It's great to

have my husband home again!! He was in Calgary this past week visiting our daughters and it was a verrry long week here without him. Our youngest dd had surgery on her knee and it went so well she is back on her feet already. Although I know they
loved having their dad with them I am happy to have him back here!!

I have been trying to organize my new craft space without success and
finally figured out the problem. The walls in the room I was using are
a very deep purple and it just was not working for me so on Friday
night I switched rooms and feel so much more comfortable in my new
orange room. I actually have it organized that I can reach most of my
stuff quite easily.

I went to New Ross on Saturday and got a couple of cards made. The first 2 cards are made using the DCWV Pocket full of Posies Stackmat. These are perfect for card making
as you waste such a small amount of paper from each piece. They are both from sketches although for the life of me I cannot find where the first one came from!! The second is from Di Hickman

I also used MM's paint, HA stamp and SU stamp from Doodle This.

I used my SU punch, HA and SU stamps as well as Stampendous Diamond stickers.
This next card is from Beate
The PP is from my BB Gypsy pad. Paint is MM's and stamps from SU.

and this last one is using Doodlebug pp and HA stamp.

Let's see if I can

get back into this again. We are now pretty well settled into the house
we are renting. I have set up a small studio in an exercise room and NO
it has not motivated me to start exercising!! I had the privilege of getting together at Debbie's house. What a great time we had and even made a card or two. Thank you again Debbie for having us again. I look forward to the next time we get together.

Shari brought all of us the materials for all of us to make this card. What you can't see from this photo is the transparency over the top of the ribbon. It adds just the right touch to it.
I also got this one done. My goal was to get one card made so I guess that means I surpassed my goal!!

This one is made with Scenic Route pp, Genx chipboard, MM gem stickers and misc. buttons.
Elaine (who has just started blogging!!) brought this ATG gun for me. I love it, and I won't lose it on the table in the middle of a project!!

You can see I am trying to get my ribbons organized yet again!! I had them wrapped on cardboard but found it too flexible so I am redoing them on mylar and will be glad when I am done!!!! Well, I have a lot to catch up on on other people's blogs so have a great Tuesday!!

There's definatley no cardmaking

in my house right now as there are boxes everywhere!!! We are almost completely moved. I am in the middle of cleaning and I think we will be moved into our rental house on Thursday. I have packed up my craft room and sent part of it to my nephew's house and have some carts that will go with me to the temp. home. This is a counter Paul made for me years ago, it was suppose to fold down when I wasn't using it, but it was never empty enough for that to happen!!

I photocopied pics years ago to scrapbook and then figured I might as well use the originals to scrapbook. I didn't want to throw out the copies so I covered the countertop with them. I took it down yesterday and will put it in the new house somewhere as it has so many memories on it!!

But..I have been taking time to spend with the family as the godchildren are only home for a week or so. We went to the Canada Day fireworks in Hantsport last night and everyone had a grand time.
This is my cousin Chris, he lives in Calgary and has come home for his sister's wedding on Saturday. Ashley and Zackary are thrilled he's home while they are here.

Zach had a blast using Chris's camera!!

Zach had Uncle Paul all lit up with his lightstick while we were waiting for the fireworks to start.
