S’up with you ?!
It’s been eons since I’ve made a post and while I’ve started a few, they seemed harder to finish than ever. I’ve always wanted Boomdeeadda to be a place to share happy things, fun things, good times.
Like a crazy fabulous train trip with Mr B
For my birthday in June and to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, we took The Rocky Mountaineer through the Canadian Rockies to Vancouver. With stunning views out every window, wonderful meals, super fun hosts and non-stop wine service, there’s nothing like this luxury trip. Visit the link for a peek at the whole experience. It’s super special!
But then summer came along and news that my beloved job at Urban was ending !
My friend and store owner, Lori, was ready to retire. It’s a conundrum to be happy for your sweet friend and sad about an ending. The entire month of July was a Store-wide closing sale. It kicked my butt. There were tears and hugs as we all feel like family. After the dust settled, we got together on a beautiful day to celebrate our friendships and wish Lori well.
Hold the door, in the ‘nth hour, there was a buyer for Urban!
While Edmonton still has Urban Scapbook as a crafting destination, I’m no longer working there. I gave it a go, but it’s very different from what we had going on. So for me, it wasn’t a good fit. The good news, I’m getting some long delayed projects done. Also a wonderful, all-be-it short, visit with my sweet BFF Alys in San Jose !
Where else does one find a good project? Ikea of course!
One of the first projects as an
unemployed retired gal, was to organize my craft room. I wanted all my stash to be tucked away, but accessible. Also look pretty but be functional. I didn’t want to spend a ton, but it has to be sturdy. While it all sounds quite contradictory, Ikea ticked all those boxes.
With Blossum’s expert advice, I was able to put it together in one evening. You don’t need fancy tools, which is good, because I don’t have any 😀 ha!
After putting in more drawers, Mr B helped me carry it up to my crafting room and then the fun began.
Fast forward a day and a half and I’m a happy crafter. I’ve put two Ikea units back to back to make a landing space for a lot of stuff that used to be on my work desk. It feels light, bright and inviting.
You’re so kind to stop by! Life has been an adventure, with good news, bad news, good news.
Next time, a walk-a-bout the Boom-room and a Christmas scrapbook layout with Crate Paper’s, Snow and Cocoa.
