Crepe Paper

I created two mini-albums for a friend and used crepe paper on some of the pages.  Very cute!!  Looks like little mini-grass skirts - I'm lovin' the look!

All Glittery and Sparkly!

Let's just say this lamp, which was supposed to go in my hallway, would look better in a 'as my friend Dawn says' in a French boudoir!!!
I think it would look nice in my Mother's B&B as she is all about the sparkle (wink, wink)!!!  Especially the disco balls!!  Thanks Dawn!!

I had loads of fun at class last night making this lamp.  Although I must confess that I drastically deviated from the class outline!  I was there for the company, the laughs and to learn how to make the 'base' for my lamp.
Thanks Stephanie!

Here are the pics, some better than others:

When do you know you are bored at work?

Your work is done, you have completed assignments due in two weeks, there's 45 minutes left til you're outta here.  What do you do??

It got to the point today where it was becoming a 'slit my wrists now' situation. 
So I grabbed me my scissors, 4 Post-It Notes, a pencil and my tape dispenser and went to town creating a Post-It paper rose.

This isn't my creation but I needed a picture so you would get the idea!!

My Two Men Album

This fabric album took alot of thought, a lot of looking at the different product pieces, and a lot of standing up and going away.  The fabric and paper is from Basic Grey's Blush line.  I guess my main problem was the pink in it and the flowers.
Excuse the graininess of the pictures, I think the camera is on holidays.  The pictures didn't turn out that well, but here goes:

Brandon O'Whiney

In honour of St. Patrick's Day which is right around the corner, we have given Marlo a new name.


Brandon O'Whiney and he's in action at his grandparents in Kingston!!

One of these days he's going to get a little cheese with that whine!!!!

Everything is ow, ow, ow.  This means I want a treat, I want another treat, I want, I need.......

But then again, he can be quite cute when he's facebooking his hottie friends.

What have I 'not' been up to?

It's been a long time since I have posted anything on my blog.  Shame on me!!!

I have taken some classes and have also scraplifted some projects based on these classes.

Here are a few pics as to what I have been doing:

This is a 7gypsies painters tray that I completed last Saturday.  I even made the flowers, leaves and stems!!

This lamp is for a class that I am taking Thursday, Febraury 25.  I wanted to make mine a bit different so I started by attaching butterflies.  I will post the final lamp next weekend.

I had taken a mini-album class and then scraplifted it to make a Christmas mini-album for Mom and my sisters.

This is an album I made in a class over a year ago.  I still love it and it remains one of my favourites.

I had made both of my younger sisters an acrylic album for Christmas of their two new men.  Unfortunately one sister thinks hers was accidently thrown away along with some gift certificates she also can't find.  I have made her a new one.  She doesn't know, or she might if she checks my blog!!!

I am working on other projects and I promise I will try and update my blog better than I have been!

Ta-ta for now!!
