Jem Moment: Featured And Friended

It’s been a little while since I’ve had a Jem Moment but now it’s a two in one πŸ˜‰

Not only did my Polaroid display get featured on, check that out here!

But we also got to pick up my good friend Zoe 😁

She will be staying with us for a few weeks so look for some adventurous tales coming up πŸ˜‰

A huge thank you to Surely Simple for finding me and showing off my projectπŸ’•

Also, thank you Zoe for spending your time and money on coming to chill with Mike and I πŸ˜‰

During our stay in Canada I seen a little Polaroid display that I liked but as I said, it was little.

I wanted to be able to display more than just a couple photos  at a time, so I kept it in mind to attempt making myself, once we got back to Holland.

Mike and I picked up the supplies and then when he was away for the day, I decided it was time to recreate/slightly upgrade the design I’d seen😁



Items needed


β€’ 9 Binder clips in preferred metal/color
β€’ Wooden board, I used 27cm x 38cm
β€’ Self adhesive wallpaper/Drawer Liner
β€’ Scissors
β€’ Strong double-sided tape
β€’ Duck tape or masking tape

(Size and binder clip number vary depending on personal preference.)


Thanks to my good friend Mel I already had the lovely gold binder clips πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

I’m sure you could find them at a number of places that sell home/office goods or at a craft store.

I love marble and marble look things so that of course was the drawer liner I chose, rather than leaving it plain.

If wallpaper/liner isn’t your thing, there are many other options like staining the wood, painting it or leaving it plain etc. Continue reading “DIY Polaroid Display πŸ“·βœ‚οΈπŸ’•”

An Ouchy Day

Thursday Dec 29th –




Mother was busy making bunny and bear pancakes when Mike and I woke up but Mike got circle ones, which he deemed soccer balls 😏

Pro bestowed gifts upon us and I couldn’t be more pleased with all my new Polaroid accessories and my coffee cup πŸ˜πŸ’•



Josh and Mike left to go get some things in town, take Dad something in the bush, get out of the house, get a Tim’s etc. 😏

For the ones left at the house… it was an interesting day 😜

Children really shouldn’t learn how to walk when they are so… damageable.

Bryn fell down the flight of stairs to the basement and got a rug burn on her face.
Alaina was sitting, doing nothing, and she fell off the chair.
Bryn slipped on a block and hit her head on the side table.
Spencer just fell face first off his chair and cut his top lip.

And those are only the very memorable mishaps.

Alaina deemed it, ‘an ouchy day’ πŸ˜‹πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Most of the day was spent child rearing and catching up on this and that since we (Mom, Pro and I) were all together to talk and it wasn’t one of having to relay what the other had told them during a phone call days or even weeks before πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ“ž Continue reading “An Ouchy Day”
