I can't believe it has been 6 days since I have posted. Lots of things happening as usual, I don't know how I ever found time to work. More likely it was that when I worked full time, a lot of stuff just didn't get done. As of today my daughter has been off school from the teacher's strike for three full weeks. The first week was fun, no school, sleeping in--the honeymoon. After week two she was ready to get back.
This week our focus has been on making a final decision about where she will be attending next fall. She had offers from 5 Universities but in the end she had to choose just one. She has chosen the offer from Laurentian University for Concurrent Education Primary/Junior. Laurentian is the University Ben goes to and she struggled with that a bit, wanting to make her own path, but when she weighed out the options she saw this as being the best choice. The program is 5 years instead of 6, it is the only school in Ontario that is able to offer it for this year. Starting 2016 the program will be 6 years everywhere in Ontario. Ben is in the Architecture building which is downtown where Brooklyn will be on main campus, so their paths will not typically cross, but for me I know her big brother is there for her. Okay I'll stop, I know what you came here for...
We have a new challenge starting today at Tag You're It.
Inspired by the colours, they embossing paste and dimension I came up with this one. Excited to finally ink up my Tim Holtz Crazy Birds stamps. Not my usually CAS style but so much fun to create. Maria Fisher commented on my blog the other day that I was 'goin' mixed media'--ha ha sometimes it just happens. The tag was cut, the embossing paste went on, the bird was stamped over the dry paste and then the cup was added with foam tape. We would l0ove to see you play along this week!
