Cheers to the freakin' weekend!

Guess what? IT'S A LONG WEEKEND! WOO! 

Here in Canada we have ourselves a 3 day weekend.... and we have a lot of fun things planned to keep us entertained. This mayyyyy include some crafty ideas that we are looking forward to sharing with you. I mean c'mon, what's a long weekend without picking up the crochet hooks and glue guns? 

We kicked it off with some tasty beverages... cheers to the freakin' weekend! For all you Canadians out there, have a very happy Canada day on Monday!

The baby crafting continues....

We have so many baby projects on the go, and so few we can share with you! (We don't want to ruin any surprises!) I made this hat for my lovely friend Lindsay who is expecting in September, and couldn't wait to give it to her.

DIY Mason Jar Terrariums from @meetmakelaugh

Not sure if it's just us, but we keep seeing terrariums everywhere and it was love at first sight. We decided to make our own, and if you don't have a green thumb like us, than these little plants are a great home project for you! AND they only take 10 min (if that!) to assemble.

meet.make.mail exchange.

When Claire from clairebellemakes contacted us about doing a mail exchange, we were super excited. Having never done a mail exchange before, we thought it would be really fun! 

Claire lives in Cambridge, which is literally on the other side of the world from us here on Vancouver Island. How excited were we to receive a parcel with a stamp saying "Royal Mail"? Haha we don't get that around here very often! 

Though we were looking forward to receiving a parcel, it was also really fun to put together a package for Claire. Our goal was to put together a bit of Canadiana to send. To see what we ended up mailing, check out her post here!

The big 3-0.....

The day has arrived....... HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY CINDY! 

Happy 30th Birthday Cindy!

29 was a big year for Cindy. She got a new job, she and her husband Josh moved, and she got knocked up! She may have also partaken in lots of crafty fun with the ladies as well, which can be eventful too... right? 

29 will be nothing compared to 30 though, because a baby is on the way! And how perfect is it to be 30 weeks pregnant on your 30th birthday? 

So to our dear friend Cindy - wishing you the most amazing birthday and a wonderful and exciting year to come! Love ya!

Bridesmaid Dress DIY

After all the planning it is hard to believe Hayley's wedding is finally over! The happy couple are off galavanting on their honeymoon and having a grand ol' time I'm sure. 

When Hayley asked us to be bridesmaids, we were so excited that we got to be part of the day. She decided on Navy for the dress colour, but then told us we could find any dress we like. After browsing on the internet for awhile, I decided on this dress from Modcloth. 

I liked the shoulder detail on the dress, but didn't feel it was appropriate for the wedding. Time to make a few changes!
