DecoArt Galaxy Glitter helps us add sparkle to our projects without making a big glitter mess. I like these brush on glitter acrylic to add shimmer and shine to our projects and home décor accents. I enjoyed doing this painting on canvas with a variety of different acrylic colours and galaxy glitter acrylic paint.

Debra Valencia, pattern artist and author of the book Embroidered Lettering: Techniques and Alphabets for Creating 25 Expressive Projects, says, "One reason hand stitching lettering and inspirational phrases have become so popular is because it helps soothe people in today's high-stress environment." This book has unique embroidery lettering projects that feature heartfelt sentiments and witty statements. I replicated a design from this book for a cushion cover.

We visited the Museum of Illusions for the first time last winter, and enjoyed our recent visit as well. It is fun for everyone in the family to enter the world of illusions and think critically and logically about what our eyes are seeing which our minds will have trouble believing.
We loved watching Toy Story 4! Watching it on 4DX was extra thrilling and totally recommend this movie on 4DX. Everyone in the family will enjoy the amazing experience of the 4DX perfectly in sync with the humour, action, adventure and the creepy scenes of the movie. There was a lot of fabulous motion and action throughout the movie, never a dull moment.

Going to the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-lake would make a memorable weekend getaway or a day trip. Every year there is a show that is perfect for families with young children and teenagers. This year it is The Horse and His Boy based on C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia. Last year, we watched the Magician's Nephew also based on the children's fantasy novel Narnia. My children have read the novels and watched a few of the movies, they were excited to see how the story would be acted on stage.
