The first weekend in October I was in Parksville for Scrapbookin' Adventures 7th Anniversary event. It ws a Friday evening and all day Saturday. My dear mother has been treating me to it since the beginning, as the event is always in early October and my birthday is at the end of the month. The last few (3? or 4?) years the highlight of the event has been that it's a fundraiser to support BC Children's Hospital/BC Crops for Kids, and the fact that we do a really fun, 20 layout, Use Your Own Product workshop. The neat thing about the workshop is it suits a range of scrappers and skill levels. I am at the point where I completely stray from the sketches sometimes. I have layouts done from the event to share as soon as I can decide on a good place to photograph them.
It turns out I'm NOT moving across the hall. My apartment isn't suitable for the new tenant; the one I wanted has certain features that she needs more than me. I am getting laminate to replace my carpeting, though, and they are going to paint my place. It's all good. To be honest, as much as I was looking forward to the outside entrance, I was NOT looking forward to packing up my stuff. Though sadly, since they're painting and ripping out carpet, I suppose I'll still have to do that. Thank goodness I have wonderful friends who will help me.
We had a lovely Thanksgiving dinner on the 13th. Mom made a great turkey and then we played Dominoes. We all lost to the teenager again. She sits so quietly and all the while she's clearly plotting how to get us off our game. ;)
That's enough blathering for today. I'm sure you'd rather see a card! I found the kit for this set of Christmas cards when I was cleaning out my craft drawers and I decided I would work on it first, since it fits Christmas At Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Cards for Men
