Last Chance... Stampin' Up! Retirement list now up!

Hi everyone...well it's been an anxious wait for some-but the retirement list is now up. It is quite a long list this year because of the new/changing colours, and also because it's been a longer than normal wait for the new catalogue. These changes make room for some new and exciting products/stamps in the new catalogue due out next month! Also super exciting is the fact that some of the products on this year's retiring list are discounted up to 50%!! So take a look and let me know if you'd like to place an order as these items tend to sell SUPER FAST!! Click here to view the list...

Photos From Canada

More photos to come...
Late nights and much fun result in flaking out on the lounge in the middle of dinner time.

The clan...and Grandma and Grandpa's sushi feast. Thanks for all the time and effort that goes into preparing such delicacies.

The National Art Gallery

If I am looking a bit nervous it is because there is a little Sami in the boat who can't seem to sit still, and thinks rocking the boat is heaps more fun!

Oratory of St. Joseph, Montreal

The RCMP ride

Here are some photos of our time away in Canada.

Shrink Art Jewelry

Home again after 5 weeks away visiting family in Ottawa... Samuel cried most of the way home (every time he remembered he was leaving his cousins behind)-Julia will miss them heaps as well.
Today Julia has her best friend, the lovely Sarah C. over-those two are inseparable! So I thought I'd get out the shrink art jewelry books that we brought back with us from Canada and play around with StazOn Ink/acrylic paint and my stamps and punches. Punches work really well with shrink art plastic. I made these cute little earrings for a sweet young lady... I also made this paper bead bracelet whilst away. You didn't think paper was that versatile now did you? When I get a chance, I am definitely trying out some more cute shrink art jewelry ideas.

P.S. I will post some pictures of our time away soon...there are many-they just need uploading
