Crochet Bag

It is finally finished. My multi-colored crochet bag made with a pattern from Attic24. I also found the pattern for the flower embellishments here as well.

I really liked the muted colors Attic24 used in her bags. I would like to make another bag in slightly muted colors next. For this bag, I just used the colors I had on hand.

Easter Surprise

I just had to show the great Easter gift I got from my father-in-law. He is very crafty in his own right. He seems to know exactly what I like!

We hung the window frame in the garden and about 5 minutes later, the birds were all over it.

The wreath is hung by the front door. I love the way he is able to see little odds and ends like door closures, keys, hooks, locks etc and turn them into perches and decorations for his birdhouses and benches.

Thanks Father In Law!

A Nice Surprise!

Last weekend I found a nice surprise on my front steps. Hubby and I got back from our spring break and there was a plastic bag filled with some cool vinyl on my front steps. These records (picked up at Vee Village) were accompanied by a sweet card made by one of my favourite rubber stampers, Boom Boom (my pet name for her!). Boom Boom is very sweet and kind and often leaves little surprises on my front steps. She seems to have a radar that let's her know when to leave these surprises because they always seem to come when I need a pick me up!

Thanks Boom Boom! I'm going to party like it's 1999! I may even back comb my hair!

Life In The Desert

Hubby and I visited the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument while in Arizona. It is basically right on the border of Mexico. We went on a self guided tour of the park and took some pictures of the various plant life in the park. The desert was amazingly alive with color and life. Just wanted to share some of the pictures.

Reuseable Swiffer Cloths, Wayne Gretzky and The Grand Canyon

Well I sure enjoyed my spring break. The hubby and I flew down to Phoenix, Arizona. Spent a few days in Phoenix then drove up to The Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and Mesa Verde. We even saw Wayne Gretzky at the Coyotes game. It was a great get away.

While driving across the great state of Arizona, I whipped up three more swiffer covers. One is on it's way to Stewart Valley, SK for my uncle's wife. The other two are for the people who commented on my original swiffer post.

One more to make for my friend Hank in Altona. I'll start it this weekend.

I'm back!

...and enjoying the last day of spring break!

While on spring break I finished up three more swiffer covers. They are ready to be handed out to the people who commented on my swiffer blog post.

I'll post some pics later today!
