Smokin' Boots

Ohhhhhh look at these sexy boots!!!
Should I or shouldn't I?!?

Had a little visit to Michael's.
You would think that after my major creative shopping spree last month that I shouldn't even walk into a craft store……but…...
Found some new Heidi Swapp washi tape…we all need more washi right?

Stopped into McFrugal's and picked up a couple of stamps..each were under $2.00, how could I not?!

Stopped off at Dollarama and couldn't resist these candy dots :)
I have a project I want to do with these huge google eyes…not that I would get it done this year, lol.

Oh and if you are wondering….yes, those boots came home with me, teehee.

What really sold me on these boots was a text I received from Ashley after I showed her the above photo…asking her "Should I?"
Here response " Those are cute, yes you should!"
"Wear them with all black and a nice scarf with that colour in it"
Then I went back a got them.
I was telling the sales girl about the text.
The sales girl states "I bet you both wear the same size"
Good play Ashley, good play.

I had a great day….I was suppose to clean and decorate for Fall…but instead, I went for lunch with Ashley's MIL, then we went shopping.
Always a great time when we get together :)

I hope you all had a creative day :)

The Colours of Fall

The colours of Fall.
This is Mount McKay.
I have always wanted to hike this mountain, but have yet to try it.

Today was a day spent cleaning the house….mostly windows.
I like to wash them, inside and out, before the snow comes.
I also always vacuum the screens a couple times a year.

I hope you all had a very creative day :)

October Fauxbonichi's monthly pages

Ok, Ok, I know I said I was caught up…but in my procrastinating life, I was ;)
I am now finally into October in my Fauxbonichi :)
Here is my monthly page :)
I love the colour combination I used here, and had fun playing with my washi tape :)
I just have to write my goals on the left hand side of the page and I'm good to start living in October, teehee.

Here are my 1st couple of days :)
Don't you just love the look and feel of a crisp clean page :)
I added my header, dates and washi tape to all of this month's pages.
I added sticker numbers, instead of my stamps, and I really like the boldness to them :)
Now to decorate and journal.

One of my goals this year was to try not to be such a procrastinator… you can see, totally failed at that goal, lol.
When I did Book-keeping, I was always working in the month that just passed, so that is what I am blaming my being behind on….at least thats my story and I'm stickin' to it, lol.

I hope you all had a very creative day :)

All Caught Up

I am caught up in my Fauxbonichi Journal!!!!!
Actually I have completed the book, as in no more pages left to write in :)

I wanted to add some colour on some pages so I decided to use some inks.
I got this idea when I tried my hand at recreating some bokah, back in February….boy, I am a procrastinator, lol.

Oops forgot to show my templates ;)
I had already had the fun polk a dot washi tape on this page and I just happen to try it on here….coincidence or artsy genius, lol.
I punched circles with 4 different sized circle punches and then just kept inking and layering them.
I used some make up pads to apply the ink…I was at camp so used what I had….odd that I would have make up pads there as I don't wear make up when we are there, lol.

I think this page turned out so pretty :)

I hope you all had a very Creative Day :)

They're Coming!!!!

The Zombies are Coming!!!!!

LOL, not really…that's just Wayne.
He was putting plastic on the outside of the windows at the cottage.
We have storm windows and put them up every year….but Wayne is always going above and beyond what is needed, he thinks we need to add plastic on the windows as well.

Have you ever had this pastry called a Flaky by Vachon.
They are so good!!!
I have been eating them since I was a kid.

I have an odd way of eating…almost everything, lol.
I like to pick the sugar off of the top layer of this pastry.
I then take my Flaky apart and then put icing on both the top and the bottom.

But I am disappointed as the manufacturers of the Flaky…have decided to cut corners and for many years, they have been pretty stingy on the icing and I can no longer do that :(

Wayne and I didn't get home until 7:30 from camp tonight.
It took us a bit longer to close up this year….plus the couple extra quad rides didn't speed anything up at all ;)
I am off to watch the Season finale of Fear the Walking Dead now :)

I hope you all had a very Creative Day :)

Keeping warm…My day in photos…Cottage edition

It was Long John weather today.
Actually my aunt dared me to post this picture. 
I know she was hoping for a the Long Johns with the butt flap.
But my long underwear is stylin'. Lol.
Enjoyed a few very short walks today. 
We had lots of year end chores to attend to. 
But that didn't stop us from going for a nice long quad ride. 

A very chilly quad ride. 
Enjoyed our last sauna. 

So nice to warm up after our rude. 

I hope you had a creative day.

Move along.

Playing catch up, when I'm so far behind, isn't always easy.
Some days I had no idea what I did, or had no idea what to put on the page. 

This was one of those days.
Thought we could use a little giggle, lol. 

I hope you had a creative day :)
