Update, finally, I know

So much has happened since I last updated too long ago.
I work at our local craft store now, Craft Nook. What a great store it is. They even have their own blog as well. craftnook.blogspot.com Check it out !
I no longer sell Stampin' Up! I haven't sold it for quite a while. It just got to the point where I couldn't afford my monthly minimums.
We still own our own business and it's doing ok. It's late winter right now so it's our "down" time and it's not very busy at all. Come September, we'll be so busy we won't know if we're coming or going. LOL
I do still scrapbook and make cards although I don't usually do any of this at home anymore. I usually just do all my paper crafting at the Craft Nook Weekend Crops. Too many other things to keep me busy at home at the moment.

Blue Christmas ....

Well, here's my first card (on my blog) for a long time ! I guess I just had lots going on, or at least that's the excuse I keep telling myself LOL! After some nudging from some really great friends I decided nows the time to catch up a bit.
Not much has happened really. We had a good start to the school year. Jonah's in s/k and Matthews's in grade 7 and loving it .... NOT ! LOL Just kidding, they like it okay. They're both doing well with their teachers, thank goodness.
We enjoyed a great Christmas, 2 actually. The first with Craig's side of the family on Christmas day then my side of the family on boxing day. Nice to spend time with family.
Tomorrow night we'll have our closest friends over for a small New Year's Eve bash. We're all excited.

A polaroid a day til ......

I was listening to cbc radio today (radio station listened to all across Canada) and they had a story about someone who took one picture a day for 18 years. His story is quite interesting. He started to capture a polaroid a day in March 1979, the pictures stopped in October 1997 (he passed away at 41). Here is a link to the pictures http://photooftheday.hughcrawford.com/The photographer is Jamie Livingston. The blogger is Hugh Crawford. A man named Chris Higgins found the pictures on the internet (by accident). As you can see (on the 1st link just above) there is no information on the site at all, just pictures. So Chris wanted to know who this was etc. So he investigated. Here is a link to Chris's story and what he found out about the photgrapher (Jamie). http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/15131 I thought you might find it interesting. It's neat to see someone who has "documented" his life with pictures. It's too bad he isn't here to write a post with every picture.
The picture I've posted above is from October 1997, he and his fiance were married shortly after.
