Sometimes people make “cute” look so effortless! Jeeze…

Well peeps, it’s -40c here and ice fog is surrounding my work place so thickly, you can’t see anything. Why we are still open is beyond me. Seriously. What farmer in his right mind is going to be needing tractor parts in weather like this??

I should have phoned in and said my truck wouldn’t start. Dangit. Why didn’t I think of this earlier?

I’ll have new pictures of the kitchen this evening. You wouldn’t believe what we (aka: Hubby) has accomplished! I just about pee my pants every time I walk into the kitchen. I can’t believe it’s really mine, really just about finished and really so amazing. Wow. I seriously feel SO blessed!

She’s A Wife

In Uncategorized on December 9, 2009 at 9:21 pm

I have no words.

My sis is married, and so stunning!

Tears.

So instead I’ll post my speech.

I have been writing this speech in my head since Sall and I were really little. Not only because I couldn’t wait for the day that she met the man that she would marry, but also because Sally has had so many blonde moments and I couldn’t wait to share them with everyone. She’s lucky that I lost the journal I was recording them in though…
 
Weirdly enough, just after I started writing this speech, I came across Sally and Bruce’s EHarmony ads and I thought it’d be great to read them. Here’s Salls:
 
“Pretty little Trolly Dolly looking for tough guy. Must have money and be willing to spend it (on me), cannot have the occupation of a farmer, cannot live in Dawson Creek, must have accent. I have big brown eyes, will woo you with baking and home made meals. Getting old at 24 so save me quickly”.
 
Bruce’s was kinda interesting:
 
“Cop man looking for maiden in distress. Loves long walks on the beach, chick flicks (such as Grays Anatomy) and playing scrabble. Willing to sell motorbike for huge engagement ring and use handcuffs when needed.”
 
For those of you that don’t know, I am the reason that Sally and Bruce met. 😀 Sally had it in her head that she wanted to move back to Australia, so I hatched a plan to make her stay in Canada. I forced her to sign up with EHarmony.
 
Via phone and emailing Sally and I went through the guys that were suggested for her, not really finding anything super interesting until we landed on Bruces’ profile. For some reason I had a feeling that this “Bruce” guy was the one for her.
 
After her first date with Bruce, Sally called me and told me all about it. Sall’s told me all about her other dates…even texted me while she’s in the middle of them…but this was different. With every other guy Sall has dated, she’s been unsure. She’s questioned every step, she’s worried, and her stomach has been in knots the whole time. But with Bruce it was comfortable from the start, Sally didn’t have any questions, she wasn’t uncomfortable during the date and she fully enjoyed herself and this meant alot! My plan had worked!
 
Bruce, I know that you are exactly what Sally needs for a husband. You’re calm, relaxed, and adventerous. You’re a born leader but in a gentle way and you obviously adore Sally to pieces.
 
Sally, I know that you’re going to make an amazing wife. You have the biggest heart, you take care of those around you, you cook a mean meal, you’re understanding and you’re generous.
 
Marriage is amazing guys, you’re going to love being married! If I could give you one piece of advice it would be to always listen. Truly listen to what your partner is saying, realize that what they’re saying is a real concern to them, listen to their venting, listen to their happyness, and listen to their worries.

I know you two are meant for each other, you compliment each other in every way.
 
Everyone please fill your cups. To the beautiful couple: to love, to happyness, and to PDA. To the new Robinsons!

Christmas isn’t even here yet and already I’m thinking of January birthday gifts! I just received this quilt in the mail (it only took a week!) for my Mom’s birthday. The three oldest kids in the fam are going in on buying it for her and we just know she’s going to die when she sees it!

Check out QuiltLover’s shop  for more absolutely amazing creations!

 

The White Owl

I haven’t been visiting Etsy very often lately…partly because I’m slightly bitter at my non-success on that site, but also because I have tons on my plate at the moment (which may have something to do with my lack of success…).

Every time I do visit the Etsy site though, I’m reminded about the passion I have for creating. My eyes fill my brain with amazing inventions, creative conquests and brilliant ideas. And questions like “Why didn’t I think of that?!”.

The White Owl shopis now being featured as Etsy’s Featured Seller and it’s a perfect shop to be in that place. It’s a store you just have to take a look through, their pieces are so delicate and girlie. It’s captivating.

So you know how I purchased a block picture from Skinny Swallow? Well, I got it in the mail yesterday and it came with a surprise! Another block! Yep, a second one for free. I love this shop, Michaela has a way of making her buyers feel so special and loved.

The block below is the free one that Michaela sent me, isn’t it beautiful? I think this one is going to go in my living room, maybe beside my antique books…or right next to my great-aunts tea cups.

This week is turning out to be a busy one! I decided to go for the next level in Arbonne at the last minute (late last week!) and I’ve been working hard at getting there! My goal is to hand out 20 samples in the next couple days, this way I’ll get new contacts and hopefully a few sales. I also have three parties this week (the second one is tonight!), so that’s keeping me on my toes!

But I’m going to do it! I’m going to make it to District and start reeling in the big bucks! Wish me luck!

necklace

I’m totally swooning over these necklaces! I just found them on the front page of Etsy (Kangas, you lucky duck!) and I am just drooling (ha! I just about wrote ‘drooping’ there).

At the Christine Kangasstore, you can buy necklaces and matching earrings, they’re all so quaint and so “just plucked out of the garden” feeling. You’ll feel like a pixie or nymph wearing these incredible creations!

Just beautiful!
