Framing Magic

Mother's day is an opportunity to give a gift from the heart.  If you  are a DIY enthusiast then you will love our new found love with Wordle.  Worlde is a toy for generating 'word clouds'.  You can customize your clouds with different fonts, layouts and colour schemes.  Best of all, you can create your own mother inspired works of art.  Easy as 1,2,3....

For the Love of Cooking

Does your mum love cooking?  Celebrity Chef Lynn Crawford recently made a guest appearance at our GTA Home Show and also showcased her cook book  'At Home with Lynn Crawford, 200 of My Favourite Easy Recipes'.  The cookbook  is packed with fabulous recipes and plenty of inspiring photos with each recipe looking oh-so delicious makes it a great gift for Mom.  The only thing better than getting a copy for Mother’s Day would be making something from the book ahead of time and giving your mom a delicious surprise.
