Giving myself "permission to fail" has been incredibly liberating!
I LOVE CreativeBug and have been watching their series called CreativeBug Fabric Design. There is an incredibly powerful quote I believe from Lizzy House who says, "I give you permission to fail." When I heard it, it was like...

Turned art into graphic art!
I struggled so hard with what to do with my fabric and crochet collage that I finally made a breakthrough! I decided to recreate it as a graphic: I took many of the same elements and drew them into a new graphic. Now I have ...

When I heard a pomelo was like a grapefruit on steroids, I had to try it!

It still totally freaks me out that this brownie recipe calls for boiling water to be poured onto chocolate: http://www.suziethefoodie.com/anna-olsons-chocolate-brownies/

Buying a used appliance is always a risk so was it worth it to spend $6.99 on this portable stovetop?

I had no idea I was being haunted by a poetic bitch of a gremlin: http://suzieridler.blogspot.ca/2015/04/bite-me-oh-poetic-one.html
I have been having a lot of internal struggles lately. Questioning what I am doing. Am I good enough? Plagued with nightmares about ending up homeless. That one is getting really old. I decided to take some gremlins head on w...

I tell the tale of The Storm Crow Tavern and wonder if she was real at all!

I knew immediately as soon as I moved into the neighbourhood I wanted to shop at Calabria. The owners are so friendly, informative and helpful. I love that they have veal bacon for those who do not eat pork. The front of the store is charming with a bicycle in the window and a freezer for you to go through and pick out your pot pie for dinner. I have been several times now and pick up goat cheese, Scotch eggs, pot pies and even tried their bread pudding. Food tends to be on the less salty side which a lot of people will appreciate. The butcher told me he makes his pot pie crusts with butter, no shortening. Love it.

This flea market was not what I expected. It only costs $25 per table and I was expecting all sorts of people to sort of have their own indoor flea market but instead, these were business with tables and clearly, they have been there for a while. Now there were some real fun spots like the geeky comic book place. But overall it was more like a marketplace than a flea market to me. The vintage kitchen wares spots were very cool to visit but it was clear, they knew that these were treasures and the prices reflected that reality. Old DVDs, cell phone covers, newish purses… That is the kind of stuff that was everywhere at the Vancouver Flea Market. I found ZERO furniture which was a bummer. There were some bikes and lamps but no furniture. Overall, I was not super impressed with Vancouver Flea Market. Now I know my expectations were high but I love thrifting. This? Was all business.

Every night is a different kind of gaming and we showed up to try out Betrayal At House On The Hill for board game night. There is a very large seating area at the back with tons of tables for lots of gaming and has this cool panel on the wall, as well as posters. I played the character Madame Zostra. I had never played this game before and was a little intimidated but the staff at the store played with us so we could figure it out and have tons of fun too. Players Wanted Games & Collectibles was the perfect place to give it a shot and I can not wait to go back and learn about other games. Merchandise selection is excellent. My husband is going to spend a lot of money here! LOL.

When we were moving from Lower Sackville to Vancouver, there were several days we needed to stay in a hotel while the move was happening. It was a perfect location for us! Right between our house and Halifax, overlooking the Bedford Basin. They even have an indoor swimming pool! (You could smell chlorine in the hallways of the first floor). Plus a cute deck for those who want to take a break outside. It was the most vacation-y place we stayed the entire time we were travelling this year. I loved it. A very lovely modern room that thankfully had two beds. It was a lovely room but our view was of the parking lot. No big deal. We just needed a comfortable place to stay while our lives were being moved to the other side of the country. Give me quiet and TV and I am good. This Comfort Inn had the best complimentary continental breakfast I have ever had! Hot cooked food, lots of treats you could toast up and get this! They had waffle batter ready-to-go and a waffle maker!!! I never had time to make my own but that was the coolest. The food was amazing and they helped make us feel like we were on vacation, not in the middle of a very challenging and emotional move.
