing it in 2012 and when I go back and look at the photos, it brings back so many memories.  Plus, I'm trying to do Project Life this year, so these photos will really help out with that. 

Anyway, enough rambling, here are some photos:
1/365: My birthday.  For the past couple years, I start the day off with a mug of Birthday Cake tea from DavidsTea.  And yes, my birthday cake was a sheep.  Haha!

2/365: Sweet little Squirt laying by the Christmas tree.

3/365: Eiffel Tower ornament & a few group shots from the annual December birthday party at Jesse & Lauren's.  A bumper pool tournament was going on & a ball got moved during the group shot, haha.  
4/365: Snow!  I always wish for a bit of snow on my birthday.  This December (and January) was pretty snowy!
5/365: Lights on the tree.

6/365: I hate it when I hope I'm coming home from work to a package, only to have to wait until the next day to pick it up.  This happens way too much, haha.  

7/365: Birthday flowers from Sara (& Squirt!).

Okay, I think 7 days at a time is good enough.  Now, hopefully I'll keep this up... haha.  I don't even know if anyone (other than my Mom) is reading this anymore, but that's okay... I like being able to look back at everything.
