Shutting her down

Unfortunately I will no longer be able to come back to maintain this blog, I'm so busy with my business, clown fish & jessie boo and my family that I just can't keep up here. I have been getting so many spam comments lately also, so I have decided to shut it down.

Thank you to everyone who has followed and commented and entered my comps. I really appreciate the love and support I've come to know from the blogging community!

I'll still be around, over at my business Please feel free to visit and say hi at my facebook page

So this is goodbye......... for now :)

UPDATE: I would like to leave the blog up, and have just figured out I can disable comments :) So instead of deleting the whole blog, I'll just disable commenting! :) Who knows, I might be back every now and then with something wonderful to share!!

Dora the Explorer: First Bike {GIVEAWAY}


The winner is Silvana G!
Her daughter Sofia's colouring caught Emily's eye!

Congratulations Sofia, your copy of Dora the Explorer: First Bike
will be on it's way to you soon!


Hello there! It's been a while, so I thought it was time for a giveaway!!

We recently received the newest release from our friend Dora The Explorer: First Bike.
When Emily got home and saw it on the table, she went nutso!

Released on June 20, 2012 this latest DVD invites viewers to watch Dora demonstrate the magic of friendship as she helps her best friend Boots, to ride his first bike and find his missing boots, plus more.

Dora the Explorer: First Bike features four fantastic adventures including three new to DVD episodes.

Boots’ First Bike 
Boots is ready for his first big­‐kid bike! Help Dora take him on an adventure to the Bike Shop, and help 
other friends do new things for the first time too!

It's Vacation Time! Help Dora and Boots pack up to meet Diego and Baby Jaguar for a night at the Rainforest Campground, and help Dora's friends get set for their trips too! 

Bouncy Boots 
Boots can't wait to get his boots back from the Shoe Shop, but when he gets bouncy boots instead, Dora and you need to help him on a bouncy adventure to find his own boots! 

The Big Red Chicken's Magic Wand 
Big Red Chicken accidentally breaks his magic wand after turning Boots into a chicken! To turn Boots back,  help Dora return to Magic Land and fix the wand at the Wand Shop!

Both my girls loved this DVD, Jessica dances to the music and can kind-of say Dora! Emily loves that they have bikes like her, and never fails to inform me of this. Every time it's on!
