Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass but learning to dance in the rain.
La vie, ce n’est pas d’attendre que l’orage passe, c’est apprendre à danser sous la pluie.

TGIF.........eh....well....almost ...!

...no "school" for me tomorrow.......yeah!!!.... long weekend.......well almost, hospital appointment at 9 a.m. Been an eventful week and a busy day!
Medal ceromony at lunchtime:
Nicolas being awarded life membership of a very elite group at work!
The three members of the the elite group, proudly sporting their medals of honour!
The medal....yes ..handmade by yours truly in the wee small hours of this morning
After celebrating Nicolas' birthday in the appropriate manner, gifts, cakes and champagne, no time to rest, off to origami class with the lovely Yuko. Today we put together the 30 folded pieces we made last month! Maths can be a problem in origami and none of us felt capable of doing the 3 and 5 rule without Yuko's supervision!! The result is very intricate and beautiful, well I think so, judge for yourselves!
thanks Yuko!!
Very shortly it will be off to bed, the sandman is already calling!

Lucky streak

I won again...Yipeee. Nice prize for just being there!!! Thank you so, so much Laura and Carol & Barrie xxx. Can't wait to see it for real. What an appropriate sentiment........ AND.... not only signed by Tim Holtz himself...........but also created by, and signed by, the talented woman that "blew his mind...", "flipped his world upside down...", "never in a million years would he have thought of that.." wowowowo! She deserves the praise!

Cricut CraftRoom

Apart from the videos on Facebook & a couple of videos like this on youtube, there doesn't seem to be a lot of details about this online software. Is it really free? Can you alter the designs? Can you create your own? ....don't miss the next episode!
Mise à part quelques vidéos comme celui-ci et les vidéos sur Facebook il y a pas beaucoup d'information concernant ce logiciel en ligne. Est-ce vraiment gratuit? Est-ce qu'on peut changer les dessins? Est-ce qu'on peut créer ses propres créations? ....à suivre!
