Mike's Birthday Balloons Revisited



Last year for my boyfriend's 30th birthday I surprised him with 30 balloons, each one blown up, stringed and tied to each string a photo of him.  Believe it or not I saved all of those balloons because I just didn't have the heart to toss them, especially since they weren't as biodegradable as I had hoped!

So, this year I decided to make something good out of them.  I made a 31 balloon birthday card for his birthday this year.  I was able to reuse the balloons and make it a gift for him - again!  The next step would be to frame it or add it to a scrap book.  Any other suggestions? I'd love to hear them.


Mike loved the birthday card and his birthday surprise visit to the Ontario Science Centre.


Happy Birthday Mikey!
Love you!

Busy, Busy, Busy ... but Happy New Year!


First off, HAPPY 2013 TO EVERYONE!  I hope this year will be the greatest yet for everyone.  For me, it's been a non-stop year so far.  Leading up to 2013 it was especially busy and doesn't seem to be slowing down any time soon.  From holiday parties, family gatherings, friendly visits, a new job, and many new year's revolutions I hope to achieve, it's been difficult to find the motivation or even the time to sit down and write something - anything!

So, for now I wish everyone health, happiness and the Eco-friendliest year yet to come.  For myself, I hope to create and cook up more delightful meals this year and to share them here.  I also hope to achieve some personal goals - getting finances in order, buying a home (a farm preferably), maybe even starting a family, spending more time with friends and family, and of course, more traveling!

Okay, so somewhere in my ambitious schedule I do hope to find the time to write. Until then ... make this year great!
