A small groups of friend and I have been getting together now for movie nights once a month at each others house. It was an idea that we started at work when we were all talking about each other's favourite movies. We thought it would be a great idea to watch each other's favourite movie. We set up a rotation between each others houses. It works out well. The person who is hosting the movie night makes the main dish for dinner. The others bring dessert or salad and the wine, and we have have a delicious meal, great company and a movie to watch. We decided to add a new element to the rotation last night. We are going to keep a journal book to record the movies that we watched, when we watched them, and our discussion of the movies afterward, including how we rate the movie.
There fore, I am all excited because I have a new project to work on. My task is to design and make a journal book that will be used to record all our favourite movies! I will p[ost what the journal book looks like when I am done!

Greetings! Well, I have heard about this blogging thing for awhile and thought why not try it out and see how it goes. I wasn't too sure what to do my Blog about at first, but as I was sitting down in my Scrap Room, I thought why not relate to my favourite hobby Scrapbooking. I enjoy being creative. This past weekend I went to the Circle Craft Fair at the Pan Pacific Hotel. I went with my creative friend Tara, a Jewlery artist and another friend Daryl, who is also very artistic in many different areas.
I was so inspired by all the other creative people that are out there and self-promoting their work at such a large venue. There were quite a few things that caught my eye. There were these really cool Hats, and since I am always looking for the perfect fit hat, I tried some of these on. But, didn't have much luck. There were also these really cool toques that were very unique, but unfortunately they were quite a bit out of my price range at 200.00 bucks a hat.
The highlight of the trip had to be the discovery of the Old Island Stamp Company. This company is a maker of stamps on Salt Spring Island. They make stamps from Artist designs. There were many different designs that I liked. The thing that I liked the most about this company was the fact that they sold unmounted stamps. I bought four stamps: A large snowflake, small snowflake, a single butterfly, and a grouping of butterflys. Unmounted stamps are definitely a way of buying stamps for the future. They take up much less space as you keep them on a plastic sheet and can take them on and off because of the product that they sell to put on the stamp called EZ Mount.
I got some great ideas, and had some fun playing with all my new products this weekend!
