Easy Halloween Decorations

As you all know, I am not crafty!  But I do like to try and I love anything that is super easy to craft.  I have been venturing into the land of bloggy crafting lately and been dreaming about all the amazing things I could possibly make.  Then I wake up and look for the super easy things I really can make.

I will be posting a few super easy and fun things that I have made recently, and that you can make too!!

Here’s my first easy Halloween Decoration:

Toilet Paper Pumpkin Thanks to The Sweet life

If I can make these,,, you can to.  Check out the site to see how super duper easy it is.  I have these in the bathroom – makes sense, they are made with rolls of TP.

Style Kid -$75 Gift Certificate – CLOSED

As you know, my daughter recently turned 2 and we have been in the process of transitioning from a crib to a big girl bed.  I thought the transition would be a lot easier for her, especially since her bed looks like it belongs straight out of a magazine thanks to the bed set that we received from Style Kid.

We chose the Mod Butterfly comforter and sheet set for review.  My daughters room is white, pink and brown (with a few black accents as well), and this set matches perfectly and also has a bit of green as well.    The set is perfect for a small toddler bed (not a single bed, a bed that fits a crib mattress).

This is a 4 piece set that includes:

  • 42″ W x 55″ L comforter
  • flat sheet
  • fitted sheet
  • one standard pillowcase

The set that we received did not include a fitted sheet (we received 2 flat sheets), so I contacted Alison, the owner of Style Kid.  She looked into the situation and within a week, I had the fitted sheet in hand.  Other than that little hiccup the set is perfectly fine.

I do wish that I had more of the set to go along with the comforter and sheets to the whole entire bedroom matches (complete with curtains and such).  If I would have been thinking about the future when decorating my daughters room before she was born perhaps I would have looked into a full bedroom set and the toddler bed set could have just been an addition to her matching room.   Instead, I wanted to get  my own fabric and now I I don’t have the time (or desire) to make my own bedding for my daughter.  Plus I would have never been able to make anything as sweet as the Mod Butterfly set that I received from Style Kid.

The bed looks adorable doesn’t it?  Wouldn’t you love to sleep in this cute bed each night?!?  I sure would.  However, my daughter isn’t quite ready to make the plunge.   She plays in it during the day and lets her babies sleep in there.  So for now, we have the toddler bed and the crib set up at the same time.  I can’t wait till we can take the crib down, we are hoping to do this shortly, so my daughters room can be completely a big girl room with her brand new bed and comforter set. (I wrote this review a few weeks ago, and we are doing much better with bed time!!)  Yeahh!!!

Canadians, I have another AWESOME deal website for you!

If you like to get things at good prices, then check out TeamBuy.ca

This website has a local deal each and everyday for restaurants, plays, entertainment,,, you name it.  Here’s the way it works, a company offers a very special deal of the day and if enough people purchase the deal of the day, you all get it!

The deal is usually at least 50% off the regular price.

Each city has their own deal of the day.

For example, today in Halifax, you can get 51% off at Sushi Nami Royale.  So it costs only $17 for $35 worth of Sushi.

There is a different TeamBuy site for each major city across Canada, check out the deal of the day in your city and sign up for the daily deal of the day email so you don’t miss out!

PS. They are going to be on Dragon’s Den tonight too!

Stitcheroo – $25 Gift Certificate – CLOSED

With a name like DD, it’s nearly impossible to find personalized things right off the shelf (except in Quebec, where DD seems to be a very popular name).  For my daughter’s second birthday, I wanted a personalized birthday and name tee, and Stitcheroo seemed like the place to get it.

On top of getting my daughter’s first name and age on a white tee, I was also able to get the princess theme from her birthday carried on to her shirt too.  People notice fine details, and this is one thing that got noticed.  People were first amazed that she had a personalized birthday tee, and then saw that it had princess crowns on it, just like the rest of the party.  I felt pretty good about it too!

On top of being adorable, the shirt is very high quality as well.  Before my daughter’s party, we used this shirt for her invitations.  I sat her on the stairs and took a bunch of pictures so we could hopefully use one that would be perfect for her invites.  The shirt looked so cute, that we left it on all day – big mistake.  We ended up eating spaghetti, or something else with red staining power that evening, and my daughter’s very special birthday shirt looked like it was in the middle of a war zone.  To say I was upset at my husband is an understatement (because we all know that things like this is my husbands fault –  I must have been shopping or something that evening).  I thought for sure, without a doubt, the shirt would never be worn again.

We washed the shirt, and sure enough, there were still some orange stains on it.  I showed it to my Mom and she took it straight back to the washer – did her “Mom” thing, and when it came out of the dryer, I was amazed to see that the shirt was wearable again and stain free.  Aren’t Mom’s great?  They can really fix everything!

I then ensured that the beautiful Stitcheroo birthday shirt was not worn again until the day of the party.

This was the perfect shirt for DD’s second birthday.

Stitcheroo has over 12 pages on her Etsy store of great party clothing including, personalized shirts,onesies and tutus so there is sure to be something for everyone (even the boys).  There are many popular themes for the personalized birthday tees, such as lady bugs, baseball and monkeys – and you can pick the colours!
