Color Your World with EXPO and Sharpie

EXPO and Sharpie

EXPO and Sharpie

EXPO Dry Erase Markers and all things Sharpie have been a staple in our home for many years. Some are used for fun while others have more of a function to perform. If you have someone on your list who is an organizational guru or loves to draw and color – like me, think Expo and Sharpie! Personally, I love seeing Sharpie’s and Expo markers in my stocking. I am always using them so I tend to run out quickly.

Anne of Green Gables – A Graphic Novel

Anne of Green Gables:
A Graphic Novel
Anne Like You’ve Never Seen Her Before


As a Canadian, Anne of Green Gables is part of my childhood. The books, and especially the 1985 mini series starring Megan Follows, are a huge part of who I am today. I spent countless hours watching poorly recorded versions of Anne, that I had recorded on my VCR, until the VHS tape had enough and would break. Oh how I loved Anne, how I wanted to BE Anne. Everything about her was wonderful and magical and exciting. She was like a sister, and best friend, wrapped into one. Although I’m in my 40s now, I still enjoy watching those mini-series from the 80s, and I can read the books over and over and over (and I have).

SKECHERS – Give the Gift of Comfort this Season


Comfortable, Stylish & Durable


When I’m looking for shoes for my boys, I’m looking for shoes that are durable. I want a shoe that is going to last either the year or until their next growth spurt, whichever comes first. I made the mistake of buying shoes that were less than last spring, and before summer even arrived they had shoes that were falling apart and needed replacing much earlier than I was expecting. I also want a shoe with a good fit, that will allow a little bit of room for growth (because I don’t want to have to replace shoes every three months).
