Canada Day IG giveaway and SCHOOL'S OUT!

Hello friends!  Happy Canada Day!  I am feeling really lucky today.  The sun is shining, I live in a great country, have health and family....life is good!  I am giving thanks with a small giveaway on Instagram of this perfectly Canadian mug, along with some red and white scraps.  Be sure to hop over there to enter, it's one day only!  I am "kristieocd" over there :)



The kids are really pumped about the start summer vacation.  Big G finished his first year at private school, and has "graduated" on to middle school.  It was a challenging year of change, but I am proud of how he persevered.  He made so many great new friends and learned a lot about himself.



The girls will be joining him at private school next year, too.  So we had to say goodbye to our elementary school yesterday!  So many wonderful memories and teachers we have had there.  To say goodbye, I brought in containers of homemade cookies and mason jars, that the girls painted with chalk paint (my new favourite thing) and filled with flowers.



For their teachers, I made these fun gift card holders with cards inside as gifts, along with some other treats.



(We also made a dance version for the dance teachers!)



For LBNL's teacher, who collects antique quilts that she has hung around her classroom, we made a mini quilt for her classroom wall.  LBNL chose the book pattern and all the fabrics, and I pieced and hand quilted it.  On the back there is a special message from LBNL. Her teacher was thrilled and said it would be special to her forever.  As she will be to us!


Lots more to share with you and hoping to do some catching up.  Be back soon (I promise!).

Hi there. I want to tell you something. I use this site https://bestwritingservice.com/essay-editing.html often. Sometimes I need to do tasks that I can't do. So I use additional resources.
