I was inspired by the Paper Craft DK book to do this detailed papercut lantern project. This book has 50 fun and exciting projects that involves card making, gift wrapping, scrapbooking, and beautiful paper flowers. I love that the book includes templates that we can use to recreate the projects. I used the template for lanterns from this book, and scanned it on my Brother ScanNCut machine, which cut this intricate lantern design for me within minutes.

I have been attending We Day for the past four years, and every year I feel We Day inspires me to do more to help others. My daughter has been accompanying me for the past few years. She loves the shows and the inspiring speeches at We Day, and was excited for weeks before we went and also after the event. I love seeing the passion and excitement of We Day where everyone like-minded gathers to show that we can all spark a change and make a difference everyday to better someone else's life. Thinking of WE is so much satisfying than thinking of ME. We love how We Day empowers people to make a difference, and think about others.

My children enjoyed having a viewing party at home to watch Barbie in Rock 'N Royals. I love how Barbie movies encourage children to embrace the differences, to be themselves, and dream big. In this upbeat musical, Barbie stars as Princess Courtney, a modern princess whose world is turned upside down when she switches places with Erika, a famous rock star.

I love getting inspiration for crafts from colourful books. The DK Craft Boutique has lots of fabulous books that are inspiring to get us started. Since I love to do a variety of different crafts and always challenge myself to learn new one, I enjoy books that are easy to follow with step-by-step pictures and instructions. I also encourage my children to not only use their imagination to be creative, but also be observant on the variety of different material that they can incorporate for their arts and craft projects.
Get ready for Disney Princess magic with Sofia the First and her friends in Dear Sofia: A Royal Collection, which is on DVD. My children enjoyed the adventure-filled episodes guest-starring Jasmine, Mulan, Belle, and Tiana, as well as the two additional episodes highlighting the qualities that make a true princess: honesty, loyalty, compassion, and grace. This brand new DVD comes with a Sophia Themed Stationary Kit, that my daughter loves as she can write a letter to Sofia and receive a response back in the mail.

My family and I checked out a variety of Evolution of smooth or eos products that are made in the USA. I like how the eos shave cream brightens and evens the skin tone. The natural shea butter and vitamin B3 in the shave cream nourishes and softens the skin.

Everyone that loves to do paper crafts, sew or quilt will love having this fabulous ScanNCut device from Brother. Once I started using this device, I wondered what I did without it! This is the world's first home and hobby cutting machine with a built-in scanner. I love all the creative possibilities that we can do with the Brother ScanNCut.
