Some stuff {UPDATED}

The Benvoulin Church Craft Sale, held at the Benvoulin Heritage Church in mid-November, will not be held this year. After 14 years, I would like to thank all who attended and supported the sale.
Instead
I would like you to join us on Sunday, November 9th, 9 am. to 10 pm. at 2279 Benvoulin Road for A Papercrafting Event!
If you are a seasoned scrapbooker or cardmaker, I know you have stuff that you hoard, or never use, why not rent a table and sell that stuff so you can buy more?
If you are just starting scrapbooking or cardmaking, why not join us at the sale? You will find lots of goodies, new and slightly used to add to your collection.
If you make papercrafts or related items, and would like to rent a table, call me and we’ll talk.
The sale will run till mid-afternoon, we are hoping to have make-n-takes, and cropping time that will run into the evening. If you would like to join us, please call Kelli for more info @ 250-765-4656.


That's pretty vague...in a nutshell, rent a table for $25, sell your gently used scrapbooking/cardmaking related items. Or come and buy some items. This is great for the newbie just starting out, or for the old pro looking for that pack of paper they didn't buy enough of 3 years ago. Either way, be there!

Happy Halloween! I hope everyone has a very safe, not so scary evening! We are doing our tradtional pizza before tricks! Although I guess no one has noticed the tradition because on the way to school I told Emily that I'll pick her and her friend up, we'll have pizza like always, and then take them out trick-or-treating.
Emily: Awesome, we get pizza!
Me: We always get pizza beforehand.
Emily: No, we don't.
Me: Yes, it's our tradition, we have done it every year for over 10 years.
Emily: Well, nobody told me!

Sometimes I forget about how clued out kids can be to their surroundings! Like the time we went to Shaun's parent/teacher interviews a good month or more into the term and went to talk to his band teacher. We were told by Shaun that his name was Mr. Andrews or something like that. So we search and search for this guy only to discover that there isn't one by that name, I think it was Mr. Anderson that we found in the end. But geez...how can a kid be taught by the same guy almost every day of the week and not know his name?



Such sad news...
NEW YORK -- - Joaquin Phoenix is quitting movies to focus on music.
Phoenix's publicist, Susan Patricola, has confirmed his earlier comments to TV's "Extra": The upcoming "Two Lovers" will be his last performance on film.
Says Patricola: "He has said that `Two Lovers' is his last. But this is not strange. Joaquin has been directing music videos and been involved in music for the last number of years."
Phoenix first talked about his decision to "Extra" this week while attending a fundraiser in San Francisco, abruptly ending the interview after the reporter wondered whether he was joking.
The 34-year-old star received Oscar nominations for his roles in "Gladiator" and "Walk the Line," for which he learned to play guitar to channel country legend Johnny Cash.
Phoenix co-stars with Gwyneth Paltrow in the romantic drama "Two Lovers," slated for release Feb. 13.

That's too bad (for me not him b/c I'm sure he'll be very happy with his music stuff)...I've enjoyed his movies.

Your garage sale/crop day sounds like fun...too bad you're sooooo far away from here.
