Introducing Greedo and last weeks events!

Here are a few pictures of our newest member at our home.... Greedo (aka Bounty Hunter in the Star Wars Movies). After debating with other names we really love this one! Phonetically in French "Gree" sounds like the color Grey, so just perfect for him! He is not even 2 months and we are enjoying his company to the fullest. Plays for hours with Stephane and then snuggles and sleep with me (good mother/father figure I think!) Happily introduce once at the store, to Stephane's mom, Katie and the girls, Dorrie and Louise (tante Loulou) yesterday!

On September 19-20, we enjoyed some last moments with my sister and Seby as they were going back home on the 22nd. We had a great weekend and having Greedo the Monday night made it easier on the big sister that finds good-byes always so hard. Planning a spring visit for the Christening of baby Sophie as my brother and me will be the Godparents.

Last week Monday and Tuesday "super Dorrie" came to the rescue! Let's put it out that I needed some help to get back on track, organize and purge some of my scrapbook item's. Thanks Dorrie for your help and hard love. I was then ready to get ride of some items at the Garage sale last Saturday! A great feeling.... After all will be done, I am planning to start a little venture with Etsy. Watch out for that in the future!

I also completed some project's for the store last week (need to take pictures)! Tonight I am finishing my upcoming card class (X-mas theme Using some Tim Hotlz stamps with the Sticky back Canvas and paints of Claudine Hellmuth ) and a 2 Canvas project with the Pink Paislee Seasonal line.

Saturday Rach and John we having us (Katie, Laurie, Dorrie and me) over for diner... to celebrate Rach's b-day. WOW! once again John, you were an amazing cook... like I said "From the beginning, to the middle and up to the end, all was just amazing!" Thanks guys for the delightful evening!

Sunday - Stephane prepared us a fabulous breakfast and at 1pm Loulou came and visited us up to 6 to do organizing. We had a beautiful afternoon, able to chat without interruptions and get 2 big Turquoise bins completely done and empty! Thanks Louise for your help!

This am was - recycle day - YEAH!!!!! 2 large plastic bag with all my empty packaging's of plastic was left on the curb, ahhhhhh feels good!

Busy week this one will be!
Today & Tomorrow - finishing projects, Wednesday and Thursday teaching 2 almost sold out classes ("Me and my pet #2" and the left page of my Grand Mothers layout "Sweet memories") * I think I have 1 or 2 spots left in the classes, so if you are interested, call the store 613-745-2215. Friday and Saturday cropping at the store with Katie, Rach and her mom for the 2 days and Loulou is joining us for the Friday night. Katie will be enjoying accommodations at the S Team lodge, unfortunately no light saber demonstration this time around, Stephane will be gone at his Hunting camp to get the upcoming season ready!

I was really overdue for a post! This was a long recap!
Enjoy your Week!

A touch of "azzurro"

Yes.... a few additional words in Italian here and there in my vocabulary.... That's what happens when you sister is fluently trilingual (French, English and Italian) and translate a week long to her sister in law visiting with her!

My minds Eye Ooh la la "for Her"...

I just want to scream on the top of a roof and I say..... "I love this paper line so much!" The colors and designs makes me happy, in looks a bit like old vintage fabric.... if it would existed as a fabric collection... I would be on cloud 9!

Here's a couple of layout I made for the store with some of the pictures taken last weekend with my sister and Magali... They were just perfect for it!
The best thing is that My Minds Eye created the matching line for men.... the Ooh la la "for Him"! Love Love Love!

The large letters are actually from a Heidi Swapp Alpha foam pack and they were "hounds tooth" was really not working for this layout.... so I used some Tim Hotlz Crackle Paint and covered them and once dry I added some Crystal Lacquer. Looks really cool up close.

I used my Copic markers to change the color of the clear bling to green... they are the perfect tool to match your bling!!!!

Hugs and happy Thursday!
