i so can’t believe how many flowers have blossomed here in the last couple of days. i was out this evening and noticed a few more that i hadn’t seen earlier… a couple of miniature daffodils and a beautiful miniature purple iris. i love a purple iris. they remind me of my dad. i remember years and years ago my dad was driving me home from school i assume and i saw this purple flower thingy in the middle of the field and asked what it was. i couldn’t imagine such a pretty flower growing in the middle of no where. well he stopped the car and went and picked it and gave it to me. it was the most beautiful flower i had ever seen. i think i was perhaps nine or ten.
 to this day i would have to chose them as my favorite as they so remind me of my dad. i should tell him about that…maybe i will

April Fools Day

Wow, i can’t believe it is already the first of April. so far this year has gone by quite fast. lots and lots going on and in the same breath nothing.

one of my favorite things that i have ‘scrapbooked’ lately is this canvas. it is done with nothing but distress inks and glimmermist. i absolutely love it and can’t wait to finish the mini’s to go with it. it truly is a symbol of so many things but mostly of what i believe life to be.. a truly endless journey with pot holes (the globs of glimmermist) and the never ending road of funny sad travels…

as for health, same old same old… i was off for a back xray on Monday so hopefully i will get the results back from that and my doctor will move on to the next step. and speaking of my doctor, he told me two things last week when i was in.. one, i needed to have that surgery and two he is retiring!!!!! i will have to make decisions on what i am going to do about both these things.

this weekend was suppose to be spent skiing, unfortunately mother nature is not co-operating with us. so instead we are trying to decide which kind of vehicle we want to buy. Anyone that knows us, well especially Suzanne, knows we normally can’t wait for the snow to be gone and gardening season comes. Today, our little Suzy was searching the internet looking for the closest ski resort that was still open. Too funny.

Well tomorrow is Easter and i am off work. i am hoping that i have a chance to work on some new things. APOS had their designer reveals today and Cori-lyn, whose work to me is amazing, posted a wonderful little album with acrylic which i want to try. Mind you the other design girls, as always, knock my socks off too. If you would like to take a look at some amazing mini albums check out this website….. http://www.apileofscrap.ca … and take a boo at the gallery…
well that is it for now. hopefully i will be more consistent in updating you all on wonderful me!!!

my first GHL experience

It was an amazing day!
I learned a bit of stitching from alleycat ( :blow: ) and she shared oh so much of her stuff with me. (I want that to be my permanent seat!!!) I was taught a wonderful distress class from Luanna ( :dancing: ) and like Carol said kicked some butt with her for the scavenger hunt ( :highfive: ) I squished Jennypooh’s finger ( :whoops: ) while she was so kindly shared some of her oddles of ribbon with me and had a few laughs with Lorid ( lmao )
i took lots and lots of pic of everyone including DeeDee, Valerie and Petite. K was also there and i am not sure if i got a pic of her as she seemed to disappear every once in a while.
there were a lot of wonderful women there and i wish i had more time to get admire everyone’s work and style. BUT i came up with an idea to ensure that i do get to admire more and scraplift more….

Alissa, please sign me up for the weekend in October!!!! i am going to start my saving NOW!!!!
