I hope to make lots more to get rid of some of my paper and craft supplies!

As one of my summer projects, I'm trying to clean up my stash of craft supplies. I have come to realize I have A LOT of paper. Card stock, scrapbook paper, you name it. So I made a couple of card sets for my sisters. Here's a playful set for kids:

I had a chance to eat with my husband on the weekend. This is a big deal! We never have the same schedule, especially when both of us are doing shows.

Last weekend we opened and closed this show! It was a great little project and I was very happy to be a part of it.

This week I was off on vacation. It was a stay-cation, since I couldn't get away. And I even drove up to UBC every day! But not to go to work - instead, I signed up for a week-long writing class through Continuing Ed. UBC is so great and they give us tuition credits to take classes for free, but I have never been able to take advantage of this benefit. So I decided, what the heck, and booked a week of vacation to take the class. It was called "The Craft of Creative Writing" and was basically a crash course in several different writing styles: poetry, auto-biography, fiction and more. It was a diverse group of people and the teacher was really nice. It was only 3 hours each morning, so I was able to other things, like the workshop production of The Black House and the Blue Sky. But I really wanted to just sit and write, so this class was perfect! Some of the ideas and stories I have floating in my head made it on to paper, so I'll keep chiseling away. Talk about a busy week - busy and awesome :)

This year my husband is back at TUTS, music directing Shrek. It was so much fun to be in How to Succeed last year, but a bit too much of a time commitment. So I didn't audition this year. But he's down in the park, and I made it to their first preview on the weekend. Here's a shot of beautiful English Bay:

A couple weeks ago we said adios to another old car. We have had many old cars in the past, and we were still left with this one, our Ford Explorer.
