Winter is Here to Stay!

Brrrr!!! It is snowing again, ICK!! I have to drive about 2 ½ hours north to Athabasca tomorrow, so I really hope that it stops soon! I know everyone with snowmobiles is excited (Michelle), but I just don’t feel the love for the snow. I would have been just fine with a brown Christmas.

On a happier note, the furnace at work has been fixed and the office is a balmy 220C this morning. It didn’t get fixed until late yesterday afternoon, so everyone ended up wearing their winter coats all day. We had space heaters all over the place! I tried whining to my husband about how cold it was, but it turns out the guy who works right beside the bay doors (that were open all day yesterday for deliveries) in an already cold machine shop has no sympathy!

Speaking of the hubby, I did a layout all about him for the Thankful challenge at
ScrapMojo challenge. I just love this picture of him and had a great time creating this layout!! (I have now fixed the spelling mistake, I guess my brain took the weekend off!)

Have a great (and warm) day!!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

I managed to get quite a few pages done this weekend (well lots for me, not lots in Heather standards). I scrapbooked all day Saturday with Michelle, Heather and Michelle’s friend Kim at the Urban Scrapbook. We had a blast!! I spent a little more than I had planned, but what do you expect when you spend the day surrounded by all those goodies!

Here is one of the pages that I did on Saturday. It is for the Unpubbed challenge. I have so many great pictures from our photoshoot with Heather that it was nice to showcase a bunch of them on one page.

On Sunday Ken and I decided to check out the new mega, super, ridiculously large Wal-Mart. We thought it might be a little less busy because the Grey Cup was on, but we were WRONG!! I think it is safe to say that we will never go back to the new mega, super, ridiculously large Wal-Mart. To make us feel better after the Wal-Mart fiasco we decided to go out for dinner. It was fabulous, we even splurged and had dessert!!

Too bad the awesome weekend was spoiled by the snow and freezing cold I woke up to this morning. Brrrr!! The furnace in the office must be shocked too, because it is freezing! I am sitting at my desk wearing my winter coat, and I am very tempted to but my hood on ;) I hate winter (sorry Michelle), it makes me want to crawl into bed with tons of blankets and hibernate!

On that note, I should get back to work!! Have a gooder!!

Hi, from Valleyview!!

I am out of town right now for work, but I thought I would update since I had some spare time. I haven't had too much time to be crafty lately, but I have made some Christmas cards already. I will try and post pictures when I am back in the City. I plan on doing a lot of scrapbooking this weekend, and I can't wait!!

I am writing this on a tablet PC, so it is very hard to write this. Here is a picture of so you know what I am talking about.

Hopefully work will slow down soon and I can update more!! Have a goodnight.

Wacky Wednesday

Well, things have been pretty busy around here. I did get to scrapbook a bit this weekend, but not nearly as much as I had hoped. I have all of these ideas floating around in my head, but it seems like I can never find the time to create them.

On Friday night I finally finished my lift of Heather’s Unpubbed layout, unfortunately, I did not get it in in time for the contest, but I least I got it done.

And, I will have you notice that it is a Disney layout!! I finished three Disney layouts on the weekend. I might actually get this album done in the near future. Here are the other two. For some reason my scanner does not like me right now so they may look a little wonky. I promise, in real life every thing is straight.

I was going to scrapbook on Sunday night, but instead I did this.

It was my first official babysitting gig as an Aunt. And as you can see we had no fun what so ever! Who knew reading Wacky Wednesday would cause us to go so wacky!

This week is gearing up to be pretty hectic. I won’t even start to whine about my winter tire fiasco! This weekend, however, is showing some hope of me creating some more layouts. Hopefully, I have some new pages to show very soon!!
