My Little Friend


My Little Friend
Sits near the kitchen window, and somehow always warms my heart everytime I glance over and see him. He really enjoyed these lovely flowers I bought for Makayla.

Slava's Snow Show
















Sun afternoon.. I thought it would be great to have a family afternoon at the theatre...... Slava's Snow Show was pure delight for all ages. clowning around amongst the snow ( little bits of white and silver paper) Clowns entertained us in a very non traditional way. Captivating and engaging every part of our imaganation, senses and inner-child possible. I would love to see this show again and again.. to end the show there was a giant snow blizard blown across the audience.. we couldn't even open our eyes!.. LOVED IT !

Spring is in the air ~


Another weekend is here and Christmas is another step closer.. I must begin a drasic cleanup of my house and make it a home again. Something about spring weather makes me feel like cleaning..don't know if it is the sun shinning throughout the rooms highlighting the dust ect. We have just bought a new cooktop and rangehood for the kitchen to match the new oven, and hopefully that will get installed before the weekend is over.

Another of Sue's cards this one she created the background with stampin up reinkers droped onto gloss card stock and water spitzed over.. then sandwiched another gloss card onto the top of that for a mirrored imaged. Then used the Regal rose to over stamp...nice effect


Oh and Linni decided to wear her CosPlay costume Makayla gave her for her birthday. Thanks for sharing GIRLS...

Stampin' Up! Christening
















The day was perfect for a christening... even if it was my new stamp kit! My guests were all full of energy and enthusiam. Sue was cooking with gas... the creative flow was running wild. Mark was on the coffee machine churning out HOT coffee and HOT chocolate YUM YUM !





Just seeing so many new things was quite overwhelming and I did not produce 1 card.





NO FAIR :-(





However on the

brighter side I got my first customer, quite unexpected. YEAH!
