mother’s day gift ideas: get name necklace

Mother’s Day is less than 8 weeks away, which means that it is time to start thinking about what to buy your significant other, your own mother, or special woman in your life. Or, like I used to do before I had children, myself!

One website that I have recently discovered is GetNameNecklace. They offer beautiful, personalized jewelry at low prices. Let’s take a look at some of my favourite pieces.

A necklace that I would love to own is this Personalized Sideways Cross Necklace. I love that I would be able to incorporate my children’s names with my religion. You can also choose to replace the cross with a birthstone or celestial symbol. 

Or, instead of needing to stack two necklaces, I also absolutely love the Engraved Family Stacked Circle Necklace. I could even incorporate my husband’s name, and the name of our angel baby.

I would honestly feel so loved and spoiled if Geoffrey ever surprised me with this Personalized Stackable Bar Ring. It is so simplistic and elegant, which is exactly the type of jewelry that I wear.

Each piece is customizable to ensure you get exactly what you are looking for. For instance, with this Promise Ring you are able to choose the material, first and second birthstones, first and second engravings, engravings inside, and of course, ring size.

You may click these links for a more comprehensive list of Name Necklaces and Birthstone Jewelry.

Lastly, right now they are having a Spring Sale where you can get up to 65% off using the code SPRING15. They offer free shipping and returns, with 15% off of your first order when you sign up with your email address. What are you waiting for? Be sure to check them out today!

blankets and babies

Holly's Quilt - 5People have asked me in the past why I have a blog. If nothing else, it has been a great way to meet new and amazing people.

Holly's Quilt - 3In 2014 I wrote about how we could all use a good friend in our lives. The person that I was referring to was Holly from Noisette. She has been such a sweet and genuine presence in my life, albeit in an online and snail mail kind of way. Now, she has even reached out to little Remy! For that, I am so grateful.

Holly's Quilt - 9Holly's Quilt - 7We recently received this beautiful quilt in the mail from Holly. Every square inch of it is just so beautiful. From the colours to the prints, I am in love with every square inch of it. The back of the quilt even has the most whimsical rabbit pattern. Remy’s favourite toys so far have been her plush bunny toys. How she nailed both of our tastes so exquisitely I’ll never know. But it’s absolutely perfect.

Holly's Quilt - 4This is the first quilt that we’ve gotten as a gift. Remy has received the cutest supply of hand sewn blankets from her grandma, swaddling blankets from her Gigi, used blankets from her real aunt and cousins, and a crocheted blanket from her not-so-real aunt (my friend). They are, by far, my favourite gift to receive on her behalf. We always end up using several of them throughout the day. Also, who wouldn’t want to be kept warm and snuggly? I find them to be such a wonderful baby present.

Holly's Quilt - 8Happy Victoria Day, Canadians! Have a magnificent week, everyone. I’ll see you again on Thursday.

burlap tree ornaments diy

Burlap Tree Ornaments - 6The trend for natural and rustic appearing Christmas trees are becoming ever more popular. However, while these types of ornaments may not look as expensive as glass baubles or decorative lights, than can still be quite costly. Making them from scratch, on the other hand, is only consuming with your time. Here is one version of a quick and rustic ornament tutorial that will help you attain that more traditional tree.

Burlap Tree Ornaments - 1What you will need: 

Burlap cloth
Styrofoam balls
Thread
Twine
Needle
Scissors

Burlap Tree Ornaments - 2Steps:

1. Place a foam ball on the burlap cloth. Tentatively wrap the ornament in the cloth until it is completely covered. Cut the material needed to cover one ornament.

2. Place the material that has just been removed on the remaining burlap. Cut out enough sheets of burlap to equal the number of ornaments that you will ultimately have.

Burlap Tree Ornaments - 33. Once enough material has been cut, you may begin sewing your ornaments. Cover one foam ball with the burlap, gathering the excess material at the top. Sew the top shut. Repeat for each ornament.

Burlap Tree Ornaments - 54. Once the burlap is securely sewn, twist the excess burlap and pull it in a downward motion, wrapping it around the top of the ornament so that it resembles the cap on a glass or plastic bauble. Sew it into place.

5. Now that each ornament has a faux cap, one of the last steps is to create a hanging mechanism. Thread the needle through the centre of the top cap so that it makes a loop. Tie a knot so that it stays in place.

Burlap Tree Ornaments - 76. Lastly, tie a piece of twine around the hanging apparatus to finish off the look.

Burlap Tree Ornaments - 8That’s all that is needed to make rustic tree decorations! Only 7 more days until Christmas!
