Staff Pick!

Hello lovely friends!

It’s a busy Friday here in the studio as we’re getting doll parts ready for the sewing mama’s, making noses, building boxes and writing out our ‘Thank you’s’ πŸ™‚ Our sweet Rachel isn’t here on Thursday’s so often misses out on our Staff Pick blog, so we waited a day and she finally gets her pick! This week Rachel chose ‘Lilias’, the gorgeous ginger-haired lass with locks hand-spun by our talented Whippletree neighbour Leola.

A Cool treat to beat the Summer heat

Hello Everyone!

In my house, we try our best to avoid refined sugars and artificial flavours/colours. Come summer time, when the kids want an ice cold beverage, running to the store and grabbing what we call a Slurpee would be a quick fix. But I’ve discovered a quicker, easier and healthier way of doing this! We have a wonderful local company called Organic Fair. They have an amazing selection of soda Syrups! The root beer syrup seems to be the favourite of our household, but for myself, I’m loving the new Chocolate Syrup they’ve just come out with. That makes this momma very happy πŸ˜‰

To make our homemade Slurpee’s, this is what I do:

I grab 1 tray of ice out of the freezer, place it in the blender, add about 1/2 cup of water and 2 tbsp of Syrup. I blend it all together and voila, instant, organic all natural iced drink!!

We also make our own snow cones in a similar fashion. We crush the ice on it’s own in the blender, pour the ice into cups, and then the kids can add multiple favours to their cups of ice!

Hope you all are enjoying your summer! We’ve had an incredible summer on the island so far!

Rachel, thank you SO much for sharing about this company! Save-On in Vic carries their line and I have eyed it but never had time to read the label. I love the thought of being able to give our kids a treat that isn’t laced with refined sugar or nasties. We don’t buy pop or Slurpees normally so I know this would be a huge hit with them for a surprise. I’ll definitely be buying some on my next shop so we can make slurpees after school sometime soon!

You have sun?? We’re not far away, and still have dark, stormy skies!

It’s been peaking out of the clouds on and off, maybe it’s heading your way!
