Horace and Co. were kind enough to send Kate a sweet, personalized book this month. It's a book about a little Hamster that must face her fear of unknown foods at a picnic. For kids with autism, this is a common theme. If you're a regular reader of this blog, it will be no surprise to you that Kate has some pretty next level food aversion. She has about ten foods that she will eat at the moment, and most other things are off limits completely. These personalized books help kids like Kate by allowing them to relate to the story about the character sharing their name and their particular issue.
These are the sweetest little social stories, and kids get a real kick out of seeing their name in print. You can choose from a story about a Hamster's Disgusting Picnic (which was perfect for our Kate), a Wibbly-Wobbly Dinosaur or a Robot that likes to be alone.
Have you guys heard of Etchr yet? It’s this really high end company that creates these amazing artist bags and accessories. I was lucky enough to recently receive the Etchr artist bag and accompanying field case and I’m hooked. I’ve piled everything I need to art out in the world into the bag (which has so much room) and I’ve packed some of my favourite pens and markers in the field case and I’m ready to art anywhere, anytime.
This bag is so versatile it can be set-up as a messenger bag, a backpack and a standing easel.
I’m so grateful that this kick ass company let me try their amazing bags. Etchr, you just secured a customer for life.
As a wannabe artist I’ve tried just about every artist subscription box out there. Paletteful Packs has come out as a strong favourite. I’m fairly sure a proper artist curated these boxes because they are full of high-end art supplies. I adored mine. I’ve been creating non-stop and if you follow my Instagram, you already know that. Give Palletful Packs some love and tell them I sent you.
Guys! I’ve finally found the greatest weighted blanket out there and it only took me six years! Until now I really believed you had to make your own but Harkla has done it. These gorgeous blankets are so well-made and soft. And to make things easier their website is full of all the information you need to choose one for your child or yourself.
I feel great sharing the info about this great company with you.
I've been wanting a family ring for a very long time, but it's been difficult to find a unique piece of jewelry that speaks to me. I knew I wanted to support an artist, and I knew I wanted it to be made in Canada, so I started searching and look what I found!
I became obsessed with artisianimpact and searched their Etsy shop at length looking for the perfect ring.
I found it in this gorgeous gold and silver gemstone ring. I love that I won't be seeing this gorgeous piece on anyone else's finger.
Guys! Have you heard of Paperless Post?
I'll admit, I love stationary. I love the feel of it, I love sending it and receiving it in the actual mailbox, but Paperless Post has opened my eyes to a new world of online stationary, and I love it.
The website is actually a pretty neat process, in that you get tokens and spend them on your projects.

Have you read Elan Mastai's All Our Wrong Todays?
When the kind folks at Penguin sent this novel to me for review, I wasn't sure what to expect but when I read the words '"Black Mirror" meets "Altered Carbon"', I was in.
I read it in a weekend, as one does, with just enough negligence of household duties to make it ideal.
You know, sometimes I want to be a writer, and then I read an author's debut like this, and I think, nah, I'll stick to what I'm good at. I'm just still trying to figure that out. :)
National Service Dog Oakley was treated to the subscription box pupjoy this week and I think you can imagine how pleased he was. His favorite treat, inside the giant box of FULL SIZE items was the bone pictured here, which we filled with peanut butter and treats from the box. Now just look at that good boy waiting for his command to go to town on that bone. Fear not, I gave him the go ahead as soon as I snapped this picture and he savoured every last second of his treat.
We are definitely huge fans of pupjoy (and so is Oakley). He's one of the most important parts of our family and he deserves a monthly surprise. If you're considering treating your pal check out our friends at pupjoy first.
LaPapierre is the perfect spot for stationery addicts like me. Check out their Etsy shop for a quick fix or spread out that gratification with their stationery subscription.
I just adore these designs. The folks at La Papierre have my heart with their sweet Llama stationery and don't get me started with the Harry Potter line!
A mom like you.
