It’s Goodbye

Sometimes good things must come to an end. It’s sad but life is about having the courage to decide when to stop and move on to something new. After two years 2Sketches4You is closing. Laura and Kazan have invited all past design team to participate in this last post and this is my take based on Kazan’s sketch. I know I have participated in their challenge in ages but 2S4Y will always be my favorite card sketch challenge. Their sketches are always fun, Laura + Kazan were awesome to work with and best of all, I’ve met some great craft

Celebrate Today

Today was a great day… actually this week should be a great week because: I have everybody here with me, no school for M and off work for hubby I got a lot of projects done I got invited to do something super fun — still a secret {::SMILES} We did all the dishes (BIG deal for me!!) We had a yummy salmon dinner, no head! Here’s one project I did today. I used 2S4Y’s sketch for this card. I was going through some die-cuts and found this butterfly. I think I prefer it a bit bigger but it’s pretty


M’s school break. Tomorrow’s her last day and she’ll be done with her year 1 aka kindergarten. My baby is growing up!!! Waaaaaaaaaay too fast!! I think this is why Jovie’s not growing up. I keep telling her to take her time and she might actually be listening to me! I’ll be busy the next few days planning our outings amongst other things. I have a few projects I want to finish too that’s work related. They’re all fun stuff, just need to find the time. Speaking of work, I’ve been asked by our neighbor to help him here and

Is This THE Night?

For Jovie to sleep through the night? She cried twice but very short and she put herself back to sleep. Crossing fingers!!! M was, and still not, one who can put herself back to sleep. Now and then she’d calm herself down but most of the time I’d have to come in and tuck her back in. Or chase her around the house first and then tuck her in. She sleep walks and pee in random places. Last time was the waste basket which was, still is and always have been, right next to the toilet. Good thing it’s a

No Disposables?

Last weekend we went to a BBQ. Lovely BBQ, weather and company. There was one little interesting bit at the BBQ… there was no paper plates/cups and no plastic utensils. They had real silverware, dinnerware and glasses. We never got to asking them if it’s a British thing or if they just wanted a formal type of BBQ. Today we went to a town event. A duck race — you know, those rubber and numbered ducks — and they had games, food and drinks. Except for the paper napkins there were real tea cups, saucers and even the kids’ drinks

Launch Day: CSS + WPlus9!

I can’t believe it’s the first of June!! This means it’s three more days until Jovie’s birthday!! Yes, she’ll be ONE! Wow, how time flies!!! In the mean time, two of the companies that I design for are launching some great new sets today! If you EVER need any sports related stamps Clear and Simple is the place to go. Have you seen their sports section? Loads and loads of sports related stuff!! Today I used one of their new golf set: Golf Pro – which on my card doesn’t quite look golfy although the card can probably go masculine/feminine.
