Taking a Break!

I just wanted to let you know that I am taking a blogging break for the holiday season. Things at work are really hectic and I am not having a lot of time to spend in the craft room. I will be back in the new year, hopefully back to my regular daily posts. Have a great Christmas and a blessed New Year. See you in 2011!

Lest We Forget

As Canadians, we take this day, November 11th, every year, to remember those who have given their all so that we can have freedom. A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to ‘Canada’ for an amount of ‘up to and including my life.’

Flanders Fields Painting

A Pittance of Time – 2 minutes for the fallen soldiers. The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month:                         On November 11, 1999 Terry Kelly was in a drug store in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. At 10:55 AM an announcement came over the stores PA, asking customers who would still be on the premises at 11:00 AM to give two minutes of silence in respect to the veterans who have sacrificed so much for us. Terry was impressed with the stores leadership role in adopting the Legions two minutes of silence initiative. He felt that the stores contribution of educating the public to the importance of remembering was commendable. When eleven oclock arrived on that day, an announcement was again made asking for the two minutes of silence to commence. All customers, with the exception of a man who was accompanied by his young child, showed their respect.
Terrys anger towards the father for trying to engage the stores clerk in conversation and for setting a bad example for his child was channeled into a beautiful piece of work called, A Pittance of Time. Terry later recorded A Pittance of Time and included it on his full-length music CD, The Power of the Dream.
Thank You to the Royal Canadian Legion Todmorden Branch #10 and Woodbine Height Branch #2 for their participation in the Video.

All About Life

This is an accordion album I started making as a gift. But alas, I was not finished in time and had to go and buy the gift instead. That is alright, though, because it means I can keep the book for myself..tee hee. I used the CTMH 9x9 accordion album, Life’s Delights (retired) paper and stickers, and foundry frames.

Use Up My Scraps Round 1

I recently hosted a “Use Up My Scraps” swap. I sent the exact same scraps to 5 different people and kept some for myself. It is really interesting to see what different ideas six different minds comes up with. Here are the results from round one.
