Had a blast at Al’s daughter’s house for a Halloween party. Julie outdid herself with the decorations as you will see.
Urggggg, I’ve got a lass who can read fortunes. Those who had their fortunes read were told they had a short life span and they were going to die, then I ran my sword through them!
All the gold and jewellry a pirate can hold.
What was left of one trick or treater.
Going to sea mate?
Taking this lass out to sea.
The wolf coming the rescue
Urggg. It’s out to sea with you. Bring the drink.
Watch out for scurvy about the ship.
Gasp! I moved into my new apartment a year ago and it never got organized properly. So, for my birthday I said to my son, Adam, “I know what you can give me for my birthday that won’t cost you a penny–help me with my studio organization.” He quickly agreed so I thought that was that. Well, he came over yesterday and came with a card and a Michael’s gift card–the little stinker.
As luck would have it, there was a one day sale at Michael’s yesterday where all storage units and containers were 50% off, so first thing in the morning I roped Al into joining me on my excursion because I knew I’d need a second set of hands to carry everything I
needed wanted to buy. I bought $200 worth of containers and a 12 x 12 paper holder and spent only $45 (I had a $50 gift card from my girlfriend for my birthday). What a score! I love a bargain, don’t you?!
Ugh! Where is my desk? See that fat binder in the middle of my desk? That hold every issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter ever published. It’s my bible. I cut apart my issues and inserted each page in a page protector.
Now do you want to see the new space?……..
Sure I have a lot of
crap must have items, but I use it all. Doesn’t it look so good? My office feels so big now.
Adam warned me he’s coming over to make sure I have kept things clean, and I promised him that I would. Adam even got out the furniture polish and scolded me as I was just trying to blow off the dust on my office desk. He even used an air can on my keyboard to get it all cleaned, and I took a baby wipe to it.
Thanks for hanging in there for my long post. Have yourself a fabulous day!
I don’t share personal photos very often but I wanted to share this photo with you. This is my darling Al who supports my stamping addiction. Whenever I talk to him about giving up stamping, he puts that talk to a halt–LOL. So, this is the man that keep me accountable to stamping, working out at the gym, walking outside in the park, making homemade perogies (which we are becoming known for by family and friends), and keeps me grounded but most of all helps me with my depression.
We are having an abnormally warm autumn this year. No winter jackets just yet.
Have a great weekend!
Oh happy day! Look what I won from Hetty at Craft Chaos. It was such a delight to win coffee stickers and Hetty’s beautiful card. I LOVE owls and anything coffee just like Hetty. Her owl stamp is from Michael Strong. I love how she tucked the coffee cup under the wing of the owl. The background is so beautiful too.
Thanks Hetty. You made my day!
As promised here are some photos of my stamp room. I promise to keep it clean!
An overview of the room
Storage cubicles on top of my desk for all those little things I need to have on hand.
See my clean work space?
I labelled my Stampn’ Up! sets. These are all that are out because I lack storage space. I have many more SU sets in a Rubbermaid tote in the closet.
I store my unmounted stamps in clear plastic containers and keep them separated by company.
My wood stamps are stored in clear plastic containers that are made especially for storing rubberstamps.
That’s it in a nutshell. Now I challenge you to posting your stamp room and linking them up for me to see.
I have never seen a cruise ship cruise down the St. Clair River towards Lake St. Clair before. I rushed in from my walk to pull out my camera with the telephoto lens on so I could get a good photo.
The cruise ship is about to go under the Bluewater Bridge (it separates Canada and the US) to Lake St. Clair. I feel so blessed to live in the apartment I do. It’s full of surprises.
Hello there. Have you tried to Zentangle yet? It is so fun. My girlfriend “tangled” my inchies while I “tangled” my puppy using the Zen Stamping technique from the February 2012 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter.
I’m all settled into my new apartment and have a couple of photos to share with you.
The view from my North facing balcony. I have an East facing balcony as well. I live in Canada, and across the water you will see Port Huron, Michigan in the United States. As you can see, there is a walking path along the river. It is quite large so I can get a lot of exercise in.
My cute little livingroom. Don’t you just love my funky green chairs? I painted the poppy painting.
My dining area with my pub height table and chairs, again in a funky green
My stamp room. It’s quite large, you just can’t tell from the photo. I’m lucky and have a balcony off my room.

Al, my cook, barbecuing us some supper.
I live right downtown and work only 2 KM away (about 1 mile). It’s great living downtown. I can walk to the post office, library and all the cute little shops. I’m an avid reader and am so happy that I can walk to the main library.
I hope you are having a good weekend. I’m working but get next weekend off.
Merry Christmas to you and your family. May you have a wonderful time with your loved ones.
Look what my co-worker tucked on top of my purse yesterday. When I picked it up to ooohh and aaahh, Pam said that “someone” once complimented her on her shawl and she wanted “her” to have it. I told her I was being nosy because the colours really attracted me and it was something handmade. Pam surprised me when she said it was mine. She is so generous to give me such a beautiful handmade (her first crochet project) gift.
It will be well used as I keep the heat way up at work and hear, “Beth is working again.” LOL. Now I have something beautiful to wear to keep me warm. And Pam is so right–they are just my colours. Thank you Pam!
Happy December! Can you believe it’s already December? Are you ready for the holidays? I know I am. I started my Christmas baking and hope to do some more this week before I go to work for 3-11.
My 18 co-workers are in for a surprise this year as I knitted everyone a large dishcloth and completed the look by wrapping them in red and green ribbon, and adding a tag. On the back of the tag is stamped “made by Beth.” The Merry Christmas stamp you see is from Hot Off The Press.
My co-workers have been buying dishcloths to give away at Christmas. I calculated the number of dishcloths I made and so far I’m on my 60th dishcloth.
Do you make crafts for your co-workers and friends?
