THE BORDEN SCRAPBOOK

Our scrapbook isn’t just a place to showcase our rants, raves, healthy highlights and special projects, it’s actually our method of presenting, arranging and preserving what we do. For our small but mighty team, we do a lot. It might seem disjointed and unfocused, but trust us, everything we take on makes sense to us, and when it doesn’t we pull it out of our scrapbook. We love pasting in new finds and resources, inspiring people who are true forces for good (we call them “mosquitos” for a reason), things that outrage us, interesting perspective and lots of food for thought. We hope you will flip and click and scroll and make good use of what we share – that is why we spend the time to share. It’s organized chaos, and we hope it will propel you to be curious, explore and find solutions for you to make your everyday a little better, no matter what you are after or just happen upon.

If something excites or outrages you, if you have a product or service that we should know about, or should you have any comments, complaints, criticisms or compliments please be in touch.


OUR {UN}BLOG

This is an {un}blog, and not really a blog (because I never really do anything completely conventionally), but I certainly do have a lot to say and share (for those of you who know me, you did not need me to spell this out). I’m SO fortunate to be able to connect with people, products, and ideas that I find incredibly inspiring every day, and I hope to use this virtual space to give you an inside look into what’s going on in my (crazy) world…which, I share with you.

Along with my small but mighty team, we will be posting content under 3 main departments, and encourage you to share with us as well. If something excites or outrages you, if you have a product or service that we should know about, or should you have any comments, complaints, criticisms or compliments please be in touch.

Our Halloween Roundup, COVID Edition

Boycotting a holiday altogether is a little ambitious and un-spirited and we have held off every year, but unprecedented times calls for an unprecedented Halloween … will there even be Halloween in 2020? Every year, we have shared that Halloween involves more boos, eeks, screeches and ding-dongs than we should tolerate. In doing so, we have been ridiculed (especially Lisa) and questioned but we have always been after one thing … a less scary Halloween. In these Covid times, perhaps, we are all ready to pay a little more…

Organic Week, Get Involved

Canada’s National Organic Week, September 7-13, 2020 Organic food: it’s better for our planet, better for our health, and better for the farmers. Buying organic can seem like a big investment, but it is all about value. Something to keep in mind: Organic means that your produce is likely “kinder”, but it does not mean “better” and does not guarantee quality. Not all organic food is created equal.
