  1. and we did play flashlights :) hope everyone had a happy weekend

  2. Camping was good. We set up tents, ate, hiked, ate some more, played games, sat and watched the birds, snacked, slept some in the windy night, ate some more, walked some more, lunched, and then headed home. Even with all the food we ate, we still brought some home!!

  3. We did have a great time. So exciting to see what everyone did. Thanks!

  4. Thanks for sharing, so many good things were done for Earth Hour.

    Hope your week is off to a great start :)

  5. We had some fun of our own!

  6. love all of these great follow-ups, nicies!

    great stuff, handmaking superstars!

  7. Thank you for featuring my work and what I had planned for earth hour. The thing is, I ordered my paper lanterns but they didn't arrive in time, and still haven't arrived yet! So looks like I'll be playing with these magical lights this weekend instead.

  8. Thanks so much for the feature Kristal, we had a lovely quiet cuddly evening! :)

  9. Heehaw, rr — thanks for the shout-out. While I was out playing hockey, John was at home; someone rang the doorbell, and it was a couple of kiddos, asking him to to turn out the lights in the apartment — ha! It's great to see conscientiousness in younger generations...


thanks so much for your comments, nicies!
it's a joy to read what everyone writes here.
thank you!
