It's been a fun and interesting weekend. I worked at the scrapbook store on Friday. Then on Friday night Bevan and I went to get some groceries and then stopped at Pizza Delight for yummy desert! I had the brownie skillet (a brownie warmed on a skillet in the oven, topped with french vanilla ice cream and whipped cream, YUM!!) and Bevan had the apple skillet (the same as above with apple crisp instead of a brownie.)
On Saturday, Carolyn had a Christmas open house at the scrapbook store. It was loads of fun, lots of people stopped by to make cards and tags and take advantage of a great sale!! We had apple cider and coffee and cookies. Then I went to Pizza Delight with Carolyn and Michelle for lunch. I should own shares in that place!! On Saturday afternoon, Bevan and I went to Charlottetown. I got some ideas for Christmas gifts and I bought a sweet Napolean Dynamite talking keychain. I had every intention to give it to someone as a gift, but then decided no one else could possibly enjoy it as much as I do!!
At 5 this morning Bevan and I were both wide awake for some strange reason. We got up, got a drink, went back to bed and put the Elf DVD in. I totally forgot how much I loved that movie. It's definetly a holiday favorite. Today (Sunday) I got up and watched my 2 1/2 hours of Coronation Street. Then we put together the new shelf I bought for my scrapbooking room. And this afternoon we went to the grocery store!! Today is the first of 4 Sundays before Christmas when we have Sunday shopping here on PEI. It's great, I wish we had it year round. After that we came home and super cleaned out the fridge and then made homemade pizza. Then we found Babes in Toyland on TV!!! It was one of Mel and my favorite movies when we were young. In case you've never seen it, it has Keanu Reeves, Drew Barrymore and a couple of other relatively unknown actors. It's such a great movie. During the movie we put up some Christmas decorations and made apple cider.
I guess all in all it's been a really good weekend. We were pretty busy and I still have TONS to do before I'm ready to go home. Guess I better go and actually get some stuff done!!

Supper - great - casserole with macaroni, spaghetti sauce, sausage, cheese, mushrooms. It was super yummy.
The Sopranos - the end of season 5 was awesome. Who'd have guessed that Adrianna gets whacked?? Well, I guess I kind of figured she did, since she's now on Joey!!
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - WOW. I'm always amazed at how much I can enjoy a movie meant for children, although frankly, I'm not sure this one was very children oriented, I was pretty freaked out at some parts.
Coronation Street and Coffee - Great as usual. I do, however, miss the summer Sundays when Coronation Street was on for like 5 full hours. We're back to 2 1/2 now.
Waffles for breakfast - didn't have them!! We had cheese scones, chicken bacon, and hashbrowns instead. Still great though!!
I did make some more Christmas cards as well, and I'm still working on more - so far so good.
I just checked out Bevan's blog, too. He made me laugh so hard I almost cried. I'd like to thank the desperate house husband for the entertainment. I promise I'll check in more often.

Well, I suppose it had to happen sometime, but I wouldn't have minded if it didn't!! It's snowing!!! There have been flurries a couple of mornings already, but never enough to stay on the ground. Well, now it's sticking around. YUCK!!! I don't love the snow.
I've been busy the last week or so. I made some cards to sell at the Three Oaks Craft Fair. I've been trying to get my scrapbooking room clean and organized (yes, again!!). And I've been trying to complete some of my CKU projects. Things are slowly getting done. All I can say is thank goodness for Bevan being the bestest boyfriend ever and doing soooo much housework!!! He cooks, he cleans, he does laundry - you've gotta love him!!
I only have 10 days of work left before I go on vacation for an entire month. I'm very excited about it. Mostly because Mel's coming home from Australia, where she's been for the last 9 months. Also because, for me, it's never really Christmas until I'm done of work or school. So this year Christmas gets to last a whole month!!!! Yay.
Anyways, it's late, I'm gonna go to bed now.

- what TV shows I like to watch
- what pets I have right now
- my favorite restaurant
- my current address
- the name and address of my workplace
Basically, I just think it's important to add in things that right now seem like not such a big deal, but in 20 years I probably won't remember!! I guess that's the whole concept of the album, isn't it!!
Second thing I need to mention is that I really need to work on this organization thing. I've been losing things left and right lately. I always put things in places where they are "safe" and then, of course, forget where that safe spot is!! Anyways, now that things are slowing down a little bit I promise to be more organized!! So that's what I'm going to do right now, re-organize my trashed scrapbooking room!!

I'm slowly getting my scrapbooking room put back together, but I'm soooo out of room in there it's not even funny. It was pretty much filled to capacity before I went away and I came back with a huge suitcase filled with new scrapbooking stuff, so you can only imagine!! I'm not putting my projects away until I have them finished. I worked on a couple of pages for my favorite things album last night. I got to play with the acrylic paint I got from my secret sister, Lori Sudberry. I've started reorganizing my ribbon collection (which has grown by about 75 yards in the last week!!!) I've had some of my sister's scrapbooking stuff since she's been in Australia and I'll be sending that home with my parents next weekend so that will give me a tiny bit more room. She's coming home a month from tomorrow. I can't wait to see her, she's been gone for 9 months now.

Well, I've really slacked off on this blog thing for the last couple of months. I guess I'll blame it on being busy with Close to my Heart gatherings and getting ready for CKU. But now I'm back and I just want to share!! First of all, I can't tell you what a GREAT trip I had. My first time flying went well. Flying into NYC was awesome. We flew right over Manhattan - wow!!! Got to the Westin in Stamford, CT. CKU was a whirlwind of activity. I've never done soooo much scrapbooking in such a short period of time. I've come home with soooo many incomplete projects, guess I have lots to work on in the coming months!! We went to NYC on Sunday morning. Our hotel was RIGHT in the middle of Times Square (we stayed at the Double Tree). And we lucked out because most of 7th Avenue was blocked off for a street market. All of the vendors were there selling scarves, purses, souveniers. It was perfect. Then we went to lunch at Planet Hollywood. We walked around and saw Radio City Music Hall, Rockafeller Center, Trump Tower, and Tiffany's (yes, we actually went inside!!). Then we took a cab to Ground Zero. We had a great cab driver who was a great tour guide. Next we went back to the hotel and then out to supper at Tavern on the Green. Then it was off to Stomp. What a great show. We were in the second row, and was it ever dusty there!! Then back to Times Square to take in the night sights!! I guess I'll post more over the next couple of days, off to work now!!
