Big Changes

Wow... the property is starting to look so much different .... Last Friday we have started on building the road into the Subdivision.  The first step was to clear the trees out.  The operator worked the whole weekend but he magange to cut and clear out all of the trees.  It's amazing how big and powerful those machines are..

The "foller buncher" being unloaded on Fiday afternoon and ready to get to work. 

It was amazing to watch this powerful machine to just grip, cut down the tree and lay it down like it's nothing...

I tried to stay far away while taking  pictures.  Those trees are so tall....  I was worried it could hit me on the way down, but the guy just slowly layed them down....  he was so precise and skilled... amazing..

He worked all afternoon on Friday and by the end of the day on Saturday, it was all cut down. There were piles of trees laying down all along the road..

This was the site on Sunday... all dragged away

It's all pilled up neatly for us to use some of it for firewood (it will take years to cut all of it down) and the popler to burn this winter... Now the house is more visible and exposed.  I will take some more pictures as we progress and keep you updated as we move along.
Thanks for visiting.

QP Contest

Cool Scrap Digital is having a QP contest going on again. You can check out all of the participants and collect all of the Quick Pages to make your own scrapbook. All of the pages are 8X8 and use the same kit by Chilli Designz called After math.  The kit is really beautiful and so easy to work with.

This is my quick page.  For me this kit has a Wedding feel to it, so I went with a wedding page.  My brother and sister in law had such a Fairy Tale Wedding that they became the object of my layout.  You can download a copy of this QP below.

Little Man's World

I'm trying to catch up on my Creative Team commitments, but I'm so far behind that it will take a while. Especially having to care for Adrian around the clock.  At least we are done with the daily injections of blood thinners and blood tests at the clinic to monitor the levels... He's also in much less pain right now and we've switched from T3 to Extra Strength Tylenol.... he was so doped up for the first few weeks...

Now, here is a new release Ginger Scraps kit by Marie H Designs called Little Man's World.  It's a very cute kit with lots of boyish elements and typically boyish colors. 

It comes with two sets of alphas and great word arts which makes it easier and faster to create a layout.  Marie is new to Ginger Scraps and I just discovered her wonderful kits.  I've got a few of them which I will show to you in following posts.  You defenitely should check out her work as she has a few kits on sale at the moment.  Here is the LINK to Ginger Scraps store. Just take a look.

I'm back

Well, it's been ages since I last posted... July 26th... close to a month.  Things around here are happening so fast that I haven't have time to scrap or update my blog.  The house construction is coming along. We've been waiting for drier weather to start building the road, but it's not happening, so looks like we'll have to proceed.  Last weekend my husband and our contractor installed the windows... WOW it makes the building look more like a house now... I'm getting so excited...

On Aug First my son went dirbiking with a friend and broke his leg dooing some jumps.  It was fortunate that we knew exaclty where he was as there was no reception and his friend had to get up on the roof of his pickup to get through.  I barely got the message when the call ended.... We spent the night in Emergency and got transported to the city hospital for surgery the next day.  Long story short, the surgeon decided against it and put him in a cast. Now we have good 2 months of healing and recovery to do...

Being incapacitated is really hard on him.  He's usually very active boy, not used to spending his time in front of the TV.  Being the middle of summer and all of his friends have gone somewhere on holidays makes things even thougher. He'll be very happy to go back to school this year.
