Fall is here! The leaves are changing colours at a rapid pace, we’ve already passed Thanksgiving with Halloween only weeks away!

Hallmark Canada has some wonderful products to help celebrate the fall season and Halloween from decorations to greetings!

Know someone who has a birthday close to or just really LOVES Halloween? Hallmark offers cute items like Glass Bead Bracelets, Skull Socks and Stickers! Gift it all in a spooky Halloween gift bag which in my opinion could also double as a trick or treat bag, don’t forget the tissue paper!

This fall especially has me thankful for my family; there is no other feeling like having a real family. We would love to welcome them into our home this fall and beyond; what better decor than a welcome placemat on our living room side table which welcomes our family and friends! We can set the table with a Bowl of Thanks and beautiful country-style napkins!

I love the Rustic Wood Sign that reads "Count the really good blessings twice", we sure will! Lastly, in the kitchen, a new set of country-themed measuring spoons sure to spice up the kitchen with their bold colours!

You can find something you need online or in your local Hallmark store!

Ever since we have had cellphones, selfies and home photography have become more and more popular while age-old film camera/running to the drugstore to have the film developed has become something of the past.

I’ve always loved instant cameras and now I can turn my phone into one, kind of. TOMY brings instant photos and digital photography together with the KiiPix photo printer. It’s an easy-to-use instant film printer that doesn’t require any special plugs, apps or even batteries to work.

Get printed photos in a “snap”

- Simply open KiiPix
- Place your phone on top
- Push the button and turn the knob to watch KiiPix turn memories into physical, shareable photos to give to friends and family or display them on the fridge like I did!

The KiiPix requires Fujifilm Instax film to work and there are 10 photos per film; be sure your phone screen lock is on so your screen doesn’t go dark mid print and make sure the photo alignment (using the reflective mirror) and lighting are exactly how you want them or you could waste your film. For best results use KiiPix in a well-lit area, natural light works best. It takes a little while for the film to totally develop, the blotches in this image actually went away after about an hour. 

You can purchase the KiiPix by TOMY ($49.99 film not included) at Toys R Us!
