Stampin' Good Time!


I've been having a great time creating page using acrylic stamps lately!

My favourite set is the Technique Tuesday "Whirly Gigs". Here's a page Ia created using the TT stamps. I used black ink on grey paper so the flourishes are subtle and subdued. I love the end product!

Aren't my boys cute????

I love you Todd and Spencer!!

Childhood Memories

Have you ever smelled something and all of a sudden a memory from times gone past enters your mind?

The other day I was making hot chocolate to warm myself up and the smell of the chocolately goodness reminded me of my maternal grandparents.

You see as children, we visited my grandparents at least once or twice a year. We would travel by train to Brockville where they would pick us up to drive home to Morrisburg. My grandparents owned a large property of land on the St. Lawrence River and they had built an indoor pool when they built their home there in the early 70's.

On a cold winter's evening, my sister Christie and I would always go for a swim in the pool just before bedtime. Once we dried off and we were in our PJ's we would sit at my grandmother's little round table in the kitchen and we would have warm hot chocolate in her blue pottery mugs and homemade cookies. The smell of hot chocolate always reminds me of that special time at my grandparent's home. It's funny.... I can almost smell it now!

Below is a picture of my grandmother with my son Spencer just before she passed away last fall.

Oh... the Weather Outside is Frightful....




It's COLD!!! Brrrrrr! And since I've been sick for the past 6 days, the cold weather outside make me want to stay in my pajama's all day!

With all that chilly weather, at least I've been able to make lots of time to scrap! I have completed 2 layouts today alone! I record for me!

I will post some pictures tomorrow when I can take natural light photos of my pages!

Grab a blankey and curl up on the couch today! Don't forget your hot beverage! Stay warm today!!!

Spencer.... Doin' Laundry!

Well, Todd and I were trying to get ready yesterday to go for a drive and Spencer was content to play in the living room as we got ready.

I took some clean and dry laundry out of the dryer and went about putting a new load of dirty clothes into the washing machine.

I manage get the dry clothes floaded and put away and I turn around and I hear this echoing sound....

I look around.... nothing.... hmmm..... "What's making that sound?" I wondered.

I look down the hallway towards the living room and there he is.....



He's inside the dryer.... just looking around!! Such a stinker!! But SOO cute!!
