SEW cool!!

Janome has generously agreed to giveaway a 4030 QDC sewing machine to the Scrapbook & Cards Today reader who can, in 100 words or less, convince us of why they MUST, absolutely have a new sewing machine to use on their papercrafting projects.

Did you, in a rush to get to your last crop, put your sewing machine in the back of your van and forget to close the hatch before driving away? Or, did your 5 year old attempt to sew a new dress for Barbie—while Barbie was wearing it? C’mon sewers, this is your chance to get share your most embarrassing story—well one that involves a needle and thread that is! Please send all entries to ideas@scrapbookandcards.com and put “Janome contest” in the subject line.

Home at Last!

Good morning all!

We proceed from Williston, North Dakota yesterday morning and arrived in Lethbridge, Alberta at 4pm.

We got a wonderful surprise when we got there.... Todd came to see us!!!

We said a short but tearful goodbye to Mom as we ended up going home with Todd last night. My Mom flew from Lethbridge to Calgary and then on home this morning. I'm SO thankful we left with Todd when we did.... the roads are scary at night time for a person never been down them before.

We crossed into the mountains as the sun sank behind them and arrived in our new home at 7:30pm.

We living with minimal furnishings and kitchen items as our belongings have to yet to arrive. They may come as early as today but are "supposed" to come tomorrow. It would be nice to have my cooler weather clothes and out regular bed.

Hope you're having a great day!


Going home .... day three!

Day number two came and went yesterday. We made great progress. We made it from St. Ignace, Michigan to Bemedji, Minnesota. (about 850km)

Today we reached Williston, North Dakota. We are within miles of the Montana border and only about 1000km from home now.

Our aim tomorrow is make Lethbridge (820km) from here.

We have travel about 2300 km so far in the last 3 days.

Wish us luck!


Going home....

Howdy everyone!!!

I'm shoutin' out to you all from St. Ignace, Michigan.

We left for our new BC home at 9:30am this morning and have made it to the Mackinaw bridge tonight.

Wish us luck as we still have at least 2 more days of travel, maybe more.
