Star Wars Cookies for Father’s Day

My husband is a wonderful dad, so I wanted to find him something special for Father’s Day. Lucky for me, a few weeks back Bakerella had a post about Star Wars cookie cutters and I knew I’d found the perfect gift! Also lucky for me, a friend in The Centre Of The Universe (aka Toronto) was able to pick them up for me since we don’t have a Williams-Sonoma in Ottawa.The set comes with 4 cookie cutters of 4 characters (from left): Boba Fett, Yoda, Storm Trooper and Darth Vader. There’s also easy to follow Read more […]

My scrapbooking challenge

I used to be an avid scrapbooker, but I’ve barely touched my stash in over a year! I have (almost) everything that I need to do Ashlyn’s “first year” scrapbook but I lack the motivation to start it. I’ve just got scrapping block! Since I don’t live close to the girlfriends that I used to scrap with anymore, I’ve decided that I need to set myself a challenge so that I get back in the swing of things. My goal is going to be one page a week for the rest of the summer, starting this week. I do tend Read more […]
