Oh, Wednesday...

Hello, hello this Wednesday morning...=) (I thought it was Thursday until about 2 seconds ago - ha ha!) I have work to keep me busy today, and the power has been out in Van near where I work for a few days (just in about a 6-block radius, some cables blew up and caught fire...) so my walk to work is extra peaceful, these day, as the tour buses don't empty out when all the touristy shops are closed, which means I don't have to weave in and out of slow-paced tourists...Ahhh...lol.

As for me, I tried to draw last night and was unsuccessful, so I was sewing til the wee hours - I love the fabric color combo I have goin on, but I can't show peeks because they girls might be reading this...he he. I'll show when I'm done and the projects are given away!

Anyway, I just realized how much stuff I have to do before we head to Calgary for my friend Melissa's wedding - wowza! And I keep getting more and more projects, which means I have to pick and choose and I hate doing that! lol...can't I just stay home and stop time and do everything? lol...(I feel like I'm always saying that). So anyway, my hopes of updating the shop regularly this month have been pushed back...(sigh).

Oh, and after the spiel about having our walls ripped open, it turns out the construction guys aren't even going to - lol...they ripped up our neighboors apartment already and have access to our pipes, there, so yay for us! No holes and new drywall and all that jazz in our place...whew! (knock on wood!)

Also, I forgot to announce the very coolness on Monday that is a guest design stint at the lovely new PaperMinx this month! Brought to you by Steph and Aimee...=) I am honored, girls, thanks for having me! And I rather like that bio I wrote for them here, usually they're odd and hard to do but I'm happy with that one...lol. Here's a peek of the kit, (I got mine in the mail yesterday and it's just sooo fab):
And thanks to Tonya for handing me a lil blog award! =) I would pass it on, but I'm pretty sure all my fave blogs have already been honored...he he.

Haven't scrapbooked in soo long! I'm excited! =) he he...happy day, everyone!

I had to live through a repiping of the last apartment building I lived in and it happened to coinside with me finishing school and being home all day all the time. I got to know the plumber/constructions guys quite well. They were used to doing occupied buildings so they made it as painless as possible but dude it sucked. So yay for the neighbours suffering instead of you!

(And in the end they evicted all the tenants and converted the building to condos. sigh.) :)

Congrats on the guest DT spot! Can't wait to see what you do with that kit. Glad to hear that they aren't going to be tearing your apartment apart.

Sounds like a lot of fun! Congrats on the guest DT thing. Lovely bio. They are super hard. And yay for no walls being taken down.

Hey Michelle, how are you? I can't wait to see what you come up with that yummy kit! Hey I didn't know you lived in Canada. Hubby and I were talking about moving to Canada in a couple of years from now. But we need to do some more research. Which places do you recommend? Canada is huge I know, but we like the idea of moving there somehow, we don't know anyone over there. We'll see what happens, right? Take care and have a nice day! Sorry about the long post...lol.

Awesome that they don't have to rip up your apartment, or at least not as much as you expected. :)

And congrats on Z's work visa. My husband almost cried with relief when he was finally able to get a job. Something about letting the wife run herself into the ground with work while the husband sits at home all day, trying to avoid deportation, just doesn't sit right with foreigners. ;) hehehe, I can see American men totally digging that situation, though.
