What to Do on Family Day 2014:

 

It’s a new year, so why not try to check some of those resolutions off your list early?  Now that Valentine’s Day has come and gone, it’s time to say goodbye to the babysitter and welcome back your kids just in time for Family Day!  If you are running low on ideas here are a few suggestions about what to do with your loved ones.

Rock Climbing:

I recently tried rock climbing for the first time last month and I was surprised to see how quickly the time passed by.  My first experience was at Climbers Rock in Burlington (located on across from Appleby Go Station).  This gym has specific walls and colour legends for different levels of expertise and a separate wall for children. Indoor climbing walls are challenging and fun for the whole family.  It is exercise your kids will enjoy!

http://www.climbersrock.com/

Crafts:

For those of you who are homebodies during this cold winter weather, there are still plenty of activities that you can complete with your little ones.  Crafts are a great way to tap into creativity and make really neat art that you can keep forever.  I love finding crafts around my house that I made as a child; it brings back so many memories. Try creating some with your kids by making clay bugs or duck tape flowers.

Clay Bugs:

With the steps provided in the link below, you can learn to make a fly, a lady bug, and a caterpillar, or if you feel inspired you and the kids can make your own critters.  This craft is easy and it even makes bugs look cute instead of scary!

Duck Tape flowers:

Both adults and children can easily make these and they can be made with any pattern of duck tape available or you can even mix and match your colours to make wild designs.  Click on the link below to learn all about these beautiful creations.

Skating:

Skating is a wonderful way for families to enjoy the winter weather because there is the option to be both indoors or outdoors.  I remember when I was a little girl and my parents took me and my sister to a nearby pond that had frozen over and we skated for hours.  Indoor rinks are also a lot of fun, going around in circles listening and singing along to the music during free skate periods.

Hopefully these activities inspire your family to spend more time together today and throughout the year. If you are worried about the cost of spending one day with your kids; just remember memories have immeasurable value. You may even wind up feeling like a kid again yourself.

10 Tips for the New Year

 

1.  Make a list and then make a game plan

Make a list of goals you’d like to accomplish this year… then make a plan on how to accomplish the goals you are setting.  Anyone can make a list of goals but these goals can only be accomplished if one has thought about the steps needed to be taken in order to make the goals a reality.  Hoping to get back in shape for the New Year?   Make a realistic plan on how you’d be able to accomplish this goal.  For example, setting an eating plan or exercise regime is a good step.

2.  Out with the old, in with the new

Every season I spend a good afternoon cleaning out the closet and/or storage area.  I donate items I haven’t worn or used during the year and throw out any old items that have seen better days.  It feels good to let go of things that you don’t really need and live with the essentials.  This can be done in all living spaces.  If you have five different  moisturizers in your bathroom that you barely use, chances are you’ll probably never use them.  Toss them!

Tip:  If you are having a hard time parting with an item, take a picture of the item and keep it in an album or memory box.  This will save a great deal of space.

3.  Label, label, label!

It feels great to have a more organized living space.  I find it helpful to label certain items around the home such as in the home office, pantry, and living room areas.  When this is done, items are more categorized, structured and just look better!  Lovable Labels offers a variety of Household Labels to assist in organizing living spaces in your home, ensuring a cluttered-free space: www.lovablelabels.ca/category/household-labels

4.  Use clear, plastic bins for storage

For items that need to be stored, use clear, plastic bins so that you can see what items you have put away.  This will be helpful to find the items the next time you need them.

5.  Purchase furniture/ storage units that can be used in more ways than one

The more storage space one has the better!  If you’re looking to buy a new bed or any other furniture piece opt to buy one that has built in drawers or shelving units. It’ll take the guess work out of where to store your items.

6.  Keep a donating basket/bin in a designated area in your home

Keeping a donation basket or bin in your home cuts your de-cluttering time in half!

By doing so, you are slowly placing the unwanted items in the bin throughout the year.  That way you save an enormous amount of time decluttering every season as most of the items will already be set aside.

7.  Make your living arrangement more “liveable”

I tend to move art work or furniture pieces throughout the year to accommodate how I use the space not necessarily where these items “fit”.  I also tend to use bright colours and interesting pieces to make the space livelier and give it some personality.  I find that using certain colours and placing certain items a specific way can add vibrancy and energy in the room.  Art work and paint works wonders!  Some people call it Feng Shui, I call it being crafty.

8.  Clean messes as soon as they happen

Have a bad habit of leaving the dishes in the sink after dinner?  Make a new habit of cleaning dishes or putting items away after they have been used.  It is incredibly easy to have these items pile up leaving you with an even bigger mess to clean!

9.  Have cleaning supplies at hand in a designated area in your home

There is no need to spend a lot of money on cleaning supplies.  There are several cleaning formulas one can find online such as just mixing vinegar and water into a bottle (easy and better for you!).  It helps to have a few cleaning supplies in a specific area at home so that everyone knows where to find them when they are getting that cleaning feeling.  Get your kids involved too with natural/ safe cleaning supplies.

10.  Think before you buy

Every time you make a new purchase think about whether or not you need this item and how you can incorporate this item in your living space.  If you are purchasing some new towels but already have a closet full, think about which ones you can replace or if this is just an impulse buy.  Either way you save money and space.

2013 – A Year in Review

A Year in Review 2013

Lovable Labels turned 10 this year! Its hard to believe that ten years has gone by so quickly! Check out the “10 Things I Learned from 10 Years in Business” by our founder Laura Porreca to get the scoop on what a roller-coaster ride it has been!

This year we worked really hard to launch some fab new products and designs.  Here are just a few examples;

New products launched in 2013:

Mini Dots:  These tough little labels were introduced early this year and are a hit.  A smaller version of our Press n’ Stick Clothing Dots, are smaller but get the job done.  Available in 20 designs and 120 labels per pack the only problem one may have is choosing a design.  One of my personal favourites!

Party Packs:  Our Party Packs got the party started with their great designs and variety of labels in one convenient package.  Available in 20 designs these can easily be added to your party loot bags or present them on their own.

Sports Team Packs:  Similar to our Party Packs, these cater specifically to the sports star in the making.  Available in 4 colours and 9 sports icons, these will come in handy when distinguishing between sports equipment and jerseys on the field.

Stocking Stuffers:  Our Stocking Stuffers made their debut this holiday season with 7 holiday themed designs making the gift giving a little easier for your mind and your wallet- only $5.00 per child!

Baby Labels:  We changed our Baby Labels to provide a more personalized touch by including the option to personalize the label with a name and providing the 4 new designs.

Pantry Labels:  We spiced up our Pantry Labels (no pun intended) with 3 new designs:  Retro, Modern and Country.

Also. we introduced 9 new designs for our single packs and value packs this year. With names like “You’re out of This World” and “Monster Mash” you can’t go wrong!

On behalf of everyone here at Lovable Labels we wanted to express our heart felt thanks to our loyal customers – without you none of this could be possible!

Wishing you all peace, health and a Happy New Year!

10 Things I Learned from 10 Years in Business

It is hard to believe that it has been 10 years since I started Lovable Labels. Running a business is like riding a roller coaster – did I mention I am scared of roller coasters? So how did I get from working in my basement to a 5000 square foot facility with full time staffers and a database full of loyal customers? It was not easy!

Here are the top 10 things I learned from 10 years in business:

Work harder than ever before

If you’re working for yourself, everything that you do has a direct impact on the results of the business so you have to become a lot more efficient in what you’re doing. Getting up early and going to bed late will be the norm. Your business becomes your life. Also be prepared to not pay yourself for the first couple of years. Working hard does not translate into becoming rich. Make sure you are up to the task both financially and emotionally.

Balance (or lack thereof)

This is the question I get asked the most.  How do I run a business, and be a mommy all at once?  The truth is I struggle with this everyday.  Guilty is a useless emotion so if you are going to be away from your family at work then give it your 100% and if you are going to make family time count then make sure you live in the moment and don’t think about work. It’s a constant juggling act and it is not easy but you do your best.

Make Mistakes Count

Mistakes are only mistakes if you do not learn from them. Each time you make a mistake you have an opportunity to learn a valuable lesson from it. If you’re caught up in trying to be perfect, blameless and flawless you’ll miss out on what your mistakes are trying to teach you.

Live and Learn

If I were going to have a motto for my business over the last two years, that would be it.  I say it during and after every project.  Starting any business is, after all, a huge learning curve.  Every day, every project, every client interaction, every cost estimate is an opportunity to see where you did well or, just as likely, where you could do better or work smarter going forward.

Always have a Plan B

I’ve always said I am a Plan B kind of girl. You see, Plan A’s just never seems to work out for me so knowing this I always have a Plan B no matter what. For me it is almost reassuring that if something does not work out I have something just up my sleeve.

You can say ‘no’ and survive 

Who knew? I certainly didn’t. Thinking you are a bad person for saying no is a symptom of “the disease to please.” Learning how to say no is one of the most useful skills you can develop. Saying no to unnecessary commitments and daily distractions can give you the space you need to focus on what is important to you. In fact, not being able to say no is one of the biggest downfalls that successful entrepreneurs claim as their own key mistakes.

You’re not a one-person show

Success is never a one-man show. It’s really about a group of people collaborating, creating something bigger than they are out of their unique qualities, working together to harness the best possible potential in each other. Work as a team and keep everyone in the loop, exhibit trust, assign responsibility and share success stories.

Manage Priorities

You know that sinking feeling you have when there’s too much on your plate? When you try to tackle your tasks by priority, but it feels like everything’s important? Don’t get overwhelmed—it’s a problem that everyone faces at some point or another, and while it’s difficult to skillfully juggle multiple priorities and competing responsibilities, it’s not impossible. Whichever tool and productivity method you choose, dump your to-dos and projects into it as quickly as possible. Make sure it’s something you’ll actually return to and use frequently, and something that’s easy to fit into your workflow, and you’ll be successful. In the end, you want something easy to refer to, easy to enter tasks into, and that gives you a great view of all of the balls you have in the air at any time.

Mix Drinks with Friends not Business

Going into business with friends or family? Prepare for disaster. If you’re naive — er, I mean optimistic — enough to think you can make it work, be sure you can handle the business pitfalls that can damage a personal relationship. It may work for some but is it really worth the risk? The best advice I can offer based on my experience is not to enter into any business transactions with a family member.  While it can be tempting, it rarely ends well.

Always have your mind on the next step

Ten years is a long time but yet can feel like it went by so quickly. For many small-business owners it’s enough to focus on where they will be next month, never mind where they will be 10 years from now. But it’s not a bad idea to occasionally think about where you’d like to see yourself in a decade, if only to remind yourself why you went out on your own to build a business. Because I love what I do I hope to still be making labels and customers happy.

Cheers to another awesome 10 years!

30 Blogs with the Best Ideas for School Snacks

Planning Snacks

It’s easy to forget what you’ve given your child for a snack each day with everything else that you have on your plate as a parent. That’s why organizing school snacks is a great way to keep track of your child’s nutritional intake. A simple calendar will do, but a system that is, by design, tailored towards school lunches would work much better. There are some excellent ideas for planning school snacks, as well as a number of free printables, in these five blogs.


Juiced Lunch Snacks

Juicing is a cheap and effective way to get inventive with school snacks. It’s something different, but there is also the opportunity to introduce some new ingredients into your child’s diet. The choices for juiced snacks are virtually unlimited, too. Plus, you can also reduce food waste by using ingredients that would have otherwise been thrown out. Put your juicing skills to the test with these five blogs.


Healthy Lunch Snacks

If you’re a parent who wants to introduce your child to a much healthier diet, school snack time presents the ideal opportunity. Your child can receive their five fruit and vegetable servings a day without even realizing that they are eating such a healthy diet. Start your child off on a healthy lifestyle while he is still young by introducing some of the great ideas in these five blogs to his snack-time menu.


Sweet Lunch Snacks

Sugar can have its place in a child’s diet, but only in moderation, of course. An occasional sweet choice for school snack-time won’t damage a child’s otherwise healthy diet. Plus, not all sweet treats are bad. You can still provide healthy choices with a little added sugar just for taste. So make sure to sweeten up his week by allowing him to indulge in the treats featured on these five blogs.


Freezer Friendly Snacks

When you’re planning ahead, it certainly helps to know that you can freeze some of your snack choices. Freezing any food stuff saves you a lot in labor and reduces waste. Unless you want to be perpetually busy and broke, you’d be wise to stockpile whatever snacks you can. Don’t think from day to day – think from term to term. Remember, it’s all about balance and organization, so get ahead of the game with these five excellent blogs.


Mixed Bag

Once you’ve mastered the organizing, creating and stockpiling of snacks, you can really start to diversify the menu. Imagine being the parent of the kids who brings the coolest snacks at school! Variety is most definitely the spice of life. Your kids will never get bored with a mixed bag of snacks for every school day. You’re going to want to bookmark these five blogs, because they’re packed full of great ideas for school snacks that will keep your kids happy for the entire school year.

Homework 101 for Boys and Girls

With the school year already underway, parents and teachers alike are trying to figure out new and exciting ways to help teach and motivate our children throughout the school year. As parents, we depend a lot on our teachers and school system to do a lot of the work, but helping kids succeed academically expands beyond the classroom and into our own homes.

If you’re a parent of both boys and girls, I’m sure you already know how different they can be – their brains just work in two completely different ways. While both have strengths and weaknesses, learning how to understand the differences between both your children’s brains and help them exceed at all aspects of learning, not just their strengths, can really go a long way.

While girls tend to excel  in reading, writing, and speech, boys tend to have an edge in math and science. As a parents, finding a way to balance your children’s strengths while helping them improve in their problem areas can be a challenging objective to reach. Luckily, there are ways you can help both your kids succeed.

After a long day of learning, kids need some time to recharge. Instead of having your children finish all their homework immediately after coming home, allow them sometime to recharge. Remember that boys and girls are different and while your daughter likes to chat away about her day to blow off steam, your son is more likely to zone out while listening to his iPod. Allow your kids to relax in whatever works for them – this will ensure their brains are ready to take on more learning when homework time comes around.

Help Your Boys

Boys are prone to fidgeting while girls have the ability to sit in the classroom and focus on a particular task for longer periods of time. Instead of forcing your son to stay and finish all his homework in on sitting, allow frequent breaks. Set a timer and let him do 15 minutes of homework and 15 minutes of riding his bike. This allows him to stay focused by giving his brain the break it needs.

Be creative when helping your son with his studies. Incorporate a study game, like throwing a ball while studying his spelling words. This makes learning those tougher subject easier for him.

Help Your Girls

When your girls get stumped on their homework assignments, they will most likely benefit from talking it through. Help your girls problem solve by discussing the core issues with them and help them come a solution. Encourage her to be more active. While girls may enjoy reading a book to relax, get her involved in more outdoor activities to help her develop motor skills.

Use everyday examples to help her understand math and science. Use slices of pizza to explain fractions, or encourage her to help dad with some of his personal projects so she gets a better understanding of how these things work.

Whatever method works best for your kids, is the way that you should approach it. Remember, that both kids may require completely different strategies when it comes to at home learning, but taking that little bit of extra time will not only help them at school, but let them know that you’re a supporter of their academics, no matter which path they choose.

To Label or not to Label – that is the question.

To Label or not to Label? Needless to say, when it comes to your children’s belongings, that’s practically a redundant question. Of course you need to use those Lovable Labels and label every thing that leaves your doorstep! Everything you ask? Including the kids themselves? That’s exactly the question that I’m posing.

If you were to label your child, what would his/her label hold as implications? I was reading an interview with Josh Shipp, The Teen Whisperer. In it he makes this claim:

“Here’s what every kid needs to learn: if you don’t identify yourself—decide who you are—other people will do it for you.”

I think we all crave a sense of identity. So when it comes to your kids, my position is that we need to really know how to label them ourselves. If we don’t someone will label them for us. The question is how?

I believe it’s a repetition and consistency thing. As often as possible, tell your child, “We believe in you; we see the best in you.”

Do what you can as a parent to give him a foundation and a positive sense of self–esteem, and help him learn how to decide on his own who he is.

So when it comes to your kids, my position is that we need to really know how to label them ourselves. If we don’t someone will label them for us – at our expense.

Kids should be kids implies that kids should have fun and be “at peace”

It does not imply that they should not be building their future because that is all we are doing one way or another.

Perhaps if we combine both when it seems more age appropriate , kids will continue to grow up to have fun while building their future. It just becomes easier, more natural, more peaceful, more organic.
