An adventure...

I don't know if anyone here has visited Canada before, or more specific Banff in the Western Canadian province of Alberta. I live near there and it never ceases to amaze me when I take day trips around the area and see what a beautiful space I live in. I love the mountains and the nature that exists there.

Yesterday, I ventured out early with my dear friend and her visiting family. I told the young passengers that there is never a guarantee that we will see any wildlife, as times have changed from when I was a child and we would most certainly see something.

Yesterday was amazing! It started with deer....

And, then the Big Horn Sheep and Elk....

And then......

BEARS!!! A momma and her two cubs (yearlings and very large!)!

A very exciting day, indeed!

Projects of late...

Thanks all for the well wishes. It has been a long month, with school ending and family issues. All is on the mend.

I have also been busy with paper crafts. I made 63 graduation cards for the '08 class, as I have worked with the majority of them for all 12 years. I made the cards, put a variety of quotes inside and then a personal message for each grad. It was hard work but worth it.

I also made these altered notebooks. Both to give to friends and they turned out great!

And then....I used acrylic sheet and some beautiful paper to make my MIL a clock for her office. It is hard to tell, but there is a lot of void, clear space on here. I love it and will be making more!

So, for now I am off....12 more school days left!!!!
