Gift Idea & Weekend Retreat

I put together this frame that could be used as a Mother's/Father's Day Gift. If anyone is interested in this frame, let me know. The cost is $20.00. If you have a picture that can be emailed - I will print it for you and add it to the frame. If you are looking for a different colour combo - let me know and I can see what I can do.

Tonight I am getting ready for a weekend away with my scrappy friends. Definitely looking forward to it. I have never been away for a whole weekend of scrapbooking so we will see how much I can get done. I have my pictures printed and some of my supplies ready. I will be busy tonight finishing up my preparations.

Soccer starts tomorrow and we are in the throws of dance recital preparations. Thanks to Andy for taking over this weekend.

Ready to Go

to Scrapfest that is and the sweeet straps are done. All 115 of them. I am so excited to have them finished and so excited to see what people think of them. The colours are so pretty and I love the combinations of fabrics. I am a scrapbooker at heart but this was a fun distraction from paper. My mom has been a huge help and the little people have helped as well. If you are going to Scrapfest, make sure you stop by the GO Scrapping booth to say hi! Here is a sneak peek of the straps.

If you see one you like, leave me a comment and I will put it aside.

Looking forward to seeing all my scrappy friends tomorrow - 1 sleep left.

In honour of the Maple Syrup festival this weekend, the kids and I had pancakes with homemade maple syrup this morning for breakfast. How did we make the syrup? We tapped our maple tree in the front yard and boiled the sap last night to make the syrup. The kids have been so excited tapping the tree and then watching the sap. The first batch turned into maple taffy. Andy is the syrup chef - he let the first batch go a little too long but yesterday he was successful and sap turned into sugary goodness. With one maple tree in our front yard we won't be making enough for the year or the month for that matter but it was a fun experience for the kids. How is that for 10 metre diet!!!

Today for the PD Day we will be going to Dana Shortt Gourmet to support her bake sale with the profits going to Kidsability. The kids made some signs to try and draw people into the store. It is our family's charity of choice seeing as both the kids benefitted from their services. If you are in the area, drop by, I am sure Dana will have lots of yummy goodness. We may even stop by Conestoga mall to see a little Eric Traplin this afternoon.

Enjoy your rainy Friday!
