I really am still here , just have had a hectic few days.. Had a great weekend with the boys and had to do a small order for a customer who forgot to order ribbons that they needed for today..Took the boys to Ladysmith days on Saturday and then we had a picnic on the beach at Mill Bay... We all enjoyed it and the weather was great...

I thought that Erin would enjoy this craft since she works at South Cowichan Eyecare..This video is on how to make Eyeglass holders.. Great for those who never seem to remember where they put their glasses.... When I was younger I used to think that only old people had these.. But I must be getting old cause I think these are a pretty good idea.....
You can make a pair for every outfit....

I am going to take pictures of my deck tomorrow and post them this week so that you are able to see what I do with my spare time.. Which I do not seem to have a lot of lately...
