A Little Nookie!

Good Morning

I feel a little generous today!!

I purchased this Basic Grey Nook and Pantry card kit ( twice!) thinking I was going to have time to create a few cards for a Christmas gift... but it turns out I didn't! So I would like to share this greeting card kit with someone!!

Leave a Comment below and I'll draw a name on January 1st at noon EST!

A Tragic Fire...

On December 17th 2009, a large fire occurred in my hometown of Grand Falls New Brunswick.
4 large buildings were damaged in this fire and burnt to the ground.
A few of these buildings were part of our own family heritage - owned by one Ronnie Kertson in the early 1900's. It's unbelievable the damage that was caused and we are so thankful that noone was killed or injured.

Here is a short video of what the buildings looked like before the after, and showing pics of after the fire.

Unreal isn't it?
A Pool Hall which was once a Theatre owned by my Great Great Grandfather -
A furniture store, businesses, a  hair dresser's salon, and a day care for 30 children. .. it was at 9pm at night- so noone was around but the people of the apartments on top of all these buildings.

It will be a shock when i got home to visit -- and such a sad story for those that loss their businesses and homes in this tragic fire.

Mr. Skwinty Face

Yes, I have a cat that loves to have his picture taken... whether he's outside enjoying the sun, or sitting inside having a nap... This past summer hubby took this picture of him sitting in the grass - relaxing and squinting! I couldn't help but scrapbook this page as we often call him Mr. Skwinty Face! The look he gives us after waking up from an hour nap or having the sunshine on his face ;-)

What a Cute Cat!

Hope you are enjoying your holiday season...

The snow has fallen...

We received our first real snowfall last night and waking up this morning to everything white and fluffy was beautiful. I had to force hubby to come and have a ' Little ' photo shoot with me today. He had other plans but he managed to entertain me for about 10 minutes!! hahah!!!

I wanted to take a few pictures for christmas cards, and a few scrapbook projects. I needed something to match the Cosmo Cricket Collection and my blue fleece was the closest thing to blue and pink!

Here is a sneek -- >

I have nothing scrappy to showcase today, maybe later this week!

Chow for Now!
