Tonight I had to try out my new workspace. After clearing room (still organizing), I was able to complete a card. This is the first scene I've tackled. Masking and inking. My truck was stamped on a separate piece of white, colored and fancy cut. Attaching with foam adhesive.

Good afternoon everyone. I managed to spend a bit of time this morning at my craft table. Needing to make a sympathy card for a former co-worker. Rob was from my A&P/Metro days. He and his wife both worked there. Rob retired two and a half years ago when I left, and Sue stayed on, finally leaving the first of the year when they changed the store to a Food Basics. Alot of good memories. So miss all the staff. Most of them had been with the company since it was Dominion, so long ago now.
Had to go pick up my daughter from school at lunch. Another bug making it's way aroung the school. We're just sittin relaxing watching The Librarians before I have to go to work. Another late night.

About two months ago a girl at work found out she was pregnant. So of course I started crotching right away. Well, I really had to work fast because the week after she found out her great news was her first ultra sound. Only to find out that she had two weeks to delivery. That was it, she was done work and rushing to prepare for baby.
I managed to finish (but not before baby was born) a sweater and blanket.
Here is the card I made. It felt so good to sit at my desk and finish a card. I am finding it very hard to get back down to my craft area and get anything completed.
One last thing. My thoughts today have been for all the people from Fort McMurray. The devastating fires have forced the evacuation of the entire town. Learning last night that family members were packing up and heading out. To find out this morning they were safe. Such great news to wake up to. I just could not image having to go through that. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire town. Be safe.

Good evening everyone. It's been so long since I've completed a card that I'm starting to go through withdrawl. I've been lurking card sites the past couple weeks, just itching to do some coloring and glueing. My supplies are getting pretty lonely. The Christmas tree was in my craft space (where my new craft area will be someday), so when we took it down I decided to make a makeshift counter. Using the top of an old computer desk we tore apart, set on two upright draw units, filled with crating supplies. Because storage space will be limited I have to really condense my mess. So tonights project is reorganizing my button stash out of the nice jam jars, into a compact divided unit.
Well, back to work. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Happy New Year to all my blog friends, near and far. I have had such a busy year. My new job is taking up 4-5 days a week. Cutting down on my craft time a whole lot. I have managed to make a crocheted blanket for my daughter for Christmas. She once told me not to make anything for her, but once I saw the Tardis blanket I knew she would like it. And I was right. We did have a great Christmas. I love days when all four of us are home. Even if we aren't doing things together we are still in the house together.
New years was a little more relaxing. I had three days off. Not looking forward to going back to work tomorrow. Today hubbie and I went for a snowshoe. We both got new snowshoes for Christmas, but since we had a green Christmas we were unable to use them till this week. It started snowing a few days ago, and now it doesn't know to stop. It was a short trek through our trail in the bush. The puppy (Maxwell) came with us. He loves to play in the snow, running off the trail into the deep snow through the trees. When we got back to the house Max was covered in big snowballs. He wasn't impressed when I pulled them off. And even less impressed when he went into his crate to dry off.
I'm signing off now. Watching a couple more episodes of the marathon of The Big Bang. We have been watching it for days.

Off I go to watch Sailor Moon with my 16 year old daughter. She can't believe she found it at Walmart today.
