Where has the summer gone????

Well when I look at the calandar I really can't believe August is just looming around the corner! I would think most people with school age kids feel they have to hit the floor running after the August long weekend. I cheated and headed stateside to do a little preliminary school supply shopping or Target therapy - lol. Truthfully though they get killer sales on school supplies that we just don't see on this side. (Crayola Crayons 24 pk. $.25/ea, 10 ct. marker $1, Elmer glue sticks 6/$1 etc.) If you haven't figured it out yet my kids are in elementary school and one is still home terrorizing the pets and her mom :) .

My son, Connor, started playing football this year and really loves it. I tend to hold my breath when he is on the field but his smaller size seems to be in his favour.
Connor is in the black and white jersey facing the camera - see my size concern....? He has really taken to the sport though and I have to confess I prefer it to hockey...

My last post said I would work my way through Stephanie Lee's book - well in true Michelle fashion I have procrastinated to the point that I have only located the linen thread but have yet to do anything with it...sad I know. I've actually bought Wayne Dyer's new book called "Excuses Begone" can you guess what it is about???? lol I did start another piece of jewelry, a necklace, but I haven't taken any photos of it. I sort of got stuck on finishing the locket portion. I will try to post some pictures soon.

Playoffs for football are beginning - I hope the lad makes it with minimal bumps and bangs!


  1. Hey there Michelle,
    Your blog is lovely. I think its great that your little dude is gonna be a big CFL star and take care of his parents!!
    Your work is really nice...love the altered little book!!

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
    Hugs xOxO, Nerina :)

  2. Michelle! Your little guy is soooo cute!!

    Thanks for stopping by to comment on my blog! I really appreciate it!

    I scan the photos and use the copies so the original stays nice. I rarely use the photo itself (unless I'm making a memory piece for family!) You can keep your collection intact and still have images to work with!
