A LO, I haven't done one in so long!

Well, in the last couple of weeks I have been steadily working towards a goal of getting all my crap, err, I mean scrapbooking stuff together so that I could actually be productive.

Well the other day I reached that goal and sat down to complete my first LO, in well, let's just say it has been awhile.

3 weeks down and a long over due post!

Three weeks down...I swear April feels like it is barely moving. For my geeky friends out there all I can see is visions of SG-1 series finally "Unending" flashing in my mind.

Well enough about that. This post is way over due and I want to get it shared. I had some grandiose plans for some new decorations that I was going to make for Spring/Easter for the house and while I didn't get to all of them the ones that I didn't finish I am super happy with and all supplies for the others have been put away for next year.

So here is my first project that I made, it is a new wreath. While I had dozens of ideas floating around in my head and I'll admit that the finally creation was not the original final decision I am really glad that I changed my mind.

One week down, 27 to go!

This is what my morning looked like a week ago...bags packed and he was ready to leave for 6 months.
Now for most Military families this scene has happened many times for them. I, on the other hand have been very lucky in that my husband has not yet been deployed. Well all that changed with our current posting. Now don't get me wrong, I am proud that my husband serves, as I am proud of all others who make a this huge sacrifice, I guess I have just been living in the world of denial that this day would eventually come and that it would include me being left alone with 2 children very, very, very far from family!

Ok, self pity train moving on for at least awhile!

In the last few weeks leading up to deployment, I had spent any free moment that I had trying to put together this little deployment book for my husband while he was away. I saw the idea on Pinterest a few months ago and thought that it was a great idea and that I could make one as well.

Cabane à Sucre or Sugar Shack

A couple of weeks ago we were invited to a Cabane à Sucre or Sugar Shack party. I have had the pleasure of going to several in  Quebec and it is an experience one does not want to miss.
