Heading North!

Hi everyone!

That’s right I’m heading 3 hours north tomorrow to babysit for a week at our Daughter’s home in Saskatoon.  They are heading to The Dominican for a winter holiday so it will be me and our two Grandchildren Avery(6) and Quinn(4).

Two years ago they went to Cuba.  I took nothing with me to make cards and near the end was suffering severe withdrawal!!!!! I vowed I would never go for that long again without my crafting supplies so bought this tote to take my craft things with me.


Now the hard part was trying to figure out what to take???????  Finally I just threw a ton of stuff in and will hope for the best!!!  I just hope my Son in law is there to lift it out of the van!!!!!!!

So between taking Avery to school each day and entertaining Quinn; I hope to be able to do some crafting! (Avery has informed me we will be making her Valentine cards for school this year!)

Have a great week everyone!!!!
