March 22, 2012


Beautiful warm weather invited Justin & I to walk down to The Beaches, along the boardwalk and back home again, always with camera on hand. So many people were out running and walking there dogs, everyone enjoying this unseasonably warm spell.



I'm prepping for the final states in the attack vs THE STUFF in my apartment and I'm bringing hopefully the last piece: storage for paper. It was not easy to decide, the kind that looked the most like the ones I already have were now redesigned and very flimsy, and the I got stuck in the loop of the ones that were more but looked nicer vs the ones that were cheaper and felt nice. Aieeee!! Usually I'm good at decisions, but this one was a doozy!



We are still getting ridiculous warm weather (yay!) so yesterday I was excited to go out and pick up this book from the library. I also worked on some skull pendants and am reconsidering making buttons that way. I am frustrated because I don't have all the colours I need to make the clay pendants. Hopefully Reg will take me to Michaels soon so I can keep the momentum going.

Wow, Shannon, look at all that choice! And with all those variables, no wonder it was hard to decide. I'm looking forward to coming over this week and being a part of the Attack on The Stuff ;) Can I be, like, your plucky sidekick?

It's wild that we're all getting this warm spell, Suzie! Yay to getting a book that's going to inspire more foodie crafty creations! I hope you get out to Michaels soon :)

Jamie, that's a stunning photo down at The Beaches and I would have been drawn there too!

Shannon, where is that?! Is it Staples or IKEA? What did you end up choosing?

Thanks Jamie, it's been a nice change although it's gotten crazy hot so I can't really use my oven right now. I do hope Reg can take me to Michaels though, I'm sort of stuck right now with my projects.

Thanks about the photo, Suzie. I am totally hooked on the "panorama" setting on my camera. I just love the way it captures spaces!

Suzie Ridler said...

Wow, totally impressed with that setting! I wonder if I have it on my camera, LOL. You never know! Regardless, it's beautiful. Can't wait to go to The Beaches with you in June!
