I had an early taste of spring a few weeks ago though thanks to Canadian Tire. Along with Christine, Vanessa, and Tanya, I was invited to collaborate on the launch of their CANVAS line spring patio collection.
Canadian Tire is a store that is ingrained in the Canadian fabric. First bike, first pair of skates... I'm sure many of us share the same experience of visiting our local store and browsing the aisles piled with goods, everything from toasters to, well, tires. But this new patio collection? This isn't your grandfather's Canadian Tire.

CANVAS is Canadian Tire's line of decor products that let you express your personal style and we we were encouraged to do just that. Each of us bloggers were invited to design an outdoor room. My idea was to create a laid-back summer soiree... a Midsummer Night's Dinner Party.
Filming the videos was quite a surreal experience, one that involved about a dozen camera crew, two days of filming, and fun (faux) party scenes. I was incredibly honoured to be involved in this project and am really proud the content that was produced. Canadian Tire has done an amazing job of working with bloggers in new and innovative ways so I do hope you check out the CANVAS site and see the inspiring work of the other ladies. I love how they've integrated video and product in the site - it's an entirely new way to shop a brand you've come to love.

I am really excited with exploring video myself this year so this was quite a fun learning experience. I've still got a lot to learn like figuring how to work a selfie cam, walk and talk at the same time.
Are you ready for spring? What's your idea of a perfect outdoor room?
