Making Businesses More Professional With #IDCreator

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
For those of you who read my blog on a regular basis, you would know that it's my dream to have a home daycare. I was in the process of starting one, and was shut down before it even took off. Because I didn't own the property that it was located on, my landlord threatened for me to close it down. I pretty much just put it on hold until I move into my condo, which is currently being built, and looking forward to that day when I get to move in... which is expected to be this coming November.

With that said, it's very important to have everyone who comes in contact with your children, to be identified prior to accepting them into the daycare. Introducing new clients to everyone in the home is very important to me, especially family members that plan on helping (mom and grandma). One way to help identify a possible worker, would be for them to wear a name tag and/or ID. I was contacted by the company ID Creator to test out their product, and the first thing that came to mind was creating one for my upcoming daycare!

Happy Victoria Day!

My work face!
Today is Victoria Day here in Canada, and I'm having fun at work. Okay, not exactly having fun, but the pay cheque of working it will be fun. For those of you who don't know what Victoria Day is, it's a Canadian statutory holiday celebrated on the Monday preceding May 25 in every province and territory. It honours Queen Victoria's birthday.

Victoria Day is also commonly referred to as the "May two-four weekend" or the "May long weekend" and it marks the unofficial start of the cottage season where cases of beer* are consumed by hard working Canadians. Or maybe it's called May two-four because May 24, 1819 is Queen Victoria's birthday :-)

Personalized Beer Glasses Make For An Awesome Father's Day or Groomsmen Gift #weddingparty

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Spring has sprung and Mother's Day is long gone, which means Father's Day is around the corner. This will be the first year that my little monkey Brianna will be celebrating it with her daddy, and she seems to be super excited! Okay, maybe it's me that's a bit excited... but she did LOVE playing with the packaging for daddy's gift! What do you buy a guy who has pretty much everything? If you're tired of the usual shirt, sweater, tie, type of gifts, why not go for something that can be personalized? I was fortunate to review some Personalized Pub Glasses from Urban Farmhouse Tampa, in which will be used as a Father's Day gift next month. The company sells their beautiful creations on Etsy, which specialize in memorable keepsakes for life!
