Taking Time Off

Though it has been ages since I last wrote a post here I want to make sure that I take a moment to let anyone who should miraculously come to this blog and let them know that I am taking time off from using this blog to write about my life and the goings on of my family and the crazy things that go through my head.

I will still write in my other blog and all are welcome to stop by (you never know when a great deal is on at

cheers and ciao

There is much to do today, and though I know this, I am not feeling stressed or overwhelmed. In fact I am pretty relaxed and very happy because I finally have most of my family with me for Christmas.

I have always loved Christmas, I love getting together with family, having a huge meal at 1am on Christmas Eve right after we open our presents and staying up until 4am. I love it and for a very long time our family had been apart at Christmas.

With that said, I will have to sign off and tackle the kitchen and get things ready for the preparation of the turkey.

I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2009!

I can't believe how long it has been since I posted here. Time sure is going by incredibly fast, November is a blur to me and I am trying to get things in order for the madness that will be December.

I finally have time to breathe and relax after the three trade shows that I did this fall. They where a great deal of work to put together, but I really enjoyed myself at all three of them. I have to say that I really enjoyed the Today's Parent BabyTime Show, I was a little worried about it because I had never done a big trade show before, but it was a great deal of fun and we got to meet really great people. I was fortunate to have Sara Bingham from Wee Hands as my neighbour. She is a really cool person. I also got a chance to stop by my fellow friend exhibitors to say hi and chat a little. A fun and exhausting weekend.

Needless to say my house looked like a toy bomb exploded in it. I had boxes everywhere, it took me an entire Saturday transporting boxes from my place to the storage area and taking stock of things. I was so happy when it was done and the threat of being crushed by toys was gone. To be honest I wanted to cry from the joy of being able to see my floors again.

Isa was amazing through out this time, she spent two whole weekends with my mother and you can well imagine that she had a blast. I was so grateful that she was able to help because we had no one else who could do it.

One very exciting thing that happened at the Healthy Kids Expo is that we discovered this really cool guy named Hans who makes these beautiful wooden blocks. His company is called Ukoonto and he makes the blocks from his home in St. Catharines. You can check out the blog to read more about them.

We were able to introduce them at the Children's Trunk Show and the BabyTime show and the kids just loved them. To be honest both Frank and I had fun playing with them. Hans was able to stop by on Friday at both shows and be there to promote his toys. We are very excited to finally be able to offer a Canadian Made toy.

Well, enough for today...hopefully I will get myself in order and upload the pictures I took at the shows.

Thursday, October 30, 2008 in the Media!

I just had to share the exciting news....we have our first magazine coverage. Two of our fun and vibrant grasping/teething toys are in the What's New section of the November/December Calgary's Child magazine.

They are featuring the Tiny Love Andy Apple and the all new Manhattan Toy Winkel (Citrus Burst). Both are great toys to help young babies develop their fine motor skill, hand-eye-coordination and to sooth them during the uncomfortable teething period.

The great news does not stop there, we are having a contest...Register and WIN a $150 shopping spree at The contest is open until the end of November, so stop by and register for your chance to cross your toy purchases off your holiday gift list!
