and the weekend approaches

Here we are, the weekend just about to begin. What is it about the weekend? It always holds such expectation...such possibility.

Unfortunately, as we approach this weekend our plans are to prep hubby to go away on Sunday for the work week.  One week in 4 hubby has to go away on business so that weekend prior is always spent prepping for his departure...kinda sucks.

The temps here have plummeted again. It's in the -30's. I think I can see the future....and my future holds a nice warm climate in my senior years. I truly am a summer person.

My parents planned their retirement location in 1952 and then 30 years later, they retired did they know?  I haven't even decided what I want to be when I grow up!! Let alone knowing where I want to retire in 20 years!! Do you know? Do any of you already have plans and even put the plan in action??

Well, bed is calling. Have a great weekend everyone.

New Interests

This past week I have been battling the flu. It's been miserable. My stomach and I are not on speaking terms and lets just say I am wishing this would end...NOW.

While I've been sitting here, watching TV and waiting for my next sprint to the loo...I've been searching the web for re-purposed and re-cycled crafts.

I used to do a lot of re-purposing when my kids were younger.  I made a wonderful snowman out of old white terry cloth and old pillows, a sweater my guys had grown out of, some felt, left over sequent s from another craft, an old knit hat and mitts. It was absolutely adorable it was stolen off the front porch.

I also painted an old chair with my kids favourite sayings, their names, Christmas stencils. Again too was stolen too. I really got the idea after that not to put things outside.

I'm going to get back into re-purposing. There are a few things I would like here in the house.  I think I will make them myself!

Wish me luck! I'll keep you posted.

Hmmm...It's been a long time...

It's been almost a year since I posted on my blog! How can that be? How can life get so busy that I get that far away from something I love so much? I haven't done any crafting in so long I actually feel withdrawal symptoms.

Lately I spend a little time each day looking through items of interest on the net and I pin them to my PinInterest account. I have noticed that as usual my interests vary and are vast.

So what has everyone been up to? We are still in Winnipeg where we are fortunate to claim a very mild (thus far) winter. Spring is on its way. The days are noticeably longer each night and the ground hog saw his shadow....early spring!! Woot! Woot!

Well, here's hoping I can get back in the habit of updating this blog. I have pulled down my store. There is no time for that any longer. I am hoping to get back into crafting again though.
