Mother’s Day

I am so thankful for all the things that my mother taught me as I was growing up and she continued to teach me as I raised my own family.  She has been gone for over a year now and I still want to go to the phone to share some new experience with her.  We were often apart as I lived in various parts of Canada but I always knew she was waiting to hear from me.  In the early years we kept in touch through letter writing and as long distance phoning became more affordable to keep in touch with phone calls.  I really miss that contact. She had an opinion on everything and I miss that input.  It’s hard to let go of someone who is so special.   Thanks mom.


On the road again.

I love to travel and we are on the road again.  This morning we packed up the car and set out for Ottawa.  I slept the whole way so didn’t see much of New Brunswick.  We got as far a Edmonston and after a supper at Boston Pizza we settled into our room at the Quality Inn.  I have spent the evening so far making mirror and felt embellishments for a scrapbooking swap that I am in.  It is nice to be away from home and have time to do crafts, without feeling there is housework that needs to be done.  I look forward to traveling through  Quebec tomorrow.

Well here it is Friday and I still haven’t found anywhere to go tomorrow for National Scrapbook Day.  I did find two very interesting online challenges though.  I think I will join them.

One is a mystery challenge on CK.  Each day this week, they have been giving out lists of products to get together and what photos to print etc.  I just about have everything together for that one.

Today I found on online crop that will be going on at the Creative Crafts and Stickers blog.  It looks like Jen has a great time planned.
