Yay, the warm weather is on its way! For us, that means it’s time to start project planning related to the realm of woodworking. We were lucky enough to have a decently mild March, and April is looking promising too. Project #1 is already underway.
Are you still stopping off at Timmy’s, Starbucks or Rotten Ronnie’s on your way in to work for a quick bite? That $5 a day could go towards better things if you make your own breakfast burritos, at a fraction of the cost. We’ve done this a few times now and ours only cost about $1.50 each and are made with fresh ingredients - here’s how!
Halloween isn’t just a good excuse for dressing up and eating candy – it’s a good excuse to get creative too! Like any [unofficial] holiday, decorating is part of the fun.

Important Things to Remember:
Although we currently renters and don’t yet own our home, we like to make the best of our living space. Some of that includes decorating (mostly my doing) and other important aspects revolving around functionality. Each house is different of course and everyone has different tastes, but there’s a few ideas below that you might just want to try at home.
I came across some wooden bird houses at the dollar store a few weeks ago and decided I wanted to turn them into something cute for my upcoming nuptials. They were only $3 each and I had a good idea of what I wanted to create. After about 2 hours of on-and-off work over the course of a week, I am quite happy with the finished product!
So I’ve decided to start a “Projects” section on this blog, as my boyfriend and I have done several projects together and I think others could benefit from seeing them (for inspiration, understanding and suggested processes – and trials and errors too). Earlier this summer a large amount of free cedar was offered at my workplace due to construction improvements, and I instantly thought huge outdoor planter and took what I could fit in my car! I told my boyfriend about the idea and to help liven up our backyard a bit and he went to work on a design plan. You can view the building process and finished product here – he also shared his comments on the process (hit the info icon on each image for details).
I’m working my way through life in Canada and traveling when I can afford to explore beyond the border. Sharing my tips, trips, opinions and rants on life and travel in the meantime.
