Having Fun With Mod Podge

Afternoon all my blogging friends.  Here I am on Sunday afternoon, starting my second week of holidays.  Last week was so much fun for us.  We took a four day family vacation to Ottawa.  What a great time we had.  So much walking.  There are so many sights to see, you just can't take them all in.  We did manage to see the Spark St, War Museum, Byward Market, Rideau Centre.  On our last day we had headed out to the Aviation Museum where there was a Star Wars Exhibition.  When we arrived we were parked way out in the overflow parking, and none of us wanted to fight large crowds.  So we opted for shopping at a costume store for Sam, and headed home.

Yesterday Randy and Sam were up at 5am to head off to Toronto for Fan Exbo.  Sam had a great time dispite the large crowds.  Meeting some of the cast from Walking Dead, and having her picture taken with Chewboca from Star Wars. While they were away Grant and I spent our day doing things he liked.  A walk around the local Farmers Market, where we didn't find anything of interest.  We then spent a couple hours at Scales Nature Park, looking a snakes, turtles, tortoise, lizards.  A trip to Michaels was my favorite.  Then off to Lost World Reptile to replace a rock we had purchased to Eunice that was too big.  We ended up coming home with a new gecko, a male that looked similar to the male we lost.  This little guy is nearly full grown and you can handle him, which gives Grant more incentive to handle Eunice.

 While I was browsing around Michaels I came across molds made by Mod Podge.  You use their glue sticks in any mini hot glue gun.  Wait 5 minutes and pop them out of the molds.  You can then paint them any way you want. 

I painted the flowers with acrylic paints, and the leaf with a sharpie marker. I even added a little jewel to one flower.  You can then use them as embellishments for your cards and scrapbook pages.

Rock Necklace

Evening my fello bloggers. The count down is on. Six more sleeps and we are off on holidays. Kids are getting excited. 

My son is a rock phanatic. I find rocks everywhere. Every so often we have to go through the house and clear them out. Putting them back outside. Recently he found one he really liked and asked to make a necklace. Tonight we sat down and crafted a necklace for him.

Good evening everyone.  This is a quick post.  I'm quickly using the computer to scan my card before my daughter takes over for the evening.  Here we are on the down slide to the weekend.  And I'm counting down till holidays.  Seven more days of work, just over a week. And then it's relax time for two weeks.  So looking forward to it.

Happy Civic Long Weekend

Good morning everyone.  I'd like to wish all my Canadian bloggers a happy Civic Long Weekend.  I had to work yesterday but am off for Sunday and Monday.  Thinking not much is going to get done today.  Daughter wants to make a trip to McDonalds to use their Wi-Fi.  We have hit our limit at home.(that's one of the downfalls of living out of town.  Limited choices of internet providers.)  I have a lot of updates to do on my tablet too.

Looks like it's a work day for the boys.  To guys have shown up with chainsaws.  Apparently all the guys are back in the bush with chainsaws and wood chipper going.

Last night I was playing with my Basic Grey paper before I packed it up to get the next months out.  This is the little cutie I came up with.  It also fits a few challenges. It's been so long since I've done a challenge.  Feels good.
