Anyone with kids in their lives knows the value of blowing bubbles. It's one of the cheapest, simplest, most amusing and fun activities for kids. There are bubble wands big and small, bubble machines, glitter bubbles, scented bubbles, coloured bubbles... I'm sure I could go on for another paragraph on all the kinds of bubbles! But how about, Jell-O Bubbles!?
Jell-O comes in so many amazingly fun colours and flavours with scents to match. Let's use it to give those homemade bubbles a boost!

I found this really cheap (and cheap looking), plastic globe of our beloved planet at the dollar store. It was the last one, half broken and all mine.
I had been looking for a globe to remake and give new life, this was the perfect size for one of my ideas.
This project really doesn't warrant a step by step tutorial. It's fairly straight forward, or at least I would hope so! But I will share a few tips and other ideas for you to remake a globe of your own!

A very happy Victoria Day to my fellow Canadians! I'm sure as this post goes live, I'll be watching fireworks light up the sky, with a sparkler in hand!
We've had some great weather the past few days which has been amazing considering the May long weekend for us normally signifies the perfect time to plant the garden. You bet we got our hands dirty this weekend and I'm happy to say, the gardens are all done. Woo!
I was super excited that I finally finished up the solar chandelier for my deck this past week. Easy and inexpensive! I might even take it camping for over the picnic table. Last week also saw a tasty guest post from Emily over at Love, Pasta and a Tool Belt. Be sure to check out her chicken and broccoli phyllo bake.
This post brought to you by Royal Building Products. All opinions are 100% mine.
My husband and I have known for a couple years that the exterior of our home is due for some upgrading. Each year we stand outside of our home and try to figure out what to do and what look we want. This leads to us procrastinating another year because of how overwhelming it can be! Windows, vinyl siding, roofing etc. It seems like and endless selection of styles and colours. How is it all going to look when it comes together?
It allows you to upload an image of your own home and change the vinyl siding, roof, windows and sliding doors with a vast array of styles and colours. Perfect! If you don't want to use an image of your own home, you can select from one of the stock home images to experiment with as well. You can see in the image above how I've started changing the siding colour from red, to blue. You can change a single section, or apply it to the entire home, allowing you a lot of freedom in choosing exactly how you want it to look.
You can save your finished masterpiece and access it at a later time, print it, and with a click of a button, find distributors for the products you chose in your area. Map, business names and contacts all provided. Amazing!
Royal Building Products has been in business for over 40 years and has a commitment to maintaining customer relationships which has in turn built a loyal following.
