It’s taken 2 years, 2 spring, summer and fall seasons; to actually USE our second floor balcony. There are 2 reasons for this. One, being that I was a tad bit over-protective in letting my little ones actually step foot out there.
I read far too many headlines about babies and toddlers falling to death or serious injury. That such a thing could happen in the blink of an eye. In the presence of any of us, not just neglectful parents. Which is how I rationalized my irrational fears about our balcony.
Then I grew up as a parent a little bit. As in I’m slowly becoming a less obnoxious helicopter parent as the years go on. So this year? This year we’re actually enjoying this space. I’m just not letting them out there by themselves…
I’ve been a kick of creating Treasuries on Etsy lately, like this most recent one. And yes, it’s chock full of baby gift ideas. All chosen from Canadian sellers. This, my friends, was no easy task. But so rewarding in that I have found so many amazing fellow Canadian artisans! Bring on the trades! Even if you don’t have a little one – surely there is a carpet dweller on your list this year? If no, then keep a look out for some awesome Fashionista, Geekery, Holiday Decor and Gifts For Him Treasuries I’ll be putting together over the next few weeks. Just sayin’.
When last night this lovely Etsian notified me that she curated my Bear & Beaver Clan 3D Dreamcatcher Baby Mobile! What an honour! I seriously had to sit on my credit card when viewing the adorable elephant here, and the BSM are in discussions over ordering it for the WSL for Ecksmas.
Many of these shops offer custom work (at no additional cost), gift wrapping and tagging (at little to no extra cost). Like mine. Big box stores, what? Who? Phhhht! Happy Shopping! Actually really, especially if you abhor malls, most especially during the holidays. Your welcome for introducing you to all of this awesomeness. Don’t mention it 😉
Without further a due, I present to you my first and perhaps last giveaway winner! Heh heh. I mean, that has never really been my thing here – but I thought I’d give it a whirl, because well, I had these tickets for the most excellent Steven & Chris Show.
