nadya & kelly purkeyThe day after the storm I drove to Crop & Create in Markham to take a class with awesome Ms Kelly Purkey. I had not scrapped in a while, so it was nice to plunge in and learn some new techniques.

Outside my kitchen window. This is Howard, our resident woodpecker. He & Beth his wife don’t mind my camera at the kitchen sink. But our bigger set of woodpeckers, Fred & Ginger are easily spooked.

Major snow day today. Love it. Until I have to drive tomorrow…

All white outside, but colour blooming on the canvas.

Waiting for Baby G…

My niece Mrs G is expecting her first baby. Not to say she will have more — or not. Remember having a baby? You’re still walking funny and people are asking when you plan on having the second!! I am assuming her close mommy friends have already prepared her for the onslaught of unsolicited advice and backseat parenting she will receive when Baby G makes his or her appearance next week.

When I finally began to sort through the mountain of to-be recycling, I squealed. My kids came running — “another bear?!” [That’s another story for another day.]

I knew Miss Know-It-All was mind-reading because she caught my eye with a sympathetic look. The more pages I turned, the more anxious I became. Then BINGO, page 109 and my canvas took up the WHOLE PAGE! Paris

We admired the page, there was a round of hugs given, and then everyone went back to their day. Me too, except with a huge perma-grin on my face!
