That is indeed terrible news! So sorry! I hadn't heard, as I was too busy trying to keep track of the riot news in
Toronto, seeing as my DD was in the thick of things there, busy photographing everything!

Hey Ladies

Just finally got caught up in this thread from where I last left off! I've been extremely busy these last couple weeks looking for a f/t job, working the p/t job(s) (Cake decorating and Provo Craft Demo @ Michaels) Signing up to SU!, building a fence & deck @ our home and working on swaps! (that's the short version!)

Have you guys heard anymore about the cottages? I may be interested if it's cost effective (Can't sell the BF on a retreat without money coming in ) And I still have to meet you lovely ladies LOL

Michelle, your room is GORGEOUS!!! I would love to spend the day in there LOL. I am stamping in my unfinished basement (The joys of a brand new home lol) and when we finish it (5+ years!!) Then I'll convert the guest bedroom fully into my own personalized space! Tough luck for the guests haha (I'm thinking of holding Card Classes so there is more space in the basement then bedroom but I'll figure that out in the future if I'm still holding Card Classes!)

So that's my story!

Hope you all have been well!

She's fine! She made a narrow escape though. The police were clearing the street and everyone was in rapid retreat, but somehow DD was still taking a photo and ended up being about 15 feet from the line of fast approaching police and someone pulled her into a restaurant door and closed the door quickly behind her. After that, she got off the street and photographed from a roof top.

Hey Everyone....just caught up too!
Good luck on your interview Wednesday Jukie...I'm sure you will ace it!

Sorry to hear about that drowning Janet! So tragic when someone so young is taken...long before they really live.

Diana...Don't you need a nanny for the cottage?! LOL
where is this one? Surprised that you found one that would rent to you for less than a full week! Maybe we can use the same one for our thing in early Sept?! That cottage lady has not gotten back to me yet, but maybe she is busy with summer rentals....high season now!
I would like to keep the cottage rental price under $100 (per person) if possible. Then we will just need gas money and groceries....and maybe some cash for extra craft supplies if you'd like!

I didn't hear about it either..probably because everything on TV these days are about the G20 protesters...That is really sad..I'm sorry to hear that too...

Katrina's friend from grade school jumped off the Markham Rd & 407 bridge 2 weeks ago...apparently was still alive but died before police came...she started screaming at 3 in the morning...scared me half to death!

Hi Dion!

I actually live in my room now...all I need is a little bar fridge and I'm good to go...lol....It took forever to finally convince DH that I needed this space for myself...he up and said one day a few months ago..." I think we should get the back room made up for you" So I had him elaborate on what he meant...I didn't argue and allowed him to mull over what he just said. The next thing I knew he was suggesting on how to set up the room and what to move where So YA! I'm friggin in happy land right now...I've been making cards but nothing too creative just because it's been awhile...Slowly getting my Mojo back

So the Starbucks that got trashed on Queen St. was directly across the street from the Second Cup that some friends own and they told me that the protesters trashed Starbucks and then went into their shop for a coffee!!!! Can you believe that....LOL...OMG!

Hey People....I heard from the "cottage lady" finally! This is what she sent me...

"Hello, Yes we do have availability in September for a three day girls weekend. We also have a big table you could use to work
Please let me know which dates you are looking at and we can go from there. . . "

I replied to her asking what the price would be for the weekend of Sept 18th....after the kids start back to school.
Any thoughts?

Good point Teresa, a lot of places don't even rent then because they are not all season cottages...but worth a shot. Secretly I am hoping that September is as nice as May and June have been....that way we can actually be outside too, maybe even go to the beach for a crafty break!

Good morning peeps!!! Hope everyone had a great Canada yesterday and got to enjoy some fireworks.

Today is a chill day at home for us.

Fortunately, I have my kids trained to LET ME STAMP when I want to, so I can still have a little bit of sanity in my day.

I've had a quick peek at the new catty and there are some really great stamps! Don't care for the new 'in colors' though!

Ina!!!! Your team is in! What a great game it was.

As for the new "In Colours", you really need to see them in person. They're REALLY pretty!

Hello ladies... I was just made aware of your group here and thought I would post my swap here....hope some of you will want to join! I look forward to reading up when I have the time (being the only working person in my household and working 5 part time jobs is not leaving me much "down" time).....I am from Southern Ontario Canada, mother of two teenagers, one boy, one girl...my husband has not worked in two years due to an accident at work which left him badly hurt and nearly an amputated left hand, I love to scrapbook, make cards, read and spend time with my family and my beloved pug when I have the time...I work with special needs children and adults, and love every minute of it...I find it very rewarding and educating!

Well I am enjoying my last few days as a 'kept woman' lol! you know the score cleaning, cooking, sorting, washing, drying........ So I have escaped down into my 'Retreat' to well retreat, relax and make a card or two. I had a jiggle about in my room (I didn't physically jiggle, well maybe my love handles did) but I moved furniture around, as I didn't feel I was making the most my space, I don't think it is quite right yet but I would say it is not far off.

I am so looking forward to working, and the job is full of challenges that I can't wait to sink my teeth into, but already I can hear my feet crying.....you want us to wear proper shoes....after nearly a year of comfy slippers and slip on flip flops!

OK off to make a card or two, have a great day!

Jukie

I think we should get the back room made up for you" So I had him elaborate on what he meant...I didn't argue and allowed him to mull over what he just said. The next thing I knew he was suggesting on how to set up the room and what to move where So YA! I'm friggin in happy land right now...I've been making cards but nothing too creative just because it's been awhile...Slowly getting my Mojo back
LOL too funny! I have the bar fridge I can lend you. It's not doing too much in our office now that we both have laptops and are on the comps from the couch!
Nice! Don't you love it when our other halves let us have our own space! Your story is somewhat like mine. I had my stuff set up in our Guest Room prior to Christmas (We moved in last Feb) so I took over that room but was "annoyed" when we had guest over and I had to keep cleaning and clearing out my stuff. So dbf suggested I take over a portion of the unfinished basement. I said no way at first because it's unfinished and gloomy looking but then he started making points that were too good to pass up (Alot of my scrappin' stuff and photos and what not is already down there, the added space ect.) so I was like fine! but you're helping me carry everything down there. So after the holidays I set up shop down there with 2 8ft tables (Instead of the 1 upstairs!) and made him put up some shelving for me and I've been putting up cards as inspiration on the plastic over the insulation to make it more colourful LOL I just bought some paper racks and it's looking great!!!

So I asked what happens to me when we finish the basement (I was supposed to get a craft room built but I decided against it as it would be a closet and our basement layout is better without it for what we want to do with it) Then he suggested I take over the guest room again. We'll be removing the bed and the tv unit up there and he says I can go to town!! I am excited!

Congrats Jukie!!! I'm still job hunting... Seems like no one is hiring over the summer

I think I missed it somewhere, but were are you guys looking at renting the cottage? And how many in total are you looking at getting to go? I know of some cottage places in Niagara and Wasaga but I'm not sure if you need help with the search and/or what you are looking for.

I'm with ya Ina. The new in-colours are meh. (Although I do like them better then the regals collection... I am a bold brights and subtles fan!!) I'm sure they will pair up nicely with the other colours though

Hi Cogghe! I am definitely in your swap! I loveee the theme!

Hope all of your Canada Day and long weekend was well. I had 3 huge cake/cupcake orders for Thursday (Small side biz.) and a wedding on Thursday in Brampton. Friday we had gone over to a friends for a bbq and games night. Saturday, the boyfriend and I went to an awesome spa for a couples massage and used the hot tub! Then we went shopping and relaxed. Today I've cleaned the house and the backyard as we're having friends over for a bbq and some wii-fun I'm crossing my fingers that next week is a slower week as I was just crazy busy!!!

Oh and I got a $300 speeding ticket... I have to fight it as I wasn't going as fast as I was ticketed - I think he radar'ed the guy in front of me and got me for it. Anyone use legal services like X-Copper to get out of a ticket/Have it reduced significantly? I have a clear record and now it's tarnished with this insane charge!! Ughhh this is a nightmare for me!

BUT! we needed other stuff and well it was no a go.... OH WELL! Then we went into Canada Computers and we were looking at LCD screens with cable inputs...? So I asked what for, pretending like I'm dumb...lol..he said you need a better TV for your room. I was like....Hmmm okay...who am I to argue. So we left and I ask him "what is it that you want" he looked at me and asked "what do you mean" and I said "wll your being awfully nice about making my new craft room comfortable for me...just wondering what you want or better yet WHAT DID YOU DO!!!!????" LOL. He said with a guilty frown "I didn't do anything...I was just thinking about you..." Okay so this is an Aweee moment right...? A Half hour later...of course!! an obscene request comes out of his mouth!!! I Laughed So hard...I knew it was too good to be true...lol...Ahhhh got love em I guess..lol....

My funny weekend bit...


I wanted to get more shelving though from Ikea..maybe the billy line...just because you could out doors and even buy extra shelves if needed..I also need an nice wooden fold out table for my sewing machine...I need get back into practice with my sewing skills on cards...
