Wood-look phone cases for your Samsung Galaxy or iPhone

Forest art case for Samsung Galaxy S6

Just a quick post to show off my favourite phone case yet. It’s from RealDesignRocks, an Etsy seller who makes it difficult to decide on just one design to wrap around your phone, be it a Samsung Galaxy or an iPhone. (I wrote this because I sincerely love this case & many, many of her other ones & I appreciate a good value. I am not being paid to write this or given free merchandise — though that’d be cool with me! Haha.) The cut-outs … Continue reading

Why we love the Dream On Me Pack N Play Mattress

Hi again! Sometimes I like something enough that I feel sharing a few tidbits about my experience with it will benefit people in similar situations. This is one of those times. Here’s my review on this pack n play mattress that seemingly has magical powers over our nap-resisting son. [This post contains affiliate links.]    When John started sleeping over at his grandparents’ place, they got a Graco Pack N Play. We had one already that we’d loved since he was first born but weren’t ready to part … Continue reading

Check it out: Handmade Hour & Crafty Saturday

Cedar Bee Handmade infinity scarves for kids

Every Wednesday I take part in #HandmadeHour and #HandmadeHourUSA (7 to 8 pm ET) on Twitter. There, I share items I’ve made most recently for my Cedar Bee shop, and retweet my favourite items others have shared with the same hashtag. (See, hashtags bring people together!) The amount of talent and unique items people share is awe-inspiring and the community is wonderful. If you’re someone who makes stuff, I strongly recommend both #HandmadeHour and #HandmadeHourUSA. You’ll have a good time, get some extra views, and maybe … Continue reading

Just a little update…

I know I talk a lot about bibs lately, but this is fast becoming THE thing I do now. I just wanted to show you a few new things I’ve whipped up this week: These newest bibs are reversible, and they can be rolled down to 1) add an adorable accent with their reverse side; and 2) fit smaller for younger babies! I’m revved up about reversible bibs. So much so that the wordplay just slipped out. Sorry about that. They have slouchy style, they’re soft … Continue reading

Cedar Bee Handmade Goods

Plushy toddler bibs

Good news! My new handmade collection, Cedar Bee Handmade Goods, now has a home. Go see it! I’ll be adding a blog (nothing like this wordy ol’ thing) eventually, but right now it’s set up to show you the freshest items as well as the featured in my shop. I’m currently stocking (ha ha!) Christmas scarf bibs that are blankety-soft and absorbent, not to mention seriously cute! In case you missed it, I wrote this the other day. It describes my decision to do something … Continue reading

Journal: New endeavour!

Christmas bibs

As I sit here on my big yellow couch watching Home Alone 2 a little too early in the season with a Gumby wedged into my ribcage apparently, I feel an update is needed. Our small boy is growing, and so fast. This week he learned the word “moonlight” because he is a sweet, silly boy and that’s what makes sense to him to learn at 19 months old. He loves his cats and dogs and has learned how to be gentle with them, and knows … Continue reading

Review: Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker

Bluetooth speaker with thick bassy sound

Remember this pre-Christmas list? I was delighted to discover that Miklos had this wonderful little sound box I’d mentioned wrapped and under the tree for me! Best! I decided to give it its own review post because it really is one of my favourite things. If you love taking your music with you wherever you go (e.g. parties, outside while you garden, BBQ or work, down by the dock or campfire, or even just from room to room) you will love this speaker. [This post contains … Continue reading

5 practical Christmas gift ideas they'll actually love!

Do you have someone in your life who’s tough to buy for because they seem to buy exactly what they want, when they want it? These people often have no idea what to say when you ask them what they’re hoping for this Christmas. I know. I have a few people like this to buy for on my list and it can be a challenge to shop for them. Here are a few things I use that I think would make great Christmas gifts — why? They’re the … Continue reading

Tangerine Holiday Double Bonus is Back!

woo hoo! tangerine ing direct holiday bonus returns!

I pass this on to my readers whenever I can because I like earning referral bonuses and I like when others get the chance to earn money for doing just about nothing too. Plus they’re a great bank. Read on. This year ING Direct became Tangerine when they were bought out by Scotiabank. Luckily, they still kept their popular holiday bonus promo where I refer you and they give you $50 free for enrolling using a referrer’s Tangerine Orange Key. If you like money, my Orange … Continue reading

Kitty sill bed for window-dwelling felines

I know a few fancy cats who would enjoy this thing: It’s $38.49 for a limited time and qualifies for Free Super Saver Shipping on Amazon.ca. What a bargain! Seriously speaking to the kitty people though: This would be a great DIY project, don’t you think?
