Fun wreath idea- Tiny swimsuits on the clothesline

Since we’re in the dead heat of summer and Canada Day has passed I had to get down my spring wreath and outfit the front door with a new summer wreath. The one good thing that came from hurricane Arthur was some crafty time (but I still have no internet, I have to camp out at my moms when […]

I wanted to create a cute set of patio lanterns for the kids playhouse  that would be colourful and fun, so […]

Popsicles made easy with PC Watermelon Lemon Soda- So yummy and refreshing! #PCSummer

I’ve had the craziest week, hence the lack of blog work. Hurricane Arthur hit our community quite hard and left us with no power for 4 days. Not only no power, but my computer took a hit, as well as our fridge and freezer. Thankfully our home didn’t have any major damage on the outside, and my mom […]


Summer at the Fynes

July 3rd, 2014 | Family

When I was recently asked to blog about summer at our house I kinda got really nervous and thought what in the world am I going to say? Honest truth, summer is the busiest 3 months of my year. Like the word crazy doesn’t really sum it up. I’m going every which way, trips to Costco, […]


Yesterday was Canada Day and although we don’t go all out to the extent that Americans do for July 4th, we certainly know how to celebrate our nation and show our pride. Mainly with a beer in hand, but we also had a hearty feed of pancakes drizzled with local Maple Syrup, and ended the […]

Small Craft Room Area

FREE Silhouette cut files for Camper decals- use as bumper stickers, on the window/ doors or even on the cooler!

We love camping, so when our group came up with the idea for a Camping themed blog hop I knew I had to plan something super fun- Camping Decals! Our family doesn’t exactly camp in modern style, we started with one of those pop up campers circa 1970, but as our family got a bit bigger (and […]

Fun Bridal shower game based on wedding themed movies

I love hosting parties- especially bridal and baby showers. One of my favourite parts, next to the decorations is the party games. I always try to come up with unique bridal shower games that won’t break the bank plus something that people will want to participate in (because not everyone wants to swing their hot dog at […]

Delicious and EASY to make homemade crouton recipe. You have to try!

  I’m a long time crouton lover, I love anything in salad that gives a big crunch. However, I don’t like the break your tooth crunch you get from some store boughten croutons. While there is no way to get around having ‘healthy’ croutons, some salads just need them, and if you’re going to have them […]
