 We are 11 months into self isolation due to the Covid 19 Pandemic.

 As older adults, we did not go out much before the pandemic but to be forced into a lockdown is depressing.

Not able to go to a movie theatre or  wander  in a shopping. mall.. No library visits 

The worst part is no hugs with our grandchildren and children. 

We worry for our daughter who works in a hospital, our granddaughter too. Our great niece and our nephew , our cousins son are all in health care and in contact with the virus. 

We need a new refrigerator, a new kitchen tap and to replace the floor in our living room. 

Everything is on hold.

Hopefully this is over soon. 

Take care. Stay safe.

I have been away for a long time.

Missing in action with a computer that did not like to blog

so I finally broke down and bought a new one.

I have been working on albums from Vicki Boutin.
So far I have made two Christmas Albums and 2 regular everyday albums.

Now to  fill them with photos. I have printed some photos but still looking for more,
then fine tune which I want to use.
This might take a while.

I  have not been scrapbooking much other than the albums.

But I have been attending Stampin Up workshop classes with my friend, Louise Cyr

I started with Jamilla Ivits but she moved away when her husband Gerry retired.

We have fun , a few laughs, and make some cards, learn some new techniques and fancy folds.

I will try to post my progress "if I make any, that is"

Have a good day,

My collection

I started collecting Hallmark Singing Snowman when my first grandchild was born.
I am missing a couple but here is my layout for the ones I have collected.

Finally finished the layout when found the dates on line.

My grandchildren love them and for the month of December they have a wonderful time playing with them in a circle and sometimes playing them all at once.
