Hi Friends! I hope you’re having a nice weekend so far! Yesterday I canned pickled onions – my favourite! I had a heck of a time finding silverskin onions but let me tell ya, I was sure excited when I finally did!
Aside from canning, I’ve also been cooking the meals for “Giant Bluefin Tuna Charters”, as their season is in full swing. This is my third year catering the meals for them and I love it. I have a set menu that includes Steak & Ale Pie, Bangers & Mash, Seafood Chowder (my most popular meal), Lasagne, Beef Stroganoff, Chicken Pasties and more.
I’m also still in the process of moving my craft room from downstairs to upstairs, which is a HUGE job. The room I’m moving into has a window (the room downstairs didn’t) and after Hurricane Dorian and five days without power, I decided I’d rather stamp in natural light than have the (loud) generator on. The upstairs room is MUCH smaller though and it’s going to be tricky trying to fit everything in without feeling cluttered and cramped. Good thing I like a challenge! My guy is also going to build shelves inside the closet for me, which will really make a difference and help with storage. I’ll share photos once it’s all finished. I’ve really missed having a window in my stamping space – especially in the winter and seeing the pretty snow falling outside.
So you can see it’s been a busy weekend for me, but it’s been a nice weekend too and I even found time to stamp a card this morning…
The card I am sharing with you today is for this month’s “Leader’s Project Group”. I used the new “Snow Many Stars” bundle from the holiday catalogue and this is the first chance I’ve had to play with it.
