Face Paint - Elsa Snowflakes  - Suburble.com-1

Snowflake Face Paint (For your little Elsa)

By now, you’ll have already heard about Lila being Elsa for Hallowe’en, oh, only about eleventy million times.  But I will gladly jump on this bandwagon, because it means that we get to do it full force.  Lucy is going to be a hot dog, so that makes for a slightly more limiting Hallowe’en experience. …

Peach and Apple Crisp – Because the weather says so…

When the weather gets cold, hot desserts become a certain weakness of mine.  Even if it’s mid-afternoon, a big dollop of apple crisp on the plate is what you need to warm your bones. And this recipe is incredibly easy! A good apple (or peach, or plum, or whatever fruit you have on hand) crisp gets…

A Spooky Spiderweb Door (using magnets!)

This post brought to you by Krazy Glue. All opinions are 100% mine. The girls have been so excited for Hallowe’en. From chatter about Elsa to ghosts to Teddy Bear costumes to candy… it’s been non-stop.  And the spookiness has suddenly entered our house this year. The girls are interested in the ghoulish and ghastly….

My Craft Room – “The Before”

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  I’m glad for that, because I’m lacking in words when I look at this mess. I have a few curse words. Those are always dancing on my tongue as I walk past this depressing sight. The trouble is, we’ve been living in the renovation. There had…

Turkey Stew – using leftovers!

  If you live in Canada, you may have had turkey this past weekend. For some reason, our Thanksgiving is over a month before our Southern neighbours’ holiday.  It probably has to do with the fact that the vikings came here, and not the pilgrims. Or maybe it’s just because we’re stubborn and like to…

A Chocolate Orange Martini

You guys know that I love two things: 1) I love a good drink. Especially one in a martini glass. And second, I love getting festive with the season. Especially Fall. I love sweaters. Scarves. Boots. Putting on a tailored jacket over your grubby, paint-spattered t-shirt and going out in public, with nobody being the…

Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream

Hallowe’en is nearly here! Get inspired!

Hallowe’en is a great time to get crafty. The colour scheme is easy – blacks, browns, oranges, and perhaps the occasional purple-garbed witch – and the crafts are often simple. Hallowe’en loves to be a bit rustic… a tiny bit “thrown-together”. It’s fantastic for me – especially at this time of year. Is anyone else…

Elsa Crown- shining gold - Suburble.com-1

Make an Elsa Crown… from a cereal box!

I don’t know about your household, but in ours…. Elsa is a pretty big deal. She’s such a big deal that this mother made phone calls to not only her local Disney store, but to Disney stores in OTHER COUNTRIES to see if the “Elsa dress” was in stock. It wasn’t. Of course it wasn’t….

An Interview With My Kids #2

A big thank you to Drench Rainwear and Weaver Distribution for providing the raincoats and umbrellas in this post. We West Coast gals need good quality rain gear. It’s wet out here!  Would you trust that side-eye? Fall has snuck up on me. I’ll admit it.  We didn’t really get to soak up much of…
