I made another candy basket for a fundraiser.
This time it was for FCP's Tapped, where you could buy a ticket and drink as much beer, wine and cider as you wanted, all night! I manned the silent auction table, and the event was a lot of fun! I met some cool people and helped out and got free chips and salsa, win-win-win!

This is rather puzzling, isn't it?! This puzzle is so hard!! But I do love polar bears.

One thing I miss about being on Christmas vacation is all the movies I saw. I took my nephew and niece to see Sing, it was very cute. I also miss all the stuff I binge watched on Netflix - including the Mindy Project, which I recently watched from start to finish! I loved Mindy Kaling on the Office, and read both of her books before tuning into her TV show. Thank goodness it's all on Netflix, I couldn't bear to wait for new episodes to come out. I am in loved with her and Danny Castellano - it's rather unhealthy. Now I've finished watching and have to wait for the new one to come out on Feb. 14, argh!

I should find time to take these two out to the movies again, even though they are popcorn-eating hooligans.

Hot water bottle

My hubbie got me this as a small Christmas present. It had been so cold over Christmas, with all the snow and stuff. This hot water bottle is such a simple idea - and such a life saver. I put it on my feet when I'm crocheting on the couch, and fill it up to warm my bed. Perfect!

Another Ripple Blanket

I finished another ripple blanket, this time to donate to TUTS' fundraiser.
My husband helped design this one, by picking out the order of colours and deciding on the cream in between. He is sad to see the blanket leave our cozy couch, but it's for a good cause.
The Avengers are lounging away on it, getting ready to travel to their new home.

Over the weekend, my niece Brianna hosted this event, Crescendo.
I organized the silent auction prizes.
It was very well done and well attended - just a night of sharing talent and listening to good music, all for a great cause.
Selfie time! Me and the hubs sang a song together (him on guitar) and he accompanied Bri for one song (on piano).
I supervised this hooligan, who is hoping to make her stage debut soon - ha!
Here we are with the lady of the hour. It was a really great event!

Candy Basket

This weekend, my niece is having a fundraiser called Crescendo. It's on honour of her piano teacher, who passed away from cancer. She'll be doing some classical piano pieces, and her friends will do some musical theatre songs. And me and my hubs are going to do a tune on the piano.
I made a few baskets up and collected some items for a small silent auction. I found this idea on Pinterest - a candy basket. It's FILLED with CANDY and might not make it out of my house...!!
