Well now...

Since only two of you left a comment, I can only do the right thing and send you both a little blog candy! Sarah and Tara...please email me your mailing addys! I know I have them here somewhere, but it will be quicker this way! :)

Ok, a lot of you are visiting, but no one is leaving any comments! Not a requirement of course, but always nice to see who has stopped by! So, in celebration of my almost 500th visitor, I am giving away some blog candy. Still working on what that will be, but I have a few more visitors to see first to reach 500. So, leave a comment on this post and I will do a random draw after I see 500 people have visited!

Feeling ducky...

Here is another cake I "whipped up" the other night. A good friend of mine was heading to a craft fair and offered a corner of her table for a cake and my business cards. When I dropped the cake off at her place, her cleaning ladies went CRAZY for it! One of them took my business card and was asking "could I do this, could I do that, could I do these colours", so hopefully a sale will come from that! Guess we will have to wait and see what happens!

And here they are...

So while I was away at my weekend scrapbooking retreat, I was able to make a simple thank you card for a friend that helped me out a lot with getting this blog going! Thank you so much, Tina!

I also got both Tanner and Elsie's 5th Birthday layouts done. I am planning on doing an album for each of them and have a one page layout for each special day. I will do their birthday party layouts separately in their chronological albums.

Sue had this layout on display in her store, Memories on Main St, and I just had to scraplift it. I was doing the layout by memory, but I am happy with how it turned out. I had made Tanner a "star" card for his birthday (he loves stars), and he is signing STAR in the picture.

Elsie had her Princess Party for her 5th birthday. The dress in the bottom right is the front and back of the party invite.

And, I got two more kits done. A good friend is attending as a vendor at a craft show this Friday. She has offered to take some of my kits and a diaper cake for me. Guess I'd better make sure I stop by and visit her there for awhile!

Coming soon...

I was able to work on a few new kits this weekend. I ran out of natural light before I could photograph them, so I am hoping to get some pictures posted tomorrow. Make sure you come back and check them out!

In the meantime, I am also working on setting up a separate blog to showcase the items that I sell. Watch for coming to a computer near you soon!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Another assignment done! :)

Sue at Memories on Main St in Lambeth, asked that I put together a two-page layout that she could teach as a class. I was up for the challenge! I went to see her today, and unfortunately she has sold out of some of the paper! But, as soon as she gets it back in stock, she will be offering the class. So, if you like the layout make sure to contact Sue and sign on up!
Note: the colours washed out a little in the photo, I'm thinking it was the lighting in the room...sorry!

Just thought I would share...

Nov 1 - 7th is National Down Syndrome Awareness Week.

As a mother to a child with Down syndrome, I want you to know that I welcome questions about DS. I would rather you ask than not be certain. There are so many stereotypes out there that are untrue. We do not think of our son as disabled, he is just differently abled than many other children. But, he still loves to do things other children do! Some of his favourites are watching movies, swinging, swimming, being read to, and listening to his iPod. Oh, and teasing his little sister!

Here we are. Another Halloween come and gone. We always wonder whether all the activity will be too much for Tanner, but after passing on a few houses, he was hitting every one! He even got mad when we tried to turn the wagon around to head back down the street! You see, there was one house left we hadn't gone to (no one was home)!
The girls had such a blast, too. Elsie and Sydney were both Princesses - Cinderella to be exact, and Sydney Rose was a "good" witch. I'm so happy that all had so much fun!
