Holiday Crafts for Kids




I saw these on www.thebestideasforkids.com and got crafty with my kid. They are really simple to make and are a great keepsake for years to come.

Grab some popsicle sticks, twine, stickers for embellishment, black buttons, paint, a sharpie, cardstock, and some cotton balls. Oh, and don't forget the glue (as I did above)! Get creative and have fun!

Holiday Cookies to Cook with Kids



This is a very simple recipe that can be made with kids. Get out the cookie cutters and have some fun! You can paint on an icing glaze (icing sugar mixed with milk and food colouring) to keep the sugar content down. For a thicker icing use 1 cup of icing sugar, 2 teaspoons of milk, 2 teaspoons of corn syrup and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract and food colouring.

Mama needs some new shelving!


VOTE FOR US in the FedEx Small Business Grant Competition...pretty please!

The store is in dire need of a makeover as it has been running for over 18 years (9 with the previous owner). The concrete floors are damaged from years of strollers, and the shelving has seen its day. With a redesign, I could fit more products into a smaller space. To accommodate new demands, I would add a changing room for moms so that I could integrate modern, organic maternity clothing. This is something that is lacking in our neighborhood, and I am frequently asked for.

We appreciate all of your votes, thank you!

Are you curious about cloth diapers? They have come a long way from the diaper pinning days of yore. Today’s parents who are looking for an environmental and economical alternative to disposables can find a wide range of cloth diaper styles and accessories that make using cloth as simple and convenient as disposables.

Researching cloth diaper options is often the most daunting part of choosing cloth. Most retailers carry several brands and styles of diapers, and there is a vast amount of information online and in books. There is a lot of information out there to sift through so here is a simple introduction to cloth diapers to help you get started.

Happy International Women's Day!
