Girls Weekend Away

Back in 2005 Tina invited Liane, Deb and I to her parent's cottage for a wonderful fall weekend of scrapbooking. We had a blast and that very weekend it became an annual tradition. Unfortunately I has to miss last year because of work but was excited to be able to attend again this year. Sadly Deb couldn't be with us this year...missed you Deb.

Friday afternoon Tina (middle in pic above) picked me up and I had a minor freakout when she pulled up in her car. What...a car?? Oh no!! Any of you who have ever travelled with me know that I need a packing intervention. PIPO...HELP! Thankfully we only had to squish ourselves and ALL out stuff into her car until we reached Liane's place across town. Phew! I would have had to do some quick unpacking and it could have been messy. Thankfully it wasn't needed and after filling the entire trunk and back seat of Liane's van with our stuff (ok....mostly my stuff and some of the other girl's stuff) we were on the road.

It was a bit of a rainy weekend but the sun broke briefly at different times and it was warmer than normal. Check out this view!! This was what I enjoyed the entire weekend as the table I was using faced the picture window and this was the view. Ah! God's handiwork exemplified!

What a great way to spend a weekend: hanging out with friends, scrapbooking, sewing, reading, watching movies, napping and of course, eating! Tina's mom and a friend also come along and we're so glad they're there with us. We bring most of the food but these sweet ladies help prep the meals and do all the tidying after the meals so that we can get right back to our projects. Thanks so much Louise and Linda! We're so glad you share these weekends with us.

I had a long-overdue tag toy order to fill so rather than scrapbooking much I decided to fill this order plus make some extras. Sweet Tess, your taggies will finally be in the mail later this week. I really enjoy making these little toys and it was such fun to see all the different colour combinations. Little Miss Makenna doesn't have a tag toy yet but I'm sure that will change soon.

I was also able to fit in some scrapbooking time as well as finally take care of some long overdue paperwork. Life has just been busy lately and work is going to stay that way for the next 6 weeks or so so it feels so good to take care of projects that have been hanging over my head.

Hope you had a great weekend! Ready for some referral rumours and even better...referrals!

Also, praying for D and A as they travel this week to meet their precious baby girl! SO excited for you friends!! Praying for you.

  12. Catherine just looking at the picture of your view seems so relaxing to me and the picture in the snow is just too cute, she is a doll. I am so glad that you got some much needed rest and relaxation. Have a great week.
    Love, Kristy

  13. what a perfect setting, I remember your last post about your visit to the lake, looks like you had lots of scrapbooking planned.

  14. Look at all that scrapbook parafanalia! I sometimes think I have more fun shopping for the stuff than I do creating the pages!! I am like you... gotta bring it all because what happens if you get inspired and don't have the material you need? HUH???? : )

    Looks like you had a lovely time!!
    Lisa :)

    P.S. A little birdie told me you may be heading to "O" Town???? ;)
