Special announcement: My sister Karoline gave birth yesterday (1:40pm Italy time) to her baby girl Sophie and I will be the godmother and my bother the godfather. Both are doing well and once I have photos to share, I will make sure to post them.
Here's a 8" x 8" that I made this last weekend during the crops for a special friend with the new Origins from Basic Grey. LOVE, Love LoVe this collection! I think my favorite so far. They have fun new elements to go with their lines such as fabric flowers, die cut shapes, canvas tags, etc.
A fun weekend with friends....3 days - 2 crops. Friday and Saturday I was trying to work hard with the energy I had (* starting a cold*) on my upcoming Printer's Tray class in February for the store. I will share it Wednesday after it being release in Jenn's newsletter. For the lucky ladies at the crop they were able to have a sneak peek! It was fun to have so many friends there and what a cheerful time it was. Katie lodged at the S&S hotel suites and Stephane had prepped the bed folding the sheets open for her, really sweet. He even offered to cook us French Toast for breakfast, but we were eager to start our day at the crop! Thanks Loulou for the additional chat at the end of the crop. xx
Sunday I had a get together with Mellisa, well worth it, it's has been so long. 4+ hours at the Works (new location Hunt Club Albion - yeahhhh kinda close to work!) to chat, laugh, have a few tears, basically reconnect. Love you Mell and next thing on the list a crop day to get you girls back on track!
Tonight working on my all about me layouts "Bucket list", it's all in my brain so I can't wait to get it done!
Rest of the week will be full of activities and next Saturday it's my My Minds Eye Chipboard Album, I know we have a few spots left, if you wish to attend please call the store 613-745-2215!
Have a happy week
I painted this watercolor painting "Looking Up to Old Glory" just days after 9/11/01. I felt scared, anxious for what would come next in our country. My husband was on an aircraft carrier in the Gulf and I had not spoken (really emailed) with him since the morning of 9/11, I watched the news 24 hours a day hoping to catch word of his ship and find out where he was. To this day when I look at this painting and think about our world then, I get so emotional I can't control my tears. On this day, I keep all the families that lost a loved one or dear friend close to my heart -- and will look to Old Glory for comfort. #neverforget
