I collect scrapbooking everything and every once in a while I think I should clean some out. Well these scissors are something I haven't used in years. I wonder, does anyone use them anymore? All that being said I just can't let go. I feel like as soon as I give these away someone on the MB will make a real cute card or layout using a pair of these scissors and then I'll have to go buy them again. LOL! Yep, I'm certifiably crazy!
Can you believe it. I got my Christmas present today. I wasn't sure about getting a Gypsy but since Provocraft had that special Michaels promo I figured it was worth it. It's my present from David but I had to open it to register it. I think an empty box and the accessories will be the only thing under the tree. LOL!
The good thing is all my Christmas layouts will be finished just waiting for the big event.
Everytime I sit down to create I am facing this messy, bulletin board. It just keeps getting more and more messy. The worst part is rather than try to clean it up (I do know everything that's on it) I just want to buy another and put it beside it.
David's dad smokes all the time. I guess the warning doesn't matter to some smokers. I thought I'd take a picture of this cigarette package and hopefully in the future no one will know what they look like except from old pictures.
I was out for a walk this morning with the dogs when all of a sudden it started snowing. Ofcourse I didn't have my camera. Well snow usually means so cold so I figure this box of tissues was appropriate.
I am thankful so much in my life. I need to acknowledge this more often throughout the year. I am especially thankful for humour. It gets me through life sometimes.
David woke me up with this hat on this morning. I howled!!! He put it on again later today as I needed some cheering up. Isn't it just too funny.
We had a fun day at the Simcoe Fair. It's the third largest fair in Ontario. One of our favourite shows is the lumber jacks. I snapped this shot of this poor guy when he fell during the log rolling. Yikes, that must hurt! Oh yes and the water was only 3 degrees. Brrrrrrr.
It's a crappy, semi sunny, very windy day and I knew it was pumpkin time. Everytime I see pumpkins I think of this song "Hello county bunkin; how's the frost out on the pumpkin" - that's all I know of it :)
I stayed an extra day at Bev's and while on our way shopping we saw this awesome Halloween display. I have never seen anything like it. The owners were really great and let me go through it. This is a front view but believe me there was a lot more behind.
Here is their web page if your interested in checking it out.
It's always sad to have to say goodbye to friends. This is our final swarm 2009 picture. GrammaT (Mary) held an awesome swarm and we all had a fabulous time. I'm going to miss everyone. I wish everyone was in this picture but some had already left.
Front - Christine and Bev
Back row - Karen, Jean, GrammaT (Mary) and Savannah
We had door prizes and my name was picked first. I chose this package. When I opened it I couldn't believe it! I was so happy, I have never won a large prize before. Thanks Karen for donating this wonderful prize. Judy and I had a great time playing with it. Love it, love it, love it!
I'm off to a three day swarm at GrammaT's so had to get these ATC's finished so I could mail them in the USA. I had a hard time with this Royal/Saphire theme and ended up just doing shades of blue.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ROB! Love you.
It's that time of year to dig up all the potatoes and store them for the winter. This is our potatoe digger where they are sorted as they are dug and then put into potatoe bins. They are then sorted from the bins into the storage.
