So Hubby did not want to attend; he had to be convinced. I think he had a good time once we got there! He looks especially good with the flowers below. I had received a beautiful shawl from a girlfriend and it was perfect for my sleeveless dress - it is still cold here and snowy outside so I was being rather brave wearing a sleeveless dress. We pray that Aunt Louise and our new Uncle Bill will have a wonderful marriage together and that God will Bless this union.

This room is now done except for the trim work around windows and baseboards - those will be in white. I have moved in my crafts for scrapbooking and cardmaking. I love the cupboards we salvaged from our local drugstore - they were renovating and throwing these in the garbage. How terrible! We got these plus about ten more free. I may eventually paint them white although they look pretty good in the light grey color. All of the drawers have full extension slides too and they are heavy duty so can take a big load. I can't wait to actually do some crafts in there.
I have finished making all my doors and some have been installed. I love the look of the ribbed glass. Now just have to find some knobs and handles in a matt black. Hubby still has to finish building some upper boxes and install all the drawer fronts. It took a whole day and then some to make all of the drawers for the kitchen, back entry and bathrooms - 30 in total. Think I should have enough storage!

I attended a scrapbooking retreat recently and had fun catching up with some scrapbooking pages, and also making some more cards. One of my projects was making the Valentine box. I plan to make a few more of these to hand out on Sunday. I tried some new techniques in scrapbooking also using cardboard cut-outs as in the word "Fall". I traced them onto the paper, cut out the paper and glued to the letters. Then I sponged the edges with brown ink. I love the effect. Also took a piece of 12x12 paper and cut leaves out of it since I could not purchase leaves by themselves. A bit tedious but the outcome looked good. Still have to finish the journalling as I usually journal on the computer. Can't wait to get my craft room up and running. Hubby is already worried he will never see me again!

Now the snow keeps coming but it is so beautiful that I don't even mind. Hubby finally had to do some yard clearing with the bobcat and our tractor both at home and at the shop. Since this is at a resort, the snowmobile crowd will be happy and there will be lots of powder to try out this week-end. Maybe the Olympics should be moved here or we could ship the snow to Vancouver!
