Valentine's Day is around the corner!

So, I had originally decided to not do anything for Valentine's day unless it was requested by a customer. Having some personal things happening and knowing that Valentine's day isn't a huge market when it comes to little ones I was going to shift my focus on Easter. However, I just couldn't resist putting together a few items for this special day! Here's a photo of a few items currently available.

If your still looking for that perfect something for your little for the day of love - be sure to check out our FB page for details to purchase.

T&J Studios Photography is located just outside of Alma, about 30-40 minutes from Guelph or Waterloo. I am a full-time mom and a part/full-time photographer (depending on my schedule at the time!).

I even have them thinking and talking like me!

T&J Studios Photography has been operating since October of 2010 but came into full swing this past year. I have had the opportunity to be a part of so many families' moments. It's such an honour to work with each and every one of them!

I would love to be a part of your life experiences so you can remember those moments forever!

Bottle Caps, zipper pulls, bracelets and more! Kahn Kidz

Another one of my friends who was kind enough to help out by donating some awesome items to the Auction for Tracy.

Check out Lisa's amazing work through her company Kahn Kidz.

I started Kahn Kidz actually as hobby.  The very talented Mandi from Shelby Styles was making cute bottlecap corkers for my daughter.  I thought it would be relaxing to produce the caps and use as a creative outlet.  Well my little hobby that started because of Mandi has snow balled and we continue to grow.  I make bottlecaps for hair clips, bookmarks, magnets and zipper pulls.  Kahn Kidz is just launching into kids jewlery inspired by my daughter Avery.  Check us out on facebook or email me at

Usborne - Heidi McNeil

 Our *Auction for Tracy* feature vendor is Heidi McNeil, a local Usborne rep. My kids have some of these books and not only are they fun and colourful, but educational too! A hit for children of any age. Thank you Heidi!

I'm so excited to share Usborne Books with you! I've been with the company for close to 3 year and I love their books and I love watching my kids read their books! The company is based out of the UK but has been in Canada close to 20 years and was named Children's Publisher of the Year 2012. They specialize in high quality and educational books for children from babies to teens and with over 1500 books in the English catalogue, there is truly something for everyone! Whether it's a touchy feely board book, an internet linked resource book, a drawing and doodling book or one of our many readers or novels there is something for even the most reluctant readers!

I'd first like to say a BIG thank you to all the vendors, bidders and support that tickled in! I am just collecting the little bit of the funds, but the grand total was just over $600. Amazing!!
