He Knows if You've Been Bad or Good - PNP

At this time of year a lot of us can get away with reminding our kids that "he" is watching.  But how much fun would it be for the kids to actually get to hear from the man in red himself?!?




The Portable North Pole is a fun way to bring the magic home.  Your kids can receive a FREE personalized video from Santa.  You can upload 2 photos and include a gift that is on your child's Santa List.  These videos are so quick to make and my kids LOVE having Santa talk directly to them.




There are great features on the site including:


  • Stories you can read with your children
  • Behind the scenes information about Santa, the reindeer and the elves
  • Colouring pages
  • Additional general videos from Santa

You can upgrade to a Premium version.  The Premium option is great for families with more than one child because it offers 3 different storylines and additional options to upload more photos and personalize the video even more. This means your kids can each have a slightly different message from Santa.  The Premium video is longer than the free version and has extra scenes from Santa's Village.  A portion of the cost of the Premium video goes to a Children's Hospital in your area.  That's a win/win!

I've got a coupon for my Creative Mama Readers to save 20% off any paid products you upgrade to at the Portable North Pole.  Use promotional code BLG20BKP.

These are honestly so easy and fast to make and the kids just LOVE them.
I hope you all have a magical Christmas!

Black Friday Deals & Giving Back at the Body Shop

I love a good deal, I love giving back, I love giving people and hand-up and I love the Body Shop.

On Black Friday (that's this Friday), stop by your local Body Shop and pick up The Body Shop's tote bag filled with 8 customer favourites for only $30 (worth $120).  



The Tote contains:
  • The Body Shop Shea Body Butter
  • Strawberry Shower Gel
  • Vitamin E Moisture Cream
  • Camomile Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
  • Satsuma Body Polish
  • Satsuma Body Sorbet
  • Hemp Hand Protector 
  • A Bath Lily
What is great about this is that you can keep the tote or give it as a gift.  You can keep some of the products or group a few together for a great teacher or hostess gift.  This saves you money but it does something even better!

What makes this an extra awesome purchase is that The Body Shop Community Fair Trade partner, Teddy Exports, in India has produced the tote bags this year. Teddy Exports employs 70% female workers and provides them with a safe and friendly work environment. They also provide childcare and education for their children. Pretty awesome!

The Black Friday tote being made in India with the help of 2 employees from The Body Shop. 


Hurry in though. The tote bag is only available while supplies last. Race you there!

#Win a Family Pass to "It's a Wonderful Life" at #Cineplex

It IS a wonderful life and it is wonderful to be able to share this classic film with your family.  I love watching old holiday classics.  This is a tradition with my dad.  So whether your family is you, a spouse and your kids, or you and 3 of your closest friends it doesn't matter.  The holidays are about spending time with those you love.



I have 2 sets of 4-passes to see a screening of "It's a Wonderful Life" at any Cineplex theatre across Canada.  The movie is playing December 20th, 22nd, and 24th.  You can pick which date to attend.

Go back in time with Donna Reed, Henry Travers, James Stewart, Lionel Barrymore and Thomas Mitchell as they light up this film.  Enjoy remembering the first time you saw this angel help the compassionate but despairingly frustrated businessman by showing what life would have been like if he never existed.  A true holiday classic!
