I’m Still Here

Really, I am. I wish I had an excuse to justify my absence but in reality, I don’t. It’s not like I am busier than most Moms but apparently lazier since I haven’t blogged in forever! 😂 My boys are fully immersed in their ball hockey playoffs. We are not currently playing during the week but weekends are crazy!

Do you see that little 21? That is my 13 year old! He maybe small but he is easily the fastest kid on the team! Did I mention that he is tenacious? He easily stands up to kids twice his size and if he doesn’t bounce off of them he beats them!That guy in the middle, heading for the net? Yeah, he’s mine too! This is his second season playing! He loves it! He will spend hours practicing on the deck in the backyard!

During the weekends I am also trying to squeeze in the last few orders that I have to complete and make a few Christmas gifts and some Christmas decor for ourselves. Somewhere in my mind it seemed like a great idea to try to do this all at once. Everybody on my side of the family gets novelty socks. I am bringing out my inner Oprah at Christmastime, ” you get socks”, “you get socks”, “everybody gets socks”! I also personalized stockings for all the humans in my house, the dogs and cats but I still need to make a rabbit stocking.

It’s the second weekend of December and we have yet to put up lights or get a tree! This is our must do weekend! I made a few ornaments for our, yet to exist, tree and last but not least I am finishing up some Christmas Eve boxes for my boys. I have all the contents but still want to label them and fill them with goodies! I will post those next week!

Craft Sale

Winter Is…..Here

Well, it should come as no surprise that winter is here. I mean it is not like it hasn’t happened before. I really don’t mind the snow but I am not a fan of the cold. I am not even joking when I say that on October 31 it was +6C. and rainy. November 1 it was the start of winter. This weekend after a heavy snowfall warning we are looking at high temperatures of -8C.

I know that the worst is yet to come but winter could not have waited until after this weekend? I had my craft sale on Saturday. It was snowy and cold. I hoped that the colder weather would not put people off of Christmas buying spirit. It didn’t!! 

My first ever craft sale was successful. I sold lots of small items like jewellery, wine glasses, wine bags and tags. It seems people really like their wine!


This craft sale was at a rather small venue but it seems to be popular. It took me three tries to get accepted but now that Scrapatini was accepted I get an invite back each year so that makes me crazy happy. The table costs are low here and I made my table cost back and more in my first sale!

I had great support from friends and neighbours that came to see me. I was also able to take orders and made quite a few contacts with people look for personalized items.Anyways I now have time to work on my project for my feature in a couple of weeks.

Back In Action

You who! I am over here! I know it has been a while but I have been busy. My family went on vacation for 10 days to beautiful Maui. During that time we relaxed, checked out the sights and ate plentifully. I love traveling but it is always nice to be home. The one thing that I did miss other then our pets was crafting. It has been a long time since I have gone that long without working on some sort of project. 

I am participating in a neighbourhood craft sale in a couple of weeks so I had been ramping up production during the summer. I started making jewellery which has been very successful. I worked on a few different types of signs. I got really good at using my Cricut Easy Press. I made Christmas cards and ornaments which was really hard to do when the weather was nice!

When my craft sale is over I hope to get back to some more scrapbooking and card making. If you want to see more check out my Facebook page. Scrapatini on Facebook
