Hurry Up and Wait

Pin It Blogging today from my phone. How cool is that?! Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks :)

Since living in the Pacific Northwest I've learned the lesson of patience while driving. There are many opportunities to learn this lesson - the wait lines for the ferries, while waiting for the various draw bridges to close, or even while waiting for a metro bus or lite-rail. Here we are today waiting yet again on the Hood Canal Bridge while a submarine passes by. I no longer am flustered by the extra 30 - 60 minutes added to my travel schedule. I relish it! I carry a set of knitting needles and a bottle of water & treats for Maggie, and then sit back and enjoy the view. Where else can you watch the sunset over the snowcapped Olympic mountains while a US naval submarine provides a glorious show?

Getting In The Game

Pin It

This month's Blog Hop Challenge over at Papertrey Ink is to create something
using this photo as a source of inspiration.

I love aqua and orange together.
In fact, the grandkids room is decorated using this color scheme.

Here's my entry for the Blog Hop Challenge.

Papertrey Ink Stamp Set: Think Big Favorites #1
Vintage buttons also from Papertrey Ink.
Fingers crossed - hope I win!

Another Make-It-Monday Challenge

Pin It
This week's Make It Monday Challenge from Papertrey Ink is to
make a card using the Poloroid Masking Technique.
I had never used this technique before but really like how
it comes out on a plain white card.
Here are two versions of my take using the Poloroid Masking Technique.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
