SCRIBBLES QUICK CLIP | Reuniting With My Buddy Bebee

Forget groundhogs, my first sign that spring is around the corner is the appearance of my furry friend Bebee, who joined me outside on Family Day while I had my tea and enjoyed some sunshine.

My squirrel friends were also hanging out, enjoying the peanuts I gave them. Miss Kitty also made a cameo appearance then went back inside, but not before first hissing at me….she is a strange girl.

Here's Bebee "talking" to me, in this Scribbles Quick Clip...

SCRIBBLES QUICK CLIP | Make Your Own Pencil Crayon Organizer


When I recently visited my sister, I noticed her husband (who has joined in the colouring book craze) had separated his pencil crayons into 8 plastic cups. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong about that, when I got home I came up with this idea. 

This takes up minimal space and can hold a lot of pencil crayons. You could also use it for small paint brushes or office supplies. Let your imagination go wild.

SCRIBBLES VIDEO | A Trip to the Beach


Every year I come up with a different theme for my mom's birthday party. This year it was A Trip to the Beach - in direct contrast to the weather outside. 

Ironically, we had to move the party up a day because a few days before hand we got hit with more snow. Not as bad as a few weeks ago, but still enough that we gave the road crews time to clear the way for my guests to get here. 

Join me as I show you, step by step, how I put my beach look together. Who knows, maybe you'll feel inspired to do your own Beach party. We hope so.

VIDEO | Talented 4 Yr Old Sings 'You Gotta a Friend in Me'

We loved this video when we first featured it a while ago and we're featuring it again for those who may have missed it....or just want to enjoy it again. A 4 year old girl sings "You Gotta Friend in Me" with her daddy. It's a cute clip and who can't use a little more cuteness right now?
 

VIDEO | Funny Cats

We did not create this video that features cats doing some weird and funny things, we found it on You Tube and thought it would fit in "purr-fectly" with our cat themed edition. (Yes, we used that purr-fect pun once again, guess that makes us a copy cat.)

We've featured this quote from our pal Pam a few times now, but it's such a good quote, it's worth repeating.

Last Year at This Time

This photo was taken after LAST year’s birthday party for my mom.

Because of lockdown restrictions my family didn’t gather at my place. Only mom was actually here in person. The rest of my family were at their homes but still very much a part of the party.

I had made birthday kits for each person which they received a few days before the party. The kits included balloons, party hats, candies and other goodies.

We did a Zoom call and each location looked similar thanks to the stuff in their birthday kits.

When I presented mom with a colourful birthday cupcake (instead of a cake), I did it on camera so everyone could sing “happy birthday” together.

I always incorporate a game into each party. Last year’s virtual birthday was no exception. I came up with The Birthday Game. Each person had a birthday game sheet and funky pen. I asked 10 birthday related questions, everyone wrote down their answers on their game sheet. Then I revealed the answers. The person with the most correct won a gift card.

This pix is me feeling proud and content that the party was a success…. Both in person and virtually.

Valerie Bertinelli's New Book is More Than Enough

I read Enough Already recently, well technically Valerie Bertinelli read it to me, I opted for the audiobook on Audible.
 
I have always admired Valerie Bertinelli ever since her debut on One Day At A Time. This book gives us a behind the scenes look at her love for Eddie Van Halen and their son Wolfgang. It’s also part self help, with some of Bertinelli’s favourite recipes thrown in for good measure.

The book instantly became a New York Times #1 Best Seller.

Whether you pick an ebook, audiobook or a good ol’ actual physical book, Enough Already is a great read.



Hair's the Truth

A while ago I created a clip that showed me with a shaven head, stating that my sister gave me a major haircut.
 
While it’s true Kim did indeed cut my hair that day, the bald look was a Tik Tok filter. Some of you knew right away that my Kojak look was bogus, but several of you thought it was legit. I had intended to share this secret a few days later, but forgot.
 
Today a good friend messaged me. In her message she mentioned she liked my “new look”. Mother of god, she must be thinking I’m bald now. That’s when I realized I had not come clean about this.
 
I have nothing against the bald look and appreciate that some of you thought I looked good that way, but I still have hair.
 
Here’s a screenshot from my shaved head video clip and a pix taken right now showing my hair. I even glammed up for you…or is this another Tik Tok trick? LOL!!
