Holiday Colouring House
- Well, this is way less messy! LOL! I adore this cookie colouring house by Sweetness! The package comes with all the stuff to put the house together, a gingerbread man and tree cookie, as well as edible ink markers for you and your little ones to colour away! If you’re like me you’ll get one for your kid and one for yourself. 🙂 Shop them here.
- My friends at Made Social are hosting a Chunky Knit Wreath-making soiree! The workshop party is on Wednesday, December 11 at Plum Home and The Foundry Room in the Oliver Exchange Building (12021 102 Ave). Secure your spot here.
- Alberta Ballet’s The Nutcracker runs next Wednesday, December 4-Sunday at The Jube. I will be reading during StoryTime before the matinee performance on Sunday, December 8. I would love to see you there! Get tickets and showtimes here.
- This is the greatest massage I’ve ever had. I’ve been going to Soul to Sole Massage Therapy and Wellness Studio and without trying to sound too dramatic, it’s changed my life! They focus on therapy and healing your body as well as the relaxation and zen that comes with getting a massage. They offer a variety – sports massages, deep tissue, prenatal, and more. You can check them out at their downtown or southside location. All the details here.
