Happy Halloween and the closing of a chapter....





Well, today is Halloween. It has been so long since I have dressed up. I think the last time I dressed up I wore my pajamas to work!! I don't think I was anyone in particular - but hey, how many times in your life do you get to wear flannel pajamas and fuzzy slippers to work...and get away with it! I think every Friday should be pajama day...or maybe every Monday and then you wouldn't have to get up so early...just roll right out of bed into the car and into work! My kids are pretty much out of the dressing up phase. I thought they might dress up for school - NMDHS staff and students are pretty "into" stuff like that. I was surprised last year by the number of teachers who actually dressed up. It's nice to see them involved like that. We had a busy weekend so maybe if we hadn't of been, they would have come up with something for today..who knows. If you decide to go out trick-or-treating tonight - be safe and have fun! I love some of the designs and pictures people have been putting on pumpkins in the last decade. I remember scooping out the mush with Granny and Poppa and then baking the seeds to eat (I just make a stop at the Bulk Barn for pumpkin seeds now.....). Then we would make a face - but it was just your basic triangle eyes, triangle nose and funky mouth; nothing like some of these fancy pumpkins you see around now. Like Edward and Bella
And this cute little kitty cat.
And the cute kitty when he's all grown up!
And a personal favourite..... E.T.
Man oh man I wish I could carve a pumpkin to look like this!

Today also marks the closing of a chapter for me. Today is the last day that I will be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I was unable to fulfill this month's requirements, so today I am finished. I truly do love Stampin' Up!'s products. They are of the finest quality and I will continue to buy their paper and stamps through other demonstrators. I have met some of the nicest people through Stampin' Up! Not only did I get a chance to meet and talk with Shelli Gardner - the founder of Stampin' Up! a couple of times, I met my BFF and some of my closest friends, through little pieces of wood and rubber! I don't think I will ever stop stamping and creating. I find it therapeutic and I like to make cards and things for people. I am looking forward to a new chapter in the paper crafting world...I'll fill you in on that at a later date. So for now, I say farewell as a demonstrator and thank you to everyone who had workshops and attended my classes. (fyi..the classes are not over!)
Have a safe and Happy Halloween

The Walking Dead....finally...

Well the kids and I have been waiting since last year for the second season of The Walking Dead to come on. The Season 2 premiere was on Sunday night - and wouldn't ya know it....my express vu has not been working since Friday - I don't know what the heck is up with it - but if it's not working when I get home today - Bell will be getting an irate phone call from me. I did manage to find the episode online though - so we watched it last night - oh my gosh - what a way to start the season. Even though it's a gross zombie show - I look forward to seeing it every week! I like all the characters, they are all unique in their own way. I have a busy few days coming up!!!! Jactopia is here!!! (well it will be on Thursday). This is my annual get together with my stamping friends. I'm especially excited for this year cause my very good friend Jenn is home from BC so she can come too! I'm so looking forward to some downtime from work, I have been very very busy for the last 6 months and I love to stamp with my girls to get my mojo goin'! Hopefully I'll have some pictures to post after the event! Chow for now, Jacqui

Happy Thanksgiving...

I always love this time of year. The colours are so rich and vibrant. The days are pleasant enough to be outside, but cool down so sleeping is not a problem at night. The only thing about this time of the year is knowing that soon, the snow will be flying again and everything will be white and drab.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my wonderful family and friends. I am very blessed to have each and every one of you in my life. Even if I don't call as often as I should, or write/email as often as I should or visit as often as I should, please know you are in my thoughts often and I'd be very sad if you were not in my life.
I hope you are all taking some time today and this weekend to spend it with friends and family and to remember all of the wonderful things you are thankful for.
Have a super day, and I hope Mr. Bean is not cooking your turkey!
Chow for now,
Jacqui

Autumn harvest!

Well I don't know if you remember seeing these pictures of my raspberries before, but they have started to bear some raspberries. I was not holding out much hope for them because not all of them survived - I transplanted them from my mom's so transplanting is always iffy - but some of them have held on and they are giving us some raspberries. I think I'm gonna have to get some more from mom in the spring, but for now we have a tasty little treat. (little being the operative word!) I'm excited for all the shows to be starting up again. I was looking forward to the premiere of the new show Terra Nova - and so far - I have not been disappointed. http://youtu.be/X6aNEIZwPFc (check out this preview) it's a cool story line and I can't wait to see how the story and the characters develop along the way. If you haven't watched it yet - you should give it a shot. I'm liking it. Steven Lang is in it...he plays a good bad guy - remember - bad guy in Avatar.... but I'm not really sure in this show yet. I think he's a good guy -but I also think he has a lot of secrets. I think he's a good character though. Just a quick post for today, I am swamped at work and I thought there was a light at the end of the tunnel last week....but I'm pretty sure it got snuffed out yesterday. Chow for now, Jacqui
