Picnic Basket & 8 Disc Anne of Green Gables Collection

Fall is a great time to spend time outdoors and to also enjoy a quiet night in! This bundle is perfect for that! Enjoy a picnic with the stylish, yet practical Picnic Basket set and kick back and relax with all four Anne films! This wonderful family oriented set would be a great Christmas gift. LM. Montgomery‘s stories of the young orphaned girl with the fiery red hair are timeless classics. I fell in love with Anne Shirley when I was about 8 years old. I believe that Kevin Sullivan did an amazing job of bringing the Anne of Green Gables books life. Anne of Green Gables is sure to delight the minds, hearts and imagination of many young girls for years to come.

Posterjack – Personalized Photo Gifts


Personalized Gifts for Christmas


My husband is one of the hardest people in my life to shop for. I’m not sure if it is just a man-thing, or if it is just a Chris-thing, but coming up with the perfect gift is beyond challenging.

I began teaching myself to use Photoshop to enhance my pictures, and after finding a list of the best Photoshop plugins I think I have finally nailed it – so now I can use my pictures to my advantage to give as gifts! In past years I have given Chris such things as calendars, canvases, photo posters, and even a collage photo blanket full of favourite pictures of the boys when they were younger.

Turn Your Cherished Photo(s) into Interactive Keepsakes


Every year I like to buy something that is personalized with photos of the kids. A custom designed photo book, a calendar, a canvas or gallery style framed photo, a photo blanket, etc. We have a wide variety of items in the house that have been personalized with our favourite photos of the boys, but something we didn’t have was a custom designed puzzle! Puzzlesprints fixed that and now I can include a fun and interactive puzzle onto our games shelf.
