Stamping and Scrapping with a View

I'm so sorry I have not blogged to share with you in the last few days.  I have not stopped working on classes or preparing for our fantastic Christmas Retreat at Elmhurst. I am still working on all of those things and I am still taking phone calls and answering emails. The element that has changed is my view.
Yes, I am working from a cottage located close to Parry Sound, just off Highway 400, on the shores of beautiful Lake Manitouwabing.
This is my view for this week and yes I have been in the paddle boat and in the lake swimming each day. I love being by the water.
I am here with two of my fabulous friends, Marissa and Ria.  When we arrive at the cottage we take a photo of how the furniture is arranged so that we can put it back.  This is our "before" picture.
We ordered fruit and veggie trays from the local grocery store. We brought folding tables from home and we use the futons as shelving.  One chair gets moved into a bedroom and then "Voila!"  This is what our work area for the week looks like.
So hello from Lake Manitouwabing.  I am still just a phone call or email away.


  1. Looks fabulous!!! So glad you are getting some you time :) Have a great week!!!!

  2. Good luck with your projects this week as I think I would be 'glued' to that water and enjoying the outdoors! What a view!
