I adore buying handmade things for my home – knowing that someone has taken the time and effort into creating something for my home with their own hands, it makes the items a little more special. Shelley Jacobsen has created a beautiful line of handmade goods for the home with her Etsy shop: Jac & Jil.
Gray Ombre Tea Towels
There you will find beautiful pillow cases, tea towels and napkins – made from natural cotton and flour sack fabrics, dip dyed by hand in various colours. There’s something very effortlessly chic about Jac & Jil that I love. View Post
Nik Naks Glass is an impressive shop by Trisha from Whistler, BC. She creates handcrafted fused glass coasters, plates, jewelry and even Christmas ornaments! Fusing different colours of glass together is an interesting process that you can read about here.
I love all the different colours she uses in her work, and I’ve chosen some of my favourite items to showcase in this post! Trisha (that’s her to the right!) has very generously offered to give away a set of four glass coasters to a lucky reader!
Supporting local shops is important to me, especially during this time of year, so I was super excited to find out that Nik Naks Glass is located just north of me in Whistler! View Post
Today’s lovely giveaway is brought to you by Lindsay from Sew Cute by Lindsay, a pair of adorable stuffed owls – perfect as stocking stuffers, Christmas gifts for children, or even as cushions for your own decor! These owls can be completely customized to match your decor by using different fabric patterns and colours!
Ollie the Owlet in Elves & Green Chevron Belly
When searching for children’s Christmas gifts, I always strive to find something a little different, a little special, something that is educational but still FUN! While there’s nothing wrong with picking up the latest Elmo or Barbie dreamhouse (because we’ve had those too!), sometimes it’s nice to get something a little less ordinary!
1. Personalized Books
I See Me! creates personalized books for your little ones, adding their name to the story and even using the letters in their names to rhyme with! I like that there’s an assortment of books to choose from, a board book for the toddler in your life and a gorgeous hard-cover story book for your school-aged kid!

Today’s giveaway is a $25 Starbucks Card – and is there a more perfect way to get into the holiday spirit other than drinking your favourite hot chocolate or gingerbread latte in a bright red cup? View Post
I remember making my mom a coupon book for Mother’s Day. I know it included great deals such as: “free back rub” and “will clean my room!” It was hand-drawn and coloured with crayons, it was cute, but it doesn’t hold a candle to these love coupon books made by Datevitation.
