5 Halloween DIYs To Try

October 21, 2015 | 5 DIYs To Try

Man, this year is flying. I’m sure I say that every year, but I can’t believe it’s the middle of October already! I got a bit of a wakeup call when I noticed the halloween party fliers go up in our condo lobby… it can’t be halloween time again already?! Well, I guess it can. Eesh.

I thought it might be helpful to pull together a few fantastic, quick DIY’s and printables from around the web to get in the spooky spirit – just in case you’re like us and Halloween just crept up on you this year! Time to get my craft on!

For the first time in years we live in an apartment building with lots of kids, so I might have to craft up some Spook-pops to give the trick-or-treaters :)

Heather’s Story (+ free iPhone wallpapers!)

June 7, 2015 | Freebies, Miscellaneous

Have HopeDid you know that it’s National Cancer Survivors Day today? I had no idea until recently, but really – what a fantastic thing to celebrate! With all the horrible things that come up in the news, doesn’t it feel good to celebrate something as happy and positive as kicking cancer’s butt? I think so.

SO… In honor of National Cancer Survivors Day, I wanted to share Heather Von St. James story. She is a 9-year survivor of a very rare and deadly form of cancer called mesothelioma.

Meet Heather

Heather works tirelessly to spread awareness for this little-known cancer and the dangers of asbestos, so please read more about her and mesothelioma below – or even better, head over to Heather’s website to learn more, lend your support, and to watch a very touching video of Heather and her family.

THEN, because we all love free stuff (right?!), I’ve created some new iPhone wallpapers in honour of National Cancer Survivors Day – yay! They’ll be available at the end of the post :)

Mesothelioma is a rare and deadly form of cancer, caused by exposure to asbestos – a building material used in the 70’s and 80’s. It has since become known for being potentially lethal if the dust is inhaled (and thankfully has been banned in Australia for quite a few years now) however in the US and Canada it’s still used in some building materials (!!).

Heather’s Story
Heather was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2005, after having inhaled asbestos dust from her Father’s work jacket when she was a child. It’s a very agressive form of cancer, and will normally take a person’s life within the first year of diagnosis. Incredibly, Heather had her left lung removed in order to save her life, and has now been cancer-free for 9 years! Amazing :)

While I was watching the video on Heather’s website, I noticed that she talks a lot about hope, and says that “with hope, the odds don’t matter”, which I thought was a lovely sentiment. So, in honour of Heather, and of all the amazing cancer survivors out there I’ve created 4 free “Hope” iPhone wallpapers for you to download.

If you do download and use them, be sure to send a thought to all the brave people out there who have beaten this awful disease :)
