The other day I was filling the bird feeder. Hubby says to me, "I just filled that yesterday." I said, "Really? Because I filled it the day before!"

Yup. Found the culprit. Lives under our deck and empties the feeder daily, if we let him.

Ok, as promised... new posts and pictures!

July 25th was the 15 hr crop at Scrapping Great Deals. Although inspired by Sheila, there was NO WAY I could get as many layouts done as her. I was too busy "visiting!" Sheila completed about 16 layouts that day/night!

I managed to complete a project for a client. I have a family that has now purchased their THIRD Star Album from me. First the daughter for her baby girl, then the Step-mom inlaw for her baby boy, and now the mom for a 50th Wedding Anniversary she is attending. The other two claimed to have loved theirs, so I am hoping she will be just as happy with hers!

Her are some pics of the three of them...

I also got a layout done that included some pictures my dad had emailed me. He wasn't sure who had taken the pictures, but it was of alot of Bald Eagles feeding at Comox, BC. And, I do mean ALOT. See for yourself! (And thanks to whomever took the photos. They are stunning!)

Elsie and I went to a play called "There's a Mouse in the House" The mouse character had her hair in two pony-type knots on her head for ears. Elsie decided she wanted some mouse ears of her own. I knew that it would leave her hair nice and wavy, so I convinced her to let me put them all over her head. Um, can you say ROCKSTAR?

The Flower Ranch is a nursery in Strathroy. Every year at Christmas, they invite local school kids to have their picture taken with Santa. They have a huge spread of cake, cookies, coffee, crafts for the kids, etc. Oh, and a free photo with Santa! We have gone for the past few years now, and Tanner has yet to make it in to see Santa. Elsie has made it each time... with Mommy right there beside her!

The room.

So, I am ready to "load the room." Unfortunately, I don't have the gang from Trading Spaces here to help me, and I don't have any of the furniture figured out yet. But, we figured I would just get everything into the room and then go from there!

So, here's where we are at...

Thanks for looking!

OMG! Candace?!??!?!?!?

Well, that's what I was saying when I walked in to work on Friday! A little back story first. I am a member of the cricut messageboard over at There are hundreds of thousands of members, but there are about 40 that I have become close with over the past four years. We often do card swaps, gift swaps, circle journals, recipe books, and secret santas just to name a few. One of the more successful activities is matching up "secret sisters" from around the world. Now. I can't remember if Candace had Anja as her secret sister, or if it was the other way around - I think it was - but, Anja is visiting in Canada right now! I was not able to get to any of the get-togethers, so imagine my surprise when I found them SHOPPING in the store where I work! Woo hoo! It was so great to see Candace again (she lives a fair drive away) and to meet Anja! Wish they could have stayed longer, but I think they were getting a little shopped out!

So, it was GREAT seeing you ladies! Enjoy the rest of your visit together, and have a safe journey home, Anja! P.S. I went and stole the picture from your blog! :)
