DIY Homemade Adjustable Fabric Dog Collar Tutorial

DIY Adjustable Dog Collar Tutorial

I am beyond excited to finally be sharing this DIY with you. It combines three of my biggest passions: dogs, sewing and my favourite fabric store ever.

Sometimes DIY projects are a way of making something you might not otherwise be able to (easily) find. Sometimes they’re a way to get what you want for cheaper. Sometimes, if you’re lucky, you’ll find a project idea that gives you both. This is one of those ideas.  Continue reading

Belchers Marsh Park Makes it Easy to Get Your Daily Dose of Nature

Every summer, we say we’re going to do more camping. And every summer, we end up being way too busy. Summer busy is a great kind of busy, don’t get me wrong.

It’s the End of Summer. But that Means… Fall Hikes!

And just like that, it’s September. This time of year used to be huge for me. The transition from August to September always meant back to school: new things, new faces, new beginnings. I just loved it. This excitement continued through my seven years of university, but when I entered the “real world”, August started slip into September unceremoniously.

This year, I get to feel the excitement all over again. I return to work the day after Labour Day, and although I am returning to an old job, it feels like a new beginning.

I also get to take some time to reflect on what was a really, really awesome summer. Continue reading
