First Day of Autumn

September 21st, 2017

Tick tock, tick tock…Soon it will be the summer of 2017 that was. When the calendar changes tomorrow, a new season is upon us.

Welcome first day of Autumn!

Although we are still in the throes of summer heat, coloured leaves, fall harvest, crisp air, sweaters, socks, warm drinks, pumpkins, turkey and Halloween are all creeping up!

Summer is officially coming to a close and Autumn 2017 will begin on Friday September 22 when the clock strikes 4:02 PM. That means we are into the third season and all sorts of fun, fall festivities can take place: Raking leaves and then jumping into a pile, fall decorating, celebrating Oktoberfest, attending a fall festival, hiking, getting lost in a corn maze, apple picking, canning fruit, going for a hayride, visiting a pumpkin patch, Trick or Treating and last but not least, remembering what you are thankful for. The Canadian Thanksgiving is on October 9th. We give thanks for the the harvest and the love and support family and friends give.

With all these mentioned, we have so much to look forward to.

What is your favourite Autumn activity?

Pages of a notepad are featured all over the case. It also comes with 5 wash-out fabric mini pens that you can use to doodle with.

Not only is this fun but a practical gift as well. You can doodle a personal design or message before giving.

Back To School

September 6th, 2017

If you headed back to school as an educator yesterday, this one is for you! Remember the days when computers, tablets and cell phones were nonexistent and if they were, no one could afford one. Those days are gone and emojis and the loss of cursive writing is our new reality:) Class

Can you hear the sound of that bell? Believe it or not, Labour Day is a few days away so you know what that means. Rise and shine as the next day is a start to a new year.  Of course, some are excited to head back through those school doors but there are some who have the back to school blues.

First off, The Inflatable Pool Hunk Float is a pool float designed to look like a real hunk… Well, not quite. But this full body pool float is long enough that you can fully lie down on it, and the fact that it resembles the best example of the male species doesn’t hurt either. A tall, dark and handsome pool float!

This mystic creature has been temporarily transformed into a pool float, but don’t worry, all the same enchantment and style is still there. This Giant Unicorn Pool Float is a lot of fun and will make you feel truly majestic as you sit atop its mane. Or something. Truly Magical!

A elegant, beautiful pool float.

 

And finally, the Giant Swan Pool Float floats through with an unmatched elegance that is sure to turn heads. As beautiful as a pool float can ever hope to dream to be. Absolutely astonishing!

Happy 40th Anniversary Star Wars

May 25th, 2017

Can you believe it’s been 40 years since the first Star Wars movie?

“Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday dear Star Wars. Happy Birthday to you!”

“Star Wars: A New Hope—and I’m absolutely certain the comments will explode with people debating whether it is just Star Wars or A New Hope—was released on May 25, 1977 in a hilariously small number of theaters and with George Lucas still doubting that it would be a success. Of course, instead the movie generated the gigantic crowds and lines that it’s stillgenerating 40 years later.” via  Katharine Trendacosta – http://io9.gizmodo.com

 

May the Force be with all aspiring Jedi cooks as Yoda, Darth Vader and R2-D2–shaped cookie cutters can create 30 sweet and savory treats!
