get some rest.

Days have been long and difficult. On February 7th, my husband, Bill, had unexpectedly passed away. Manitoba friends and family from near and far dropped everything to assist in the very best ways possible. Two new friends from America, who I without a doubt consider family, provided immense amounts of support and visited their pal, while better getting to know the gal Bill moved on up to spend his life with. They visited not for the last time, never for the last time.

With the massive amounts of help from my very best friends, a crowd-funding page has been made to help with the costs of Bill's service. Please take a look and read our story. Should you be willing to donate, share the page, or keep us in your thoughts - any bit of help is greatly, greatly, appreciated.

I have taken a wee break from crafting, but am well-aware of my healthy, creative outlets. I strive to utilize what I still have, day by day. I do hope to post more when timing feels better.

Tacos, crafting, headaches.

It's been a real long week. I've learned a lot about UPS and their sucking capabilities, I've fallen even harder in love with Canada Post and USPS, and I've finally blogged about my favourite fish tacos.

I've been keeping busy with apparent UPS headaches, positive immigration news, and helping organize the next WEST event! Check out the event info HERE and RSVP, will you?
